If it's tuesday afternoon, this must be a meme
Via about a hundred people, but most recently Jim:
10 albums randomly selected from my collection:
Well, I'm at work so I'm selecting ten random albums from the iPod.
- Anthrax - Attack of the Killer B's
Startin up a Posse'. Milk. Keep it in the Family. I'm the Man. It doesn't get much better than this if you're into Anthrax.
- Billy Idol's Greatest Hits
What? He rocked. I still have fantasies about that sneer and spiked hair.
- Clawfinger - Clawfinger
Scandanavian metal with lyrics like:
Nobody perfect but I'm pretty fucking close
and I'm here to give you all a heavy heavenly close
I think you better listen cos I know who you are
and I think that you should treat me like a superstar
It's the kind of stuff you listen to when you feel like dropping on anvil on someone's head.
- Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends
Long Island emo. Decent album that I can take in small doses. The double vocal thing gets tiring after a while. Update: Joel mentions in the comments that TBS lost about half their band in between this album and the follow up. Tell All Your Friends is infinitely better than Where You Want To Be, which seems to have been made with marketing in mind. So if you're going to try ayn TBS, pick something from TAYF (I'll upload a track tonight).
- Strapping Young Lad - City
You haven't heard hard until you've heard Strapping Young Lad. Oh My Fucking God is the most dangerous song on earth.
- Limp Bizkit - Three Dollar Bill Y'all
Shut up. I know, I'm always beating down on Fred. But this album was pretty decent. It was before Fred starting whining instead of screaming. Before he discovered the nookie and before Britney broke his heart.
- Mindless Self Indulgence - Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy
How to explain MSI? I can't. Here:
bitches love me cause they know that i can rock
bitches love me cause they know that i can rhyme
bitches love me cause they know that i can fuck
bitches love me cause they know that im on time
throughout the projects
Like that. They're fun, but not exactly work friendly. I skip around MSI a lot when I'm in my office.
- Combustible Edison -Four Rooms Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Best instrumental soundtrack ever. The movie itself was great, but listening to this music makes everything seem like fun.
- Black Label Society - 1919 Eternal
Zakk Wylde owns you.
- Misfits - Box Set Disc 4
Not so much work friendly, either, but I just can't resist a little Angelfuck during the day.
What is the total amount of music files on your computer?
At home, about 24 gigs. On the Ipod, I have 8 gigs.
The last CD you bought is:
Brand New, Your Favorite Weapon. Both my kids own this CD, but I wanted my own copy. How many times have I mentioned this Long Island band in the past two months alone? I'm obsessed. YFW is their first album and it's chock full of great song writing. While they matured greatly - both musically and lyrically - on their second album, Deja Entendu - YFW still has some of their best moments, like Soco Amaretto Lime (which I'll offer an mp3 of tonight). Some might classify Brand New as emo, but I don't want to pigeon hole them like that. Think Dashboard Confessional with more depth.
What is the song you last listened to before this message?
Snot, Snooze Button
Five songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you
# Weezer, Undone
# Toadies, Tyler
# Faith No More, Midlife Crisis
# Incubus - Redefined
# Quicksand, Thorn in my Side
[These are five songs that I've been listening to a lot lately. Songs that mean a lot to me would take up too much time, and I've already started working on that, anyhow]
Who are you gonna pass this stick to?
Whoever feels like fetching it.
