16 Nov 2007, 10:37 by Pope_Jimbob_III1. How did you get into 29?
Queen. Heavy airplay of Bohemian Rhapsody around the time Wayne's World came out.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
The Thermals. How We Know music video on the local music channel. Thought their bassist was cute.
3. What's your favorite lyric by 33?
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. Nothing specific. Whatever Conrad's screaming about at the moment is fine by me.
4. What is your favorite album by 49?
Interpol - Turn on the Bright Lights. A thousand curses 'pon the thief who broke into my car and stole it.
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
Gogol Bordello. Just one. Bought another, but it was used and a section of it was scratched beyond all hope, so I had to return it.
6. What is your favorite song by 50?
The Breeders. Either Cannonball or No Aloha.
7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad?
Tool. Yeah. jimmy.
8. What is your favorite song by 15?
6 Aug 2007, 23:10 by redhaloI went to my dashboard and was pleasantly surprised to find all 15 of my friends just listened spots occupied with "just listened". First time I'd seen this in the year that I've been here!
They have been chosen as contestants in my 10 Tracks contest.
Fear not there is no physical activity on your part involved. All you have to do is hope the first ten songs played on your radio score enough points to achieve the highest score.
Artists will be rated based on my top 500 artists as such:
Artists that appear between 1 and 100 will be given 10 points
Artists that appear between 101 and 200 will be given 7 points
Artists that appear between 201 and 300 will be given 5 points
Artists that appear between 301 and 400 will be given 3 points
Artists that appear between 401 and 500 will be given 1 points
Artists that do not appear on my list will be disqualified and not eligible for any points whatsoever!
However, I have captured a list of bonus artists/song (by any artist)…
9 Jul 2007, 18:23 by Inertia_90I will never forget the first time I heard Gigantic. I was a freshman in high school and a major Nirvana acolyte. Since I had given and bought Kurt Cobain's journal (which I still feel rather dirty about owning; I adore Courtney Love, but it's in very bad taste to release your dead husband's private diaries), I began checking out some of the bands he namechecks throughout. After Daydream Nation by Sonic Youth, I moved on to Pixies, downloading "Gigantic."
SIDE NOTE: This is proof that downloading isn't going to kill the record industry. I illegally downloaded "Gigantic," sampled the rest of the tracks on Amazon, read countless positive reviews and decided to invest $10 in buying a copy. As long as there are good records, someone will buy them. On the other hand, why should I pay $15 for the fucking Fergie record that has one decent (and I'm being charitable there) single and a bunch of filler? It's bad music that's killing the record industry. Yay for tangents!

1 May 2006, 13:37 by MattWhitworthLo,
Just been listening to a few B-sides from Pixies and Nirvana (and Smashing Pumpkins).
Here's a good list - and these kind of tracks never get mentioned!
Velvety Instrumental Version - annoying yet addictive
Wave of Mutilation (UK Surf)
River Euphrates - the B-side version has that extra kick
I've Been Waiting for You (neat Neil Young cover - great intro riff)
These tracks are pretty underrated:
Oh The Guilt
Even In His Youth - the bridge is the coolest part ("He was born for your crew...")
That's enough for one day I reckon. Shame most bands don't do B-sides anymore :/
11 Jan 2006, 11:09 by ramblin_man1. REPENT!!! (Caribou, this almost made me shit myself when I saw them at Reading last year)
2. TAAAAAAAAAAAME!!! (Tame)
3. NAMED EXTINCTION!!! WAAAAH!!! WAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!! (The Sad Punk)
4. AAAAAAAAA! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! (Vamos, preferably the live version on the B-sides collection)
5. The whole of Rock Music
6. The whole of Something Against You
7. Then GOD IS SEVEN!!! (Monkey Gone to Heaven)
8. I BREAK THE WALLS! (Gouge Away)
9. RIDE! THE! TIGER!!! (River Euphrates, really has to be the version on the B-sides collection again)
10. YOU ARE THE SON OF A MOTHERFUCKER / YOU ARE THE SON OF INCESTUOUS UNION (Nimrod's Son, not really a scream but demanded to be included anyway)
