    Step 1: Put your iTunes on shuffle.
    Step 2: Post the first lines from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarassing.
    Step 3: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
    Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

    1.Your eyes, follow me here. Your eyes, seamless and sure.
    2.(Hey hey hey hey!) Won't you come see about me? I'll be alone, dancing you know it baby.
    3. It's always something in the way. It's always something getting through.
    4. Violence Rules! Violence Rules , guns are cool, and we've got guns in our school!
    5.What do you want from me? Sacrifice my heart so that you can be set free.
    6.Oh berlin! Your heart has been, drawn and quartered again. The east and the west were divided by, a wall that staunched their freedom.
    7. Another weekend, another blank memeory.
    8. (SKA!) Middle class white boys trying hard to annoy, All we really needed is a ticket to ride, Fighting with no-one at all that's ok.
  • Ian MacKaye

    I really enjoyed reading this interview With Ian MacKaye. It was funny and there are a lot of good stories. Maybe you will enjoy reading it too?


    Do you ever think Ian MacKaye looks like... this one dorky kid you knew in grade school? Or maybe an awkward first cousin or second cousin of yours?

    Anyway you should read the interview because there are lots of nice anecdotes about: Fugazi, Minor Threat, Teen Idles, Henry Rollins, Bikini Kill, Beat Happening/Calvin Johnson, Bad Brains and more. Eat it up, yum.

    this is one of those random 'tribute posts'

    seriously, why is Gray Matter so unbelievably awesome. When i picked up the food for thought/take it back comp from dischord...well, idk it's kinda really really really amazing. This band just kinda exemplifies what fun hardcore should sound like. I mean they're probably a litttttle emotional for that genre, but i just kinda feel like flailing about wildly in the worst of my white boy dance stylings every time i listen to them.

    other little known but amazing bands
    Teen Idles also, just plain fun. Especially adventure. Probably one of the best songs ever to drive too (although I only have like one of their eps and i should probably get that lp i saw they have from my roomate)

    Skewbald it's like embrace meets minor threat. I'm pretty sure they have a grand total of two songs, but damn are those two songs good. at least 50% of them are absolutely amazing.

    Ignition actually this is just an appeal for slsk or aim or somethin on this album. …
  • To Nick

    Nick's a great guy really. I saw him a lot at Wall of Sound back when he worked there.
    He always had something new to talk about, another band that is or was great, and he's one of the very few people on earth that can intentionally make me laugh, because he was constantly so witty and charismatic, though wasn't the type you'd expect his aura to come from.

    I think the first time I ever saw him round I was looking through the 77 punk singles when I saw Anarchy in the UK's second pressing on EMI by Sex Pistols and he drove me to buying it. Now, whenever I find myself lacking money that's much needed, I think back to that time and thoroughly regret it, though Nick always seems to have made sure I left Wall of Sound with no more money.

    For the next 7 or 8 months he went on to develop my musical taste.
    Among these artists I have to put these down quickly, as I have work soon. He introduced me to the Raveonettes, and put Whip It On on tape as a compilation for me, also with The Kills, Bomboras

  • best punk rock movie ever?

    6 Jan 2006, 17:33 by tarbox


    some friends of mine (who'll be in it) have brought my attention to a movie that will be shown at sundance called "american hardcore" that i'm just jonesing to see. not at sundance, not me. but wherever and whenever i get the chance.

    i mean. this movie is about 'my' bands... this was 'my scene.' i've saw at least 2/3 of the bands that will be in this movie during that time period. this scene had a indelible and remarkably positive effect on the lens through which i view the entire world... and it was stinkin' heaps of fun, too.

    following is a list of the included bands according to the movie's website i linked to by its title above:

    Adolescents (Orange County, CA)
    Agnostic Front (New York, NY)
    Articles of Faith (Chicago, IL)
    Bad Brains (Washington, DC/ New York, NY)
    Bad Religion (San Fernando Valley, CA)
    Battalion of Saints (San Diego, CA)
    Big Boys (Austin, TX)
    Black Flag (Hermosa Beach, CA)
    Channel 3 (Orange County, CA)
  • Why do people get excited about a total crap? :/

    19 Dec 2005, 20:34 by Bonduelle

    I recently decided to be more ambitious and try to listen something more sophisticated than Sister Act OST, but seems like I just can't. I downloaded some Staight Edge Classics, like Teen Idles, but their records are generally bootlegs of very bad quality, with a definetely NOT tallented lead singer who keeps on shouting all the time :/ I know punk and related have to be a bit rough...but come on, if you can't sing, don't make other people listen to you :/

    Oh, and IMHO Ramones are pathetic. I don't get the whole phenomenon about them - most of rock stars wear their t-shirts.
