Inspired by Glen’s earlier post, I hit shuffle on my ipod and this is what came up….
Black Lips- “Born to be a Man” (2006)- The best way to kick off the list.
Bill Hicks- “My One Man Show” (1990)- Another one of my favorites!
Pixies- “Here Comes Your Man” (1989)- Wow, the third song in a row with the word “man” in the title.
Beat Happening- “Black Candy” (1989)- The first BH song I ever heard; one of their greatest offerings.
Descendents- “Clean Sheets” (live) (1987)- Damn, I’d love to have been present for this recording.
Elvis Costello- “Accidents Will Happen” (1979)- FUN FACT: In E.T. (1982), the character Michael (Robert MacNaughton) can be heard singing this in the scene when he comes home from school and is looking in the refrigerator.
Rage Against the Machine- “Mic Check” (1999)- Top five best 90s bands, end of story.
Minutemen- “This Ain’t No Picnic” (1984)- A lot of 80s underground shit in this mix.
Primus- “My Name is Mud” (1993)- I remember hearing this as a kid and thinking it was the most fucked up thing I had ever heard, until Frank Zappa….
Hüsker Dü- “Turn On the News” (1984)- Maybe the huskers’ best.
I would not say this list is totally representative of my tastes in music, but I enjoy everything here and I have for quite some time.
