Debonair Mexicans With Bottled Chemicals End Up In The Swamp - Thursday Shuffle

Swamp Song - Tool.  I don't pay nearly enough attention to Tool.  On paper they should be one of my favorite bands.  Being prog-ish, bass driven and Nihilistic are all positives in my book.  Kinda put them in the same boat as Sevendust.  I really like everything they do but never think to spend time with the music.  I may just have an all Tool & Sevendust day soon.

Mexico - Butthole Surfers.  I have very little patience for overt weirdness but the Butthole Surfers get a…

All Gothic Poets Forget About Stars - Wednesday Shuffle

We're All Gonna Die (feat. Iggy Pop) - Slash.  Fairly decent for a song that has Iggy Pop on vocals but probably the worst song on Slash's solo disc.  Why do people like Iggy Pop?  He's an emaciated weirdo with not a lot of talent.  Slash cranks out an okay solo.

Soon Forget - Pearl Jam.  Millionaire Eddie Vedder whining about how millionaires are shitty.  Go buy a new t-shirt Eddie.  You can afford it.  It's also a bullshit ukulele song too.  Meh.

American…

The Scary Red Bones Are Not Burning - Tuesday Shuffle

Untitled [Red Dot] - Pearl Jam.  Steel drums should never be used by a rock band.  Ever.

She Loves Me Not - Faith No More.  FNM does R&B pretty damn well.  They may be the best most rounded band to ever record.  FNM can do anything.  Rock's Little Engine That Could.

Roll The Bones - Rush.  I love this song.  I loved this era of Rush too.  I also love gambling so this song should be the best thing I've ever heard.  The rapping in the middle kinda throws me…

The Transition Away From Voodoo Was Not Atlanta's Best Day - Sunday Shuffle

Atlanta - Stone Temple Pilots.  Pretty sure that I talked about my disdain for this song before but I'm actually kind of enjoying it right now.  It's capturing a mood.  Even the whistling at the end didn't send me into a blind rage.

Transitions - Beastie Boys.  Again, a song I generally dislike seems to be hitting the spot.  Jazzy instrumental Beasties are my least favorite Beasties but this is hitting the spot.  There is a soulful undercurrent here, a Curtis Mayfield vibe.…

Cities Are All Full Of Easy Creeps That Will Hurt You - Friday Shuffle.

Head Creeps - Alice In Chains.  It's far from my favorite AIC song.  It would work in a pinch though.  It's the methadone to an AIC junkie's Man In The Box.  Head Creeps would cure the sick but not give you the nods.

This Is Gonna Hurt - Sixx A.M.  This album hasn't grown on me the way I had hoped it would.  This song is almost the rock sauce though.  It may be the singer that turns me off to Sixx A.M.  He's a soulless Chad Kroger.  Or I should say he sounds like almost every…

The Devil Has Fans In The I.R.S. And Among Dosed Gigolos - Wednesday Shuffle

American Gigolo - Weezer.  I read the title of this before it started playing and was misread it as Just A Gigolo.  I was disappointed for a moment that it wasn't the Diamond Dave classic.  It was just a moment though because I do like this song.  Don't know why Weezer got tagged with the hipster label.  They're just a really good rock band that isn't afraid of the rock.

Heroic Dose - TV On The Radio.  Dear Science was pretty good but this French talky bullshit should have…

Black Rocks Can Be Jewels To The Blind Or Coal For The Night - Tuesday Shuffle

Black Curtains - Megadeth.  Off of Youthanasia.  It's okay I guess.  There are much better songs on that album.  Dave seems to be pretty full of himself with the vocals.  He's kinda hamming up the scratchy evilness he wants us to think he has.  Otherwise, it's too basic.  Nothing really noteworthy.

I Wanna Rock - Twisted Sister.  My young nephews saw this video the other day and got very excited.  Guess Twisted Sister transcends generations.  This song is good and it always…

Get Me Into The Groove Baby And I Wont End It - Monday Shuffle

Baby Did A Bad, Bad Thing - Chris Isaak.  Probably the best track on Forever Blue.  It's equally sinister and wistful.  It's also as close to a hard rock song as Chris is gonna get.  It's not really rockabilly either, just a real rock song.  It's just full on good. 

The End Complete III, The End Complete - Coheed & Cambria.  Two for two in tonight's shuffle!  This isn't a hardcore progressive track but it's exactly what I want to hear from C&C.  Wait a second, it is a…

Dee's Child and Mama Are In The Electric Tree - Sunday Shuffle

The Trees - Rush.  I think this may be some J R R Tolkien Elvin Funklar bullshit.  It could be some hippy bullshit too.  Who knows.  Luckily the song transcends bullshit for the most part and is a listenable Rush song.  It's not their best by any means but listenable.  

Dee - Ozzy Osbourne.  It's some classical interlude filler stuff from Randy.  It's labeled a bonus track.  Some bonus.

Mama, I'm Coming Home - Ozzy Osbourne.  This is one of the few tolerable…

Will You Come Back In a Million Years When The Stakes Lower? - Tuesday Shuffle

Will Do - TV On The Radio.  I've tried my darndest to like Nine Types Of Light but I can't do it.  It's boring. This is one of the better tracks and I am reticent to proclaim it's decency.  I keep waiting for something interesting to talk about, but it doesn't happen.  This is a vanilla pudding song.  I know that it exists but never talk about it.

Come Back - Pearl Jam.  More boring bullshit.  I was amp'd up for hardcore thrash or some freak-out-weirdness tonight and I get two…

Chef Mamacita Is Ready To Fix Some Ragoo - Monday Shuffle

Mamacita - Outkast.  Huh, I don't know about this.  I've listened to Aquemini quite a few times but I have no recollection of this song.  Kids are rapping now.  Children have no business being rappers.  Remember Kris Kross?  They were terrible and made me hate children rappers for an eternity.  Andre finally comes in with some correction.  It's too slow though.  Slow rap is kinda shitty.  Its also over 5 minutes.  There are very few rap songs worth more than 3 and a half minutes.  Pretty…

City Cowboys Are Such Deceitful Ones - Monday Shuffle

Midnight Cowboy - Faith No More.  Exactly what it says.  This is the them to Midnight Cowboy with a few rock n' roll embellishments.  It's great zone out music but has little value beyond that.  I'm on the prowl for some action tonight.

No Such Thing - John Mayer.  How the hell did this dude get the reputation of being a guitar genius?  This is just bland pop.  I'm skipping this, it's making me angry.

Paradise City - Guns N' Roses.  Here's some of that rock n…

I'll Remove The Crazy If You Give Me Something To Hold On To - Monday Shuffle

Giving Spotify Radio a shot tonight.  This is the Tesla channel.

I'll Be There - LA Guns.  Wow, I have no recollection of this song but it is greasy, sleazy and rockin'.  It makes me think of a totally stripped down Guns song with shitty production.  I actually like it.  The album is called Shrinking Violet.  Gonna listen to it all later.

Lazy Days, Crazy Nights - Tesla.  Tesla can't miss.  This is great stuff.

Love Removal Machine - Great White.…

Enough, Eating Sweet Spanish Chicken Is Gonna Make Her Leave - Sunday Shuffle

Had Enough - Tesla.  Niceness!  I recently picked up Psychotic Supper and this is the first time I've heard this song since the cassette I had broke in my car in 1992.  Tesla is one of my go to bands.  Never been disappointed by any of their releases.  The can be surprisingly metal too.  There is plenty of blues influence here but the balls out metal negates all of that.

Half Steering, Half Eating Ice Cream - Neptunes.  This one came up on the shuffle too recently.  Gonna skip…

Cowboys Still Favor Disease Free, Living Beef. Tuesday Shuffle

More Magic-

Alive - Pearl Jam.  I saw this video on Headbanger's Ball late one Saturday night in 1991.  I went to the record store the next day to buy the album.  They didn't have Ten in stock.  Not because of demand mind you, it was because nobody gave a damn yet.  Yessir, I am a Pearl Jam pioneer.  Ten is magic top to bottom.  Anyone that says Nirvana released a better album in 1991 is a goddamn liar.

A Favor House Atlantic - Coheed & Cambria.  This was…

Monday Shuffle - Magic Albums

I've set up a playlist of 15 albums that I consider "magic" and will be running the shuffle from that today.  By "magic" I mean an album that made me a lifelong fan of that band upon the first listen and albums that I will listen to in full at least once a month.  There are my favorite songs from my favorite bands.

Body Talk - Ratt.  Out of the Cellar was my first Ratt album but Dancin' Undercover made me a maniac.  It was probably this song that did it too.  It's metal.  The…

Sunday Shuffle 12/11

The Threshingfloor - Wovenhand.  I stumbled across this band on Spotify and actually picked up this CD used on Amazon.  There is a definite Moroccan flavor to this song.  Usually that world music shit just pisses me off but this is actually more than tolerable.  In fact I'd recommend this band to just about anyone that likes music.  They may get heavy with the Jesus sentiment too so there's that.

Rise Up & Fight - Crippled Black Phoenix.  Another band I found on…

Ingesting Alien Blood At Midnight Will End Your Linear Concept Of Surroundings - Thursday Shuffle

End Tapes - The Joy Formidable.  So a band that I really like is on the Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn soundtrack.  It's more than a little enraging.  The Joy Formidable isn't for love sick teenagers.  It's for middle aged music nerds that couldn't care less about Twilight.  I guess this song is a little more accessible than most of their stuff and they do need an audience.  It should have been a different venue to introduce this band to the public though.

Young Blood - Naked…

Poems Of Living, Singing, Love, Wounds, And Revenge - Wednesday Shuffle

I Just Wanna Live - Good Charlotte.  Gonna mix things up today and use Google Music instead of iTunes for the Shuffle.  There are going to be a lot of songs I have never heard or even care for showing up.  That includes this song.  I have actually seen Good Charlotte in concert but couldn't tell you a single song of their.  This seems like it might be a cover.  Looking it up.  Nope, it's their original.  Good enough I suppose.

Undersea Poem - Menlna que Corre.  Ugh,…
