Toronto Can Be Soul Crushing Or Like A Magical Rainbow - Tuesday Shuffle

Magical Mystery Tour - Cheap Trick.  Boo.  Few things get on my nerves more than a Beatles cover.

A Hymn For A Lost Soul - Crippled Black Phoenix.  Oh, here's another thing that gets on my nerves.  I don't like church music.  Don't put church music on your progressive rock album and pass it off as edgy.  Also, do not piss on my leg and tell me it's raining.  That wouldn't be cool, man.

Head Crusher - Megadeth.  I bought a Head Crusher themed long sleeved…

I'm Writing About A Hooligan With Big Lips That Willed His Fortune To A Horse - Monday Shuffle

Apollo I: The Writing Writer - Coheed & Cambria.  This all fine and dandy but I would have preferred a track from the new album.  That album is the domination.  Ah, I momentarily forgot that this was the domination as well.  Gonna spend the day tomorrow with the heaviest prog playlist every compiled.  It's going to include Coheed, Baroness, Gojira, Queensryche, Mastodon, King's X, Rush, and Iron Maiden.  Maiden is among the proggiest of prog bands in case you were…

Everything Is Cool - Styx.  No it isn't.  6.2 of 10.

Heroes Never Sing Of Violence And Give Mindful Advice - Wednesday Shuffle

The Right Side Of My Mind - Queensryche.  One of the more tolerable late model Queensryche songs.  Still self important and douchey though.

Honky Tonk Heroes (Like Me) - Honky Tonk Heroes.  Nothing special about it.  I kinda expect more out of a super group like this.  

Ooh Song - King's X.  The self titled album gets a bad rap but this song is all around superb.

Violence Fetish - Disturbed.  Ugh.  I was completely enraged when the lead singer of…

You Know I'm Patient So You Shout It Up Every Morning. - Tuesday Shuffle

Patience - Guns N' Roses.  Jimmy Kimmel Live is promoting Axl's upcoming appearance on the show as his first televised interview in twenty years.  Jimmy Kimmel Live is a collective of goddamned liars.  That Metal Show had Axl on a year ago.  It wasn't that entertaining, but still.  This song is overrated.

Pump It Up - Elvis Costello.  Car companies have completely co-opted 70's alternative rock for their commercials.  I want to buy a Toyota now.

Who Will Sacrifice Their Life To Rust In The Undertow? - Monday Shuffle

(Flesh & Blood) Sacrifice - Poison.  I got disturbingly happy when this popped up.  Giddy is an appropriate word for what I'm feeling.  Great good timing song.  I may go see them next summer.  If Bret has another "episode" that makes him unable to speak or scat or thank the troops but somehow retains the ability to sing I WILL be there.

Who Will Lead Us? - The Gutter Twins.  The Gutter Twins have become an afterthought since the Afghan Whigs got back together.  Definitely…

The Free Babies Will Be Gone After You Take One - Thursday Shuffle

Afterman - Coheed & Cambria.  I stole the hell out of this song.  It was a must have after hearing it on Rolling Stone yesterday.  Fantastic song, one of their best.  Will be buying the album when it comes out in a couple of weeks.

Take A Big Bite - Ratt.  It's all over the place, sinister and chorus laden.  Ratt does both well but haven't been able to combine them.  I like the darker moments of the song best.

Free Wheelin' - Cinderella.  Cinderella is the…

I Hate Bleeding But Love Slamming In Cigarettes - Tuesday Shuffle

Bleeding Muddy Water - Mark Lanegan Band.  Not feeling it.  6.4 of 10.

Cigaro - System Of A Down.  Again, a pile of meh.  6.4 of 10.

Walk Right In - Dr. Hook.  Crimeny.  More ambivalence.  6.4 of 10

Slo-Motion Slam - Infectious Grooves.  Sarsippius' Ark is jam packed with mediocrity like this.  6.4 of 10.

Hate & War - The Clash.  I'm not stopping the shuffle until an 8.0+ kinda jam song shows up.  This isn't one.  6.4 of…

There Are Jewels Under The Old Floor And Hate In The Headlights Of The New Car - Monday Shuffle

Jewel Of Summertime - Audioslave.  Audioslave is a surprisingly proficient funk band.  The new Soundgarden better be spectacular.  (DEMANDS!) They had nearly two decades to come up with tasty beats and killer riffs.  I will be livid if they experiment with funk in any fashion.  

Hate Train - Metallica.  Beyond Magnetic is more enjoyable than Death Magnetic.  There better be a new Metallica album soon or I will throw a tantrum here in my home office.  (DEMANDS!) I might record…

The Futuristic Jet Cannot Descend, Commit A Crime, Love Or Wander - Wednesday Shuffle

The Wandering - Ryan Bingham.  Just picked up the new Bingham CD today.  I was more than a little skeptical after hearing Heart Of Rhythm but it is, overall, way superior to Junky Star.  This song isn't my favorite either.  That may be clouding my overall recollection of that album.  Either way, anything Ryan Bingham is pretty damn good.

Lovecrimes - The Afghan Whigs.  I'm an admitted Afghan Whigs maniac, they are my favorite band, but this version is 1000 times better than…

Swinging At Church Is Like Camping During The Day Or Shooting A Killer - Tuesday Shuffle

Church - Outkast.  8.7 of 10.  nah, this is a full on 9.0 of 10.  Big Boi ain't bad.

Everyday - Dave Matthews Band.  7.8 of 10 and I am ashamed of myself for that.  It does end in a turdish manner.

Six Shooter - Queens Of The Stone Age.  6.0 of 10.  Filler on an otherwise great record.

Swingtown - The Steve Miller Band.  I've heard and enjoyed this song a hundred times but had no idea it was the Steve Milller Band or what the song was titled.  7.6…

People Are Going To Some Big Party Tonight - Tuesday Shuffle

Go - Pearl Jam.  Remember when Eddie Vedder was all fat and red when Pearl Jam played this song at the VMA's?  Yeah, that was cool.  There were no fat, red faced rock stars at this year's VMA's.  Hell, there was nothing memorable about the show at all this year.  Young people are terrible.

Movin' Cool (The After Party) - Outkast.  Big ups to Outkast for not bastardizing "the" by spelling it Da or Tha.  Classy move, gents.  Smooth jazz Outkast isn't my favorite.  It's what they…

If The Mississippi Floods, It Will Kill The Lambs Quicker Than A Gun - Monday Shuffle

The Killing Words - Queensryche.  Queensryche should be ashamed of everything they've done since 1995.  This, and all of Rage For Order, is outright goodness though.  You'd think they would have been able to hit that goodness chord once or twice over 17 years of mediocrity.  Nope.  They couldn't do it.  Maybe they'll find their groove now that Tate has been removed.  I have a feeling that he was the poison.

Mississippi Moon - King's X.  Again, a Mississippi moon is…
