Get Me Outta Here - Jet. Top notch Aussie rock. Jet is passed off as a cut rate AC/DC act but they're definitely more. This is high energy and has more of a Stones influence than anything else. Wonder if they've released anything lately. Gonna browse Spotify later.
Karma Chameleon - Culture Club. Boy George is a homosexual. He was the singer of Culture Club. He also beats imprisoned twinks with heavy chains. Boy George is well rounded. Honestly, I think Karma…

Burn It Down - Five Finger Death Punch. RARRRRR! I AM ANGRY! RARRRRRRRR! Ugh, I'd love this 20 years ago. FFDP is all over the place, this song is really aggressive metal, other songs veer into prog territory and one or two are made for rock radio. Pick a genre assholes.
Now - Days Of The New. I think the lead singer of this group got all methy and quit making music. It's very much a 90's kinda song. He's probably better off as a drug addict than a desperate shill…Continue

You Are The Saint, I Am The Sinner - Winger. Reb Beach is a woefully underrated guitarist. I know he's appreciated in the melodic rock circles but he shoulda been put up there with George Lynch and Warren DeMartini. Guess it's the stigma of being in Winger that held him back.
RV - Faith No More. It's a novelty song that would have ruined any other album. Luckily it was on Angel Dust and one clunker doesn't take away from the mastery of that disc. Even the rocking part…Continue

Don't Stop Believin' - Journey. That guy whose wife ran off with Neil Schon can never attend a sporting event, go to a bar, watch TV or even shop for groceries without being reminded of her infidelity. Journey might be the most powerful organization in the world. They're ubiquitous. I really like this song too.
Best Of Me - Ratt. This song could have been on Dancin' Undercover. Hell, it could have been the lead single on any of their albums. That cheesy "wild wild…Continue

Respect - Train. I have had this song on iTunes for atleast 7 years and this is the first time I recall hearing it. It's pretty bland and forgettable so that's probably the be the reason.
Rollin' Stoned - Great White. Decent enough bluesy rock that's expected from Great White. Nothing exceptional.
Looking Down The Barrel Of A Gun - Beastie Boys. Haven't heard this in forever. Best track on Paul's Boutique. Very much a precursor to Check Your Head and…Continue

A Thousand Years - Sting. Sting has such a great voice and writes great songs. This one is a bit understated yet classy. It's the 2003 Audi A4 of the musical world. Maybe the current Lizzy Caplan too. I like Lizzy Caplan.
I Don't Think - Dinosaur Jr. Great intro song of Hand It Over. Loud music for depressed autistic Gen X'rs. I'm slightly depressed Gen X'r that shows signs of Asperger's. Could be my theme song.
Use The Force - Jamiroquai. I'm not…Continue

Johnny Appleseed - Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros. Spirit lifting perfection. This is in my top five songs of all time. It just makes me feel good and wanting to be good to everyone I meet.
A Looking In View - Alice Chains. A better song on the Black Gives Way To Blue album put it just can't compete with Joe Strummer right now.
Going Nowhere - Chis Isaak. Chris says he likes this girl but insists on essentially calling her a loser. Fun, heavy…Continue

The Constant - Anthrax. Song off of the album that came out today. First time hearing it and it's exceptional. Belladonna has grown into his voice as an older fella. Gonna devour the album after the shuffle. Seriously enjoying it.
Cocaine Cowboys - WASP. I was terrified of WASP when I was a kid, legitimately thought they would make me a satanist if I listened too much. Turns out they are an accessible rock band and not scary in the least bit. Still never heard a song…Continue

Janitor - Toad The Wet Sprocket. This guys voice is killing me. TTWS and a headache don't mix,
Kingdom Of Rust - Doves. It's a chuck wagon galloping kind of song but sung by a nasally English fop. It doesn't help with the headache either.
Sylvia's Mother - Dr. Hook. Poor Dr. Hook is emotional 'cause his woman ran off. Man up Dr. Hook. I can't imagine a woman named Sylvia is all that good lookin' anyway. You can do better than…Continue

Breaking The Chains - Dokken. Getting tired of Dokken, specifically this song. Just can't see why I liked it so much in the first place. The nostalgia factor doesn't cut it when it comes to Breaking The Chains.
Shot In The Dark - Ozzy Osbourne. It's a damn shame that Jake E. Lee was replaced by that idiot Zakk. Jake is the superior Ozzy guitarist. Outside of Crazy Train, this is probably my favorite Ozzy song. The nostalgia factor is working now.

Got The Time - Anthrax. More of a punk anthem than a thrashing metal song expected from Anthrax. Seems like Green Day took more than a little inspiration from this song. Great bass line.
Devil's Island - Megadeth. Ooooh, spooky devil worshiping Megadeth. It's my favorite kind of Megadeth. Third or fourth best track on their best release.
On The Backs Of Angels - Dream Theater. Too much technicality, not enough groove. That's always been the case with…Continue

Evidence - Faith No More. The definitive FNM song. Smoothed out yet progressive and frantic in it's own way. The strings aren't cheesy and the funk isn't forced. Hell, this song is THE best R&B funky progressive jam ever written.
Hurt - Johnny Cash. The best cover song every done by anyone in the history of forever. It would be an injustice to describe the emotion here. It is all encompassing, everything a person can be or feel is in this song.…Continue

We Belong - Pat Benetar. Her masterwork. Can't say a bad word about this. Tearing up a little too. I remain a man though.
Where Are My Panties - Outkast. Not a song but it has never been skipped on a shuffle.
Home Sweet Home - Motley Crue. When I was in the 6th grade this song made all of the girls cry for some unknown reason and it turned me off to this song for a while. The solo is one of the best ever though.
Paradise City - Guns N…Continue

Dani California - Red Hot Chili Peppers. I am going to delete every damn RHCP album I own (and there's a lot of them) after hearing the stupidest lyric ever written on their new song I'm With You. There is no excuse now, nor will there ever be an excuse for "I like your cheeky, oh so Mozambique-y". I never cared for this shitty song either.
We Were Born To Be Loved - King's X. Might be my favorite King's X song. I get tired of them but this song always…Continue

Black Spartacus Heart Attack Machine - The Nightwatchman. If Bob Dylan and Tony Iommi had sex an angry communist named Tom Morello would be born from the union. This song is actually pretty fun despite the lefty leanings.
Russian Roulette - Rihanna. This chick is as close to an old school soul singer as anyone else these days. Fantastic voice. It doesnt hurt that she's easy to look at either.
Better Off - Foo Fighters. Bonus song off of the Wasting Light…Continue

Further On (Up The Road) - Bruce Springsteen. Very close to old Bruce but at the same time too much like a CCR song.
I Can't Wait - J. Mascis. One of the better tracks on J's solo album. A little better structure than some of the aimless tracks here.
Whiskey In The Jar - Metallica. This is THE best cover of WIJ. Thin Lizzy fans might argue but they're wrong. They're also annoying for having the gall to question my opinion. I want to produce my rapier…Continue

I Am I - Queensryche. Ah, Promised Land. This album tried to be grungy but kinda failed. I listened to it fairly often when it came out but it just wasn't what I want with an Queensryche album. It'll be a while before I bring this album up in a non-shuffle setting.
Be A Man - Tesla. Tesla is a producer. Can't think of a single album that I dislike. Good old fashioned rock n' roll can't be beat.
Eat Me Up Alive - Ratt. Hell of a metal song from a band…Continue

Super Bass - Nicki Minaj. There is no reason that I should be listening to this. It is, at best, okay.
A Wolf In Geek's Clothing - The Naked And Famous. Been digging female fronted rock bands lately. This song and band is fairly new to me but will definitely make more time with the album soon.
Blackbird And The Fox - The Twilight Singers. "I'll make them bleed for my baby bird" is my favorite lyric in any song ever. It's obsessive, loving, and psychotic…Continue

I Stay Away - Alice In Chains. Damn, just when I was thinking that Nutshell is their greatest accomplishment this one has to pop up. It really might be the pinnacle of AIC domination. Cinematic and more than a little spooky.
Mother - Danzig. This is the only Danzig song I own. It may be a disappointment if I dive too deeper into their catalog. Can't imagine them doing anything better than this. All around superb.
3 Libras - A Perfect Circle. Jeez, I'm…Continue

We're Not Alone - Peeping Tom. The best song on the best post Faith No More album by Mike Patton. It's aggressive and melodic and a little weird. I'm bending the shuffle rules and going to listen to it twice.
These Dreams - Jim Croce. Jim was kind of a sentimental pussy but, damn, homie could write a song.
Looking For Love - King's X. Good use of "wall of noise" on this track. King's X doesn't use it too often but always do it well. It's a nice break…Continue
