Don't Care - King's X. Recently picked up Dog Man on Amazon, had it on tape when it came out. Damn, this is their opus. Really dig this song, the guitar is spot on.
Twilight of the Gods - Helloween. Criminally overlooked 80's metal band. Think of a cross between Queensryche and Megadeth. It works. I think they still produce new music, I may have to make a purchase this weekend.
The Gentle Art of Making - Enemies. "Happy Birthday, fucker" is one of my…Continue

Brothers In Arms - Dire Straights. Bluesy guitar and synth dont go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Meh.
Not Tomorrow - Living Colour. LC exploring blues and progressive beat structure. I could have used more zazz though.
Bummed Out City - Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros. I love Joe Strummer and hate that I didn't pay attention to his work outside of the Clash until years after his death. The guy was a craftsman.
The Beast -…Continue

Tonight, Tonight - Smashing Pumpkins. Love me an epic song. This one is done well too. The positivity is nice. Awww.
Of The Girl - Pearl Jam. Not enough going on here to make me pay attention. Binaural was kind of a clunker for me.
Plans - Dinosaur Jr. Well shit, I just got out of the gym and I'm not liking this down tempo stuff. I will be seeing DJ in a couple of weeks though! If they stay away from the ballads it will be the…Continue

The Talisman - Iron Maiden. Plenty of gallopy goodness for the average Maiden fan. Anyone else would hate it. I dig it plenty.
Dynamite Steps - The Twilight Singers. Could'a been on Blackberry Belle, almost out of place on the album of the same name. It's also simple song filled with complex tones, lots of layers. I've heard this song several times but this is the first time I've really listened to it. Damn, I should have payed attention earlier.

Cropduster - Pearl Jam. An afterthought song. Doesn't seem like they put a whole lot of effort into it. Too much Phish style jamming.
Ashes and Ghosts - The Cult. Beyond Good and Evil is The Cult's best album. This song is pure rock. Aggression, melody, spooky, epic.
Mayday - Tomahawk. Damn, two of my favorite 00's songs in a row. It's weird but accessible. If I had a regular job I'd turn in my notice, AS OF TWO FUCKING WEEKS AGO!

Price I Pay - Jane's Addiction. huh? Too short, must be a lead in to another song. The downside of the shuffle I guess.
Universal You - The Cult. You can't go wrong with a song that has "swagger" in the lyrics. Like the bass out front. Rare for a Cult jam.
Around the World - Red Hot Chili Peppers. The rappy RHCP was kinda played out when this song came out. Never got in to it all that much.
Take Me With U - Sharon Jones and the Dap…Continue

Centuries of Sin - Probot. Grohl does metal just as well as he does rock. This shit is the domination.
Seek and Destroy - Metallica. Some live version I snagged from their website. Live music never translates well.
40 - U2. Havent heard this song in at least 20 years. Bono wants me to sing for Jesus or something. Meh.
Death of Me - Red. I almost like this song. The 00's brand of rock singer just grates on me though. It's like they…Continue

Gonna See My Friend - Pearl Jam. I really like the production on this song. Crisp. Otherwise, it's obnoxiously silly. My 9 year old nephew says similar things.
Dissident - Pearl Jam. I was in college when this came out. My grunginess cannot be questioned because of it.
Bad Company - Five Finger Death Punch. These guys want to be Metallica so bad that it's an embarrassment. There are much better 70's songs to cover, songs that dont sound exactly like…Continue

Guerrilla Monsoon Rap - Talib Kweli. Love it when rappers name check wrestlers. We're not so different, me and Talib.
The Ballad of Johnny Butts - Sublime. Catchy goodness. I think the college kids still listen to Sublime.
Crazy - WASP. One of the newest WASP songs that has turned into one of my FAVORITE all time WASP songs. It's great when the elderly rockers with pendulous man tits break out something more than worth while. Big ups to Blackie and his…Continue

Wild Hearted Son - The Cult. The Cult at it's finest. One of my favorite tracks.
Casting Shade - Shadows Fall. Another Shadows Fall song I'm not familiar with. So far sounds very Metallica-esque. Sanitarium style. Not bad.
Symphony No. 3 in E Flat Major, Op 55 - Beethoven. Beethoven always brings the goodies.
Sooner or Later - King's X. It has what I like about King's X but for some reason I don't get it. On the upside, Dogman will be…Continue

Surfing With The Alien - Joe Satriani. My official soundtrack to Super Mario Bros. 2. Fantastic album, fantastic song.
Photographs and Memories - Jim Croce. Sappy at it's best. Jim Croce always gets me right in the gut.
War Pigs - Faith No More. It's probably blasphemy but I prefer this version over the original.
Sublime - The Twilight Singers. I dont care for Joseph Arthur's falsetto. He ruined their first appearance on Jimmy Kimmel…Continue

True Love Way - Kings Of Leon. Nice way to start a shuffle! Nothing but praise.
Falling Down - Queensryche. Kinda scattered but still one of their better post Empire efforts.
Breakout - Foo Fighters. A bit too poppy for me but still good.
Dialectic Chaos - Megadeth. Probably the best song on End Game. Great riff.
Smoke - Ben Folds Five. Emo. Not feeling particularly Emo today but the song is solid.

Suicide Solution - Ozzy Osbourne. This song has never made me want to kill myself or drink to excess. I have gotten a boner listening to it though.
Where Are You - J Mascis. One of the better tracks on his solo album. Not as "jammy" as some of the other songs. Pretty good harmonizing on this one and an electric solo.
Underwater Love - Faith No More. Hinting at what's to come with Angel Dust. VERY good song!
The Chair - Living Colour. LC…Continue

Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses. People say they get tired of this song. People are liars. Favorite bass line ever.
Oh My God - Sixx A.M. It's growing on me. I dig it.
Freewill - Rush. I was just thinking of my ultimate prog playlist and this song was on it. Geddy can rock it.
You My Flower - Forcefield On. A cover of a decent Afghan Whigs song done not so decently. The hipster vocals kinda piss me off.…Continue

There's Been An Accident - Twilight Singers. One of the few inorganic, forced Twilight songs. It's good enough, just a bit plastic.
Sometimes - Pearl Jam. No Code gets a bad rap. It's a great album and this song is great itself.
Pirate By Thirty - Ice Palace. Hipster douchebaggery that's not always my cup of tea but this song is tolerable.
Tell Her About It - Billy Joel. Nice surprise! This is a toe tapper AND a finger…Continue

Forever - Skid Row. I have never heard this song until this very moment. Picked up a Skid Row "best of" a couple of weeks back and this was on it. Two shades above good with shades of excellent.
Walking On Sunshine - Katrina and the Waves. I'm dancing! I dance just like The Jerk. Glad I'm alone.
Die Walkure - Wagner. Hitler and I have Wagner boners in common. That's it though. I swear!
House of Pain - Van Halen. No complaints when DLR…Continue

Closer - Kings of Leon. This spooky tone pretty cool and works.
Pick Me Up - Dinosaur Jr. Dinosaur Jr has been coming up with a decent frequency lately. It makes me happy.
Don't Let Me Down - Twisted Sister. Too demo-y sounding. An outside producer should have punched it up.
Caught Up In A Dream - Tesla. No complaints. It's Tesla!
Apollo I, The Writing Writer -Coheed & Cambria. The names of C&C songs always…Continue

Riding On The Wind - Judas Priest. Amateurish. Always thought JP sounded like a bar band.
Me, Myself and I - De La Soul. Love it. One of the best rap songs ever.
All Those Yesterdays - Pearl Jam. There is nary a better band but I'm just not feeling this song right now.
Unchained - Johnny Cash. Not to be an ass, but I was hoping for some harder edged rock today. Any other time I'd be singing the praises of…Continue

You Lookin' At Me Lookin' At You - Ozzy Osbourne. Slow and not that great. The solo is okay.
Peace On Earth - U2. I dont think this has ever come up on a shuffle and I know that I've never intentionally played it. U2 is definitely a once in a while proposition.
Jizzlobber - Faith No More. Great song with a funny name.
Carve Away The Stone - Rush. Rush is definitely a daily proposition. Nothing fantastic here but still enjoyable to any…Continue

Fill Her Up - Sting. A really good country song from an English dude. Who would have thought?
Bodies - Smashing Pumpkins. Probably the hardest rocking song on Mellon Collie. Glad to hear it in fact.
Help Is On The Way - Sixx A.M. I've only been through the CD once and wasn't fully impressed but I'm liking this song quite a bit. Nice and varied instrumentation. Poppy chorus.
The Idiot Box - Shadows Fall. Great Metallica influenced jam.…Continue
