Against Me! - I Was A Teenage Anarchist


Band:  Against Me!
Song:  I Was A Teenage Anarchist
Album:  White Crosses (2011)
Genre:  Punk

I had totally forgotten that my friend Jess had told me about this band a while ago.  We were talking music and he mentioned these guys cause I guess the singer just had M2F surgery recently.  I understand in a lot of their older lyrics it was stuff he had hinted at too, so in theory if you were paying attention to what he was saying it wasn't a huge surprise.

I'm gonna try and not get into any of the politics of that and talk about the politics of the music instead.

Wait, I don't want to do that either....

Well it's a great song, one of my favorite additions to my Punk playlist, so try and dig it.

Insane Clown Posse - Miracles


Band:  Insane Clown Posse (ICP)
Song:  Miracles
Album:  Bang! Pow! Boom! (2009)
Genre:  Rap, Hip Hop
Language:  Strong

I feel like if I don't start out this post by saying Woop Woop I'm probably gonna go to juggalo jail, right?  So yeah.  Faygo, drugs, ICP, MMFCL.  It's lit fam.

But no, really, this song is what makes most people laugh at ICP.  It has the single worst line they could have possible spit out there, it's just sad.  They have another song, Ghetto Rainbows, that manages the theme a little better I think, but we're gonna talk about Miracles today.  Here's the line.

Water, fire, air and dirt
Fucking magnets, how do they work?
And I don't wanna talk to a scientist
Y'all motherfuckers lying, and getting me pissed

This is why nobody will ever take them seriously.  In a song that was about taking a step back and appreciating the little things in life they drop that line about magnets.  Now, while I don't entirely know how magnets work myself, it's also not really difficult to do a little research to know, right?  Google existed in 2009 my dudes, it's a beautiful tool.

My juggadudes though, they didn't have time for that.  They were too busy coming up with those dope lines like "Music is all magic, you can't even hold it".

Imma be honest, I do rather enjoy their music.  It's just some nice dumb fun kind of stuff I can get into when I just want to have goofy music on, ya know?  Not this one so much though.

Aaaaaa, I had already finished this post, but then I found this.

In an interview from 2010, Violent J admitted:
"I think we might have misused the word miracle. These things we mentioned in the song, they can all be explained. But what we’re doing is appreciating them."


Yeah, this is the best part.

KONGOS - Come With Me Now


Band:  KONGOS
Song:  Come With Me Now
Album:  Lunatic (2014)
Genre:  Alternative Rock

One thing I can always count of KONGOS for is a straight dope music video.

I honestly had thought that I posted this one 2 or so years ago, but as I found when I posted Take It From Me a while ago, I was mistaken.

Please enjoy this song, I think it's one that most everybody can enjoy, yeah?

Yo Gotti - Juice


Artist:  Yo Gotti
Song:  Juice
Album:  I Still Am (2017)
Genre:  Rap, Hip Hop
Language:  Strong

That fake match flame at 0:17 though, haha

First things first, most of this song's beat only hits the subs.  If you're going to actually take a listen you should make sure to do it with headphones, in a car, or just something that will actually pick up those frequencies.  The song sounds plain bad without it honestly, so be careful.

Solid song though, the whole things flows so nice man.  I just love it.  Got introduced to it by the receptionist at school, so score for totally random music input that's also really freaking bomb, right?

Haste The Day - Wake Up The Sun


Band:  Haste The Day
Song:  Wake Up The Sun
Album:  Attack Of The Wolf King (2010)
Genre:  Metalcore

I figured I kinda wanted a more high speed song.  Not that Snowblind wasn't fast, but I want something that runs fast the whole time till it just burns out, ya know?

I'm pretty happy with my pick too, it's pretty much exactly what I needed it to be.  It's not exactly a burnout song, but it's got a nice edge to it that fills my desire for that.  For now at least, I'll probably come up with a better one later this week.

HEY HEY!  ANNOUNCEMENT!

I have a Twitter account for this now.  The posts will share at the same time as G+ and Facebook, but you'll also get the added benefit of hearing my thoughts one artists here and there.  Lots of fun little things, you can find all the info you need in the area of right under the video.

Tee Grizzley - From The D To The A


Artist:  Tee Grizzley feat. Lil Yachty
Song:  From The D To The A
Album:  From The D To The A (single, 2017)
Genre:  Rap, Hip Hop
Language:  Strong

The big up and comer from 2016 and 17, Tee Grizzley is somebody I look forward to hearing from in 2018.  I can't imagine him putting out bad music in the following year honestly, both the albums he's released so far have been all in all pretty good stuff.

Anybody who can get Lil Yachty to sound this good is nice in my book too, it's almost enough to get me to check out more of Yachty's music.

Meshuggah - Monstrocity


Band: Meshuggah
Song: Monstrocity
Album: The Violent Sleep Of Reason
Genre: Progressive Metal

I'm not sure if I can be happy about how much Meshuggah has fallen into my top rotation recently.  They're really a fantastic band though, so can I be blamed?

I've been just shuffling their music recently and this was one of the songs to come up.  It's got such a wicked groove to it I just couldn't resist sharing it with y'all today.
