A “Black Friday” Mix

(True American. The rest of you are socialist bastards.) What the hell are you doing reading this?! Americans, you should be out there doing your part and BUYING BUYING BUYING to put those poor, poor corporations back into the black so they could make some money. Non-Americans, you should be buying American products! Do your part and be a good little consumer whore! MP3:Atom and His Package – Shopping SpreeNOFX – Freedom Like A Shopping CartPropagandhi – Rock for Sustainable CapitalismAgainst All Authority – Corporate […]

The Bronx – The Bronx III (For fans of The Humpers, The White Stripes, Teenage Harlets)

Take The White Stripes, teach them to play punk rock and teach the lead singer to scream, and you’ve got The Bronx. Now, personally, I despise The White Stripes (and most garage rock for that matter), but then again, they aren’t playing heavy as shit punk rock. The Bronx’s latest (the slightly pretentious third self titled album) pulls heavy influences from garage rock and mixes it with their own blend of punk rock, creating a sound that fans of The Explosion will eat up. The […]

Jup (Local New Jersey Pop Punk for fans of Saves the Day)

So, this post is a bit random, but a while back I made a post: “5 Greatest punk songs from bands you’ve never heard of” and posted a song by Jup. A reader in the comment section claimed to go to high school with this local NJ band (that has long since broken up), and asked if I could upload their demo. While I only am a fan of “Queen of Hearts”, that song alone made me happy enough to have this demo (got it […]

Drunken Yuppies Breaking Into My House (A Mix!!!)

(Now I’m not a doctor, but if you can’t remember where you live… you might want to lay off a bit) So, the other night I went to go lay down around 2:30 am without the intentions of actually going to sleep. Oops. Waking up at 5 am, slightly irked that I passed out, I realized that I didn’t shut off any of the lights. In a half asleep daze, I stumbled across my bedroom into the living room, and noticed that I didn’t lock […]

MC Chris with Totally Michael live in Philly!

OK, I’ve been an MC Chris fan for a number of years (well, 5 to be exact), but somehow, I was never able to catch him live. I was pretty stoked to finally get to see MC Chris, and Totally Michael was a complete added bonus. Jesse DangerouslyOK, nobody knew this guy was even playing because he was not on the bill, but that didn’t stop this unassuming Nova Scotian rapper from charming the crowd with his humor, blazing fast raps, and all around friendliness.

Millions of Dead Cops – More Dead Cops (For fans of Dead Kennedys, Reagan Youth, JFA)

Millions of Dead Cops have been known by millions of freaking names: Millions of Damn Christians, Multi Death Corporation, etc. But what’s in a name? That which we call a rose… By any other name would smell as sweet. MDC started in Austin Texas, 1979, and plays 80s political hardcore punk rock in the veins of Reagan Youth and Dead Kennedys. The lyrics were sarcastic and harsh yet intelligent. The sparked some controversy with their song “Pay To Come Along”, which blasted Bad Brains for […]

Smoke or Fire – This Sinking Ship (for fans of Grey Area, Strike Anywhere, Hot Water Music)

I’ve read plenty of reviews online that say Smoke or Fire’s “This Sinking Ship” isn’t as good as “Above The City”, and isn’t really anything to get excited about. I say: Fuck that. If I became completely obsessed when This Sinking Ship came out back in 2007, it would have made my number one album of the year. Maybe I’m missing something, or more accurate seeing something that other reviewers don’t see, but I think Smoke or Fire’s latest is a masterpiece. Melodic punk rock […]

(Seriously winter… I don’t care how pretty you make for photography, I hope you die.) Wow, I really hate winter… like… REALLY hate. I’m talking about finding that no good vermin named winter, and stabbing that mofo right in the throat. So let’s all boycott winter, and listen to some summer music! What’s your ultimate summer mix? Lets hear it people! MP3:Mustard Plug – SummertimeRise Against – Remains of Summer MemoriesLess Than Jake – My Own FlagMelt Banana – I Hate It! (Winter that is)Bouncing […]

Skanksgiving Review! (Big D and the Kids Table, Toasters, Pietasters, Mustard Plug, many more)

Freaking stoked out of my mind could not even begin to describe how hyped I was to catch the biggest ska fest on this side of the hood. Yesterday I trekked the two hour drive out to the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey. After getting horribly lost (god I hate google maps sometimes), I finally arrived a tad late missing most of the local bands. Hub City Stompers:When I first heard of the show, I was a bit shocked to learn that Hub City Stompers […]

Sublime Re-Uniting with New Singer?

Apparently there are rumors flying around stating that Sublime will be re-uniting with a new singer to play Bamboozle 09. On the Bamboozle site, they have a decoding game to hint at the bands: some decoded are Gorilla Biscuits, NOFX, Britney Spears, and Sublime. Everyone thought Sublime was a joke like Britney Spears, but according to various sources, it may actually be true. Of course, here at the housewives, we think this happened a long time ago, with a little band called “Long Beach Dub […]
