President’s Day Mix (A Song for Each President) Pt I.

Hopefully you kids are a lot luckier than me and are off work and/or school and are celebrating President’s Day to the fullest. Of course, since there isn’t really many President’s day parties going down, why don’t you party with the housewives as we crank out a president’s day mix, giving a (somewhat relevant) song to each president in the history of the United States of America. Oh, and of course, if you want a REAL history lesson, you ought to check out this book. […]

Teenage Bottlerocket – Another Way (For fans of The Ramones, The Copyrights, The Groovie Ghoulies)

Nobody plays 3 chord punk rock like Teenage Bottlerocket… NOBODY! While these Wyoming punk rockers exploded in the punk community with their manna-esque “Total”, they actually have a full length before “Total” that is damn solid. “Another Way” features the pop-punk sound we’ve come to love from Teenage Bottlerocket, but is much more raw in it’s delivery. Songs such as “Be Stag” and “Patrick” are top notch Teenage Bottlerocket, but I don’t find most of the songs as memorable as anything on “Total” or even […]

Happy 200th Birthday Darwin! (A Mix!)

Today is Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday, and I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge nerd when it comes to evolutionary biology (seriously). It’s amazing how one man completely changed the way the world thinks in terms of science and our origins, and how some people still refuse to believe evolution happened. A few months ago, the Church of England apologize to Charles Darwin (126 years after the fact) for calling him a heretic and denying evolution. Hey it’s a start, maybe in the […]

Propagandhi Releases Two More Songs (With Strings Attached)

Propagandhi released the following statement: “OK wieners, we’ve decided to try something different this time around. Before some dumb-ass dickweed leaks our new album all over the ‘net at some obscenely-low bitrate with the song titles mixed up and our band name spelled wrong, we’re gonna throw you a sweet, sweet (human) bone in the form of two wicked new songs (Supporting Caste and Human(e) Meat) from our rad new record while simultaneously trying to scrounge some spare change for a handful of organizations whose […]

Alestorm – Captain Morgan’s Revenge (For fans of Dragonforce, Flogging Molly, Horse the Band)

In a sea filled with half assed love songs and crappy indie remixes, what the hell is a pirate brotha supposed to do these days? Let Alestorm guide you and your crew through these treacherous musical waters… Ok, all terrible metaphors aside, Alestorm is a self proclaimed pirate metal band hailing from Scotland. Mixing the synth breakdowns of power metal, the sing-alongs of folk, and the speed of thrash, these Scots sort of sounds like a mix between Dragon Force, Flogging Molly, and Horse the […]

Dumbass Yuppies Thinking I’m Trying To Break Into Their Car (A Mix!)

These are worth a dollar or two. I swear, get a little alcohol in some clubbing “I seem to be experiencing a mid-life crisis” yuppie with some pre-mature male pattern baldness, and they think they run the whole god damn city. The other night, I was out skating, when a car pulls up, and this drunk dude stumbles out towards me. “YO!!! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?” “Skating… You got a problem?” “… never mind.” Ok, that should have been the end of it. […]

SNFU – In The Meantime and In Between Time (For fans of NOFX, Satanic Surfers, The Deviates)

SNFU has been around forever, and probably before a majority of the readers of this blog (including myself). When it came time to roll around their 10th full length “In The Meantime and In Between Time” back in ’04, SNFU perfected that skate punk sound. SNFU has made a name for themselves over the years, with Ken Chinn having an extremely distinct sing/talk vocal delivery, and complimenting guitar work that uses punk riffs, but often dips into metal and hard rock. The album itself features […]

Municipal Waste – Tango and Thrash EP (A Tribute To Kurt Russell)

Lately, Municipal Waste has become one of my favorite bands. I simply cannot get enough of their high energy crossover-thrash-face-explosion-party-on-your-face music. I thought I had all of their material, but then I heard of the Tango and Thrash EP… which is a tribute to Kurt Russell. ….Hell Yes! Admittedly, I used to often get Russell Crowe and Kurt Russell mixed up, but this was before I saw “Escape From L.A” 2 weekends ago. (“Duuuude. You’ve seen Escape From L.A and never saw Escape From N.Y? […]

Have Nots – Serf City USA (for fans of Operation Ivy, Rancid, Suicide Machines)

The Have Nots are one of the best bands that you may have never heard of if you don’t live on the east coast… hopefully their newest independently released “Serf City USA” will change that. Sounding something like the illegitimate bastard child of Operation Ivy and The God Awfuls, Boston’s Have Nots found the perfect blend of punk and ska riffs. Don’t let the ska influences fool you however… I highly doubt you’ll find a bunch of 12 year olds in pork pie hats and […]

New Propagandhi Song! (Dear Coaches Corner)

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNwDmqoXrXw] As most of you know, Propagandhi is coming out with a new album “Supporting Caste” in March, and finally, someone posted the first track to a homemade video on youtube. All I have to say about the song is: holy shit. (Oh and for those who are curious, the main picture is from a book called “Codex Seraphinianus“, which is pretty much an encyclopedia about an imaginary world.
