Anyway, the playlist today was just fantastic.
Open Letter (to a Landlord) - Living Colour
Cult of Personality - Living Colour
Innervision - System of a Down
Zero - Smashing Pumpkins
Ashes in the Fall - Rage Against the Machine
Bonzo Goes to Bitburg - Ramones
Break the Grip of Shame - Paris
Date with the Night - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Loud, crushing old-school rawk music full of roaring guitars and screaming vocals. The two exceptions were hip hop songs that both hit like a punch to the jaw. The Kanye song is the perfect right-in-your face song, one of his best. Jagged samples and a weaving, swaggering delivery by Kanye. And that Paris song is just perfection. Great flow, military-precision scratching, relentless beat. One of the greatest rap songs produced in the '80s, maybe ever.
