Turned to 80s punk rock for comfort this morning. It’s funny I forgot how much I liked The Crucifucks. Not worrying about getting this perfect and it degenerates after the first half.
What I like, at least in this mood, is a fast pace, crisp bass, some rhythmic change or chaos, fuzzy noises, screaming obnoxiousness, either a quick sharp opening or a buildup that is worth it, and for a song to be under 2 minutes since I have a short attention span. Feeling grateful and happy this morning for punk’s existence and the great shows I used to go to in Texas. Enjoy!
The playlist so far:
No Class - Reagan Youth Earth By Invitation Only - The Crucifucks Hate - Red Aunts Bourgeois Fascist Pig - Dicks You're a Jerk - Wasted Youth No Fucking War - 7 Year Bitch Authority - Big Boys Fuck Authority - Wasted Youth We Rule and You Don't - Adolescents We Know You Suck - JFA World War III - T.S.O.L. The Ugly American - Big Black Parade of the Horribles - Circle Jerks Patriot Asshole - MDC Nervous Breakdown - Black Flag World Up My Ass - Circle Jerks I Can't Believe - Big Black People Hate Me - Tribe 8 Anti-Klan - Dicks Washington - The Crucifucks Right Wing/ White Ring - Dicks Eve of Destruction - The Dickies The Leader Is Burning - Pocket FishRmen John Wayne Was a Nazi - MDC California Uber Alles - Dead Kennedys (the classics) Democracy - Adolescents Another Shot of Whiskey - The Gits
The list goes on from there, but in a disorganized way (the leftovers from constructing the first half).
I really love music and carefully cultivate playlists for various moods and genres. Maybe I’ll write about it more, and that way people will give me fabulous recommendations for more music that I’d like.
