This song takes me right back to high school. Mike Patton is up there on the musical talent scale with Danny Elfman.
Another of my favs from the early 90s. I listened to this song (on the Mortal Kombat Soundtrack) over and over again because of the technological advancements of the video game Hexen: Beyond Heritic. The game (a fantasy-based step-brother to the more popular Doom series) allowed players to take out the game CD after loading up and insert your own music cd that would play in the background! Good times.
Gravity Kills is an American industrial rock band from St. Louis, Missouri. Their music was described by one critic as “a blending of eerie industrial rock with a pop-infused melodic chorus and a bit of hard-core head banging.”
The band was formed in 1994. They had their first hit single with “Guilty“, a track later released on their self-titled album Gravity Kills. Gravity Kills’ songs were featured on the soundtracks for Mortal Kombat, Seven, Escape from L.A., and Kissing a Fool, as well as video games like Test Drive Off-Road.
Northern Ireland alt-rock/punk/pop band Therapy? rose to prominence in the 90s and then fell off the map. Their album Troublegum is still one of the few albums I can listen to from start to finish.
Nephew is a Danish rock band, formed in 1996, in Århus. They had their breakthrough in 2004 with the release of their second album USADSB. The release coincided with lead singer Simon Kvamm‘s highly successful appearances on Danish television in the cult comedy show Drengene fra Angora, which helped boost the band’s popularity. USADSB went double platinum in Denmark and spawned six hit singles.
The band uses an unusual mixture of Danish and English in their lyrics; they started singing mostly in English with just a few Danish lyrics, but gradually, they have been using Danish more frequently in their songs.
I found this video after seeing a post on a message board about “the weirdest video you’ll see today.” It certainly was. Of course the internet to a liking as soon as “Cancer Jesus” (as they call him) starts attacking the stand-in boy band by I’MA FIRIN’ MAH LAZAH from his mouth.
Bonus – Hot Chip – Ready for the Floor
My niece told me about these guys. I like ’em a lot. I like that rock is getting back to face-paint, leather and screamy fast guitars! It even sounds like Shout at the Devil at the beginning.
Thumbs up from these guys:
I love the techno cowboy vibe of this song.
Honky, real rock n rollers!
Just got my iPad today and thought I’d do the obligatory post from it. Posting from the iPad is really easy and makes me feel like I’m in a super-futuristic movie. In five years I’ll be saying ” I can’t believe I was posting on that OLD iPad!”
So far my favorite apps are Kindle, Marvel Comics, and Netflix.
