20 Years Ago…Pretty Hate Machine

Filed under Music

I failed to play nothing but Nine Inch Nails’ Pretty Hate Machine today. Why? Because twenty years ago Trent Reznor dropped this on the music world.
PHM wasn’t the beginning of industrial music, but it was the genre’s most important album. Reznor combined metal, electronic music, and goth with pop hooks that instantly made him [...]

In My Time of Dyin’

Filed under Music

Three sisters pull off a folk cover of Led Zeppelin’s “In My Time of Dyin’.” I could like this. Plus, it’s a free download from Amazon.com so it’s no risk.

2112 for Real?

Filed under Music

I won’t get into any claims about the federal government taking over the internet. The thing was designed to withstand a nuclear attack; I think it could survive the Commerce Department. I am mentioning this topic simply because Smitty at Robert Stacey McCain’s weblog tied Rush, the Canadian power trio that deserves to be in [...]

Fairtilizer Minimix

Because I’m not finding the energy, punch, and hooks I require in current rock music I’ve jumped back into electronic music in a serious way. I’m hunting for new podcasts and listening to plenty of DJ mixes to and from the office. I stumbled upon Remix Artists Collective Minimix 3 on Fairtilizer. There’s plenty of [...]

Commander Robert Plant

Filed under Music

Queen Elizabeth II named Robert Plant Commander of the Order of the British Empire. He’s one step away from becoming a knight.
And he’s still not on board for a Led Zeppelin reunion.
“Queen Gets the Led Out, Honors Robert Plant”

Coldplay Versus Satriani

Filed under Music

Joe Satriani sues Coldplay and stumbles upon a killer mashup. I don’t care much about the lawsuit. But I would disagree with Allahpundit who asks, “Besides, do Coldplay look like they listen to Joe Satriani?” Just because Coldplay doesn’t rock out doesn’t mean they don’t listen to one of the best guitarists in rock history.
Here’s [...]

Does that mean we never have to endure rick rolling again? Please make it be so. That would be something I really, really would be thankful for.
