@Brandon To anyone who loves really deep, poetic, meaningful lyrics. Listener, La Dispute, Circle Takes The Square, and Have Heart have got some great tunes to make you think about the importance of life. And it will make you become a better person. Read the lyrics as you listen to the songs and it’s like an orgasm of the mind. If it’s not your aquired taste of music, at least read the lyrics to some of their songs.

Good friend of mine – B L A C K I E… All Caps, With Spaces
I’m a huge LIVE fan, here are 4 reasons why
Party Ben – Set Fire to True Faith (Adele vs. New Order)
Listened to it over 15 times this week. :-)
@TheSkaFish, Have you seen the movie “Wild Zero” staring the boys from Guitar Wolf? I have no words that could possibly describe the awesomeness that is Wild Zero. A completely insane must see movie for anyone who likes ridiculous movies staring Japanese rock bands…
Old school Less Than Jake, pickituppickituppickitup yea!!!!! Sound quality isn’t so good but they’re catchy. I feel that 3rd wave ska/ska punk is like some kind of musical fountain of youth.
@trek79, ah, you were so lucky to have been a teenager when Siamese Dream came out! My personal fave off that CD is Hummer. What’s yours?
@theskafish, Dude, Hummer is MY favourite song off Siamese Dream! It’s probably my favourite Smashing Pumpkins album…partly because my (dad’s) copy of Mellon Collie got ruined because as a little kid I used to throw it all around the place hehe
superb thread… there is so much good material here- need to find time to have a good browse .There must be scope to create a compilations playlist ? with options for Hethens to vote for the final selection of ‘ HE damn good music’ by genre?. ( I’m not offering to take this idea on.. mind) .
