100 punk rock songs: 7-12
by Michele Christopher
Hey, we're getting there. 12 down, 80something to go. Don't make me do math in my head, ok?
7-9 are turtle's, 10-12 are mine.
7. Black Flag - Rats Eyes - A song that was definetly at the end of their career. Something in it. Something. I don't know what, grabbed me. It was slow and it was angry and it just sounded like we were done, but no matter what they saw and the shit you pulled they would always be there watching. Cause they stopped sleeping and they stopped caring way before you inhaled your first gasp of air. They were done before you started and now they just watched from the shadows and waited.
8. Fang - Berkeley Heathen Scum - A song I liked cause it was in a scene I was in. This was punk rock. This was being in a town where you were hated by hippy bongloads and college students at the same time. Saying to them 'hey dude, fuck you, I'm tired of your shit and you are all bothering me so go fucking away." The song rocks and the words are out of it, but I still had a good time listening to it. download
9. Angry Samoans - Lights Out - Hey dude. Theres not much to say on this song except to quote them. "We weren't the best but we rocked the hardest." Jesus, dude. What the fuck was with these guys? A band from LA in the LA scene who fucking didn't care about anything but breaking things. While others were singing about love on a couch they were singing about poking your eyes out with a fork. I'm telling you, this song rocks. *Disclaimer* This blog has no responsiblity if you poke your eyes out with a fork. download
11. Exploited - Sex and Violence
12. GBH - Knife Edge
Also, we will be doing a car tonight. Got a suggestion for one? We're listening.
