  1. Pain Killer Iceage Umm....definitely didn't expect this track to sound the way it does. It's a fun song though.
  2. I can't believe I didn't know about this sooner, but Norm Rogers, one of the greatest punk drummers ever, passed away from cancer last week. He played for Cows, one of my favorite bands of all time. He played on many of their best albums, including Cunning Stunts, which is in my opinion one of the greatest albums in rock history. It was a huge inspiration to me when I started playing drums, since the drumming on that album is absolutely perfect. I know a lot of you haven't heard of Cows, but they were an awesome and influential punk/noise rock band that never got the credit they deserved (which is why news of Norm's death never really spread). So I'd highly recommend at least listening to to hear this legend at his best. He will be missed.
  3. The new Turnstile is so legit! I've been listening to it constantly this week. It's like a combination of Bad Brains, Gorilla Biscuits, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, and Post Malone with a hint of Melvins.
  4. I forgot to post about how I saw Municipal Waste, Nails and Macabre a few months ago at the Trocadero. They were all awesome. I just saw American Nightmare, Pissed Jeans, Protester, and Spiritual Cramp. These four bands pretty much represent every part of the punk spectrum. Spiritual Cramp is a pretty unknown band but I love their stuff. It's kinda garage rock and kinda post-punk. The reason why they were so great is because they're a punk band with a motherfucking TAMBOURINE PLAYER! This guy with sunglasses literally just jumps around and plays a tambourine. He was really getting into it during the song "Wrecking Machine" and his first tambourine shattered, but luckily he had three. The next band was Protester, and they're a thrashy straight-edge hardcore band. Very raw and intense. Their front man is great. I heard some of their albums but I'm not extremely familiar with them. The albums don't really compare to how good they are live. Pissed Jeans were the main reason I went to the show. They're a noise rock/hardcore/"grunge" type band, although lately they've bordered on sludge metal. They were fantastic when I saw them last year and they're still playing a lot of songs from their new album Why Love Now, which is their best album by far. Their sound was thicc and sludgy as always and it was absolutely euphoric. I personally think it was the best show of the night. They played some of their older songs later in the set and that really made the crowd go crazy. American Nightmare was really great. They're a melodic hardcore punk band. They released their new album today and about half of their set was new tracks. I don't know, I personally loved the new songs but the crowd didn't seem to really be vibing with it. They played all their classics though, and those are songs that were pretty much designed to be played live. My voice is completely shot from singing the lyrics. Wesley's stage presence was top notch and it was a memorable show. It's great seeing an older band still kick ass. Shout out to Joe Hardcore. The next show I'm seeing is IDLES!

  7. DarKastle wasn't quite my thing (I don't care for screen rides that much), but I still enjoyed it quite a bit. I see why many people (including everyone in my family) absolutely loved it. RIP.
  8. Here's the next one: -This operating coaster shares a name with a well-known standing-but-not-operating coaster -It's the only coaster in its country -It has been relocated 3 times
  9. I've been almost exclusively listening to some of my favorite experimental punk (I guess that's the best way to describe it) albums the past few days, especially Flipper and Death Grips ("The Money Store" followed by "Album: Generic Flipper" surprisingly go perfectly together back to back on repeat). Some other bands I've been addicted to lately: Big Black Cows The Dicks Crucifuccs Naked Raygun Some new (new to me at least) bands I found that I'd recommend are Drug Church, Buzzoven, and Candiria. I should probably share bands I discover here more often.
