Linkin Park – Living Things

“Living Things” is rather consistent with “A Thousand Suns” in general sound. The band introduced a new sound for the band that they’ve continued with the fifth studio album “Living Things.” This album is far from “Hybrid Theory” or “Meteora,” but Chester Bennington’s heavy thrashing still accompanies Mike Shinoda’s vocals. “Living Things” has more of […]

The Offspring – Days Go By

With The Offspring’s ninth (!!!) studio album “Days Go By,” the band decided to experiment with different kinds of musical styles. There’s a bit of pop (“Cruising California (Bumpin’ In My Trunk), there’s the Offspring’s classic sound in the song “Days Go By” and there’s some reggae thrown in the mix. Being able to experiment […]

SF Warped Tour

AT&T Park hosted Vans Warped Tour for a sold out San Franciscan crowd. (And I mean really sold out, as in, how in the world did they manage to fit that many people in one area?)

A Life of Hits

Billboard’s Hot 100 chart is pretty popular. I never paid much attention to it until I noticed that you can choose any given week (the options say all the way back to 1957, but it’s a lie). I thought it would be fun to see all of the hits for the week of my birthday […]

No one was angrier when the hiatus was forced upon our ears. I was bitterly fond of Brandon Flowers’ solo work, which eventually evolved into […]

Motion City Soundtrack – Go

Motion City Soundtrack is one of those bands that I love to hear. The only problem is that I  never remember to play them.  I do the same thing with Weezer so stop throwing rotten tomatoes at your screen. Thanks. As I started playing MCS’ “Go,” it really reminded me of Mae – which actually makes sense. They […]

Vans Warped Tour

It’s that time of year again. In just one week, Vans Warped Tour will kick off in Salt Lake City, Utah. The last time I went was four years ago in Atlanta, Ga. Now, I’m on the other coast and will be enjoying the San Francisco, Cali. date that is sure to have much cooler […]

Always on Repeat

In my last post, I mentioned my uncanny ability to wear out songs for everyone around me. Unfortunately for anyone who has ever lived with me, I have this playlist of songs of which I will never tire.
