David Castillo’s Cassette Tape Artistry

By |April 25th, 2016|Alternative, Cassette-worthy bands of today, Uncategorized|0 Comments|

David Castillo knows a thing or two about cassette tapes. That’s why he’s embraced the tape as a musician – nothing is quite as easy or cool as slinging cassettes. He’s been through two monikers and a few hometowns, started his own label (which puts out tapes), and just about lives on the road. […]

Motörhead’s Legacy

By |March 25th, 2015|All, Best Ever, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Punk, Rock, The 70s, The 80s, The 90s|0 Comments|

Not every band can claim they’ve left a vast legacy that spans genres and decades. And not every band can make that claim while still being very much alive and kicking. Motörhead, however, can make this claim. Motörhead will tell you themselves that they are a mere rock and roll band. But everyone else […]

Rob Zombie: A Retrospective

By |March 23rd, 2015|All, Best Ever, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Rock, The 90s|0 Comments|

You might be prone to overlooking Rob Zombie if you were to compile a list of today’s top shock alternative rockers. Manson, who just released a tape, would probably come to mind first. But to skip over one of the 90s hardest rocking musicians would be a dire oversight. He’s not a has-been by […]

Leppard Mania

By |March 22nd, 2015|1983, Best Ever, Hard Rock, Pop, Rock, The 80s|0 Comments|

The British music invasion was a huge phenomenon of the 1960’s and 70’s. It all started with the Beatles, but they were quickly followed by acts like the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. It seemed like every day there was a new mega rock band coming out of Britain. This didn’t stop in the […]

Echo & the Bunnymen from Crocodiles to Reverberation

By |February 5th, 2015|Alternative, guilty pleasures, Soundtracks, The 80s|0 Comments|

Like most younger Americans, I had heard “The Killing Moon” by Echo & the Bunnymen a time or two, but it wasn’t until I saw Donnie Darko for the first time that I really fell in love with them. Most people my age will only refer to them as “that band in the one […]

Summer of Ozzy

By |January 31st, 2015|1983, All, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Rock|0 Comments|

When you’re a kid you look forward to summer with a sense of excitement. The summer of 1983 was one I looked forward to with even more excitement than usual. I was eleven years old and I was starting to make that transition to my teenage years. You know the period when you start […]

Top 10 Alternative Songs of the 1990s (multi-genre)

By |January 26th, 2015|Alternative, Gothic, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Pop, Punk, Rock, The 90s|1 Comment|

The 1990s were an interesting time, filled with the arrival of many types of music and a unique expression of individuality. When talking about some of the best songs of the time, well frankly it’s not that simple to narrow down to one comprehensive list. There are so many factors that go into such […]

Appetite for Guns

By |January 25th, 2015|1987, All, Best Ever, Hard Rock, Rock|0 Comments|

I recall the first time I heard Guns N’ Roses ground breaking album Appetite for Destruction as if it was yesterday. I was sitting at the dining room table of my friend’s house and he brought out this cassette that he said I just had to hear. We were both 15 years old so […]

The Ultimate Black Flag from ’81 to ’85

By |January 25th, 2015|Hard Rock, Punk, The 80s|0 Comments|

While people like AC/DC, Madonna and Michael Jackson were the headliners of the 1980’s, there was a growing subculture right under everyone’s noses that was just barely reaching from the East to West Coast. Unless you were part of the scene, chances are most people growing up in the 80’s never even heard of […]

Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung”

By |January 16th, 2015|All, Hard Rock, Pop, Rock|0 Comments|

A cassette which originally only spawned the single, “Hymn 49,” Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung” has since arguably become their best known work, making them fixtures of radio with the two most recognizable songs, “Aqualung” and “Locomotive Breath,” to this day being played on every classic rock radio station in the nation. I have listened to […]

We usually don’t do posts for 1 song from a cassette, but we were just listening to this one and … IT ROCKS!
