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 […]

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 […]

Van Halen: Atomic Punk

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

Best Band of the 70s?

By |March 22nd, 2014|All, Best Ever, Pop, The 70s|1 Comment|

The decade, 1970 – 1979, was a time of musical maturity. The newborn of the 60’s came into their own! Super-Stars appeared. But what band or vocalist or genre was considered the best of this decade? And how does one go about determining who the ‘best’ is?? Cassette sales? ABSOLUTELY! A tape that goes […]

Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon

By |March 6th, 2014|1973, All, Best Ever, Pop, Rock, The 70s|1 Comment|

This cassette, which if you haven’t heard it, you must not like music from the 1970’s, spent 741 weeks on Billboard’s charts from 1973 to 1988. If you have listened, but the cassette means nothing to you, then Pink Floyd (or maybe all of progressive rock) is not for you.

If, like me, you find […]

No one can argue about the versatility and evolution of hip hop music.  It does not matter if you are an avid fan, occasional listener or even a hater of it.  The sound and the faces of the genre are constantly changing.  Hip hop has seen its humble beginnings expand well beyond its confining […]

Say Anything (1989)

THIS IS IT.  The Cassette Movie.

There is no movie more cassettier.  Are cassettier, cassette, cassettosity words?  Well if you’re reading them on cassette them damn well are.

Ok.  Few notes here.  First – SPOILER ALERT – DO NOT READ FURTHER unless you’ve already seen the movie.  We are going to assume you have.  Face […]

The Smiths: Mathematically Rating Their Cassettes

By |February 24th, 2014|1986, All, Alternative, Best Ever, Pop, The 80s|1 Comment|

So far we reviewed and ranked 64 of the Smith’s songs.  Now we use that information to assess their cassettes. So, what did the math tell us?

Not surprisingly, “Strangeways, here we come” is their worst offering.  It has the lowest average at 6.6 but perhaps even more telling, only 20% of its songs […]

David Bowie: The Rise And Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972)

By |February 8th, 2014|1972, All, Best Ever, Pop, The 70s|0 Comments|

Now this is one of those albums you can never get enough of. It is one of those cassettes you find among your old man’s music, and steal it immediately, and hide it so that no one can take it away from you. It is excellent, conceptual and one of Bowie’s best works. It […]
