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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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!

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 […]

Frank Zappa: Sheik Yerbouti (1979)

By |January 26th, 2014|1979, All, Alternative, Rock, The 70s, You had to have been there|0 Comments|

The 70’s went out with a bang in the form of the incredible Frank Zappa’s slam on the Disco music. Mr. Zappa and his crew made the music they wanted to, and could care less if they made the charts or not. Radical social commentary that pulled no punches!! Definitely not for the meek […]

Modest Mouse – Early Cassette Recordings Tube-Fruit, All Smiles and Chocolate (1993)

By |December 6th, 2013|1993, All, Alternative, Rock, The 90s|0 Comments|

Modest Mouse is one of those indie bands that went from literally nothing to extreme fame and worth through the classic method: getting better and sticking with it. While albums like Good News for People Who Love Bad News is known even by those who aren’t avid Modest Mouse fans, there are many early […]
