Why I love.. Queens of The Stone Age

November 28, 2013

Fuzzed out stoner rock with a retro feel that exemplifies everything from early psychedelia, to blues, to metal, to soaring pop hooks.  Josh Homme and co. have such a tight sound too. All in all a very peculiar and amazing band. Not all of the albums feel that solid to me, but they have so many good songs.  And the albums that hold up well on the whole are some of the best albums i have ever had the pleasure of listening to.

11 Songs To Play LOUDLY!!!!!

January 31, 2011

1.Helter Skelter- The Beatles:Without question, a song to play loudly.  If you play it quietly, what use is Paul’s screaming to any listeners?

2.Comfort Eagle-Cake: A song that seems loud on any volume, if that makes any sense.  Especially good for blasting in a car.

3.One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces- Ben Folds Five:  It’s for blasting on one of those days when you just dont wanna have anything to do with other people’s shit.

4.Shout-Tears For Fears: I know you’ve heard enough about this song from me!

5.Drumming Song-Florence & The Machine: The passion, and the energy, and the head-filling,explosions of sound, “the drumming noise inside my head,” make this worthy of very very loud play!

6.Metric-Sick Muse: “Everybody, everybody just wanna fall in love, everybody everybody just want to play the lead.”

7.Stockholm Synrdome-Muse:  This song brings the metal withotu  sacrificing the beauteous soaring vocals and lovely musical arrangements Matt Bellamy and crew are known for.

9.20th century boy- T REX: It’s pretty straightforward, and rock through and through, so always grounds for loud playing!

10.Come Down- the Pillows:  This song is enough proof to explain why they are one of my favorite Japanese bands, but don’t believe watch yourself some Fooly Cooly or listen to more of their music, also featured in the anime Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad.

11.Everlong-Foo Fighters: Let’s just hope the new album, coming out later this year, is a return to form as Dave has promised us.  It should be even better than the classic album this song is off of, for it features Dave’s first time playing with Krist Novoselic since Nirvana’s end, not to mention a reunion with the producer of Nevermind.

Now dear readers, I propose a challenge to anyone willing to participate:  Sound off on my theme, are these songs worthy to be played louder than loud?  If not, or even if so, give me some of your picks for songs that necessitate being played at ungodly volumes.

Peace.
