I'll get the ball rolling...
Top two for me would be Monster Magnet's Spine of God and Jimi Hendrix's Radio One. Either album played from track one is a gauranteed fire up. YEEAAARH!!! :D
I gave The Bronx's first album a good thrashing in the car on the way down to Bells this year. But I don't think the other Swellnet guys liked it quite as much as I do. Great pre-surf music though!
any Slayer song
The Bronx? Meh...
Mine are singles and not albums - I wanna be amped and out the door in two minutes flat...
Black Flag - anything from 'Nervous Breakdown 'era: Wasted, Fix Me.
Bad Brains - Pay to Cum
Husker Du - Something I Learnt Today
Dead Kennedys - Every song on 'Fresh Fruit...', the first side of 'Plastic Surgery Disasters'.
Minor Threat - Screaming at a Wall, 12XU
Fugazi - Styrofoam, KYEO
Bad Religion - We're Only Gonna Die
Descendents - Hope, Bikeage
etc etc etc...
Game time - Lupe Fiasco
Sleep - Tupac
Juicy - Notorious BIG
Gangsta shizz, always have it playing in my car on my way to the beach :)
For the biger days-
Tool - "46 and 2" or "Eulogy"
The Prodigy - "firestarter", "Breathe" or "Voodoo people"
Faith no More - plenty to choose from, pick any album, any track..
Rage against the machine - as above
Kyuss - as above
For the smaller, mellow, fun days-
I'm liking Diamondsnake right now.
I'm finding Mozart's opera highlights very relaxing and conducive to getting loose in a crowd or busting the fins out at a solo beachie.
Also Grizzly Bear Yellow House.
disiple- game on
Awesome- Bloody beetroots
Not that I use such language myself but I would have thought Neil Young's 1990 F*!#in'up would be a tune some at Swellnet would listen to regularly, because they certainly do. Especially certain Victorian reporters ... talking about talkin up 1 foot cross shore peelers. Now that leads me to Neil's 1994 tune Piece of Crap or his 1995 Scenery with Pearl Jam.
No no no Paula, Neil Young won't do. If you want to blow off your frustrations you need something with a little more anger. Perhaps Fucking Hostile by Pantera would help. Ah shit there's goes that language again...
