They're listed in alphabetical order by artist/band, there was absolutely no specific formula for this. Some songs are on the list because I feel like it was an important song in history, others simply because I just think it's the greatest song ever made. Some day this list will be perfect in my eyes, and it will be 500 songs, not 300.

AC/DC - Highway to Hell
Alicia Keys - You Don't Know My Name
Animal Collective - Banshee Beat
Animal Collective - Winters Love
The Antlers - Two

Glad to see the price for a small beer went down to only $36. Snoop can still put on a pretty good show, has a kickin' live drummer and bass player and the Dj did his best Dr. Dre impersonation. It was like 92' all over again except most of us "old schoolers" have kids now so he self-edited some of the lyrics. On Bitches Ain't Shit he said they wouldn't let him sing it so he had the crowd do it. Snoop did a great cover of House of Pain's Jump Around and since we were three or four beers in we did indeed jump around for the occasion. Supposedly he wasn't allowed to do Gin And Juice either so we all belted out the best parts of that slice too: "rollin' down the street smokin' endo & sippin' on gin and juice/ with our minds on our money and our money on our minds."

26. Dez. 2008, 7:16 von cataphoresisI've decided to cross-post my old "Best Of" lists that I had on my website retarsia.com. Here's 1993:
1993 was the beginning of a stretch in the early to mid 90s where not only were the releases top quality, but also pretty easy to find. This, along with 1994, was one of the easiest lists to put together. I dont really have much else to say, so let's get cracking...
10. Black Sunday - Cypress Hill
Reflections: Rapper B. Real, leader of Cypress Hill, has one of the most unique voices in all of rap/hip-hop. Raspy, high pitched, yet powerful. While I dont really have a lot to say about Black Sunday, it is worth the listen. That, and I still know the words to Insane. Test me. (Don't try it. I'll check your ass like a looter in a riot.)
Best tracks: Insane in the Brain, When The Shit Goes Down
9. Pablo Honey - Radiohead
Reflections: Back before Radiohead became the super-artsy championed posterboys of innovative rock, they were a lowly English rock band with a wily lead singer. …
16. Jul. 2007, 19:43 von hippiepunkpiratThis is a list of 20 albums that I would consider to be classics, some of them even on the level of being a masterpiece. They all generally fall into one of the following genres: punk, metal, stoner rock, classic rock, or hip-hop. You won't find any emo/screamo or indie pop bullshit on here. I generally listed them in order of my favorites, but honestly, their all pretty interchangeable. So here they are, with my best efforts at describing them.
1. Social Distortion - Social Distortion
If you read my last entry, you would know that this album is one that I have listened to many, many times while driving down into the Arizona desert. In its own right, completely seperate from the stoner rock genre, this could be a called desert rock album.
This is an album that I have burned for many people, but few them have truly enjoyed it, and none to extent that I have. Sure, they aren't virtuoso intrumentalists, but they're a punk band for Christ's sake. …
3. Jan. 2007, 1:58 von evangeline6Ginuwine is a genious for this song. I love that my sister downloads this shit. jump on it/lets do it/ride it/my pony "my saddle's waiting?" i love this trashy song. i feel trashy listening to it, but it's awesome. i'm so glad that i put itunes on shuffle.
Gin and Juice...i remember my sister at 10 years old asking me what endo was. The chorus is so catchy. You know when mtv asks famous people to host their video playlist and they always pick beastie boys sabotage? well they should be picking gin and juice, the lyrics and the video are better too.
