Industrialstrengthshit – Another Killer Playlist From Your Tiger Pal

mutagen2It’s been a long-ass time since I last put together an 8Tracks playlist for you crazy kids to listen to and I think it’s high time I did something about that.

Problem is, my last mix (Bong Rippin’ Badassery) was so popular it was certified Gold by the 8Tracks community and has had over 3 500 plays to date, no lies.

It’s great that people liked it so much, but it’s made compiling a follow-up playlist a daunting task. Is Industrialstrengthshit, going to kick as much ass as Bong Rippin’? God only knows. But with bands like Taxi Violence, Fucked Up and Cloud Nothings in there, you’ll at least have something rad to kill the next hour with.

Have a killer weekend boys and girls.

And never forget, music will save us Winking smile




500767899_323b1db527When I was in highschool, I used to track down all these songs that I’d listen to on rainy days and as a typical troubled adolescent, I had a lot of those.

From time to time, when that same crippling feeling of sadness and loss gets the better of me, I go back to those songs, seeking comfort.

Isn’t it amazing that music can do that? Doesn’t that blow your mind, because it blows mine.

The thought that the right collection of chords and notes and sounds played at the right time, in the right pattern can somehow make you feel less alone.

Everclear’s “Summerland” is one of those songs. Over time, it’s come to mean a lot to me, especially today when, standing in the ruins of what once was, this one simple line is cutting me up:


I think I lost my smile

I think you lost yours too

We have lost the power to make each other laugh…


I thought I could fix things, but I just made them a million times worse. I always thought you could fix anything, but I see now that I was wrong.

My kingdom for a rewind button.
