Hagfish - Happiness

I haven't thought about Hagfish in some time. That's a shame because their "Rocks Your Lame Ass" album was a mid 90s punk rawk gem. Here's the lead track off that album. Enjoy!

Social Distortion - Ball and Chain

Social Distortion's albums in the early 90s were the soundtracks to my summers. In a lot of ways they still are. Easily one of my favorite bands ever. Here's one of their finest. Enjoy!

Hum - Stars

A good friend of mine discovered Hum in college on a comp and wouldn't stop until we were all believers. This song still gets me going to this day. Enjoy!

Sneaker Pimps - 6 Underground

Sometimes inspiration comes in odd ways. Guess what song was in the opening of today's Beverly Hills 90210 rerun. Here's a hint: It's by the Sneaker Pimps and it's today's song. Enjoy!

Portastatic - San Andreas

I finally got Portistatic's first album in the mail today. Thus the inspiration hit to play one of my favorite songs (and watch one of the funniest videos I've ever seen). Enjoy!

Lit - My Own Worst Enemy

If I had to name 5 songs that remind me of "modern rock" rock radio, I guarantee My Own Worst Enemy by Lit would make that list. Here it is. Enjoy!

Dishwalla - Counting Blue Cars

I really don't know too much about Dishwalla. But I have to say I always enjoyed this song. Enjoy!

Stabbing Westward - What Do I Have to Do?

In the late 90s I used to DJ in a DC bar one night a week (no pay, but all the food and drink I could stomach...yeah, they should have just paid me...LOL). I played mostly punk/goth/industrial/alternative type stuff. Anyway, Stabbing Westward (and this song in particular) really brings me back to those couple of years as this one regular used to request this song EVERY week. Enjoy!

Morrissey - The More You Ignore Me The Close I Get

Do I really need to write about the awesomeness of Morrissey? Like a sentence or two would do him justice. Here's one of my favorite tunes by him from the 90s. Enjoy!

Tori Amos - Crucify

Little Earthquakes by Tori Amos is one of the finest records I've ever heard. Hard to believe that when it came out, I was less than impressed. Good thing, I gave it another shot (as a rule I always give records a second chance...usually a few weeks later). I've been a Tori fan ever since. Here's her fantastic first single. Enjoy!

The Beloved - Hello

Ben Folds Five - Song for the Dumped

Can't say I've heard this version of this Ben Folds Five classic, but hey, it's the only version of the video I could find online (BTW, song not safe for young kiddies). Enjoy!

Superdrag - Sucked Out
