Jumping right into it this week with a brand new theme. Let’s see, we did POP two weeks ago and Hip Hop last week, that means it’s time for some ROCK.

Here we go.

Same format:

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.)
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Could be old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.

Something Old

Artist: Billy Squier
Title: The Stroke
Side Note: If you were paying attention last week, in Eminem’s new song Berzerk there is a sample of this song that is used perfectly. Nothing like a really good sample to make you appreciate the original. Cheers Billy.
Quotable: “Everybody, have you heard?”

Something Current

Artist: NIN
Title: Came Back Haunted
Side Note: Do kids still remember NIN? What if I said “the guy that did the music for the Social Network, or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movies…” Either way, Trent Reznor is the man. Alternative/rock/techno/whatever he decides to mix up, it’s some good stuff. New album just released this week.
Quotable: “I don’t think I’ll be coming back”

Something to Consider

Artist: The Strokes
Title: Last Nite
Side Note: I can listen to their 2001 album “Is This It” start to finish and never skip a song…. that’s how “into” that album I was. This was the main singe, but any song is a good one to run some miles to.
Quotable: “I keep walkin’ for miles”

I somehow managed to work in a song called The Stroke and the band The Strokes… yep, I’m THAT good.

Since we are talking about “Rock” don’t forget about the $10 off Rock ‘n’ Roll coupons.

I’m going to have a great post scheduled for Friday about what it means to be “that kind of CRAZY runner.” Vague enough? It’ll be a good one, trust me.

What are you listening to now?
Do you miss GOOD rock music?
