Good Morning, Friends
So it’s been a while since I’ve had to rant on these losers – but here it is. I’m sooo tired of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I believe I said on this very site like year fucking years ago that it was time for these guys to hang it up, but here we, subjected to another round of playing the latest single in to the ground. Dani California was on 3 different stations on my way to work this morning – it’s only a 20 minute drive. Figures it would be on the one day I forget my iPod. But it’s a bad song. As I said back then, they haven’t had a good one since whenever Californication came out. I don’t know what rule it is in radio that just because a band used to rule, we need to play everything they put out until the day they die. And we’ve already begun with bashing the new single in to the ground. So this isn’t going away anytime soon.
On a similar note – the new Tom Petty song. It doesn’t annoy me as much and isn’t terrible – but is a song released in 2006 really classic Rock just because the guy is old? No. It’s not. So it’s either good enough to make it on main stream rock stations – or it’s not but it has no business on Q107 or stations like it.
On a positive note – the song “Warriors of the World United” by Manowar is pretty fun. It’s kind of an old school metal balid. The band will never ammount to anything and the song itself is a few years old, but I’ve just rediscovered it. It’s worth a listen.
Also anything by Tsunami Bomb who I found on Warped Tour a few years ago. They’ve put some good stuff lately if you’re in to chick punk – or at least a chick lead singer.
