Find out which of these #RuinABand tweets hit the top of the charts on tonight’s new @midnight.

dis make-a me laff!!!!!

#ruinruinaband These are pretty funny, but a lot of these bands were ruined long before these jokes, so I see the modifications as improvements.

1- Guns n George Zimmerman wouldn’t be much if a difference. From what I have read, Axl’s politics align closely with that bigot, so this is a fairer warning.

2- I would hire CSN&Y attorneys at law. Mostly to keep them from making any new albums.

3- I would rather know that a sex offender lives 3 Doors Down than listen to that band.

4- Having no gout is better than listening to No Doubt. To be fair I’d rather not have gout than listen to any band. Come to think of it, I’d rather have gout than listen to No Doubt.

5- Boys II Menstration would be a miracle of science that may allow men to bear children.

6- Unlike most, I hate s’mores, so Faith No S’mores is better than a loss of faith.

7- If it rained Menudo, they probably wouldn’t survive. Win.

8- Run DMC-Section. Don’t dis Daryl Mac. C-Sections save lives.

9- I’m tired of my current sleazy hookup options, so a New Found Glory Hole could only be an improvement.

10- In general, I like the Costco better than the disco, so things are looking up with Panic At The Costco.

Recently enjoyed. I think I got this cheap, which means it was more than 10 years ago. Lately, Priest albums seem to go for more $$$. This is from their really strong streak of great albums and it is evident. Great album. Tons of catchy, hard jams. So much fun to spin.

Recently enjoyed. I pulled this out after missing their recent tour. It sounded like Tanya Donnelley was back with them, which would have been awesome to see. But I saw them on this tour, so “I can die without feeling like the good lord gypped me.” A few years back, I found this sealed for about 6 or 7 bucks. It’s one of my favorite albums from the 90s (the low tide of vinyl production, or “vinyl valley” as I call it.) i had to pull out my CB 12”, too. It was such a cool find, but now I don’t remember where I found it.

I love Throwing Muses, but I think this was their best. They have a crazy sound and I think the production and/or songwriting on this one really gels their style into a more direct record, without losing their wild passion.

I have invented a new, thrilling, unpredictable extreme sport. Showing up at a sold out rock show and trying to get a ticket. I’m 2 for 2 so far!

Rocket From The Crypt slung their stew of surf/western/noise/garage riffs sprinkles with anthemic choruses all night long. They played a few hits and didn’t shy away from EP and 7” selections. Having been deprived of this caliber or rock music, I didn’t even mind the songs from RFTC. but it wouldn’t have killed them to play Ditch Digger. 

They do the whole world a service by touring. And as Speedo pointed out “I know you paid to be here, but we paid to be here too!” Thank you Speedo.

I picked this up when it came out last week at my local shop, Music Matters in Brooklyn. I heard a song on a link in a Merge Records newsletter and I have been anticipating it ever since. Really catchy, well written power pop wit a touch of pop punk. Like Shy Mirrors or on mire mellow tracks, like The Shins. Solid stuff.

Also recently enjoyed with company to impress/spread the word.

Recently relished. All hail the mighty Eric Bachmann, who soldiers forth amid under-appreciation to continuously forge wrenching, earnest, exquisitely crafted, inventive music as Crooked Fingers, Archers Of Loaf, or under his own name. He is a national treasure. I Pre-ordered this from Merge Records as soon as I heard it announced.

Recently enjoyed a few times since last. Once, after I saw a great video of some of these songs live on KEXP and once when we had company over and I was trying to impress/spread the word. Bless the Bach.

Recently celebrated. Also in honor of St. Patricks Day. I don’t remember where I got this one. I know I bought it after I already got all the post-trio Lizzy album. It’s great to hear the best guitar duo mixing it up on here. And Phil’a showmanship. “You’re clapping your hand for me!”

Recently celebrated. In honor of St Paddy’s Day. I found this about 5years ago in a second hand store in the Catskill mountains. For $3. That’s 2 LPs of all The Undertones’ single tracks and the b-sides, an import, for $3. As a member of The Underclones, Madison, Wisconisn’s own Undertones tribute band, and a diligent digger, I feel I earned a find like this. The singles are classic and the b-sides play better than most albums. These guys knew how to do it. And we are all celebrating their national heritage today.

Recently enjoyed. Stolen from my parents since as long a I can remember. I guess I officially took it from their home when I left for college. I was listening to Jody Stephens sing Maxwell’s Silver Hammer because Chris Bell’s Facebook page posted it and I decided I should listen to it with my 2 year old son in the hopes that he steals it from me one day. It’s truly a magical album. Octopus’s Garden, Here Comes The Sun, and Maxwell are great songs for children of all ages. I’m partial to Oh Darling and the original B-Boy Bouliabaise at the end still thrills and flows beautifully. As highly rated as they are, they are NOT overrated.

Recently acquired. I visited the new Rough Trade store in Wmsbrg and picked this up. I heard about them right here on Tumblr on someone’s year end lists. I like them a lot. Catchy, tuneful, winsome. Solid. They may even make my top list, if I make one.
