My girlfriend just surprised me with Dax Riggs tickets. Who is Dax Riggs you might wonder??? Well Mr or Mrs uninformed, he was the singer of Acid Bath, Agents of Oblivion, and Deadboy and the Elephantmen. His solo stuff is genius and his voice is haunting.

I don't think my list would necessarily look anything like that, but I also couldn't argue with the majority of those albums being considered "quintessential" and musts for your music collection.


The Low End Theory and Illmatic would definitely make my list. A lot of albums on that list are no-brainers and would appear on pretty much any list, but some choices are just rubbish.

Two amazingly awful tours will coming through pittsburgh this month. The Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray Gin Blossoms tour and then the Fuel, LIT and Alien Ant Farm tours.

Not sure how Papa Roach didn't sneak onto one of these bills.

I had the "pleasure" of seeing Smash Mouth open for Blur at the Metropol.

It could have been, as I ran into some girl from HS that I wanted to....
I think I moved out of town a month later, so that didn't happen.

That's pretty much the "9 from the 90s playlist" after 10am each day on the x.

Think about Fuel also reminds me of pinhead gunpowder. I found them back in the day because I thought that Fuel's guitarist was a member, but it was a different Fuel (post-hardcare CA band, I think). Anyway, they bring back memories as well.

Listened to this song a few times and thought it reminded me of early Green Day.

That's because it basically was early Green Day that evolved into a sideproject for Billie Joe. :lol:

Jason Everman: ex-Nirvana, ex-Soundgarden, and member of Army Special Forces
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/02/magaz ... =all&_r=1&

He had three drill sergeants, two of whom were sadists. Thank God it was the easygoing one who saw it. He was reading a magazine, when he slowly looked up and stared at Everman. Then the sergeant walked over, pointing to a page in the magazine. “Is this you?” It was a photo of the biggest band in the world, Nirvana. Kurt Cobain had just killed himself, and this was a story about his suicide. Next to Cobain was the band’s onetime second guitarist. A guy with long, strawberry blond curls. “Is this you?”

Everman exhaled. “Yes, Drill Sergeant.”

And that was only half of it. Jason Everman has the unique distinction of being the guy who was kicked out of Nirvana and Soundgarden, two rock bands that would sell roughly 100 million records combined. At 26, he wasn’t just Pete Best, the guy the Beatles left behind. He was Pete Best twice.


Chris Carnahan (formerly of 7 Seconds) is now an Army captain who served three tours in Afghanistan

That article was written by Clay Tarver, whose band Bullet Lavolta peaked too early, aka pre-Nirvana.
They were **** awesome live.

Interesting tidbit here:

Bullet LaVolta actually played a show with Nirvana around the time of the album's release, with the opening act being an unknown early incarnation of The Smashing Pumpkins.
