Top 15 Songs Of 2017

Top 15 Songs Of 2017

Top 15 Songs Of 2017   I had hoped to keep this down to a Top Ten but just like with the albums I couldn’t contain myself. All these songs are great and mean a lot to me, some even make me cry, but all of these songs really “move” me. And even if [Read More]

The Top 15 Albums/EPs Of 2017

The Top 15 Albums/EPs Of 2017

The Top 15 Albums/EPs Of 2017   Andy & I have been thrashin’ and bangin’ six and a half years now and the music has only become better, especially in the last two years. Before I would have a Top Ten, but I had to extend that to fifteen and I still kick [Read More]

Dead Boys – “Young, Loud And Snotty”

Dead Boys – “Young, Loud And Snotty”

Dead Boys – “Young, Loud And Snotty”   I never thought the Dead Boys were one of the best early punk bands. Sure, I liked them but I thought a lot of their music was still caught in the past. Garage rock with a jolt of energy and nihilistic lyrics. [Read More]

D.R.I. – “Crossover”

D.R.I. – “Crossover”

D.R.I. – “Crossover”   Today’s dual texting is about one of those bands that were influential in creating the whole crossover of genres that invented new forms of music like “Thrash.” Much like in the late fifties when black rhythm [Read More]

The Dictators – “Blood Brothers”

The Dictators – “Blood Brothers”

The Dictators – “Blood Brothers”   The Dictators were one of those bands that really, “set the stage,” for punk to happen. I first became aware of them with their first release in 1975, Andy a little later with this album. What was [Read More]

Black Flag – “Damaged”

Black Flag – “Damaged”

Black Flag – “Damaged”   Just like I think Black Sabbath was the first metal band and refined the genre to come. And The Ramones were the first punk band setting the path for all to follow. I would say with Black Flag and hardcore- they did the same. [Read More]

X – “Los Angeles”

X – “Los Angeles”

X – “Los Angeles”   X is one of my favorite punk bands. And they are my favorite L.A. punk band which is saying a lot, as they beat out Fear, Angry Samoans, The Screamers, Circle Jerks and Black Flag. I must admit a lot of it’s due to their [Read More]

MINOR THREAT

MINOR THREAT

MINOR THREAT – “MINOR THREAT (Comp)”   Minor Threat was one of those bands that somehow slipped through our ears, mine and Andy’s. We knew the name, of course, but somehow were never exposed to their music early on. I didn’t hear them till [Read More]

Angry Samoans – “Back From Samoa”

Angry Samoans – “Back From Samoa”

Angry Samoans – “Back From Samoa”   Andy & I have always prided ourselves on having the most absurd sense of humor. Others go for accolades, we go for ridiculousness and ridicule. Unfortunately, Americans have decided that during the next [Read More]

AC/DC – “Let There Be Rock”

AC/DC – “Let There Be Rock”

AC/DC – “Let There Be Rock”   They may not be punk and they may not be, really metal but they may be one of the best rock bands of all time and I’m positive most of TNB’s readers would agree with that statement. So when Andy Bang picked [Read More]
