At any rate, these are songs that I find validating, empowering, or just otherwise amusing to listen to when I'm down. I was looking for additions to this playlist today on iTunes, where I found a lovely Cranberries' version of Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way," and Queen's "Who Wants to Live Forever."
Then I remembered that I still had free downloads available at emusic.com, so I went there to try to find Limp Bizkit's "Break Stuff." Sadly, they only had a tribute version, however, they also had what led to the following IM conversation, which I now present for your amusement because I'm too lazy to write a real blog entry for today:
mrsveteran: When I go to this Limp Bizkit tribute album on emusic, it gives related artists as Nine Inch Nails, Severed Heads, and Revolting Cocks.
mrsveteran: Also Pigface.
mrsveteran: So, now, I have to wonder.
mrsveteran: Just what sort of music do you get from the Revolting Cocks?
mrsveteran: And are they angrier than, say, Severed Heads?
mrsveteran: And what about poor Pigface? I would be angry if I had a pigface.
mrsveteran: I would be even angrier than having a Limp Bizkit or Revolting Cocks, because at least you can hide that shit in your pants.
mrsveteran: But pigface -- I mean, you're kind of screwed.
mrsveteran: Unless you get some big motherfucking sunglasses.
mrsveteran: I think I'm going to copy this into a blog entry.
And so I did.
