It's saturdaynight. I'm bored. Ignition is in the stereo, but ends in about 15 minutes. Time is running out....

What should I put in next?

(RAFRAG is in the car, can't listen to it)
(I don't have S/Tyet)

Hey, Chris9012. If you still want advice, I would suggest Smash or Ixnay, my favorites.. Or if you mean non Offspring stuff, perhaps some new Pennywise or Linkin Park. If you don't have that, maybe you should give my own music a try. :)

How about Days Go By. Or you could just listen to Ignition again.

I went for CO1.

If had had choosen non-offspring, it probably would have been Ramones. Recently re-discovered them, and man, they still rock!

Ignition again may even have been better. I wasn't really into it. But in the period towards the club-shows I really started to love it.

Days Go By has been on my stereo to much the last weeks. Favorite: Slim Pickens Does The Right Thing And Rides The Bom To Hell. (everyone should type the whole title)

Good choices. I have CO1 in CD format, and IT ROCKS! Hard!
Slim Pickens Does the Right Thing and Rides the Bomb to hell is one of my favorites too. But Turning Into You is better.

Have you had a chance to listen to Ya Know? I'm thinking about giving it a listen but I'm waiting for someone else's opinion.

General Chat thread, right?

You know what, I think for once I'll go ahead and give this kind of thread what I actually think. I won't give you anything I consider to be truly difficult to listen to - literally any professional rendition of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata will send me over the edge, foolish uncouth fucker that I am, but I think we'll stick generally in the realm of rock or pop for this, and generally to things that I think might push the average listener slightly out of their comfort zone without actually doing a damn thing.

I'd listen to Delta Spirit's History From Below, particularly if I have company over.

Other albums I'm generally willing to 'just stick on at night' when I'm bored, and which I think might actually not insult people should anyone come over to visit-

Disclaimer - there are many that I have left out, but I've tried to factor in both accessibility and variety, a difficult task in the best of times. Also, aside from some stated Best Of albums, I've tried to stick to real albums that are fun to listen to, generally avoid the label of being super-unknown, but are still quite interesting and rewarding for anyone who isn't too pretentious to listen (or, you know, just doesn't like it). These run the gamut from early doo-wop to the more common modern pop-rock.

Beck - Modern Guilt
Franz Ferdinand - Tonight...
The Black Keys - El Camino
The Hot Rats - Turn Ons (Cover Album)
The Black Angels - Passover
Cake - Showroom Of Compassion
Tiger Army - Music From Regions Beyond
Supergrass - Road To Rouen
Yo La Tengo - I am Not Afraid of You and I will Beat Your Ass
Jack White - Blunderbuss
Calogero - .Calog3ro

This will get me through the next vew saturdays. Thanks.

About "Ya Know": I listened to it just now, not ready to form a opinion yet.
But in general I don't like the concept of posthumous albums. It's a bunch of songs the artist wasn't satisfied about.

That is true. Well I'll probably listen to a few songs and if I really like them I might listen to the full thing tomorrow. Thanks.
