30 Day Song Challenge - Day 20

Day 20 - A Song that You Listen to When You’re Angry

Descendents "Suburban Home"
(so happy there's an album version of this on Youtube now. If you remember when I started this in May, it was listed as one of my favorite songs and I couldn't find it on Youtube.)

Against Me! "Baby I'm an Anarchist"
When you're angry, Reinventing Axl Rose is the best way to go.
Misfits "Astro Zombies"

Suicidal Tendencies "Institutionalized"
I also like how Mike Muir is obviously not a teenager in this and he's all "What's up, I still live with my parents and that's totally legit..."

I do also adore the version of "Institutionalized" Senses Fail did for the Tony Hawk: American Wasteland soundtrack. I might even like this better than the original. Probably the only thing Senses Fail has done that I've ever liked. (My Chemical Romance also did a cover of Misfits "Astro Zombies" for the same soundtrack, by the way. Which is also worth a listen...I know it's MCR but, trust me.)

30 Day Song Challenge - Day 19

Day 19 - A Song from your Favorite Album

Correction: Day 19 - A Song from ONE OF your Favorite AlbumS!!

I've said this many times before. I just don't have ONE favorite album of all time. I have commitment issues with that, it seems. I can never just pick one. And I'm an album person so I think it's especially hard for me. You know how sometimes people are like, "I'm just going to buy ONE SONG from Nightmare of You" - that doesn't work for me. I need the album and I need to listen to it in its entirety before I listen to specific songs. But anyway, on to Margot & the Nuclear So and So's...

I love this band more than Kim Kardashian loves her $18 million dollars she got paid to televise her fake ass marriage.
They haven't been the same since their breakout, The Dust of Retreat but they're due for another good egg and it'll come sure enough for them, I think. "Quiet as a Mouse" is one of my favorites from the album, aren't you surprised I didn't choose "Skeleton Key"?
