Rolling Stone magazine voted Jimi the #1 guitar player of all time. One of my favorite bits of rock trivia, Jimi started off as a session player for the Isley Brothers, then was the opening act for the Monkees! Can you imagine that crowd? Come On, aka, Let The Good Times Roll is a classic blues jam that Hendrix rips apart with such a complex solo, brilliant!
“HEAD LIKE A HOLE” NINE INCH NAILS
From the debut CD Pretty Hate Machine from Trent Reznor and NIN. “Head Like A Hole” has the classic line – “I’d rather die than give you control”. The video is insane with vivid imagery, quick cuts, and of course, the band being trapped in a cage moshing out with their long dreads. It’s a prerequisite song of the 1990s. The song has a techno trash metal feel to it. When played live, Nine Inch Nails would destroy instruments after this one.
“ALL I WANT” A DAY TO REMEMBER
From the summer of 2011 comes this pop punk, metalcore, top 40 smash from A Day To Remember. LOVE THIS SONG’S ENERGY! The video has cameos from many of their friends from other bands including: Silverstein, As I Lay Dying, Pete Wentz, MxPx, and many more. Andrew WK singing in Times Square is a highlight. Great beats, upbeat lyrics, fun song!
