I think I've been getting Fucked Up confused with Fuck Buttons, so it was totally not what I was expecting. However, it was awesome!

Soundgarden are cool, and I quite liked the Dinosaur Pile-Up song.

I've never been able to get into Neutral Milk Hotel for some reason, and sadly this was no exception...


That's as far as I got before 8tracks went down the shitter and refused to play any of the other tracks

Just in time before the tracks you were looking forward to started playing.

If Will still hasn't fixed his retarded computer I might have to redo the playlist with YouTube.

Snazzy.

A few bands I'm not at all familiar with so this should be good fun, cheers.

edit: loving "Holland, 1945".

^Yeah, I didn't feel like doing 10 songs by the top 10 biggest modern rock group, although some of these obviously are well known. FYI, Coparck is a Dutch band (with English vocals), that sadly split not too long ago.

Updated the OP with a Youtube playlist for you and others interested.

Let's see... First off, eff u for subjecting me to Chris Cornell twice

Nice choice in The Joy Formidable, quite like them. . Other wise, really like Fucked up, which I've been meaning to check out, and I really liked the Cymbals Eat Guitars track

^I'm like that with most genres. I don't care for them, I care for particular bands and solo acts.

You don't like Chris Cornell? Man, Mike, you make no sense at all!


I don't. Black Hole Sun is the only thing he's done right.

Oh snap.

Music doesnt need to be quality to be good.


Press eject, give me the tape, if you know what's good for you

Hey Frank, decent list.

I thought Fucked Up where a terrible punk band, and I was proved right when that idiot started shouting about 20 seconds in. I skipped the track there.

Soundgarden is always a good choice.

Dinosaur Pile-Up where alright, but nothing really stood out for me. Unfortunately, the fascists at EMI blocked the Neutral Milk Video hotel, so I couldn't listen to it. I've heard everyone basically has a wank over those guys though.

Cymbals Eat Guitars was meh, but I listened to a lot of The Joy Formidable towards the end of 2011, and Whirring is a great choice. Dat outro.

Pearl Jam and Jawbox were alright, but Gomez started out really well. That is, until it turned into a pile of wank. Coparck was decent (did anyone else think the singer sounded like Thom Yorke?) and Chris Cornell is amazing.
