For Those About to Rock: The Introduction – Week 1

Edition: September 09, 2009

120 minutes of cock-melting tunes.
No bullcrap.
Zero horse shit.
Rad-ass rebel without a pause.

The Playlist:

01. For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) – AC/DC
To me, this song has always been one of my Kickassest 3 to get the party started, to get the headbang going.

02. Fight for Your Right – Beastie Boys
You gotta fight for your right to party. Word.

03. Black Night – Deep Purple
Yes, Jim Beam Black with ice, please—no, no coke, thank you.

04. Love Gun – Kiss

Ace Frehley does the vocal. Damn, he’s good.

05. Looks That Kill – Mötley Crüe
One of my most fave outta Crüe.

06. Blackout – Scorpions
Solid example of how Hard Rock song should be. Geezers did it better.

07. Soldier of Fortune – Loudness

Untuk meraih publik Barat yang lebih luas, Minoru Niihara, vokalisnya yang asli Jepang, dimarjinalkan. Mike Vescera, asal Amerika Serikat, diposisikan sebagai biduan. Pendengar baru berbahasa Inggris memang kemudian didapatkan, namun jumlahnya tak signifikan. Pendengar setia lama (kebanyakan orang setanah airnya) sebagian minggat karena Loudness dianggap mulai terlalu komersial.

08. You’re Crazy – Guns N’ Roses
The stripped down version. More raw and in your face. I dig this one better.

09. Louder Than A Bomb – Public Enemy
Chuck D is way louder than a bomb.

10. Loco En El Coco – Cypress Hill
Insane in the Brain, loco!

11. How Low Can A Punk Get – Bad Brains
Rastafari, Doc Martens, distortions, & marijuana.

12. Guerrilla Radio – Rage Against the Machine
The Guevara of Rap Metal. Kontra Kultura guerilla.

13. Joker And The Thief – Wolfmother
Don’t know much about them. But who cares. This is millenium-era Hard Rock at its best.

14. Ain’t Talkin’ ’bout Dub – Apollo 440
Breathtakin’ mix and match between Van Halen’s “Aint’ Talkin’ bout Love” + Dub-fueled Drum n’ Bass

15. Injected With a Poison – Praga Khan

Dark. Hard. Manic. Meth-injected. Straight outta Belgian (Techno) underground.

16. Screamager – Therapy?
Put-yer-hands-in-the-air-and-wave-it-like-ya-don’t-care Punk Metal

17. 13 Years Of Grief – Black Label Society
Alcohol fueled Southern Metal.

18. Wild Wild Life – Talking Heads
Post Punk summer beat.

19. Here Comes Your Man – The Pixies
Black Francis goes pop.

20. Candy – Iggy Pop feat. Kate Pierson

Taken from the album “Brick by Brick”. Featuring Kate Pierson (The B-52’S), with a bit too much cheese. …But, hey, it’s Iggy!

21. Rockin All Over The World – Status Quo
Bubblegum-Boogie Rockin’ all over the world, to be precise.

22. Anak Rembulan – Grass Rock
Bagi saya tembang ini amat pas untuk jadi lagu kebangsaan para bikers Himpunan Motor Tua.

23. Aces High – Iron Maiden
Solid-ass NWOBHM (Google it if you’ve got no idea what it is). Hell no, Blink 182 got nothing to do with it! God forbid, don’t let DJ Tiesto screw this epic!

24. I Want Out – Helloween
…Can I have more Jim Beam Black on the rocks, please? Make it double, thank you.

25. The Four Horsemen – Metallica
Signature style of (awesome) Thrash Metal.

26. Iron Man – Black Sabbath
Metal wasn’t invented by Avenged Sevenfold, kids!

27. Slaves & Bulldozers – Soundgarden
Grungy, sludgy, Zeppelin-heavy.

28. Pasukan Perang Dari Rawa – Komunal
Warriors of the Swamp. You know what it means, eh?

29. Fascist Pig – Suicidal Tendencies

This song goes to Benteng Demokrasi Rakyat, wankers!

30. Iron Fist – Motõrhead
Bukan cuma tajuk lagu sudah “benar”. Pilihan nada telah “tepat”—dan “ketat”. Pula, barisan hulubalangnya adalah formasi Motörhead paling “adiluhung”: Lemmy, “Fast” Eddie Clarke, & “Philthy Animal” Taylor.
…’scuse me—yes you, Avenged Sevenfold—get outta the way!
