Rock the Nation: The Introduction – Week 3

Edition: September 23, 2009*

The Playlist:

Ratt-YouTube
01. Back For More – Ratt

One of my old time ultra fave, back in the glam metal days.
→ Check out their video, too.

VH-Women&ChildrenFirst
02. And The Cradle Will Rock…. – Van Halen

I prefer Diamond Dave to Sammy Hagar. Sammy should quit playing guitar and stick selling tequila.

03. Rock The Nation – Krokus
Di masa lalu, di era Soeharto pongah menyebut dirinya Bapak Pembangunan, ketika Harmoko berlimpah hari-hari omong kosong, saya mengenal Swiss lewat 3 hal:
1. Negara asal Henry Dunant, pendiri Palang Merah Internasional.
2. Piagam Hak Asasi Manusia ditandatangani di Jenewa.
3. Krokus.

04. Riding On The Wind – Judas Priest
Easy ridin’ Metal Gods.

05. Motorcycle Man – Saxon
Easy ridin’ Metal Knights.

Raven-MindOverMetal
06. Mind Over Metal – Raven

Jaman kaset era Perina/King’s/Contessa/Hins/bajakan semua, album Raven ada beredar beberapa. Baru tahu neh mereka asalnya dari Inggris—dan merupakan salah satu pendekar NWOBHM.

07. Rotten To The Core – Hellyeah
Groove Metal, rotten to the core. Hell yeah.

08. Angel of Death – Slayer
Fast kickass thrash. Hey, it’s Slayer!

09. Summertime Blues – Blue Cheer
Their version of “Summertime Blues” sometimes cited as the first Heavy Metal song ever written.

10. School’s Out – Alice Cooper
“What’s the greatest three minutes of your life?”

Alice Cooper: “There’s two times during the year.
One is Christmas morning, when you’re just getting ready to open the presents. The greed factor is right there.
The next one is the last three minutes of the last day of school when you’re sitting there and it’s like a slow fuse burning.
I said, ‘If we can catch that three minutes in a song, it’s going to be so big.'”

DuoKribo-NerakaJahanam
11. Neraka Jahanam – Duo Kribo

Badassest Purple-esque Sabbath-ish symphony by Indonesian Afros.

12. Whole Lotta Love – Led Zeppelin
…Shake for me, girl, I wanna be your back door man…

13. Mongoose – Fu Manchu
From SoCal with Stoner Rock. And so-Stoned Groove. And extra bongs.

14. Youth Against Fascism – Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth against fascism and regularism.

15. Sway – Coal Chamber
…The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
We don’t need no water let the motherfucker burn
Burn motherfucker burn…

16. I Hope You Die – Bloodhound Gang
There’s nothing intellectual about this group—and that’s the beauty of it. Comedy Metal, y’all!

17. Sex Type Thing – Stone Temple Pilots
Scott Weiland is one of the most fashion-conscious frontman in Rock ‘N Roll.
(Sammy Hagar, yes, I’m talkin’ to ya).

WuTangClan-DaMysteryofChessboxin
18. Da Mystery Of Chessboxin’ – Wu-Tang Clan

Swords, Shaolin, and solid-ass East Coast Hip Hop.
→ Watch the video here.

EPMD-SoWatchaSayin
19. So Wat Cha Sayin’ – EPMD

Erick and Parrish Making Dollars.
Dope-ass microphone doctors.
Been around since 1986.
Where ya been, Bling Bling b-boys & Cling Cling b-girls?

20. 24 Hour Party People – Happy Mondays
Mates, just so you know, Ecstasy used to be oh-so very good. Ask Shaun Ryder.

21. James Brown Is Dead – LA Style
Rave Techno and Ecstasy used to be a great combination, too.

22. James Brown Is Still Alive – Holy Noise
Bukan cuma Endang S. Taurina merespons Jamal Mirdad lalu merilis “Jawaban Hati Selembut Salju”. Holy Noise pula menerbitkan balas pantun berupa “Jawaban James Brown Is Dead: James Brown Is Still Alive”.

23. Symphony of Destruction – Megadeth
I went to their concert when they were in Jakarta. Didn’t you?

24. Ich Will – Rammstein
Industrial Dance Metal pyromaniac.

Seringai-MengadiliPersepsi
25. Mengadili Persepsi – Seringai

Satu dari sedikit grup cadas Nusantara dengan kualitas kecerdasan di atas rata-rata. Saya punya respek khusus untuk mereka.
Ayo, rekan muda, jangan cuma minum saja. Jangan biarkan segelintir orang bermain Tuhan.
Mari bangun negeri ini! Bikin Indonesia pintar!
…Individu, individu merdeka! Individu, individu merdeka!…
→ Tonton videonya di sini

26. Clint Eastwood – Gorillaz
Damon Albarn, damn, he’s freakily genius (ada gak sih istilah kayak gitu?)

27. Can’t Stand Losing You – The Police
You think Rancid invented Ska Punk? Maybe. But, hey, try listening to this song first, dude.

28. Jumpin’ Jack – Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
Zoot suit, jumpin’ jack, go-Daddy-o!

29. Suck My Kiss – Red Hot Chili Peppers
From the album titled “Blood Sugar Sex Magik”, one of Rick Rubin’s wickedest masterpiece.

DK-TooDrunkToFuck
30. Too Drunk To Fuck – Dead Kennedys

Dead Kennedys, the Hardcore Punk Frankenchrist. Jello Biafra, ain’t no chickenshit conformist.

31. Policia – Sepultura
Street Punk-infected Sepultura.

32. March of the Pigs – Nine Inch Nails
Beautiful chaos. Wonderful riot. Graceful pandemonium.
