I’ve been a bit MIA lately, but I hope to get back to regular posting–starting with this #musicmonday edition.
Disturbed “Land of Confusion”
Why this wasn’t on my favorite covers post, I can’t say, but it’s awesome.
Corey Taylor “Taciturn”
There’s a super awesome solo concert with covers I never would’ve imagined (Eagles and CCR, really? Yes.) I’d never heard “Taciturn” before this concert, so I thought I’d check it out after loving it at first listen. And boom, the live version sounds exactly like the studio one. Why? Because it’s Corey Freaking Taylor.
Five Finger Death Punch “I Refuse”
Another slow-jam. Ha! Is this a slow-jam? Beats me. I like it though. I do like FFDP, but I have to say, their songs all sound the same, no? Especially the guitar solos. The slower ones have more of their own sound, I think. This guitar solo in particular is not very FFDP at all. Thanks to Pandora for this one.
Korn “Coming Undone”
First off, this album cover is the stuff of nightmares. Now, to me, Korn is synonymous with “Freak On a Leash” and nothing can change my mind. I don’t know much of their music at all. Not everything needs an explanation. This is pretty catchy despite how repetitive it is. Thanks for Alex Hefner for this one.
Disturbed again?? It’s simple. I was doing a 1k piece puzzle in my living room, as one does, and Pandora’s Breaking Benjamin radio was playing a crap-ton of Disturbed tracks.
So, yeah. That’s it.
Until next week, rock on.
Thanks for spending some time here.
Are awesome? Hmm.
Here’s a list of some songs I found in my laptop’s music folder. I’ve been using Spotify lately, so I haven’t opened this folder in a while. I was introduced to most of these songs from a local radio that no longer exists. These songs were on heavy, heavy rotation about three or four years ago. Blah, blah, get to the tunes.
In alphabetical order for bonus points!
Bush – “The Only Way Out”
Yes! One of my favorite quotes makes a pretty good song. I don’t think this song made it big. Perhaps it wasn’t grungy enough for Bush fans? Beats me. I love it. Continue reading
The amount of talent on YouTube astounds me. You’ve heard of mashups, right? Glee was notorious for them. This collection is better. Sorry, Glee.
These songs should not work. They defy all logic. You read the titles and immediately think, there’s no way. Trust me. They work. Oh, do they work.
I’ve broken down 35 of my favorite mashups into categories for your listening pleasure.
The “Why Does This Work???” Group
I’ll start with the most amazing mashups based solely on their unbelievability factor.

I’ve chosen a music video for this week. This song never fails to do crazy empowering things to my spirits, but when I first heard it paired with the video, it was like a punch to the gut by Hulk himself.
