I will post damn near anything for local bands who want to get their music out there, so email me at:


Include a link to your shit and don't be a fag, you fucking faggot. Eat a dick. Lick on these testicles. I wanna anally inseminate Miles Ellerbeck (this will probably be here a year or two before he sees it...Love you bro). Also open yourself up to constructive criticism. I'll bluntly tell you it sucks and give the world a link to see just how bad it sucks. I am mimicking the stream of conscious asshole blogger speech now. Fuck you and eat several more dicks.

Mike Ness

I am a huge Social Distortion fan. They have evolved from a great punk band into one of the best rock bands of all time. Every album they have released has been good in it's own right, some better than others, but all good nonetheless. They are also a great live band, even though tickets can cost upwards of 20 bucks...They always give the audience a career retrospective well worth the money...

These are Mike Ness's solo albums, both classics. He abandons the punk influences and plays in a roots-rock, country style that reminds me of the greats of the outlaw subgenre, like Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, or Hank Fucking Williams! This is some great stuff.

"Cheating At Solitaire" is mostly Ness' originals with some covers, while "Under The Influences" is an all-cover affair. All of his covers are very faithful to the originals...All the material he has ever released, in Social D, or by himself (fuck, even in Easter) command a listen...
