Y'all welcome to the…
Soooo whats all this then? Well im sure y'all know I can go overboard when it comes to my playlist covering the 60s-80s, but wait! There’s more!!! My catalogues cover the 50s to the modern age of 2020 so let’s take a walk through them!
So this baby at just about an hour is my newest, I know very little on this era, for those who are hardcore enthusiasts and experts sorry! But for those just looking for a good time let me tell ya that you will not be able to keep still! It’s a fresh learning experience for me which I know I’ll have great fun with
Artists so far include Fats Domino, Harry Belafonte, Elvis Presley, and Little Richard, and a small handful of others
(Now no fear! she will be getting plenty of work in the future)
I doubt I need to explain this one but as a briefer its a 34 hour deep dive into as many corners of rock that I’ve been able to catch onto, artists here include The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Cheap Trick, David Bowie, Lez Zeppelin, The Who, and roughly 50 more!
At 6 and a half hours this one is quite at my roots of discovering this, way back when in elementary school man you could catch me living and breathing Green Day and Nirvana, but it aint just that! This wild ride follows Blink 182, Blur, Green Day, Nirvana, Oasis, The Offspring, Pearl jam, The Smashing Pumpkins, They Might Be Giants, and Weezer.
Now skipping over the 00s (another true love of mine, just impossible to fuse sounds of my chem and vampire weekend into one) rolling in at 13 hours we find ourselves in times that seemed like just last year but sike! It’s been a decade!! This all is that sorta post heavy emo phase transition taste for me, it includes the 1975, Catfish and The Bottlemen, Gerard Way, Gorillaz, The Hives, My Chemical Romance, Ok Go, Palaye Royale, the strokes, and many more
And finally at 5 and a half hours we find stuff fresh off the record press, and man despite the horrors of 2020 its music was fucking brilliant!! Some of these new releases are from Billie Joe Armstrong, frank iero, gorillaz, Hayley williams, the hives, I don’t know how but they found me, the network, The Strokes, and The Used!
