Friday 8-Track

The bachelor party edition.

The Darkness - "Black Shuck" - Permission to Land

This song f'ing rocks. I think it's about a demonic Hound of the Baskervilles-type dog.

Creeper Lagoon - "Up All Night" - Take Back the Universe and Give Me Yesterday

This album is a mess but I guess it's the indie rock equivalent of fun cheesey pop. My buddy (the groom) and I always liked this song because it contains the lyric "Yeah you right!" which a friend of ours from high school used to always say.

Primus - "Tommy the Cat" - Sailing the Seas of Cheese

A first- and third-person narrative about an alley cat looking to get laid, set to a bass-a-rific funk-metal soundtrack (I'm running out of hyphens). If that's not a recipe for a party classic then I don't know what is.

Smoking Popes - "Let's Hear It For Love" - Get Fired

Well, there has to be at least one bitter cynical track on this list. Why wasn't this band huge?

Lustra - "Scotty Doesn't Know" - Eurotrip [SOUNDTRACK]

A hilarious song from a terrible, terrible, terribly fun movie. The cameo by Matt Damon "singing" this song is worth the price of admission.

Queen - "Flash's Theme" - Flash Gordon [SOUNDTRACK]

I don't have the energy to get into this one so I'll leave it at: Best. Soundtrack. Ever.

The Black Crowes - "Hotel Illness" - The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion

The intro to this track just gets me going. This will always be for me one of the best rock albums of all time. (Get your ass to the 9:30 Club!)

Wrens - "Hats Off To Marriage, Baby" - Secaucus

A repeat appearance but...all too appropriate?

hahahaha--How about, "For Whom the Bell Tolls"--Metallica??


oK. Serious bachelor party song--
"Message of Love" by the Pretenders. It's corny, but it's a great song...

Wow. Don't know if we'll be rocking out to Ride the Lightning on the trip up.

Mmmmm...Chrissy Hynde. So hot.
