  1. I was late to the party when it came to "Armored Saint". This was the first track I heard, but what a track. I was also lucky enough to hear it for the first time back in the day whilst watching this awesome video. The twin guitar solo attack is a killer.
  2. A warning with this one. Back when I was 12 years old this was my concept of US gang violence. It's brutal stuff, so viewer discretion is strongly advised. BTW, do you recognize the MC. He's come a long way baby.
  3. 60s "Surf Rock" is killer. Dick Dale kicks arse!
  4. I'll gladly "admit" they're from my collection.
  5. You've gotta love Aussie morning television.

    What the Fuck is going on! This is outrageous!
  7. I'm pretty well versed in 60s music, but I don't think I've ever heard of those guys. Any tracks I may recognize?

    Sweden said "Fuck it" and stayed open. The below article is quite long, but it's interesting to see how they went about it without destroying their economy or demoralizing their citizens. https://www1.racgp.org.au/newsgp/gp-opinion/was-the-swedish-approach-to-covid-19-really-a-mist
  9. I was gonna start a "Wig Wam" cover band called "The Wig Wam Teepees", but the whole ordeal made me feel too tense.
  10. I love 60s music and 50s music, for that matter. I've mentioned before how I was very lucky to grow up in a household where music was always playing in some form. I was listening to this stuff before I started school. You've got me reminiscing, so I've gone a bit overboard with the clips, but I love every one. Not everyone's cup of tea, I understand. This is of course, the tip of the iceberg. It was a very rich decade and I haven't even started with the great 50s tunes. Back then, image was a bonus, but it was predominantly about the talent. Nowadays, talent is a bonus, bu
  11. Spot on mate. Perfect definition, but that's not a bad thing. Country & Western music was a big part of my childhood. I'm talking about the old school shit. Marty Robbins, Charley Pride, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams Snr, etc.
  12. There aren't too many Rock Chicks, if any, hotter than Debbie Harry in her prime.
  13. You learn something new everyday. I had no idea the version I'm familiar with was a cover. My head is well and truly hanging in shame.

    Well, there is a possible asteroid strike in the US the day before the election. That would be the icing on the cake. As for Melbourne. After just hearing the press conference, I think there's gonna be a huge surge in businesses opening up in defiance this week.
  15. Just saw JBJ performing at the Biden rally. He's really stretching the friendship now.
  16. I think the current system is more than adequate. If more regulars stepped up, the goal would be easily reached every year, no probs. I don't quite understand the reluctance to sling a few bucks Dans' way. This site is a haven for a lot of people on a daily basis.
  17. A non musical one, but very fascinating. I don't know how many of you are familiar with Derren Brown, but he's a very talented British Hypnotist/Mentalist/Magician/Wizard. Back around 2008 he had a series. This is one episode that i've always remembered, although the other episodes were just as memorable. I might post them down the track. The video goes for 45 minutes, but if you have the time it's well worth watching. I've been tempted to try it myself. It's not really that difficult.
  18. Aztec Camera - Somewhere in My Heart. A Rock/Pop song from 1987 that I've always loved. Back when every Rock/Pop band included a Saxaphone.
  19. Guns n' Roses - Don't Cry (Alternate Lyrics). When the "Illusion" albums came out, I could only afford one. "Illusion II" was the better album and "You Could Be Mine" plus "Civil War" sealed the deal. That meant that I was/am far more familiar with and prefer the alternate version of "Don't Cry". The lines "And when you're in need of someone, my heart won't deny you So many seem so lonely with no one left to cry to, baby" get me everytime I hear it.
  20. Sebastian Bach was more offended than Rob Halford. Great comeback by Rob.

    SNOW

    Firstly, for a split second, when I saw the thread title this sprang to mind. Quite a huge early "one hit wonder" 90s track. Secondly, I'm so thankful that snow isn't really a thing to deal with down here. I can't imagine what a pain it would be. It looks beautiful, but but I know how frustrating it is when you have ice on your windscreen in the morning, but the thought of shoveling snow to get out of my driveway in the morning disgusts me. As for the REO Speedwagon thing. What a kick in the guts!. It's still a year away. Plenty of time to plead your ca
