porn, cigarettes, and three-chord progressions: happy rock-n-roll birthday

Artist Song
mando diao  motown blood 
the pixies  crackity jones 
the beatles  helter skelter 
cake  comfort eagle 
the slits  love und romance 
dead kennedys  chemical warfare 
rancid  maxwell murder 
hot hot heat  alone in the city again 
elvis costello  pump it up 
violent femmes  36-24-36 
johnny cash  rusty cage 
black rebel motorcycle club  spread your love 
the velvet underground  run run run 
pere ubu  street waves 
drive like jehu  good luck in jail 
gang of four  natural's not in it 


made for a diggable boy as an 18th birthday present, with the only background information about his taste in music being that he likes brmc a lot. judging from the save ferris shirt he wore today, i may have erred on the side of too rockin'.

There is no such thing as too rockin. Especially if the Violent Femmes and Johnny Cash are involved.

Consider yourself an educator, then, if you think it's a bit much. (As for the JT love, I actually put his stuff on mixes fairly consistantly. I *heart* me some white boy/superproduced funk.)
