Jimi would be proud

I heard this last night on a New York Rangers radio broadcast. Luckily, the NHL put it up on their website:

Manning rocks MSG with national anthem on guitar

It's part of the Garden of Dreams Foundation week celebration, which will explain all the kids on the ice, behind the bench, etc.

Like I said, Jimi Hendrix would be proud.

God Save the Sex Pistols

Over on the Observer, there is an excellent article about the Sex Pistols:

The Sex Pistols "Anarchy in the U.K." is More Relevant Now Than Ever

It's a really good look at the classism that drives the song

Plus if you always wondered who the MPLA, UDA, IRA and the "the enemy" (the NME, I found out many years on) are it discusses that too.

It's not my favorite version of the song - I love this live version more:

The Best Thanksgiving EVER!

If you don't have time for the Arlo Guthrie classic this Thanksgiving, here is a 3:47 Thanksgiving song for you. With a shout out to Public Enemy!

The Dead Milkmen. Half punk band, half storytime with Rodney Anonymous.

Attery Squash - DEVO Was Right About Everything

Thanks to Brian Train for posting this . . . I never heard it before, but I like it.

I knew I was onto something good even back in the day. One of the first albums I ever owned was Oh, No! It's DEVO. I still love that one.

Alice Cooper - Elected

Some Election Day Alice Cooper, because it's Election Day where I live and because I've been listening to a lot of Alice Cooper.*

* And Cheap Trick. They go together.

The Records - Starry Eyes

I heard a snippet of this tonight in the background of a hockey game broadcast. I'd forgotten about this power-pop classic.

Fun song. I need to listen to more of The Records.
