Seriously though, I get distracted easily. I start these challenges, then I forget to finish them. I'm trying to tie up loose ends before the end of the year, and for that you are welcome.
Hey...they are a few days left in 2013. ;)
Here are the bands and artists from the tail end of the alphabet that I know and love.
X - I got nothing. I tried.
Weird Al Yankovic
He did weird before it was trendy. I love him. I wish he made more videos.
Okay, so it was really just the one song, but oh what a song it was. You know all the words to this one. Go ahead, sing along.
You want it? You got it.
Young the Giant
They're mostly just another one of the great many alternative rock bands, but this song in particular resonates with me enough that I'm putting it here.
They weren't around a whole long time, they didn't release a ton of records, they never hit super stardom, but I can promise you that this song is part of the soundtrack of your life.
The English rock band that produced Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, they helped introduce the world to the distortion pedal and for that we thank them. They're also in the Hall, which is awesome.
I don't really need to write much, do I? Good. I didn't think so.
I love me some guitar riffs that just go from the start. This music is totally not about the lyrics. Not even a little bit. I love me some crazy ass beards. I love me some ZZ Top.
She's new. She's young. She's sexy. And she sang this. Oh my.
