    The riff. The riff is everything.

    Anthrax - The Constant

      I’ve had Rhett Miller’s “Our Love” in my head for days. It’s a good song, but not that good.

        Electric Wizard - Legalise Drugs and Murder



        Not the easiest to whistle at work, but it's worth the effort. Probably.

          That seems like a parody of grunge.

                Summoned by the notification, I arrive. They're a funny one, Electric Wizard. I find they bear out a theory I've been ruminating on (and heard better expressed than I could by @lowenaffchen off Twitter), that stoner rock is such a simple formula it's incredibly easy to perfect. Hence, you don't need to the entire Electric Wizard back catalogue to enjoy Electric Wizard, you probabkly only need one album that's your favourite, and it's usually your favourite because it's the first one you got into. Dopethrone, in my case. So I'd never got around to listening to owt they were doing by 2012, but I really quite enjoyed that.

                Well they're both genres invented by Buzz Osborne, so....

                    Kim Shattuck passed away last week. Here's a Muffs cover of "Kids in America." The melody of the opening verse (repeating later) is as good as the chorus and this cover is a great mix of rock, proto punk, and pop punk.



                    I guess it's worth adding the original as well for a more New Wave comparison:

                          Troy Shondell — This Time

                          I was thirteen when this was released and it's been part of my soundtrack ever since. Love the boozy instrumental break. You just can't do things like that on purpose

                            For some reason I got the song from the Sheila's Wheels TV ad in my head for several hours this morning. A bad thing that was made even worse by not remembering half of the words, so I had an earworm of some loud Aussie women mumbling.

                              The song in my head is a Christian toe-tapper called Where Justice Rolls Down. I won’t link it because all the versions I found were especially cloying and awful.

                                This glorious bit of 80s cheese is stuck in my head. Enjoy.

                                  'Thank You God' by Tim Minchin is constantly rotating in my head.

                                        Mom leans down and says: "my sentiments exactly
                                        you sonofabitch" I palindrome I

                                        Well, that's my next earworm sorted...
