    The song I would pick for that would be a mixture between Limp Bizkits “Break Stuff” and Korn’s “Y’all wanna single?”

    I’m not really a violent person, I just have some inner rage that rarely makes it out. Driving, Chicago, and my in laws usually bring that monster to the surface… otherwise I’m just too damn happy go lucky.

    GNR – Night Train.

    Mostly because it subscribes to the 2nd Law of Hard Rock: More Cowbell!

    (the First Law being “You don’t do Heavy Metal in Doubly”)

    I spent an entire summer listening to that album at a gaming table with Brak. Good call.

    O Fortuna from the Carmina Burana.

    It’s been used a zillion times for movie soundtracks over the last 30 years, but it never gets old.

    This band played with the Flute Squad not too long ago, and they played most recently at the arts non-profit where I “work” nights.

    If you like psychedelic/progressive rock, then you should listen to anything they make. “Year of the Clam,” their latest studio effort, just came out this past weekend. It will be one of Baltimore’s top 10 albums…Mark my words.

    Had to resurrect this, since lately it seems like I can’t stop digging on Iron Maiden’s ‘666’. From the opening guitar, to Steve Harris’s bassline, to Bruce Dickinson wailing away, I can’t stop listening to it.

    Here, it speaks for itself.

    EDIT – Man, there are so many things wrong with this post, I am ashamed to say.

    First, somehow I completely fugged up the link, and inadvertantly directed any poor person hoping for some Maiden goodness to a page on antibodies. Sorry people.

    Secondly, and more unexcusable, was my complete incorrect rendering of the name of the song. What a loser *smacks forehead*

    It is clearly titled “The Number of the Beast,” not “666”
    I have much to learn.

    As penance though, I have the entire Maiden pre Dickinson departure on my mp3 player, and have been wearing it out.

    A nice twist on saying a few ‘Hail Marys’ eh?

    What, all you people in some sort of self-imposed listening ban?

    Are you not ready to rock?

    Here’s another, actually an echo of my first post in this thread when Brak started it up.

    2112, in all its 20 minutes of goodness.

    I mean look at these guys. Do they epitomize rock n roll, or what?

    Ah good, excellent.

    These seem like some good suggestions for songs to listen to.

    *peers back at list of songs LT has posted*

    I should prolly get to them in maybe, oh I dunno, 20 years or so.

    😛 you know I like the old stuff too but I try to stay into the current stuff as much as I can. I don’t like to stagnate much. Btw, “unbeliever” by Android Lust is a good song too 🙂 …

    I caught a Swedish Folk Metal band live recently called Eleveitie (SP is way off) that was pretty good too… They incorporated a fiddle and some sort of woodwind (long straight pipe with the reed at the end, about 6-8 inches long) into their music. It was an interesting sound. Another band that played with them was called Turisas… I think that’s the spelling… I liked them too..they had an accordian and violin… remember I said these were Metal bands.. heh.

    As the final act in my absolution for sins against classic metal, tomorrow I will be at the Maiden concert, rocking with a bunch of fellow middle aged guys, listening to some 50-something dudes kick our asses with tunes from the 80s.

    Review will be forthcoming.

    Maiden rocked big time! This was a totally awesome show, from start to finish. Here’s the quick rundown:

    I head home from work early, to make sure I’m there when my brother from CT arrives. He gets there right around 5 PM, we have a quick dinner and head off to the Comcast center (formerly Tweeter Center formerly GreatWoods), an outdoor venue which used to have a big gen ad lawn, but is less lawn and more seats with a giant roof on it (~20K capacity). Now we live just about 10 miles from this place, and we get there driving on easy backroads in about 25 minutes. Then, the tickets my brother got on StubHub were VIP, so we had our own parking lot and entry. Very easy, and after buying a T shirt (picked up one with the Trooper on the front, and the Piece of Mind cover on the back, yes I wore it that night, and yes I’m wearing it today, and if you don’t approve, well, I don’t care), we head into the VIP lounge section.

    Since we’re there about 6 PM, and the opening act isn’t until 7:30, we sit at the bar and have a few beers, complain about the whiny Red Sox fans and Curt Schilling. It was good to hang out with the brother without the parents or the kids around.

    7:30 finally rolls around, we go to the seats to check out the opening act, which is Steve Harris’s daughter. Eh, utterly forgettable run of the mill hard rock band. She looked ok running around in tight spandex, but really, none of the songs grabbed you.

    Our seats were awesome. They were obviously some sort of coporate box seats, and we were prolly 20 rows back, immediately behind and above a walkway. There was nobody in the box with us, or on either side (what, nobody from Fidelity wanted to come rawk?).

    Right at 8:40 the lights dim, and Churchill’s speech starts until they launch into “Aces High.” What a great lead off! The rest of the set went as follows:
    01. Intro – Churchill’s Speech
    02. Aces High
    03. 2 Minutes to Midnight
    04. Revelations
    05. The Trooper
    06. Wasted Years
    07. The Number of the Beast (There was fire. A lot of fire!)
    08. Run to the Hills
    09. Rime of the Ancient Mariner (HOW GREAT IS THAT?)
    10. Powerslave (this was prolly the best IMO of the night)
    11. Heaven Can Wait
    12. Can I Play With Madness?
    13. Fear of the Dark
    14. Iron Maiden


    15. Moonchild
    16. The Clairvoyant
    17. Hallowed Be Thy Name (I always get chills at the beginning of this)

    So for two hours they went full tilt, Dickinson running around like a madman, wearing crazy feathered masks, crouching on top of the front light boxes, generally whipping up the crowd. Steve Harris was singing along as he drove that characteristic bass line gallop, Dave Murray would just sorta stand there as he played the solos. Overall the musci was super tight, not a note out of place. s

    The sets were great, all Powerslave era. Eddie as mummy robot and android (a guy on stilts) made his appearance. There was fire, shooting sparks, smoke.

    When it was done, the ears were ringing (damn that was loud), but it was a great show. Can’t wait for them to come around again.

    Those are two of my all time favs from them. Especially the Rime of the Ancient Mariner!

    Sounds like a good time man! 😀

    Too bad! They did play the Meadowlands and the Garden on this tour. But I think now all the US dates are done, adn they’re off to Europe.

    No way too old! My brother has two kids, and there were other old folks at the concert. But I was very surprised, pleasantly so, at how many younger peeps around (25 and less). Given that most of the songs were that old or more, I think that’s pretty cool.

    That reminds me that I did see some awesome shirts, from a Nordic tour they did recently: Eddie as a viking, with round shield and big axe. Very Markshirian!

    Yeah, just about none at all, maybe Fear of the Dark. The rest was standing and pumping fists and devil horns (which I’m teaching the boy. He can’t quite do them, lacking the manual dexterity, but he’ll throw out a twisted fist and yell, “DEWIL HORNS DADDY!”)

    Here is something nostalgic…(spell?)

    Avalanches — ‘Since I left You”

    Song titled Frontier Psychiatrist is the reason I bought the album… very good album all around. Here it is on Amazon.
