"mother" = perfect riff, over which there is danzig's characteristic lowing, which is totally theatrical i.e. capable of high ridiculousness but also there's this unsettling quality to an unbroken character, and then the song also captures a kind of metal appeal by delivering something distant and dark and nightmarish in a totally visceral way

mother

aw mother

Tough call, this is kind of right when I was starting to get my own music taste so I have feelings for quite a few of these.

This looks to be stuff from '93 and '94. To give you an idea of just how much other stuff MTV discarded to pare things down to just these tracks, may I propose a pair of alternate universe Buzz Bin variants...

1993:
4 Non Blondes - "What's Up?"
Beck - "Loser"
Belly - "Feed The Tree"
Bjork - "Human Behavior"
Breeders - "Cannonball"
Digable Planets - "Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)"
Dinosaur Jr. - "Start Choppin'"
Frank Black - "Los Angeles"
Juliana Hatfield 3 - "Spin The Bottle"
Lemonheads - "Into Your Arms"
Lenny Kravitz - "Are You Gonna Go My Way?"
Matthew Sweet - "Girlfriend"
Nirvana - "Heart-Shaped Box"
Pearl Jam - "Daughter"
Porno For Pyros - "Pets"
The Proclaimers - "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Soul To Squeeze"
Smashing Pumpkins - "Disarm"
Spin Doctors - "Two Princes"
Tool - "Sober"
U2 - "Numb"
Ween - "Push Th' Little Daisies"

1994:
Alice In Chains - "No Excuses"
Beastie Boys - "Sabotage"
Candlebox - "Far Behind"
Collective Soul - "Shine"
Counting Crows - "Mr. Jones"
Crash Test Dummies - "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm"
Green Day - "Basket Case"
Hole - "Violet"
Lisa Loeb - "Stay"
Live - "I Alone"
Mazzy Star - "Fade Into You"
Nine Inch Nails - "Closer"
Oasis - "Live Forever"
The Offspring - "Self Esteem"
Pavement - "Cut Your Hair"
REM - "What's The Frequency, Kenneth?"
Sheryl Crow - "All I Wanna Do"
Soundgarden - "Black Hole Sun"
Tori Amos - "God"
Urge Overkill - "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon"
Veruca Salt - "Seether"
Weezer - "Buddy Holly"
Whale - "Hobo Humpin' Slobo Babe"

...which will likely make you nostalgic or nauseous. Or, as is so often the case with these things, a combination of both.

those weren't actual buzz bin stuff videos. though, thats just stuff you made up

No Whiney I literally tapped into the alternate universe and brought these through from the other side do you see because that's what I am actually claiming here.

Soggy Cheeseburgers (Deric W. Haircare), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 05:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm saying a list that has multiplatinum band u2 on it and a whale video that never made it out of Alt Nation rotation wouldnt be in the Buzz Bin even in an alternate universe.

the ineffable genius of DJP (Whiney G. Weingarten), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 05:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

Pearl Jam's "Daughter" didn't even have a video. This is a list of nonsense from your iTunes

the ineffable genius of DJP (Whiney G. Weingarten), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 05:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

Also, I didn't check beforehand, but it appears that most of those artists qualify. And considering that the videos of most of those songs were effing ubiquitous during that time, the objection is overruled. (gavel sound)

I like that this is apparently actually making you angry. Such are the passions stoked when the conversation turns to the Alternative Nation.

Soggy Cheeseburgers (Deric W. Haircare), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 05:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

Hey man nice shot in #3. But actually I like most of this in at least an inactive way.

Thu'um gang (jjjusten), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 05:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

Ha wait I just reread the list, I am a liar, I actually hate about half these songs, I think I was just caught up in a nostalgic moment there for a second

im disappointed in you jjj for liking filter

fuck deathcore and metalcore (Algerian Goalkeeper), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 05:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

Hey man nice shot is totally acceptable and the remixes on the maxi-single (old man moment) are pretty awes, def the best fake swing industrial outside of course of empire. Also I am watching the twist of Cain video atm and Danzig is wearing martial arts gloves for no discern able reason, which is awesome.

if you want to find hell with me
i can show you what it's like...

also: "hey man", "low", "cantaloop", "zombie", "more human", "creep", even "everything's zen"

and there is no sense in which "twist of cain" is better than "mother", except boogie, and that is a small sense

more human > mother > low > what would you say > everything zen > hey man nice shot > creep > hey jealousy > cantaloop > no rain > plush > zombie

some dude, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 12:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think "Zombie" is the clear winner for worst song on this

the ineffable genius of DJP (Whiney G. Weingarten), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 12:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

"what would you say" - once you get past the vocal delivery this isn't half bad.

White Zombie or Danzig, not keen on anything else here. Worst of the bunch by a country mile: 'Zombie'.

i'd been meaning for a while to start a white/rob zombie singles thread to talk about how classic "more human" is but i guess i don't need to

some dude, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 13:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

Saying this is the fourth best song on this is insane, but I fuck with "WWYS," "Too Much" and "Dont Drink the WAHTAHHH"

the ineffable genius of DJP (Whiney G. Weingarten), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 13:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

"Don't Drink" has a nice Peter Gabriel quality if you believe in nice Peter Gabriel qualities

Was all "hey, why isn't Creep on this list... oh wait."

This was the year that I worked in a record shop, so I got way, way, waaaaaayyyy overexposed to all of these records. Creep was the only one that didn't leave me traumatised by the experience.

But seriously, why aren't Feed The Tree and Cannonball on this album? Either of those tracks would smash Creep. (One of them literally.)

White Chocolate Cheesecake, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 13:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

Lol this list

Even though I don't mind many of these songs, they do explain why I spent most of the 90s in raveland

also jjj OTM, only sub "Creep" for "Mother"

Oh I'd have voted "Cannonball" in a heartbeat
