I looked yesterday and I can't find a bit of info anywhere about this thing other than this commercial on youtube. I want to know what else was on it as much as anyone.

I'm pretty sure "Rock The Casbah" has maintained its popularity pretty consistently ever since its release...

I guess I'm just wondering what songs that constitute actual "punk" could have been reasonably considered for a comp like this.. Probably released around 1990/1991

i dunno how cheap media buys were back then but my bet is each of these compilations would have had to go gold to break even.

If I had more time (and talent) than I do, I'd record and upload the punk cover of "Harden My Heart" that's in my head right now. Just imagine it played at 2x speed, repetitive fast staccato bass notes, lose the swing-y triplets, and add frenzied fuzzy rhythm guitar and frenetic drumming.....

someone with some spare time do some archeologic digging for punk/hardcore covers of these songs

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Monday, 30 April 2012 18:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

No way 'Eyes w/o a Face' is the least punk of these unpunk tracks. All kinds of punk happens in the horrible give-the-guitarist-some 'rap' section. He's 'readin' murder books, tryin' to stay hip!'

Based strictly on the tracks themselves I'm leaning Thompson Twins. I don't care if they started as a tribal-industrial collective.

Here's a property listing for the building at the address shown in the advert. Can't get much more punk than this place!

Evidently it's vacant.

xp We need someone in Colorado to go get a tour of that property and see if any boxes of tapes or cds are leftover in a dark corner in the back.

this one sounds kinda like death rock actually...it's terrible

this one will give General Whiney some bad flashbacks - make sure you make it through the chorus at least once, just so you can call yourself an asshole for ever listening to me about anything

This acoustic session is recorded live under a water tower in Kättsätter, Norrköping, Sweden.

I dug through a lot of shit to really find the essence of what it means to cover "my sharona" and I think it's either this

or this

cosi fan whitford (underrated aerosmith bootlegs I have owned), Monday, 30 April 2012 19:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm curious about the release date in relation to when songs like "I Wanna Be Sedated" started getting more popular.

― billstevejim, Monday, April 30, 2012 2:02 PM (1 hour ago) Bookmark

well, the video was shot 9 years after the song's original release on the occasion of the Ramones Mania comp, and it seems like it's kind of attained its current pop culture profile only since then, although it was probably picked to promote the best-of because it was already one of their more popular songs, so that's a chicken and egg thing. i think it kinda became more of an evergreen alt-rock radio song in the mid-90s when they got all the farewell tour publicity, though.

some dude, Monday, 30 April 2012 19:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

that first "My Sharona" video

why is the little sister there

also who turned off the bass player's amp

wait did they just stick 3EB onto the end of "My Sharona"

O_O

so Sister Paul is basically "we're a hardcore band that loves Soft Cell"

this edges the Better than Ezra cover of the same song because of the insightful commentary from YouTube user krenZitapynk in the comments

oh man the vocals on the "Jeopardy" cover are going to be a disappointment, aren't they

ha no if you got Fields of the Nephilim/Mission skeletons in your closet then the Greek "Jeopardy" cover is the clear class of the field here

That "Jeopardy" cover has everything. It's LONGER than the original song, it has an intro that goes on forever, it sets you up for what you think is going to be Joan Jett's "I Hate Myself For Loving You," it's got the world's worst Layne Staley impersonator . . . It's the perfect track, basically. In all of history there is none better.
