MUSIC GAME FRIDAY

Some people accuse me of having become calcified in my listening habits. Nothing could be further from the truth and as evidence, I submit to you ten of my current favorite albums, which I believe demonstrate the incredible diversity of music I listen to in a wide range of genres.

1. Never Mind the Bollocks, Here Come the Warm Jets (ambient punk)

2. Ghetto Music: From the Blueprint of Big Pink (folk-hop)

3. Yessongs About Fucking (noise prog)

4. 3 Feet High and Rising Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (Daisy glam)

5. Crazy Rhythm Nation 1814 (jangledance)

6. It Takes a Nation of Bee Thousands To Hold Us Back (alt-revolution)

7. Raw Powerman vs. the Moneygoround (chamber garage)

8. Reign in Blood on the Tracks (thrashmericana)

9. Metal Bone Machine Music (experimental cabaret)

10. Excitable Boy in da Corner (singer/song-grimer)


And how about you, small minority of readers who get the joke? What new genres of music are you listening to?

Re: Also:
The Google ad that came up for this one was "Angry, Young, and Poor: punk rock clothing". Can we agree that if you're selling anything on the internet, your target audience is not poor people?

I've got Insane In The Brain Thrust Master of Puppets (hardcore alt-garage metal-hop) on heavy rotation right now, but I don't think it stacks up to The Importance of Being Afraid of a Black Medusa (political emo-hop cover songs).
