You Should Listen To: The Cars, “Heartbeat City”

As a teenager, it's a rite of passage to rebel against your parents whether it's actively or subconsciously. I wasn't too much of bad kid growing up. Sure, there's the time my friends and I broke into the Pepsi distribution facility and made a fort out of pallets, and all the times putting things on train … Continue reading You Should Listen To: The Cars, “Heartbeat City”

I Meant To Listen To: Jawbreaker, “Dear You”

I love a great band teeshirt; especially parody ones. The first one I fell in love with was the Deftones' "Dickies" shirt. I had seen it in some trashy rock magazine like Hit Parader or Metal Hammer where there was a picture of Zach de la Rocha wearing the infamous shirt.  The classic horseshoe design … Continue reading I Meant To Listen To: Jawbreaker, “Dear You”
