56. Green Day – Dookie 1/13
1994. This should be super quick and easy! In and out. Dookie was played a ton when it came out. Not so much since. I’m just perfect now and stepped in line to walk amongst the dead? Green Day became popular for a reason and this album was a hit. After I got into this album I seeked out and purchased their earlier albums 39/Smooth and Kerplunk. Which reminds me that my current itunes doesn’t have those, sidenote. This album went to number 2 on the Billboard Chart, this pretty popular. I don’t know you but I think I hate you. Love the breakdown and transition into Welcome To Paradise((edit- song before that)) . Call me pathetic call me what you will. Do you have the time? When I come around. I was all by my self.
57. The White Stripes – Elephant 1/13
Seven Nation Army is a strong way to start an album. Much of the rest of the album comes close to try to match this but aren’t able to top the first track. That’s not to say there aren’t other good songs, there are plenty. But this is the best one. I don’t know what to do with myself. In the cold cold night. You’ve got it in your pocket. Put it in a safe and lock it. Good solid album if you want something with a little edge to it.
58. DJ Shadow – Entroducing… 1/13
Didn’t write much while listening to this one. Got it in college, was great then, and still holds up today.
59. Justice – Cross 1/14
The best ever album to do dishes while listening to.. And that’s what I just did. There are about 20 moments on this album that I really really love and 50 others that are good too. An all around great time. Check it out if you are down.
60. Weezer – Weezer (The Blue Album) 1/18
1994. Talk about mid high school. This is it to a T. My Name is Jonas. Workers are going home! I thought everyone my age owned this album back in the day, I was wrong, my wife says she did not. What’s with these homies? Did you have to destroy my sweater? You’ll take your car to work, i’ll take my board. Say it ain’t so. In the garage, I feel safe. No one hears me sing this song. Let’s go away for a while, on a holiday. Only in dreams.
61. Sublime – 40 oz to Freedom 1/18
1992. I didn’t really get into Sublime until college when I quickly gobbled up everything they had. Unfortunately the career of Sublime was cut far too short when their lead man Bradley Nowell died of an overdose at too young an age. This album is quintessential. WOOF WOOF! Second gear was such a turn on. Not going back. Can you loan me a buck or two? A 40 oz to freedom is the only chance I have to feel good but I know I feel bad. She was living in a single room…. smoke cigarettes til the day she died. Badfish is a classic top 10 song for me, even though it’s not played as often any more.. It still takes me back. All the way back. Won’t somebody get me off of this reef?
