So dedicated to the movement, they played a show in Cuba.
Try to top that Rage Against the Machine.
Manic Street Preachers - You Stole the Sun From My Heart. Amazon.com. Used.

Eventually, I stopped looking.
This past year I decided to fill out my Super Furry Animals discography. I finally picked up the release. For well under a dollar.
Super Furry Animals - Ice Hockey Hair EP. Amazon.com. Used.

As I would so often do, I traded in a handful of compact discs for store credit.
This particular pile was all hardcore.
I used the credit to purchase albums by the Moody Blues and John Cougar Mellencamp.
The clerk made fun of me.
I stand by my decision.
Undertow - At Both Ends. Amazon.com. Used.

That's not the case at all.
I like The Stands. But listening to them again reminded me how few British bands of the 2000s had any staying power.
The forgotten, recent past.
The Stands - Here She Comes Again. Amazon.com. New.

That is not the case.
Every year or so I find another.
I'm expecting to find more.
Milemarker - Non Plus Ultra. Princeton Record Exchange. Bargain punk.

I didn't need it. I really didn't need it.
I never need it.
I still don't have it.
I still want it.
The Stone Roses - What the World Is Waiting For. Amazon.com. Used.
Strange in the sense that there wasn't a lot of crossover potential beyond 120 Minutes or Headbangers Ball.
Into Another. Shudder to Think. Orange 9mm.
Into Another - Seemless. Princeton Record Exchange. Bargain punk.
I'm pretty sure I was wrong.
Pigeonhed - Pigeonhed's Flash Bulb Emergency Overflow Cavalcade of Remixes. Amazon.com. Used.
A decision I will surely regret.
Initial Records Magic Weekend. Princeton Record Exchange. Bargain punk.

We ended up living together in Syracuse.
I was surprised to see Girls Against Boys in his music collection. I should not have been.
Years earlier he had introduced me to The Soup Dragons.
I always forgot how similar our taste in music was.
Girls Against Boys - Freak*On*Ica. Princeton Record Exchange. Bargain punk.
I really liked Hammerbox. Although at the time, I think I was the only one.
I'm surprised I haven't come across Numb in a bargain bin. I wouldn't think twice about repurchasing.
That being said, I'm fairly certain it hasn't aged well.
Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

A quick search informed me that they are still together.
I suppose the key to longevity is the odd hiatus here and there.
Girls Against Boys - Sexy Sam/I'm From France. Princeton Record Exchange. Bargain punk.

I confuse which singles come from which album with some regularity.
And don't get me started on A New Morning. I never remember any of those singles.
Suede - Electricity (Single 2). Amazon.com. Used.
I woke up at 7:30 a.m.
My plan was to watch Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur. Live on ESPN2.
I blame my Google sports calendar. I blame my Live Soccer TV Schedules email. And I blame myself for not paying attention during the week.
The Charlatans - Can't Get Out of Bed. Amazon.com. Used.

I loved the debut and Stay Together. Both instant classics. For years I even preferred Coming Up.
I eventually came around on it.
When I listen to it today I can't figure out what the issue was.
Beyond my intense dislike for the opening track, "Introducing the Band."
Suede - Dog Man Star. New.
Although I randomly caught the Pulp appearance on Letterman.
My roommate freshman year had it on.
I wish I could find it on YouTube.
I remember it being good. It might not have been.
Pulp - Different Class. New.
