Before the term “punk hardcore” was invented to describe the music of Black Flag and other LA bands, Black Flag was just seen as another punk band. “Nervous Breakdown,” their first release, sounds much more like old school punk rock rather than punk hardcore per se.
Black Flag went through a number of different singers before settling on Henry Rollins, and this track is from well before Rollins' time with the band. The singer is actually Keith Morris, later of the Circle Jerks. After he left and started his own band, Black Flag continued under the leadership of guitarist Greg Ginn. Since Ginn was the band's primary songwriter, it wasn't too difficult for them to just hire a new singer whenever they needed to.
I’ve never understood the reasons for the continuing popularity of the song because “Hotel California” is almost a million minutes long and has several stanzas of lyrics that can’t be easy for non-native English speakers to memorize. Of course, some countries may have different standards for what makes music popular; it could just be that the longer a song is, the more impressive it actually seems or appears to be.
Sugarland will be at the Blossom Music Center this Friday, May 13. Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush will be sure to perform their major hit, “Baby Girl,” as well as other Sugarland favorites.
I never knew that the band was a Christian one, though, until some Christian friends told me they were. Even after that, there was still speculation on whether or not they were really a Christian group, or if they happened to just be all Christian musicians who played rock music. Officially, I think they were simply known as post-grunge, more than anything else.
The odds are that your favorite Grateful Dead song is included in this selection. While my favorite, “Sugaree,” is not, some of my other favorites, such as “Touch of Grey” and “Sugar Magnolia,” are on the compilation. Many other popular favorites, such as “Casey Jones” and “Fire on the Mountain,” are also included.
What’s actually amazing about Brainbombs – apart from how abrasive a rock band can actually be – is the fact that no member of the band has killed themselves. Yet. With such a tremendous amount of hate spewing forth from each and every song, it almost doesn’t make sense as to how or why these guys haven’t been involved in some sort of atrocious killings or general violence.
