Plumbing Info Playlist #3

So long before I turned to the punk/alt new wave scene I was a heavy metal guy. Think Ozzy painters hat with heavy metal band pins,

Plumbing Info Playlist

You know you want one

Ozzy, Van Halen, Judas Priest, Metallica. It’s a sweet look.  I remember fondly going to Record Town with my dad to buy Motley Crue’s Shout at the Devil cassette. He took a look at the cassette and said “Are you really gonna listen to this sh*t?” Ah the memories. So even though my preferences have changed I’ve never strayed far away from my heavy metal roots and I still enjoy listening to new bands if they aren’t too nuts. So enjoy.

 Playlist #3 Let’s Rock – It’s Plenty Plumbing not Pretty Plumbing

1.) Mother – Danzig – When I try to figure out what this song means I stop at “Mother, tell your children not to come my way” I just picture a very bad man living in an apartment with writing on the walls, hundreds of note books with his manifesto and black lights. It’s a hell of a song though.

2.) Fire Woman – The Cult – When I first started to listen to this song my buddy’s would laugh at me. After 30 years it’s a classic. Who’s laughing now losers?

3.) Thunderstruck – AC/DC – I sort of overplay this song because my kids like it but it’s still one of those tunes that pumps you up.

4.) A Warrior’s Call – Volbeat– This is a newer band out of Denmark that have been hitting their stride lately. I believe this the finest heavy metal band in the world right now. They are one of those bands that can appeal to everyone who likes hard rock. I do them a disservice by putting only one tune on this list. Maybe I’ll put out a “Volbeat Best” playlist someday.

5.) The Last in Line – Dio – RIP Ronnie James, may the angles and demons escort you to your rightful place as a rock God. I used to

We’re off to the witch…

come home to watch music videos in the early 80s and this was one of my favorites.

6.) Too Young to Fall in Love – Motley Crue – Do I have to explain?

7.) Wasted Time – Skid Row – To all of the Skid Row fans out their don’t get too comfortable, this is one of the only ones to make the cut but it is a great song.

8.) Diamond Eyes – Shinedown – Another newish hard rock/heavy metal band sporting one of the best lead singers in rock with Brent Smith. If Volbeat is #1 Shinedown is #1A. If you haven’t listened to Shinedown they already have a pretty large catalog of greats.

9.) Seven Nation Army – The White Stripes – Jack White at his finest. This will get the crew going.

10.) Sugar, We’re Going Down – Fall Out Boy – Just listen, this is a jam.

11.) Schism – Tool – I contend this is one of the greatest heavy metal tunes of all time by one of the most frustrating metal bands of all time. A record every 5+ years, Damn you Maynard.

12.) Balls to the Wall – Accept – Oh yes I did! This is an almost blatant rip off of AC/DCs sound but Accept had been at it for a while and were one of the founders of speed metal so we have to give credit where credit is due.

13.) Free Wheel Burning – Judas Priest – Even though Rob Halford is a bit on the nutty side he has one of the most recognizable voices in rock history. I mean who doesn’t dig the leather. This was another nostalgic video with KK Downing and Glenn Tipton rocking that shit with the dual guitar solo. Good stuff.

I hope you enjoy the little glimpses into my music bio. I’m always fascinated by how peoples musical taste form and evolve. What hooks them and why. Have a great St. Paddy’s day.
