Just in time for a very patriotic 4th comes a very patriotic 4th mix CD! Let's see if up to 4 people download it! One .zip file, 21 tracks, 94 megs.
01 Roger McGuinn - The Star-Spangled Banner
From Project Gutenberg. I post this because he sings all four verses. You can learn more about the lyrics by reading this article by Issac Asimov. The music is based on an old British drinking song.
02 Franz Ferdinand - What You Waiting For? (Gwen Stefani cover)
From a British magazine's mix CD. There's a little Billy Idol in there for good measure.
03 The 5. 6. 7. 8.s - Mr. Lee
Remember the Japanese "Woo-Hoo" band from Kill Bill? Sadly, I heard they broke up about a year ago.
04 Go! Team - Bull In The Heather (Sonic Youth cover)
Wow, the 4th cover in a row! No dancing Kathleen Hanna in this version, however.
05 Kelis feat. Too Short - Bossy
Pretty basic, eh? Just like "Got Your Money" and "Milkshake" was. :)
06 Peaches - Downtown
Currently touring with the Eagles of Death Metal, which must be the Sexiest Tour Ever. This is from her album Impeach My Bush. Ha!
07 Paul Oakenfold ft Brittany Murphy - Faster Kill Pussycat
THE Paul Oakenfold? With THE Brittany Murphy? When do these things happen? Just how many recording artists were in 8 Mile, anyway?
08 Mr. Loco - Real Religious Man
The opening song to Nacho Libre. Bueno!
09 Holy Fuck - Tone Bank Jungle
I downloaded it, thought it was interesting, and then found out they had played in Buffalo just a week before. Farts.
10 Danko Jones - Choose Me
The American bonus track from their newest album, in case you're one of those suckers who couldn't wait and bought the Canadian import (cough).
11 Danger Doom - Occult Hymn EP Skit 1
This free EP follow-up to The Mouse And The Mask can be found at Adult Swim..
12 Heart Attack - Gangsta Boogie
Cee-Lo did the recent Gnarls Barkley project but he also did this as-yet unreleased album.
13 Team 9 - Screaming Pro
According to the file info, this mash-up is best described as "Team 9 vs. Beck vs. AC/DC vs. Michael Jackson". Because that's what it is.
14 Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention - You're Probably Wondering Why I'm Here
15 Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandel - Dueling Banjos
From the movie "Deliverance". Fun facts: "The Star-Spangled Banner" was originally named "The Defense Of Fort McHenry". "Dueling Banjos" was originally named "Feuding Banjos". Okay, maybe those facts weren't fun at all.
16 Kyuss - Conan Troutman (live 5/24/94)
17 El Presidente - 100 MPH
In my circle, "El Presidente" refers to "an extremely weighty stool". But since it's the 4th of July, let's pretend we're really talking about George W. Bush. Viva America!
18 "Weird" Al Yankovic - You're Pitiful
Weird Al specifically said this won't be on his next album.
19 Wevie Stonder - Gagged And Bound
I was told this record would be hilarious. Disappointingly, it was musical instead. Whatev.
20 Sublime - Rivers Of Babylon
In my opinion, the best thing this band ever did. It sounds like they did it without knowing the mics were on. Another cover; what's my problem?
21 Senator Ted Stevens (R) Alaska - Net Neutrality
What an ass. I dare you to figure out what this guy is saying. Then I double-dare you to prove to me why he should be influencing debates concerning communications legislation. Information on this clip has already made it to his already sordid Wikipedia biography; read it and weep.
