Sugar, We're Going Down
Fall Out Boy: From Under the Cork Tree
"We're going down, down in an earlier round
And Sugar, we're going down swinging
I'll be your number one with a bullet
A loaded god complex, cock it and pull it"
Thank you Myspace for helping me discover this band. I love this album. (*****)
Gwen Stefani: Love, Angel, Music, Baby
The first three songs are about time, money, and winning, and the album just gets better from there. What's not to love? (*****)
Black Eyed Peas: Monkey Business
"You see yourself in the mirror
And you feel safe coz it looks familiar
But you afraid to open up your soul
Coz you don't really know, don't really know
Who is, the person that's deep within" (*****)

"Zieg heil to the president gas man,
Bombs away is your (pun-ish-ment),
Pulvarize the Eiffel Towers, who criticize your (gov-ern-ment)..."

"I would dig a hole all the way to China, unless of course I was there, and I'd dig my way home. If by digging I could steal the wind from the sails of the greedy men who ruled the world..." (*****)

Weezer: Make Believe
"Where I come from isn't all that great;
My automobile is a piece of crap;
My fashion sense is a little whack,
And my friends are just as screwy as me...
Beverly Hills - That's where I want to be!
Living in Beverly Hills..." (*****)
I'm Supposed To Die Tonight
50 Cent: The Massacre
"Sometimes, I sit and look at life from a different angle. Don't know if I'm God's child or I'm Satan's angel." Sing it, Fitty! (*****)
I love how Beck samples the Beastie Boys' "So What'cha Want" (which itself is a sample of Sly Stone's "Time for Livin'") while singing, "I won't give up that ghost. If you take away, these tongues are twisted... There's too much left to taste that's bitter..." And then Beck goes into this chorus of "Na na na na na na na" that is reminiscent of the Meow Mix jingle... (*****)
"When am I gonna come to my good senses? Probably the day Bush comes to my defenses..." (*****)
The Postal Service: Give Up
"The people thought they were just being rewarded for treating others as they like to be treated, for obeying stop signs and curing diseases, for mailing letters with the address of the sender... Don't wake me, I plan on sleeping in..." Thank you, Chris Wetherell... "Nothing Better" is a great track on this album, too... (*****)
Verse Chorus Verse
Nirvana: With the Lights Out
"And if you save yourself
You will make him happy
He'll keep you in a jar
And you'll think you're happy
He'll give you breathing holes
And you'll think you're happy
He'll cover you with dust
And you'll think you're happy now..." (*****)
Tilt Ya Head Back
"I see you lookin', uh
