I usually listen to my Neuros on the way to work, with my generic listnening folder set to shuffle randomly. This morning, my playlist turned out to be, in part:
- Funeral Song – Sleater-Kinney
- Cool to Hate – The Offspring
- Peter Lorre – Satan’s Pilgrims
- Born to Raise Hell – Motorhead (with Whitfield Crane)
Going from “Funeral Song”, which is really brilliantly written and sad and full of awesome metaphors about the end of a wonderful love relationship, to “Cool to Hate”, which is a broad quasi-satire of people who hate stuff ‘cos it’s easier than making the world a better place, was pretty awesome.
