Goodbye

by Default

This goodbye is just obnoxious enough not to feel sentimental. Best/worst lyric: "We go together like kids and cocaine." I'm going to miss TiMJ and all the great people, but hope to see you again (LetsLoop.com?).

To play against the last Shinedown jam - which was new and purposefully a bit jarring - this is an old favourite. It sounds like a 90's throwback, which are my favourites! Still, change is good. ...So long as it's actually good. :P  ...Also, Watchmen is one of my favourite movies.  :D

Lie

by Black Light Burns

As far as I can tell, this is Richard Patrick (Filter) and Wes Borland's (Limp Bizkit) only collaboration other than last week's jam. RP wrote the chorus, but Damning Well was damned by now, so WB took the vocal lead. It sounds a lot like Filter, which I think is a great thing! :D (...And it's WB's only solo hit.)

Here's another track from Live's new album/singer. I'm really liking it, but still adjusting to their more subtle sound. Without the hooks and big catchy choruses, it just doesn't feel like old Live. Maybe that's the idea? Still - great song, terrible title! :P + :D

OMFG, new Live, new Live! They're back with Chris Shinn on vocals. He sounds like Shannon Hoon (Blind Melon) channeling the ghost of Ed Kowalczyk, which is the opposite of how things actually worked out. :S ...Shinn sang for Unified Theory, which picked up with half of Blind Melon after Hoon died. It was a real gem. This track comes with an intro describing how live this Live is. I like how it's a little grittier than old Live and just love that they're back! :D

Whatcha Gonna Do (Demo)

Whatcha Gonna Do (Demo)

by Alice in Chains

Last week's jam (Jerry Cantrell's Chemical Tribe) got a little chatter going. Hopefully I can stir up more of the same with this: my favourite Alice in Chains rarity! It was on their 1988 demo tape, but I got it from 1999's Music Bank. Layne Staley was just getting out of his glam days, so the energy is uncharacteristically poppy. Lots of fun! :D

Chemical Tribe

by Jerry Cantrell

This is the best Alice in Chains song not to actually be an Alice in Chains song. Rumour has it this became a solo track, because Layne Staley was too far gone. Thankfully AiC still sorta almost maybe kinda had a happy ending. You know, except for death claiming half the band. Still, this song is awesome. :D

New Mark Tremonti b-side! So far both tracks that didn't make the cut - this and All I Got - are among my favourites from All I Was. This keeps happening with Alter Bridge as well (Save Me, Outright / Never Say Die, Zero), which is kinda funny. Still, it's loads of fun digging up gems and hopefully some of you will agree! :D

Here's a leaked GnR song from 2013 that's supposed to be on the eventual follow-up to Chinese Democracy. It's sung by Tommy Stinson, their current bassist. Not what I was expecting at all, but the intro and beat are so slick that I can't stop listening to it. :D (Also, does anyone else think Stinson sounds like Tom Petty?!?)
