Here are all of badstock's jams.
by Bob Mould and Dave Grohl
This is a good one to sing around the campfire.

"As Wall Street goes, so goes the nation. And here's a look at the closing numbers: racism's up, human rights are down, peace is shaky, war items are hot. The House claims all ties. Jobs are down, money is scarce, and common sense is at an all-time low on heavy trading. Movies were looking better than ever, and now no one is looking, because we're starring in a "B" movie." Some things never change.

by B.B. King
This used to be on the jukebox at my local in the old neighbourhood. I'd plug in my loonie and play B.B. King, followed by "Why don't we do it in the road?" by The Beatles. The third song was a wild card. I miss that jukebox. R.I.P. B.B. King

by Lenny Kravitz
I used to have this recorded onto cassette with Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" on the flip side. It had an orange label that was half torn off and when I played it on my crummy, little dual-deck tape player, it sounded like it was taped ten feet away while another crummy, little tape played the original -- but, it still rocked. PLUS, it was the original, uncensored version, where Lenny drops that righteous F-bomb (instead of a car horn), which thrilled me to no end as a teenager.

"Mama said a lot of things and 'be thankful' was one she never minded saying twice/thanks to her I can think clear enough/to be thankful that she died before tonight" Country songs don't always have to be one-dimensional. Here's a great example.

by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Because I just watched Nick Cave's "20,000 Days on Earth" (an excellent Xmas gift from my excellent wife). If you're interested in the notions of memory, myth creation, transformation, inner narratives and other spooky aspects of our lives, you should watch it.

by Angus Stone
This song sounds a lot like a down-tempo Stooges hit "I Wanna Be Your Dog." But you know what? I still like it. Maybe I'll debate the merits of each in my head and you do the same and then we'll discuss later.

I just stumbled onto this inspired Portastatic cover of Destroyer's "Foam Hands." The original "Foam Hands" is one of those tracks that has just kind of bounced around in my head since it first came out back in 2008. Like, my internal dialogue is often going "I didn't know what time it was at all. I didn't know what time it was at all...FOAM. HANDS!" while someone else outside is talking at me. Am I on the spectrum?

"And some people find the taste of pilgrim guts to be too strong. Me, I find I can’t get by without them for too long" just sitting around, watching the rain, thinking bout being an eagle. you know, regular stuff.

by The War on Drugs
"I'm at the darkened hillside And there's a haze right between the trees And I can barely see you You're like an ocean in between the waves" When I get to thinking on how bored I am with all the synths featured in a lot of the music comin out these days, I remember The War on Drugs, and then synths don't seem so bad. This song is from their new album Lost In The Dream. Quickly becoming a favourite.

by Bob Dylan
This brilliant reworking of one of Dylan's greatest songs from, arguably, his greatest album "Blonde on Blonde" blows me away. His vocal phrasing this time around is pure genius. As they say, nobody sings Dylan songs like Dylan. This is also one of my favourite Spring time songs! It's got some sun, some wind, hard patches of ice with a layer of gravel on top and a sense of having finally made it through a long, grueling ordeal.

Hey, did you hear about Stephen Harper and the Federal Government denying that Canada has a "social contract" with veterans that dates back to WWI? Yup, and in 2005, Ottawa apparently "recalculated" how they pay out compensation for wounded veterans whereby they now offer a lump sum rather than a lifetime pension. The fallout being (surprise!) veterans end up with far less money. All I can say is, speak for yourself, Harper. My Canada does indeed have a social contract with veterans. #cuntsarestillrunningtheworld
