This is an idea I've had for longer than I can remember, and I finally got it off the ground: A compilation chronicling the music that accompanied my high school years.
As for most people, my life was pretty shitty between the ages of 13 and 16, and music was one of the things that made having reached puberty a bit easier. The soundtrack to the worst part of my life. Yay!
As you can see from the tracklisting below, it was with a couple of exceptions pretty much all about grunge, post-grunge and alternative rock in those days. While although around this time I started sniffing around Pantera, Sepultura, Machine Head, etc, I hadn't fully ventured into metal yet.
Some of them would become some of my favorite bands of all time (Entombed, Beastie Boys, Ebba Grön, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, The Hellacopters etc), others I soon outgrew and haven't listened to since (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Strebers, Clawfinger, The Offspring, Bush, Veruca Salt).
There are many more I could've included (Metallica and Rage Against The Machine being the most obvious omissions that come to mind), but I decided to set a time limit at 90 minutes so some stuff had to go. Yes, I have limits, believe it or not.
PS. You're not getting a Trippy Shit Tuesday mix tomorrow, you'll have to wait til Wednesday. As a consolation you'll get this week's Friday mix one day early. Things are topsy turvy at Metal Bastard headquarters. You'll take it, and you'll like it.
