Headbanger's Ball

A certain comment thread over at Eileen's got me to thinkin' about loud music, esp. after Pisco mentioned a Def Leppard tune.

So your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to name a favorite piece of music that you like to play at louder-than-is-prudent volume. The kind of song that, when you hear it come on the radio while you're in the car, you holler, "Turn it up!" Extra points if said piece of music has no redeeming social value or "message," and would irritate any self-appointed guardians of the public morality. I'll start us off with:

ZZ Top - My Head's in Mississippi

"Closer," by Nine Inch Nails. (Irritating the self-appointed guardians of the public morality since 1994.)

I've been so wrapped up in my own stuff, I didn't even play! Bad blog friend!

Let me see...

In Living Color's "Cult of Personality" is one of my favorite car driving jams, lots of songs by Tool or Perfect Circle...

Red Hot Chili Pepper's "Give it Away"

Will Smith's "Switch"

"Simple Kind of Life" by No Doubt

REM's "It's the End of the World As We Know It" and more recently U2's "Vertigo."

Not sure if I get any immorality points, though!
