Too right DJJazzyfresh!


I have to admit I'm getting so tired of people who put up reviews complaining about artists who aren't here. I've been with emusic for a long time and have found a lot of great music here. Some of it I had never heard of. How freakin cool is that?! That said, I still have this particular album saved for later. :P

Some of the Worst Covers Of Some of the Best Songs


Yes, it's true. My Chemical Romance has no business covering the Misfits. Whoever the hell Emanuel and Saves the Day are have no business covering the Stooges or the Dead Boys. The notes are the same, but all the life is strangled out of these songs by these skate punk poseurs. Blech.

oh jeez...


ya'll just need to shut up. Ever played the game? The music goes great with it. These are some cool tracks, even though I'm more of a metal person. The Alkaline Trio song is super tight.

Sorry, but I'm afraid you people just don't get it. This is not the place to find your typical, everyday mainstream that so many people drool over for whatever inconceivable reason. This is the place to try new things, to expand your horizons beyond the borders of the American musical industry. Yes, some of the music on this site is rather...mediocre, but there are still people out there who enjoy it. In short, if you don't like it, what in the nine hells are you doing listening to it? Note: If I'm wrong about anything at all, please correct me. Unless, of course, your "correction" is purely your own negative opinion on what I said. In which case, shut up before you even start. I /don't/ want to hear it.

Some negative comments are redundant and boring


Not all of these comments have entertainment value. It would be more humorous if a negative comment contained a complete thought. "eMusic sxxks". What does that mean? Can you tell us why? Example: "eMusic sxxks because I have a pimple on my rear end and it hurts". This is a complete thought.

They Say All Music Guide

Skateboard culture took hold of California in the late ’70s and early ’80s, where kids in cities like Santa Monica and Los Angeles defined freestyle skating from the ground up. Of course, at the time, music was just exciting. Punk rock was fragmenting, and bands like Black Flag on the West Coast and Minor Threat in the East were forging the new rhythms of hardcore. It’s that sound Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland taps for its soundtrack. But instead of putting together the usual comp of classic punk and hardcore, contemporary bands have been asked to contribute covers. Naturally the results vary. But for the most part it’s a solid set, both for fans of the original songs and the current bands covering them. Buddy Nielsen really nails Mike Muir’s apathetic teen intonation on Senses Fail’s version of “Institutionalized,” “All I wanted was a Pepsi! And she wouldn’t give it to me!” My Chemical Romance are a predictable choice for the Misfits’ “Astro Zombies,” while Dropkick Murphys muscle ably through the Adolescents’ “Who Is Who.” Most if not all of the contributors are entirely faithful to their source material — Thrice even go so far as to distort and treble-ize everything in their medley of Minor Threat’s “Seeing Red/Screaming at a Wall,” just to nail that D.C. 1981 feel. It’s also nice to see bands like T.S.O.L., Government Issue, and Gorilla Biscuits get exposure alongside the usual entries from the Stooges and Descendents. (Hot Snakes, in particular, do a great job with GI’s “Time to Escape.”) Rise Against, who already covered “Nervous Breakdown” for Lords of Dogtown, must be the official stand-ins for Black Flag when it comes to skateboarding and the history of U.S. punk music: they end Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland with all 54 sneering seconds of Flag’s “Fix Me.” – Johnny Loftus
