    The WC Juke Box

    What are you listening to right now? Much like the old “Currently Listening” thread, that’s the point of this thread.

    Name of the song and the artist (album name optional). No videos, but a link to Music Videos or YouTube is fine. Give us a description of the song and what it’s about or the band and what you like about them. What’s your favourite lyric, what sticks in your head? Rate it if you like, and tell us who would like it, or what we make like if we enjoy that song.

    Be creative and give us more than just the song and the band. Educate and inform. Discovering new music is the best thing in the world, this thread is to aid that process. Also, feel free to offer opinions and suggestions to others based on their posts. This is for discussion as well as suggestion.

    Here's a couple of example posts, the second is the bare minimum for a post in this thread:


    “Choking Victim” – Fear And The Nervous System


    It’s a “supergroup” made up of members of Korn, Faith No More, Bad Religion and more. It sounds very much like “Issues” era Korn with much of the shine scrapped off.

    “Did we take these pennies for silver”



    6/10

    For fans of: Korn, Faith No More, Repeater, Bad Religion, Io Echo

    ------------------------------------

    "Ultraviolet" - The Stiff Dylans

    A group formed specifically for the film, "Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging" based on a book Rennison. It's a proper teen-chick-flick, but the soundtrack is all sorts of fun and I seriously wish TSD had stuck it out after the movie and released an album!!

    For fans of: Fall Out Boy, A, The Automatic, pop-punk

    The Quiet Place
    In Flames

    They're a nice Swedish death metal band. It's off their 2004 album "Sountrack To Your Escape" which I find to be their best album. If you were trying to get into this band it'd be a good place to start. It got 4 of 5 stars from Allmusic.

    For fans of: At The Gates, Trivium, and DevilDriver

    the song itself is a solid 7.5/10

    What I've heard of In Flames is stunning stuff. Would "Soundtrack To Your Escape" be the best place to start with them or is there a better album to start with?

    Like how "The Colour And The Shape" is the Foo's most critically acclaimed but "In Your Honor" is the perfect starter kit.

    It definitely is. It's their seventh album but it is the culmination of all the different properties they incorporated into their past albums, bundled into one. Plus it's their most commercially successful and critically acclaimed.

    They're a supergroup consisting of Pantera's Phil Anselmo, Corrosion of Conformity's Pepper Keenan, Crowbar's Kirk Windstein and Patrick Bruders and Eyehategod's Jimmy Bower. The lineup also used to include Rex Brown of Pantera fame.

    I'd give it a 9/10.

    Open Your Eyes - Alter Bridge

    They're a group made of former Creed members, Mark, Brian & Scott. Their songs alternate between Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, and most people know them because Former WWE Superstar Edge's enterance theme is one of their biggest songs. I like them because they aren't your normal Hard Rock/Heavy Metal group, they have many heartfelt songs.

    "When they open their eyes, and realise we are one"

    8/10

    For fans of: AC/DC, Guns 'N' Roses, Led Zeppelin

    "To Where the Skies Are Blue" - Deadlock

    Deadlock is a melodic death metal band fronted by harsh vocalist Johannes Prem and clean vocalist Sabine Weniger.This is the last song off their "Wolves" album, and it's very different from the rest of the songs, as it's essentially a place for Sabine to show her pipes. This girl is an amazing singer and adds something that isn't often seen in metal.

    ​"And still the hardest things to say are the words that mean the most."

    I'd say for fans of: Arch Enemy, Dethklok

    Fire In The Pouring Rain (click)
    Bad City

    Fucking vintage. these guys are like in their early 20's I believe but they embody 80's hair metal, and fuse in some modern elements to make them sound sick. This song is a great anthem. Like a Journey ballad really, which just plays on their strengths cause they sound great when they're singing from their hearts (which they usually do).

    "I spent all my money buying love for you, but uh, now you're trying to sell it.. who knew..."

    For fans of: Motley Crue, Poison, Bad Company, and Alter Bridge

    "Morning Routine" - Rolfe Kent

    It's the theme to the TV show, Dexter. I've heard it five times so far today, and I intend on hearing it twice more to finish Season 5 tonight in order to lend it to my friend who is also a big time Dexter fan. Unlike the other shows I watch in bulk (Family Guy, American Dad, The Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad to a lesser extent) I never skip the title sequence. Partially because the visuals themselves are so utterly captivating, but mostly because no matter how many times I hear it, it's still fresh and new and feels like waking up.

    For fans of: Dexter, classical, film and TV scores, latin influenced music.

    "Do My Do" by Kid Cudi & Mickey Factz

    Pretty good song by Cudi and if you're a fan of him then you'll probably enjoy the song too. Actually only my second or third time hearing the song.

    Recommended for any Cudi fan.

    Gorillaz-The Fall

    Seriously one of my favorite musical projects ever. Damon Albarn is a freakin' genius. I love that he took time to write songs while performing on tour to promote the last album, only to release those songs later as an album itself. Everything is a lot more electronic, instrumental, and more chill than usual. Some of the songs are also more off beat and random than his previous work.

    "Eulogy" by Frank Turner

    I talk about Frank a lot, and that's because he's recently taken over Counting Crows, Metallica, Foo Fighters and a whole host of others in my Top Ten to become my very favourite artists on this planet. I adore him and this track, the opener to his most recent album; "England Keep My Bones" is a short but beautiful burst of brilliance. I'm actually listening to the whole album and have listened to "Peggy Sang The Blues" and "I Still Believe" (which is playing right now) while I logged onto dubC and typred this.

    "At least I ****ing tried"

    Re: The WC Juke Box


    Don't really know what to add since I can't say I know much about them yet. It is the result of what I constantly do on iTunes. Start with an album from a group I like and then start going through the what other people who bought this have bought albums or albums of those albums. Then take chances on the blind buys unless I really hate the sound of the preview clips. In this case the starting point was Paramore. Versaemerge, Hey Monday, Automatic Loveletter, Kenotia, My Arcadia, One Star Story, Renfue, Stellate & She Screams Remedy were the previous result of the Paramore path. Also tipped me off to new The Material and Flyleaf releases but knew of both of them from Rock Band. Darling Parade also joined the Paramore path list with Blameshift. Best way to discover new music IMO

    The Thundercats Theme

    Composed by Bernard Hoffer and James Lipton, I've not paid enough attention to the credits to figure out who performed it and Google has failed me in finding out. Even a quick scan of Wiki came up short. It was probably just session musicians and the composers, but it's still bugging me. I've been watching Thundercats Season 1 all day, while I'm home from work, sick. Fun times.

    "Thundercats are loose!"

    Chiddy Bang -- Opposite of Adults (KIDS)

    Chiddy Bang is an american hip hop duo from Philly, very much a college educated hip hop artist and he stays away from gangster type content. This song is no different, beat is a sample of MGMT's Kids and it's pretty sick. Only problem with lots of Chiddy's songs is that they are too focused on the present in terms of lyrical content. He talks about that I love College song by Roth when by now everyone has forgotten about that song. But it's a solid song that keeps your attention the whole way through with some nice rhymes and a sick beat.

    7.5/10

    If you like Lupe's older stuff or the Kanye stuff that isn't super serious/religious (think Good Life or Gold Digger) you'll like this.

    The Answer
    Floorpunch
    Fast Times At The Jersey ShoreI'd give this song an 8/10. Floorpunch is a fantastic Straight Edge hardcore band. All their music is fast and actually has a positive message, which is something I enjoy out of every Straight Edge hardcore band.

    We Fly High (Giants Remix)
    Jim Jones

    Much like the original version of the song "We Fly High", was made during the Super Bowl that the Giants won in 2008. Although I am not a Giants fan it is still a good song to listen to for any Hip Hop fan.
