KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas: SOLD OUT. Win floor tickets to both nights next week

Let’s Make A Playlist Together!

Sometimes there is so much music out there and different sources to discover music, that I fear some things slip through the crack.

Luckily, I have a pretty good system for making sure I don’t miss anything. KROQ, Local’s Only, Spotify, blogs…you know, the essentials.

So, I started a playlist for January 2012. Some old, some new, some in between. However, while I was crafting this playlist, I realized I wanted to collaborate with my friends and KROQ listeners and see if together, we can blow the roof off of other playlists.

I think we can.

So, here are some of my songs, and I would love it if you can throw in some of yours and that way, together, we rock out all the while spreading the joy of music all over this biatch.

Let’s go!

Like I said, these are just songs that I have been listening to lately. Some of them just floated my way at the right time and some of them have been around for a hot minute, yet something about them works for me in this very moment. Some, are merely on a test run.

Please add like 2 or 3 of your own that my ears can chew on for a bit.

CLICK ON THE SONG TITLE TO LISTEN.

What I need is more rock. Like the kind with balls. The kind that offends mothers and get’s your blood boiling.

I am very excited to see what you all post!

Thanks guys!

    I remember when KROQ used to play a variety of music like those songs on Nicole’s playlist. (Sigh.)

    I really like “It’s Complicated” by A Day To Remember. Also, Volbeat has a new album that’s pretty good.

    1. Thank you dear Frankie!!!!

  2. I got your rock for ya.

    I first suggest you look to the two biggest reunions at Coachella. At The Drive-In and REFUSED. Let’s go with the tracks “Arcarsenal” and “New Noise” respectfully.

    From there, I suggest we go back to the 90’s for some serious post hardcore/fuzz rock. I am talking the 1-2-3 punch of Failure, Hum and Jawbox. Let’s go with “Leo”, “Suicide Machine” and “Savory”

    Oh and throw on anything by Mastodon and wrap up this brief mix with something from the Deftones last record. Perhaps “Have You Seen The Butcher”?

    1. Yo Rev ! GREAT stuff. We are on the same rock with balls page. I got ll these on lock down. Let’s make it our mission to find songs like THAT today. Newer stuff. Where is the great rock? Dammit let us find it! Aaaaaaaaaaand go!
      XOXO

      1. But that is the problem – we don’t have stuff like that today. Sadly most of that stuff has been watered down with Hot Topic piercings and insta-sleeve bands who I won’t bother to name. Granted they are not “new” but how about some Every Time I Die or Between The Buried and Me?

      2. Blackout | KROQ.com says:

        YES!

    Hyena Motorcade (www.facebook.com/hyenamotorcade)

    Openers (direct support) for Bow Wow Wow at the Coach House this Saturday night.

    Here is the newest single, “Heartbreaks” from Spotify

    Hyena Motorcade is often compared to Psychedelic Furs. John Ashton of the Psychedelic Furs is currently in talks with the band to possibly produce their debut full length CD release in 2012

  4. call it what you want by foster the people, not your fault awolnation, if I had a gun – noel gallagher & the high flying birds

    Billy Talent- “Line and Sinker”

    Trice- “Deadbolt”

    AFI- “The Leaving Song, Pt. 2”

  8. Jason says:

    As Tall As Lions: “In Case of Rapture” off the album “You Can’t Take it With You.” I know this song is from 2009 but if you didn’t hear it then, now is as good a time as any.

    The Dear Hunter “Tripping in Triplets” from the “Blue EP” as part of their full release “The Color Spectrum” from 2011.

    Tune-Yards “Bizness” off their release “WHOKILL” from 2011. This is the most interesting song and one of the best albums I have ever heard.

  9. L.E.Sideburns says:

  18. Acoustic_XMAS says:

    This playlist is such an awesome idea! I’ve been really into music to unknown bands recently. I especially like Sleeping with Sirens, “Into the Sun” by Parlor Mob, Crash Kings, Bad Rabbits, and two Australian bands– Critics (especially “Wither and Die (I Hope it Eats You Alive)”) and the very Paramore-esque band Tonight Alive. I’m also shocked that the new Neon Trees song “Everybody Talks” isn’t getting more attention…

  19. Bret Leduc says:

    How about The Templars – Another Rebel

  20. Guadanolo says:

    Sia- “Breathe Me”

    We Were Promised Jetpacks- “Quiet Little Voices” or “Through The Dirt And The Gravel”

    Refused-The deadly Rhythm
    Frank Turner( if any one deserves to have his songs on the radio, it’s this guy)-long live the queen, (and a personal fave that’s just a awesome sing along) If ever i stray
