What rock song really gets your blood pumping, makes you crank the stereo up every time you hear it? Maybe a top 5?

Runners up:
You Got Nothing I want - Cold Chisel
Take a Long Line - The Angels
Wanted Dead Or Alive - Bon Jovi (tho it starts slow)
Money for Nothing - Dire Straits

But the winner would have to be:
Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue

This list subject to change depending on mood, and deliberately choosing only one song per band but:

Honourable current listening favourites mention - Je Suis Un Baseball Bat - Ipanema

5. Mistakes and Regrets - And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead
4. One Armed Scissor - At the Drive-In
3. Going Nowhere - Therapy?
2. Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

Winner:

1. Killing in the Name - Rage Against The Machine

Eklektikos

My current #1 adrenaline producer is Agoraphobic Nosebleed's Opening To Personals Ad By Richard Johnson. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your point of view) it's only 14 seconds long, but it's quite the wake-up call...

2. Converge - Homewrecker
3. The Jesus Lizard - Killer McHann
4. The Melvins - Revolve
5. Therapy? - Knives

Same disclaimers as apply to Funko's list.

Funko

Interesting that you picked Knives, that Therapy? album is littered with songs like that. :)

Eklektikos
19-05-2005, 14:59:51
Yeah, took me a minute or two to decide which of them to include. Silly really, considering that I could easily have picked any one at random and it would probably have been just as deserving.

Mr. Bas
19-05-2005, 15:13:15
Interestingly, my list contains some of the bands mentioned before by Mike and Eklektikos...

1. ...And you will know us by the trail of dead - Ounce of prevention
2. Husker Du - I'll never forget you (works especially great if you include the tracks before and after, from Beyond the threshold up to The biggest lie)
3. Dead Kennedys - Well paid scientist
4. Therapy? - Trigger inside
5. Slayer - Raining blood

MoSe
19-05-2005, 15:39:54
ummmm....
I don't think I ever heard any of the above, except Money for Nothing

For me it would be
Don't stop me now - Queen
Rock'n'Roll - Led Zeppelin

YMCA - The Village People
Blobby - Mr Blobby

5- The Young Gods- "TV Sky"
4- Motorhead- "Ace of Spades"

1- Killing Joke- "Psyche"

It's great that this thread has got three different people posting different songs by Therapy? from Troublegum!

What an album. :beer:

My Bloody Valentine- "You made me realise"

If we're including punk rock then "White Riot" by the Clash does it for me every time.

Burn baby Burn - Ash
Urban Guerilla - Mudhoney

Pure rock, maybe You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC is pretty energetic.

Immortal Wombat
19-05-2005, 17:47:47
In no particular order...
Dry Kill Logic - Rot
Linkin Park - Papercut
Dropkick Murpheys - Fighting 69th
Rhapsody - Dawn of Victory
Queens of the Stone Age - A Song for the Dead

I think. But I haven't heard Troublegum :(

If Husker Du had recorded their songs nowadays, with modern production values and aesthetics beefing up their sound, I swear they'd totally dominate this list. They were one of the biggest influences on Therapy? for starters. As it is, their sound is too trebly and thin to win over the kids these days.

Rock 'n' Roll by Led Zep ain't bad. Kashmir actually really gets me involved, but not in an adrenaline pumping type of way.

For Queen, We are the Champions, or one of my Faves, Princes of the Universe.

I also haven't heard of most of the above bands. :clueless:

Yeah, it is a shame. I only have one Husker Du record, Candy Apple Grey (I got something by them on your recommendation from here or a LWP I think) and it's got good songs but the production totally takes all the balls out of it.

I completely agree... Some of their earlier stuff is still very, very energetic as it is though, from the early hardcore songs like In a free land, MIC or Afraid of being wrong up to tracks like New day rising or Divide and conquer. They're a brilliant band anyway, and the way some of their albums have been recorded is really a shame.

Mike, I really suggest that you check out Zen Arcade, it's a totally brilliant album which is in general produced better as well (even though most is first-take). CAG is probably the weakest and worst-recorded album of the lot, and even then it's still good.

Funko

Ok. I will.

I think I got Candy Apple Grey 'cause it was very cheap. :)

I also agree. I make a point of playing choice Hüsker Dü tracks to anyone I know who likes the current crop of punk-pop bands and rarely get anything other than a very positive reaction. The few negative comments tend do tend to be about the thinness of the sound.

Ah Rattamahatta! Great tune....I haven't heard it for a while though.

I would add Nomad & Propaganda to that list.

New System of a Down song gets me going, but so does Pogo.

actually I could name about 2000 rock songs that get my adrenaline going, but I'll narrow it down to one.

The problem with Smashing Pumpkins is that you get Billy Corgan's appalling, horrible vocals.

you can diss their last album though. They pussied out like all bands do, and lost their edge.

I can't watch him sing. I keep expecting him to put a lightbulb in his mouth and make it light up, or for Thing to start helping him play the guitar.


Billy Corgan:

Killing in the name of - Rage against the Machine at number 1, for sure.

Hammer to Fall - Queen
Zero Signal - Fear Factory
Stinkfist - Tool

And for some reason 'Push It' - Garbage occurs to me as well. Not *quite* adrenaline pumping, but it'll do for an answer here. =)

Yep, agreed. I kinda wish it wasn't such a problem. I know lots of people have the same problem with Morrissey/Smiths records and I think they seriously miss out.
