    My fave Smiths/Morrissey songs would be "How Soon is Now" and "Stop Me if You Think You've Heard This One Before".

    And I believe Blondie's "Rapture" was the first music video I ever saw.

    Husker Du was originally part of Black Flag's SST label. They had a decent following and after the signed to a major they got good critical reviews never had mainstream success. I can't remember the exact reasons for the band breaking up but I think a big part of it was drummer Grant Hart wanting more songwriting opportunities. Years after the band's demise and he had already established a solid solo career and 2nd band Sugar, singer Bob Mould came out as gay.

    Man, there is actually a whole lot to that band breaking up.

    I am not an expert on the Sparks. The really big songs I remember liking were "I Predict" and "Cool Places" ( with Jane from the Go Go's). I picked this video though because the dance the singer is doing was kinda the thing at the time and is actually proto-"The Carlton".

    My fourth favorite rock n roll film. It's a lot smarter than people give it credit for. More than just a satire on youth and pop music, it's also a satire on consumerism and the media in general.



    Unfortunately, Dan Decarlo ( the creator of Josie) got royally screwed.

    During the early 90's L7 was my favorite all girl band. Saw them at The Avalon, saw them at The Metro. Talked to them on the radio about how Suzie used to date the bass player from Black Flag.

    I actually have a very personal story to go with this song (actually, the entire album the song is from), but I'm not sharing it here.

    That album taught me about hairshirts.
    They became my favorite thing to talk about.
