Never Mind the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Just got back from a long Thanksgiving weekend. Had one of the best Thanksgivings in years. Saw just enough family, saw plenty of friends, and spent plenty of time loafing around with my wife.

The big news is the Sex Pistols are being inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Don’t exactly know what to think of this, seems a bit silly. I bet they won’t show up and I’m sure they won’t play. But I could be wrong.

If you do not own the Sex Pistols’ Never Mind the Bullocks, go out and buy it immediately. A great album that has not gotten stale after all these years.

But in the mean time, I’m going to listen to "Jonesy’s Jukebox" on Indie 103.1, featuring the hilarious Steve Jones of the aforementioned Sex Pistols. I think you can listen online. So do that too.

And, since it takes twenty-five years to be eligible for the Hall of Fame, I’m going to extend the iPod list to the last twenty-five songs. So there:

1. "Come Back D.A." by the Lemonheads
2. "Surprise Truck" by Camper Van Beethoven
3. "(What a) Wonderful World" by the Flaming Lips
4. "Casino Boogie" by the Rolling Stones
5. "Get On The Snake" by Soundgarden

10. "Ice Cold Ice" by Husker Du
11. "All Along the Watchtower" by Bob Dylan
12. "Lua" by Bright Eyes
13. "She Shook Me Cold" by David Bowie
14. "Call Me" by Blondie
15. "Christ for President" by Jeff Tweedy (Lounge Ax 12-20-99)
16. "The Headmaster Ritual" by the Smiths
