Once a generation, a group of artists appears to define the spirit of their time. With regards to American popular music, there was one group that stood out from the pack, able to deliver songs both catchy and deep, and one that created a whole new sound. But until the lawsuit is settled, our Limp Bizkit retrospective will have to wait. In the meantime, here's Episode 26, dedicated to some forgettable band from California.

I Get Around
Surfin' U.S.A.

EPISODE 24, kinda


While we strive to provide you with high-quality drivel here at ASR, there are moments where our synapses forget to fire. Whilst we rid ourselves of some mental gremlins and gear up for an exciting, fresh episode twenty-five, we present what we've dubbed our "Emergency Episode". This was done awhile ago, and consists mainly of Tyler trying to sound cool in the absence of a co-host, but hopefully it will keep at bay those of you desperate for your dose of weekly radio podcast. Cheers.

The Roots - The Seed
Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings - I Just Dropped In to See What Condition My Condition Was In
Irma Thomas - Breakaway
Barenaked Ladies - Lovers in Dangerous Times
The King's Singers - Can't Buy Me Love
Aaron Copland - Fanfare for the Common Man
Tears for Fears - Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Want to Have Fun
Feist - One Evening
