#1 this week on Billboard's Rock chart is The Black Keys "Tighten Up". I actually like this one, however commercial it may be. I've had it on my phone for a few weeks now, and listen to it at work. Not my usual style of music, but it has a certain flow and bluesy sound that I tend to gravitate towards. I probably will never download another song by this band...but I'll enjoy this one for now.
Onto a band that has a etched a permanent mark on me...My Chemical Romance. I know, I'm such an "emo" kid or whatever term you are affectionately calling fans of MCR these days. Honestly, there is very little these guys do that I don't love...even when I try not to like it at all! I give you...."Sing" Oh, and tell me Gerard Way doesn't have amazing vocal talent and I will straight up punch you in the face! :D
Now that I've given you my "rock" songs this week...let's change it up a bit. My pal Mister_Bones posted a video for Kanye West's "Monster" and I've not been able to stop watching it since. Instead of playing copy cat, you can take a trip to his blog and see the video here. This song is so packed with artists that I enjoy, it can't possibly be bad! Rick Ross, Jay-Z, and Nicki Manaj....just greatness. The video is what takes it to another level for me. As those of you that follow this blog know, I love horror and this delves into some things I'm sure they will never show on MTV.
So that's it for this installment of Heads up...New Music. Until next time!
