Thursday Thirteen: MUSIC

So today I figured I would post 13 videos that in some way are near and dear to my heart. Some of them wont have any explanation, and if you get the ghist of the reason, then I commend you. Today's Thursday Thirteen is actually a contest. If you can figure out what all of the videos that have no explanation have in COMMON, *Hint: think location*, then you will win a print copy, choice, of one of the Stella and Audra Price books. That's right. And since I'm leaving for Scotland soon, I'll bring said book with me, and have Audra write a little ditty inside. Answers can be sent to, but of course, I would love some normal comments.

Enjoy the music, These bands are fantastic.

*my rock career...*

Tainted Love by Marilyn Manson. Why? Because two of my favorite actresses are in it: Mia Kirshner and Chyler Leigh. Mia= Astrid and Chyler= Spinner from the Eververse series.

Letters To You by Finch

Worked Up So Sexual by The Faint. I LOVE this band. they are my 100% favorite. Remember this band, they are fantastic dance music!

Faded by Soul Decision. When I used to tour, one of the other girls and I, when we got stuck driving a different car, We rocked this jam, and the song I Got a Man by Positive K. Such silliness.

Analog Boy by The RX Bandits

All My Friends are Metal Heads by Less then Jake. I have seen LTJ over 100 times from when I was 16-21. They put on a HELLA live show. Oh, and they like Pez. WORD.

Blue Monday, Cover, by Orgy. Oh lords, Dont get me wrong, I love the original, but this is what I used to dance at the goth clubs to when i was in college.

Just One Fix by Ministry. I Love Ministry. TOTALLY.

NO Time by The Assorted Jellybeans

Here We Go Again by Shelter. This was THE music with my friends while I was in highschool. My boyfriend then LOVED Shelter, so much so that we hungout at the Krishna Eateries GOVINDA'S in three cities following Shelter on tour one summer.

Beating Heart Baby by Head Automatica. This is the "Dancy" side of the Lead singer of GlassJaw. Great Album, and SO much fun to dance to.

Closer by Nine Inch Nails. I have seen NIN over 60 times since I was 16. While this isnt my favorite song, its the best looking video YouTube had to offer. And come on, who doesnt want to hear Trent Reznor tell them He wants to fuck them like an animal? HONESTLY. they guy is hot.... Seriously.

Big Casino by Jimmy Eat World. Its a newer song, but I couldnt find my favorite song on Video, but really JEW is fantastic. Total anthems for Under 30 life in the creative industries. Do yourself a favor, Listen to Jimmy Eat World. I have seen them over 20 times.

I love lists of music! Thanks for sharing.

Adelle said...

We have VERY different tastes in music LOL Fun list though. Have a fabulous time across the pond. Happy T13!

Robin said...

I have to admit that Marilyn Manson really creeps me out. He's always been a bit too realistic a zombie for my taste.

Ms Menozzi said...

Heh. I'm with you on NIN...


Happy TT!


Nina Pierce said...

I'm all about puzzle challenges, but umm ... I haven't any idea. Thanks for sharing the videos!

CrystalGB said...

What a cool list. :)

Byrning Bunny said...

I don't have any idea, but I love your list of vids.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Hey, good stuff on here! Hang around with me, I'll convert you to the darker side...

Stella Price said...

LOL Susan!

I just checked your profile and I gotta say wow. I dont really listen to the mainstream music, though there are exceptions like NIN. The Marilyn Manson song i actually like cuz its a cover, and my girls are in it. LOL. But If im going to go for some heavy dark side kinda stuff, Im listening to All Out War, Inner Dam, Turmoil, GlassJaw, Fear Before the March of Flames, Waterdown, Madball.... the list goes on and on...

And thanks everyone for popping in for a lookie loo... I know most of you guys dont listen to this kinda stuff, hell Im pretty diverse, but its always nice to find new good music thats not shoved down your throat every hour on the radio or on TV.


Open Grove Claudia said...

Gosh, some of these songs I've never heard of! That's unusual because I like so much of this music. I do love the new NIN - and how cool that they just gave it away.

Happy TT! :)

Alice Audrey said...

I am so out of it. I don't recognize any of these guys.

marcia said...

not my style but it is good to be passionate about music

One and the Same... said...

I recognized two names. I'm officially old.

December said...

Tasty list - thanks!!

Tink said...

I don't even know most of them, but I tried some. I'm afraid our tastes are very different, no offense. :-)
Thanks for visiting my deity TT.

Gina Ardito said...

What a great list! Lots of stuff to bang your head to here.

Savannah Chase said...

omg Soul Decision, I have not heard their stuff in years...Brings back memories

Shelley Munro said...

Ok, I have no idea. I don't know quite a few of these. :)
Have fun in Scotland. It's one of my favorite destinations.

shaunesay said...

some bands I've never heard of, but I do like NIN, and while I don't really like looking at Marilyn, I do like some of the music! lol! always neat to get recommendations!

And I like pez too! I'm still regretting not getting the armored polar bear ones from Golden Compass.

Happy TT!

Michelle said...

Great musical flashback. I really enjoyed Tainted Love, Blue Monday & Closer...Just One Fix by Ministry really brought back memories of college when I used to listen to them & Skinny Puppy when I was in the mood. Some of the videos were really off the wall but hey who wants normal that is just boring.

Dana Belfry said...

Nice list!

Winter said...

Love Ministry. NIN is okay and so if JEW. Manson. Grrrr. Can't stand him, but there's a story in the reason why that has to do with's Karnival One concert, Marilyn and his band, and Poison on the stairs.

I listen to everything I think. Cept Rap and country. I'm mostly a die hard metal head tho. Just give me some Nevermore and I'm good. ;) Great TT, Stella, and thanks for coming by mine!

Heather said...

Can't say I've heard any of these, but then - not really my type of music. Hope you have a great weekend!
