Who's listening to what.

Jon Burr – Singer/guitarist for local band The Antithesis and self-described Internerd.

Five songs that rock the socks right off my feet these days:

1 . I Want the Moon — Leatherface

"The power of Frankie Stubbs raw gritty vocals belting from his smoke-damaged vocal chords in unison with Leatherface’s signature thick, raucous guitars... awesome."

2 . Turbonegro Must Be Destroyed — Turbonegro

"Just one of the ultra catchy rocked-out punk rock songs by the boys from Norway."

3. For the Stab Wounds In Our Backs — Amon Amarth

"I'm hooked on Scandinavian metal songs about Vikings and Norse mythology – conjures images of epic battles by employing the ultra-evil powers of rock."

4. Solitary Man — Johnny Cash

"Johnny Cash is amazing. Don't feel the need to explain why."

5. Clayman — In Flames

"Slick Swedish power metal. The perfect combination of melody, musical complexity and genuine intensity for me."

Last words...

"I have to go to practice or the boys are going to be choked."
