I don’t know if this counts as a throwback, since it only came out a few years ago, but heck, I’m going to go ahead and count it.  I love this band, their energy, that they’re playing hardcore punk.  I love them.  You should too.

Cerebral Ballzy: Don’t Tell Me What To Do

Daniel Johnston has a really sad story.  Actually, he has about fifteen albums full of really sad stories.  I love this song, though, because it’s a little happy sounding…for better or worse, I still like to listen on a sunny day.  I also love him because he’s been diagnosed with schizophrenia, and is still super important in the indie music scene.

He Is Legend was a band I never liked much; it seemed all the hipster emo kids at the radio station were waaaaay too into them, and heaven forbid I like something everyone else liked.  Plus, they were a bit whiny for my taste.  This song, however, found it’s way into my consciousness (likely on a hastily composed mixtape), and showed up on my Spotify recommendations a few weeks ago.  I figured I’d take the hint and listen again.
