Some songs that pump me up are Dracula From Houston by Butthole Surfers, Dreamers by Them Terribles, and Neighborhood by Dirty Heads. It might just remind me of surfing because Dracula is in Step Into Liqui, Dreamers is the theme song for Bustin' Down The Door, and Neighborhood is in Freakside with JOB.
I just downloaded a Surfer Blood song about a week ago. Its called "Swim". They seem pretty cool, not a future R&R Hall of Fame band, but something new to add to the library.
Someone mentioned Rx Bandits...I've really gotten into the band Sound of Animals Fighting which I think has a few members of the Rx Bandits in it.. Its pretty progressive/obsure music, but there is some heavy/rockin' songs in there.
New Metallica (well almost 2 years old) "My Apocalypse" gets me pretty pumped up!
So, my Fiance just got back from Maryland like 2 days ago for a pre-wedding visit. Her little brother was playing a CD the whole time frmo a band called "PASADENA". They are from the Baltimore Area and have this crazy style.
They sound like Slightly Stupid, but from Baltimore. Real jammy kind of beach inspired tracks. Her kept refering to days down in Florida, but it was still really chill...
It was not all hippied out like all the socal Slightly Stoopids and Sublime etc.... Its that kind of music, with a much more rock, almost southern kinda feel to it. It is basically beach music with an urban/southern Maryland touch....
Youtube the band name or whatever you youngsters do to look up music =) Its pretty cool stuff.
