The 30 Day Song Challenge: Day 11 – A Song By Your Favorite Band

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=190568"> When I was fourteen, my main hobby was obsessively raiding the used CD store. Countless afternoons and allowances were spent devouring every album I'd ever seen on anyone's list of Hip-Hop classics and my attention rarely diverted to other genres. But in the midst of all the rhymes and beats, I did manage to stumble across a group that still stands as my favorite band of all-time: The Doors. I’d heard "Light My Fire" and "Riders On The Storm" on the oldies station in my parents' Dodge Caravan. But it was when I picked up The Doors In Concert on a whim that I was exposed to a whole new world. Starring possibly the most interesting vocalist in the history of recorded music, the double disc exhibits the foursome’s versatility and musicianship over two and a half bizarre hours. In Concert ranges from blues and straight ahead rock-n-roll to spoken word poetry and <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHfFlQY5FSk&playnext=1&list=PL9698AE464F26422F">indescribably weird tunes</a> with Jim’s one of a kind lyricism tying it all together.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/06/das-rasict-combination-pizza-hut-and-taco-bell-wallpaper-remix">Words by C. Paicely Even as the Brooklyn-based duo gets all snug and comfy in their Kafkaesque blankets, it seems they constantly have to remind us what’s behind all their apparent tomfoolery. These dudes are uncanny at taking a sick beat and using it in a way no one else ever would. Take "People Are Strange" for example. The way they holler "strange" throughout the track is almost as annoying as the old school Budweiser commercials with the "Wassup" guys, but somehow it works. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/das-racist">DR</a> uses the reoccurring theme of an ever-changing world to show how ugly we really are, calling people "savages, animals, scavengers.
