'Twas impossible to turn these songs off during Summer, 2010

These songs are great, and were practically irresistible to the notion of turning them off once they were playing.  A short list, not a ranking of any sort, but packed full of great tunes; check em' out!

  1. Ninjasonik - Somebody Gona Get Pregnant (it's currently my ringtone)
  2. Dead to Me - Little Brother
  3. Dawn Penn - You Don't Love Me
  4. Ratatat - Lex
  5. Bad Religion - Won't Somebody (live) (will be reviewing their new album The Dissent of Man)
  6. Japanther - Radical Businessman (f. Spank Rock)
  7. Against Me! - Mediocrity Gets You Pears (The Shaker)
  8. Jawbox - Savory
  9. Kid Cudi - Man On The Moon (The Anthem)
  10. Spank Rock - Loose
  11. Bad Brains - Leaving Babylon
  12. Land of Talk - It's Okay
  13. Pixies - Gigantic

  28. Dirty Heads - Lonely One
  29. Matt & Kim - Good Ol' Fashioned Nightmare
  30. Mos Dub - Johnny Too Bad (THIS ALBUM IS FREE TO DOWNLOAD--GET IT!)
  31. Common - Make My Day
  32. Frank Turner - Photosynthesis
  33. Ballyhoo! - Paperdolls
  34. Deftones - CMND/CTRL
  35. Swingin' Utters - No Eager Men
  36. Best Coast - When I'm With You
  37. The Replacements - Bastards of Young
  38. Sublime - Same in the End
  39. Drive Like Jehu - Spikes To You
  40. Kid Cudi, Bethany (Best Coast), Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend) - All Summer (THIS SONG IS FREE VIA CONVERSE)  
So, maybe it wasn't the shortest list ever made, but all of these songs are so worth checking out.  Really, if you don't know many of these tunes, you don't have any excuse to say you're not curious: You're at the end of the list, and most likely read all the way here.  If you haven't read all the way to here, that's okay, but you DO have plenty of ways to check out these songs. 

Some prime examples are your local record store, Emusic, Itunes, GrooveShark, Pandora, Youtube, and any other streaming music source.  Of course, you always have torrents, Media Fire, and some blogs of which you can....acquire via means of  possible substantial risk(RIAA, trojans, viruses, etc.)

As a nice treat, I've posted the video for Kid Cudi, Bethany (Best Coast), Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend) - All Summer The video is really creative, and though I have fallen behind with watching music videos in the last 5 years, nobody has shown me any video just like this one.  Enjoy:
