Greetings friends! Its been a little bit since I've made a formal post on the website again, but I promise I actually have not forgotten about you. Quite the opposite, actually! With the tenth anniversary of Immortal Music only ten days away, I've actually been thinking quite a bit about this whole community I've created. I've wanted to do something big to celebrate, but I didn't know exactly what to do. But, some ideas came to mind, and if you've been on the Facebook page lately, you might see that I have once again created some products.
I say once again, because back in 2015, I created some T-shirts and bracelets, and ultimately they weren't extremely successful. We sold one T-shirt, gave a handful to some friends and family, and had a ton of fun throwing the bracelets around at concerts. I am proud to say that Hollywood Undead, Bring Me The Horizon, and I believe A Day To Remember all got bracelets, as well as many strangers just enjoying the shows. We ended up having a lot of fun with those, and now there are only a small handful that are still going strong.
Now this year, with quarantine and the pandemic going on, for some reason my creative juices began flowing again. I'm assuming it was due to the free time and being locked in our house without a job or anything to do for two months, but I started designing again. I started wanting to create again, which is something I actually haven't done in a long time.
I took to photoshop and ended up designing multiple different stickers, drew up a new t-shirt design and ended up creating new bracelets. Those, in my honest opinion are so much cooler than the original ones, I might add. Better quality as well, these ones are embossed and should not fade much, if at all. I also did get one design of the stickers made, and while they did not turn out how I wanted them to, they are good quality, very clear and vibrant. So, I decided to list them anyway, after talking to several of you guys. I also went ahead and listed the T-shirts again, sizes are limited and I will never make these again. If I'm being quite honest, I do not even like the design anymore. That being said, since listing them, I actually have sold two shirts, which I know doesn't sound like much, but trust me, it was a big deal. Thank you to the two people who did purchase them, you're so appreciated.
If anyone is interested in checking out what's for sale, click here. I am selling through Etsy, and am debating on doing a digital release for all the other sticker designs. They're all pride themed, and when I discussed them, people seemed rather interested. But such things are not cheap to make, and while I wanted to do made to order, it appears I will have to charge more in order to even break even. That didn't feel completely worth it just yet. I had the idea though I could release them as a digital art that could be used as a print out, a wallpaper for your computer, or whatever else you wanted. I'd really like to hear your thoughts on that matter.
For what its worth, I have created pride flags with a twist for all of the following identities:
Gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, trans, genderfluid, genderqueer, demisexual, asexual, and non-binary. Again, if you are interested, please let me know and I will figure out something from there.
That was the main thing I wanted to talk about, but also wanted to just quickly promote all of the social medias. Facebook being our main one, then Instagram which is a lot of things actually. Its my personal Instagram, but its full of photography, my Funko Pop collection, and just whatever I want really. We also have a brand new Discord, which is only one month old at this point in time, and is still very small. Come to find out it is invite only, and every invite link is temporary, so if you're interested in joining, please message me, and I will send you an invitation. I am not extremely active on it but that's okay, its for everyone to chat and just hang out, it doesn't necessarily have to involve me at all times.
Also have a YouTube channel, though I am not active on it currently and at this moment, do not have intentions to do anything with it. Still worth mentioning, as it has all my interviews, a lot of vlogs, and just some random fun stuff I've made over the years.
That about covers it! Thank you so much for being here and being supportive and I will talk to you guys very soon.
I just realized I said I wanted to start a new series where I put together playlists weekly or almost weekly, and that was almost a month ago now. Oops. At least I was honest and said I didn't know if that would actually happen.
If I'm honest, not much has changed. I'm still listening to basically the same things I already was, and I'm still not playing as much music as I do out of quarantine. But life is slowly getting back to normal, slowly but surely anyway. And to keep up with what I said I was going to do, it only feels right to come up with a new playlist. Some of the songs are still the same, because as I've said on the page, I've had four songs on a loop in my head for probably two weeks now. There's no real reason for any of them, but they're still looping no less.
So, let's get into the quarantine playlist number 2.
1. Rise Above It -I Prevail
2. Popular Monster -Falling In Reverse
3. Monsters -All Time Low
4. Clumsy- All Time Low
5. The Lighthouse- The Used
6. Talk To A Friend -Slaves
7. Pretty Handsome Awkward -The Used
8. Lifelines -I Prevail
9. Tears Don't Fall -Bullet For My Valentine
10. Famous Last Words -My Chemical Romance
11. However You Want It Said -Beartooth
I was thinking I could actually put some thought into this and add some depth. Really dig into how I've been feeling and make a playlist of songs that reflect that, but for now I kind of just named some random songs. Maybe the next one I do will have some depth to it. Some are just what I thought of as I was putting this together, a bit like the last one, but others are songs that have been heavily stuck in my head. By the way, I said at the beginning of this post that there were four songs on a loop for absolutely no reason. Those songs are "Rise Above It", "Popular Monster", "Monsters", and "Talk to A Friend."
Well, and "Taste of Regret" from Of Mice And Men, which was not added into this playlist, just because I was trying to give some diversity. Some of the songs in this one were in the last one as well, so I couldn't be too similar.
I'm running out of things to say for this one. I hope you guys are all doing well. Life is slowly going back to normal here, and I am kind of conflicted about it. I'm beyond ready, because I miss work and friends, and just some sense or normality. But I also am a little afraid of getting sick or getting someone close to me sick. There's been a lot of conflicting thoughts on the matter, and I guess its just taking it one day at a time.
I'll talk to you guys soon. Thank you for being here, and please let me know what you're listening to or what's stuck in your head.
So, I just posted the results for the 2020 Immortal Music Awards, and with every other year, to go with the results, I shared my thoughts. I doubt anyone really cares about that, but I do it because I actually don't vote at all in the polls. I don't give any input ever, and some opinions do get formed while I monitor the polls and other activity. So I always have something to say and just feel like sharing it.
There's a good handful with this year's results that I was quite happy with, but there are a few things I would have chosen that didn't quite make the cut. Before I get into my thoughts, please click here and check out the final results for the Immortal Music Awards. Once you see all of the winners, anything I say will no longer be a spoiler, and will make a lot more sense.
Now that you've hopefully actually gone and looked at them, I can get into this. I first want to start off by saying I had absolutely nothing to do with the final outcome. I didn't even vote in any of the polls, despite how it might look. While these were in the suggestion stage, I had so many thoughts. First off, I was extremely happy to see how many suggestions were actually being provided. It was refreshing to see people actually participating, and kind of warmed my heart. Brought me back to before algorithms were basically a force-field against me. It was nice.
The second thing was, "Well this is going to look rigged." Because its no secret that I am a massive I Prevail fan. I make that pretty clear, especially with the fact that I think I've shared "Bow Down" basically every single day since its release on the page. So many people suggested them for various different categories, and with the amount of suggestions, I just knew they'd probably win. I promise I had nothing to do with it. Already had a friend picking on me about that,and I hope nobody actually thinks that.
That being said, while yes, I do agree that Trauma was hands down the best album to be released last year, and that the video for "Hurricane" is awesome, there is one thing I don't totally believe. They also won for the most underrated band of 2019, and at this point, I don't know if I'd call them underrated. Prior to Trauma being released, hell yes. I absolutely felt they were underrated, but not noq. Trauma has literally been nominated for a Grammy, so was "Bow Down." Underrated bands don't really get the attention of the Grammy's. I personally would have gone with Bury Tomorrow as the underrated band of 2019. I'm fairly new to them, but they're still relatively small and from what I've heard, they're absolutely wonderful.
I also fully expected Slipknot to completely dominate the awards. For most of the time the polls were up, they were on top. There was just a last minute spark that set other bands ahead of them. I have always seen a ton of love for Slipknot through the page, but especially lately for "Unsainted." That was a very interesting music video, and I solidly expected that to win for best music video. Slipknot did however win for the best live band, and I can understand that.
I actually have seen three of the four nominees live, with the only one I have not being As I Lay Dying, and they all were amazing. I think any of them were completely well deserved. However, the only one I saw live in 2019 was I Prevail, so I guess by default they won for me. Plus that show did something special to me, it was some time of tension release I desperately needed at the time. But that may have been more situational than band related, I don't know. In general though, I'd probably go with them or Bring Me The Horizon. I liked Slipknot live when I saw them in 2015, but I felt way more captivated by BMTH and I Prevail.
As for the best song of 2019, I do understand why "Where I Belong" won, as it is a very sweet song, and I love the fact that it was such a big collab between three bands. But personally, I think I'd go with "Popular Monster" by Falling In Reverse. If I'm honest, I hadn't heard it all the way through until earlier this year when I saw them live, but I really think that might be their best song ever. It somehow slipped through the cracks for me prior, I think I might have heard the intro, assumed it was just Ronnie rapping and turned it off. I admit I didn't give it a proper chance, but then they played it live back in February and it proceeded to embed itself into my head for the whole next month.
I don't really have that much more to say about all of it, but its tradition for me to give my feed back regarding the results so I decided to do it now. Please let me know your thoughts on the results, and if you did read the whole thing, be sure to send over some up and coming bands. I do have another semi small project in mine. Its just a way to hype up musicians that are not touring and still growing, and I thought it'd be fun. I know a lot of them, and personally really enjoy the local music scene. I absolutely love being part of it, and helping bands grow to the new levels. So send them over to the Facebook page, and be on the look out for that soon.
Over the last two weeks, we've been working on a project. I started taking suggestions for the best musicians for 2019, and last week, we took the votes on those suggestions. This was all for a pre-existing event that has been hosted by Immortal Music several times over the years called the Immortal Music Awards. Now, the 2020 version is massively different from any other version I've ever done in the past. That is due to the fact that the world is completely different, and this time, it was brought back as an opportunity to combat boredom for everyone.
In the past, it was an annual thing, done in the winter, typically between November -December, to recap the year. The first one dates back to 2011, the very beginning of Immortal Music. We did them every single year through 2016, then took a break. This is the first one since then, and since its just barely May, and 2020 has forced a lot of things to get postponed or canceled, all of this is based off of 2019. If anyone wants us to, if time permits and some sense of normalcy does come back to us this year, maybe we could do a second round of the awards this winter to recap 2020. Though I doubt anyone really wants to recap the hell fire that has so far been 2020.
With all that being said, I'm hopeful the suggestion and voting periods provided some source of entertainment for everyone out there. Thank you so much for your participation, it means a lot to me. We got so many wonderful suggestions, and it sincerely felt like you guys were having a lot of fun with it. The voting felt a little light. but we still got a good handful, so I think we can semi-accurately determine the winners for ten different categories.
Just to refresh your memory real quick, those categories are: Best Album, Best Song, Best Live Band, Best Music Video, Most Underrated Band, Best Vocalist, Best Unclean Vocals, Best Guitarist, Best Bassist, and last, but certainly not least, Best Drummer. We are going to go through them all in that order, and I just wish to remind you that these were all chosen by you guys! Every single nominee was suggested by someone who follows our Facebook page, and once again we thank you! Absolutely none of this was chosen by me, though if you would like to hear what I would have done, or my thoughts on the winners, please keep checking back, as I will be sharing my thoughts, as per tradition.
Now, I know you're all probably skimming this, or have flat out scrolled down to see the winners. So, let's get into it, shall we?
So there you have it! Those are the winners for the 2020 Immortal Music Awards, as chosen by you guys. What do you think? Are you happy with the winners? What would you have done differently, if it was all up to you? Let me know. I'll be posting my thoughts very soon.
Thank you again to everyone who provided suggestions and voted! A lot of suggestions were made that did not make it into the final running, but they all were much appreciated! If nothing else, I had fun seeing all the participation, and I hope you guys enjoyed taking part.
Speaking of the suggestions, before I go, I want to quickly bring up something. I had a lot of people suggesting underground, up and coming, growing bands as nominees. They obviously would not be popular enough to win awards that are basically a popularity contest, but they deserve their own spotlight. So if you know any growing bands that aren't quite touring yet, please send them our way. I want to give them the attention they deserve. Please send them to via private message through the Facebook page, with the band or artist's name, social media and an example of their work, if you have a link. If not, I'm sure I can find it through their social medias.
That's obviously going to be a project, but I wanted to quickly bring it up. I thought it was very sweet that several people were hyping up smaller musicians. Send them my way, and I'll speak to you guys very soon.
Last week, we reintroduced something we used to do every year here on Immortal Music. Every winter, we would do a set of awards based off of suggestions given by you guys! The suggestions then went into polls, and through that, we were able to determine true winners. We have not done a proper round of the immortal Music Awards since late 2016, until now! Obviously, it is not winter, and due to everything going on right now, we actually do not have a lot to work off of for 2020 just yet. So this particular set of awards is based off of releases and activity in 2019.
Over the last week, we asked you guys who your favorites were for ten different categories, and now they are all in their voting stages. These polls are going to be up and valid now through May 1, and we absolutely need your input in order to determine a winner. Once we do so, I'll post the winners, and hopefully give the chosen musicians the love and credit they deserve. There's a high chance that none of them will see these awards, but that's okay. The credit is still given where its due, and hey, its fun for all of us.
Please be sure to vote for your favorites for all of the polls below, and share with your friends. The more the merrier! To vote, please click on each category name. That will take you to a poll made special for this occasion. Votes cast through comments anywhere will not be counted!
Once again, the voting is on now through May 1, which is next Friday! Cast your votes now, spread it around. Tell your friends, tell your family, pick one out for your dog. The more the merrier!
I had a couple people express interest in me bringing back the Immortal Music Awards, which for those who don't know, was an annual thing I did every winter until 2016. It does not appear as though I have done a real one ever since, due to a lot of things. Mostly being discouragement and burn out due to algorithms fighting me, and just the hitting a creative wall. If I'm honest, I'm still a little bit hesitant to try this, as I'm not certain I'm really going to get a good amount of responses in order to do this properly. But, when two people who do not know each other express interest, and general responses on the page have been semi frequent lately, I'll give it a shot. We've all got nothing better to do at the moment, right? And maybe it'll open up some conversations that'll make everyone happy.
Due to it being only April, not the end of the year, the questions are going to be generalized, and regard 2019 for the most part. The year is still new, and with all the stuff going on with Covid-19 a lot of albums are being pushed back, tours and festivals are being completely canceled, ect. We just don't have enough to work with for 2020, so that's why this one is going to be a little bit different.
You guys can choose to answer the categories here, private message us on Facebook or answer on individual posts yet to come. Once some answers come in, I'll try to find a way to make a poll again, and we'll try to actually determine winners for each post. If that doesn't work, I'll just let everyone know the most popular answers and go from there. The categories are as follows;
To go with these, there's also a few questions. Who are you hoping to have new music from this year? Out of the albums already announced for 2020, what one are you most excited for? Assuming we're actually allowed to gather in groups again at some point this year, who are you most excited to see live?
Once again, there are many ways you can participate. Those options are commenting below, private messaging the page, or on individual posts yet to come. Check the page for that, they're coming soon. I am going to start making those posts after I posted this, so please look at the page for those. The more answers the better, though try not to comment on every single source. I don't want someone getting an unfair advantage, I just want this to be fair.
So, please submit your answers! We'll work on this over a week or so, just to give everyone some time to get their opinions in, and give a balance.
I look forward to your answers and hope you guys have some fun with this.
So last night a friend IMed me and asked what my go to songs when I was angry were. We all have those go to songs, the songs that fuel the emotion, and just feel aggressive. I instantly named a few songs, as did she, and the conversation was sort of left at that. But I keep thinking about it, and there were so many more songs I didn't even think of at the moment. I have no idea why this is still on my mind, but thought, hey, might as well write them out since its on my mind!
I'm actually not currently mad about anything, I'm actually in a decent mood at the time of writing this. But a good song is a good song, and I think a lot of people out there will still agree with it. Also sorry I keep just making lists, its oddly entertaining for me, and I just hope someone else out there enjoys it as well. Here's a list of songs I turn to when I'm pissed off.
1. Gasoline -I Prevail
2. Bow Down- I Prevail (Is anyone even a little surprised? If you've been around for a while, I'm sure you're not)
3. Waking The Demon -Bullet For My Valentine (This is the original one for me! First song I ever remember turning to to fuel the emotion was this)
4. People = Shit -Slipknot
5. The Devil In I- Slipknot
6. Mr. Highway's Thinking About The End -A Day To Remember
7. The Downfall Of Us All -A Day To Remember
8. Antivist- Bring Me The Horizon
9. Taste of Regret -Of Mice And Men
10. Where Did It Go? -Asking Alexandria
11. Riot -Three Days Grace
I actually found it much harder to find exactly what I turn to while not actually in a mood. Its a bit of an instinctual thing when you're in the moment. You don't even have to think about it, just instantly gravitate toward certain songs. When you're not in the moment, it actually takes some thought. I feel like there's honestly so much more that I would normally turn to, but yet for some reason I can't think of much more.
I was looking through my music library and my first thought was "Well just about anything heavy works." But that's not necessarily true. Its still specific songs. Perhaps its just because I'm not in that mindset, or maybe I just need more caffeine, but my list is rather short right now.
What songs do you tend to turn to? Let us know in the comments either here or on Facebook. And while you're at it, I've been doing a lot like this lately just to pass the time. The other day, after talking with a few of you guys on the page, I began what will hopefully turn into a series. I made a playlist of things I've felt particularly drawn to lately, which you can read by clicking here. Or I also made a list of 50 empowering songs, which you can read by clicking here. There's also been a few other just light hearted fun posts made prior to both of those. You can just find those in the creator's blog, if you're interested.
Thank you for sticking around, and interacting. You guys don't know what it means to me even in normal times, but it means even more in these tough times. It sounds completely cheesy, but it does sincerely make me feel less alone. I'm sure I'll be back again soon with some other nonsense that nobody asked for. Talk to you guys soon.
So earlier, I was watching some music videos, and sharing them as I did so on the Facebook page. I always share music, whether or not I'm listening to any, but I will say something that's been genuinely making me happy during this whole quarantine is watching music videos and looking for new music. It really does take me back to my early days of first discovering rock and metal, and pop punk. Its actually made me forget temporarily about all the shit that's going on, and I actually feel happy again. Not a lot has been doing that lately, so once again, music wins. Nobody's surprised there.
While I was sharing some of the videos though, someone who's fairly new to the page commented on one asking if I have playlists anywhere because they were really enjoying the stuff I was sharing. This got me thinking maybe that would be a fun thing to do, so I asked you guys what you thought of me maybe making a weekly playlist. Just share what I'm feeling and maybe hear some of what you guys are feeling too. Well, like six people acknowledged the post, so that was good enough for me! Shout out to Oriane George for this idea! I hope you enjoy, and I hope everyone feels empowered to share what they're loving right now as well.
I can't promise I will actually do this every week, but it seems like something fun to try to keep up with, even if its just temporarily. So without further ado, here is the 'playlist' for quarantine week 4 for myself. I don't actually have a current playlist, this is just a list of songs I've noticed I'm turning on often, getting stuck in my head, or just simply felt like including.
1. Monsters -All Time Low
2. Something's Gotta Give- All Time Low
3. Sleeping In- All Time Low
4. Weightless - All Time Low
5. Taste Of Regret -Of Mice and Men
6. Bow Down- I Prevail
7. Hurricane (Reimagined) -I Prevail
8. Tears Don't Fall - Bullet For My Valentine
9. Sugar We're Going Down -Fall Out Boy
10. Afterall -Beartooth
11. Talk to A Friend -Slaves
12. Upside Down -Hollywood Undead (feat. Kellin Quinn)
13. Jamie All Over -Mayday Parade
14. Pretty Handsome Awkward -The Used
15. I Caught Fire -The Used
16. Caraphernila -Pierce The Veil
17. I Won't Break -Escape The Fate
18. The Downfall Of Us All -A Day To Remember
19. All I Want -A Day To Remember
20. Mantra -Bring Me The Horizon
I definitely could keep going but I gotta save something for future posts. So with that, here's the first playlist! Thank you again to Oraine for your comment, and for everyone else for supporting this idea! If I'm honest, your input and interactions mean the world to me. It reminds me of the early days of Immortal Music, and just brings the fun back to this whole thing ago.
Leave some of your own suggestions, full lists, whatever you might want, and I'll talk to you guys very soon.
I don't know about anyone else, but lately, I've been feeling rather down. Not a surprise, right? The world is a disaster area, and its not recommended to leave the house without a mask. Its a scary time for the world, we all know that. Who know living through a historic time was so damn tramuatic yet boring all at once. With that, and the fact that I feel like I'm somehow already running out of entertainment and its only been four weeks for me of isolation, I kind of feel like I need something that's uplifting, empowering, or just happy. In comes music, of course.
So, I did ask for some, and got a handful of really great answers. I'd like to include them but this was a few days ago now and I cannot find the post now. I've posted just enough that its been lost in the shuffle. So, if you'd like to suggest more, absolutely please do. You can do so in the comments below or over on Facebook, or Instagram because I think I will post there as well. But because I lost the post, and didn't give you guys any suggestions, just listened to yours, I decided to make a list of some happy/ inspirational/ uplifting songs that I already have.
Also, yes I have already done something similar to this lately. I've been a bit bored and for some reason making lists is one of several things I'm using to pass the time. If you want to see the other lists, which were my favorite songs by my top five favorite bands, and my favorite songs period. If not, keep on reading. Another quick note, these songs are not in any sort of order, just the order in which I thought of. They're not ranked in any way.
All the songs listed below are meant to inspire, empower, and just help you get through a tough time. Most of these I will say don't sound extremely happy, and they are not all rock, metal or pop punk. Most of them are, but I did slip in a couple that were just pop. I hope some of these really help someone you there feel a little better in this tough time, and just are reminded that they're not alone. They might not all be particularly happy songs, but every single one has a good over all message.

There's 50 songs that are meant to be empowering, inspiring, something. Something that will hopefully help your mental health some. Now there's hundreds of thousands of songs like this across all genres, but this is just what I could think of. Once again, please share any of the songs you can think of with us in the comments below, over on Facebook or Instagram.
Also know if anyone out there is struggling or just is bored and wants to talk, my DM's are completely open and I will answer as quickly as I can. I'm checking for messages multiple times a day just so nobody gets overlooked. I'm going to probably keep making lists like this because it really does take me back to when I first started doing this. Its kinda pointless, but its fun for me, so I'll probably keep doing it as the ideas come. I do also plan on doing reviews here and there, just haven't quite felt like it yet.
I'll talk to you guys soon, please continue to stay safe and once again, make sure to leave your suggestions!
So I made a post yesterday about my favorite songs, and mentioned what my favorite bands currently are as well. If you're interested in reading that, please click here. It was just a fun little post, as is this one, but its fun to just write about music related things for the hell of it again. We all need some more light fun right now, so why not keep going since I'm enjoying it.
In that post, I said I might go ahead and make a list of my favorite songs from each of my favorite bands. Its totally pointless and completely unnecessary, but hey, its fun so I'm doing it! To recap, I said my favorite bands are I Prevail, All Time Low, A Day To Remember, Shinedown and Papa Roach, in that order. Because of that, I will make this list in that same order, starting with I Prevail.
It seems a bit redundant to even name my favorites from I Prevail, because frankly, they don't have a single song I don't like. Hell, I include most of their discography into every playlist I've made since like 2016. I'll still narrow it down some, just for the whole purpose of this post. My favorites from them are: Bow Down, Hurricane, Breaking Down, Scars, and Stuck In Your Head.
All Time Low: Their list is going to be a bit longer, just due to the fact that they have eight albums now, and I have been a fan of them since before Nothing Personal came out just over ten years ago. My favorites from them would be Weightless (either verison of the song really) Something's Gotta Give, Poppin Champagne, Kids In The Dark, A Party Song (probably the Its Still Nothing Personal version), Somewhere In Neverland, Lost In Stereo, and Stay Awake.
A Day To Remember: I oddly think their list is on the shorter side, and I don't know why really. I find myself turning them on quite a bit and its not just the songs on this list. In all reality, I'll probably go back to this list at a later date and realize I forgot to name a few. Anyway, the songs are; All I Want, All Signs Point To Lauderdale, I'm Made Of Wax Larry What Are You Made Of, The Downfall Of Us All, Sometimes You're The Hammer Sometimes You're The Nail, and Have Faith In Me.
Shinedown: Shinedown is very close to my heart, not even just for the musical reasons. I solidly think they're the reason Immortal Music has grown to the level it has. I interviewed their guitarist, Zack Myers in 2014, and they shared not only the interview but the recap post I made about the evening. For several years, I got very consistent views, and I will forever thank them for that. Their songs are: Unity, Second Chance, Asking For It, Save Me, I Dare You, Breaking Inside, If You Only Knew, and I'll Follow You.
Papa Roach: I feel like over the years, I've grown less attached to them. When they released their Fear album in 2015, they absolutely were my number one band. I love them still, don't get me wrong, but I definitely will say I've grown away from them some as time as passed. I still have a decent list for them though, and those songs are as follows. Scars, Face Everything And Rise, Skeletons, Leader Of The Broken Hearts, Warriors, and of course who doesn't love Last Resort and Getting Away With Murder? Those just feel like a given.
Was this at all necessary? Absolutely not. Hopefully someone enjoyed it, I had fun putting it together. Once again feel free to let me know your favorite songs from either these bands, or your favorite bands. Also expect more pointless posts like this, its just good to write again, and it gives me something to do for a while that's not just cleaning my house or figuring out what other movies to watch. Talk to you soon, stay safe.
