I was watching our President the other day and he dropped a line about avoiding World War III by keeping Iran from having a nuclear weapon. Now, whatever you think about the state of politics in the US or the world today, there’s no doubt that there’s a lot of people that just don’t like the U.S. and think we’re being too imperialistic. So this is a mix I’ve been kicking around for a while and it seems like it’s gestated long enough. This mix includes music from the soundtrack of Team America, Black Label Society, Rage Against the Machine, Front 242, The Cure, Dropkick Murphys, Sex Pistols, David Bowie, Trent Reznor, Tears for Fears, Ween, Static-X, Motörhead, Gogol Bordello, Ladytron, Outkast, Rammstein and Nine Inch Nails. Strength and Honor, citizens!
This week’s episode of Radio Gen1us takes us to the very cliffs of insanity that were the American Punk scene starting in the late 60s with The Velvet Underground and their connections to the UK with the Sex Pistols and the Clash. Artists this week include The Buzzcocks, The Jam, MC5, David Bowie, The Velvet Underground, Iggy Pop, Richard Hell of the Heartbreakers, The Runaways, Patti Smith, Television, The New York Dolls, The Ramones, The Dead Boys, The Sex Pistols, The Damned, The Clash and Plastic Bertrand (just for fun).
