Me, middle school again

I dusted off my copy of Cake's platinum-selling, yet still under-appreciated 1996 album "Fashion Nugget." It brought me back to getting off the school bus, zoned in on the tunes squirting out the Walkman into my ear drums through some big-ass headphones as I walked down the hallway extra slow, sneering at my classmates with an undeserved sense of cultural superiority. Nostalgia's a bitch, and I felt like making the playlist I would have at that age if I had a CD burner.

1) Cake - Nugget
2) Cake - Italion Leather Sofa
3) Beck - Devil's haircut
4) Beck - Where It's At
5) Rage Against the Machine - No Shelter
6) Rage Against the Machine - Bulls on Parade
7) Eels - Mr. E's Beautiful Blues
8) Eels - Grace Kelly Blues
9) Pearl Jam - Daughter
10) Ben Folds Five - One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces
11) Ben Folds Five - Battle of Who Could Care Less
12) Nirvana - Man Who Sold the World
13) Green Day - Hitchin' A Ride
14) Green Day - Long View
15) Blink 182 - Dammit
16) Dave Matthews Band - So Much to Say
17) Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band - Blue on Black
18) Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze
19) Led Zeppelin - Black Dog
20) Nirvana - In Bloom

Holy shit, I would have made a very similar playlist, also starting with Nugget "shut the fuck up... right.. yeah" but would have added "Truck Driving Neighbors Downstairs" from Beck's Mellow Gold, "People of the Sun" by Rage, and for the gold.... "Pure Massacre" or "Isaac's Son" by Silverchair. Rawk. CD would be pretty long then eh. Heh.
