Some best ofs in my current favourite lists.
While most of the music on my favourites list are original compositions, here are some cover versions and songs that sample others that I currently like a lot:
Something For Kate — Born To Run — I almost like this more than Springsteen’s original.
P Diddy with Jimmy Page — Come With Me — samples Led Zep’s Kashmir. Not the sort of creation I’d normally like, but I do.
The Gaslight Anthem — Baba O’Riley — this is really quite good. Incidentally, I read over the weekend that Meha Baba also inspired Bobby McFerrin’s Don’t Worry Be Happy — a far more annoying song.
Spiderbait — Black Betty — in particular the iTunes Originals recording, which rocks harder and longer than the album version.
Best angry songs
Some angry songs from my list:
Area 7 — Second Class Citizen — angry yoof.
Lily Allen — F$%# You — apparently about George W Bush
The Tenants — You Shit Me To Tears
Faith No More’s Epic is a bit of a grumpy song, rather than an angry song. I seem to recall The Datsuns’ MF From Hell would go well here.
What others are out there?

From memory, my best derivative was f'(x) = 2sin(x) + 3(x-4)/(2x-3)
I like a bit of metal so…..
Disturbed – down with the sickness
SlipKnot – new abortion
Marilyn Manson – Sweet Dreams
Kelis “I hate you so much right now”
and best cover: “Mad World” on the Donny Darko soundtrack
Haven’t heard Area 7 mentioned in a very long time. I was actually an extra in the video for Second Class Citizen
I like the youtube video with Michael Jackson’s egyptian video and the Bangles’ song “Walk like an Egyptian”.
