Sonic Overload 2/7/11

After I finished recording this show, I realized that I forgot to congratulate the Green Bay Packers for their victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. The funny thing is quite a bit of this week’s playlist was inspired by something connected with the game. February 6 was the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ronald Reagan. I’ve done Reagan “tributes” before, most notably right after he died in 2004 and I’ve had Reagan-oriented sets on anniversaries of his death since then. The intention was to mark this event with maybe a set or two of songs. Then I saw the tribute that the NFL did for the centennial of Reagan’s birth and how it bordered on deification. Not defecation, which I’d much rather have seen but, hey, that’s just me. I’m an aging, cranky punk rocker who actually remembers what this character did in the 1980s and how much it inspired hardcore and punk music at the time. Not mention how much it inspired this young cranky pnnk rocker at the time.

So that tribute—I didn’t actually see it on the game broadcast but on YouTube over the weekend and made an edit, as you can hear, plus added my own special twist. I posted some songs on my Facebook page over the weekend—DRI’s “Reaganomics,” The Crucifucks’ “Hinckley Had A Vision” (that was particularly popular) and DOA’s “Fucked Up Ronnie.” An acquaintance of mine  expressed support for the Gipper, saying he saved the country and he posted a bunch of Fox News-derived gibberish about Obama’s socialistic policies, to summarize things a bit. Voila—MORE inspiration for this week’s show. I also received a number of requests once people found out what I’d be doing. I didn’t get all of them in but I hope it’s still satisfactory for ‘ya.

Next week—Valentine’s Day. Prepare to feel the love!!
