With Rise Against’s June 2017 release of “Wolves”, I decided now was the time to do a mini deep dive on their back catalog. Armed with google searches and a couple of reddit boards, I came up the playlist below.
By no means am I a superfan, so feedback and requests are welcome through Twitter (@chiswick_radio).
I will keep this very brief. I did a deep dive of the Strokes catalog on Spotify, and pulled the songs that I thought merited being on this Stokes playlist (I like to call it a “digital box set”).
Admittedly, this list is weighed heavy on the first album “This Is It”—- as almost every song appears on it. I’m sure I will get it from someone for the two songs I left off (and don’t get me started on “New York City Cops”) .
But there is some balance here with songs from every album, including an independent single and the recent EP.
The Strokes have been a great band, the last 15 years. The only issue was their first album will be the most highly regarded fom now until eternity—there was no rising action—we were at the top of the mountain from the beginning. But, the entire catalog is definitely worth going through a few times.
There are 31 songs here that come in a little under two hours. Enjoy.
We kind of went off-roading this week on various tracks. Our love for hockey (Fluxland), new stuff, (Empire of the Sun, Beach Slang, Against Me!) classic stuff (Elton John, AC/DC, Run-DMC), a mini-deep dive on Urge Overkill, sampled music and other stuff. Enjoy and remember we keep all the playlists here:(http://wp.me/p7oYBz-4d) which are at 150 songs and counting. You can also follow us on Spotify (chiswickradio) and access all our playllsts.
Enjoy the weekend!
