Second, since I was a wee babe I have had extremely sensitive ear-holes (pretty sure that's the scientific name). When driving in the car the music never exceeds a volume of 14 or 15*. The songs I have compiled below are all songs that I have and do crank up to volumes of 35 or 40. Seriously guys. I also belt them out as loud as humanly possible.
I also want to note that from what I've seen, my musical tastes deviate from those of many bloggers I read. I hope you'll listen with an open mind because there is no Bon Iver in this playlist (seriously, did I miss some sort of blog memo on Bon Iver? I see that band everywhere in this here blogosphere).
For those of you who cannot see the below playlist, here is a list of the songs. You can find most of them on YouTube/Amazon/iTunes.
Diamond in the Rough//Social Distortion
Fields of Athenry//Dropkick Murphys
Don't Think Twice//Mike Ness
Forever Fades Away//Tiger Army
Far Side of Nowhere//Social Distortion
Dine, Dine My Darling//Alkaline Trio
Likes of You Again//Flogging Molly
Sick Boys//Social Distortion
*The volume on my car stereo has to be an even number or a number ending in 5 or 0. Don't judge me.
