Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time: #11 “Crush” by Pendulum

I remember vividly the day The Big Cheese and I saw Linkin Park at Madison Square Garden a couple of days before my birthday two years ago, February 4, 2011. The concert was nationally televised on Fuse.

What wasn’t televised, however, were the opening bands. Does It Offend You, Yeah? and Pendulum.

People I know have heard of DIOYY, but seldom do I know of anyone that has heard Pendulum before.

The guy sitting behind The Big Cheese and I didn’t stop pestering us about Pendulum. Telling us about how his sister had introduced him to the band and about how they’d be the best part of the concert. He was wrong, but nevertheless, Pendulum did turn out to be a fantastic band. Too bad they couldn’t get a good crowd reaction, the only crowd there to enjoy it was the pit.

Here’s a song from them for you to listen to.

Oh, and Pendulum has gone on hiatus.

Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time: #29 “Gold on the Ceiling” by The Black Keys

A real rock song. Off El Camino, “Gold on the Ceiling” has been used in numerous advertisements including in the teasers for one of my favorite shows, Swamp People. I heard it being played at MSG and on ESPN NBA Sunday Showcase, too. The song is really good, guys and gals. Really good.

Let me remind you that this list is not compiled in any order, it is just numbered appropriately as so you can go through the list with ease in the future.

Here’s the song.
