    I have already used Swans, so I will not not go with them again. A lot of the music I listen to should be played loud.

    (But if I was going to use Swans again)

    More than any other song this one makes me stop and turn up the dial… to 12 if I could.

    Sometimes, when I get back in the car, the radio is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too loud and I fumble to turn it down quickly and I think “why was I listening to the radio that loudly?!?” and then I remember that this was playing:

      That title is awfully familiar.

      The White Stripes announced the completion of Icky Thump on February 28, 2007. The title is derived from “ecky thump”, a Lancashire colloquial response of surprise, popularized by an episode of the 1970s UK comedy series The Goodies.

      The Goodies were a Pythonish comedy trio. Their “ecky thump” was a Lancastrian martial art in which you hit your opponent over the head with a blood sausage.Report

    An AC/DC song played on the radio while driving for lunch. It doesn’t matter which one. They’re all the same song. (Though if I had to pick one to turn up loudest, it’d be “Whole Lotta Rosie”.)

    This song also played on the way there. It needed to be turned up too:

    It’s a cover, but I think I like it better than the original.

    And I’ve seen Metallica twice, but they haven’t played this song. The first time I saw them, they opened with “Battery,” “Master of Puppets,” and “Breadfan,” which was the best opening of any concert I’ve been to.
