Totally Awesome Music Playlist from Twelve Years Ago

It’s like Mike Ness could see into the future.

Taking two steps forward, then four steps back,

I wanna go to the White House and paint it black…

Social Distortion

A few weeks ago, I found myself down a rabbit hole. I was in my email archive. Always a scary place to go when you archive everything. While down this rabbit hole, I found a bad ass music playlist. It was chock full of gold.

Apparently, on April 6, 2008, I wrote down the names of all the songs I listened to that day. According to Google, April 6, 2008, was a Sunday. My guess is I was celebrating having just written a 12-page paper while a student at UVA.

Also during this time, instead of a narcissistic madman in the White House whose only real ambition is power, we had a forward thinking sane human being named Barack Obama soon to be in the White House. But I digress.
