So what do I do on New Year’s Eve? Listen to music. And what music do I listen to that blasts me blissfully in to the new year? To set the proper tone for 2014?
Seriously, this cheers me up. A song that should be blasted at full volume to enjoy. Head banging is good on New Year’s eve. Not that I’m advising banging anyone else’s head – that would be BAD. Just your own.
Then watch a live performance video (not great quality video, but the sonics are pretty good). Compared to the albums, the live band was much more punk. Amazing amount of energy!! Which is, of course, what you want coming in to a new year – energy!! good grief!!! the logic is indisputable!!!! (no, we’re not a cult – sheesh – a few exclamation points and people start to worry).
See!! Happy New Year!!!
