The Unicorns - Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?

Short-lived indie band from Montreal that disbanded in 2004. Even if you're not the biggest fan of the genre of music they associate with, there's a good chance you'll really enjoy this one. The song structures are untraditional, unidentifiable instruments are used, and the songs are catchy as shit. It'll give you fuzzy feelings in your stomach.

2. Tuff Ghost
3. Ghost Mountain
4. Sea Ghost
5. Jellybones
6. The Clap
7. Child Star

The Misfits - Walk Among Us

I'm seeing the Misfits for the third time in my life tonight, and in honor of that, I'm posting their arguably most classic LP, Walk Among Us. As far as their live show now: they may lack Danzig, and a few things may have changed, but they are still super fun, and nothing beats singing along to "Braineaters". Mr. Danzig is a shitbag now anyway.

1. 20 Eyes
2. I Turned Into A Martian
3. All Hell Breaks Loose
4. Vampira
5. Nike A Go Go
6. Hatebreeders
7. Mommy Can I Go Out & Kill Tonight? (Live)
8. Night of the Living Dead
9. Skulls
10. Violent World
11. Devil's Whorehouse
12. Astro Zombies
13. Braineaters
