“The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie” by Red Hot Chili Peppers – The Song of the Week for 7/25/2011

“The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie” by Red Hot Chili Peppers is the 1st single from the upcoming album I’m With You, set to be released August 26, 2011

Genre: Funk Rock, Alternative Rock

Not that the Red Hot Chili Peppers need my help in getting more exposure! I think the departure of John Frusciante will hurt but hopefully the album is still good. This week “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie” debuted on Billboard’s Rock Charts at number 23. Power to the Peppers!

“Tic-toc, I want to rock you like the 80s
Cock-blocking isn’t allowed.
Tug boat sheila is into memorabilia
Who said three is a crowd?
We better get it on the go”

“Make It Stop (September’s Children)” by Rise Against – The Song of the Week for 7/18/2011

rise-against-band-wallpaper-5
“Make It Stop (September’s Children)” by Rise Against is the 2nd single from the fantastic Endgame album, released March 15, 2011

Genre: Alternative Rock

First single “Help Is On The Way” has currently spent 25 weeks on Billboard’s Rock Charts and peaked at #2. Let’s see if “Make It Stop” can reach the #1 spot. Rise Against is one of the hottest rock bands going, hopefully this new single will keep the momentum.

I am glad to see the band featured in the video, as they were absent from the video for “Help Is On The Way”.

“Make it stop
Make this end
This life chose me, I’m not lost in sin
And proud I stand of who I am
I plan to go on living”

The Strokes - Taken For A Fool - single cover

“Taken For A Fool” by The Strokes – The Song of the Week for 7/11/2011

The Strokes - band picture - 2011
“Taken For A Fool” is the 2nd single from The Strokes killer comeback album Angles, released March 22, 2011

Genre: Post-Punk Revival, New Wave

I personally like “Taken For A Fool” better than lead single “Under the Cover of Darkness” but who’s counting? New album Angles is awesome. I even wrote up a review for it.

“Sister, it feels like just yesterday,
Sister, don’t you forget my number, on the door.
You’ve got something and it’s so good to see,
Something wonderful that I could not be.
Everybody hanging on for their lives,
But you can’t help them ‘cos you don’t have the time”

“Monster On The Radio” by Blindside – The Song of the Week for 7/4/2011

Blindside - band picture - 2011

“Monster on the Radio” by Blindside is the 1st single from the long-awaited new album With Shivering Hearts We Wait, set to be released June 7, 2011

Genre: Alternative Rock, Post-Hardcore

Blindside is one of my personal all-time favorite bands. The song is definitely more “poppy” than most Blindside songs of the past and hopefully will reach a bigger audience. I can definitely hear this song on the radio! This song is infectious!

“Frequency unclear
Do I hear myself through the static and noise?
My heart is still beating
But I can’t hear it over the sound of my own voice
This is my own voice
And still I’m turning it up”
