Kiss is one of the most loved/hated bands in the world. Hated because they literally invented corporate rock. But the bands included in this compilation know something - they love Kiss for all the right reasons, the music. That's why this compilation boasts some of the "best" bands ever compiled in a single project. Leading the pack is one of the biggest fans of Kiss, the Melvins plus a slew of other "top-rate" acts such as All, Chemical People, Bullet LaVolta, Skin Yard, the Instigators and Nirvana. So what are you waiting for? Grab it now!
Btw, it's not going to hurt you to leave comments, so please do so.

This is a request, Superchunk's 1991 album No Pocky for Kitty. This is a very good album, I can't get enough of this one and another album Here's Where the Strings Come In (it's probably because of Hyper Enough, hehe) Enjoy!

Freedom of Choice, a fund-raiser for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, presents some of the genre's best songs and places them in the context of the alternative rock of the 90s. So, songs by the Human League, A Flock of Seagulls, Missing Persons and Soft Cell are covered by Chia Pet, It's OK, Erectus Monotone, and Finger, respectively. Add covers of pre-new wavers Elvis Costello by Mudhoney and Iggy Pop by Tiny Lights, and you've got the idea.
When this collection came out in 1992, it was probably a little early to be commemorating the 80s and call -- as the liner notes do -- the Go-Go's Charlotte Caffey and Devo's Gerald V. "new wave legends". The good news, however, is that unlike most compilation CDs, this one is surprisingly consistent.
Sonic Youth, perhaps the best-known alternative band on the compilation, turn in a fine dismantling of Plastic Bertrand's "Ca Plane Pour Moi" as do Yo La Tengo, who cover Blondie's best song, "Dreaming".
White Flag provide an effective, albeit unrecognizable, cover of Kate Bush's "
More faithful to the originals are Mudhoney's take on Elvis Costello's "Pump it Up" and the Connells' rendition of Split Enz's "I Got You."
Ten years after the fact, this compilation remains an interesting relic, though it's telling that the bands of the 80s covered here are still remembered fondly, while the bands doing the covering are, but for a handful, mostly forgotten. - by epsteinsmutha

Tossing Seeds: Singles 89-91 is an album by Superchunk compiling a number of their earliest 7" singles and EPs. It was released by Merge Records in 1991.
All tracks on Tossing Seeds were recorded at Duck Kee Studios, except for "Seed Toss," which was recorded at the Chicago Recording Company.
Four of the tracks on this album are covers: "Train from Kansas City," a Shangri-Las song; "Night Creatures"; and "It's So Hard to Fall in Love" and "Brand New Love," which were originally recorded by Sebadoh.
"Slack Motherfucker" was named the 19th best single of the 1990s by Spin magazine. It was later covered by fIREHOSE on the Live Totem Pole EP.

Here's a post from Yoel - Bloodstains Across Puerto Rico. I made a cover from Bloodstains Across California but it's a piss-poor job I may say. Thanks to Yoel for the upload, keep it coming bro!
Well, I made some changes in the cover because I can't fucking takeit. Still not as good, but way much better than the previous attempt. hehe

Here's another post from Terrorizer. Actually, he snagged this from a blogspot somewhere but he can't remember where. So re-upload it to mediafire himself and send the link to me.
I think, this one's recorded in the wake of the West Memphis Three trials. I think the Rise Above Compilation for the West Memphis 3 was just been released. Keith & Henry shared the bill and played Black Flag songs. The first half of the record was with Keith Morris and the second one was with Hank. They also did two Ramones covers here as encores. Below are the complete tracklist:
01 - Intro by Keith Morris
02 - Nervous breakdown
03 - I've had it
04 - Depression
05 - Wasted
06 - Keith speaks
07 - No values
08 - Fix me
09 - Revenge
10 - Gimme gimme gimme
11 - Rise above
12 - Thirsty and miserable
13 - Clocked in
14 - I've heard it before
15 - American waste
16 - Henry speaks
17 - Jealous again & Room 13
18 - I don't care
19 - TV party
20 - Can't decide
21 - Police story
22 - Six pack
23 - What I see
24 - No more
25 - Black coffee
26 - Slip it in
27 - My war
28 - Intermezzo Henry talks
29 - Damaged

One of the most underrated acts of their time, the Swiss thrash trio Coroner were originally members of Celtic Frost's road crew. They eventually formed their own group, recording their demo "Death Cult" in 1986 with Tom G. Warrior of Celtic Frost on vocals. Their first full length album "R.I.P", released in 1987, featured bass player Ron Royce on vocals and he assumed the role for the rest of the group's existence. The group released several albums through 1993, ending with a greatest hits collection, "Coroner", in 1995. Lack of media exposure brought this band to disbanding in 1994 - and eventually to their farewell tour consequent to their self titled album. As of March 2005, rumours of a reunion in the works are hitting the heavy metal newspages persistently.
