Alright, I got a little carried away with this one. It is kind of far out there with all the weird riffs and motorcycle sounds. Plus, it's big. Over five minutes long and about 9.5 Mb, full of weird stuff. By yerpa58
Landfill Park is a band who really deserves a page to themselves. They said I'm their biggest fan but that is not true, many of their fans are larger than me ;-) This song (Hey Hey Hey) is one of my favorites and really belongs on the pop charts.
This is some Midwest factory music from a band called Shane, a.k.a. Shane and the Losers. There are so many good songs on this disk that it was hard to pick just one. I like the drum part on this one. It is recorded with a lot of impact.
