Jane’s Addiction played “Three Days” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week. Listening to this song is a spiritual experience. If you have a car, get in it, play this song and drive around. Preferably at night. If you don’t have a car, get one or borrow one from a friend. This entire side of the album is one of the best album sides of the era but this song in particular is as akin to going to a place of worship. There’s even a bit of a tribal rhythm to the middle of the song, making it feel even more like you’re in the middle of a ceremony.
It’s songs like this one that make life bearable.
Yes I’ve been neglecting this blog again, I’m sorry. But here’s a new vlog I’m doing about music that I hope you’ll watch and share.
Ride - “Furthest Sense”
I am the guest on this week’s Louder Than Bombs podcast hosted by Sherry Parnes. We talk punk rock, Pink Floyd, and this very blog. You can also follow the podcast on Twitter at @ltb_podcast.

Yesterday MC Serch tweeted that there will be a 3rd Bass reunion show in NYC in July, which is very exciting if you are a fan of 90s hip-hop and live in NYC.
It’s official 3rd Bass first show The island of Brooklyn July 12 More info to come See you soon NY— MC Serch (@MCSerch)
Everyone remembers their huge hit “Pop Goes The Weasel” from 1994’s Derelicts of Dialect, here’s another great single off the same album.
"Glamour Is A Rocky Road" - My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult
Hit and Run Holiday, 1995
And then it hit me, and it felt like a kiss.
"No More Tears" - Ozzy Osbourne
No More Tears, 1991
They played this song during the third period of the Black Hawks/Red Wings game the other night and it was a wonderful reminder that we live in a world of great things. Turn this up loud, if your neighbors complain that you are playing an Ozzy song too loud your landlords are legally obligated to evict them.
There are now over 30,000 people following this blog so thanks a lot. That’s crazy. To celebrate this, and also for the joy of making a new playlist, I have created a new Spotify playlist with some of my very favorite songs from the 90s. I hope you like them too. And thanks again for reading this little blog.
