Hello Rock- lovers,

Basically I'm writing this because I've heard of a few bands, but as I don't want to go and buy completely the wrong CDs, I'd like advice from you on hootoo, to tell me what to get. Anyway, here's my list:

Frank Zappa
The Damned
Black Flag
Reel Big Fish

That's my list. Help me if you can, with album names or song names. I'll do the same for you in return, if I can.

The Psycho Chicken -- self respect intact

Frank Zappa's 'Hot Rats' is a brilliant introduction. Not too wierd, but plenty on the Jazzy side.

Thanks. Is that a song or an album?

Sorry, that's a whole album. If you're feeling a little less adventurous, there's a compilation CD out there called 'Strictly Commercial' which avoids most of the really strange stuff, but still has great tunes!

Have fun,

Reel Big Fish- I'd suggest "Why do they rock so hard?" as an introduction to the Fish's bouncy punk. Why?

Because it rules!
