Since I already forgot about last week's promise to make Mondays, "Angsty Mondays" I thought I'd jump ship right-quick and go for Angsty Tuesday. Which is funny to me since my daughter's name is Tuesday. And she sure can be angsty. But anyway. If you got kids who like to turn the volume to 11 and dance and scream and pogo, you may wanna try out Rancid. Because of the ska beats, these songs make for EZ, crazed dance-party-a-go-gos. Of course the cursing is out of control on many of these songs, which may or may not be a problem for you. I didn't include "Bloodclot" for that very reason. These appear to be mostly clean. Mostly. Nothing too glaringly, "Oops." And since yesterday I mentioned the Krofft's I thought, why not include the best (okay maybe not the best, but certainly the longest) story-song-TV-theme of all time, "HR Pufnstuf." It seems like the perfect foil to the cute-sy Rancid rage.
Rancid, "Time Bomb"

More Rancid is available on eMusic and iTunes for download.
