Dec 20, 2007 - daretruth on Bassnectar
Amazing

There is nothing like catching Lorin live. He is one of the top "underground" DJs in the world.

Nov 14, 2007 - UnfoldingDream on Social Distortion
Still one of my favorites

Whether it's Johnny Cash covers or their own songs, Social Distortion has a sound that remained largely intact even after their transition to a mainstream audience and that continues to resonate years after the band came on the scene.
