This is about 3rd or 4th on my list of obsessions right now... 4th probably. Sorry for the re-re-repeat.

don't make me post Cake!

I saw Corrosion of Conformity at a bunch of punk shows in 1984 and 1985.  They were hardcore punk back then. I even had a COC sticker on my backpack at one point.  Hard to believe this is the same band.  Really not my taste at all.  Wonder wtf made them do stuff like this.

Had to re-post the song because YT already terminated the account. Usually you see this about 50 pages after posting. Guess I got lucky, haha!

 

Great song.  Great band.  Saw them on tour for this album.

Wish I would have been more motivated to see shows back then. I missed a lot of good stuff in the 90's.

I heard the Siouxsie and Banshee version hundreds of time before I heard the original.  Same thing with Dear Prudence. I think Siouxsie version blows this one away.  Unfortunately I have only heard Siouxsie version live as only time I saw Iggy was with the Stooges.

I think seeing band at the right time is important.  Saw Oasis on tour for their first album missing their best songs and saw Sisters of Mercy maybe 8 years ago when Andrew and company pretty much had lost whatever they had.

    • Rick, you're looking at the Forbes estimated value of the franchise - not the size of their markets. Forbes is famously not very reliable with those things. You're also ignoring Northern Virginia and DC itself as other large, wealthy communities. There's a huge gap between the Nationals and the Orioles.
    • I'm going against most everyone else. I think Detroit will surprise us and take Martin. Our picks; 2. Spencer Torkelson 30. Bryce Jarvis 39. Bobby Miller
    • 1. Austin Martin, 3B/OF, Vanderbilt, Age on draft day: 21 Martin may not be the first overall pick this year, but he’s the best overall prospect due to his combination of performance, athleticism and all-around quickness. There’s some Javy Báez to his hand speed, although unlike the young Báez, Martin rarely strikes out. We haven’t seen a top college prospect this athletic since George Springer in 2011, although before the draft Springer had the two-strike approach of a turnip. Martin punched out barely 10 percent of the time in 2019, and just twice in 69 plate appearances before baseball shut down in March. . He’s going to end up at a skill position — center, third, second, maybe shortstop if his arm is back to normal — and hit for average with developing power. That’s the kind of probability with upside you want at the first overall pick. 2. Spencer Torkelson, 1B, Arizona State, Age: 20 Torkelson hit everyone’s radar in the spring of 2018 when he hit 25 home runs as a freshman to lead all Division I hitters, then hit 7 more on the Cape that summer to finish one off the league lead. Torkelson is extremely strong, hitting for all this power with almost no stride and a two-handed finish that makes his swing almost short by comparison to most power hitters, and while he’s shown some swing-and-miss he’s also been willing to take walks, leading the country this spring before the shutdown. He’s a good enough athlete that he might be able to handle left field, although I’d bet on him spending most of his career at first base. ... but even if he’s a 50 hit/70 power guy in the end, that’s someone who hits fourth and makes a handful of All-Star teams. 3. Asa Lacy, LHP, Texas A&M, Age: 21 Lacy separated himself from the rest of this year’s very strong college pitching... , showing he could hold 93-94 mph deep into games, touching 98 mph, with a plus changeup and above-average slider. Lacy’s got a great starter’s build and his delivery works, with a big step-over stride and good timing. He works well to both sides of the plate, although his command and control are still inconsistent; the ability to reach back for 97-98 mph is great, but his stuff is good enough that he could just hold 92-93 mph all game and probably throw better strikes. If he’d had a full spring, and kept this up, more people would likely see him as a candidate to go 1-1. If there’s a future No. 1 starter in the class, I think it’s him.
    • You pay for certainty.   It sounds like Torkelson and Martin are the two most certain players in the draft.    Veen may have a very high ceiling and he may get more athletic but that isn't certain.  He could also get bigger and lose athleticism and the bat might not play against advanced competition.   You never know.  Martin played college ball in one of the best conferences, if not the best.   You could roll the dice and get two really good players but why roll the dice.  Take the "sure thing" (there is no such thing) at #2 and take the BPA at 30 and 39.    Even guys who drop from mid 1st round are far from sure things.   So, I'm not drooling over the possibility of getting the #15 or #20 guy at #30.    Give me the actually #2 guy at #2 and I'll roll the dice at #30 and #39.
    • That's a game nobody would have predicted, Palmer losing to a 1-7 Milwaukee pitcher Brabender and a poor Milwaukee team in it's second year of existence.    I always thought Seattle got a raw deal when the expansion team split after one season in 1969 leaving for Milwaukee.  Jim Bouton wrote a famous best-selling book "Ball Four" about that 1969 Seattle Pilots team playing in Sicks Stadium (the name fit the stadium) in Seattle .
