20 Singles. The Final Countdown.

No need to cough out your tea. Europe are not about to enter my 20 Singles chart. As with the 20 Albums – I thought it logical to try and order them. There… Continue reading

The Exploited – Dead Cities – 20 Singles.

A bit of selfishness here. I know a lot of people will not agree that “Dead Cities” by The Exploited is one of the best 20 singles ever made. It really is about… Continue reading

Money Mark – Hand In Your Head – 20 Singles.

The Beastie Boys are one of my all time favourite bands. They get high placings in my 20 Albums, so I’m overlooking them for 20 Singles. If i was to go with a… Continue reading

Johnny Foreigner – Salt, Peppa & Spinderella – 20 Singles.

Dead Kennedys – Holiday In Cambodia – 20 Singles.

Released in 1980 I got round to hearing this in 1984. The single is the Dead Kennedy’s 2nd ever release and is different to the re-recorded version that features on their debut album… Continue reading

The Misfits – Bullet – 20 Singles.

Released on the bands own label in 1978 (Plan 9) The Misfits released an astonishing 7 inch single that is now worth a small fortune. Incredibly no record label would put out their… Continue reading
