The Toasters, "Dub 56"

We're mid-career with the Toasters here, with the Toasters basically having found their sound with Dub 56. They'd further refine it a bit on the next couple albums, but this is more or less where they ended up. You can very much hear their debt to two-tone ska here.

Foetus, "I Hate You All"

After Flow and Blow in 2001, J.G. Thirlwell didn't release another record under the Foetus moniker until 2006, releasing Damp. When he came back, he was in a very strange place. Like, I'm not even sure what to call this? Deranged big band, I guess? There's nothing else really like it, and I love it.

Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, "Carmela"

In some ways, this feels right coming after that last song. I don't know why! Maybe just the sequence of horns in these three songs - sorta ironic, definitely ironic I guess, not at all ironic? I dunno.

The Queers, "Another Girl"

Dammit, not now! You screwed up our flow here!

Crudbump, "I Don't Do Shit"

There are a lot of rap songs that present these visions of what the good life can be, but none of them are anywhere as relatable to me as "I Don't Do Shit".
