There are a couple reasons I chose the '07 team. One, my musical tastes sucked major ass pre-2000, at least. Secondly, there's nothing greater than the immediacy of the present. Being alive at this moment in musical time is awesome - there are so many kick-ass albums being made every day it's hard to keep up. '90-'97 was ok - it had plenty of great tracks - but it can't compare to what's happening RIGHT NOW. I'll take a quote from SLC Punk:

"Bob: You tell me if this doesn't rock
Stevo: This isn't anything.
Bob: Just give it a chance:
Stevo: What is it?
Bob: What is it?
Stevo: Yeah, what is it, Bob?
Bob: It's new."

Yeah, that first track is a typo. It meant to be a "Fuck You!" to the '97 team.

More points for quoting SLC Punk. It seems like a large task to convince someone born in 1986 what they missed when they were five. No disrespect, but you took quite a stance. Did you mean, "Fook You, '87" on track one?

Despite the fact that TEAM ROBOT was crushed like a Pabst can at a frat party by the might claws of TEAM MONSTER, you are still deserving of a badge... Loser.

Some very good stuff here, as there is in all eras of recorded music (if you look hard enough) The immediacy argument has some weight though!

The Halloween 2007 Badge badge
The Halloween 2007 Badge
Happy Halloween 2007! In celebration of this event, here is a recipe to make your very own candy corn:

Combine 1 cup of razor blades, 2 cups of clown tears and 3/4 tablespoon spider eggs in a pan and bring to a boil stirring constantly. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and add 2 cups hemlock and 3 ounces of fish oil. Stir until cool enough to handle. Shape and distribute.

Trick or treat!
