description:
This is a very appropriate contest for me because my band is leaving on Tuesday for a five-week national tour across this great nation of ours in a big, gray, sketchy-looking twenty year old van. Suffice to say, we've been making massive amounts of mixtapes along every imaginable theme (we're up to about 40 hours...not even close to what we need). Maybe I'll see some of you out there? Our dates are posted at myspace.com/iloveitthefuckingmost.

The important thing to remember is that despite the work and effort that goes into planning and preparation, road trips are SO MUCH FUN! Hopefully this mix is too.

Track 4 from Teenager of the Year

Year: 1994
Track Description:
This is about the point when I really start digging this album. No road trip would be complete without it. "Used to be 16 lanes, used to Nuevo Spain, used to be Juan Wayne." Plus I'm always down with albums about California, especially LA.

Length: 00:03:11
Year: 1995
Track Description:
"Four kids on tour, 3000 miles, in a four door car not knowin' what was going on." I can't help but relate to this song in a way I never did when I was 15 now that I've done just that. It's a trip to have been a punk kid and into Bay Area bands like Rancid and Op Ivy and Green Day and Screeching Weasel and now live in Oakland and be a part of the current punk scene and see firsthand the kinds of people, places, and things those bands sung about.

I used to hate T-Rex because I thought "Bang a Gong" was annoying and my friends kept trying to get me to listen to the whole album and I finally did a few years ago when driving in the Anza-Borrego desert. Needless to say, I can't imagine any extended drive without this album. This is my fave song from it.
