Nice, is that the one that has kim saying "She comes by to get me high" and Cypress starts with "Look who's back in the program..."?

judgement night. what crap.

that movie sucked ass.

the soundtrack was better than the movie but damn.

the only reason that soundtrack went gold was because every metal head bought it for the anthrax/public enemy bring the noise

which to my dismay is actually LESS NOISY than the original!
anthrax version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jECu7EefwRk

original public enemy kicking ass taking no prisoners version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei0oZlyqboA

I was watching Richard Pryor live in concert for the 30th or so time yesterday and I fucking cracked up again when he mentioned the cops siccing a doberman on a black dude in an alley and th dude was "low-runnin'!"

I fucking love that low-runnin' joke!

this is the tracklisting for the judgment night soundtrack, which i listened
to twice, i think.
1. Just Another Victim - Helmet/House Of Pain
2. Fallin' - Teenage Fanclub/ De La Soul
3. Me, Myself & My Microphone - Living Colour,/Run D.M.C.
4. Judgment Night - Biohazard/Onyx
5. Disorder - Slayer/Ice-T
6. Another Body Murdered - Faith No More/Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E.
7. I Love You Mary Jane - Sonic Youth/Cypress Hill
8. Freak Momma - Mudhoney/Sir Mix-A-Lot
9. Missing Link - Dinosaur Jr./Del The Funky Homosapien
10. Come And Die - Therapy?/Fatal
11. Real Thing - Pearl Jam/Cypress Hill

the dino/del should have been world-ending. alas. the slayer/ice-t collabo
was the best thing on there.

It is kind of weird to think that they are still rather obscure despite also being a household name. There must still be big chunks of the world where you can go for miles without ever seeing a SY record. Here in the NW, it'd be easy to believe they sold a lot more as most people I meet sure seem to have a least half of their albums.

all i could find that hasn't been previously said is that rather ripped debuted at 71 on the charts and it appears that they have no gold albums.

I wouldn't be so sure. I read recently that they can no longer afford to take their own PA on tour with them and have to hire locally.

ejstns was pretty heavily marketed, i think. i'm surprised washing machine didn't sell more.

but, those numbers look right.

I'm surprised that Confusion is Sex even sold that much. Not that I don't like it, it just seems kind of high for that type of album.
