The List: SWINE FLU
Ah, H1N1…you weren’t even on the cultural radar two weeks ago. Now, every cough, ache, and fit of restlessness makes us wonder if it’s you pulling those pathogenic strings.
Here, then, is a list of songs dedicated to rocking through a Nyquil haze, bookended by two versions of “Down With the Sickness”: The original by Disturbed and the way more entertaining Richard Cheese version.
Of special “downloadworthiness” are Mudhoney’s “Touch Me I’m Sick,” one of grunge’s best recorded moments, the ridiculous “Three Little Pigs” by Green Jelly, and “Sick Again” by Led Zeppelin, from the must-own “Physical Graffiti” album.
