lots of cross pollination out there...
With so many varieties of music, you have to have a playlist for each mood and or "vibe".
Amp me up music: punk or hip hop.
Punk: Dead Kenedys, the Queers, Social Distortion, Blake Flag, old Bad Religion, Operation Ivy,
Hip Hop: Mentioned Before: add anything by Green Lantern
Get your grove on surf tunes:
Chemical Brothers, Modest Mouse, New Order, Kings of Leon
Spearhead, Matt Costa, Death Cab
Just a taste from my personal syntax
Claimer: Someone that makes a claim that they have been there and done that, can do anything you can do better than you. I hate "claimers"
