Listening to the @mxpxpx collection I just bought so I figured I’d #fangirl and post my knee cap #tattoo this was easily the most painful tattoo I have and absolutely one of my favorites. Listen to #mxpx or you’re not cool it’s that simple. #punkrock
Now playing: MxPx “Teenage Politics” & “Life In General”. These were both gifted to me last week at work and I couldn’t be more excited!!! I remember the first time hearing them. My friend James made me a tape when we were probably 15 of nothing but MxPx. I’d go skateboarding and listened to it till I couldn’t anymore. Two of the best pop punk records of all time. #vinyl #rock #punk #pop #mxpx #nerdlife #nowplaying #records #tooth #nail
Mike Herrera - Secret Weapon
I haven’t listened to this song in about 10 months and that’s because I completely burnt myself out on it. During the 4 months I spent at the FAA academy in Oklahoma City last year, I felt for the most part alone and under an enormous burden of pressure. It was a 4 month trial I had to pass in order to win a career. I listened to this song every morning in my car as I drove from my mom’s house in Midwest City to the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center. I listened to it over headphones before each radar problem I ran. The song became a rallying cry for me during a really challenging time in my life and now it’s so inexorably linked to that period and the connotation is such that I can’t listen to it without a flood of thoughts and memories and emotions rushing back to me.
But this is a really great acoustic version.
Two Night Stand - MxPx returns to their punk rock roots at Reggies!
In an industry with constant turnover flooded by flavors of the week and gimmicky artists looking to make a quick buck, it’s the ultimate accomplishment that MxPx have survived over two decades and still remain one of the pop-punk world’s most well-respected names.
Sometimes you gotta buy yourself the one thing you REALLY wanted for your birthday. Save yourself from a little disappointment. 😉
