I still remember when Cracked was Mad Magazine’s wannabe competitor. Today, though, Cracked’s biggest contribution to society is assembling important lists. For example, they have this list of five songs that will kill a party–something that might come in handy around 4am when you want the stranglers to leave.
I, however, noticed a glaring omission: anything from Captain Beefheart’s 1969, er, masterpiece, Trout Mask Replica. This is disagreeable music for people who enjoy being disagreeable. Put on this record and you’ll be alone within seven minutes or your money back.
For your convenience, I’ve posted the entire album here. Best of luck.
