In Southern California in the 1980s, KROQ had this weird un-DJ-like guy named (seriously) Rodney Bingenheimer, who came on late at night on Sundays and played punk records and new bands like Blondie, The Ramones, X, Joan Jett, Devo and Cheap Trick. Did this weirdo really have some influence? A 90-minute 2004 documentary now on YouTube, Mayor of the Sunset Strip (Part 1) tells his story, and it's weirder than you may have imagined. [more inside]

The Bad Touch by The Bloodhound Gang. I love it and KROQ is playing it pretty much every hour, so if they haven't already been labeled loser-sellout-musicians-non-gratia they will be soon. Musically, I'm the kiss of death.
