JODSGN Mix Tape | Nirvana

nirvana_mixtape

We’ve got Nirvana on our minds lately, awaiting the release of the new Kurt Cobain doc, “Cobain: Montage of Heck.” So here’s a mix of tunes from our favorite “fudge packing, crack smoking, satan worshipping motherfuckers,” (or “flower sniffin’, kitty pettin’, baby kissin’ corporate rock whores,” if you dig censorship). They’re thoroughly alright and decent

JODSGN Mix Tape | 2002-A

2002a

Let’s flashback to 2002, and some of our favorite events, as listed on Wikipedia: Rapper C-Murder was arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder. Wow, a rapper who wasn’t frontin.’ The contents were pretty much written right on the label. Festival goers in Portugal just couldn’t abide the Nickelback, and pelted them with bottles and

JODSGN Mix Tape | 1988-A

1988a

1988, an era of skinny jeans, high-top sneakers, big-ass sunglasses, leggings, and neon colors (Fuuuuck, what year is this, then!!??). Like those fashions, many of the artists on this playlist have had a lasting influence, even though they were in mostly fringe, rising-from-the-underground, or soon-to-explode genres.

Punk rock was still enjoying a major resurgence. Hip hop was influencing areas of metal, spawning NuMetal, and gearing up for massive mainstream success. A new

JODSGN Mix Tape | 1972-A

1972a

It’s 1972, the Hippies are hungover, Motown moves to L.A., and the Stones are coming out of exile after avoiding a MASSIVE taxation rate of 75% on top British earners in the early ’70s (We Love Our Queen… God Saves). The ’60s are dead, but lucky for us, good music doesn’t die. Fuzzy Fact: In

JODSGN Mix Tape | Mack Dawg Punk Mix

Mack Dawg Productions‘ influence on snowboarding is insane.  Mike McEntire(a.k.a. Mack Dawg) along with Brad Kremer, have influenced generations of snowboarders with their films. Captuing the world’s best riders, shot across the globe, the videos always had great music. So we figured we’d pick a few of our favourites from the punkish side of things for
