My October #NotbyU2 Song Challenge Results

Happy Halloween to everyone, and Happy Birthday to Larry Mullen, Jr.

Here are my Hashtag-Not-By-U2 Song Challenge installments, which varied (per usual) depending on the curious (and often highly unfortunate) omissions from Instagram’s music catalog. Here is the matrix:

  1. The Lawrence Arms – “October Blood”
  2. Kendrick Lamar – “Backseat Freestyle”
  3. The Gregory Brothers feat. Antoine Dodson – “Bed Intruder Song”
  4. Blur – “Sunday Sunday”
  5. Lou Reed – “Perfect Day”
  6. Avail – “Nameless”
  7. Mineral – “Gloria”
  8. Oppenheimer – “Fireworks are Illegal in the State of New Jersey” (Northern Ireland got a ton of love across social media on this one)
  9. Blur – “Look Inside America”
  10. The Dismemberment Plan – “You are Invited”
  11. Rammstein – “Der Meister” (The same six guys for 25 years, which is more impressive than ZZ Top being the same 3 for 50. And I love ZZ Top).
  12. Black Flag – “Spray Paint”
  13. Eric B. and Rakim – “Follow the Leader”
  14. The Lillingtons – “I Don’t Think She Cares”
  15. Clinic – “Walking with Thee”

  17. Ella Fitzgerald – “Drop Me off in Harlem”
  18. Camera Obscura – “Happy New Year”
  19. The Dead Milkmen – “Going to Graceland”
  20. Roy Orbison – “Crying”
  21. Jimmy Eat World – “23”
  22. Aphex Twin – “Flim”
  23. The Magnetic Fields – “Strange Powers”
  24. The Replacements – “Kiss Me on the Bus”
  25. Girls Against Boys – “Super-fire”
  26. Yazoo – “Don’t Go”
  27. Rancid – “Up to No Good”
  28. David Lee Roth – “Yankee Rose (Spanish Version)” (never forget there is a whole album of this)
  29. The Dollyrots – “Jackie Chan”
  30. Goo Goo Dolls – “On Your Side” (It’s so easy to forget these guys were so good, they were worthy of the title “poor man’s Replacements”).

If you participated, thanks for participating! If you just stopped by to read this and see what songs I picked while half-asleep each day, thanks for stopping by. Watch a great spooky movie tonight, and come back TOMORROW AT 9AM for your November song-a-day challenge.
