Filter have always been able to pack just the right dose of anger and melody into the same song.
Who could forget "Hey Man, Nice Shot" or "Welcome to the Fold," they were about as pissed off and passionate as rock music gets. However, Filter mainman Richard Patrick is as fired up as he's ever been on the band's most recent offering, Anthems for the Damned, a scathing and soulful slab of rock.
Richard Patrick decided to share his playlist with ARTISTdirect.com in this exclusive feature. Check out what he's spinning below!
Richard Patrick's Playlist:
1. Deftones — "Feiticeira"
I find Chino's sense of melody astounding.
2. U2 — "The Unforgettable Fire"
U2 has always been a huge inspiration to me, and this is one of their grand achievements.
3. Jane's Addiction — "Three Days"
Having toured with Jane's Addiction, this brings back tremendous memories.
4. Radiohead — "Everything In Its Right Place"
I Love the Fender Rhoads on this.
5. Ministry — "You Know What You Are"
The inspiration behind Nine Inch Nails and Filter.
6. Patsy Cline — "Sweet Dreams (of You)"
Al Jourgensen once told me her sense of vocal control is amazing, and I agree.
7. Neil Diamond — "And the Grass Won't Pay No Mind"
My father played Neil Diamond records when I was growing up, and that is a huge reason why I make music today.
8. Air — "La Femme D'Argent"
Always good on a Sunday afternoon.
9. The Beatles — "The Long and Winding Road"
A wedding song.
10. Veruca Salt — "Sick as Your Secrets"
Louise Post is an amazing artist, and I have the utmost respect for her.
