    Bert McCracken's Playlist:

    1. Taking Back SundayNew Again

    I love the new Taking Back Sunday record! The lyrics are really cool!

    2. GallowsGrey Britain

    3. Harper Simon

    I like the new Harper Simon record. He's Paul Simon's kid. It's great.

    4. Killing JokeKilling Joke

    I've been listening to the self-titled Killing Joke record over and over. That's one of my favorite records. Dave Grohl played on it.

    5. MastodonCrack the Skye

    I'm listening to the new Mastodon record, Crack the Skye a lot.

    6. Elliott Smith

    I'm always listening to a lot of Elliot Smith.

    7. Sunny Day Real Estate

    8. Texas is the Reason

    9. The Misfits

    I love The Misfits!

    10. Ink & Dagger
    R If you love The Misfits, you'd love Ink & Dagger! They're a vampire punk rock band from Philadelphia but they're like thrash. The singer died in '98, but they were awesome. They'd set up a Christmas tree on stage and throw up on it. They'd huff gas and eat acid before they went on stage. They were the raddest band—punk rock to the core. They were vampires and shit with full makeup.

    —Rick Florino
