The Used main man Bert McCracken is always listening to something.
Right now, he's got Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes turned up to 11 in his living room, and he's rocking out to it with a big smile. However, Bert's full playlist is extremely eclectic to say the least. What's he listening to other than Ed Sharpe? Well, Bert fired up his iTunes and scrolled up and down for ARTISTdirect.com giving us a look at the tunes that inspire him on a daily basis.
Check out Bert's playlist below and be sure to pick up The Used's latest album Artwork when it drops September 1st, 2009.
Bert McCracken's Playlist:
1. Taking Back Sunday — New Again
I love the new Taking Back Sunday record! The lyrics are really cool!
2. Gallows — Grey Britain
3. Harper Simon
I like the new Harper Simon record. He's Paul Simon's kid. It's great.
4. Killing Joke — Killing 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. Mastodon — Crack 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.
