There hasn’t been a lot of rock music on the countdown lately, but that changes this week. We’ve got a fleet of punk bands trying out genre experiments and some others sticking to tried-and-true power chords. Even Lars Ulrich’s son makes an appearance. So, crank it up, and let out some aggression.
10. Blue Sky Black Death – “Keys”
Seattle production duo Blue Sky Black Death just released the mostly instrumental LP Glaciers this week, but one-off single “Keys” sees them teamed with a host of emcees. Gucci Mane, Deniro Farrar, Nacho Picasso, and Mack Shine all drop rhymes on this dark, bass-heavy track, a far cry from the cinematic strings and sweeping moments of Glaciers. –Jon Hadusek
