No Future – Blink-182 – If this had any less to do with the Sex Pistols howl of indignation at a country where the young might have never held a job in their life, it would have to be a different song and band. This is some lost  love song and despite a nice lick in the intro, it is horrible; the nanannas failing miserably  – C

Everybody We Know Does – Chase Rice – This isn’t country or bromance or modern county production pop styling, it is all of them and it sucks – D+

Middle Names – Devendra Banhart – Musical xanax, calms you and pouts you to sleep – D+

All My Children – Gucci Mane – Southern rapper was on the verge of world conquest but he couldn’t keep out of prison, this is his great return and rap fans will eat it up but the rest of world… maybe that hook isn’t gonna do it – B

Sucker For Pain – Lil Wayne – On the other hand, this song is aiming is straight to the charts, Weezy is joined by Wiz and Ty Dolla $ign and Imagine Dragon and it sounds nearly exactly what you think it would. Terrible – D+

Drug Dealers Anonymous – Pusha T – The Jay Z verse is excellent, reminds you just how great the man is, but the song is the opposite of Weezy, it misses the hook to make it big. Still that Hov verse is worth the price of admission.

We’re All Somebody From Somewhere – Steven Tyler – Please God, make him stop. No idea how this country blues workout will be met by the 99%, for me? Tyler sings it well, but the song is a horror – C

Rest In Peace – Yellowcard – The definition of atrocious modern rock and roll. It desecrates rock’s memory – D
