Listen: Podcast, no8

Pleasing To Your Ears

Rick Rubin! Rick Rubin! Rick Rubin! An abbreviated, spotty, grossly inadequate career retrospective of America's greatest producer of the last 20 years. We got old school hip hop, we got metal, we got country, we got pop. Rick Rubin does it all. Meditate on these tracks, motherfucker:
"Rock the Bells" by LL Cool J
"Brass Monkey" by The Beastie Boys
"Raising Hell" by Run-D.M.C.
"Postmortem" by Slayer
"Wildflowers" by Tom Petty
"Otherside" by Red Hot Chili Peppers
"Renegades of Funk" by Rage Against the Machine
"Toxicity" by System of a Down
"Inertiatic Esp" by Mars Volta
"99 Problems" by Jay-Z
"Beverly Hills" by Weezer
"Delirious Love" by Neil Diamond
"The Long Way Around" by The Dixie Chicks
"God's Gonna Cut You Down" by Johnny Cash
