Marianas Trench and Down With Webster both hail from Canada, so we decided to put the bands together for a new PropertyOfZack Playlist feature. Check out their Playlists below while listening to the songs on Spotify and reading everyone’s thoughts!
Drake – Started From The Bottom
It hasn’t, but we fucking love it. Why? Because we started from the bottom.
Queen- Bohemian Rhapsody
Harmonies, controlled chaos, Freddy Mercury’s amazing vocal chops, Wayne’s World.
Beach Boys – God Only Knows
Brian Wilson is a musical genius. This is one of the most beautiful songs ever written, the chord progression is just fantastic. If I had written this song, I would have walked away from music forever. Masterpiece created. Done.
Foo Fighters – Everlong
Hard driving rock edge and the best damn guitar sounds ever. This song is bursting with organic energy and we strive to rock like that every night.
blink-182 – What’s My Age Again?
Crisp, clean, pop punk at its finest. And a wonderful, hilarious song. We definitely try to incorporate this humour in our videos and real life as well.
Jellyfish – All Is Forgiven
Incredible vocal stacks and a mind bogglingly awesome lead vocal, definitely one of Josh’s biggest influences.
The Police – King of Pain
Such an emotional and haunting song, sting is an incredible writer and will forever be an idol of ours.
Matthew Good Band – Load Me Up
Just a favourite amongst the four of us. The record, beautiful midnight, has been on repeat in our bus for years.
Dire Straits – Money For Nothing
The inspiration lies within the lyrics.
Toto - Rosanna
Our most recent pre-show warmup track, just gets the blood pumping and the juices flowing?
Limp Bizkit - Nookie
Because we did it all for the …cookie.
AC/DC – Rock N Roll Train *Song is not on Spotify
Theme album for the drive to LA to record tracks for Masterpiece Theatre. Plus it’s our daily soundcheck jam track.
Def Leppard - Animal
Because their one armed drummer is better than our two armed drummer.
Aerosmith – Sweet Emotion
Aerosmith worked at Josh’s dads studio when he was a kid and inspired him to become a musician. Josh still has one of Steven Tyler’s harmonicas.
Wang Chung – Dance Hall Days
Because it makes Mike get loosey goosey and snap his fingers, which the rest of us find enjoyable.
Busta Rhymes – Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check
I first heard this song in grade 3 (lol) and I was instantly obsessed with it. I couldn’t make out most of the words but the energy was just amazing. This song made me fall in love with/ want to rap. I had to hide it from my parents though due to language and subject matter not suitable for a third grader:)
Rage Against The Machine - Bulls On Parade
This song made me realize that rap could be done with a live band in an amazing, bad ass way. Also, my dad supported me listening to these guys which was rare. Years later I saw rage perform it live in New York and it blew my mind. Too good.
Wu-Tang Clan - Reunited
This song made me fall in love with the idea of multiple vocalists sharing one song. I Love how each verse is different and the spooky violin sample is awesome. Reminds me of skateboarding downtown Toronto at night as a kid.
