Last 5 Itunes Downloads

1. "Pork and Beans" - Weezer. The new single from the band's forthcoming (June 3) album is great. Classic crunchy layered power chords with great lyrics and vocals from Rivers Cuomo. Weezer songs really hit the spot. Best lyric: "Oakley makes the shades that transform a tool."

2. "Psycho" - Puddle of Mudd. This group had a decent hit with "Blurry", and they have a cool post-grunge sound. Lead singer Wes Scantlin has a Kurt-ish voice, and this song has a great "Maybe I'm the one" chorus and guitars. Worst video ever, though.

3. "So Cold" (Acoustic) - Breaking Benjamin. Not technically a download since this version isn't available, but I have been searching for this acoustic version forever and finally found it. Great song, brilliant in acoustic. Gets great at 3:22.

4. "Viva La Vida" - Coldplay. The first single from the band's forthcoming (June 1) fourth album. Not available to listen to yet unless you buy it, so go here for another song "Violet Hill" from the new album. Sounds a little hokey, actually -can't make my mind up yet. Relevant tour dates: 11/19 - Dallas; 11/18 Houston; 7/9 KC; 7/10 OKC (Tix on sale tomorrow).

5. "Supernatural Superserious" - REM. The biggest single from the 2008 album from the eponymous rockers. A rocker by REM standards. Haven't listened to it enough yet for full analysis.
