The featured image came through my Facebook feed from the Alice in Chains page about a week ago.  It is for the Louder Than Life 2018 Festival.  I saved the image off for this post; yeah it is a bit busy so if you can’t read the bands, here’s the lineup.  One thing immediately jumps out at me.  Fucking Limp Bizkit should not be side by side on a poster with Alice in Chains for any reason.  That whole poster is so mouth-wateringly cool (I mean, Kentucky is really not that far) until you see that big turd in the center-top of the poster.  Limp Bizkit must have one hell of a promoter, WTF?

Then, yesterday, I find out a close family member is doing sound for the AiC tour and could get me on the list for tickets.  Wow.  I whined a bit on the phone about it, of course.  They are NOT coming to Atlanta, but a trip to Austin, Denver or Houston could be really fun.  Alas, I am going to see my Dad in LA in September and that is the absolute last drop of traveling time and money that we possess at the moment.

It is OK, I have seen them four times, both with Staley and DuVall.  Anyone who hasn’t seen them live should absolutely do so if they can.  They put on a hell of a show.

So, let’s play songs from the Louder Than Life 2018  lineup.  Again, if you can’t see all of the bands from the featured image, here’s the lineup.

Here is this week’s playlist:

I started us out with an analysis of AiC’s Them Bones I caught not long ago as recommended by YouTube.

Here are your dedications:

Grendel – House Of The Rising Sun

Lurking – She’s a Mystery

Santino – Devil In Disguise

ilovecress – Row Your Boat

WVR – A Quick Death in Texas

Thrill – You’re Going Down

Kevinmkr – Torn in Two


  1. Loud? I used to crank this in my TJ Wrangler with dual 10 inch subs. The bass was a bit overwhelming: NIN – Down In It

    Ooohh…Breaking Benjamin. I could do an entire set.

    I Will Not Bow

    Until The End

    Dance With The Devil

    Diary of Jane

    Bush! The only thing I ever won on the radio was a copy of Sixteen Stone, and a bonsai tree. When I went to pick them up, they didn’t have the tree. I was pissed. But enjoyed the CD. Anyway – Comedown

    It’s G&R, but it’s by far my favorite song that Slash ever played. November Rain

    Skillet – Feel Invincible

    Seether – Broken

    Guess that’s a good start.

  2. I was out of town for AIC’s show in Toronto earlier this spring. They played in a theatre, would have been interesting to see a rock band in a theatre setting.

    Monster Magnet – Negasonic Teenage Warhead –

    Primus – Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver –

    The one song I like from Limp Bizkit – Faith –

    Alice in Chains – Would –

    Not loud, but Bush – Glycerine –

  3. They played in a theatre, would have been interesting to see a rock band in a theatre setting.

    I got to thinking about venues and I actually saw them five times, almost always in small venues but I forgot about them opening for Anthrax in the Clash of the Titans tour. They were at the Omni before they tore it down for the Georgia Dome, which they just recently tore down for the Mercedes Stadium. I AM FUCKING OLD. This would have been touring for Facelift and everyone just stood and stared at them.

    Speaking of old, check out Jerry Cantrell in this, another recommended by YouTube:

    “No chick is going to fuck you to a Rush song” –

    Dirt –

  4. Guess that’s a good start.

    We are off to a great start! Especially seeing as this is as close as I am going to get to this festival 🙂 …

  5. “No chick is going to fuck you to a Rush song”

    I like this one better.

    It took me longer to get my first wife to go to a Rush concert than it did to try anal.

    Brilliant! I didn’t know Cantrell was a comedian as well.

  6. No chick is going to fuck you to a Rush song

    For the record, this is simply incorrect. At least, it was in my case. Those guys in “Dad Band”? No chick is going to f*ck them to ANY song, bro.
