Another week, another Mercury music section to read while you purchase this classy painting of Dimebag Darrell's murder. Classy!
DRUGS ARE GOOD! Mean Jeans party hard and worship Joey Ramone. Hey dudes, here's a hint: When trying to expense report cocaine purchases, put it under the "mileage" category. Duh.
Mean Jeans - "Born on a Saturday Night"
DRUGS ARE BAD! From heroin to Hüsker Dü, the life of Grant Hart has included plenty of tough breaks, but he is back, armed with an excellent solo recording.
Grant Hart - "Barbara"
CULTS ARE BAD! A survivor of the Children of God cult, Christopher Owens talks about his odd upbringing (flirty fishing!), and fronting the hyped-up rock act, Girls.
Girls - "Lust for Life"
End Hits: What did we learn today? Drugs are good, until they are not good anymore, and God is evil. Yeah, sounds about right.
