I am finally done with this disgusting cough, with leaving snotty tissues all over my house. But since most of my friends are still hacking away, I felt inspired to make a sick mix. It turns out grunge has a lot of references to cough syrup and being sick without making the whole song about it, but the Ramones win the prize for most lovable straight-up illness songs. Being sick is really punk!
Here's what I came up with:
"You Sound Like You're Sick" - The Ramones
"Touch Me I'm Sick" - Mudhoney
"Hospital" - The Lemonheads
"Amoeba" - The Adolescents
"Fever to Tell" - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
"Cough/Cool" - The Misfits
"Nausea" - X
"Fever" - The Cramps
"I Wanna Be Well" - The Ramones
I made the artistic decision to leave out "Down With The Sickeness," by the Disturbed. Any More?
