    "Teen Town" (Marcus' slapped version)& "Power" by Marcus does it for me.

    You should play your bass and kick a plugged in guitar at the same time.

    Also, while that guitar is rockin', throw samples of Hitler overtop... it will be industrial.

    Song 2 by Blur. You get to act bored while the guitar plays the "girlie man" parts. Maybe drink some beer. Then blow them away with the distorted bass parts. He he he. I like to use the Phat-Hed set to "evil" :bassist: It is played way too clean on the album.

    Sorry, I didn't mean that. What I really ment was: "it is a good ensemble piece".

  11. Stu Hamm's arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner was fun back when I knew it.
