Calling all fans of The Stooges! Rock On Philly is giving away 60 pairs of tickets to a special advance screening of “Gimme Danger,” a documentary by Jim Jarmusch that looks back at the musical legacy of this legendary rock band.

Now, this is the same magazine that told you John Cougar Mellencamp, Sting and Jackson Browne all had some of the 100 best albums of the 1980s and Black Flag and Minor Threat did not, so it’d be understandable if you don’t care what they think the best punk albums of all time are, but this list is actually rock solid…

Monday Playlist: Founding Fathers Mix!

Source: Rock On Philly

If our Founding Fathers had a band, it would be inspired by this rocking playlist! At the time of the American Revolution, our forefathers were intelligent, young, and rebellious… which only means one thing: punk rock! The perfect mix of angsty music for the anarchist within would be inspiring for some rebels while starting their own government, don’t you think?

Just take it from The Clash!
