I know it has been a while since I have posted a Song of the week, but here it is. I owe the choice for this week to a fantastic website, The Labyrinth of Genre, that allows you to choose any genre you can think of, and it will subdivide it into smaller genres so that you can get the ideal song. This is “For Your Love” by The Yardbirds, a band I consider to be one of the greatest yet underappreciated rock bands of all time. They graduated Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, and Eric Clapton, all of whom went on to possibly become the greatest guitarists of all time. You can read more about The Yardbirds in The British Invasion, Part 4, which will be published later this week.

Mad Genius is an organization that takes news events and soundbytes about them and turns them into songs. THis is one of their crrepiest songs, “Someone’s Screaming Outside” about the shooting of Treyvon Martin. If you want to know more, listen to this radio program:

Note: I’m planning on writing a full article more about Mad Genius in the future, because I find them very interesting. Stay tuned!
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m not a big fan of pop music. I think that it is a pile of crap. But I’ll write about that later. “Carry on My Wayward Son” by Kansas is one of my favorite classic rock songs. I was first introduced to this song a couple of years ago when participating in an air band contest. I have loved Kansas ever since.
This is the song “So Far Away” by Avenged Sevenfold. I especially like this song because it is a departure from what other genres this band has produced (metal, hard rock).

Savior by Rise Against. Rise Against is personally one of my favorite hard core rock bands, and I think this is one of their best songs. Plus, they’re from my hometown. Go Chicago! This is from the album “Appeal to Reason” (2009).
Song of the Week. New Born by Muse from the album The Resistance (2009).
