Most of these “Music is my imaginary friend” posts are just me passing along songs that I like, and that I hope you’ll like too. But sometimes, they offer a window into the mind of your favorite blogger.
When I was 10, I desperately wanted the Spider-Man “Maximum Carnage” video game for Sega Genesis. It was rated MA, which is like, the most violent, so I had to haggle and bargain with my mom to get her to buy it for me. So that summer, I wound up painting the foundation to the house, and the garage. It was onerous and back-breaking labor for a 10-year-old, but I did it.
It was worth every second. “Maximum Carnage” was awesome! You could play as Venom! I probably played it as much as any other video game I ever owned. (I may have played Sonic 3 more, but that’s because that was the greatest video game ever made. Yeah, I said it.) A big part of the appeal was the awesome metal soundtrack, by the band Green Jelly (formerly Green Jello.) Below is the intro to the game, followed by the actual Green Jelly track. If there’s a more intense pump-up track for a game, I’ve never heard it.
If you ever want to endeavor to know what it’s like to live inside my head, you’ll listen to these.
