      this song was written in the eighties but i recall it being re-released in the early 90's great song
    • 5. Bloke by Chris Franklin
      very funny parody of popular 90's pop song 'Bitch' its pretty much about an aussie bloke who "lives on beer and pies" extremly funny if you've never heard it, try to listen to this one.

      off the Godzilla soundtrack really good rocky song
    • 3. The Distance by Cake
      Great Driving song just like all their songs
