So in accordance with the hopes that the yanks beat down on the sox today, today’s hatin on monday well be music about or from Boston. Since I’m leaving for the game in 20 min, I wont give you much about the songs, instead it’ll be just about the music.
First, a song that I’m sure everyone knows. Whether you know it from the best sports video game ever created, MVP Baseball 2005, from “Fever Pitch”, or from any Red Sox game you attended last decade, this is a quintessential Red Sox song, and so as good as it is, I must hate it.
Next, we have a classic track from Boston native Guru (R.I.P.) and DJ Premier, or for those of you who might be a little slow, Gang Starr. The song isn’t about Boston, but its a classic nonetheless.
Lastly, we have a tribute to everyone’s favorite indie-ish hipster All In My Head writer, thatyoungknockoutkid or as he’s better known, Harlan Schwartz, who recently admitted to me how much he loved this band, who happens to rep Worcester, MA. I think we can all agree that this song is just really, um, unique. Catchy as shit, prepare to hum it all day.
