This weekend I attended a party, the mood was good, and some old friends made a turn which turned out to be quite an enjoyable experience. The only downside was the awful play list, it was a horrid mix of metal that had little to no diversity. A full blast of Cradle of Filth and some other obscure death metal bands I have never heard off infiltrated my ears and almost made me throw up. Fuck it was a tedious bunch of shit to say the least.

But people don’t fret; we got saved by some good ol’ music. That’s why we are all here, so I can enlighten you on what can essentially make or break a party. The music that make people happy and brings a delightful drunken mood to any get-together, and not want to stick a screwdriver through your ears. And in no specific order at all.

Turn up that shit, it's banging
