When not busy hosting "Alternative Mornings" on the weekdays and his wildly creative "Bottom Forty" specialty show (Sundays, 8-10 pm) on 94.7 FM, Greg Glover somehow manages to find the time to run well-respected indie label Arena Rock Recording Company. If all that wasn't enough, Greg was kind enough to dip into his ample record collection and make us this bridge-burning mix tape, "Songs That I Hate, By Bands That You Love."
Nirvana, "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
Captain Beefheart, "Ella Guru"
We all own Trout Mask Replica, but if you actually listen to it, you're trying too hard.
Sonic Youth, "Teen Age Riot"
Deerhoof, "Milk Man"
All 15 of you who own this record, swear by it. OK, I rest my case.
Devendra Banhart, "Owl Eyes"
The Smiths, "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore"
One punch is all it would have taken to hook Marr up with Liam and Noel, and then they could have formed a real rock band.
Arcade Fire, "Wake Up"
Talking Heads? Even if David Byrne likes them, it's the equivalent of Mick Jagger's blessing of the Warlocks.
The Maroon 5 of alternative rock.
Weezer, "Pink Triangle"
Cat Power, "American Flag"
Slint, "Good Morning Captain"
Joy Division, "Love Will Tear Us Apart"
Who needs 'em? We got Interpol.
