Click to listen to Cobra Skulls' 'Solastalgia'

Reno, Nevada punk rockers Cobra Skulls can barely suppress their rage for our culture's treatment of the environment on "Solastalgia," a heavy cut from their third album, Agitations. "Sure, we recycle and carry reusable bags, bottles and cups, but we still feel like the bastards in power are spiting us and robbing us of a world that gives life, but not as fast as we take it away," says frontman Devin Peralta. Agitations will hit stores on September 27th, but you can download the song for free here.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
