Musical Refreshments

So you are shuffling through your ipod, cd player, tape collection (yes some of us still listen to them) and you realize that you have not changed your music selection in god knows how long. Tired of listening to the same 800 songs over and over again? Well, for those looking to rejuvenate their music selection, here's one of our poll winner suggestions that can refresh that musical monotone.


First up is N.E.R.D, aka No one Ever Really Dies. Now if this band sounds vaguely familiar, it should; Remember a sweet little diddy called "Lapdance" gentlemen? How about the infamous high school student anthem "Rockstar?" Those two songs were from N*E*R*D's first album  In Search Of..., released in 2001. You probably already know one of the co-founders, Pharrell Williams, from his work withchildhood friend Chad Hugo as the duo the Neptunes. Since their formation in the early 90's, the Neptunes have worked with artists such as Gwen Stefani, Daft Punk, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, and Jay-Z. Pharrell, Chad, and their friend Shay decided to start their own side band in 2001 and thus N*E*R*D was born! Some people define N*E*R*D's music as Hip-Hop, Funk, and Rock, but even that would be to specifically defined for this band. Their music is TANG for your ears and if you're listening to it you will not need Red Bull to give you wings; it's music that ranges from mellow to rhythmically intoxicating and it covers all sorts of topics life has to offer. The trio has three albums under their belt: In Search of..., Fly or Die..., and Seeing Sounds. Their fourth album, Nothing, will be released in November of this year. Until then, follow the links above and below to get a taste of the awesomeness they've been brewing for more than a decade and here's their Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N.E.R.D


"Maybe" Fly or Die

"Sooner or Later" Seeing Sounds
"Everyone Nose (All the Girls Standing in the Line for the Bathroom)" Seeing Sounds

"Hot 'N' Fun" Nothing
