I've mentioned before my HS girlfriend's taste in music leaned very far into R & B, while mine...did not. This post is a perfect microcosm of our fights for control of the radio. There is a 100% chance that Sybil & Frank Black were played back to back in that car at some point.

P.S. Frank Black riding around on a hovercraft? Yes please!

I saw Ash play in 2000? 2001? at a festival in DC. I still have that concert T-shirt. It says "Rebel Scum" on it. It has travelled with me for over 20 years.

So glad you remembered Joyrider, their cover of Rush Hour was definitely the soundtrack to a summer and, if I'm remembering correctly, they also used to do a killer live version of Madonna's Like A Prayer Too. Right, I'm off to blast Troublegum!!
