Going to be in a training tomorrow so I figured I'd throw 2 up on here so I'd actually be ahead instead of behind.

Pure Rock Fury. This track is not only the best track on this album but a song that really emphasizes what Clutch really is. Probably not a better 3 word description than this song. It's one of Clutch's best grooves that they ever wrote with even better lyrics to back it up. I can't believe that it took me until 2010 to ever get to hear this live. I think I saw them atleast 3 or 4 times before hearing this but whoa when I heard it, one of the hardest rockin songs I ever heard. KILLER GROVE if there ever was one.

If there was ever a dark horse in this whole countdown it would have to be Green Buckets. Easily a hidden gem on Elephant Riders. One of their oddest sounding yet funkiest songs with a bass sound best described as rubbery, with some of the best lyrics in any Clutch song. I wanted to put a line or 2 but screw it, my list I'm posting the whole songs lyrics:

Won't you come over and stay for a while?
Take a seat, have a drink, we'd have a nice time.
Turn on the TV I believe it's prime time.
I'll make you chicken cacciatore in five.
There's a woman down at 314
who can't keep the stains on her kitchen floor clean.
And there's a man who's been knockin' on his door
for three years, or has it been four?
I don't wanna spend the winter in this house all alone.
Those neighbors of mine keep coming on over and playing with my mind.
I would like to love you,
I sure would treat you right.
We could take the trash out
every Thursday night.
Here in my neighborhood there is the strangest thing -
green buckets every Friday at every driveway.
They're filled with glasses, plastics, and newspapers, too.
They say they recycle and bring them back to you.
I would like to love you,
I sure would treat you right.
We could take the trash out
every Thursday night.
We could be a family,
consume many goods.
We could be the pillars
of the neighborhood.
Ah babe, I'm a real hard worker
with the proper tools, I'll make you anything you yearn for.
The barbarians are at the gate,
come in before it's too late.
I have food enough to last the two of us about a year.
A thousand cans of chowder and a thousand cans of beer.
I love my neighbors like I love my own brothers,
but every year they're getting odder and odder.
I would like to love you,
I sure would treat you right.
We could take the trash out
every Thursday night.
We could be a family,
consume many goods.
We could be the pillars
of the neighborhood.

Just great lyrics. My only complaint (according to setlist.fm) they last played this back in '99. Dammit Clutch, one of my favorite songs off Elephant Riders. I know I'm not the only one who loves this song. Bring it back Clutch!!!! Its been 14 years!!!!!!!
