Holiday Cold Remedy: Thrash Metal

My formula for fighting this Wintertime head cold: Green tea with honey, NyQuil/DayQuil combo, rest, and the shredding guitars of Dave Mustaine, Dimebag Darrell, and Scotty Ian.

Precision metal from Dave & Co. from Roskilde Festival 92.

Phil, Dime, Rex & Vinnie at their absolute brutal best, Monsters of Rock 1991, Moscow. A record that changed everything in metal, and made seemingly well-adjusted teenagers want to break things.

"Wake up dead in a plywood bed, 6 feet from the rest of your life
And when you couldn't see your own dependency....N.F.L. Nice Fuckin' Life."

They don't make 'em like they used to.
