If you're looking for an awesome song you haven't heard before you are in the right place. This site represents a playlist systematically designed to maximize AWESOMENESS by meeting the following critera:

  • It's AWESOME.
  • It's fairly obscure. This is obviously a subjective standard, but I don't want songs that everyone's heard no matter how awesome.
  • You can listen to it right now online for free.

Love Will Tear Us Apart

Joy Division

I've been debating about whether this song is "obscure" enough to include in the playlist, but it's certainly less well-known than some I've included. Plus I figured I couldn't have an "angst-fest" without some Joy Division. Also I remember seeing this video on VH1 Classic or some such about a year ago and having my mind blown that there was a video, so it can't be that pervasive.

these guys started it all for many

Many artists including Smith of The Cure and Bono have indicated that this band started it all for them.

"Agnst" ain't got nothin' on Ian Curtis. He invented it. Too bad he left this world too early. RIP.

The 2007 movie "Control" may be of interest.


It's a shame, although I will say there are plenty of New Order songs I enjoy as well. Even though Joy Division was amazing and I would have loved to have heard more from them, I'm not a purist who hates on New Order.
