Each Monday I like to take a look at a piece of media that stands out to me. This could be anything from an episode of a TV show or cartoon or just an album I think you should enjoy.

This week allow your ears to enjoy the sounds of Operation Ivy

Artist: Operation Ivy

Album: Operation Ivy

Song Selection: The Crowd

Last week’s selection was filled with mellow beats, but this week I decided to raise energy factor. Operation Ivy was and still is an extremely influential band that infused punk with ska and introduced a lot of people to Tim Armstrong, before he was in Rancid. People think of punk music as sounding like gutter punk music, which isn’t bad, but listening to this album you’ll realize that this is pretty upbeat music. The reason why I picked this album is just for the fact that you can put it on and have a good workout just based on the guitar riffs, picking and power chords carry this album.
