Why I love Cheap Trick - 24
Alright, it's time for 2009's The Latest. Holy s**t. This album is probably their best since the 70s. I don't think I'm kidding. This album shows that they can still rock! I mean, the bass line in "Sick Man of Europe" is... sick! That's just it. That describes the whole album. They have their share of beautiful songs and rocking, kick-a** songs on the album. Overall, it's just a masterpiece. It truly is. It should be Exhibit A as to why they need to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Plus, the album cover is pretty funny. Bun E., Robin, and Tom are walking around in the sand with metal detectors, and Rick is sticking out of the sand with a big smile on his face. I truly will be looking forward to their next studio album.


"California Man" (1978)
"Heaven Tonight" (1978) - Haunting and epic, with Tom's sweet bass line.
"Come on Come on" (1977)
"Way of the World" (1979)
"Go For the Throat (Use Your Imagination)" (1980)
"Smile" (2009)
"I Want you to Want Me" (1978) - The Budokan live version.

1988's Lap of Luxury. AKA the triumphant return of Tom Petersson.



In the rain and still rocking.

Yes, they are protected by the Dream Police, so be careful.

I love his puppets.

These are great songs mentioned here.

They're so pure.

Alright, is Rick Nielsen giving himself a high-five with one of those slap-hand-things?

Rachel Ray and Rick Nielsen.

Gotta take a break every once in a while, right?

Now, this is random. Very random.
