#WhenIRunOutOfStuffToSay Album List 2016

bu Joshua B. Hoe One of my hobbies is playing Hashtag Games on Twitter.

Every once in a while I combine my passions for # games and music together.

Today, there was the hashtag - #WhenIRunOutOfStuffToSay

For those that don't play the Hashtag Games, basically you are supposed to respond by filling in what you would do "When you run out of stuff to say"

So I did a series around the following response:

#WhenIRunOutOfStuffToSay I just hold up album covers you should listen to

I tried to pick new and old albums that I feel are under-appreciated and that people might really love listening to (assuming the share my sensibilities.

Here is the series of Tweets and covers:

The "Grand Daddy" of them all for me, because this is where alternative music started for me way back in the early 80's.

Not even close to an all-inclusive list, but pretty good for off the top of my head. I am already sad I didn't include Fugazi or Minor Threat.

Virtually all of these albums are available for previewing free on Spotify, I have also included an Itunes link as well (these bands are NOT the multimillionaires).

Enjoy!

Postscript: One of the bands I included in the original list was Dilly Dally:

Dilly Dally - Sore

And, I also included Gentleman, the amazing album by Afghan Whigs, how did I forget to include that in the first version? Not sure:
