Yeah they aren't that great but the song "famous last words" is ridiculous. When you first hear it, it is stupid. Then it gets kind of great. Then it gets absurdly stupid again.
I hate it and hate it and hate it but I like listening to it. It, um, drives me insane.

A different variation on the theme: Martha Stewart's Halloween CD is guaranteed to invoke some sort of dysfunctional reaction. Yikes.

And 'Leslie and the Ly's' is autofacepunch twisted as well. Etc.

Then play My War in the aftermath - it's pretty much made for those types of situations. When the adrenaline and the violent rage gives out, and all you're left with is self-hatred, helpless rage, and enervated depression.

Today Is The Day Willpower

Earth Extra-Capsular Extraction

Some personal favorites.

Also: "Boris" as performed by Melvins.

Hmm...never really heard ANY of these except for isolated songs off Hairway To Steven...however, "Jimi" is what is known as fucking tripballs benzene-sniff freakout in excelsis. Total. Mindfuck. Paul Leary's guitar hero status is cemented with that track alone; even if the Butthole Surfers are, on the whole, mostly a bunch of pricks, Leary still pretty much owns. What a guitar player.

I don't know if I mentioned Locust Abortion Technician, so if I didn't, here it is. Sometimes I wish it was longer...c'mon, it couldn't have been that hard to perform another two or three degraded sludgefests and put 'em on the album...then again, the Surfers were never exactly "motivated" in the traditional sense...

'Can't Decide' could be my anthem sometimes. Right up to the closing lines as he's just panting "maybe tomorrow, maybe tomorrow".

I 'identify' with it.

That's a term I hate, but Black Flag is just about the only band to whom I could apply that phrase.


That's fine, just so long as you don't happen to "identify" with pure dogshit like Slip It In and Family Man. Good Lord, those albums are horrid.

Damaged and My War are great, though, and I'll defend 'em...though the 1982 demos are WAY better than My War is.

I was just skimming the thread to see if anyone mentioned this record. Quite a record of severe depression. It killed me in college thanks to the enablers at Rykodisc. More recently the 4 Men w/Beards vinyl has taken up the fight.

Big Star's 3rd should be on the same short list but drugs play into that game more than chemical imbalance.

I'm not much of a doom metal guy, but Khanate's Things Viral album is an excellent "going insane" or "gone insane" album.

It's slow, spacious, dark as shit, and downright creepy. I envision this album to be the soundtrack of an insane person talking to the loved one they just dumped in a field. Or someone dealing with their multiple personalities by screaming at themselves.

I thought at first it was forced, and the vocals a little too horror movie for my tastes. But I keep coming back.

The music is downright beautiful. Imagine Codeine doing orchestral, minor key, minimal metal, with an insane, nutcase just destroying his vocal chords like Bon Scott being buried alive.

Hellhammer's 'Triumph of Death' probably qualifies. At least in terms of trying to sound 'insane'...

I was attempting to listen to it to zone out or get some comfort from it, though...

There's a Dirty Three song, I think it's "Sue's Last Ride". That's a song I could go insane to.

Have I just missed it or has no one posted Danial Johnston?

His entire catalog is the diary of a person truly going clinically insane.
