Eleven is one louder

Last night I learned that today is a very special day – not because it’s my birthday, not because it’s Veterans Day, but because it’s Nigel Tufnel Day in recognition of the day’s “maximum elevenness.”

In honor of the day, here are my picks for songs that should be played one louder:

  • B.O.B. by Outkast
  • Third Uncle by Brian Eno
  • How Soon is Now? by The Smiths
  • I Wanna Be Sedated by the Ramones
  • Turkish Song of the Damned by The Pogues
  • 2+2=5 by Radiohead
  • Straight Outta Compton by N.W.A.
  • Just One Fix by Ministry
  • Foxey Lady by Jimi Hendrix
