Local promoter Brian McKenna of Abstract Entertainment refused to select five songs for his Playlist. “Narrowing it down to five songs was too daunting a task,” he said. “The following is a list of five albums that have had the greatest impact on me. Through my work, I’ve been able to promote shows with all but one on the list. I’m sure you can guess which one has eluded me.”

1. Bad Brains, Rock for Light

2. X, Los Angeles

3. Rush, A Farewell to Kings

4. NoMeansNo, Wrong

5. Quicksand, Slip

Honorable mentions:

1. Outkast, Aquemini

3. The Jesus Lizard, Shot

4. Clutch, The Elephant Riders

5. Tabla Beat Science, Tala Matrix

6. The Mars Volta, De-loused in the Comatorium
