3 Minute Record shuffles, tweets through Friday morning

Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones in the ea...

In case you missed the Friday morning 3 Minute Recordtwitter feed I let my iPod mix a Friday shuffle playlist this morning and shared it with my tweeps. Many of my favorite artists made it on to the playlist and covered the various genres of Rock 'n Roll, Folk, Americana, Punk, Alternative Rock, and Indie Rock. Remarkably in only 18 songs each of the last 6 decades of the Rock era were represented - only the 1950s got left out. If this weekend's predicted rapture does indeed come at least my ears will be happy. Hopefully it inspires you to go digging in your collection for some tunes you haven't heard in a while. Feel free to leave me some feedback on what you think. Here’s the results -

Never Really Been Gone – Tommy Keene – Isolation Party
