I don’t know about you, but I find that sometimes the best pop culture picks come from people who are completely uninhibited when it comes to what other people think of their taste.
People who are unafraid to love the weird, wonderful and occasionally offensive. That’s kind of why we love Canadian rock lords MONSTER TRUCK. They just want to rock as hard as possible as frequently as possible, and they don’t give a damn what y’all think about it. And boy, do they know how to wail.
The long-haired intrepid foursome release their gargantuan rock epic of a second album ‘Sittin’ Heavy’ today via Dine Alone Records/Cooking Vinyl. To get them in the mood for lots of hours in the tour van promoting their riff-laden epic, we rounded up the band’s best pop culture picks from recent times. If you trust Canadian taste as much as we do (ie. a lot), these little beauties should keep you occupied for a while…
TV: Mr. Robot
“Technological mystery/thriller. Feels like Fight Club meets hackers.”
MOVIES: The Martian
“Matt Damon! Is there anything this guy can’t do? He’s a space pirate. A SPACE PIRATE. That’s all you need to know.”
COMEDY: Bill Burr
“Hands down the funniest comedian on the planet right now. His stand up has just hit an all time high and I can’t wait for the next one.”
GAMING: Fallout 4
“Wake up in a post-apocalyptic wasteland with only your wits and guns to save you? Yes please”
EXTRA BONUS TV TIP: The Road to the Winter Classic – Montreal vs Boston (TV Special)
“MOAR HOCKEY. A Behind the scenes look at what makes the greatest sport in the world tick. With 100% more swearing.”
Pleasure your earholes with Monster Truck’s huge drone-filmed video for ‘Don’t Tell Me How To Live’ while you’re taking all of this in…
