Remember the shitshow? The BYT message board was a huge success until it broke and was a lot of fun for a few annoying narcissists. Still, it was not all bad, and we decided that in lieu of our Friday VIDEO OF THE DAY we’re going to start doing  a redux of one of the most popular stupid threads from that wonderful wasteland of time: the pump up jams topic

this is how it works: we asked some of our contributors to tell us what jams are getting them all hot and bothered for the weekend AND THEN-you get to write yours in the comments too. This should result either in an amazing pump up mix, or the biggest disaster ever.

TODAY-WE ASKED OUR VERY TALENTED PHOTO STAFF FOR SOME SUGGESTIONS (+ an inspirational photo to boot). Here’s what they came up with  on our end:

Jeff Martin:


Here are Jeff’s  tunes in order, starting from waking up from a disco nap: DOWNLOAD HERE



  • Miss Alissa – Eagles of Death Metal
  • Surrender – Cheap Trick
  • Huddle Formation – The Go! Team
  • O Katrina! – The Black Lips


As I’m leaving for London on MONDAY, I can’t help but be inspired by this snap by Hedi Slimane of infamous Englishman and bad boy rocker Pete Doherty.  Slimane is my favorite photographer and I love how he can say so much about a person and the mood with keen attention to detail and monochrome.
As for songs that are prepping me for weekend packing/debauchery….
  • The XX – VCR (Matthew Dear Remix) Cale gifted me this track in a mix this week.  Perfect for dancing in a mirror, trying to figure out what dress to wear for tonight’s Kennedy Center Holiday party (plus, sexy enough to be played after if you catch my drift).
  • The Kills – “Superpowerless” Just tell me the lyrics don’t warrant screaming while chain-smoking cigarettes and trying to hail a cab at 3AM. “Till your drunk, till your high… till your superpowerless”

  • Estelle feat. Kanye – “American Boy” You know I thought this song was finally out of my mind for good, but Philippe (of SILF + FatBack fame) played this jam at a party last night.  It’ll never be gone now!


  • the illinois – fang Island
  • titus andronicus – titus andronicus
  • genghis tron – endless teeth
  • hunter – mastodon


  • Kaskade- eyes (alvin risk remix)
  • Zeds Dead- (Radiohead) pyramid song
  • Le tigre- Decaptacon


  • Blut Aus Nord – Epitome II
  • Mercyful Fate – Welcome Princes of Hell
  • At The Gates – Slaughter of the Soul
  • Ben Frost – The Carpathians
