Green Mind!

I’ve had it up to here–Listening to a small segment of people trying to put down America.  America is the greatest land on Earth and we ought to be proud of what we have.  I’m proud of America; I’m proud of our people; and I’m going to prove it.  We’re American and damn proud of it.

And then the industrial meets electro beat kicks in!  Dink, a 5-piece from Kent, Ohio used that above banter to kick off their 1995 one hit wonder, “Green Mind”.  If you were a fan of the 90s industrial scene with the likes of KMFDM, Ministry, and of course Reznor’s group, you most likely knew of the song and maybe even owned the album.  And if not, Dink got enough radio play on local alternative stations and Subterranean‘s older brother, 120 Minutes to get the word out.  (Great 120 Minutes performance here)  For someone who was more a fan of alternative music, this track was unique–with its electronic effects, torrential drum hits, swooping bassline, and rapidfire vocals.

If I were to compile a singles playlist with tracks from the 90’s that make people get up, “Green Mind” would rank high.  There seems to be infinite energy from start to finish.  I always used to think of White Zombie’s “More Human Than Human” when I played the goodness below.

Oh, did you not click that great 120 Minutes performance?  Sunny Day Real Estate performing the hell out of “Circles”.
