Joyously Nihilistic

Ok, one final post about Anthony Bourdain. His love of music, especially 70’s era NYC punk, is well documented, and I’ve been blasting on repeat some of his personal favorites.

Everything by…

Richard Hell and the Voidoids

The Stooges

The New York Dolls

Dead Boys

The Ramones

Patti Smith

As well as…

"Anemone," The Brian Jonestown Massacre

"Pusherman," Curtis Mayfield

"What's Going On," Marvin Gaye

"Do the Strand," Roxy Music

"Chinese Rocks," Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers 

Joyously nihilistic, proudly sloppy, equal parts sorrowful and triumphant. Just like the man.
