3:01 Pick Me Up: Germs
Unless you have the good fortune to be unemployed or working as a ditch-digger, 3 p.m. is the cruellest time of the workday. The morning latte has worn off, and the post-lunch crash has you desperately reaching for the J. Peterman Urban Sombrero. To get you through the rest of the afternoon, you have a choice. You can raid the vending machine for an old-fashioned (not to mention life-shortening) white-sugar injection. Or you can kick-start your heart by cueing up one of the over-adrenalized videos we carefully hand-select each day at 3:01 p.m. If the following clip doesn’t bring you temporarily back to life, chances are you’re dead inside. Now plug in those earphones and fucking crank it.
Today’s offering: Don’t do drugs kids. Unless, that is, you want to end up an icon like Darby Crash, in which case we guess maybe it's okay. (By the way, that is indeed Pat Smear, later of Nirvana, and now of the Foo Fighters, on guitar. Take a bow for noticing).
