In 2021, no self respecting music journalist is still covering mash ups. Those went out of style at least five years ago, but probably more like ten. But here at If It's too Loud... we're old enough to not care about being hip like those whippersnapper music blogs, so we can't resist Rocket to Kingston. Billed to Bobby Ramone, Rocket to Kingston takes the vocals of Bob Marley and the music of the Ramones! If that sounds like fun to you, I can guarantee it's even more fun. Plus, it gives the protest message of Bob Marley songs the punk edge they're lacking. The song titles alone make this mash up worth it. My personal favorites are "I Don't Wanna Stand Up," "Today One Love, Tomorrow the World," and "Three Surfin' Little Birds." If you're still digging mash ups, this one is a must listen.
You can listen to "Today One Love, Tomorrow the World" below. Rocket to Kingston is available for the "name your price" option on Bandcamp thanks to Guerilla Asso. They also have a vinyl option, if you'd prefer.
