I remember using one of those "columbia house" type services back in the day, where you could call the hotline and hear clips of songs from different albums (anyone else remember doing this?? it seems forever ago). Anyway, I remember hearing these songs for the first time on that hotline. I requested the CD (one of those "12 CDs for Free" deals), and I've loved the album ever since.
Holy shit, man. I used to do the same thing when I was a kid. There was a number like 1-800-MUSIC-NOW or something like that where you could listen to a handful of clips from certain albums. I used to do this for And Out Come the Wolves
like everyday to hear clips of Maxwell Murder
, Roots Radical
, Time Bomb
and a few others. I remember using this hotline to listen to Insomniac
by Green Day as well because my parents wouldn't buy me cd's with cuss words. haha.
