Thanks for checking this out, everyone. There were a number of additional performances we wanted to include, but finding 6-7 year old videos online proved harder than expected. AOL's search tools were terrible and few other sides had content unless fans ripped it.

that blink-182 session is one of the worst things ever. it just sounds absolutely horrendous.


Considering the fact that they were never amazing performers I think it's a cool session that does a pretty good job of capturing the energy of blink with a bit better songwriting from the s/t days.

I always loved the Thrice session after Vheissu came out. The Cartel session where they covered Wonderwall was really good too.

This is like next level bad, though. Even for them it's just terrible. But Travis is spot on, haha so that's a plus.

WOW cant believe acceptance isn't on this list. Those sessions we're the easily the best out of the entire catalog they had.

As ridiculous as Cobra Starship is, I have always loved their Billie Jean cover.

I know this isn't AOL, but it's still amazing.

The Starting Line's Aol Sessions were my favorite bit of online acoustics for ages.

Kinda off topic, but how come AOL never grew with the times and became a legit web browser? It seemed like they had such a good start back in the day.
Check out this article about AOL's subscriber-base back in 2011 -- essentially 4 million people paying for a service that's available for free:

It's ironic that a company which helped pioneer digital access completely missed the boat with emerging technologies & trends. If they had put some of their money into developing new platforms, maybe they could've been Facebook or whatever -- instead of being the Blockbuster of internet-antiquity.

The Saosin one is really good and the Cobra Starship one was hands down the best thing I've ever heard from them.
