Bell and 'Zett Face the Music

Previously on Adam Riff™:

Adam Riff™'s 2020 retrospective festivities conclude with a triptych of playlists.

First, Mad MMXX, my 17th year-end audio pastiche.

Next, Four Seasons Total Soundscaping, a very different mix curated by our mates Adam [Rozett] Robot and Jon Bell:

Rejected cover/title ideas:

—Replace the dollar bill on the cover of Nirvana's Nevermind with a $1200 stimulus check.

—Scrooge McDuck diving into a $1200 stimulus check.

—Lloyd Dobler holding up a black square.


—Something something Social Distortion, but Social Distancing.

—The cover of Bruce Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A. with a mask instead of a hat in his back right jeans pocket.

—The cover of Madvillain's Madvillainy with a face shield covering MF DOOM's mask.

OnlyBands or OnlyJams.

—MTV's logo, but WAP. Upside down M. "AP" instead of "TV." Wrap-up Audio Playlist.

—The Looney Tunes color rings. Zoomey Tunes. The black circle in the center just reads "Porky Pig" in white text as if his camera is off.

—The cover of NOFX's White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean, but White Masks, Six Feet and a 'Tine. "20XX" instead of "NOFX."

XX XX Hard Quarantine Age Phonography (XXX Hardcore Teenage Pornography).
