It took me ages to embrace Spotify as a streaming music service, but now I've turned the corner and have begun to love it for it's potential as a source of music discovery. While I still don't know how the long term will wind-up in terms of converting listeners into buyers, the depth of the library is intriguing, and something I can have a little fun with. Today I'm presenting to you my first-ever curated Spotify Playlist. THE ROCK FATHER presents COVERED is a 3 hour+ genre-spanning collection of hand-picked cover songs. I dig a good cover tune, (hence my "covered" features here on the site), and this is just the start. There's some great ones out there, and this first playlist features 53 tracks including some from FAR, ANBERLIN, FAITH NO MORE, METALLICA, GUNS N' ROSES, JANET DEVLIN, DINOSAUR JR., A LOSS FOR WORDS, ELECTRIC SIX and more. I even snuck in my boys, PRODUCT OF HATE, throwing down their heavy version of OZZY OSBOURNE's "Perry Mason." Check it out below...

With all of the Shark-tastic goodness flying around and being eaten by CGI creatures, actor Ian Ziering contributed a hand-picked playlist of appropriate songs to the folks at Rdio. You can give it a listen right here, or simply check out his picks below. I haven't yet seen a SHARKNADO film... perhaps it's time to get started...

You can stream the 11-song set via the Soundcloud player below. Check it out!
