SNL isn't the edgiest, and I hear you when you talk about it's 'punk' roots. And Canada's SCTV came before or was a contemporary. Kids in the Hall was later. Exit 57 in the mid-90s [Colbert, Sedaris, Dinello].
This week we observed the one-year anniversary of the Trump-led attempt to overthrow our democracy on January 6, 2021. Our nation and our democracy held firm and we're still standing against the Republican Party of Insurrection but we will need to pass voting rights protections to keep standing strong. We can't let down now. So the theme for this weekend's music thread is about standing up, staying strong, and fighting to win against the destructive forces trying to rip democracy out of the majority's hands.
After the past five years of dealing with the Trump Regime, the 1/6 insurrection that continues today, Covid, Climate-Change-caused natural disasters, and a Tiger King sequel, we sure deserve a good year! To celebrate the start of 2022, this weekend's music thread is about beginnings. Songs about things that are new or starting and songs that express hopes and desires for good things you would like to see in 2022 are all on the fresh slate this weekend.
Didna any ye ever figure it odd ye sung that ev'ry New Year's Eve? Not only is it clearly Robert Burns, but it's clearly Scots. Scots English if you want to be an asshole. I have books on Scots. It's not Gaelic, but in my opinion, it is to standard English as Dutch is to German.
Those empty holiday stockings are growing more excited about being filled with candy…not to mention the boys and girls dreaming of emptying them and getting those sugarplums in their tummies. So this weekend’s music thread is for songs about sugar, honey, candy and things that are sweet.

It's your turn to Come Together with Beatle songs from Yesterday that mean Something to you and you can listen to Any Time At All or Eight Days a Week because Tomorrow Never Knows.
It's Thanksgiving weekend, a day for thankfulness, family, and antacids. To celebrate Thanksgiving, our weekend music thread is about being thankful, love and any song about something you're thankful for. Including antacids.
The GOP now openly supports sedition, racism, death threats towards fellow Congresspeople, men who sexually assault women, pedophiles, voter suppression, and murdering protesters. And that's just the shortlist. How do they sleep at night? That's the musical question we ask in this weekend's music thread through the theme of songs that ask questions.
This week, a grand jury indicted Nazi Fred Flintstone AKA Steve Bannon which signals the beginning of bringing Trumpanzee criminals to justice. So the theme of this weekend's music thread is about justice, just desserts, the law, and crime and punishment.
