Pop quiz / Song request time -
Looking for Punk songs with the word YES or NO in the title!
West asked me to fill in on Sonic Reducer on KEXP this weekend & I like to do themes so let's see how many Yes/No punk songs we can dig up
Note - songs like Uncontrollable Urge by Devo with its uncountable amounts of YEAHs in the song are acceptable extra credit as well
Picture of Spider-Punk figure added just for fun



The Bronx-born guitarist, songwriter and band leader helped lead the transition from glam rock to punk



It is with extreme sadness we confirm that at 6:30am on 26th November 2023 in Prague, Killing Joke's legendary guitarist Kevin “Geordie” Walker passed away after suffering a stroke, he was surrounded by family. We are devastated. Rest In Peace brother.


There was a fatal shooting @ a DIY punk show @ Nudieland in Minneapolis the other day.

Below is a statement by Felix Havoc (via Al Q).

RIP to legend of The Nerves - one of the West Coast's true rock'n roll pioneers of the 1970s. We really hope that 1974-era acetate of "Hanging on the Telephone" mentioned in Paul's book finally surfaces someday, fingers crossed!



His distinctively dour voice can be heard on hits like Ghost Town, Gangsters and Too Much, Too Young.



The musician was also an author, business owner and designer, and owned a fleet of ice-cream vans that were once used to tour the UK

KEXP is listener supported radio.
Any and all donations help.

Today, we kick off our Fall Fundraising Drive. For those who might not know, KEXP is a listener-powered nonprofit, which means everything that you see on our social media feeds, watch on our YouTube Channel, and hear on our radio broadcast is powered by you.

Fundraising drives are the main way we strengthen our programming and community. Because they happen just a few times a year, they are absolutely crucial to keeping KEXP strong year-round. There are several ways that you can participate in powering KEXP:

1. Become an Amplifier by making a monthly gift to KEXP! Amplifier gifts start at $6 a month. When you become an Amplifier, you're sustaining connections between artists and music-lovers worldwide, and helping us plan into the future — for the live events, on-air programming days, and festivals to come.

2. Make a one-time gift to KEXP! Any amount means something, and if you give $100 or more right now you can get a sweet KEXP t-shirt or a beanie!

3. Keep listening! We know not everyone can give and that's okay — we love knowing you're with us and are just happy to have you here.

However you decide to support our Fall Fundraising Drive, know that your gift makes an impact on everyone in our community of music lovers and music makers. During this time of continued isolation and uncertainty, music and the KEXP community reminds us all that we're not alone.

Whether you're becoming an Amplifier or making a one-time donation to KEXP or cheering us on as we work toward our fundraising goal, you're giving the gift of music to the your fellow music-loving humans around the world. Thank you for being with us.
