To add to the depression I've been feeling today, Ken Hensley, the original keyboardist of Uriah Heep, passed away just now. He wrote this song back in 1970, and it's been one of my favourites for a long time now.

RIP.
 
Text only reply here due to low tech. I've been really digging the Deftones since a year before quarantine, especially at the start of it.

I liked their singles back when nu metal was a thing, but overlooked them in favor of radio rock. Even when I downloaded their first three albums, I only had a few tunes of theirs added to my tastes. Even seeing Chino live with his side project didn't change much for me.

Now I have at least a dozen of their songs on shuffle. I recommend the Saturday Night Wrist album: it marks the time I ignored them and when I came back. They even have unique covers of Duran Duran, Cars, influences you wouldn't think they'd honor.

Some interesting lyrics considering the times we live in.

you're politically correct no matter what you say
convincing us all in every single kind of way
cos you frame the words so that we really believe
that there's a depth in the message that you're trying to achieve
so you twist your tongue to make it all sound true
making us believe that we haven't got a clue
you tell us all exactly what you think we want to hear
with theatrical tactics to boost your career
every promise you make is just a promise you break
and you can never admit that you could make a mistake
because you say one thing and you mean something else
you only care about yourself and your wealth
so all i say is
power to the one who doesn't want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
do you want it, why do you want it
with your military mind you were born a leader
and discipline and order is an everyday procedure
so bring out the man in every innocent boy
and teach them how to kill so they can search and destroy
to protect and to serve and die with honour and pride
you say you're fighting for peace but that's the biggest lie
you're preparing for war and your martial law
but you don't know what it's for anymore
so all i say is
power to the one who doesn't want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
do you want it, why do you want it
power is a sickness power is to blame
power is a weapon and it's driving me insane
power is an enemy
power is pain
power is a war but to you it's just a game
power is glory
power is gold
power is chaos and you're out of control
power isn't freedom
power is a cage
power is your sin and it feeds my rage
power to the one who doesn't want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
do you want it, why do you want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
do you want it, why do you want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
do you want it, why do you want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
do you want it, why do you want it
power to the one who doesn't want it
