Perry Farrell, Trent Reznor, Nirvana, Radihead, etc. contribute their music as being influenced by the Pixies. One reason for this is that the Pixies were not just a good band they were a great band. Great in the way that the Beatles are great or David Bowie is great. Death to the Pixies is an attempt to sum up highlights of the Pixies music which can only be done by owning every album they made. However, this album is the perfect one for having in your car or at work. It features some of their best album tracks as well as an entire live cd, giving you a blend of the two things that made the Pixies great... their ability to put together perfect albums as well as put on great live shows. The Pixies are the pioneers of making distortion and chaos into melody and making it work in a way that makes their music open to a much wider audience than the somehwat similar Sonic Youth or even Nirvana. They get away with it by having songs like Wave of Mutilation (featued in the movie Pump Up The Volume) and Where Is My Mind? (recently made popular again by the movie Fight Club). The Pixies aren't for everyone but they are for those who want exploration, depth, darkness, weirdness, and a little bit of everything found in hot dogs or bologna in their music.
