From longtime fans to students who were just looking for something fun to do on a Thursday night, West Coast rapper Dom Kennedy did not disappoint.

Heavy bass, a DJ, lights and a stage were all Dom Kennedy needed to get students jamming at The Underground last night.

Larger than most other performances which traditionally book the intimate, subterranean venue, the small size of The Underground turned out to be a perfect fit for the West Coast rapper to engage the audience.

The best from 2013 in the world of music were honored and made the mediocre painfully stand out.

The Grammys are weird. Like any other music award show, but multiplied by a billion, there’s this understanding that who wins is actually kind of irrelevant, but somehow we still care so much.

This year, if we pretend the nominees to begin with were the right choices (which they largely weren’t), the Grammy winners aren’t totally, offensively wrong, which is pretty much all any music lover can ask for.

From Garth Brooks to Mariah Carey, this list has your guilty pleasures covered.

This list is meant to count down some of those wonderful holiday tunes that are awful. Now, I must say before any judgment is passed that I love all of these songs; but they are all hideous in their own unique way.

These are the ones that play in the mall while you’re shopping. You know, the ones that you hum along to before realizing what you’re doing. Then you have to look around to make sure no one noticed.

These aren’t Christmas standards by Bing Crosby or Nat King Cole. And while they are catchy and easy to listen to, “The Christmas Song” they are not.
