Cheap Tunes Tuesday

There wasn't a hotter act in music, TV and film than today's featured artist back in 1996, the year of the original "Independence Day."

Whether you like your Will Smith with Jazzy Jeff, with Uncle Phil and Carlton, or with his family in modern day, there is something on this album for you. Today, you can score it for only $5.

The Carpenters were one of the most recognized acts of the ‘70s, but appears to be lost among the current generation—but today you can give them a try for only $5.

LinkinPark_Hybrid Theory

Cheap Tunes Tuesday

Linkin Park is officially labeled as nu metal, but you'll also hear rap metal or alt metal as genre descriptions. It's heavy rock, with a totally different take on vocals. You get lead-singer Bennington’s classic hard rock voice and the backup singer doing a Roots style rap. It was so unique to the mainstream; Linkin Park often gets credit for creating the category. You can score their ground-breaking album today for only $5.

bad company

Cheap Tunes Tuesday

Supergroups tend to be an amazing idea on paper, but once the music hits the airwaves, they don’t live up to the hype. Today’s band was certainly legit, but they don’t perhaps get the recognition they deserve. With over 20 million albums sold worldwide, it’s a bit surprising they aren’t more of a household name.

Today’s band was always ‘the next big thing’–referred to as the “next Jane’s Addiction,” then the “next Nirvana,” then the “next Pearl Jam.” While somewhat flattering to be compared with those great groups, all this band wanted to do was step out of that limelight and become their own household name. They succeeded in spades and you can score their second album today for only $5.

Pearl

Cheap Tunes Tuesday

This album is as close to a masterpiece as you can get. It’s number 122 on the 500 greatest albums of all time, and has almost unanimous 5-star reviews. When you listen to it, it’s very easy to hear why. If you’ve never heard Janis sing, her voice is not only unique, it’s also absolutely amazing. She makes every word have emotion, no matter if it’s aching passion or a funky version of the blues. Today you can get Pearl for only $5 and it's actually worth way more than that.
