Office DJ: Punk for nerds

"This playlist is punk for beginners — or punk for nerds as I like to call it. The songs are relatively tame and have truly fascinating stories behind them. Iggy Pop probably wouldn’t care if you liked them. But I hope you do."

"I will admit there are a couple of songs on her latest album that I am not a fan of, but this is insignificant in comparison to my respect for Taylor Swift as an artist. Not every beat or lyric will resonate with each listener, but love and its butterfly effects is a theme to rally behind; a unifier not just for 'Swifties,' but for everyone trying to find a place in this world."
