Among others, you will find songs by: Ramones (a whole lot!), Hole (even Violet!), Hedwig & The Angry Inch, Rock Horror Picture Show, Joy Division, The Smiths, Presets, Florence & The Machine, Arcade Fire, Robyn, Gossip, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Marina & The Diamonds, Lykke Li, Hot Hot Heat, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Bauhaus, Iggy & The Stooges, The Damned, Rancid, Snoop Dog, Tupac, Lil’ Kim… the list goes on. Yes, they even have some of the cheesy pop hits you love to sing. 
Best of all, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, J&J will do their best to add it for the following week.
