Homicidols Best: Daemon’s Top Ten Favorite Idol Songs of All Time

Cal proposed this project some time ago. “Let’s all come up with our ten favorite idol songs,” he said. “It’ll be fun,” he said. It’s actually a pretty agonizing experience. Getting the list down to about 25 or 30 favorite songs isn’t too difficult, but whittling it down from there becomes extraordinarily painful. You can see that, in the end, I copped out and included an extra 10 songs that I couldn’t bear not to mention. I’m doing a terrible job at selling this, because the whole point of this intro is to try to talk you into going through the exercise yourself.  

Please complete this Google Form to tell us your ten favorite idol songs, and why.  Entries that are fit to print will be featured here on this very blog. The last thing we want is for Homicidols to exist as an echo chamber of Team’s crappy tastes and opinions (no matter how erudite and correct they may be), so please let us know what you think.

If the World Gives Us Nothing Else, May It Keep Giving Us DEVIL NO ID

We very literally don’t hear enough about DEVIL NO ID, Okinawa’s loudest answer to the modern idol equation, and it’s quite a shame because, as what you’re about to experience will attest, they’re … well, they’re really good. Combined with the kind of backing that makes big-time collaborations possible, they’re an act that should be making more noise, figuratively as well as literally, than they do.

All of that to preface:

That disarmingly put-together number is spiritually right in line with how DEVIL NO ID does their business, which is to say lovingly striking nasty beats like hammer blows into otherwise highly danceable music that much better aligns with their idol-plus-EDM presentation. It also just so happens to be delivered on a silver platter by the same Ueda Takeshi who penned “STUPiG” and “Gimme Chocolate!!” and is/was the driving force behind the sublime AA=, among other projects that find cool ways to be loud.

Start Thursday Dancing with DEVIL NO ID

Want Some Halloween Idol Hip-hop?

Hey, do you guys remember DEVIL NO ID? I had been curious if, after that initial promotional blitz, they’d get something else out the door before too long. Of course they delivered it on Halloween.


Nice and spooky!

Let’s Also Meet DEVIL NO ID

We here at Homicidols.com, like to pride ourselves on a spirit of discovery and, unlike the 2-year-old monster who won’t eat anything other than Spaghetti-O’s and chicken nuggets, open-minded willingness to try just about anything. So when I see things show up in the Idolmetal group at odd hours, I know enough to mark it down and come back in the morning, because it’s probably at least worth a look.

And folks, what a look.


I–
