Time To Get Manly 65: Beethoven - Symphony No. 5

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

Beethoven - Symphony No. 5

Oooh, Esquire's dropping a bit of manly sophistication into the mix with the inclusion of some "classical music." And really, what's more manly than a man in a wig and tights, right? Haha. Stop being a dick. Beethoven, though emotionally unstable, plagued by chronic pain and early onset hearing loss, was a motherfucking musical badass. Of his nine symphonies, this one is probably the most immediately recognizable, especially if you're a fan of Saturday Night Fever. So yeah, when you're done listening to Slick Rick, put this on to scrub some of that filth out of your brain.
