Before their gig at First Avenue, Milo Aukerman of the Descendents stopped by The Current to curate a playlist and take over our airwaves with a Theft of the Dial.

If there's one song that he wants to share with the world to define the Descenedents' new album Hypercaffium Spazzinate, Aukerman tells host Mary Lucia it's "Victim of Me."

That track opens Aukerman's Theft of the Dial, but then he spins acts that inspired his career. "[X] were the gateway band to getting into harder edge music, so that's why they're the linchpin of this collection of songs I've put together," says Aukermen. "In putting together this playlist, I have to think about what contributed to me becoming who I am today, and obviously these songs spurred to be that person."
