Top Ten Tracks: Mike Patton

Well, I’m not writing out all the bands or projects he’s been in the title but I guess I’m focusing on the main ones here in this blog post today! Maybe I will go into more detail of each of his acts at a later date? I will not bother to give you any bio details but here’s his Wikipedia link, if you do need more info? He’s also got a new brand project/album I’m looking forward to entitled Corpse Flower collaboration with French composer Jean-Claude Vannier, out in a couple of months, linked here if you wanna listen to the couple of songs released?

Let’s just get on with it! So is in order of release date, my fave ten songs by him is…

Faith No MoreZombie Eaters – The Real Thing (1989)

Mr. BungleQuote Unquote aka Travolta – Self-titled (1991)

Faith No MoreCaffeine – Angel Dust (1992)

Faith No More & Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. – Another Body Murdered – Judgment Night soundtrack (1993)

Faith No MoreEvidence – King for a Day… Fool for a Lifetime (1995)

Mr. BungleDesert Search for Techno Allah – Disco Volante (1995)

Mike PattonInconsolable Widows in Search of Distraction – Adult Themes for Voice (1996)

Mike Patton – Bombe a Mano – Pranzo Oltranzista (1997)

The Jamie Saft TrioBallad of a Thin Man  – Trouble: The Jamie Saft Trio Plays Bob Dylan (2007)

Dead CrossIdiopathic – Self-titled (2017)

Well, it’s seven tracks from the 90’s and then one each from 80’s, 2000’s and 2010’s. Amazingly it’s not all 90’s really but that late 80’s FNM album did shine a ray of light or hope on my teenage years living in the middle of nowhere. Then I’ve never ever blogged my all time fave cover versions of his which is on a Jazz band doing Dylan songs, I just had included that one today. Dead Cross was the kind-of band/album I want him to be in for years and years, if you ask me I can’t stop raving about that so it’s a perfected ending for this weekend’s post. So 90’s is one track each from the next two FNM albums, two for the first couple of Mr. Bungle, his earliest two solo albums and one cut from a screaming soundtrack song and that’s my ten! Off course so much is missed out and like I’ve already say, I could expanded this list easy but some other time?

90’s Patton by himself  which does looks like he’s hanging out out the back of a circus but it’s most likely a rock festival somewhere?

Please do tell me your own fave MP song/s now?

Cheers 🙂



  1. For me, Evidence was really different from any other Faith No More song, it was like a late night jazz song, very mysterious and sort of sexy. I loved Evidence before any of FNM’s other songs, it was sort of like a gateway drug for me. Second fav is We Care A Lot…like the shouty anthemic sound it has, very 90’s, love it

    1. Oh yeah, i really should do just FNM TTT post! Evidence would be one of my most fave songs of all-time! We Care A Lot with Chuck as singer is so wicked great too!
      Cheers yet again 🙂

      1. I didn’t realise that wasn’t Mike Patton actually! Now you say it though the vocals sound completely different. Evidence is a good night time driving song or night time whisky drinking song I think 🙂

      2. Oh yeah, Chuck Mosley was FNM on their first two albums but off course Mike sung We Care A Lot live a lot but i don’t think they re-recorded it in a studio or anything? But might have double check that, could be a radio session or something?
        Chuck Mosley was a very open junkie but was always letting the rest of band down one way or other so that’s why they changed singer to Patton somewhere in the late 80’s! Mosley passed away a year or two ago after being clear for years and years, put out music under his name and bands plus even did FNM live reunion shows celebrate those early album but he relapsed and OD in 2017. i did put together my fave parts of Chuck’s music career on blog post here:
        if you wanna check him out more?
