Also what uis guy stuff?

Stuff that's not chick rock like Bon Jovi. Guys who sing about stuff other than relationships.  :lol:

I approve of that.

However, Bon Jovi has its place.

For example, you, your drummer and your imminently ex-roommate are in a U-Haul, driving.

It's late August because, well, no one in MA moves outside of 29 Aug-3 Sept, amirite?

Living On A Prayer comes on while you're rolling through Newton.

What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?

Pop in a CD that doesn't suck, or dig up my mp3 player, or find another station, or just turn the shit off. That dude did an ADVIL commercial, FFS.

I don't watch TV but I searched it up on youtube because somebody emailed me and told me about it. "You've gotta see this, it's pathetic..."  :lulz: "I don't have room on my schedule for pain, people just see me onstage they don't know I'm a singer/philanthropist/father/blah blah blah..."  Bill Hicks had something to say about corporate shills, too. SUCK SATAN'S COCK!!!!!  :lulz:

As an aside,  I was bartending when "I'll Be There For You" came out and when somebody played it, you'd always see one or two of the drunks start looking down in their beer ("I DIDN'T MEAN TO MISS YOUR BIRTHDAY BAYBEE...") and then they'd get up and go home...the owner had it taken off the jukebox.  :lulz: You do hear Bon Jovi in tittie bars a lot, but that's only because the dancers usually pick their own music. Maybe people who have to let creepy old men shove bills in their g-strings need overly-sentimental emo schlock to balance it out, I dunno. And that's just the old stuff. Everything I've heard post-80's has been like Michael Bolton "adult easy listening".  :x

He Suu, if you're looking for something more current to tickle your 70's art-rock funnybone, check out Grizzly Bear.  I think you'd like them.

My mom used to listen to them a lot when i was a wee lad. First song I ever remember hearing.

Ok. This is the thread I want.

This song does not work without the video.  Also, this video was being played in 1994. That's my end of the world isn't it? 1994?

Try this one too. I like it more musically. Same artist same album:

This will be classic rock in a year and a half.

Think About that. Heresy By Nine Inch Nails will be on par with the Beatles in less than two years.  I hate you for your youth. I'm going to rewind this so I can hate my inheritors more than my parents.

I'm currently listening to a hugely influential band during my formative years.

Fates Warning.

They are kinda like Dream Theater, if Dream Theater had any soul and remembered that they are Rock and Roll.

Ah Heresy. The only song within my entire catalog of black t-shirt bands that my mom positively abhorred. My dad fucking loves NIN, though. So I got to keep my CD.

Mom was into New Wave in the 80s, but in the 70s she was totally a Dead Head and Southern Rock fiend, whereas my dad was a 70s Art Rock acid-tripper turned 80s Punk Rocker. So we had a massive variety in my house growing up. They both had epic hair up until I was about 7.

It wasn't Saturday in the Suu house until I was being woken up by one of these tracks. That meant mom was cleaning, and if we wanted to change the music, we had to clean, too:

UB40 always puts me in the mood to clean to this day.......Guess I should play it once in a while.

I was brought up with Steely Dan (still love 'em), and a bit of Sting.

Liked boy band music when I was 10-11, liked Coldplay's hits just after that, and liked Metallica because my friends did, and got fucking obsessed with Beatles and XTC (the band that made that Dear God song, not the drug). Other than that, my taste in music is derived partly from my dad's vinyl collection (Tom Waits, Talking Heads, Leonard Cohen) and my sister's boyfriend's iTunes library (The National, Grizzly Bear, Fleet Foxes, Pixies, Gang of Four). About two years ago, my taste in music started getting so eclectic, it's hard to keep track of.

Weird to think that in 20-30 years, most of my musical nostalgia will be for music from before I was born.

Somebody kept pm'ing me on facebook last night raving about the Dukes of September. It's Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald with Boz Scaggs and I don't know who else. I'm not really a Steely Dan person but if that's your thing, definitely check them out.

I've always had a thing for Tom Jones music for as long as i can remember.

I can't put my finger on why but they are amongst the most easily singable songs i know because none of them have high pitched notes which for some reason i can't hit because of my deep voice.

I highly reccommend you continue listening to your dad's and sister's boyfriend's music.
