Hippies To Hipsters

barcode_3

I hate labels. Labels and categories are for record companies to find a place to fit a musical act. The masses buy into it.

Hard Rock, Acid Rock, Soft Rock, Prog-Rock, Punk Rock, Southern Rock, Crap Rock

Heavy Metal, Thrash Metal, Speed Metal, Death Metal

Country Western, Country Rock, Alt-Country, Country pop crossover

Pop, Power Pop, Brit Pop

Rap, Gansta Rap, Hip Hop

New Wave, No Wave

Grunge, Hipster

ENOUGH ALREADY

Why can’t music just be music.

i listen to Black Sabbath and Abba on the same day. My musical tastes go from Sinatra to the Sex Pistols. I don’t apologize for anything I listen to. I have many guilty pleasures.

If it turns me on and I like it that’s good enough for me.

DON’T fall into the trap these genre whores set for you.

The saddest thing is when bands are not listened to because they are categorized by some mass marketing media group of idiots who know nothing about music.

Be free to enjoy anything.

Except Bon Jovi, Daughtry, and Billy Joel.

That stuff is just shit.

Thank you very much. I am here all week. Try the veal.

    i just love the contrast.. After an album of fun-punkband The Toy Dolls or the great partyband Mano Negra i every now and then play Disintegration of The Cure… If you are ever down or depressed, just listen to that album. It cheers you up, because you realise that compared to that your life isn’t so bad. Btw Lullaby is absolutely the greatest song on that album.
