I used to really dig grunge and alternative.
Then I learned a lot about bands like Dave Matthews, RHCP, Rage Against the Machine, Alice in Chains.
They all have an underlying theme, and I've come to believe that it's uncertainty.
I don't listen to as much music as I did when I was single. Lol. I just had more time to myself, and I played guitar and drums more often then, too.
In some ways I miss it. Music was how I defined myself for a long time, especially rock music.
And then I heard rap that I loved. Snoop Dogg's "The Chronic" turned me on to rad hip hop that I still listen to.
And Asher Roth. I personally like Ash even though everyone makes fun of him. I identify with a white guy that grew up in the 'burbs that happens to like spittin flows.
I love Das Racist. You ever heard of them?
They don't even make sense.
You should like them too. Or at least give them a chance. It's a lot more deep than the seemingly-nonsensical lyrics suggest.
I dig it like a miner digs clay.
Lately I've been into rap and some dubstep. Love me some dubstep. :)
And I never would have thought I'd like dubstep if you asked me five years ago.
Way too much to listen to. How can anyone be educated about all the music out there?
