Let’s face it. When someone says they are a fan of BTS (or even another popular k-pop group), there will always be one of two things asked first (at least in my own personal experience). ‘How old are you?’ and ‘Aren’t you a little old to like them?’
Turn on the radio. Wait to hear a song you’ve never heard before. Did you like it? Did you hate it? Did you even have a choice?
RATM are quite possibly, the largest politically charged band to ever come out of America, exploding from the underground with their self-titled debut album in 1992. Lyrics still ringing true for countless Americans so many years later, the political climate has changed frighteningly little and with the rock band set to make their comeback and grace the stage next year, there's never been a better time to see the best 'Rage Against the Machine' has to offer.
The Rolling Stones et entourage traveled to the high desert mountain to await UFOs with him. He directed the video of Timothy Leary’s wedding on the mountain where the presiding shaman was too stoned on acid to perform the ceremony.

Twenty years ago, on October 24, the band called Linkin Park released their debut album called Hybrid Theory that launched their career. It's hard to imagine how Linkin Park started from two high school friends to one of the top 20 in the best metal band. But Linkin Park isn't just metal; they are many styles; From headbanging metal to fast rapping hip hop, electronic, rock, which is why they are happy to be under the genre Nu-metal. Even their lyrics are fascinating because they don't talk about punching someone in the gut or putting certain parts of their body in other places. Front lead singer and producer Mike Shinoda stated in an interview, "We sing about anxiety, relationship issues, and wanting to fit in. "
Well, if there isn't a thing to do at home and you find
yourself wanting some stress relief and absolute
realness, then you just might want to take a listen for
Daze Baby. Their music is extraordinary but I am not
heard to sell them to you, no I don't think pimping is not the
direction that I see myself in they are doing just fine.
No, what I want to talk about is what makes Daze Baby
a great band and what is missing from the business. I am sure by now you see where I am going with this.
Now I must warn you this is my first Rock Band. But
perhaps one of most fulfilling stories yet.

The virtual chat is filled with anxious fans from all over the world offering up observations like “Can’t wait”, “Honestly I could listen to ACDC all day long”, “Bless me Angus I play guitar too”, and others just identifying where they’re watching from, “Finland” writes one, “North bay Canada”, writes another.
November of 2015 was a month I remember well. It was around the time I discovered a genre of music that would prove to be a life line. Some might say that statement is a strong claim to make. Those people may be right because I do have a heart for theatrics but, this time I don’t believe its a strong enough statement.
In the decade of the new millennium, This band rode the wave in from a major music benefactor that found them to splash onto shore. But sadly, the wave they rode just dispersed onto land and seeped through the sand with a short lived span as their music fell into obscurity.

My husband and I have had the privilege of becoming acquainted with the Martin Family (Group name Rockland Road) since moving to Hendersonville, Tennessee.
This band RBD started in 2004 and split in late 2008. I remember it well, it was about two years after my biological mother and my dad divorced, that I heard about this group and their music. They started out from the remake of the of an Argentinian Soap Opera, done in Mexico. The first physical CD Album from their title telenovela Rebelde was the first one that I got my hands on, ha, I remember that I had a portable CD Player, I used to take it to school and listen to it during recess and my lunch break. The song that I would listen to on replay was “Sálvame”, because of my childhood and recent incident of my parents having divorced in 2002.
