    Stop the Nickelback Hate

    Stop the Nickelback Hate

    No one is wrong for not being a super fan of certain genres of music. However, there has been a joke going on for who knows how long, about Nickelback being hated by a lot of people. I might not be a big enough fan to listen to all of their songs, but I do know that the longer this joke carries on, the more likely people will dismiss the songs by them that are actually passionate, tell good stories, or have good messages within them.

    The Girls Are Back in Town!

    The Girls Are Back in Town!

    I sometimes think people forget just how huge the Spice Girls were, and what they achieved. For a 90s teenager, like myself, these girls were incredible. They installed in us that anything is possible, as a woman you could achieve your dreams. They spread their message of Girl Power, and rightly achieved gigantic success all around the world.

    'Whoo' by Rainbow

    'Whoo' by Rainbow

    I miss Rainbow. OK, I must be honest. It wan't until they released this song that I started listening to them. I was so upset when they announced they would disband just a few months after this song was released. I was really looking forward to seeing what else I could fall in love with. Anyway, I still don't know much about their musical career, but I do follow most of the members on Twitter. In the short time that I got to know them, Hyunyoung caught my attention the most. She honestly has an amazing body and her vocals are amazing as well.

    Mahopac Tenor Drummer Enjoys Stepping in Place with Bagpipe Band

    Mahopac Tenor Drummer Enjoys Stepping in Place with Bagpipe Band

    The Blackthorn Pipe Band can usually be found ascending 5th Avenue every March 17 in New York City, where they proudly march to the Irish spirit of St. Patrick. They also answer the call for a number of other parades and celebrations in Yonkers, Peekskill and White Plains throughout the calendar year. Either way, each piper knows how off they sound if going without practice for a week or so. That said, everyone else in listening proximity is well aware if the lapse lags past a seven day stretch, according to the band’s tenor drummer, Cathleen Benson of Mahopac, New York. But there’s more involved in being part of this type of band than just having the pipes to make this ancient Irish instrument sing triumphantly.

    'The Best Complex'

    'The Best Complex'

    Though it had been several years now of knowing Natalie, it was the first year I had lived with her that inspired me to take music back up in the first place.

    10 Underrated Bands That Should Be More Famous Than They Are

    10 Underrated Bands That Should Be More Famous Than They Are

    I remember first hearing Orgy's "Blue Monday" song for the first time. I was 12 years old and had managed to sneak away in order to listen to some music on the net for the first time. It was a song that really resonated with me, and when I saw the music video, I was blown away.

    Air Supply How the Music Began

    Air Supply How the Music Began

    An odd name to choose but Air Supply was a soft rock band formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1976. Their line-up has changed many times but two standard members of this group are Graham Russell (acoustic guitar, lead and harmony vocals, songwriter) and Russell Hitchcock (lead and harmony vocals). Despite the fact that at any one time they could be a whole band, a great deal of the time Air Supply sang as a duo.

    The Wolff & Clark Expedition on Tour and Hanging out with Fans

    The Wolff & Clark Expedition set out two years ago off a long working relationship between pianist Mike Wolff and drummer Mike Clark. With a debut album that goes with the tour, the adventure has so far laid waste to the country and shook critics to their core. Hopefully, the first of many collaborations, the main components of this exploratory committee took an afternoon respite in Union Square to discuss the success.

    Why Am I Suddenly Obsessed with Bring Me the Horizon

    Why Am I Suddenly Obsessed with Bring Me the Horizon

    What even is this. This band came out in 2004, and it's currently the bitter end of 2018. In all those years before they never popped up on my radar, and now every personal mix on YouTube includes at least three of their songs. Though that probably has to do with the number of times I've replayed the entire Semipiternal album. I can't really answer my own question sadly enough, but what I do know is that I'm really happy they did pop up on my suggested videos because their songs are a mood.
