Music and What Not

I'm not really too sure what to write about today, so I figured I might as well right about music, seeing as I really enjoy both listening to and playing music. A lot of people think that I just listen to "screamo" based on how I look. Honestly, I don't know what "screamo" is. I listen to many different genres of music and I'm probably a lot more musically diverse than people would expect me to me. Some of the genres that I listen to (in alphabetical order, by the way) include: acoustic (not really a genre, but whatever), alternative, country, death metal, deathcore, emo, folk, grindcore, hardcore, hardcore/pop punk, indie, industrial, jazz, melodic hardcore, metal, metalcore, new age piano, pop, pop punk, post-hardcore, punk, R&B, rap, reggae, rock, and soul. As well as this, I also listen to quite a few bands that probably don't really fit into a genre. I really love music. I feel that there's a song for almost every situation and emotion in life. Just as a painter can look at a painting and be able to understand the message and the emotions portrayed by a painting, I feel that music can function the exact same way. It saddens me that people are getting so much exposure on television and the radio for creating music with no emotions or messages of any kind. Not that I really have a gigantic problem with mainstream music, don't get me wrong, I like some of the songs on the radio just as much as the next guy, but I think it's kind of messed up for talentless people to get famous when there are many other musicians who put there heart and soul into their work and get almost no credit. Oh well, that's life. </rant>


Here's a list of a few of my all time favorite bands/artists and their respective genres. They're all REALLY good haha. I recommend checking one of the bands out, if their genre seems like something you'd listen to. 

Brand New (Alternative/Indie)
Circa Survive (Alternative/Experimental/Indie)
City & Colour (Acoustic/Indie/Folk)
For the Fallen Dreams (Melodic Hardcore)
It Prevails (Melodic Hardcore)
Park (Alternative/Indie/Emo)
Parkway Drive (Metalcore)
Taking Back Sunday (Alternative/Emo)

Also, here are a few bands that I've been listening to lately:

Angels & Airwaves (Alternative)
Chelsea Grin (Deathcore)
Dream On, Dreamer (Post-Harcore)
Take Charge (Deathcore)
1997 (Alternative/Indie)


Oh yeah, I like Ray Charles too. Ray was an excellent movie:

  12. There's too much focus on genres these days. I listen to whatever I find pleasant to listen to. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Gotthard, most likely due to the vocalists death a couple of weeks ago.
