What's so wrong with listening to music nowadays?
And could someone please tell me what religion has to do with it?
I was just listening to my Anti-flag CD, and of course, its too loud for my grandpa (even though he watches TV a LOT louder), so he comes over and asks what I'm listening to, so I bring up the playlist, and tell him its Anti-flag, and he kinda flips out a little, then asks, "What, are they against the country?" in this appalled kind of voice, then sits in his chair. So, I whirl around im my chair to face him, really pissed off, and, "No, Anti-flag are NOT anti-America. They're anti-capitalism, anti-classism, anti-homophobia, and anti-basically-everything-that-has-corrupted-this-country-and-run-it-into-the-ground." Then there was a little shpiel on how I shouldn't complain, that I should DO something about it, and how he cant stand people who complain about it and don't vote. Well, guess what Mr. I'm-smarter-because-I'm-older? I'm 14 years old. So...unless they moved the voting age.... Oh, and apparently, being unpatriotic is a sin nowadays. Yep, thats right. Lets see if the agnostic here gives a shit.
It's those corporate fuckers who ruined music anyway. Over Christmas break, I went to get a Metallica CD out from the library, but my grandpa wouldn't hear of it, because it had the parental advisory label on it. There was nothing wrong with the lyrics, I read them beforehand, but no, the sticker MUST BE TRUTH!! The sticker is right up there with God, THE STICKER KNOWS ALL!!!
So, because of this little sticker, kids may not be able to listen to perfectly fine music, as long as their living with parents "who have values." And what about file sharing? If the music industry was going to complain, then they should have thought about that BEFORE Napster.
Umm..yeah..that was my rant for now. outie.
