POP/EDM MUSIC

I find the majority of pop music to be very disposable at the moment. Name a song post 2010 that is a well crafted pop gem? There are a few I can think of, are the musicians still popular/relevant? If I want to hear pop music there are a handful of things I’ll go to. Remember this is just my take on the subject.

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “S” for System of a Down!

OK, there’s people all over the world reading this. Subscribe if you like? I wont use your email or Facebook for anything. It’s safe, don’t worry about it.

Why am I not surprised by this? You knew someone was going to say something regarding Slayer?

How is Slayer attacking Jesus Christ? In Europe there are how many Church Burning black/satanic metal bands? Has Slayer or Iron Maiden ever burnt down a church? Not that I can think of. If you don’t like it, leave it alone. Slayer thanks you for the advertisement! I can listen to Slayer, but after a ½ hour it sounds a little repetitive? I get tired of a guy yelling at me, yelling not growling death metal vocals you can’t understand.

Cool video from “Swedish House Mafia’s” Steve Angello. I’ve never heard of this person or group, but I do like it. Not rock or metal.

I haven’t really paid much attention to “Radiohead” or singer “Thom Yorke” since the release of their 4th album “Kid A” that was released October 2nd 2000.

A Metallica fan was murdered?

I like the new album by Finger Eleven. $45+ is quite a bit to see them in a bar though? The Saskatoon show in O’Brians Event Center for that amount is respectable. Great venue, boring drive!

Sorry, this popped up as a suggestion on www.youtube.com Hahahahaha!

I wish I could go to this show, but it’s tomorrow, Thursday, I don’t go out unless it’s a weekend usually.

The Rolling Stones aren’t done yet! Personally I think they should stop recording & just tour their 500 albums they already have?

Limp Bizkit’s guitarist Wes Borland lands DIY renovation show. I just think it’s weird they’ve made a career out of the music they play.

If you’re getting this through Facebook, feel invited to like & share this! Facebook or the actual website give this a second to load all of the links. Some days youtube.com is a little wonky?

Songs I like. “The Proclaimers” bring it on haters!

MY FRIDAY!!!

OK, I’m at 51 or 52 subscribers now you do the work please? If I see this 100 times that’s fine, please spread the word?

ALWAYS come to the site, you might be missing something in the email? There are multiple youtube links on every blog. I use “Google Chrome” on my desktop PC. “Safari” works on my mother mac laptop as a browser if you come to the site. Facebook links & youtube links do not work or even appear on my mother’s email, but she can see EVERYTHING when she comes to the site itself.

I can’t see who comes to the site but I can see how many times a country views the site. From now on I recommend you come to the site. Consider the emails as a facebook notification that there’s a new post.

Kim has an E.D.O. tomorrow. That means no blog on Friday this week. Be sure to watch the Rock It Out Blog on every Friday especially. Really good discussions on Fridays! I’ll be here checking email & facebook tomorrow.

Rock It Out Blog from Wednesday. Yes, every musician with a roadie should be really thankful for their roadie(s). That’s something I don’t miss, hauling my guitar amplifier & guitars home at 2:00am after a show. Roadies have a difficult, thankless job, so difficult there’s a roadie school!

Here you go rap fans “Run the Jewels”. Rap & I don’t really get along, so I can’t tell you anything about it, sorry?

In Flames, “Take this knife”

That’s still not as bad as the snare drum on their “St. Anger” album

I’m still a U2 fan, just not a hard core fan like I once was.
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/videos/watch-u2-perform-sweetest-thing-with-bono-impersonator-20150527 This song first appeared on the 1980 release of “Boy” then again on the album “Under a Blood Red Sky” released in 1983.

Now heavier music is my thing.

IF Kerry King ever learns how to guitar solo on key, then I’ll be a Slayer fan.

Good grief he’s dead let him R.I.P. & leave his family alone. No amount of money can undo whatever happened in the past whether it’s true or not.

Rock music is still here, just kinder. Brand new rock band doing quite well for themselves, Royal Blood not metal, rock!

Look at that! Third Ion above Pantera’s Greatest Hits album currently sitting at number 14! Can I ask what the heck is Five Finger Death Punch doing on a metal chart, or any chart for that matter?

Dave Grohl’s facebook page shared it, so here it is I think this is my favourite track on the new album.

I asked a question yesterday about Tool & got zero responses, that tells me you either missed it, don’t like Tool, which is fine or you’re not reading this. It’s interactive, so I’d really like some feedback. If this site is just for me, there’s really no point in me writing it. This is more for other people, not me.

Man I’m old! 24 years ago Smashing Pumpkins released “Gish”. 1991 I was 11 years old & hated “grunge” music at the time.

Songs I like. “HIM” courtesy of Elka Blahbledyblahblah! I think I’d have to go with the original Chris Isaak version.
