Just wondering if anyone else is from the scene. Did you find yourself listening to ''happy'' music once you started changing your eating habits? :P Also like to know if anyone is attending the Kinetik Fest in montreal. Please feel free to message me :)
love rise against! but i have to admit, i only like their old stuff. i respect their new albums, but it doesn't resonate with me.
im kind of a freak in my own way covered in tattoos and what not i still listen to the same music happy music honestly makes me feel out of place most the time i like to think music comes from some sort of suffering :P its the 16 year old goth kid in me
Hells yes. I love industrial, punk, and metal along with many other types of music as well. To me that is happy music, especially Skinny Puppy! I have been to the kinetik festical twice before, but unfortunately will not be attending this year.
Skinny Puppy f*** yeah!
I was into that kind of stuff, also enjoyed breakcore. My fav always was and will be dark cabaret. I still like dark music a lot, but more the hopeful and sarcastic kind. What i don't enjoy so much anymore is purely melancholic music, or music that is sort of hopeless, where they become the victims, and where people indulge in problems i can not relate to anymore ('my life is so miserable because my boyfriend treats me badly bladibla').
I don't think i like happier music now though. All my organs still cringe when i hear things like happy peppy reggae or sunshine tunes (like 'something over the rainbow by that ukulele guy, oh my god it hurts really bad).
I guess i still like smart music, and smart music is statistically more often written in the minor mode, which has a dark edge to it (i worked in music analysis for a while).
I grew up in the South Florida punk scene from 1989 onward.
Here's John Joseph from the Cro-Mags promoting his book, "Meat Is For Pussies".
electroash- props for wumpscut! they're awesome. for metal, anyone here like opeth? i'm also a sucker for classic metal, metallica, iron maiden, slayer, etc. also, big fan of whitechapel. i definitely am a punk at heart though, give me the misfits, social d, leftover crack, morning glory, propaghandi, bad brains, no ca$h, all that stuff. i also lovelovelove mustard plug and streetlight manifesto, any ska lovers here?
i stopped drinking/smoking/parting but i am more metal than ever!! definitely still a freak ;)
Started listening to punk rock music at the age of 12 and never stopped
I love old school metal ( Celtic Frost, early Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate etc) and Black metal (Epsecially Darkthrone!) but right now I'm on an a early 80's post punk kick, (Siouxie and the Banshees, Killing Joke, Early Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus, Joy Division etc).
Most of the music I like I find quite happy anyway, although I know others may not feel that way... It's an energy thing for me rather than just the message or lyrics.
