    Weirdo Janet Napolitano says "get rid of your gun and carry scissors" she would like to see all school teachers in America armed with scissors, they could carry them in little Shoulder Holsters.

    That's what my grandparents said about rock and roll.....and what my parents said about The Beatles and Led Zepplin.

    That being said, I don't especially like most of it - but it does take a sort of talent and a good sense of rhyme and rhythm.

    I also confess to owning just about every Eminen song ever done.

    Its as much music as Pop or Country is no?

    Give me Tupac, Biggy, Dre over Jason Aladean, Toby keith, Britney Spears, One Direction etc etc etc etc etc anyday of the week.

    PS - I should note what is considered "Rap" presently I will agree with you. The older, story telling, social commentary stuff is awesome IMHO.

    Big fan of Classic Rock Mrs.

    On a sad note my wife's three most hated bands are:
    1. Led Zepplin
    2. Beach Boys
    3. U2

    I guess it's a good thing she didn't bring that up during the courting process :)

    While I agree with her on #2, I fear her hatred of #1 and 3 have got to be grounds for something.

    MrP doesn't care for Zepplin, either, however, and I'm keeping him.

    Nobody's perfect.

    He and I don't agree on music too much, unfortunately. He's more into things like The Bloodhound Gang while I'm vintage Stones and Zep. He hates Tori Amos, I loves me some Tori. I hate most "alternative" music, he hates most southern rock bands.

    There's an age gap of a few years, combined with totally different backgrounds, lifestyles, regions, religions and education, and he was in college listening to Counting Crows while I was at home raising babies and singing along with Big Bird.

    We fight over the car radio all the time...it's even worse since we got Sirrius.

    hahaha Sounds similar to me and Mrs.Drewski.

    Shes got 4 years on me, and her life experience has been completely different than mine; thanks to softball we did meet. We are both huge music fans but somethings (such as Zep and U2) we differ on.

    I could talk about music all day...but my favs by Genre are:

    Classic Rock:
    Pink Floyd
    Beatles (after they discovered drugs)
    The Band
    Hendrix
    Zep
    Stones
    Doors
    Allman Bros.
    Sabbath
    Kinks

    Rap:
    Tupac
    Biggy
    Dre
    Beasties

    Alternative/Rock
    Kings of Leon
    Black Keys
    Tool
    Killers
    MGMT
    Butch Walker
    Radiohead
    Incubus
    Arcade Fire
    Coldplay
    Alabama Shakes
    Alice in Chains
    Cake

    Random:
    ADELE
    Marley

    The Mrs. flatters me (and possibly herself, by admission of the few years' gap.) Counting Crows was a few years after college for me. In college, I was heavily into Floyd & Talking heads, and grieving the departure of Peter Gabriel from Genesis, which I rebranded Geneside after he left. I also had a Dylan fixation, because he proved that a good writer didn't need to be able to sing or play the guitar. A while later I figured out that songwriting and performing with no real musical talent was reserved for Dylan and that Barry McGuire guy.

    I tried to hang with whatever was on the "alternative" radio station after that, but, well, age happens. I still have a soft spot for 80s/early 90s pop crap, but I'm pretty sure all music stopped being written after about 1995. Except Eminem, which we share. I've been meaning to listen to some Jay Z, since I liked "99 problems." Hit me.

    Now the Mrs. and I fight over whether to listen to jurassic or triassic rock, fiber is my drug of choice, and my street name is Low T.

    Haha I was doing loose math in my head regarding Counting Crows...I figured I had your age ballparked (from another thread on music). That threw me for a curve.

    Dylan is great too. Hurricane and Like a Rolling Stone are definitely amongst my personal faves .

    Give or take a few years, I agree with the bolded. Although there are some fanastic singer/songwriters still, Butch Walker coming to mind here. (You might know some of his songs which have been hits by other artists)


    One of the funnier things I have seen written here in a long time. :rofl:
