(4th time I’m trying to upload this picture, IG kept deleting it. Sorry 😕) Let's talk music videos! I know, I keep bringing them up over & over again but I know a lot of you have very fond & strong memories of them too. One album that came with great music videos in my opinion is Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Californication" & I'm going to focus on two of them. Let's start with "Californication", a song where Kiedis sings "And little girls from Sweden dreams of silver screen quotation" which you know... I didn't know that many words in English but I knew what my country was called so this line made me bring out the old dictionary & translate the whole thing. But back to the video, it plays like a video game, something I was obsessed with as a kid so it obviously spoke to me. My best friend & I spent most of our free time playing SSX at the time so the snowboarding parts where intensely fun but disappointingly short. The other video was "Otherside" & this one was something completely else. Dark. With a capital D. Heavily inspired by the movie "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" but to me, a child, it definitely looked like a cartoon. A dark, twisted, monochromatic, cartoon where people don't play on instruments but on electrical wires, rotating clocks & ropes. Where it's always night & hospitals are empty, cold & you receive some kind of gas that turns everything even darker, more twisted & then it all just repeats itself. It's incredible striking & still is to this day. Now I know the painful meaning behind the song & understand how well the video complements that. Still consider it to be one of the best music videos ever made. Do you agree with me? And do you have any particular music videos that made a huge impact on you? 🌶 #redhotchilipeppers#californication
I know I posted this picture not too long ago but I really think it needs a quick regram because it was originally posted at an odd time of day and my awesome 5th graders deserve all the credit they can get for this alternative class photo. 🤘😊 So do you recognize any of the "children" in the picture? 😆🤔 #sleeveface#davidbowie#prince
Day 17 of the #rocktobervinylchallenge#octobervinylchallenge — Blitzkrieg Bop aka Punk Rock — ok, so since the whole creation of the “Punk Rock” genre is based upon the principle of “no bulls**t” I’m gonna give it to you straight with no chaser... I’m not really the biggest fan of the “punk rock” genre! Don’t get me wrong, I do understand and appreciate the whole movement and I understand it’s significance and it’s impact on the youth of the 70s, 80s, 90s and now but it’s not really my “go-to” Rock genre. As you all know my favorites are soft rock, hard rock, alt rock, and metal rock. But I do love a song here and there The Clash, The Ramones (pictured here of course), The Sex Pistols and of course I love the early 90s punk bands such as Green Day & The Offspring and some 00s punk bands like Fall Out Boy, Paramore, and of course Panic! At the Disco. I’m very old school when it comes to music and it took me a while to get into metal music so I guess what I’m saying is that maybe I’ll try to give it another chance! Honestly, if you have any suggestions on where to start pls let me know! Anyways, the punk era started in the 1970s as a way to combat the music academy who claimed that Simon & Garfunkel and other types of soft rock/singer-songwriters were considered rock. The world was changing, ppl were angry and they needed no bulls**t rock! And guess what, they did it! New York City and London were the main cities where this type of rock originated! Ok, with all that being said thanks to the @recstorecrawl for this Ramones Live at the Rich Album and my BFFL @gabriellat for my Ramones self-titled Album! If you guys help me to get into punk, I might do a cool give-away when I reach 5K! What do ya think?! 🖤 also, don’t hate me for being so out of the punk loop 😂😭
Blink 182 - Enema of the state
Arguably their best album, it really shot them into commercial fame. I had just listened to Dude Ranch a few weeks before this came out and that's how I got to know about Blink.
When you're a teenager this album talks a lot about what's going on in your life, whether you like punk or not, those situations are there. And in the end who doesn't need a laugh at life?
Favourite Tracks: Aliens exist, Dumpweed, Adam's Song
