I've always liked this song from the moment it debuted. Strangely enough the first time, I heard it was on Rick Chase's afternoon show on KMEL. Even twenty plus years later, there's just something special about November Rain, and for me it's one of the few songs that perfect, everything comes together, from Axel's screechy ass voice, the piano, Slash's three guitar solos, and of course the strings, (I'm a sucker for strings.) 🤬 is just a beautiful record with a video that totally compliments the song.

Smells Like Teen Spirit just goes to muthafuckin' hard. Though I'm a lyric dude first, and for the longest time I didn't know what the lyrics to this song were, the 🤬 is just infectious, how can you not this song.

  • The first LPs by Bad Brains & the Dead Kennedys changed my ideas of music, and the first time I heard the Reign In Blood LP by Slayer I was blown away.

    I remember the first time I heard "teen spirit" was on the jam session segment on Inside the NBA, and I seen the video a hour later on MTV. That was the first time I liked a song that wasn't rap or R&B.

    After that it was "under the bridge" by Red Hot Chilli Peppers".

    i mean, growing up i would always listen to rock songs here and there inconspicuously behind closed doors. i was pretty much afraid of what my friends might think of me. because where im from no one listened to rock music (or at least no one i knew of did). but the first rock song that i can def. say that i fell in love with to the point of no longer giving a 🤬 what anyone thought and the one i would carelessly blast without the fear of anyone catching me was rage against the machine - killing in the name

    80's baby, so that's pretty hard since we grew up on pop,R&Brock n'roll, and then rap. Songs I think of are Janie's Got a Gun(Aerosmith), Dazed and Confused (Zepellin); just saw somebody else already put that, Under The Bridge (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Purple Rain was hard on rock n'roll,

    I don't recall the first, but one of the first was What's Up by the Four Non-Blondes.

    Linda Perry went on to produce albums for two of my favorite pop singers, P!nk and Christina Aguilera...who knew?

    I liked "Mouth of War" by Pantera mainly because of the guitarsolo's and rifs and this was before the skinhead sympathizer story surfaced. Even after the skinhead sh*t I liked this particular joint. I always kept it to myself though.

    I liked that video for "Black hole sun" by Soundgarden. I think Pantera came out earlier though. This came out around '00 but I liked the video for "Cryptonite" from 3 Doors Down.

    "What's Up" by Four Non-Blondes wasn't really hardrock or metal though. I guess you could call it alternative though.
