Saturday Night’s Alright For Commenting: 11/11/17

Hang out here at BRB this fine Saturday night and talk about whatever.

I grew up listening to 99.5 KISS in San Antonio, which plays the exact same songs to this day. I’d spend the weekends at my dad’s place, where I would drink Code Red Mountain Dew, play Diablo 2, go shoot hoops, and listen to a yellow boom box. It was all alternative rock from that era. Nirvana, Bush, Sound Garden, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, and it eventually gave way to Limp Bizkit, Creed, Foo Fighters, Korn, and Godsmak. I loved almost all of it, except for the songs that were way too adult, even though that’s what I loved about that music. I loved that it wasn’t The Backstreet Boys or Smashmouth. I loved splaying monsters. I loved being able to do whatever the hell I want.

Eventually it gave way to a rebirth in pop music and slowed down to fuzzy sweaters and indie rock. It became a genre of music thought of as lame and crappy, eventually forgotten. Then 2017 came, and like smash mouth football, 1990s alternative rock is back, baby! It has been expanded upon by the release of these three albums.

Brand New: Science Fiction

Manchester Orchestra: A Black Mile To The Surface

Citizen: As You Please

Anyways, that’s all I got. The floor is yours to discuss whatever. Just remember all the standard commenting rules apply.
