Music!

As many do, I really enjoy listening to music. Here is a list of pages that I made for bands that I have had a major obsession with in the past or just really like. I've tried to put them in order of when I got into them. I hope you enjoy them! Each page has their own design so please do not be alarmed when things get brighter or darker.

I think I'll give a little history on my previous music tastes. I remember early in my life I would listen to the soundtrack for Shrek a lot. I also listened to the music from Varekai which was a production put on by Cirque du Soleil (I was wrong about this. It was actually Le Best of Cirque du Soleil which made me laugh my ass off when I saw it). Afterwards, I did go through some sort of emo phase like how every kid is supposed to. That lasted from late elementary school to late middle school. During that phase I mainly listened to pop punk and some metalcore bands like Paramore, All Time Low, Forever the Sickest Kids, Escape the Fate, and My Chemical Romance (I highly suggest checking out videos made by the Cozy Representative if you're a former emo kid. He talks about a lot of bands during that era and their history). In middle school I started listening to more indie rock because I would mainly listen to whatever my brother listened to and he was putting that kind of stuff onto my iPod. This helped me get away from all that cringey emo music to something more respectable. I listened to bands like AJJ, Pixies, Neutral Milk Hotel, Daniel Johnston, the Beatles, Arcade Fire, Beulah, Silver Jews, and Vampire Weekend. I know some of those bands aren't indie rock like the Beatles, but some kids end up having a Beatles phase at one point and that happened to me during this time. Fortunately, I do not like most of these bands now. Indie rock is what I mainly listened to in high school until I became obsessed with Gorillaz in my junior year and then became obsessed with the Aquabats! after that. Now I just listen to whatever I want and don't need my brother to tell me what to do anymore.

I do listen to other bands, but I have problems with deviating from my current obsession so I usually listen to the same things over and over again until I find something new to latch onto. Some genres that I really enjoy now are ska and punk. I know none of the bands above fall underneath those genres besides the Aquabats! being ska at some points in time, but I do really like those genres. Right now I really like The Selecter, Krimewatch, Kittie, Bleed the Pigs, Elastica, Nova Twins, Saba Lou, and many more!
