SJW is not a synonym of "leftists" or "liberals". Left-wing and right-wing positions are based on economics. SJWs are left-authoritarians which means that they are not liberals. Don't paint all leftists or liberals with the same (misguided) brush.

    "Loathe" isn't a strong enough word to describe how I feel about the original version of this song, but Halestorm... Halestorm went and made it awesome.



    Can't say for sure if Halestorm is my new favorite group, but they're definitely in the top 5. And Lzzy is smokin' hot.

    I'm impressed. Now don't get me wrong, there is no building nor mountain in the world high enough for me to adequately express my contempt for Lady Gaga but that I actually liked. As a metal version I'm sure some people will try playing it backwards looking for satanic messages but that's better than playing an original Lady Gaga song backwards and finding out just what a fart sounds like going back in.

    Was listening to my big band radio and look who popped up in the que? Lady Gaga. I've got a real soft spot for any of the big band/USO music and while this isn't the best rendition I've heard of the song, it is definitely listenable.

    There's just something magical about the time period which this music comes from. We were industrious. America was still cool back then and it was at a time before jazz was just confined to "elevator music". It's the same music grandad fought Nazi tyranny to, back when you still had to open a can of whoop ass with a "church key". Forgive me, I'm getting nostalgic  :cool.

    My personal picks: Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, and the Andrews sisters.

    I love me some Volbeat.  Favorite station on pandora by far.

    Same here. I "discovered" Volbeat last week when my buddy put them on in the weight room. I was amazed at the wide range of styles and sounds within the same band. I've been listening to them all week since. My favorites are "Lonesome Rider," "Dead But Rising," "Lola Montez" and "Doc Holliday."





    Some of the lyrics from "Dead But Rising" struck home because they made me think of my pops and me and my oldest son off in the Marines:

    "I have been to the end of waters
    I have been to the end of earth
    I've been over mountains and riding the storms

    Dear son, your words have reached me
    And for that I can carry on
    I'll guide you in spirit. Today I'll be home..."

    I normally don't like hard rock, but that was a very well executed track in the genre. I like it  :thumbup1.

    Also the female singer. I've never heard of this band so I don't know her name, but wow  :-[.

    Full disclosure: I am not a Simon & Garfunkel fan, and I absolutely loathe the original version of this song, but Disturbed's cover version is absolutely incredible. Moving, even, and I almost never say that about music.

    Sound of silence. That was a very good share, raptor. Some of my favourite motivational "this is my jam" music is to go to Google play music and listen to "system of a down radio". That playlist is like something Skippy from MHI would listen to. Disturbed, Rob zombie, rage against the machine, etc. Truly great stuff.
