Last week I was busy going to see one of my favorite famous people in the world, Conan O’Brien (We’re boys) so I didn’t get a chance to do this segment so I have decided to double the dose today. I have been writing about a lot of Hip Hop lately so here is a bit of a change of pace.
First: System of a Down – “Spiders”.
I loved this band so much because they were so unique. They had political undertones and then later they had political overtones in their songs. I will still get into a mood to listen to them. I give a lot of credit to my brother for purchasing this. Their self-titled album truly did blow my mind (and the speakers on our family van). They are talented and I hear making a comeback. Good for them. Enjoy.
Second: Pantera – “Walk”
I played basketball in my basement on a mini-hoop blaring this song numerous times. It is simple, straightforward, and raw. Not to mention there is an awesome guitar solo. I was taking lessons at the time and really wanted to be able to do this type of stuff (I ended up not practicing ever). I learned then that you can’t be a natural at playing guitar. You have to practice. Rats. Enjoy.
