Let’s Get Rocked!

‘Grease’ Doesn’t Make Sense! | DVD Review

The first time I saw Grease (1978), I was around eight or nine years-old (I don’t remember the details, but I was pretty young). I was young enough to be scared of the animated theme song that played in the beginning of the movie. Thanks to The Wiggles and their horrible animated films/clips, I developed… Continue Reading →

Thoughts on My Last Semester of College

Final grades for the University of Hawaii at Manoa were posted on Wednesday, May 19, 2021, which means I am officially a college graduate for the class of spring 2021! How does it feel? I don’t feel that different, to be honest. Could it be because I didn’t participate in my university’s hybrid commencement ceremony?… Continue Reading →

My Top 10 Richie Sambora Songs

Disclaimer: I’m sorry if I offend any Jon Bon Jovi fans throughout this post, as these are strictly my opinions and Richie Sambora was the reason why I got into Bon Jovi in the first place. Richie Sambora hit it big when he became the guitarist for Bon Jovi. From 1983 to 2013, Sambora helped… Continue Reading →

Songs with the Same Title – Slayer Edition

We’re back with another edition to the Songs with the Same Title series, and this time, we’re covering the thrash metal band known as Slayer. Last time when I took on Thin Lizzy, I said that I’d be interested in checking out more Slayer songs, so this is the perfect opportunity to do so. Once… Continue Reading →

This is a follow-up to my previous post titled, 10 Overplayed Songs From Bands I Like, so if you haven’t already, go check it out! Instead of talking about the overrated songs, this post will focus on the underrated songs from bands I like. As a warning, not all of the bands from the previous… Continue Reading →

My Dream Setlist for Def Leppard

One of my favorite YouTube channels at the moment, Sea of Tranquility, did a series throughout the month of March where they created dream setlists for their favorite bands. They didn’t do one for Def Leppard unfortunately, and around the same time, I came across this article from Ultimate Classic Rock from 2011 titled, “Def… Continue Reading →

10 Overplayed Songs From Bands I Like

The title is a nicer way of saying I like the bands, but I never want to hear these songs ever again. In some cases, I don’t even want to buy the corresponding albums because I hate these songs so much. The worst part is that these bands play the hits religiously at their shows… Continue Reading →

Is “Bohemian Rhapsody” Queen’s Best Song?

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) was playing on TV a few weeks ago, so I thought, “why not talk about Queen”? After all, this band got me into rock music and opened my eyes to bands such as AC/DC, Def Leppard, Scorpions, Boston, and Black Sabbath. Though I don’t listen to Queen as much as I did two… Continue Reading →

AC/DC’s ‘Power Up’ is For Mal! | Album Review

Travel back to the Rock or Bust era. Phil Rudd had to face his demons and couldn’t participate in the tour; Brian Johnson had to step out during the fifth leg of the tour or risk hearing loss, and Cliff Williams decided that he had enough. By that point, the only members left were Angus Young and… Continue Reading →

Confessions of a One Direction Fangirl

Before any of you click away, being a One Direction fangirl isn’t always rainbows and sunshine; mentally, it has messed me up pretty badly. Like most of my YouTube addictions, I watched interviews and performances of theirs whenever I had the chance. However, I was also comparing myself to the band members’ girlfriends. Not that… Continue Reading →

My Top Ten Def Leppard Songs

I previously wrote a post titled, My Top Five Def Leppard Songs I Can’t Live Without in December 2019, but that was early in my Def Leppard obsession. I’ve always wanted to write an updated list of my top five Def Leppard songs because a lot can happen in a year, but I never got around to… Continue Reading →

Dear Disneyland…

Dear Disneyland: I’ve only visited the happiest place on earth five times in my youth, but I consider Disneyland to be my home and sacred place. I fell in love with Disney when I was five years old after being granted a wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation to go to Disney World. The characters and… Continue Reading →

AC/DC Fought Hard and Gave Us ‘Rock or Bust’ | Album Review

Now we get to the sad album, the last AC/DC album released before former rhythm guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young passed away on November 18, 2017. Rock or Bust (2014) is the band’s 16th (15th internationally released) studio album. What’s interesting about this album is that it’s the first to feature Mal and Angus’ nephew, Stevie… Continue Reading →

AC/DC’s ‘Black Ice’ Lacks Originality, But it Has the Heart! | Album Review

Moving on from Stiff Upper Lip (2000), today, I’ll be focusing on Black Ice (2008). It is the band’s 15th (14th internationally released) studio album. Black Ice‘s development got stalled due to bassist Cliff Williams recovering from a hand injury and AC/DC changing record labels. Not only is it the band’s longest gap between studio albums (eight years), but it… Continue Reading →

Songs with the Same Title – Judas Priest Edition

We’re back with another edition to the Songs with the Same Title series! I previously covered rock band Kiss, and now we’re shifting focus to the heavy metal band; Judas Priest. If you’re new to the series, there will be six rounds, and I’ll pick my preferred song from each one. In the end, I’ll choose the winner… Continue Reading →

AC/DC’s ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ is a Banger! | Album Review

For my last AC/DC review, I gave my thoughts on Ballbreaker (1995), now I’ll be looking at Stiff Upper Lip (2000). I bought the Stiff Upper Lip album in June/July; it’s all a blur now. The point is, we’re here, and I’m ready to share my thoughts on the band’s 14th (13th internationally released) studio album. “Stiff Upper Lip” started the… Continue Reading →

Five Disney Channel Original Movie Songs That Rock

Disney Channel Original Movies (DCOMs) were huge for me, not so much now! But everything from Camp Rock, High School Musical, Lemonade Mouth, and Stuck in the Suburbs, those films were my childhood. Some of the movies were cheesy as heck, but they came with great songs. Most of them were pop songs, but they had some rock moments… Continue Reading →

Songs with the Same Title – Kiss Edition

Happy new year, everyone! How about we do another band for the Songs with the Same Title series to kick off the new year? The next act I will cover in the series will be Kiss. Unlike Bon Jovi, it was harder to find Kiss songs with the same title as other artists’ songs, so I had to… Continue Reading →

Reflections on the Year 2020

First of all, I know I had a collage for last year’s post reflecting on 2019, but I didn’t do that for 2020 because I didn’t do much other than write on my blog, watch a lot of YouTube, and listen to bands such as Def Leppard, AC/DC, Metallica, and Iron Maiden. So nothing special, to be… Continue Reading →

Thank Goodness AC/DC Brought Back Phil Rudd for ‘Ballbreaker’! | Album Review

AC/DC was “back in business,” thanks to the success of 1990s The Razors Edge, which contains “Moneytalks” and “Thunderstruck.” It was their first (and only) studio album with drummer Chris Slade; though, he wouldn’t last long as fate would have it that the boys would reunite with former drummer Phil Rudd, who left some big shoes… Continue Reading →

‘AC/DC Live’ is Pretty Great! | Album Review

This past Friday, while helping my mom do some last-minute Christmas shopping, I went to the Book Off at Pearlridge, hoping that I’d find at least one new AC/DC album to add to my collection. It wasn’t The Razors Edge (1990), but it was something better, AC/DC Live: 2 CD Collector’s Edition (1992). As you’ve read on my previous AC/DC… Continue Reading →

My Favorite Songs – Fall 2020

My last exam is this Wednesday, so I thought now would be the perfect time to wrap up Fall 2020 and talk about my favorite songs from that time since I had so much fun making My Favorite Songs – Summer 2020 post. I tried to diversify this list by including more songs by different artists, but… Continue Reading →
