Let’s Get Rocked!

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 →

I’m Finally 22, So What’s New?

On Monday, Nov. 30, I turned 22 years old, and no, I did not sing Taylor Swift’s “22” that day. But it was a great day; I got to see my grandma, I had chicken katsu from L&L for lunch, two of my Amazon CDs came in, I had spring rolls and fried shrimp for… Continue Reading →

Was AC/DC’s ‘The Razors Edge’ Their Big Comeback?!? | Album Review

I’ve been all over the place with my AC/DC reviews recently. But this time, I’m going to take on the band’s follow-up to Blow Up Your Video (1988). I reviewed that album back in August, which you can find over here. Anyway, today we’re focusing on The Razors Edge (1990), which supposedly is AC/DC “comeback” album; I say otherwise, however. … Continue Reading →

Ten Things I’m Thankful For

Thanksgiving is this Thursday, so I thought that now would be a good time to talk about ten things I’m thankful for in my life. 2020 has been a rough year, but showing gratitude for the positive things can improve one’s mood in many ways. Some of these things are a bit weird, but please… Continue Reading →

Songs with the Same Title – Bon Jovi Edition

I started a series back in July, where I talk about songs with the same title, but I only did one so far (Songs with the Same Title – Backstreet Boys Edition). Now I’m bringing it back, and this time, the main focus will be on Bon Jovi. However, I’ll only be focusing on songs… Continue Reading →

My Top Five AC/DC Songs

AC/DC released their 17th studio album today, so in celebration of that, I’ll be sharing my top five AC/DC songs of all time. Why bring up only five? That’s because ten songs would be too easy; come on! I don’t do things the easy way, in case you haven’t noticed! Also, I’m only doing one… Continue Reading →

Lessons from the Late Great Steve Clark

It’s been a while since I talked about Steve Clark, but he was an incredible individual. I’ve never met him, but I wish I did. He has changed my perspective on life and the way I look at different types of music, specifically rock and heavy metal music. I won’t get into how Clark died… Continue Reading →

The Best of Def Leppard Deep Cuts and Rarities

Inspired by Mike Ladano’s Highway to Lists: Live Streaming AC/DC Deep Cuts post, I thought it’d be fun to do a similar post about Def Leppard deep cuts. But I’ll also include rare hits that didn’t make their studio albums; yet are still worth mentioning. I’ve created some guidelines to make things easier for me. So… Continue Reading →

Metallica’s ‘Load’ Had Fans Shook! | Album Review

Metallica’s Load (1996) is known for being criminally underrated by many fans. So, if you know me, I’m all about checking out the underrated albums because you can get sick of the popular songs, but you can’t get sick of the lesser-known songs!  If I could sum up the Load album in one sentence, it’d be this: Metallica playing… Continue Reading →

AC/DC IS BACK – Here’s What You Need to Know!

It’s official, AC/DC is back! There are no more assumptions about whether or not Cliff Williams rejoined the group or if an album is yet to be released. It’s happening, and the boys are back better than ever! Following the leaked photos posted on the band’s website about two weeks ago (then removed shortly afterward),… Continue Reading →

The Best Contestants to Ever Exist on ‘American Idol’

American Idol may not be as good as it was in the old days, but they did have some memorable contestants over the years. We have the people that should’ve gone further in the competition, the ones that are doing well post-Idol career-wise, and we have those people that need recognition because they’re too good not… Continue Reading →

Can an AC/DC Reunion Save 2020?!?!

I’m not the person that keeps up with the current times, but this one is an exception. AC/DC IS BACK, BABY!!!! People are going crazy over the recently leaked photos of the band, possibly working on something for us fans to enjoy in the future. Journalists have acknowledged that lead vocalist Brian Johnson and drummer… Continue Reading →

Which Songs Should AC/DC Add to Their Setlist?

Even if there’s only a slight chance of AC/DC reuniting for one final album and tour, I want to prepare myself for the day I get to see these rockers in person. The lineup would consist of hopefully, Angus Young, Brian Johnson, Stevie Young, Cliff Williams, and Phil Rudd. After watching many virtual AC/DC concerts,… Continue Reading →

Which Songs Should Def Leppard Add to Their Setlist?

I love Def Leppard, but sometimes I feel like their setlists have gotten pretty predictable throughout the years. They still sound great live, and the experience itself is mind-blowing (from what I’ve researched), but I think it’s time for the boys to spice up their concerts. Their catalog is so diverse, yet they play the… Continue Reading →

My Favorite Songs – Summer 2020

As my summer comes to an end, I’ve realized my music taste has shifted drastically within the past three months. I went from glam metal’s Def Leppard, to pop rock’s Bon Jovi, to 90s pop’s Backstreet Boys, to heavy metal’s Metallica, to rock ‘n’ roll’s AC/DC. My music style is all over the place, but… Continue Reading →
