Let’s Get Rocked!

My Top 10 Music Videos

The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) took place less than a week ago, but does anyone care anymore? Maybe in the 90s, yes. But now, MTV is all about the drama and reality shows, so the channel lost its credentials a long time ago. What’s the purpose of music videos, anyways? AC/DC never cared… Continue Reading →

YouTube Is An Addiction…Please Help Me!

You can say this is a sequel to my previous post titled, Is YouTube a Distraction or a Lifestyle? That post was from March 6, 2020 (pre-COVID) and I thought it’d be good to do an update on how I feel about that argument. After all, I’ve been stuck mostly at home for the past… Continue Reading →

My Top 10 Disney Channel Original Movie Songs

Before I got into rock music, a lot of my favorite songs came from Nickelodeon and Disney Channel, especially Disney Channel Original Movies (DCOMs).

My Trouble with CD Cases

I didn’t start collecting CDs seriously until last year during the pandemic, but I still have my Justin Bieber and One Direction CDs that I begged my parents to get me in my tween years. I got rid of Sonny with a Chance (2010), Lemonade Mouth (2011), and Justin Bieber’s Believe (2012), however. I tossed… Continue Reading →

Songs with the Same Title – Saxon Edition

I was fascinated by the new wave of British heavy metal, so I thought why not do a post about one of the most notable bands from that movement, Saxon, since Sea of Tranquility talks very highly of them. What better way to get a taste of Saxon than to include them in my Songs… Continue Reading →

My Dream Setlist for AC/DC

So in late September 2020, I did a post talking about which songs AC/DC should add to their setlist, so if you haven’t checked that out, you can click the link here!

‘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 →

Iron Maiden’s ‘Somewhere in Time’ is Mostly Filled with Awesomeness | Album Review

From Piece of Mind (1983), we’re going to flash forward to 1986. It was another great year for new music with Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet, Metallica’s Master of Puppets, Van Halen’s 5150, Megadeth’s Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?, Queen’s A Kind of Magic, and Iron Maiden’s Somewhere in Time. The latter was the second Iron… 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

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 →
