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...

Do Artists Need to Play Their Hits at Concerts?
It depends! For any artist, they need to have popular tunes to sell records. But sometimes, overplaying the hits can be a bit much at times. It is necessary, though; at a Bon Jovi concert, for example, the crowd would be upset if they don't play "Bad Medicine," "Wanted Dead Or Alive," or "Livin' On... Continue Reading →
AC/DC’s ‘Blow Up Your Video’ Is Um…Interesting | Album Review
AC/DC's Blow Up Your Video, their eleventh studio album (tenth internationally), supposedly, was their comeback album. I see things otherwise! There were only like four tracks I liked, out of the ten on there. The reasons being the song titles were lame ("Kissin' Dynamite" made me cringe so hard), choruses were not the greatest, and...

AC/DC’s ‘Fly on the Wall’ is Not as Bad as People Think | Album Review
It seems that AC/DC hit rock bottom when they released their tenth (ninth internationally) studio album titled, Fly on the Wall on June 28, 1985. At the time, MTV and 80s hair metal bands were the next big thing. As a way to stand out, AC/DC decided to make the album as raw and real as possible,... Continue Reading →
AC/DC’s ‘Flick of the Switch’ Is a Raw Masterpiece | Album Review
AC/DC's Flick of the Switch (1983) was their eighth studio album released internationally and their ninth album released in Australia. Besides being the third AC/DC album to feature Brian Johnson on vocals, it was also the final one to feature drummer Phil Rudd before his eleven-year departure from the band. The previous three albums got produced by... Continue Reading →
AC/DC’s ‘For Those About to Rock’ Kicks A**! | Album Review
Honestly, when I first got into AC/DC, I was blasting For Those About to Rock We Salute You (1981) more than Back in Black (1980) because I've heard "You Shook Me All Night Long" a million times, but you don't hear "Evil Walks" or "Let's Get It Up" often. I wanted to dive deep into the band's catalog, so... Continue Reading →
Def Leppard’s ‘Hysteria’ Turns 33!
On August 3, 1987, exactly 33 years ago, hard rock legends Def Leppard released their fourth studio album titled Hysteria. The album was the result of dreadful hours in the studio, record-producer Mutt Lange's perfectionism, the never-ending debt of making the album, and drummer Rick Allen's determination to be the best f*cking one-armed drummer in the...

I Miss Disneyland So Much, It’s Not Even Funny!
The last time I went to Disneyland was summer 2018, right before Pixar Pier opened! I was hoping to go to Disneyland this summer after the Stadium Tour in San Francisco. But of course, both of those events got canceled due to COVID-19. I've been watching more Disneyland videos on YouTube recently, and they remind... Continue Reading →
