Damn, I Love My Music

To the right, you see my three favorite bands: My Chemical Romance, Slipknot and Thirty Seconds to Mars. If you haven't deduced this yet, but I have a burning passion for music and I make sure that every moment in my life has music involved in it. It excites me, it comforts me and it befriended me from a very young age in life. I was four years old when the power of music struck me in my little noggin and I just happened to be with one of my favorite people in the world... my father. He was listening to the radio and one of his favorite songs came on and he cranked it. The song was All The Young Dudes by Mott the Hoople, a rarity for the radio, and I was immediately sucked into it. If you haven't heard of the song before, I'll have it posted in the blog. So we finished the song and my dad saw how intensely satisfied I was by the song so he started teaching me about classic rock music for the next 5 years. My dad never went to college, never had a good job or an above average house, but his heart was a thousand times the size of his pension and he made sure me and my little brother had the best childhood ever. Unfortunately, his plan for an amazing childhood was flawed when he and my mother got divorced, but he always made sure that when we were together there was good music and that we were having fun. Sorry, I'll get back on track. So having an extensive knowledge of the history of rock was a bonus and I could relate to a lot of music, then my brother fell in love with MTV Morning Radio and my life was changed drastically. I never thought I'd thank a music television show other than VH1 Classic, but MTV introduced me to two of my favorite bands, Slipknot and Thirty Seconds to Mars. About the time that All Hope is Gone came out, we started watching it every morning before school and they displayed all the latest hits and one of them happened to be Psychosocial. I automatically fell in love and that day after school I went out and purchased their most popular album Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses. I heard about Thirty Seconds to Mars because they had an interview with them one day and I'm obviously extremely turned on by Jared Leto. So that's how I discovered them. I actually didn't discover My Chemical Romance until I was 17. I was suffering horribly from my lifelong depression and psychosis and I was at work and I heard Welcome to the Black Parade and it almost made me start balling in front of everyone I thought it was so beautiful. So ever since December 13, 2011 I have been obsessed and addicted to Gerard Way and the gang of awesomeness. So this is why I am truly in love with music, its been with me forever. Other bands that I really enjoy consist of Billy Talent, Aiden, Halestorm, Children of Bodom, Bullet for my Valentine, Pierce the Veil, A Day to Remember, and, to make this list short, Pink Floyd. Have a nice day everyone.
