“What kinda music do you listen to?”

Hey, before you continue, I have a question for you, Are you interested in taking out a loan to consolidate debt?

If you use my Credible Referral link, you can get a cash bonus if you take out a loan.

It can be a Personal Loan or a loan to consolidate Student Loans.

Either way, if you use my link, it can be a “win-win” for us both by saving us money and getting money now!

In about 6th or 7th grade a kid named Robert moved to town and changed my life forever.

He asked me that question and all I could piece together was something like, “I dunno, country I guess.”

I should explain.

We moved to Texas when I was just about to turn 6.

From there I never really developed my own taste in music and my dad got into country music.

Whenever I rode in the car with him, we would listen to the likes of Garth Brooks, Hank Williams Jr., George Strait, Alan Jackson, and others.

I liked to alright…

Robert had different ideas.

Today I don’t remember where Robert moved here from, but he did move in across the street from us and so we became friends.

He got me into stuff I had never even heard of, like Blink-182, Propagandhi, and Screeching Weasel to name a few.

From there I started getting into all sorts of other music outside of just country.

Eventually, I got into the side project bands and fringe bands like The Methadones and The Riverdales and The Dead Milkmen.

For a bit I really got into the ska genre, partly due to a couple of local ska bands at my high school.

Of course I was into Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

But I would listen to anything with a horn section.

By now, you may be wondering, “Why bring all this crap up?”

And I don’t know, I just remembered that Screeching Weasel had a song and album titled “My Brain Hurts” and right now mine really does.

Mostly anytime I go back and listen to any of this type of music I think it sucks.

And I will probably feel the same way in ten years from now about the music I like now.
