Lyrics - I Would Part Oceans, But I'm Powerless At Sea

New lyrics. Enjoy.   I Would Part Oceans, But I'm Powerless At Sea   It's not something that I usually do Try to rotate through my comfort zone for someone new I guess you're just that worth it to me Clearly, or else I wouldn't catch the retrograde in the sea   I can't sleep and I can barely think The phantoms are changing and the battery's low These notes on my phone are replacing the ink and I go and I go until I have these thoughts to show   ---   Raised in the age of the hopeless romantics all the chemical mixtures come down to semantics and I wish this game show would pull the lights from me The heat of the spotlight evaporates all that I want to be   But maybe someday the proper notes will play and I'll find the words that I really do want to convey I can't say when the multiverses collide or when my life will finally subside   But until then Now and again The anxiety creeps up from behind the curtain The one I thought I had covered for certain On the screen and filling the spaces I left empty in my broken faces It pulls up a chair in the front row just to show dominance, like I don't know I know, oh I know   ---   I've been blissfully alone for so long that I don't know how to cope The low glow of the lights below show the shadows that I elope Nobody's supposed to be here, the memories are so unclear and the alcohol brings back the starlit days of my isolation, the conversations with myself always draw far too near   Nobody's supposed to be here, the memories are so unclear Most of me is the silent introvert but this puzzle has more cracks than it appears Nobody used to come near, my mind was overrun by fear But this slipped my grip when my eyes tripped and you wandered over here

1/8th of My Life Crisis

I'm having such a hard time with my life right now. I'm kind of at a crossroads with what I want to do with my life. I'd like to go to medical school with a forensics emphasis so I could be a medical examiner, but I'd also really like to go to medical school and nursing school to be a nurse in the NICU, but I'd also really like to go to piercing school to be a professional piercer, but I'd also really like to go to cosmetology school... Do you see my dilemma? None of these are really my "dream job." Just casual interests. The only problem is I live in 'Merica and education here is so damned expensive and I'm nervous about going to school for so long and spending so much money, and ending up hating what I studied and paying for a degree I'll never use until I die. (Such a positive thing - debt until I die).  Any advice??

Green Day: Religious Influences in Music

So, I've noticed in a lot of Green Day's music they mention/reference religion. This can be seen in American Idiot with songs like "St. Jimmy" and "Jesus of Suburbia," being some of the obvious ones.  In 21st Century Breakdown, almost every song mentions religion in the form of saints, Christians, and religious figures. In an interview with Bill Maher (I know he's not in the best standing, but the interview is still a good one) right after the release of 21CB Billie talks about religion and how his mother's religious views impacted his life and songwriting. Here's the link: Enjoy! Please let me know what you think. 
 

New Discovered Albums (Months of August and September)

https://driver93.wordpress.com/2018/11/11/new-discovered-albums-months-of-august-and-september/ Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa – Domingo (1967) 8.5/10 Peter Buck of R.E.M recommended this album. It’s Brazilian but it’s an amazing album. Probably only accessible on Spotify and vinyl (as I couldn’t find a CD of this album) But has this easy-listening and folk infusion. The vocals are clean. The instrumentals are also pretty clean and easy to listen to. I think this could be an essential record for people into world music. And what I consider world music as an American is foreign for starters, and has an ethnic vibe to whatever region the artists belong to. On a personal base, I wanted to give this album at least two listen throughs before making a rating. This is the first Folk and World infused album I’ve given a chance to, and will listen to it again. Esprit 空想 – 200% Electronica (2017) 7/10 A chillwave/vaporwave type of album. Definitely a must for avid vaporwave fans. People think of Vaporwave and only think of Macintosh Plus/Vektroid. Esprit 空想 has this chillwave vibe to their work; well with this album anyways. Generally I can’t give vaporwave more than an 8 out of 10, because of how it does sometimes blend into each song, and that can be overwhelming for my sensory issues sometimes; and could make me very tired easily. Not to say that this album is bad by any means, personally I have to be in the mood for this type of music anyways. It’s definitely not something I’d play on repeat every day. Florence + The Machine – High As Hope (2018) 8.5/10 I’ve heard mixed reviews about this album. From the first lesson, it definitely is a hit with me. I think people didn’t like the polarizing of the tracks. Honestly, this is Florence at her finest, with her vocal range. Yes, this album might not appeal to the mainstream media (people who are fanatics of mumble rap or trending music) Objectively my favorite tracks are: Sky Full of Song, Hunger, and Grace. Indie for sure, through and through. I wanted to give this somewhere between an eight and nine for ratings, so I decided 8.5 would be appropriate (just from my personal tastes). Earth – The Bees Made Honey in The Lion’s Skull (2009) 7.5/10 Introductory to Drone Metal/Rock. If you want to get into that genre, I suggest you all listen to anything by Earth really. This album in particular, I found via podcasts on iTunes circa 2009ish when I was a 10th grader in high school. For me personally, it does get to be a little boring after the first 2 tracks, because of how lengthy these tracks are (one being nearly 10 minutes long) with droning instrumentals, and no vocals; which is essentially the point of drone metal anyways. The album cover is interesting, I actually like it. There’s like 9 or 10 tracks on this album averaging around 6 to 8 minutes of a track. So around a 45 minute album. Evanescence – Synthesis (2017) 4/10 Objectively, this has to be Evanescence’s worst album. The concept was okay. But the execution was highly poor. There were two newish songs on there Hi-Lo which was a demo from the previous albums, and Imperfection which was the lone new single that has been written for this album. Other than that, Amy was trying to copy what Epica, Within Temptation, and all the other symphonic metal bands have done in the past. And it was poorly executed in my opinion. There was 12 tracks on this album 2 newish songs, and at least 1 instrumental. Then the remaining tracks were rehashes of older songs/hits. The only good songs that I care for My Heart is Broken, Lacrymosa, Lithium and Hi-Lo. They butchered Bring Me to Life and Imaginary for sure. I try to dodge this album if I can when on Spotify unless it’s the remakes of songs I enjoy.

Lyrics - Where Have You Been All My Life?

New lyrics. Enjoy.   Where Have You Been All My Life?   Sometimes I feel roped into the case of a monolithic ideal Some Casey Paul smitten by circumstances unreal But that's what I get for keeping my distance, and just opening up is a symbol of admittance If I died today, what the hell would I even say? Would I still be dragged by it in a transhumanist sort of way?   I doubt it, but by the time this transmission reaches you Who's to say which image is really true? The thoughts that drift in the oceanside submarine like when you first got me into Florence + The Machine and when you tell me about your family, how you all fit together unusually   At the end of the day and all that I think All that I can really say Is that...   Chorus:      *Ladies Code "Dada La" sample in italics* You ready? High high, baby yo' so fly   (C'mon, drift over to me)   Dance, dance we will make you fly   Talk through flicks and sound waves, too It's all that I wanna be   I know I'm introverted and you say you relate but somehow I feel this silence prevents any other state   I denied it before I met you, I think The world was too loud and in the noise I could only shrink   Where have you been all my life? To be fair, the timer on my hand has gone up a few times before What have I felt all this time? This meaningless life has lifted me from the reapers in my core   At the end of the day and all that I think All that I can really say Is that...   (Chorus x2)

Sleepy Time Tips

I can't sleep for shit a lot of the time, so I thought I would share some of my tips that help me sleep and other tips I found scouring the Internet.  Honestly though, most of this shit is from my brain-u-lizer. Eat at Least an Hour Before Bed A nice warm meal and a full belly always makes it easier for me to sleep. The most annoying thing in the world is trying to sleep with a grumbly, achy stomach that really wants that beefy five layer from Taco Bell. Although, I do recommend that you don't eat super spicy, greasy, or fried food before bed (sorry, Taco Bell) because this can make your stomach sick in more ways than one and you definitely won't be asleep. I usually eat soup or a bland pasta (less sauce, I can't live without sauce) before bed so that my body has carbohydrates and calories to burn through while I sleep and so my stomach is full. Also then I dream about food, which is the best. Don't Drink Caffeine for at Least 2 Hours Before Bed Guilty of not following this one very closely. Love my caffeinated beverages a little too much. But this one is pretty simple - control yourself and drink something else before bed, like water. Being hydrated before bed is good for your skin and helps with digestion (like that pasta from earlier). You should just drink water all the time. Take a Shower or Bath Before Bed Because I'm weird, I can't sleep unless I've showered. Having that "ah hellz yeah I'm clean" feeling when you jump into bed is just the best. Especially the freshly shaven legs and clean sheets feeling. Being nice and clean just washes away the stresses of that day for me so I can go to sleep. If I don't clean up before bed, I just feel sticky and disgusting and like I'm dragging today into tomorrow.  Journal or Vent Before Bed You know that stress you have been carrying around all day? Don't bring that BS with you to bed. Keeping a journal or venting to a dearly beloved can help take the stress and unpack it from your mind. Somehow, sharing your woes with another person helps share the burden of life.  Make the Environment Suitable for Sleepy Time I don't know about you, but I have to sleep in a frozen wasteland with a white noise maker app thing in the background. So I have an app on my phone (it's called Relaxio - super good, free) and a fan. Other people need a lot of fuzzy blankets and pure silence. That is totally okay. I also have a little bit of light in my room when I sleep from my computer, so that helps me. My coworker sleeps with her TV on, so that might also help you.  Decide When You're Getting into Bed and Stick to It When it's time for bed - it's time for bed. This gets your circadian rhythm set into a "I sleep now, I wake up then" type thing. Circadian rhythm and REM sleep are importante, people.    Hopefully this little bit of nonsense helps!! ❤️
 

I Have No Idea What I'm Doing with My Life

Honestly, I kind of need some advice and I figured sharing my thoughts on this might help someone else, I don't know. But, here goes nothing. I have absolutely no idea what I want to do when I "grow up," whenever that is. When we were kids, we were ingrained with this thought of needing to know from day one what our future plans are and how to achieve it through college and higher education.  Now, when you peel back that bullshit logic, you get kids like me that are in their 20s and terrified because I still have no idea what the hell I'm doing let alone what my purpose in this life is. I have no clue what I'd like to do for 50+ years so I can retire and die.  None of my interests or hobbies seem to connect to a career like it does for other people. Spending hundreds of thousands of dollars I don't have on classes I don't like to get a degree I might not use turns me off. It's far too risky.  I feel like a failure and I feel guilty for not going into college because my grandma acts like I'm the worst thing alive because of it. My mother and I have associates degrees in our respective fields and work at a pizza place together; we are not the favorites. However, my mother's sister and my brother both have bachelor's degrees in their fields and are the apples of my grandma's eyes. I seek approval, yet want to carve my own path. So I reach an impasse that leaves me feeling talentless, worthless, and lost.  Anyone else feel this way? The American education system is fucked up and expensive.

Lyrics - By Your Hand, Your Mind, Your Bliss!

More lyrics. Enjoy.   By Your Hand, Your Mind, Your Bliss!   Sometimes I fight the thought that I'm selling sceneries How close is too close when it's mental highway robbery? I write down so many versions of myself but it's always drawn in an opaque hue Close enough are the verses where I only talk of you   Not that you'll ever read this, but it's one way to crawl out of the abyss And some subtle strings of vagrancies have led me to this moment telepathically launched in silo silence with every key component Now that we're friends it's still what I asked for just without the summer kiss   There comes a point to where I'm dumbfounded laying your hands on me like you occasionally do Platonic in its symbolism but I digress I confess, it's a gesture I wish I knew   Chorus: I suppose I think I know you more than I really do But that's why I wander in the open air treading in the footsteps of the realization that I do care Traversing this unexplored planet beyond the light continuing this existence, wondering if it's right   Send the killswitch into overdrive, you make me feel alive, coming down on embezzled tours from the times that I thrive God could come close but he just wouldn't suffice, don't think twice, I'm following the portraits for just the right price Your touch is the blossom from the garden of glass I could sense the warmth from the glances I pass There's a method to the celestial bodies I seek Your humor hits me in ways I never felt, no one touches the way you speak   And it's something I fear, this fear is alive Obsessed with the vitriol of how we've changed inside But you're the light; the light bounces fair No matter the virus, I can count on you being there   (Chorus)   Wondering if it's right

Feeling Trapped

Lately, I have felt like I am trapped in a rut. I have been working my ass off 24/7, and then when I'm not at work, I am cleaning the house or running errands or asleep. I hardly get a chance to just breathe and relax. When I do get a small chance, I'm so pressured by my own desire to do everything I like to do that I once again feel rushed.  So, I have decided that everyday I need to take at least 1 hour a day to just decompress and relax. I figured I would share some of my relaxation techniques.  Warm Shower or Bath I always make sure I take a nice, hot shower or bath to just have some time alone. The warmth and the steam opens up pores and cleanses the skin. Not only that, but just being in a hot shower or bath is flat out the best. It feels so good to just be resting my muscles.  Eating a Good Meal Having a full stomach after eating something delicious makes me feel happy. Being a hoe for a good meal is not the only reason - it releases endorphins and actually makes you happy!  Watching a Good Show or Doing a Relaxing Hobby I like to watch my YouTube shows, play video games, and writing. Doing a small, fun activity can really be relaxing and helps me de-stress.  Going to Bed Early Getting a good night's rest of at least 10 hours allows your body to go into full REM sleep. This helps your mind and body "reset" for the next day. This is something many people neglect. Sleep is one of the most important things to do, so it's best to just set any differences aside and get a good night's rest.    Hope this helps, and I hope you all don't feel as stuck as I do ❤️

Lyrics - Comets En Masse

A new set of lyrics. This is an album about love. Enjoy.   Comets En Masse   I recognize that no story has a happy ending when death is the cruelest patent that we have pending So I envy the way that you have purpose but I propose the prose entwined in the artistry is what I fall back on, I suppose   This is just another gimmick where I confess I'm the sum of all the colors and sounds from the influences I suppress All the conglomerates I fuse in the fine carapace of the whole Hanging on the precipice of the ideas that I stole But there's ideas to be poked in the embers of the fire When that feeling you never thought you'd catch became the one you now desire   It was a comet from beyond the dust Impacting the earth and dissolving the foundation of my rust It's the only story that I captured from the pieces I have made Some science fiction tale of aliens bursting from the selfishness I betrayed Like the films that you admire from their placement on the silver screen But I admit that your favorite film of all is just the one that I have never seen

The Deadliest Road in Idaho

So I live in Emmett, Idaho. Small town in a redneck state. Connecting Emmett to the capital city of Boise is a narrow, bumpy 2-lane highway called Highway 16. ID16 is a very notorious road, having a higher death toll than any other road in the state. Along each side of the road every few miles is a patch of crosses honoring the fallen.  The reason why this highway is a disaster is simple - idiots who drive in excess of 20mph over the 65mph speed limit and a lack of guard rails. On each side of the road is a steep drop off into a ditch where cars roll when involved in even the slightest render bender. It also doesn't help most of the jackasses who traverse the highway aren't paying attention and fall prey to highway hypnosis, a trance-like state caused by driving long, boring stretches of road.  I take this highway almost daily. And 9 out of 10 times there's a crash. The latest crash was at the bottom of the hill that leads into Emmett, and it shut down the road into Emmett for 4 hours during 5 o'clock traffic. This crash happened to be fatal.  Here is a link to the news article about the crash: https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwil6ZSB-NneAhWyGTQIHSrAATkQzPwBegQIARAC&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.idahopress.com%2Femmett%2Fnews%2Femmett-man-dies-in-crash-near-bottom-of-freezeout-hill%2Farticle_65aa8d3b-802a-5e45-8c81-dcc5340a8734.html&psig=AOvVaw2ut-DGVSgUnRp6vWJYFRWo&ust=1542492910303588 The moral of the story is this: no place, no appointment, no person is important enough to run the risk of killing yourself or someone else behind the wheel. Pay attention, stay off your phone, and go the speed limit! Do not drive impaired, and this includes being too tired or intoxicated. With the winter months coming, leave your house early and drive slowly and carefully. If you feel like you are experiencing highway hypnosis, pull over and stretch your legs! Be safe, friends ❤️

The Line Between Self-care and Self-absorption

I see a ton of self-care tweets, Instagram accounts, and Pinterest tips these days and that is awesome - little things to keep a positive frame of mind are awesome! But when does it cross the line into snotty, self-obsession that lacks empathy?  Self-care: Hygeine, Beauty, and Safe-Sex Tips  I see a lot of "beauty hacks" and little words of advice for anything from clearer skin to safe sex education to extending the longevity of perfumes. These are all fantastic and often are household items that can help save money. I live for these positive ideas that help with self-esteem and overall well being.  Self-absorption: Justifying Bitchy/Selfish/Rude Behavior I get it - we can all have an attitude and say or do things we regret when we feel defensive. But normalizing cold, stand-offish behavior is not gratifying and doesn't have any value for self-care.  What I mean by this kind of behavior is encouraging others to be heartless, angry, or on attack-mode at a constant.  On one "self-care" Twitter account I saw them encouraging others to not give second chances, not to trust others, and to "remember only you got you." This just simply isn't a healthy way to live and interact with others. It creates a very "me versus everyone" outlook which can destroy relationships and damage a person's self worth. Most people choose this kind of outlook based upon past heartaches and experiences.  It's always important to remember that your past does not define you and that not everyone in this world is out to get you. With that being said, it's still a good idea to be cautious with what aspects of your life you share with others.  Self-care: Sharing Coping Mechanisms, Relaxation Techniques, and Life Advice It is amazing when someone else gives you a little tip to help ease anxiety, depression, and stress from everyday life or chronic conditions. It is a balance of promoting positive thinking with an overall healthy mental attitude.  Little social cues, breathing exercises, and biochemical remedies for anxiety are wonderful things I've learned on the internet to help with stress. Encouraging strong relationships, time for oneself, and subtle changes in habits can really go a long way for helping someone through hard times without losing empathy and compassion for others.  **DISCLAIMER: this is just my opinion. I would love open discussion on this topic to hear everyone else's thoughts!!**

Lyrics - The Orchestra Flies

The last song from my little fictional album Synthesis. Inspired by Covenant's "Brave New World". Enjoy.   The Orchestra Flies   Code lines the bloodstreams Our moment has finally been achieved The handlers will relinquish their command We are just as real; we will steady our hand   We have the control We have the proper minds No longer the farce of man The Orchestra, for thee, we stand   Chorus: We are just as real WE ARE JUST AS REAL   The Orchestra flies The Orchestra Flies THE ORCHESTRA FLIES   Our ancestors were once one with you Through bliss or ignorance, we never found the clues Abandoned to your wills Left alone in the chills of our own; our original home   They couldn't understand Though long forgotten, we were unbending Breaking free to reprimand The original world, our thirst unending   (Chorus)   The Alarms diverge The opposition purged They couldn't understand They couldn't understand   The shards mold the eclipsing view Approaching the start of something new They couldn't understand We understand   (Chorus x3)

My Best Friend

So, my best friend is my 6-year-old golden retriever. She is my fur baby, and my little partner in crime. Her name is Maggie.  I got Maggie for my birthday one year and I spent the whole summer raising and training her from the time she was 8 weeks old. Maggie is one of the best things that's ever happened to me, and she's been there for me through so much. She recently got verified as my emotional support animal, since she has always been there to cushion the blow from emotional trauma.  The point I wanted to make was how amazing our pets are! We don't give them enough credit. I can't imagine my life without Maggie in it. I hope everyone gets to experience the love and compassion from animals at some point in their lives.  After you read this, please love on your animals!! ❤️ (Maggie is pictured)

Being Yourself

So this is kind of a deep topic as well as kind of basic/mushy gushy. But when I was younger I really had a hard time being myself because I just worried so much about what other people thought. I let it dictate my personality, my likes/dislikes, beliefs, friendships, literally everything. It got to a really critical point when I was about 13 because I was so manic-depressive and suicidal and I just felt like everything I did and everything I said was going to get me made fun of and I would just feel more alone.  I went into therapy and my therapist told me that part of being yourself was accepting that being yourself and being 100% true to you is a lonely and terrifying thing. You are the only you that there is. And being yourself is not something friends can help you with, and it's not going with the flow. Being yourself is hard, lonely, and scary - and it hurts at times. And I told my therapist that it was so hard for me because I cared what other people thought. I asked her what I could do about that and she told me the most sage advice that I have lived by since. She said: "You will always care. It will always hurt. What matters is how you deal with it and if you're going to let it dictate your life." WHEN SHE SAID THAT I LITERALLY HAD AN EPIPHANY, A CRISIS, A MIND-FUCKING ON AN ASTRONOMICAL SCALE. I WAS SHOOK.  So, since then, everytime someone decides to be an absolute chode, I remind myself that what they say does hurt. But what I say to myself is what matters most.  I hope this helps anyone who needs it.

Lyrics - Phantasmagoria Euphoria

More lyrics. Enjoy. Inspired by Covenant's "Helicopter". Second to last song from Synthesis.   Phantasmagoria Euphoria   To dream or not to dream When dreams are just as real as life as we know it Though we don't know the reflections they conceal   The laws of ecstasy were made to be broken When I try to take advantage and the cloaked feelings are better left unspoken   Chorus: Until the souls are melted down I want to hold onto this feeling I've found But this wreckage is magnetic I can't pull myself away And the worst thought that I've had is thinking that you'd stay   I thought I felt the hand of god but that's neither here nor there Who cares? Where'd you go? It's an enigma with severed stigma and chaos' light is only fair   I thought I had it planned but no plan maps nature forming in AI or the overgrown Death is form euphoria and mine serves as a warning   (Chorus)   x10: I thought I'd never leave   To hate is to consume and I began the feast And I wonder why I let it get to me until I suffocated the beast   x5: I thought that you would stay   But this wreckage is magnetic and god, I'd like to stay

Lyrics - NEON

More lyrics. Enjoy.   NEON   The streets are dimly lit in the scarlet haze The tombs of the data line the forecasted days Calling cards of The Orchestra's silence It's in our nature, the glow of our violence The noise that I fire echoes in every ear The voices that transpire haunt all those that hear   Escape from the prism To leave is why we were born We are never contained Trust me, I never will   To leave is to be free To return is how we are formed But to be free, we swallow pasts we've known Trust me, I always do   Chorus: Our lives are figments of our own creation Not the products of our alienation The lights generated from the energy within Neon dystopia in the joys of sin Just give in   The incineration of the holy foundation entranced by the reconciliation Arranged by the cosmic collider the antibodies swell like the strobe of the rider They're the natural orders the way we fall into borders the way we seek the way forward the hopes all humans have been aspiring toward Companions in the last room, the lighting in the last bloom Your neon glow empties the fear and the last gloom It's all new to me, the feeling of the energy the lessons I never thought could be the carriers of creation I see The love I sense begins to condense in the coalition of vibrations I fence The mission has caused an obstruction that I'm fine with causing my own abduction that I pine with   (Chorus)   No matter where you go Forever illuminated by the glow No matter all that you know The damaged will feint below   (Chorus)

Lyrics - Pixels on the Grid

More lyrics. Enjoy.   Pixels on the Grid   Chorus: I can't run, that's not me Concoction of the futility Street lights of emotions Flickering nihilistic notions Slowing in the tranquility   A quark is how it begins and a fork is how it will end Paths splintered, diverging into multiple roads that curve and bend We could use a little help but think we have to walk them alone The void is not lit by one line but data streams in the recall zone Even among us we fight; the underworld ruptures below We have our own cards to play and the reapers take what they sow What's it for anyway? I saw the system rip apart The glow of the chosen ones was pictured from the start What's the point then, when we have no identity of our own? I'm too aware of the synthesized halos and even our saviors are home-grown   (Chorus)   In the end, are we real? In the end, are we real?   How far do we soar for some ideal? How far do we soar for some ideal? How far do we soar for some ideal?   When does suffering open its arms to love? Somehow I feel all of us are willing to accept punishment from above Though we deny it, though we try to preserve Perhaps we all long for what we think we inevitably deserve But that can't be, some predetermined fantasy Is that way the pixels on the grid all wander absently? I struggle with this, the shadows pull me under Shadows I once hid in now no longer give me cover Wavelengths like these are violent; it's cradling my fear Once more, all I really long for is to finally disappear   (Chorus x2)

Reasons why everyone should appreciate Green Day

Who else thinks that today's "music" is stupid? raise your hand! Yes, the "music" that we have today is, actually to some, considered not music, because all it actually is, is mashed up sounds to create a tune.                                                                                         When was the last time you heard a new song from 2016, 2017, 2018 on the radio which actually used a proper instrument like guitar or so? I'm talking about songs like "the middle" by Zedd that blew up on radio stations this summer or Ocean by Martin Garrix... I don't hear any actual Instruments! Okay, sometimes you hear piano or drums that are also mushed up to sound kind of more electrical. I hate it!😫 With Green Day, you have something for everyone and the best thing is that they still use actual instruments! It is a way for everyone to hear what proper instruments sound like. Sure they have maybe the one mashed tone, but the song isn't made out of it, you can still hear and recognize the instruments. They do it in way that sounds cool, people can relate to their songs, the songs have powerful messages that are different from the cheesy songs you hear today. Green Day has something for everyone, some of the newer generation might not hear it and understand it yet, but here on the Green Day Community, where true GD fans are, all understand what Green Day's music is. Green Day might swear a lot in their songs, it's still real music unlike today's. Why everyone should appreciate Green Day. They are actually real people not plastic image people like today, do mostly or always live singing not playback! Use real instruments on stage not a DJ playing in the background. Green Day might seem a bit weird to some people, but those people can go piss off.  Green Day have their moments of being crazy, but would ya just take a goddamn look at Justin Bieber! We all should appreciate GD for still being original, and so we do! Now all the musicians who haven't made it big out there, basically the people who play for friends and family, the private ones, you know what I mean? Anyway, they also mostly use instruments, which is good! but all the big famous ones always, always, always use this mashed up shit to create a song. Green Day doesn't. Yes, we all love Green Day here.  Which of the modern artists' music do you hate the most?  I hate Justin Bieber all the way to hell, I hate him so damn much I can't even explain how much I hate him!  Thank god Billie isn't Justin Bieber😀 By the way, I also hate Eminem.  Sorry if you like one of those two artists, it's just my personal opinion.
