This Is How I Know I Am Officially OLD...

I remember as a youth traveling to various church activities and asking the church youth leader/chaperone to play music like this in the car and watching their uneasy reactions or hear the "Is this really music" comments. I just figured it was because they were so old they couldn't appreciate the evolution of music.




Oddly enough I now find myself in the role of church youth leader who drives these young teenagers around to our various activities. Up until now we have actually had similar tastes in music but recently I was found pumping this through my speakers and found myself pondering introspectively: "Is this really music?"



I must be getting old because THAT my friends is most definitely NOT music...

i've never really been into either of these types of music, I do like some screamo, but not hard metal types like these. If you want to check out a good combo and one of my new favorite bands, check out Scary Kids Scaring Kids.

Know what, I go through the exact opposite. I work in the valley of the old and tragic, and you should see their eyebrows fly off their face when they ask what's on my ipod and I say "Steppenwolf" and "Beatles" and "Zepplin." I make them feel better when I throw in "Breaking Benjamin" and "Finger 11" though. It's like they think being young means you can't have taste. I hope you're introducing these kids you serve with to classical music...Doors and Stones and Steve Miller and such. It's our duty.
