Throwback Thursday

Not only is it Throwback Thursday today but International Women's Day. I thought I would kill two birds with one stone by re-posting a list I made in 2012. It definitely needs updating because my taste in music has evolved over the past six years. I created this list as response to a really shit list that VH1 put together when the cable network still aired music (like MTV). It was a fun list to create. I hope to re-do this list sometime in the coming weeks, maybe just maybe next month after the Covenant show and before the L7show.

This list only reflects my personal taste in music but then again so does this entire blog whether people like what I have to say or not (and frankly I don't give a fuck if there are people who don't like my opinions because I am not here to kiss ass).I got some minor blowback about a concert review a long time hence this comment. I refuse to suck up to musician's egos for my blog and going to tell it like it is. Not as if I get paid to write my blog.  As far music I do not like  I will write only what I do like. If I don't mention your music when I am sent a link to your soundcloud page, well then my silence should speak volumes

What I found interesting is that shortly after I originally posted this blog post, it went completely viral in the goth/industrial scene. I honestly did not think many people would see this list but clearly it got around :P. I am thrilled quite a few people saw this list and flattered that they liked this list. I am simply a music fan. My passion for music drives me to continue this blog even if my life offline sucks so much.
