Amanda Banana is back, ready to share her love of music with us. I particularly found this post touching.
I hope you guys enjoy it too.
We appreciate you sharing with us, Banana!
All of these songs either came out before I was born, or when I was really young. If you don’t consider these songs rock, I don’t care! 🙂
This list is in no particular order.
1. November Rain by Guns n Roses
I was 6 years old when this song came out and I played it all the time and drove my family crazy. Love every part of this song, but the guitar riffs are what really sucks me in. Slash, you the man!
2. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
Freddy Mercury is the ultimate frontman. This song covers all aspects of music. At times it’s a ballad, sometimes it’s rock, and even has a little opera thrown in. It’s 5.54 minutes of awesomeness.
3. Enter Sandman by Metallica
What’s not to love about this song, people? The intro to this song is genius. Heavy guitar riffs, loud vocals make you want to headbang, man!
4. Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd
This song came out way before my time, but every teenager can relate to it. It’s the ultimate school rebellion song.
5. Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leppard
Drunk party… yes ma’am. I can remember singing this song as a child and having no clue what it meant. Can you believe the drummer only has 1 arm?!! He has one arm, and he’s better than most others.
6. Back in Black by AC/DC
Best intro ever!!! Raspy vocals that no one could ever replicate. A song nobody can sit still to. It was really hard to pick one song above the rest, but this is one I’ve definitely listened to on repeat.
7. Anything by My Chemical Romance
Anything by them. Seriously. Look it up. Seriously guys! Look. It. Up.
8. Rag Doll by Aerosmith
What can I say, I just like the beat and it’s a feel good song. Plus, I believe Steven Tyler will never die!
9. I Love Rock & Roll by Joan Jett
Everybody knows this song. It has a hard driving guitar and strong female vocals.
10. One Way or Another by Blondie
The ultimate stalker song, but catchy as hell. Debbie Harry is one hell of a rock chick. She had the looks and the moves
My mom always had music of all kinds playing in the house, but rock was always one of her favorites, and that love transferred to me.
