From Birdie’s Flock | Amanda Banana Rocks Out

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.


Birdie & Banana, Twenty One Pilots Selfie!

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.


Thank’s mom!

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

  1. You have an awesome taste in music, Amanda! I absolutely adore Queen (Bohemian Rhapsody is literally the most difficult karaoke song in existence!) and Def Leppard’s ‘Hysteria’ album is one of my all time favorite albums ❤
    Rock on! 😀
