There are things that can't be argued about. British bands were light-years ahead when rock music was born.
...except for "The Dude's Credence Tapes", which of course weren't so bad at all, after all.
And no, William only played a minor role in shaping my personal musical taste. RP (William) rather helped me with staying in touch with contemporary American music as it evolved over time, and especially when it was being ingenious.
He (William)'s more of a minutely chipping goldsmith who's been keeping me "in tune" with the contemporary sounds of a nation that arose only through being more nasty than others while claiming to be the morally integer (and not the villain), most often under a false pretense, yet with one's personal liberty deeply engrained into one's life. Thinking back to the end of the cold war and later, very shortly before the iron curtain fell, the "Decapitation of the Soviet System" was the officially declared target, and fantasy hasn't brought any other targets to point your fingers to until today. Not much has changed.

Asking the potential anyone to look at yourself:

Akira Kurosawa's dreams coming true through the "good ones", the democratic ones. Who'd a thunk this kind of sh.. would ever materialize!

Bruce Willis on drums, Alice Cooper on bass...
...not exactly, although the 'Bratwurst als Currywurst'  was Spitze (or so I'm told).
Ask me, the singer truly earned those red and pointy, shiny shoes, and all band members the purple cross next to their silver star. And all ... überhaupt.

If all else fails, really go back to now!

And realize, it ain't Putin, not Biden, nor Trump (nor the dentist) who keep fucking our lives up. - In the end it is all of us without any need for the shake of a lion's tale.

It was awesome how many college kids communicated with their parents by requesting this song. They'd call up and say "would you play Institutionalized? My parents are in town and I want them to hear it."

I can just picture the mom and dad trying to decipher it while their daughter (always girls requesting it for this) screams "I went to YOUR institutional learning facility!"

I think it's funny to know there's someone else in this town who knows that song. The station actually has someone feeding songs into the robot and some live DJs sometimes (I probably listen about 5 minutes a week). So 30 minutes after hearing it, the station owner and the Very Young Person responsible for the songs in rotation were in the store here so I said in a serious voice, "Listen, I just heard a band called Suicidal Tendencies on your radio station, what's going on?" and the owner saw right through me and just laughed.

Hrhr, love the chocolate chart.

Since two days in a row I am back on track with RP, and you know what? I guess there is less classic rock - did Bill even hear the Swiss?;)

You should have seen me when I first stumbled upon Radio Paradise (it was in the summer 1.5 years ago) - sitting at the floor in front of the radio for more than an hour or two, fascinated by the tracks (most of the songs new to me, not much classics).

Hey, I am not just _very mildly_ complaining, I also said how much I like RP. Why do many people just see the negative stuff?
