So, I know everyone on this forum has to have a song or a band that completely inspires them. I want to know what band really brings out the best in you, or even just a quote a band has written that you could basically base your life on and be completely satisfied. Maybe there's a band that has actually changed your entire outlook on life? Tell me why and how!
For me, Defiance, Ohio, a little folk punk band, has really been a big impact on my morals. I have a quote from one of their songs titled I Don't Want Solidarity If It Means Holding Hands With You tattooed onto my chest and the quote reads, "Action comes easy, it's the moments just before that are hard when I've got to get my voice and my fist on the same page as my heart." The band sings about living simply, freely, and doing everything you can with everything you've got. It's basically shaped the past 5 years of my life.
(And for everyone, the quote of the discussion title is from the band Wingnut Dishwashers Union and the song is called Fuck Shit Up)
dookie was a awesome album I was about 16 0r 17 when it came out they were the reason I got my eyebrow pierced lol but but then greenday went like pop or something lol
Hahaha, are you sure Tribal Connections by Gogol Bordello isn't the one that gets you thinking? haha I fucking love them, and they are also another band that has shaped my morals.
Have you ever seen them live?!
Call me generic, but The Decline by NoFX really makes me think. It's just the way it describes the world to me.
