You just keep doing that Grinchy, cause we need people that are not conform the rules. And people in their thirties that are into new music should be seriously respected. Instead of listening to the same boring 80's crap, listen to something worth while that's new and refreshing.
Lol nothin wrong with 80's...but music to me is like a diet. You can't just eat one food group everyday for your entire life and expect to be healthy. But see I'm sure you're not the only person your age listening to what you listen to? SO what is a group of non-conformists? Conformists of some sort. Conforming to non-conformity. And that word starts looking weird after you keep typing it. I think most people on this board can't be pegged into one single idea. That's why I love it.

I was there for 6 years of the 80s and I don't really remember a lot...whenever everyone does those lookback at the 80s things I can't reminisce with anyone because I don't remember anything. Must not have left a good impression.
You've got a sweet tooth and I'm your chocolate bar.
That's because those "lookback at the 80s" specials always look back at the crap. I never liked what was going on commercialy in the 80s. That's why I went to rap music (most rap was underground back then) and post-punk or alternative or whatever the hell it was called back then.
Lol sorry bombz I forget people are younger than me in here. I liked the 80's. Good cartoons, retarded style..right up my alley. I liked the 90's too. The 2000's...not so sure about . 2000's are like the techy era - gadgets, gizmos and weapons, oh my.

i read this article several months ago in a local community paper, and just thought i'd share it with you. i am very similar to this guy in behaviour and attitude.
At this moment, I have dark red hi-lites in my hair, sometimes they’re blonde. I go see live bands every chance I get, loud bands too, in the mosh pit. I cannot wait to see System Of A Down again, that is going to be great. I decided I wanted to learn guitar, so I bought one. I like old cars, so I bought one. Sometimes I don’t get home until the sun has been up for an hour. Oh yeah, I am a 35-year-old man. I have been told by more than one person, including my own mother, that I need to “grow up”. This infuriates me. What does that mean? What exactly do “grown ups” do? Do they host dinner parties for other grown ups? I do that. Do they dress nicely and go to the theatre? I do that too. Do they own their own homes, have children and pay their bills? Hey! I do that! I also run my own small business, pay taxes, and am appalled by what the Liberals are doing to the country, but do nothing about it. Alas, I have red in my hair and listen to loud music so I must be immature. I asked some “grown ups” what they do with their time to see if maybe I was missing something. The most common answer I received was “watch TV.” A few others drink at least a 12 pack of beer every night, in their basement, garage, or pub. Still others sit in front of a computer and pretend to be someone they’re not. That sounds great, I can’t wait to grow up. As far as I can tell, “grown up” is a metaphor for “avoiding the real world and passing the time until you die.” The only thing I could find that “grown ups” do that I do not is deny themselves the activities that once made them happy when they were younger because of what others may think. Ironic, isn’t it? You tell your kids that it doesn’t matter what others think, and yet you do it yourself. I think the world would be a much better place to live if you weren’t all so grown up. Come regress with me. You don’t have to dye your hair, and continue to pay your bills and taxes, but next time you are in your car roll down the windows and crank up Judas Priest. In the elevator full of people, goose your partner and then blame it on some innocent bystander. Put down the remote and have some fun already! You don’t’ have to give up to be grown up.
I wear what I want. Some days ago, a friend pushed me in a Hennes&Mauritz and I was shocked cause they selled shirts by the clash oder bags with the ramones on it. And then there are these people who are running around to be fashionable. This is really awful!! If I go to a concert, I wear comfortably clothes, I don't like people with their spikes in jackets or bracelets there. This hurts..
Last week I changed my hair color a bit. Now it turns from blond in pink to lavender and then in blue. Now many friends of mine want this hair color too. Curious...
It's so true that people wear shirts by the Ramones or Iron Maiden or other classic hard rock or metal bands just because they're cool or something (which means it's probably already uncool again.) And you just KNOW they don't listen to the band at all.
Sometimes when I drive to work I see a really really cute red-head at a bus stop near my house, and she sometimes wears a little AC/DC shirt. I want to stop the car and ask her to name three AC/DC songs (then ask her to marry me, regardless of whether or not she can : I bet she wouldn't be able to.
