My gf/wife has asked me "how many times are you going to listen to this again tonight?" I just looked at her and said "what?"

On a lark I bought a Dead Kennedy's album because I liked the look of the cover (I had no idea they were a punk band).  The first song was a cover of "Take this Job and Shove It".  I heard it, shat my pants and my life was changed from there on in.

I listened to hair metal before that, but after my introduction to punk rock I fragmented into liking almost everything.  That said, proper heavy-fucking-metal has always been my bedrock and I've never not listened to it.

I can still cry at the right commercial, so in this case, music that helps me lift the most weight I've ever lifted before has had no impact on making me an angry dude.  I have other baggage that sounds like it rhymes with yours and I'd bet it comes from elsewhere...

America Sucks

Believe it or not, you don’t make millions in the music industry with every hit record, especially if your total share is only about 12% of the author’s part. What? Yeah. The original lyricist gets 50% (actually 25% because the publisher takes half), the sub-lyricist (me writing in a different language from the original) gets half of that 12.25%. It’s OK pay for a few hours of work, but it won’t put you in a mansion and a Rolls. Nor will writing for heavy metal bands and pop groups that want to break into the British and American markets. One of my good friends in the German music industry told me lately that even Nena, with her American hit 99 Red Balloons got shafted by the America Sucks music industry. Let’s put it this way, she got less for her hit song over there than I got paid to write lyrics anonymously for a popular German metal band signed with SONY. Over here, she made tons of money with that song in German and the album and other hits and other albums, which eventually got her a seat as a judge in one of the casting shows that are now so popular. But the America Sucks music industry took what it wanted and said what it always says when your lawyers tell them you want your money: “Sue me!”
