Thanks for the follow! :eeyup:

Thanks for follow me. You are the best. And It's an honor as well to being followed by the creator of Spams. LOL

:rainbowlaugh:I never meant that I didn’t like oldies, just that everyone else my age (teenagers) didn’t share my enthusiasm for it.

There was some genius-level songwriting back on those days. I actually had the idea a while back of doing an EqG-story based on the song ‘Last Kiss’, but I never did it, because:
A. No time
B. It was kind of a bummer
C. I didn’t think I had the writing chops to fully portray something that heart-wrenching


Anyway, yeah, ‘Du Hast.’ That’s the one I heard first as well. Someone at my high school had that CD, which they brought into communication class one day, and for like a week after, everyone in school was talking about that “weird German song.” People either loved it or hated it.
From a purely technical standpoint, I don’t find Rammstein very interesting when compared to something like Megadeth, but their use of synth/keyboards, strings, choir, etc. gives their sound a layered richness that you don’t often hear in metal, which I like.

Hey, don't knock the oldies too much, man; they're where I got my start, too. My dad went on this '60s rock kick when I was a kid, and I got to listen to all kinds of stuff from that era, but not always the best stuff.

Ah, and Rammstein. That was a pretty cool song! Though to me they'll always be the band that played Du Hast. :derpytongue2: I say that with no malice though; I also first heard them (and Du Hast) before I got into metal, and they made me sit up and listen for a moment... but only for a moment. Too much else was going on in my life at the time. In truth, it took several songs like that before I really started coming around.

That vid you posted comes up as unavailable, but I searched it on YouTube and found another one that worked. Not bad at all!

Oddly, I was the same with metal. It IS one of those genres that can be off-putting to someone who is not accustomed to it, which Is why I avoided it for so long. When I was younger, (late public school and early high school) I listened to either movie scores, or—because my dad always had them on— oldies. I didn’t get laid much in those days, just sayin. But anyway, the band that actually got me into metal, as weird as this is, was Rammstein, with their 1997 album ‘Sehnsucht,’ which at the time was fresh off the press. I don’t really consider them to be quite the same genre as Megadeth or Metallica, but they did pave the way for me to discover those bands in the coming years.

It’s funny, actually, that this came up. I’ve been on a small Rammstein kick lately; just last weekend I watched their live show in Paris from a couple years ago. I must say, it was pretty crazy. I was impressed!
