these kids today with their loud music....

My "Music Lessons" post at Raising Hell has generated a slew of comments on the state of music today.

UPDATE: I re-posted it over at Blogcritics because the discussion the post generated was inappropriate for Raising Hell.

Go join the fray.


Don't forget, Elvis is the one who started all this madness, though he had his predecessors, too. Cold Fury has a post on Hank Ballard, writer of "The Twist", who just died.

So is this a bad point to say that, for me, the first thing that comes to mind when someone says "punk" is that green spiral of stuff you burn as mosquito repellant?

yes, yes, I know what you're talking about from the context, but I still think the weird word associations in my memory are funny.

Not weird at all, Chris. We used to call them "punks" as well.
