    A Large Collection Today, many people have become attached to popular music, because it can easily stimulate their curiosity. In addition, many people buy popular music because it is popular not because it has artistic value.

    Music The 80 s were very important years in music history. Known as the decade of excess, the 80 s brought a more visual experience to music. From fireworks at concerts to MTV, the 80 s made sitting next to the radio a thing of the past. Musicians became more into their image then ever before. The 60 s were the natural, feel good music era. The 70 s were the dance crazed disco era. By the time the 80 s rolled around, people needed something new and crazy. People s hair was outrageous, and the 8...

    Industrial Music Rock and roll is dead. It's a fact. During the eighties romp of techno and fashion bands, people forgot all about it. In the late eighties and early nineties alternative music tried to save rock and roll, but it was too big of a category. If a band didn't sing country or rap, they were considered alternative. Every alternative band had their own idea of music, and it all spread apart, running farther away from rock. Finally, when alternative became more defined and broke off in...

    A Crazy Little Thing Called Punk Sex, drugs, and rock and roll was the rallying cry for a movement that changed American culture forever. Rock and roll first startled the American scene in the mid-1950, but no one then could have predicted the remarkable vitality and staying power of this new music. The early tradition of rock has gone through many transitions. Provocative and outlandish stage attire and behavior have been an important resource since the birth of rock and roll. Decades following...

    Jack Black is very funny. He steals movies where he has supporting parts like High Fidelity, and his performance with Will Ferrell at the Oscars was the highlight of a very predictable awards show. Black's persona is a fascinating paradox; I like the oxymoron that Entertainment Weekly recently created for him: the frenetic slacker. Black's characters seem to be very passionate, but that energy is reserved for activities that seem to serve little "productive" value in our current economic order. ...

    "ELVIS" Is he still the King? Just yesterday I was watching television and a new Toyota commercial came on. What struck me about the ad was not the car, but the music it had playing in the background. A brand new single by Elvis Presley called "Rubberneck in." The song gave instant satisfaction to my ears and I started rocking my head forward and back as the music played. After the thirty second ad was over I was left hungry for more. I wanted and needed the song to listen to it the whole way t...
