Sometimes you feel like you want to kick a hole in the wall, but it’s better to listen to a song that makes you feel like you can.
For my last day, I decided to pick a song of pretty great importance to me. I first heard this song on 120 Minutes when I was up way too late in elementary school. I was instantly in love. It was listed as being on the soundtrack for The Crow, and I went out and got it immediately. Eventually I found out it was also on their album Betty, which I got as soon as I could.
That album changed my perception of what rock could be. It was heavy, dense, and unrelenting. I was only 12 or 13, but I'd never heard anything like it before. After that album, my tastes started forming to what they are today. I owe a lot of who I am to a song I just happened upon on TV. Helmet is a band who had a huge influence on the rock scene. I doubt it would be a big deal to them, but they had one on me too. And it all started with this song.
And thus ends my week at the controls. I hope you enjoyed it.
