Going off topic here, but Springsteen pre Born in the USA, everyone should listen to. It's genius. Like listen to the album Nebraska, head phones on. Early Billy Joel is excellent to. Bon Jovi, pop rock for mass audience appeal, radio friendly pap, you can keep it. I can get down with some Blaze of Glory, cowboy (Wanted Dead or Alive) though, if I'm feeling the pew pew pew, swinging saloon doors, gunfight vibes.

Naw, you already crushed yourself by admitting you listen to Bon Jovi. Do you drink rosť on the weekends and take testosterone supplements too?

Have you listened to Bruce Springsteen songs or Billy Joel's?



do you mean has Malaz listened to any off the boss or joel or do you mean have I listened to songs by those two that they've released about the current events? (no would be the answer, only heard Jovis cause it popped up randomly on spotify)

They haven't released new songs about now (I don't think). They're just the other two New Jersey triumvirate members and all are way further left-wing than you'd expect for pop/rock stars.

I don't think celebrities are going to save us.

But Bon Jovis new single American Reckoning is pretty damn ace.



This is where you all crush me and say he's actually a KKK member and the song is about building a wall


Yeah, you werenít kidding. Itís really great and quite poignantly written. Thanks for the heads up.

Bon Jovi was awesome in the early 90s. Despite being more into euro dance and techno there were some releases that were seminal for my early teens, like Michael Jackson's HiStory, Nirvana and definitely Bon Jovi, which tied into the popularity of the Young Guns films.

Ah, being a Eurovillan I just lump them all together as "American"


Side tracking anyway apologies.

I liked Bon Jovi before Young Guns. It was part of my general obsession with hair bands. GNR was my favorite but I liked Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, and various others.

Back on topic, Bill Clinton sucks so much. Even though it was for all the wrong reasons, I'm glad I didn't vote for him in 1996. MAGA trolls who try to throw him in my face are going to hit a brick wall because I have never liked him.



PS: The "Eyes on the Prize" series (free with login) is a good source for looking at the wide range of leaders in the movement including Stokely Carmichael. It's not a perfect source, but does a really good job setting up how the movement collapsed into the 80s when white people decided they had given enough. The problems of poverty and police brutality would have to wait for another day.
