Thanks For Ruining Music For Me.

Conservative Top 50 - New York Times

     I think the poor folks at the Conservative rag, The National Review, were seriously scambling to come up with Fifty Conservative Rock songs for this list.  I mean, their only justification for putting Iron Maiden's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" on the list is because it quotes a literary classic.  And, even sillier is that they put Tammy Wynette's "Stand By Your Man," on the list because Hillary bashed it, and well...  you know...  women should just shut up, stay home and bake cookies, I guess. 

     Anyway, from what I've seen of this list, they probably should have just called it "The Fifty Conservative LINES from Rock and Roll (and Tammy Wynette)." 


  1. So... I guess the Red Hot Chili Peppers probably didn't make the list at all then, huh?  LOL!


  2. "Conservative"..."Liberal"...can't tell them apart these days as, yes, the new boss is really is the same as the old boss.

  3. The Times also has a story analyzing NRO's list...

    I like the quote from Dave Marsh...

    "What happened was, my side won the culture war, in the sense that rock and related music is the dominant musical form, not only in the U.S. but around the world.  Once you lose that battle, you lose the war, and then a different kind of battle begins: the battle over meaning."

  4. Dan I think that last comment should be you know Scraped
