Rock On: Song and Band Recommendations

Whether you’re jogging at the park or simply vacuuming the carpet—well, whatever it may be that you’re doing, for that matter—odds are you’re probably one of those people who’ve gotten used to listening to music while accomplishing daily tasks. If so, that’s good! And if you’re into bands, even better! In this blog post, we’ll be giving out song and band recommendations of some classics that you may (or may not know)! Make sure to give them a listen and let us know what you think about them. Without further ado, let’s go!

1.    Still Waiting – Sum 41

“So am I still waiting for this world to stop hating?” This song was written by the band’s frontman Deryck Whibley after the devastating events of 9/11 transpired. In an interview with MTV, he said, “It’s not directly about 9/11 or the war on terrorism. It’s about the war on everything. It’s about the world as we know it. It’s no secret that the world doesn’t get along, and there’s all this hatred. It’s everything to do with how this world functions.” This song will turn 18 on November 18, and it’s a huge shame that it’s still something that most—if not the whole world—can relate to in one way or another.

2.    Ignorance – Paramore

“Ignorance is your new best friend, and you’d best be on your way out” if you don’t think that females can’t rock, too! Although the scene industry is dominated by men, this top hit by Paramore goes to show how women can also deliver as powerful vocals. You might know them from their singles like “The Only Exception” which has gone gold here in Australia, or perhaps you might have even seen their performance at Soundwave Festival a decade ago.

3.    Bulls in The Bronx – Pierce the Veil

Post-hardcore? Alternative rock? Pop-punk? Well, this bands got you covered! What sets it apart, though, is the Spanish flair that they add in most of their songs—something that is evident in this particular track. Bulls in The Bronx, as lead vocalist, Vic Fuentes, said in an interview, is a tribute to a fan from Victoria who committed suicide at 19. In line with this, we’d like to take the time to acknowledge that your mental health is just as important as your physical health, and should you be struggling with mental illnesses, or thoughts of self-harm or suicide, please get in touch with dedicated hotlines.
