This evening while waiting at the bus stop I observed a group of kids who appeared to be 14 or 15...thrasher 'burn-out' type kids, troublemakers. like some of the people i knew growing up. they were singing 'Paradise City' by Guns N Roses and 'I Wanna Rock' by Twisted Sister. and i'm thinking, jeez these kids might not have been born the year these songs came out. i find it funny, because when i was their age i used to listen to stuff from before my time too, like Zeppelin, Doors, Hendrix and stuff like that. music from a generation before always sticks and carries over, but without the associations that the previous generation can attribute to it. music is truly timeless in that sense.
