Classroom wars: Hiphop vs. Metal

March 16, 2007 at 12:53 am 13 comments

In my old high school, there were only two kinds of boys. Those who worshipped Puff Daddy, the Wu Tang Clan, Tupac Shakur, and Pras Michel and those who headbanged with Cheese, Greyhoundz, and Linkin’ Park. So guys, I hope you willingly share where you sided in the bi-polar world of music and men’s fashion in the late nineties.

“Metal ka ba? or Hiphop?”

    HIPHOP! I had a phase where all of the items in my closet were baggy jeans from and plaid browsers. My shirts were long and oversized. No offense to those who still ‘carry’ the Hip hop tradition.

    Linkin Park… didn’t their debut album come out in 2000? I don’t consider Linkin Park a 90s band really… not even a late 90s band. There were a lot of cool early 90s bands to feature though. Ugly Kid Joe, Skid Row, Metallica (Black Album era)? Quite a few good 90s metal bands to choose from. And while hair metal was fading, out came Grunge from the Seattle underground scene.

    Puff Daddy is pretty much towards the end of the 90s around ’96-’97. How about featuring something early 90s when it all really started?

    I think everyone likes rap at some point, then people eventually start listening to good music like rock once they realize rap sucks

    That’s true Kate.

    Rap fans aren’t allowed to talk until they can come up with an act with the diversity and virtuosity of Dream Theatre.

    And then of course the perfectionism of Iron Maiden, the fact that everyone at least kind of likes AC/DC, the fact that Van Canto have proven that drums are the only necessary instrument other than the human voice (no kidding, they sing guitar solos). And that’s only rock orientated metal.

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
