MUSIC TO SCARE YOUR CHILDREN WITH.


This is for all punk rock parents whose children have become corrupted by peer pressure and crap music channels into liking bland pop shite. I suppose they’re only rebelling, so let’s not hold it against them. No matter how hard you try as a parent they’re gonna want to be making their own choices around things like; the clothes they wanna wear and the music they listen to, and do we really want a generation of mini-mees? As long as my daughter grows up with decent morals and values of right, wrong and responsibility I really don’t care what music she listens to (I draw the line at MIKA though) or what clothes she wants to wear, well I’m not sure about the last one actually, cos there’s some right inappropriate fashions out there aimed at young children, mind you that’s only to be expected when in some quarters people believe that childhood finishes at 11 years old!!?? Right then, gone off on a slight tangent…back to the thread of it all. A couple of weeks ago the NME gave away a free CD of bands doing cover versions. I was playing it the other day and my daughter came in and stood open mouthed and in shock and said “Dad what’s this crap” referring to the Manic Street Preachers version of Rihanna's Umbrella, when I played her The Wombats take on Leona Lewis’s Bleeding Love her face was a picture of shock. As for the rest of the tracks I tend to agree with her initial assessment, which in the case of the Manics has now changed for her to “it’s not too bad” Any way for your delight and your children’s disgust here’s MANIC STREET PREACHERS and THE WOMBATS ripping the shit out of bland pop pap.
