Hey guys..Wotcha? cheesy Need to ask y'all somfin..Have u ever been criticised or looked at in a funny way just cos u listen to songs that are different and in no way mainstream? Heck, i've even had someone tell me that I look too classy to be listening to dat "junk rock music".. angry Imagine the rage..Does one have to be scatter brained to enjoy rock now? What's wif the prejudice against rock music in nigeria? Some say "it's demonic" others say "it's too white" ..it's so...so..ANNOYING!
How do you deal with your critics? (A.K.A Oversabi ppl. who wouldn't know good music even if it hits them in the face)
Nigeria is a backward society. Just ignore them and do your thing. Don't let people weigh you down.

The Metro, Nickelback, Coldplay, Brian Adams, the Reds, Bonjovi, Linking Parker, Michael learns to Rock, and more. Rock music gets you active even when you don't want.

yeah i get that alot. But i dont give a damn. Well do i try my best to stick to my headset, and use the sound system when nobody's around. Its a pity though, cos they dont know what they're missing.

I've listened close to 85% of the bands listed by you guys. Its good to know that there are guys who listen to rock in nigeria. I've met some guys that will say they do listen to rock, but if i check their playlist, i'll find out that rock is been mix with our naija jams. Well, i dont consider them rock fans. Being a rock fan means you dont just like singled out songs, but the band itself.

I consider any song not hard enough for me as Soft Rock.So my classification of Soft Rock will be Alternative Rock, Indie Rock and Post Grunge Rock.

These are some artistes you should check out for good 'Soft Rock'. Alter Bridge, Radiohead, Staind, Muse, Keane, Seether, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Smashing Pumpkins etc


Some notable songs to get you into them are:

Kings of Leon: On Call, Knocked Up, Manhattan, Cold Desert, Use Somebody, Radioactive, Pyro, I Want You
etc

Radiohead: Fake Plastic Trees, Creep, Paranoid Android, Karma Police, How to Disappear Completely, All I Need etc

Three Doors Down: Landing in London, Here by Me, When You are Young, Away From the Sun, Be Like that, Be Somebody, Right Where I belong etc

Coldplay: The Scientist, Fix You, Clocks, Paradise etc

Anberlin: *fin, The Unwinding Cable Car, A Day Late,

Muse: Map of the Problematique, Starlight, Butterflies & Hurricanes, Undisclosed Desires,Resistance, Thoughts of a Dying Atheist, Feeling Good. etc

I like Lady Antabellum, Chris Daughtry, Pink, Creed, Florida Georgia, ED sheeran (dude kills me on every tack) Lana Del Ray, Westlife (old but I love em) same with Evanescence, Jessie J (Flashlight...nice song). how can I forget Script? (the man who can't be moved)...Bo Bice (U make me better) 30 seconds from Mars, Coldplay, One Republic, John Mayer....the list is endless.
