Because, as a 15-year-old, your musical tastes are much more mature than a 14-year old's?
Top 5 Rush Songs:
1. La Villa Strangiato
2. Natural Science
3. The Main Monkey Business
4. Vital Signs
5. Subdivisions



Complete Atomic Basie by Count Basie.

Try learning Across the Universe by the Beatles or Knocking on Heavens Door. Little girls might be impressed my Nirvana or Plain White Tees.
#4
Slide by the Goo Goo Dolls is a nice easy song to learn. There are a few threads like this if you want to search for them as well.

Schizophrenia rap?

*beatboxes*

I have schizophrenia, I talk to myself,
People startin' to doubt my mental health,
Maybe someday I'll get the help I need,
But till then don't be blamin' mah weed.

*scratches*

absafreakin lutely, they listen to crap music....like rap

they also have never heard of black sabbith, ozzy ozbourne, led zeplin, and so forth, in the classic rock/metal genre. just beacuse im young doesnt mean im immature. maturity does not come with age, it comes with your ability to be responsible and act like a civilized adult.

please just answer my question
