If you take a jar, and whisper what you want to hate into it, then close the jar, coat it in crunchy peanut butter, and shove it up your ass. I'm pretty sure you could hate everything after that.

Mix classic with modern stuff.


yeah see, im worried, cuz im playing for teens about the age of 16, and most of them doesnt know to the who are. they r probably expecting paramore and crap like that.
maybe i should play some ACDC? but my vocalist wont go for it...

dude, play the classics

i have a feeling that a lot of modern rock fans are just faking it, like you almost did.

Play the music you want to. If you don't, you're playing music for all the wrong reasons.

And for that you would get this:

I suggest playing original material.
And of course they know who The Who are.
I suggest playing some Tool too. Almost everybody I know is a Tool fan to some extent.

Who cares? Do what you want, let them be introduced to it all by you. If they like it, then you'll be the only person around doing that type of music, then you'll get famous around town, then around everywhere else, then you'll be the next rock gods!

I get 10% for suggesting it.

Just play whatever honestly. You'll always have people come to gigs and all that just cuz its fun to listen to music played by bands live. Plus a huge majority of people listen to rock so it really doesn't matter. If you write songs and make a cd then some people may not want it if they dont like classic but go for what ever you feel is good. Oh and good luck with the band!!!

Ok first off STOP IT.

STOP IT NOW!

You are doing the worst thing ever possible ever. It is so bad my grammar is ****ed up because it is blowing my mind away.

DO NOT PLAY FOR THE CROWD, PLAY IN FRONT OF THEM.

If you like the music you like, then god damnit play it. I know people who are 15 and like miley cyrus, so if you expect that you have to sing about bubblegum and lollipops for an hour because they are in the same age group as you then you don't deserve to sell a single cd.

Pleas please please play the who. If they havn't heard it yet, that is more reason for you to turn it up even louder.

Play classic rock, it's what you want to play, right? I find most of the 16 year olds around here who are into music like classic rock over modern rock anyways.
