The other day I was in my Spanish class talking to some of my friends. I was joking around with one of the kids telling him "remember that day you wore that Fall Out Boy shirt to school and said they had more talent then Zeppelin?" (He was joking BTW.) So we were all laughing and this other kid who was sitting with us, we dont know why he talks to us really, thinks the kid was serious and starts up with "dude, f*ck you, you don't know real music. Listen to bands like As I Lay Dying, Opeth and Van Halen."

So the kid jokingly says "shut your mouth, none of you know real music and the power of Fall Out Boy." And the other kid replies with, "yeah we would know. Me and Dan (my name) are rockers." I stopped laughing and gave him a look and said "I have never once described myself in that way seeing as I DONT want to sound like a poser." And he left.


So short story shorter, have you ever used the word "rocker" to describe yourself?

by worrying about sounding like a poser you are a poser. I don't even know what Fall Out Boy is. I would have punched him in the mouth and then hit him again and said, "That one was for Lemmy".

No, I'm not an idiot.

Also, I listen to more than one genre of music.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Some gangsta guy at college the other day asked me if I was a rocker, so I said yes (I couldn't be bothered trying to say anything else).

No, I hate that ****ing word and I wouldn't be able to say it seriously.

No, man. It's all about declaring yourself a "****ing rockstar". Rocker is a half word. No use.

Rap is music,far better than metal for example. id much rather hear about hoes and anal sex than dragons and supressed homosexuality.

After a gig once, these two kids were trying to smoke me out. I politely declined and then one of the guys says, what kind of rocker doesnt party eh? I just lost it laughed and for a good 3 minutes.

People that label themselves really irritate me, I wouldn't care if anyone said I was a "rocker" but I wouldn't tell people that's what I was
#20
I cringe every time I hear someone describe themselves or someone else as a "rocker". Ugh, I even hate typing it.
#21
No and it annoys me when other people use these words to describe me:

1.)Rocker
2.)Mosher(as if it were some kind of sport)
and 3.)Grunger(I don't even listen to grunge)

I don't mind:
1.)Headbanger
2.)Metalhead
3.)That long-haired guy

As I Lay Dying mentioned with VH and Opeth? I'm a fan of AILD but they shouldn't have been compared to those two.

Anyway I would never call myself a "rocker", I prefer musician.

"I'm a Rocker"


Good AC/DC song. No, I've never said I was that, but I wouldn't find it insulting if I was. I'm one of the only rock guitarists in my school.
#26
Well seeing as my favourite bands are Deep Purple, Led Zep and GNR, I'm pretty honoured if people call me a rocker after a gig.

It doesn't really have a negative meaning over here.

This.
When people label themselves things like "Headbanger, emo, metalhead, grunger" it makes those people look like they have no knowledge in anything but the music they listen to, imo.

Ah good I'm not the only one.

Seriously though, I don't use it as a description but it's what I call my mates if you get me.

Eg. "Hiya rocker, you alright?" and so forth, something alot of us do back in Yorkshire.

No, seeing as jazz artists don't usually rock.

I'd say I'm a swinger, but that has certain other connotations with it that I do not wish to associate myself with.
