I am normally not a fan of his music, but this is not his normal work and man this song hits home. 😥 ❤
So even though I haven’t shared it yet, I have not deleted it yet and it is almost done meaning…I will finally share my mental illness and autism song playlists on youtube…but not just yet. ;o
Anywhooo…this band (well old band before they kicked out their front man) has been a part of my growing up and helped me through some shit, so of course they are apart of said playlists.
This song is still relevant to this day and a big fuck you to society.
Story time: Every time I hear this song or listen to it now I remember the first time I heard it. I instantly cracked up when Shim sang ‘You all hate your children, they are too fat to feed’ and my cousin was like what are you laughing at? A song that is meant to be more ‘serious’ has never made me laugh like this one. xD
As I have shared before, I have many songs that have helped me battle my depression and other well…fucked up shit. This one came into my life through another really bad time in my life a few months back. Just when I thought I was okay again and just maybe I battled my demons and I could put things like depression in the past. I thought I had my life under control for once and I was happy. I had bad days, but I was happy over all. Out of no where and for no reason, the thoughts and feelings of depression returned. Anxiety, anger, depression and other feelings took over my mind, body and life again. I almost lost my job and threw away my marriage. Most of these things I have losely mentioned on my post updates before, but if you are new or never kept up with those then just know it was really bad. Depression is not a phase and it is not sadness. If you ever experienced depression, you know it is crippling in more ways than one. Fighting depression again, I now know that even if I can be okay for months or even a year on end, depression will never truly not be apart of me or my life. It is something I will always experience, even when I can manage it at best. This song saved my fucking life, my job, my marriage and much more from my last visit from depression. It means a fucking lot to me.
Anywhooo…Last night at work, our team teamed up and stocked out the last aisle together. My friend who is also my coworker, has a similar taste in music than me. (I have mentioned him before, we use to work together 24/7 until he started dating one of our new ish co workers. Doesn’t matter tbh) He was blaring this song on his blue tooth speaker in the aisle. I felt like shit all night from cramps, I didn’t feel like going to work when I woke up for my shift etc….I was not feeling it at all. Since I felt like crap, I was really slow at work and it was making me really anxious and question a lot of shit I don’t need to. So obviously this song got me pumped and helped my mood. Another coworker who complains all the fucking time…of course complained about the song. I swear to God I almost lost my shit. Instead we turned the song up, all danced to it and laughed.
Ever wonder how I Prevail became famous or made it big time? This is how and I personally enjoy the cover in a weird way. It’s kinda different, but it not every day a metal band covers a poppy song. xD
I’m back at trying to work on my autism and mental health playlist. I plan to complete it by tonight if I don’t get distracted by twitch or The Sims 4. xD
Hello all my lovely bloggers and readers!!!
It’s question time guys!
I am hoping to start a conversation or discussion with this post as blogging is not always just about writing, but also being apart of and active in a community. You don’t have to take part obviously, but if you want to join in the fun you can do so by answering in the comment section, writing your own blog post and ping back to this post if you wish or use your imagination in how you want to participate.
What/who matters most to you?
My husband and family mean everything to me and if anything were to happen to any of them, my world would come crashing down. However, I feel this is something that is very obvious and goes without saying so…that is not my answer or what this post is about. 🙂
For me it is, music. In one form or another music has always meant a fucking lot to me and is a huge part of my everyday life. It is not always listening or writing music, but at some point of everyday will revolve around music. I can sit down or lye on my bed and listen to music for hours on end. Listening to music is not only one of my favorite past times, but it is something I will do when I am feeling really over whelmed or going through a really difficult time. I often listen to music in the background rather I am cleaning my room, doing chores, writing or playing a game. It can be background music, but it seems no matter what I am doing it becomes the main focus a lot of the time. It motivates me to be more active and also work faster. It helps keep my focus. A lot of the time I will hum a tune in my head and come up with my own lyrics. Sometimes I will write it down, especially if I like it or feel like I can make something out of it and sometimes I won’t. When I get songs stuck in my head as most of us do, I will sing it on repeat all day. I love to dance, even though I am a horrible dancer. I will spend hours dancing around my room or around the house and have since a child. Even though I am an extremely shy person I will dance in public when I am out with my husband, friends and/or family. I have thousands of songs by different artists and bands on my computer(somewhere around 6000 to be exact), ipod (yes I still use old school shit….almost 5000 on my ipod and that is without adding music to it in years) and I have huge collection of CD’s(I believe I have at least a 50 cd booklet filled to capacity including some slots have double cds as I ran out of room) from my child and teen hood. Unfortunately when I moved to the USA I had to get rid of the cd cases as I didn’t have the room to take them with me. I plan to rebuy all of them on cd or vinyl just so I can have cases for significant purposes. I have playlists on youtube or spotify for every single mood or activity etc. As cheesy or shallow as it may be, when my husband played the guitar and sang for me for the first time it actually helped me fall head over heels for him. It is like my weakness besides sense of humor. I listen and am more evolved with music than most people I know and it is difficult to describe just how much it means to me.
Music has been something that has always been there for me when no one else was. It has been every bit part of my journeys and growing up. It has saved my life multiple times, but it feels like it is more than that. It is my drug, religion and my life. I truly believe I would not be here today if it was not for music and that my life could not exist without it.
So my fellow bloggers and friends…what matters most to you?
I have been obsessed with this song for weeks now and when I mean obsessed like put it on repeat 20 times obsessed. xD This song is fucking amazing. ❤
I shared before I have had the pleasure to spend time on Twitch in Matthew K Heafy’s (guitar and lead vocals for Trivium) stream and he was working on an acoustic cover of Hells Bells by ACDC…for more information about that post you can read it here
Well…here is the final piece. Of course he had to perfect and share it on youtube live from his stream when the hubby and I were busy getting ready for our vacay or I actually forget why I missed it last Friday. Here is that cover. He really took his fans advice on his vocals and the acoustic for this one. xD
It is one of my favorite covers too of his! I think it’s truly amazing.
Later I will be sharing the hubby’s and I camping adventures and some pics. Stay tuned! 🙂
When you go into work and the truck load to work is huge and everyone is bitching making it worse with their negativity. xD
So burned out from work, tired of the whining at work…Last night I blared this song got super angry and pumped. Took it out on my job and stocked really fast. Hahaha
Vacation starts tomorrow. It is so overdue. It is only a mini vacay…two nights camping and then two nights off after to spend at home and just relax. 😛 Excited!!!
May share some pics from the camping trip…we shall see. xD
