The Stairway to Heaven

Coming back from a night art class that I take I found myself in traffic next to two kids in their early twenties in a white SUV playing and singing along to Stairway to Heaven really loud. Stairway to Heaven, according to Wiki, is 36 years old, being released in 1971. If you're in your early twenties and you're singing to something that was made when your parents were likely to young to really understand it you're not acting on your own opinion you're acting on something that was marketed to you as being a classic classic rock song.

Something that I take pride in is listening to music that's part of trends that started after the early '70. Classic Rock is a marketing tool used to sucker people like these fucks into listening to radio stations selling canned product with lots of ads.

Music is relative, dude. Calling people "fucks" for enjoying whatever kind of music it is they're enjoying (early '70s or not) smacks of classic classic Narcissism.
