Rancid Let Me Go

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIzCEE-n7fI

It aint impossible, it ain’t easy
Opportunities shifting here
So far the strategy ain’t working the facts are in it’s so very clear

I do what I want I can’t predict the future
And those who can I know that they are lying
And then the truth can be hard to swallow
In a soap opera world leaders are cryin

Correction I need no direction
Let me go just one last time
I spent my whole life searching for direction
Let me go just one last time

Miley Cyrus the Climb

I can almost see it
That dream I’m dreaming but
There’s a voice inside my head sayin,
You’ll never reach it,
Every step I’m taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking but I
Got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high
There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

The struggles I’m facing,
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes they knock me down but
No I’m not breaking
The pain I’m knowing
But these are the moments that
I’m going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
And I,
I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on,

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

One shirt we had was the very popular “This Is Not A Fugazi Shirt” shirt, worn by punk/emo/music fans everywhere. Fugazi is one of those bands who are anti-commecialization, opting instead to sacrifice their profits to make sure the music gets out to fans. CDs are marked with both their price as well as an address to send money to buy it, in case your local record store won’t follow their insistance on the $10- and $11.99 max sticker price, and their live shows are legendarily still priced as low as can be – I recall seeing prices of $6, $10, $12 for shows that have come here over the years. Fugazi also did not sell merchandise like t-shirts, because they were a ripoff to fans and went against their ethic. Someone, however, cleverly decided to sell not-Fugazi shirts and as such, they were bootleg shirts that are perfectly legal. Nowhere on the shirt does it claim it IS a Fugazi shirt, and makes the point obvious in big, bold blue letters. But in doing so, it asserts that it is indeed a Fugazi shirt, just as does Magritte’s painting of a tobacco pipe, titled Ceci n’est pas une pipe (“this is not a pipe”). (I won’t get into the fact that his work really is not a pipe, but a painting of a pipe. It doesn’t suit my purpose here, but poses all kinds of interesting philosophical questions that I’ll let you ponder.)

Minor Threat’s song “Guilty of Being White” led to some accusations of racism, but MacKaye has strongly denied such intentions and said that some listeners misinterpreted his words. The song was inspired by his experiences at Wilson High School, whose student population was 70 percent black. There, MacKaye and his friends were routinely picked on by black students. Slayer later covered the song, with the last iteration of the lyric “Guilty of being white” changed to “Guilty of being right.” In an interview, MacKaye has stated that he was offended that some perceived racist overtones in the lyrics, saying, “To me, at the time and now, it seemed clear it’s an antiracist song. Of course, it didn’t occur to me at the time I wrote it that anybody outside of my twenty or thirty friends who I was singing to would ever have to actually ponder the lyrics or even consider them.”

“I’ve also been told there are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces! Well, I’m sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!” she said on her official fan site, MileyWorld, reports Perez Hilton, adding, “In no way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face. When did that become newsworthy?

“You guys know my heart and know the most important things to me are my friends, family, fans and God! In no way do I want to disappoint any of you! But when I have made mistakes in the past, I feel like I’ve owned up to them and apologized.”

She finished the blog post hoping that people stop concentrating on what she does outside of the spotlight. “Anyway, I really wish everyone would stop focusing on my personal life and get back to focusing on what I love! Music and acting! Hopefully, I will be touring again this fall! Yayy! It will be a nice change to be back out on the road again! xoxo Blessings.”

“I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone. I have learned a valuable lesson from this and know that sometimes my actions can be unintentionally hurtful. I know everything is a part of GOD’s ultimate plan, and mistakes happen so that eventually I will become the woman he aspires me to be.”

Ian

The other song that would probably be the most controversial in Minor Threat’s career was “Guilty Of Being White”. The song was actually about MacKaye’s experiences in his high school where white kids were the minority and were often targeted for the sins of their race, real or imagined, by black kids. Many people who saw the title, as well as the bald-headed MacKaye, assumed it was racist. There is some debate, even among Minor Threat, as to whether the song really is racist, although Ian still states that he believes it is not. Even if MacKaye’s intentions were good, many, even close allies, have come to view the song as rather “bone headed”. Years later, speed metal act Slayer would cover the song and change the lyrics from “white” to “right” (this, despite the fact that Slayer vocalist Tom Araya is a Hispanic who was born in Chile), a move that both Ian MacKaye and Brian Baker have expressed their extreme displeasure with.

One important aspect of Minor Threat’s ideology is that it revolved entirely around personal issues. Minor Threat, like many of their harDCore compatriots, avoided political issues. It seems odd that their movement would stay away from such topics, considering that the scene was located in the nation’s capital, but that’s how it was. Many acts, including Minor Threat, would go so far as to mock those who would get political. It was only years after Minor Threat’s demise that both Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson, like the DC scene itself, would become heavily involved in politics.

Ian and the DC scene had made a name for themselves for more than just their music. The DC scene was made of kids were overwhelmingly from middle and upper class families. The scene earned a reputation for being snobby, especially to people from other towns and scenes. New York City was an especially well known target of the DC kids. Ian, and long with friends like Henry Garfield (from S.O.A.), Sab Grey (from Iron Cross) and Mark Sullivan (the singer of the Slinkees, Ian’s first band), became known for heading to New York to shows and causing trouble. Witnesses have talked about shows where DC kids showed up and just started fighting, not even listening to the music. Despite the proclivity towards fighting, most of the violence was rarely very serious. Ian and crew thought of themselves as “defending the scene” and Ian admits that his goal was more to “bruise the ego” than do serious damage. Henry, long after he dropped the Garfield and assumed his famous last name, claimed he loved getting into fights and Ian recalls more than a few instances that he had to pull Henry off some poor guy he was kicking the crap out of. But Henry’s love of violence aside, the DC kids resented being considered a bunch of tough guy muscle heads, a nickname a rock critic gave them after they made their appearance at a Black Flag gig in NYC. There are stories were kids came down from towns like Boston, ready to prove how tough they were only to find the DC kids goofing around at shows. Still, the “muscle head” tag was there, and in response to it, Dischord named their all-DC compilation Flex Your Head.

Minor Threat

What lies in the future? Lyle and Brian are working on musical stuff together. Jeff and I are committed to working on our record company (Dischord).” Does Ian still want to do music? “Right now, the priority is the label. But I don’t feel creatively dried up or anything; I still have some more to do. I love to play, to get on stage, and MINOR THREAT was my perfect vehicle, and I may never be able to get one like that again. We were there, that’s all I can say!”

Dead Kennedys

Obscenity prosecution

In April 1986, police officers raided his house in response to complaints by the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC).[17] In June 1986, then–L.A. deputy city attorney Michael Guarino, working under then–City Attorney James Hahn, brought Biafra to trial in Los Angeles for distributing “harmful matter” in the Dead Kennedys album Frankenchrist.[18] In actuality, the dispute was about neither the music nor the lyrics from the album, but rather the print of the H. R. Giger poster Landscape XX (Penis Landscape) included with the album. Biafra believes the trial was politically motivated; it was often reported that the PMRC took Biafra to court as a cost-effective way of sending a message out to other musicians who have content considered offensive in their music.[19]

Music author Reebee Garofalo argued that Biafra and Alternative Tentacles may have been targeted because the label was a “small, self-managed and self-supported company that could ill afford a protracted legal battle.”[20] Facing the possible sentence of a year in jail and a $2000 fine, Biafra, Dirk Dirksen, and Suzanne Stefanac founded the No More Censorship Defense Fund, a benefit made up of several punk rock bands, to help pay for his legal fees, which neither he nor his record label could afford. The jury deadlocked 5 to 7 in favor of acquittal, prompting a mistrial; despite a district attorney motion to re-try the case, the judge ordered all charges dropped. The Dead Kennedys disbanded during the trial, in December 1986, due to the mounting legal costs; in the wake of their disbandment, Biafra made a career of his spoken word performances. His early spoken word albums focused heavily on the trial (especially in High Priest of Harmful Matter), which made him renowned for his anti-censorship stance.

Biafra has a cameo role in the 1988 film Tapeheads. He plays an FBI agent who arrests the two protagonists (played by Tim Robbins and John Cusack). Whilst arresting them his character asks “Remember what we did to Jello Biafra?” lampooning the obscenity prosecution.

On March 25, 2005, Biafra appeared on the U.S. radio program This American Life, “Episode 285: Know Your Enemy”, which featured a phone call between Jello Biafra and Michael Guarino, the prosecutor in the Frankenchrist trial. The episode was about Guarino’s change of opinion and the reconciliation between Guarino and Biafra.

Miley Charity

Charitable causes

Cyrus celebrated her 16th birthday with a charity fundraiser at Disneyland, which was closed early for the event attended by 5,000 fans at $250 per ticket.[73] The proceeds went to the charity Youth Service America, a youth volunteering organization.[74][75][76] Ten outstanding youth volunteers from Youth Service America were invited to attend,[77] and later in the evening, Cyrus presented a $1 million check to the organization.[78] In 2007, Cyrus made a contribution to the City of Hope, giving $1 for every “Hannah Montana” concert ticket sold. She said that “the cool thing about being a part of City of Hope is that they are a cancer research center. They’re not only helping kids that are there, but also finding out how they can heal them by figuring out what exactly is going on, which is amazing.”[79]

Cyrus has lent her musical talents to several charity benefits. Cyrus collaborated with fourteen other female singers to record a charity single titled “Just Stand Up!“, which the singers performed live during a one-hour primetime event for the anti-cancer campaign Stand Up to Cancer on September 5, 2008.[80] On September 14, 2008, Cyrus, along with other performers, performed at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California for the City of Hope Benefit Concert to help raise money for cancer research and training programs.[81] In 2010, Cyrus appeared on a charity benefit single organised by Simon Cowell in an attempt to raise money for victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake.[82] It is a cover of the song “Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M. and was released digitally in the UK on February 7.

Cyrus is involved in Disney’s Friends for Change, a social green project which promotes environmentally friendly behavior,[83] and appears in the service’s public service announcements to raise awareness for the cause on the Disney Channel.[84] In addition, she joined fellow Disney stars Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and the Jonas Brothers, to record “Send It On“, a charity single which serves as the theme song for Disney’s Friends for Change. “Send it On” debuted on the Hot 100 at number twenty.[85][86] Disney will direct 100% of the proceeds from “Send it On” to environmental charities through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF).[85]

I hopped off the plane at LAX

My tummys turnin and I’m feelin kinda home sick
Too much pressure and I’m nervous,
That’s when the taxi man turned on the radio
and a Jay Z song was on
and the Jay Z song was on
and the Jay Z song was on

CHORUS:

They’re playing my song,
And the butterflys fly away
Noddin’ my head like yeah
Moving my hips like yeah,

So hard with my girls not around me
Its definitely not a Nashville party
Cause’ all I see are stilletos
I guess I never got the memo

My tummys turnin and I’m feelin kinda home sick
Too much pressure and I’m nervous
That’s when the D.J. dropped my favorite tune
and a Britney song was on
and the Britney song was on
and the Britney song was on

CHORUS:
So I put my hands up
They’re playing my song,
And the butterflys fly away
Noddin’ my head like yeah
Moving my hips like yeah,

Back to my hometown tonight (town tonight)
Something stops me everytime (everytime)
The DJ plays my song and I feel alright!

CHORUS:
So I put my hands up
They’re playing my song,
And the butterflys fly away
Noddin’ my head like yeah (Oh, nodding my head)
Moving my hips like yeah, (Ooh Yeah)
