Godsmack Econ Project For High School!!!

Wed, Oct 10, 2012 at 3:35 PM By: tcwest9

So i'm a junior in high school and in econ class we have to do a rock band summer tour project. They said pick your favorite band....well duh Godsmack! My teacher gave me a weird look and i said did someone pick them already? he said no its just that they are a little innapropriate and i don't know how your parents would feel about this. I said dude my parents love Godsmack they have seen them twice they don't care! haha so now i get to do an entire project for school on Godsmack and scheduale and budget a pretend summer tour for them. Never loved school so much in my life!

    Too awesome! I love the part where you ask if somebody already picked Godsmack. Unfortunately, like a lot of people, your teacher is very judgmental and has no idea what he's talking about (inappropriate my ass!!). I like playing Hollow (from the CD, that is) for people then telling them who it is. A lot of them are surprised because they too have passed judgement.

    I'm 50 & have been jamming to metal since Black Sabbath played on the radio - AM radio back then! And yeah, Lamb of God's latest album is so heavy. I love Slipknot and not just because I'm from Iowa.

    Last summer we went to a Saliva show, where the first band was "Minitellica" or something like that. It was 3 little kids (10 - 12 yrs or so) playing Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Pantera etc. So don't give up on kids liking the genre. As with them, you're lucky to have parents with great taste in Music. Keep kicking ass & Rocking On!!

    and my parents like this kinda stuff too. But i really feel a connection with this kinda music and thats why i love it so much. So yes my parents had some influence but i wouldnt listen to it just cuz someone else likes it i only listen to music i truly like and can connect with.

    im 16. yeah i like alot of heavier music like avenged sevenfold, lamb of god, and slipknot. The thing is im not like some punk ass rebel teenager either haha I would consider myself sort of a jock haha ive played baseball for 12 years and i just enjoy good music. I love to play this kinda music on the drums and in my band. But the hard part about my band is that no one my age really likes this kinda music so its hard for us to establish a fan base mostly because we don't sound like justin bieber or niki minaj or any of those other "artists" haha

    *lol* very true! Now Im am actually surprised you like Godsmack - since you're still young...I have to guess 15/16 y.o. as we have a different school system here in Oz all the kids around your age i know through my martial arts club don't know who Godsmack is!! *lol* But I have to assume you're parents are big influences in who you like & don't like Music wise ;)
