It’s time to get the Led out!!!
Never let it be said that white d-bags despise all manifestations of culture. We like corporate culture. We like juntas. And we love the classics.
Jeff Beck, Kiss, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Hendrix, Judas Priest, The Who, Kansas, Molly Hatchet, Deep Purple, Clapton, The Allman Bros., Aerosmith, The Eagles, Boston, Queen (only the stuff that rocks — not the gay stuff), CCR, The Rolling Stones, those two Steppenwolf songs, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, and Van Halen are essentials in any d-bag’s cultural education. Classic rock, cock rock, sometimes even yacht rock take up rows of shelf space in every d-bag’s CD collection.
But what makes a classic for a d-bag? The answer may not be as obvious as it seems. For example, classic rock does not have to come from the classical period (roughly 1967 to 1977). Conversely, not all rock produced during this period is classic. For example, the British rock group Sweet, though producing arguably classic rock songs like “Ballroom Blitz” and “Fox on the Run”, does not get airplay on classic rock stations; whereas Journey, whose music and lead singer Steve Perry are arguably pussy, are not only a FM rock staple, they are also (oddly enough) a band that many d-bags, who have been convinced by their GFs to go to the O’Flannery’s in the mall for Karaoke, choose for emulation and personal embarrassment. In the same way, jam bands like The Greatful Dead are not classic rock, but are a favorite of most bros who search for the classical roots of favorites like Jack Johnson.
Classic rock is an important category of cultural identification for white d-bags specifically because it screens out ethnic subsets of d-bags from mainstream d-bags. Country, Metal (and its many subsets: glam, hair, death, etc.), and Rap are categories that separate physically white d-bags from culturally white d-bags. The former group may be rural or urban rather than ex-urban; and though many d-bags are actively anti-intellectual, paradoxically many of them have university degrees, some from Ivy League institutions or their near correlatives. For the better sort of white d-bag, it is important to not limit oneself to genre music (Toby Keith, Eminem), but rather to embrace what has been acknowledged for generation(s) to be superior quality expressions of d-baggery: Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd, AC/DC or any non-American, Anglophone blues band who more or less crassly ripped off the music of SBM.
