Уикэндовой музыки псто

Сегодня оммаж гранжу 1990х (am I getting an old fart ;)) и We Die Yound by Alice in Chain

Вещь, imho, отражает non-softy-хипстерский Zeitgeist того времени (что не обязательно хорошо).



По поводу "о чем собственно базар" - songsmeaning.com вам в помощь. Ребятки из Сиэтла, как и Нирвана, и так в начале 90х были всплеск youth gangs wars (гопнические войны). Основатель и гитарист AIC, Jerry Cartnell пишет: "I'd just temporarily moved in with Susan Silver because Sean [барабанщик группы, Sean Kinney] and I had just had a fight. So I was riding the bus to rehersal and I saw all these 9, 10, 11 year olds with beepers [кажется это сленговое для гаджетов того времени - пейджеров и старых мобил] dealing drugs. The sight of a 10 year old kid with a beeper and a cell phone dealing drugs equalled 'We Die Young' to me"  Ну и вокалист Layne Stanley, умерший от передоза герыча и кокса в 2002 г., как полагается рок звездам, писал в 1991 г.: ""We Die Young is about gang violence. That was
something that was happening in Seattle, something that kinda opened our eyes. It just seemed like things were getting out of hand. Incidents where kids were getting shot, and getting their tennis shoes ripped off their dead bodies. It just seems like these kids are dying at younger and younger ages and getting involved in gang activity."

Но вообще, прикольное было музыкальное комьюнити






Scary's on the wall
Scary's on his way
Watch where you spit
I'd advise you wait until it's over

Then you got hit
And you shoulda known better
And we die young
Faster we run

Down, down, down you're rollin'
Watch the blood float in the muddy sewer
Take another hit
And bury your brother

And we die young
Faster we run
Scary's on the wall
Scary's on his way

Another alley trip
Bullet seek the place to bend you over
Then you got hit
And you shoulda known better

Faster we run
And we die young
