I learned something interesting from Nathan today... The Beatles, at least according to him, are not a rock ‘n’ roll band. Nope, not rock at all.
After playing a couple tracks on the radio and despite my insistence that they are considered one of the greatest rock bands ever, Nathan remained steadfast.
“Daddy, this is not rock and roll! This is country music!”
Admittedly, I’m not the world’s biggest Beatles fan, but that still hurt. Bad. I dig The Beatles but I don’t regularly seek them out. In fact, it’s probably been more than a decade or even two since I willingly played them. It’s not them, it’s me.
Whatever the case, Nathan clearly doesn’t care for them.
So I tried to come up with something he’d think is fun that he’d also consider RAWK!
I came up with “Play With Me” by Extreme on Spotify. This has always been a go-to track for me because guitarist Nuno Bettencourt is an axe god.
Plus the lyrics list a lot of games that even Nathan has played.
He LOVED it.
But then Spotify played the next song in the Extreme queue... “Whole Hearted”... which Nathan immediately decried as country music, yet again.
So I quickly skipped to the next track, “Get the Funk Out,” which kicks off with some raunchy bass that Nathan loved.
He really is my son!
