The Beastie Boys. Need I say more? When most think of the rambunctious rap group from that came straight out of the 1980’s, they think about girls, partying, crude humor and maybe some music in between. Although The Beastie Boys as a group did a few things that had never been done before in music history. Thats pretty incredible considering nobody expected something so revolutionary to come from three middle class white jewish kids from New York.
Two of the biggest groups to separate themselves from the other bands of the 1960s were the Beach Boys and the Beatles. Each had their own style of rock ’n’ roll and their own way of creating new music. The Beatles had a very British pop style at the start, which morphed into their unique style of music as they blended and mixed it with different kinds of “world music.” The band worked together to write and develop their style, which was different from the Beach Boys “whose creative center was unquestionably one member of the group” (Starr & Waterman, 305) Brian Wilson. Through Wilson, the Beach Boys developed a surfin’ style of rock ’n’ roll and like the Beatles, Wilson liked to experiment with different instruments and effects to change their sound. Having the ability to play with their music like this meant that they needed an encouraging producer, like the Beatles producer George Martin, or they needed to be the producer, so Wilson took on the job.
From 2001 to today, Fall Out Boy has become one of the iconic teenage boy-bands. If you were to start playing it in a room full of females, there’s a 80% chance someone would start screaming. The legacy began in Illinois as a hard-core rock band, where Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, and Joe Trohman (they went through a series of drummers before deciding on Andy Hurley) stood in Joe’s garage fishing for old, battered instruments. There they created their first album, Take This to Your Grave. Next, they produced From Under the Cork Tree, Infinity on High, and the flop of Folie a Deux, before they went on hiatus just to come back three years later and create Save Rock and Roll. The most recent album they created was American Beauty/American Psycho, and they are in the process of making another one now. Fall Out Boy was one of the reasons Fueled by Ramen, an American record label that was struggling to get onto the music train, skyrocketed years later.
Also a lot of money is spent every year on songs and albums in the United States; one billion dollars, to be exact. Of all the people who are spending that $1 billion, teens make up about 75%. All these teenagers out there buying music have helped the band Chicago certify themselves as gold (noyer,1995). Electric flag and blood, sweat, and tears made a trail for the band Chicago. Chicago went on to do great
In front of Hitler, the Washington rowing team was the victor the 1936 Olympics. The Washington team was a handful of boys who had come from the Wild West during the Great Depression. They didn’t have money, but they had power and a willingness to work hard. Joe, the main character, had innumerable experiences in his life that he could of used to destroy him, but they only made him stronger. Conversely, plenty others would have given up. The boys on the Washington rowing team were not in the latter category and they worked arduously through everything to achieve their goals. “Boys in the Boat”, by Daniel James Brown, proves that anyone can overcome disadvantages using hard work, trust, and teamwork.

In “The Boys Are Not All Right” by Michael Ian Black, the author uses different powers of persuasion to convince the audience to succumb to his opinion that men today don’t know how to properly express their feelings because of cultural norms that expressing your feelings is associated with weakness and femininity. He starts the article by drawing on the fact that almost all mass shootings have been committed by men. He says that men tend to lash out in anger because they don’t know how to properly express their feelings. He attempts to persuade his reader to start a conversation on how to make it more acceptable in society for men to express their emotions in a way that doesn’t potentially hurt others.
The name Tough Little Boys, a country song by Gary Allan, sends a message to those who are going to listen to it, that this is about how boys or any males should act. The automatic assumption just seeing the title of this song is that it is going to tell boys they must be tough. Although once actually listening to the song one realizes that it is, in fact, talking about how males should act, but it isn’t strictly talking about how a man should be tough. It is actually highlighting a very emotional part of a man’s life and it is celebrating it. The overall message that Gary Allan is trying to send his listeners is that that men should still be tough and strong, but they must also have a soft spot for their children.

Hail the human race, but I never knew a person can gyrate their body part of their body with such vigor and dedication such as I see today. I doubt if whether Elvis Presley were to wake up today he would do a gig with Justin Bieber or Shakira and go home celebrating how they fired up the place. Or would he go home complaining how the song lacked harmony, or they were too synthetic or lacked a particular instrument? I don’t for a second doubt whether The Beatles and Lady Gaga would find common ground when it comes to rebellion and controversy, but would share the same platform. Disappointingly, this new crop of musician will always find a way to get inspired by a Diana Ross, a Michael Jackson, or an Elvis Presley. These are some of the woes I go through when I look at today’s popular music, and they are the reason why I mourn for the good old and gone times of Thriller, and Billie Jean. Almost every decade that passes always comes with a new style of music, but the 1980’s was a period of exponential evolution in the pop industry that has remained unmatched to date.
“In the streets it 's getting hot, And the youths dem a get so cold…” are the famous lyrics of Reggae sensation, Richie Spice, that pivots around writer and director, Ian Strachan’s Gun Boys Rhapsody. It is one of Ringplay and Ceibo productions’ latest and most heart-wrenching dramas. It provides a host of parody, humor and tragedy on a fictional Caribbean society, I-Land. Strachan dedicates the theatrical piece to his former student of C.I Gibson, Marcian Scott, who was brutally brought to his demise in his driveway by a convict out on bail, in 2006. Gun Boys Rhapsody investigates the impact of crime and violence on the youth of the Bahamian society. It is centered around the murder of a high school student named TK and the chain reaction it has on the lives of other individuals linked to him. As a result of this production I am positive
