LOL Bob....in the even I ever settle down and have kids, rap and hip hop will not be tolerated in my home. They will be raised on what I like, Aerosmith, Kiss Airplane, Janis Joplin, Lynyrd Skynyrd. I guess it really is ture, at least in todays youth for the most part. " If your parents hate it, it must be great". I would never say music made by black people is all that bad by any means. Theres some awsome blues out there , and Aretha franklins older stuff is great too and i wont even start on Ray Charles greatness. But todays rap and hip-hop is just crap thats here today and gone tommorow. Ripping off good rock songs and adding a rap to the beats. Breaks my heart to accidently hear some rapper using the beat or guirat riff from a timeless classic song for their own gain. Cant they make their own work up instead of using other poples ideas from the 60s or 70s ??
