Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

I think most of the "dadrock" thing is just a backlash against these tunes being played absolutely everywhere all the time. Even the best tunes will get old if you hear them once, sometimes twice or three times every day.

Not all dadrock meets those criteria. I wouldn't call anything AC/DC ever wrote to be mature, skillful, or intelligently structured. Unless you count Angus Young's ability to still make coherent musical sounds come out of his guitar when he's that shitfaced - that's kind of skillful.

No, but I was pointing out that not everything called "dadrock" is "mature," "skillful," or "intelligently structured." Also, not all of us have cable internet; I don't ever watch embedded youtube links. I kind of assumed you didn't post AC/DC, anyway. That was actually my point.

It's a term that exists. The criteria are that it's popular rock music and that it came out before the late 80s. It doesn't matter if you think the connotation is negative or positive; it is a term used to describe popular rock music from 30+ years ago. I like Kansas; that doesn't mean it isn't dadrock.

Yes, it does. It's not an official term, so it's subject to whatever anyone wants it to mean.

I from hence-forth now declare that the term Dadrock means "I'm a faggot who doesn't like older music because I'm a little 16 year old cunt who thinks modern bands need more air-time".

It's official.

I also officially label "Kidz Bop" as the alternative come-back to any faggot who uses the term dadcore.

Think of it this way: if there is some order to things, and there are souls, God and all that, it would make sense that there were some common element shared by all religions. Monotheism and disbelief in reincarnation are "recent" things. The opposite has been going on for thousands of years before. In fact, there has probably been more progress and greatness done before Christ than after, relatively (with the times) speaking. That's not to say that he wasn't an avatar, like other supposed avatars that came to Earth to guide mankind.

We do know however that the Bible is full of metaphors. And supposedly Hermes Trimegistus foretold of the rise of monotheism over a hundred years before Christ. And as has been pointed out by many scholars of Gnosticism and Occultism in general, there are certain common elements like the Caduceus, present in Greek, Egyptian and even Native American societies. Also, it's no wonder certain great minds like Isaac Newton had great interest in all this, because truly it's an amazing puzzle of mysteries.

There is however some other element in all that which is the suppression of one's carnal desires. Interestingly, alchemists saw celibacy as one of the key elements of sex alchemy, and that might just explain the link between virginity and becoming a wizard.

Thus, if we were to disregard skepticism and admit that there is some greater power, or universally linked collective consciousness, which possess an understanding beyond what a human mind could logically understand, seeing beyond the very concept of logic itself, much like how time and space are relative, we can conclude that: not only are you likely to live on this planet again, or somewhere else different, but being a celibate (even if involuntary, see ">tfw no gf") means your soul is in a more advanced state. That, of course, if you're not a creature of filth and degeneracy. So your suffering may net you positive consequences.
