January 2009 - Science TripIt was then me and my science class along with all the other science groups went to a trip to the science museum in central London, I was 14 at the time and listening to hip hop music thinking it was the best and all other music was 'gay'. When we were at the tube station (subway) waiting for out train this girl from another class but standing with me and a friend, we were chatting away until we sat inside a train and one of my friends saw advertisement which was like a heart and and pentagram put together, she said it was a heartagram used by the band H.I.M, she also talked about the Jonas Brothers but I never really got into them.
As soon as the trip was over I switched on the computer and put on Youtube......H.I.M - Buried Alive By Love, then switched to Green Day in the related videos, then My Chemical Romance, then by the end of that week alone I had listened loads of songs by different bands. Kings of Leon, Guns n Roses, Slipknot, Sytem of a Down.
I stopped calling other genres of music gay, all of the sudden I felt a sudden urge to play guitar. I spoke to the girl again the next week who recommended bands to me along with another guy who sent me links to different music videos and from there on I went to earlier bands such as Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Black Sabbath. I loved rock music since when it first hit my ears and I still do.
