Number One: THEY’RE FUN! Right. Reading why someone else thinks Led Zeppelin is the greatest hard rock band of all-time and agreeing with them is killer! Even better sometimes, is when you disagree and think the writer has a few duds in their Top 20 that your list could knock the shit out of. Then, sort of expectedly, someone sends you or you read their Top 20 List and it’s better than yours. You learned something and some artist you’ve never given anytime to and you fall in love with them. Pretty fuckin’ cool huh?
Numbers Two thru Seven: SEE ABOVE.
Number Eight: YOU ALMOST ALWAYS FIND SOMEONE SMARTER AND BETTER THAN YOU AND IT CHALLENGES YOU.
Number Nine: YOU ALWAYS FIND SOMEONE DUMBER OR AT LEAST LESS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND YOU TEACH THEM SOMETHING. VERY REWARDING.
Number Ten: sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll.
Number Eleven: “BUT THESE GO TO ELEVEN,” AS DO ALL YOUR STEREO EQUIPMENT. YOU ARE THE LOUD NEIGHBOR!
Number Twelve: ‘Cause 12 Packs ROCK!
Number Thirteen: Friday the 13th is your lucky day oF the year.
Number 14: Saturday the 14th.
Number 15 thru 20: “I’m too happy to write anymore ’cause metal ROCKS and I need to hear me some Master of Puppets on cassette, in my garage. 83 degrees outside and about to grill me some steaks.
