Undecided Says "Hello"
I've known Undecided for quite some time. Their name is easy to remember and they've got an active channel and Instagram account. Sometimes, when I'd see them in my feed, I'd like their posts, watch s...

"Not Ready To Make Nice"
Have you ever heard the song by Dixie Chicks called "Not Ready To Make Nice"? Do you know the story behind the song? I recently heard this song, and it was not what I expected it to be. I thought it was going to be one of those country songs about breakups or cheating. So, I had heard if it but never listened to it. One day I was listening to some songs and it popped up, and I heard some of it before being able to change it, and I thought to myself, "Hmmm... okay I am going to give this a real l...

Blues on Fire
Sometimes the blues will take care of everything and every mood. Sometimes, you need to crank up the volume, turn on the metal, and blend the blues and heavy metal in to something new. No one speaks to the pain I sometimes feel better than Chad Grey of the bands Mudvayne and Hellyeah. Whether its lyrics from Mudvayne or Hellyeah, the lyrics speak to my soul, and his music, along with his soul-piercing words bring me from the dark back to the light. As a songwriter myself, I have taken more inspi...

Red Velvet Beauty Ranking
Disclaimer: this list or ranking does not intend to degrade the beauty of certain members just because they place last on certain eras. All members are beautiful, and have their own charm and talent. However, depending on the concept, makeup, and outfits used during certain eras, these fit certain members better than than others; making her beauty stand out more than the rest. I tried to include all their music videos, even when Yeri was not part of the group, and those that they didn't promote ...

BLACKPINK Beauty Ranking
Quick disclaimer: this is just my opinion, and your list can, and it will, be different that mine. Each girl has a unique charm and talent. That is why depending on the concept, song, outfits, and makeup one of the girls is bound to stand out more than the others in beauty. I think they are all pretty, and that without one of them the group is incomplete. "Boombayah" 1. Jennie 2. Lisa 3. Jisoo 4. Rosé Jennie really fits "Boombayah's" style. When I first heard that YG was debuting a girl group, I...

Most Beautiful 2NE1 Members
I just want to put a disclaimer out there that this is just my personal opinion, and that your list may differ to mine. Also, all the members are beautiful, and they each have their own talent and charisma. However, depending on the concept of each comeback and music video, some members tend to stand out more than others. Not to mention their popularity of the time and how hard the entertainment company pushed a certain member to the public. For example, CL was constantly pushed by YG, and there...

Root of All Evil
"MONEY MY BEST FRIEND." My artist name is, Firelane. Fist and foremost, I was born and raised in Rialto, Ca, which is in the heart of San Bernardino County. Within San Bernardino County I've seen lots of crimes for money, I've seen a lot of ups and downs in my lifetime, poverty etc. Some crimes escalated to attempted murder/murder over that almighty dollar. I've been doing music for most of my childhood and adult life. While it is true that you can't live without it, and you can, and some will d...
