    Who was it that wouldn't believe people thought the Beatles sucked? Here's your proof.

    Day 6- Stryper- Soldiers Under Command

    How fitting that this was my pick a day after i discovered Stryper released a new single (which is badass by the way). Yes yes, i know. This band is christian and lyrically not something that i can really identify with on a personal level. However, ive always seen myself open to various musical artists regardless of their belief systems or ideologies.

    At a time when i was discovering hard rock bands the cover art for this album sucked me in right away. Knowing they were christian i wasnt sure if i would like them but this album slays from start to finish. With songs like "Soldiers Under Command", "Makes Me Wanna Sing" "Reach Out", and "Battle Hymn for the Republic" the album showcases just how incredibly talented they are as musicians.

    So much so that my very first concert i ever attended was at Red Rocks with Stryper as the headliner, Loudness, and TNT as support. This release (and the one fhat followed To Hell With the Devil) allowed me to appreciate the artists visions when they write their material. Unlike most modern day christian bands who keep their lyrics open ended with interpretation depending on the listener Stryper was never afraid at this time to wear their beliefs on their sleeves.

    And i think that is something to appreciate no matter where you come from or believe in. Whether its the high pitched screams of lead vocalist/guitarist Michael Sweet, the axe wielding Oz Fox, or the skin pounding work of drummer Robert Sweet these guys proved that despite the type of message they were delivering that it could kick so much ass and they did just that.

    In a time when i was looking for rebellion as a teenager this release and band taught me to also keep an open mind with my musical tastes because in all avenues of music there are some gems that you would not normally not think to find.

    You should have bought two Stryper CDs and threw them both in the garbage.

    When I was a kid I damn near wore out my Bruce Springsteen Born in the USA cassette. Would I listen to that album very much right now? Probably not, but it still made my list because of how I remember listening to it as a kid.

    I should also mention Beastie Boys - License to ill. I don't know if there was a person that grew up in the 80's who didn't have that album. That album was enormously influential to the entire music industry.

    Also Run DMC's mid-80's albums. I'm not a big fan of rap but it's hard to deny the influence both the Beastie Boys and Run DMC had on music and culture.

    I'd have to throw some old school country in my mix too just because it was the soundtrack of my Sunday mornings growing up as a kid. Hank Williams Sr., Patsy Cline, and some more contemporary (for the time) stuff like Dwight Yoakam. For whatever reason I struggle with any Radiohead after Kid A, with OK Computer being my favorite. May have to give that another try with the newer stuff.

    I'm the opposite. I purged my CD collection recently and the only Radiohead CDs I kept were Amnesiac, In Rainbows, and King of Limbs. I was coming of age when In Rainbows came out which i'm sure is a big reason why it was so influential to my tastes.
