Philosophical Rock Bands With Gumption That Make You Think As You Sing

rock music philosophyRock music and sub genres are the most misunderstood for their in-your-face attitude, offensive lyrics, and blasphemy. Rock bands like The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Elvis Presley, Travis, and the list goes on speak about meaningful and deeper philosophies of life that make you think beyond the mundane hoopla. If we were only to exist without experiencing everything passionately, we are not giving ourselves the scope to venture into paths of newer wisdom and a way of life. Freedom of spirit is the paradigm of most of the philosophical rock bands that let you experience life, love, and relations deeply. The Beatles spirituality celebrated existential transcendence with their music making you sing along to the rhythm of oneness of the universe.

Living an unrestricted life of putting vulnerabilities on your sleeve takes evolution from within to get you there, and reach a realm in your mind and subconscious that sets yourself free from tapestry of distorted emotions arising from toxic attachments. We are humans, as living beings, we attach ourselves to people and things leading to melancholy away from the harmony the soul yearns to experience.

Rebellion is a philosophical struggle found in them music and lyrics of Metallica, singing about realities of life without viewing them from rose tinted glasses. The essence of freedom that splits away from illusion of reality is the crux of most of their songs. When you start making sense of situations, you cannot be deceived by illusions of appearances and look deeper. Metallica uses musical instruments from across the globe to create a blend of dulcet and energizing compositions.

Metallica has an artistic philosophy in its own right singing about deeper and darker emotions, an elegy with an edge of philosophy that does not drown in darkness of melancholy. Their lyrics have an unnamed feeling taking a view at the world that fills their mind with the rust of hatred still finding a reason to be alive. They do not sugarcoat the view of the world in their philosophical lyrics.

Kulashekar is doused in Krishna consciousness singing about the essence of elements that make the cosmos. Tattva and Govinda have simple lyrics but the composition takes your mind to a different realm. John Lennon singing about wanting oneness in the world through music is a dream that many dream about in this apocalyptic age. Green day has a strong take on the political philosophy.

All The Same by Sick Puppies talks about the beauty of love and oneness, an ideal world filled with love, compassion, and acceptance when you love someone deeply without wanting to fix or control them. It takes a broader view where there is no scope for a social control based on ethnicity, language, or community. An ideal world where everybody celebrates their way of life. Their songs sing about myriad things that life is made up of like success through chaos and misery. They also sing about the rebellion in being individualistic that could take one to the coffin for being themselves and living by with an archetype gumption.

Every rock band sings about deeper philosophies, not necessarily that speak about the higher realms alone but also about the mundane thought patterns, feelings, and emotions felt in our lives in different situations. The list is endless if you have to talk about how Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and many other bands changed the perceptions of people through their music, lyrics, and philosophy.

Doesn’t Bollywood Have Anything Else To Sing About Apart From Love Themes?

November 11, 2017

Isn’t Bollywood ever going to be tired of ‘love’ songs. Excuse moi? Isn’t there any other emotion to explore, such as, joy, nothingness, mischief, chaos, and everything in between. Either its romance or tragedy, and that is such a Borderline way to treat music. All or nothing! that ain’t what music is!!

Rock On made a nice attempt to sing about mundane things in life. But, that was a miss in a blink of the eye. Nobody even remembers “Pichle Saat Dino Mein”. Farhan tries to live the “I’m Cool” image through his movies, they do make you smile but aint for memories that movies like “Sound of Music” or “Beauty and the Beast.”

We love jugaad, we got no time for depth and deep feelings, because what are they anyway? They are the kind that today’s GenX likes to mock, because they don’t need it. They need popularity and likes on Social Media. What the hell are these deep feelings anyway?

But, Bollywood doesn’t want to give up with that bit, there is an avalanche of love songs…only…no new heights explored.
