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.

Could Hurt And Pain Truly Stunt You?

Have Defamation And Failures Been The Bolt From The Blue?

Would You Open Up Your Soul To Explore The New?

Again Feel Fresh As a Dew?

Pour Some Pixie Dust On You…and Binge on To Brit Rock Melodies To Eternity…

Transitioning through the slim veil of emotional defence to emotional freedom, everything inside you is changing with a rhythm of Keanes’ Everybody’ Changing, not necessarily a heartbreak, or hurt painful enough to stunt you, but pain, hurtful enough to make you evolve, love yourself not out of motive but wanting to experience life because you have been showed with the pixie dust of Brit Rock bands reminding you the meaning of love, material, spirituality, relations, through the song and lyrics of The Beatles, Keane, Love Bites and Hysteria of Def Leppard, or maybe if you are musically living your daemons singing Ozzy Ozbourne, the choice is yours, or may be climb up the wonder-wall of Oasis.

Feel the universe within with Kulashaker’s Govinda, or sing to eternity humming the discography of The Rolling Stones. If love for material is all left in you, let music remind you the priceless side to life Brit Rock bands make you fathom with music tapes-tried with lyrics. Turn on the playlist like a good habit, listening to the motley gumption from Travis celebrating with Sing, knowing Love Will Come Through, and feel Undone With Duran Duran when your heart wants to be nothing but the melodist composing your own tune and rhythm of life.

Love, lost in the contest of life, lost and found in music, art, and finer artefacts, we have forgotten we need love, because we are not mortal machines covered with lacy doily, saying the world all is pretty carrying a heart turned stone-cold and frozen. Let music melt you, make you shed some tears of joy without relevance or meaning…coz just being is priceless.

You do have a new place to go in your wandering mind and soul, endlessly searching for new avenues, older paths revisited with newer thoughts and emotions, and gumption where the past does not want to look dreary, not shed a tear of regret because music and art sojourns you through time back and forth, and makes everything magical.
