Father’s Reaction To Heavy Metal Music

When you are born into a generation full of Rhythm’n’Blues Rockabilly, 1960’s early pop music, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, mods and rockers like The Rolling Stones, and mainstream protest songs like Fortunate Son by CCR, you can only imagine how someone would react to hearing heavy metal music like this man did…

The song you hear in the video is called Alerion from Asking Alexandria, an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire. Asking Alexandria’s music has been described by critics as screamo,metalcore,electronicore, and heavy metal. Ben Bruce, the band’s lead guitarists has stated in various interviews that he draws influences from Blink-182, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa, Metallica, Slipknot,Deep Purple, Michael Buble, Foreigner,and Ozzy Osbourne.

I could only imagine my own father’s reaction to hearing this song, but I am confident that it would be pretty close to the same as what you see in this video. And to think that Asking Alexandria was influenced by many of those that made up the greater part of music in the 60’s. In the words of Edwin Rolfe and Lester Fuller, “Never judge a book by it’s cover”. But watching this reaction will still make you laugh.
