Never went to or wanted to go to any high school proms. I guess I was in the burnout crowd, proms just were not cool, by the time I was a junior we were hitting bars in NJ on the weekends.

Skipped my high school prom ... didn't have a girlfriend at the time, and it wasn't my scene anyway. I had a bit of an anti-social streak in high school so I saw no point in spending a ton of $$ on a tux and a limo and go to a party with a girl I didn't know to hang out with a bunch of people I didn't like...

Wow, I have no idea what the theme song was. I'm pretty sure it was by either Bon Jovi or Skid Row though. We didn't have 'prom' at the school I went to. We had jr/sr dinner dance and ONLY kids from our school that were jr's and sr's were allowed to go. So even though myself and several other people were dating people that went to the cross-town rival, they were not allowed to go, which made things pretty boring. I remember skipping out early to meet my girlfriend and several others at a party at the holiday inn. :beerbang:

Yeah, my school was one of those obnoxious yuppie factories that went the whole nine yards... prom was held at a fancy hotel ballroom somewhere, kids dressed up in tuxedos & ball gowns, took limo's to the event, etc.

 

I was working in a lumber yard for $4.25 an hour at the time and all of my $$ went towards buying albums and comic books. I didn't have the time or the money to worry about any of that other sh*t. :D

Wow, we're twins! ;)

 

I've never actually known anyone else who didn't go to their high school prom (or formal, as we call it here in Australia).

 

I never went to mine either. Everyone at the time said I'd regret it for all my life. I regret a lot about my teenage years and wish I knew then what I know now, but I don't regret not going to the formal. Like you, I had no reason to go and did not like most people there either.

We are few, but we are strong!! Anti-social a**holes UNITE! :beerbang:

 

I love when people tell me that I'm supposed to look back on high school with such fondness and warm fuzzy memories. F*ck that. For me, high school was an obstacle that I had to endure so I could simply get the f*ck out, not a treasure trove of memories to cherish.

 

...yeah, I hated that sh*t. :D

    • I think that is why the last 2 Nordic Union albums have flopped. The first album was probably 50/50.
    • Standard Frontiers approach. Take a bunch of demos written by one of their go-to songwriters, polish them up, get a popular name to sing on them and call it an album. Or, even more dishonestly, a "band."
    • OK, but ultimately boring. No wow factor and they played a bunch of songs I didn't know despite being billed as playing the debut. hey ho. 
    • Folk, Prog, AORish.... however you wanna categorize them, these are some of the best vocal harmonies I've heard in forever. Lots of comparisons to Crosby, Stills & Nash in the YT comments Figure this should appeal to some here....           “Troika“, combining the immense talents of Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train), Neal Morse (Transatlantic) and Ross Jennings (Haken), initially began with Morse writing some acoustic songs he thought would be enhanced by strong vocal harmonies. After reuniting with former Spock’s Beard bandmate Nick D’Virgilio, the duo specifically sought out Jennings to complete the trio (all of whom contributed material to the project). Recorded during lockdown, D’VIRGILIO, MORSE & JENNINGS delivers melodic acoustic-filled anthems, charged rockers and sensitive ballads – all part of the mix – and the unique blend of the three voices and styles have created an album in which you will encounter these musicians in a way you’ve never heard before. Are you a fan of acoustic rock from the ‘70s with a touch of classic rock thrown in? If so, you’re going to absolutely love ”Troika”. This mostly-acoustic rock offering spends the first half bathing you in Crosby, Stills, and Nash-like acoustic pop rock full of fabulous multi-part lead vocal harmonies while the second half throws in some Hendrix meets Styx meets Foreigner classic rock to up the attitude. It’s such a fine record that the masses need to hear, and while the super-group last name approach will work fine for prog rock diehards, it just doesn’t roll off the tongue for the people who will really enjoy this record the most – regular lovers of vocal harmony-rich classic rock. Heck, even calling the band Troika would have been simpler. This is one of those delightful albums that has soothing melodic wonders and ripping, ‘70s-vibe classic rock tunes, and there truly isn’t a weak link in the 12-song collection. If you’re one of those people complaining that they just aren’t making great rock albums like they used to, you’ll want to grab a copy of this CD as soon as it’s released. Highly Recommended   01 – Everything I Am 02 – Julia 03 – You Set My Soul on Fire 04 – One Time Less 05 – Another Trip Around the Sun 06 – A Change Is Gonna Come 07 – If I Could 08 – King for a Day 09 – Second Hand Sons 10 – My Guardian 11 – What You Leave Behind 12 – Julia (Alternative Version) [Bonus Track] Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train) – vocals, drums Neal Morse (Transatlantic) vocals, keys, bass, guitars Ross Jennings (Haken) vocals, guitar
    • "Down to the Devil" is quite catchy. Shame this is only available on VINYL and as a digital download as far as I can tell... 
    • Sad isn't it. Listened to Sultans last night. That was so good.  This still sounds like 1 endless song with different words. A travesty and a waste.
    • The Needle Lies-Queensryche
    • Yeah such a mark up from them on certain things recently...the Devils Train & Madhouse cds where up in the region too...unreal   it cost £15odd direct from record company...with VAT & postage.
