What Type of Music Does A Gypsy Listen To? 
My Top 10 Favourite Bands
My Answer:

I was going through the comments and emails you guys sent me and I found one that just needed answering. 

"Who are you top 10 fave bands?"

Simple. Can be answered quickly without me writing lots of stuff. I like it. Let's see how short I can keep a video embed based article.

;)

My only concern is... can I keep this down to ONLY ten?

How about we do 3 songs from each of my fave ten? And hope we can stop at 10...

You'll notice my #1 top 3 faves missing: Liberace, David Bowie, and Falco, because they are singers and not bands, though, I may figure out a way to bring them into this. 

There were multiple questions, worded multiple ways. Most of them asked: "What music do Gypsies listen too?" and had some sort of sterotyped mumbo-jumbo about bare foot belley dancers and violins.

Uhm... no... that's Romani, not Gypsy. We are Gypsies not Romanis, but, hey, you're in luck, because three, real live Gypsy bands did make it onto this list, so not only do you get to see what type of music we Gypsies listen to, you get to listen to real live Gypsies as well...

I have a feeling, you're gonna be pretty shocked when you see the first (and rather famous) Gypsy band that appears on this list... hint... it's psychopathic rap music, straight from Psychopathic Records... if you know what band Psychopathic Records is known for, you know who it is, if not... keep scrolling down, you'll see them. (Yes, I let you know in the description which one they are. Kind of have to given not many people expect them of being Gypsies.)

So, for everyone who ever wondered what I listen to when I listen to music, what I buy, when I buy CDs and still LPs, yes, I do still buy them when available... here's that answer...







My Top 10 Favourite Bands:
System Of A Down

I'm a professional boycotter, and founder of the Proctor and Gamble Boycott... did you really think System Of A Down won't be right on the top of the list?

If you ever go to a large scale protest and wondered who the wrote the protest lyrics being played, usually it's System Of A Down.










My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Ghost BC

Run, Christians, run... real live Satan worshipers ahead... meet the Black Pope himself... Hail Sataunas!










My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Rammstein

Run Klansmen, run, it's the Nazi hating Germans...

Say no to white power!




My dad's an Old Orchard Beach fire man, so let's get one more in here...


Now is there a firemen on the planet who doesn't want THAT fire truck? Love it!







My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Rob Zombie

He's not a band any more is he. Started out as a band name, now it's his name. Confusing. Possibly belongs on a top 10 singers list instead, but I'll put him here as it was a band name originally.

This is what metal would have looked like in the 1970s.

And I want his hair. I'm half way their... got the dreads, just need to let then grow a few more feet.




There's too many songs that I like. I can't narrow it to just 3. Here's a 4th one.

Ever seen me CosPlay this song? 

Yep, that's what I bought the top hat for. It's was this video that inspired my living dead girl costume...








My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Marilyn Manson

Another one that started out as a band and became the man, but as the name was originally a band name, let's stick him here. If I do a top 10 musician list, I'll stick him there too, cause I love this guy.










My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Avatar

If you liked Manson, you'll love the fan band that idolizes him..










My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Tin Machine

YES! I found a way to get god in here... I mean Bowie.











My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Poison

C.C. DeVille.

Nothing else needs to be said... other then the fact that I have more then 700 posters of C.C.DeVille on my walls and ceiling back in the 1980s. And I still own every one of them.

Anyone remember when he came to Old Orchard Beach? (Or is like me still on the constant look out for him because he still comes here every year?)

Wow - you should have seen me in the '80s when I was 24/7 CosPlaying C.C.DeVille.

I practically worshiped him.

Still do.

And yes... I do like guys who are shorter then me, that does have a lot to do with why I went nuts over C.C. one the shortest guitar players in rock history.

(That's Rikkie's real car btw... it's it gorgeous?)

Do you remember when Bishop Morgan went and called Pine Land Center (Insane Asylum) to have me institutionalized for "demon possession and Satan worship"?... it was for sneaking a Poison casset tape into the Gold & Green Ball and blasting "Unskinny Bop" through the church dance.

:D










My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Insane Clown Posse

They're insane.

And they're clowns.

What's not to love?

People are always walking up to me and saying "I love Gypsy music." Then they drone on about violins and harps.

I'm sorry, what does violens and harps have to do with Gypsies?

You want to listen to Gypsy music, then you might want to listen to music actual MADE and sung (sung?) by Gypsies.

Here have some REAL Gypsy music...






I'm sorry, but, we Gypsies are NOT Romani... Gypsies are the ones with clowns, art cars, bright coloured clothes, wild face paint, dread locks, carnivals, festivals, and circuses... that would be... US, REAL Gypsies.

We go out of our way to be shocking, make money off side shows and freaks... hey, I own "The World's Most Haunted Car", remember? That's a name it's billed as in side shows.

You know I'm trained as a professional clown, right? 

Did you know I was a clown for several years? It's why I am absolutely bull headed and fearless in the face of everything, and am able to laugh in the face of the most violent people while keeping my cool and not losing my temper the way Americans do.

They don't call us "carnies" for nothing you know.

Stephen King said he picked our clan to be featured in The Thinner movie, because he said our every day lifestyle fit with "his vision" of what he thought of when he thought Gypsies. 

You know what? Because there isn't enough Gypsy music by real Gypsies out there, let's give you some more...






Still want to drone on about violins and harps and dancing barefoot around bon fires?

We ain't the Romani of Disney's Hunchback of Natra Damn... sorry to destroy your illusion about who and what we Gypsies are.

Not part of the top 10, but since you wanted Gypsy music: 
Dropkick Murphys

And since you wanted REAL Gypsy music, by REAL Gypsies, here you go, MORE Gypsy Music by MORE Gypsies...

(These guys are local by the way, if you ever want to see them live.)

These are the Irish Travellers... a little bit different from us Gypsies, but way closer to us then the Romani are.




Notice how real Gypsies have bagpipes and calliopes and not violins?







My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Feuerschwanz

And speaking of violins and Gypsies...

here's both... violens with Gypsies...

It's like, Monty Python set to metal and tossed into Comic Con, turned into Elves, added a few furries, and sent to spaaaaace!

Live action Dungeons and Dragons in space... OtherKin with guitars...

It's SpellJammer set to music! 

Yaaay!

German SpellJammer Medieval Rock Opera is EXACTLY what this world needed.

This is a group of LARPers who sing about their Dungeons and Dragons space adventures, while protesting the German government.

And if you don't know what LARPing, OtherKin, Furries, or SpellJammer is, then you've missed the bus on a great time.

That first video here, gives you an inside look at a mass gathering of multiple Gypsy clans... look at all those bearded men in kilts... is there anything better?









I love this band.

You can tell... they got way more then three videos added here.

Those who know German need no explaining, but for everybody else... this is comedy rock and if you knew what they were saying, it's hysterical.







My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
NIGHTWISH

Metal and opera... best thing to happen to opera.

Is this the only girl band on my list?











My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
SALTATIO MORTIS 

Uh oh... we just hit eleven...

This is a great eleven.











My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Eisbrecher

Heck, might as well go for twelve...

One of the absolute best bands ever. How else do you think they made this list? (a bit late)











My Top 10 Favourite Bands: 
Lordi 

Thirteen, this just became a top 13 list...

Lordi should be 13. He's like being 13. Thirteen is a good number for him.

Did you know this was a Christian rock band.

Eat your heart out Old Orchard Beach... this is what none Ku Klux Klan Christians look like.

...The Devil is a loser and he's my bitch... lyrics REAL Christians would be singing, rather than murdering gay men. Sorry, OOB, but, your white power dicks just aren't Christian enough for me.

ALESTORM




FIDDLER'S GREEN



Accept




Megaherz





Hamsa
Eye of The Grigoi
Eye of the Watchers

Hand of God
