{     12 moments of rock-related confusion (chronological) (aka aggravation or enlightenment)     }    

1) The album cover of Bowie's Low. Try explaining to a 5 year old that it isn't her best friend's mom.
2) The discovery that Rocky Raccoon wasn't actually a raccoon. Not so cute anymore.
3) Hearing "Lola," being seven, having Dad explain (roughly) what it was all about. Darn you again, David Bowie.
4) Sgt Peppers, the movie.
5) "Bad Music for Bad People." On our 8th grade class's KY field trip, my Walkman broke. Some boy named Jeremy loaned me his and that was the tape inside. Confusing, and then awesome.
6) The Jesus & Mary Chain's "Upside Down." Noise as music, and lovely too.
7) Seeing the video for the Cocteau Twins' "Carolyn's Fingers." What kind of Snow White-ish, bluebirdy stuff was this? I hated it, and then I loved it.
8) Spacemen 3 : "Performance." The Tower Records in Nashville had an imports section. It was the first I had seen, and that was the tape I bought. Minimal rock that forever changed what I listened to.
9) Listening to "Loveless" on cassette. I kept taking the tape out because it sounded like it was getting destroyed.
10) Neutral Milk Hotel's "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea." I thought it was gonna sound like the Olivia Tremor Control. It didn't.
11) You should've seen my scowly look when I first heard Of Montreal's "The Gay Parade." Especially "Fun Loving Nun." The biggest wtf? of my life.
12) I am most recently confused by the baffling critical adoration of the Decemberists. I don't understand it at all.

I'm still confused by the Velvet Underground's "Heroin". What's the message here, kids? 'Cuz I'm not getting it. Is this maybe some kind of obscure reference to drug use?
