I started listening to Metal Machine Music today. I'd downloaded it months ago, but never bothered to play it. It came up on random on my mp3 player.

Now, musically, it actually didn't bother me. I'm used to this kinda stuff. Dissonant, guitar feedback, noise noise noise. I like John Cage, too. Noise that's somehow principled, in that it's there for a reason, whether it's to mess with the concept of what music is supposed to sound like, or if it's just a "fuck you" to listeners.

But after about seven minutes, I had this intense desire to vomit. I'm not sure why--maybe it was the music. Of course, it could also be the medication I'm on.

I'll try playing the whole thing and see what happens.
