Joey's The Wall 2 hour livestream re-uploaded in full.

Couldn't make it even half way through that. I've gone off a lot of The Wall over time, but aside from that, the tinny sound and the alerts and responses are too much.  Have I hit peak Joey?

Seemed to me in The Wall livestream that he was too distracted by the comments from live viewers (that I couldn't see, as it was a re-upload) and the donations to give his full attention to the music. If he does more Floyd, I'll give it a watch, but I probably won't bother if it's a live one.

I was going to chip into this thread by offering 'Kids react to...' which I found similarly heartwarming: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFWiEQyz2fQ

Inevitably there's a video showing someone (and surely he's acting the part of a massive cockend) reacting to it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16YtmBq6BL4

2017's gonna 2017, as they say.

This guy's reaction to Creep certainly took me by surprise. However, despite that being his most-popular video, he hasn't revisited Radiohead since (but did become briefly obsessed with Tool).

This link by the late, great Patrice O'Neal seems pretty apposite for this thread: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v1qKy4cMPUI&t=4s#fauxfullscreen

Are Megadeth Prog? 70s Prog?

Consider my post itself a reaction to making an interesting thread topic pointlessly specific.

I'm suspicious of these videos. You know the normal reaction people have when they experience music they're not into? They're usually a bit bored, because it's not their cup of tea. I can't really believe that these music lovers who've gone decades never listening to Pink Floyd have suddenly had their lives changed.

Yeah, that was probably a mistake to limit it.

Any interesting music reactions are welcome - from any era and any style.

I just watched the Joey Reacts video where he listens to War Pigs. The whole time he's watching some godawful CGI video someone made to accompany the track, looking stoned out of his mind and every couple minutes going "...wow" at it. Then afterwards he gives a basic 20 second review of the already basic message of the song. Cool.

I dunno man, I fuckin' love music to shreds, it's like the most consistently important thing in my life, but even when I first heard what I now consider to be the best music in the world, I wasn't being all like "woo! damn! this shit is flames!" at every turn. This stuff is pretty overblown, sorry grandads.

You're probably spot on there and what is happening is that people are enjoying someone listen to a song they love, more than the alternative of looking at an image of the album cover or whatever. It's an excuse to revisit some of the best music you've encountered in your lifetime. The viewer/listener ends up asking themselves what is it that really moves them about a song they'v heard countless times. But yeah I suppose all the 'fire' stuff is largely over-egged.

I kinda feel like this react phenom is an excuse to exercise our empathy muscles in an increasingly solipsistic world.  Fuck knows why else I've watched over an hour of kids and teens playing snes games today.

EDIT:  Fuck, that's the second time today I've inadvertently tee'd y'all up for a yewgate comment.

I love this whole genre of reaction videos, people who've spent most of their lives listening to one type of music just exposing themselves on camera to another with total naivety and sincerity. yes it could be fake, as mentioned up thread, but i don't get that feeling with this video or with that younger fella who listened to A Day in The Life for  the first time and was blown away by it.

This is charming, and i can easily imagine the aural delight he's experiencing because Mozart opera does  the same for me, to this day, years after I heard them first:

Lovely stuff!

Love his appreciation of Bohemian Rhapsody too - that song is the gift that keeps on giving!

I've also fallen down the rabbit hole of React videos recently. I enjoy Rock Reacts, two British metalheads (one of whom is Simon Miller who does wrestling stuff for WhatCulture and seems like the world's nicest person) listening to hip-hop, mostly recent stuff but some classics as well. Their reactions are very genuine. Nothing over the top. Sometimes they just get lost in the music and catch themselves.

I’d honestly really like to see reaction videos from people who don’t like the music and are able to articulate why. I love listening to contrary opinions for some reason. I’m just a negative prick I suppose. What’s so exciting about watching people listen to a guitar solo and say things like “oh my god... you guys... this is out there”? What’s revealing about that?

Amusing how so many of the dudes are blown away (so to speak) by Freddie Mercury.

And they all jizz over David Gilmour's solos, which is fair enough.

Joyner Lucas' I'm not Racist spawned some very interesting reaction videos. And there's one particular spot in the song that causes everyone listening to do a double take. You'll know it when you hear it.
