Transgender Blog Challenge Day 16: My Rock Anthem

Today's question is:
What is your rock anthem?

My "rock anthem" is actually really easy... it's "I Am" by Godsmack.  It really doesn't have anything to do with me being trans, though, it has to do with the journey I went through to re-discover my God and the church I've since left.

Godsmack has the distinction of being the first band I actually legitimately purchased a CD from.  This song was actually on that first CD, but I didn't really pay much attention to it.  It wasn't until years later when a friend of mine let me put a bunch of his music on my iPod that I grew to like the song.  And it wasn't until I'd fully converted to Kemetic Orthodoxy that it became sealed in my head as "Me and Set's Song."  Because it really feels like that's what it is, from all the pokey little quirky references that seem to be about that journey.

I don't really feel the desire to go through and write a full run-down of what all about this song is significant, as most people who read it will not understand that significance anyway.  But yeah, that would be the answer to the question.
