Re: Rock 'n' Roll ain't noise pollution!

Oh yeah I def know muddy waters, chuck berry, and jerry lee Lewis. I think people debate about what the first "rock n roll" song actually is before the 50s tho. That debate is like who exactly was the first punk group?

Re: Guilty Pleasures

Apparently many hardcore/metalcore bands have christian members. Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach (who just recently re-joined the band) is greatly inspired by faith. We came as Romans has christian members and built their message around positivity. Megadeth's Dave Mustaine has been a born-again...

Rock 'n' Roll ain't noise pollution!

We all know that one of the most significant ethos in grunge (or rock 'n' roll in and of itself) hails from practice in a raw, dirty, sometimes damp place. What are your favorite garage bands? Also, I personally think the indie pop/garage rock/post-punk revival groups that are topping the rock chart...

Re: Guilty Pleasures

They weren't AS religious as, say, Third Day? Or Audio Adrenaline? Yeah but Third Day and Audio Adrenaline never got anywhere near as famous or even approached the airplay that Creed got. Also I've never seen Creed live and I saw both Third Day and Audio Adrenaline perform several times and I grew ...

Re: Apocalyptica

Hey, I even got one or two of their albums (got them as a gift but anyway). I don't question their technical proficiency, I just said that even with four cellos (or rather celli ) they become less interesting as a pop/rock act after the novelty effect wears off. It's hard to write interesting songs...

Any good lesser-known symphonic/Prog/post-rock/math rock?

I'm a huge fan of all three of these. I enjoy calming ambience as well as storms of guitar and drum fury. I've heard of esteemed "symphonic rock" but often wonder if there's a great abundance of these that I dont know about. Are there? I know of the usual ones like Nightwish and Apocalyptica but the...

Re: Albums you have bought lately

Re: Hurt, Porcupine Tree

Yeah Porcupine Tree gets mellow alot of the time. I like songs of theirs like Open Car, Time Flies, etc. And I guess we respectfully disagree on Hurt. I like the singer's voice and the fact that they try a little harder than bands like Nickelback. I will listen to almost anything, my taste in music ...

Re: Guilty Pleasures

I like Creed's first two albums the most. Then they got crappy and fully generic. I liked them because they were dark and have humanistic, self-examining lyrics. I understand that's often overdone for lyrical content, but I'm just a sucker for that stuff. Some of Nickelback's songs are just fun to l...

Re: What's your stance on Tool?

I myself have always been a fan of intricate, dark, sometimes purely instrumental music. That's why I like Tool. I think whether or not people like them tends to reflect upon the effect of their music. Yes they have repetitive riffs. Some people will find that intricate and greatly planned out, whil...

Guilty Pleasures

I was greatly inspired by grunge as the next guy on this forum. What bugs me are the purists that incite strong language when bringing up bands like Nickelback or Creed or whatever. I will admit to liking a great deal of songs from them. That's just me. One of my first rock bands was Three Days Grac...

Re: Bush

Yeah Bush never really put out a consistent album IMO. Sixteen stone had some very repetitive songs on it, but the hits were good. Razorblade Suitcase was sort of the same, and I did like the Science of Things (where they started using some synthesizers). Golden State sounded pretty dumb, but I do l...
