Re: Lyrics that describe how you're feeling right now

I have got to stop smiling, it gives the wrong impression.

Re: Any reason why I can't watch "I Stay Away" online anymore?

In an ideal world, nobody would be allowed access to music online -- or at the absolute most, people would be able to do so only to a limited extent. It is hypocritical, very, and more-so controversial, I have explored my own musical fandom as a teenager through YouTube and similar sites as I know h...

Re: Strawberry Switchblade

I'm learning to play Strawberry Switchblade acoustically at this time -- I don't own any of their albums, however they are a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. I enjoy how they write seemingly poppy songs about nuclear annihilation, and make sort-of oriental, gothic indie-pop presence work for them. -...

Re: Name 1 good song from a band you hate!

I famously rate KoRn as my least favourite band ever — I wish I could like them but I cannot win a war with my own ears — but even I thought that they played very strongly indeed on MTV-Unplugged in 2007, and that their cover of “Creep” was actually outstanding. It was definitely a song which suited...

Re: Thoughts On Metallica

I remember Alice in Chains ripped off Dazed and Confused with Hate to Feel. Realizing that was one of my first Alice in Chains memories. Naw, Alice didn't "rip-off" D&C for Hate to Feel. The chord progression is borrowed, but the similarities go no further -- different chorus, structure, V.Ms, styl...

Re: Smells Like Teen Spirit has over 1 Billion views

In a year and a half here, I have scarcely expressed my feelings for Smells Like Teen Spirit. It holds an important place in my heart, and the catharsis that both Nirvana and Butch Vig captured in equal measures definitely digs deep with one’s own teenage alienation, which I suppose is how many of u...

Re: Lame things bands do on stage...pet peeves

Bring their political views into their performances :roll: -- Thankfully, few bands are so egotistical and entitled -- but there's a massive difference between integrating one's opinions into their music; which is artistic and intelligent... and yelling about your opinions on stage, because that isn...

Re: What Was the Last Movie You Watched?

The Deer Hunter, from 1978. It is strange, seeing as I'm very interested in the Vietnam War I should in theory have seen it a thousand times by now, yet this was the first time I ever got around to watching it. I enjoyed it to a considerable extent. It is a profound epic with a detailed realism of b...

Re: Bush

Bush have a new album out. It is called The Kingdom. — Having heard a few tracks from it, I must say that I am rather agnostic about it. It is Heavy, which I like, although it is a strange record. but There were solid riffs throughout, but Bullet Holes left a lot to be desired that was either mispla...

Re: why do grungers hate new wave?

I would say it depends, "new wave" kinda took on two seperate meanings: there's the earlier classic punk-influenced stuff like Devo, Blondie, Talking Heads, B-52s, Japan, Suicide, Oingo Boingo, etc , which was meant to be an experimental and anti-corporate, but accessible and alternative form of 60...

Re: Punk or Metal

I am not really into Metal apart from the odd album here and there (a few early Metallica, some (shock) Korn and shit) I can tell that you are ‘not really into metal’ because if you were, you would not have named Korn as a flipping metal band...! — — Metal for me. Metal was what made me a definite ...

Re: Accent challenge. Now New & Improved!

Most of the posts on here are about British accents. There is no such thing, we have hundreds of different accents. -- One of my talents is impersonating accents. I know 53 of them. I enjoy performing them to my mates now and then, but when you get people you know come up to you asking "do a Welsh a...
