Silverchair is post grunge... They were the third wave of grungers.

well, by past I mean, they aren't grunge at all anymore, but sort of were for their first couple albums, so in the past they were grunge

Wow talk about not giving Silverchair the credit they diserve. I mean yes frogstomp and freakshow were great, and so was neon ballroom. Diorama is a great album though it isn't grunge it's really good. I mean jesus they're evolving as musicians and they get beeter each album, cut them some slack. Daniel Johns is a genius, I'd like to see you guys write music like he does... The composer said that he hasn't seen anyone like him since he worked with brian wilson. So blah, you don't know good music.

Who said it isn't good music? Speedball doesn't like it.. But he didn't say it's bad music.

if I had a band I wouldn'd mind being considered as a Nirvana rip-off, I mean when you listen to music you are always influenced by the bands you mostly listen to so I guess it is pretty normal to try to have the same style and sound like the bands you love.

Silverchair's new video for their forthcoming new album is out now on their official website. It's called Straight Line, I like the song eventhough I'm quite disappointed by Silverchair, it's like they've lost the rage they used to have...

yeah Diorama was like a slap in my face, i was like 'what the fuck is that piece of shit?' lol.
I think the band radically changed when Daniel started going out with Natalie Umbruglia (Am I spelling it right?)...it's like they used to sing their rage about how fucked up the world really is and since Diorama they've been developing a sort of 'the world is beautiful so let's sing about it' attitude...that sucks...

anyway, I still like them in a way and I'm quite eager to see them live this year (they'll probably come to London this year!!).
