I like 70's and 80's rock, mostly because of the writing. I write songs as a hobby, and can appreciate what makes a good song. The songs these days aren't that good. They don't write 'em like that anymore...

My favorite bands are: Led Zeppelin, Mötley Crüe, Metallica, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. RHCP is one of the few modern bands I listen to. Others include Saliva, Rob Zombie, and a perfect circle.

And if you wanna hear some really good modern song writing, pick up a perfect circle's CD Thirteenth Step. They have some good songs. They also have a anti-war CD called eMOTIVE, with strictly covers. They have an UNBELIEVABLE cover of John Lennon's Imagine.

Listen to Industrial Revolution by Immortal Technique or The Ugly Truth by Louis Logic and then tell rap sucks.

It's just ignorant to knock on a total genre.

(BTW, as you might have guessed I only listen to rap basically)


yeah, the old rap actually has some thought and sense into it, and it really good.

Right on, that's definitely one of my favourite albums. My favourite Allman songs are "Whipping Post", and "Melissa" from Eat a Peach. "Jessica" is probably the best instrumental of all time too, I nearly faint when the guitar kicks in at about the 3:40 mark. I also share the same birthday as Duane, rest his soul! Their comeback work was surprisingly good, "No One To Run With" especially.

It really is that bad. The only good mainstream artist right now is Nas, his newest double album Street's Disciple is amazing. Goleafsgo mentioned Eminem, and he had some creative stuff in the past but his latest album is absolutely terrible. Other artists that were underground and turned mainstream like Talib Kweli, The Roots, and Common Sense are good too.
DUKE wrote:Cheesehead, I'm thinking of trying out one of these artists. Which one should I start with? I don't listen to a lot of rap, but have some of the older classics (EZ,DMC,NWA etc.) I wouldn't mind hearing some of what you mentioned here.

If you haven't listened to much rap, you definitely do not have to delve as deep as Immortal Technique or Louis Logic. Those guys are only if you've heard all the old classics and are desperate for new stuff. Listen to "What They Do" and "The Next Movement" by The Roots then report back! The Roots are my personal favourite, and the only hip-hop band that plays their own instruments.

I agree Eminems new album wasnt that good, but Curtains Down is just a wicked song. Its the last one on the album, and its awesome. I also like Toy soldiers becuase i really like that whole Eminem Ja Rule mess. The rest is weak. And yah, i mostly like Eminem for his past songs, "Till I Collapse" and "Go To Sleep" being some of my favs.

Music is such a huge part of our lives. I don't think I could live without it. I'm one of those people that when I listen to something, I just can't listen to it if you know what I mean. No, I don't jump up and get my groove on, but if it's good, then the foot starts stomping, or the hands start clapping, the guitar gets it work cut out of it, the airways start singing, and my soul can feel it from head to toe. That's when I know what I like! ;-D

And reading everybody's other posts, I'm pretty happy. A lot of those bands you all mentioned I've never heard of. Which is cool, because then I know there's that much more decent music out there that I haven't heard yet. :-)

But, the one band, that with every song, makes me feel that way, no matter when or where I hear it is, AC/DC. :-) Long live Angus, Malcolm, Brian, Cliff, and Phil. And let's never forget, long live Bon.

If you've never heard Muswell Hillbilies, do yourself a favor and check it out. It's one of the most underrated albums I can think of, and it can appeal to so many different musical tastes.


I definitely agree there - that album is fantasic. ;-D

DUKE wrote:Currently in my rotation, I have Smashing Pumpkins "Siamese Dream", Blind Melon "Nico", Elliott Smith "Figure 8", Bright Eyes "Fevers and Mirrors", Pavement "Slanted & Enchanted", and Violent Femmes "self titled" (another one of the most fun albums). Ok,.....I could go on but realized that this is starting to rival War and Peace :-°


Lot's of good stuff in there. Smashing Pumpkins are the band that got me interested in music more than ten years ago. Blind Melon is underrated - very good stuff. Elliott Smith has been heavy in my rotation since... probably "Either Or", which is still my favorite Smith album. Bright Eyes is another good band - I was a little late getting into 'em, as "Lifted" was the first I'd heard of 'em, but have enjoyed Oberst's other stuff too. I went to Best-Buy earlier last week to pick up "I'm Wide Awake", but it was sold out. ...it's good to see some people are listening to their stuff - although it sucked having to go back another time for it. Still a little nervous to 'deaf-buy' "Digital Ash". Pavement and Violent Femmes = ;-D .

My rotation for the moment looks a 'lil like this... Bright Eyes "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning", The Libertines "Up the Bracket", Maktub "Khronos", Modest Mouse "The Moon & Antarctica", Matthew Sweet "Girlfriend", Paul Weller "Wild Wood", and Whiskeytown "Pneumonia". Also a lot of Morphine's "Yes" - 'Honey White' is just a damn catchy song, methinks.

Uh-huh, another Weller fan, methinks you just moved up a couple notches in Homeless' book.

Nice... "If I am guilty... so are you... it was March 4th 1982..." :-b ;-D




And... I guess I'll have to pick up Digital Ash. Companion piece and all that. Got Wide Awake yesterday. Most excellent.

Well, I really liked your post up until that point. There are only TWO bands that make me turn the radio station when I hear them come on. Those two bands are: AC/DC, and Rush.

I hate them both, and pretty much for the same reason, the vocalist. So obnoxious, both of them. Geddy Lee is way to high pitched to be a man, and whoever the lead singer for AC/DC is(sorry to sound arrogant, but it slipped my mind) is just to high pitched and raspy.

I respect both bands tremendously. They influence many people, and are great musicians. But I personally don't like them.

Uh oh...you probably angered a few people on that one - especially most of the Canucks. I do agree that most people either love or hate Rush, but I love them. I also know the reason most people don't like them is because of the vocals. But you can't deny that the music/percussion is some of the best stuff that's ever been done.

If you think about it, Geddy's really not all that different than a lot of vocalists. How many singers have bass voices? Every time I think about deep voice singers I think of Barry White and that dude from the Crash Test Dummies. :-)

Anyway, there sure as heck aren't as many of them as tenor voices. Almost all the hair band metal guys had high voices. Vince Neil was talked about in another thread. His voice is pretty high and shrill sounding for the most part, and he's cool...but Geddy is gay? :-?

I just never liked that argument, so I wanted to chime in.

From the Pavement song Stereo...
What about the voice of Geddy Lee?

How did it get so high?

I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy.

(I know him and he does.)

And you're my fact-checking cuz'.
