  1. Not everything is a conspiracy. CD's are just more portable and have better sound quality. I don't think there's much more to it than that.
  2. Am I the only one who thinks this would be really cool? ....Probably.
  3. I think I understand what you mean. It won't be in the mainstream when it comes to radio exposure, but it will still be popular enough to sell. Unless that isn't what you mean?
  4. Well even though it's not apparent in some areas, country is the most popular form of music, at least saleswise.
  5. Point taken BF. I shall rethink my... thinking.
  6. I was just listening to "Devils and Dust" by Bruce Springsteen. What are other good acoustic rock songs/albums?
  7. I think I actually prefer Floyd's pre-DSOTM stuff. My favorite is probably Meddle (mainly because Echoes is one of the greatest songs ever) but A Saucerful of Secrets and Piper at the Gates of Dawn are great too. Ummagumma is just weird.
  8. I don't like rap, and greatly prefer rock and roll. Of course, it's all subjective, because the crowd that does prefer rap generally does not like rock and roll. The only difference is, I'm always right. But seriously, I think the main thing that I dislike about rap is the lack of melody. I like my singers to sing, the music to be played by musicians, and the beat to be made by a drummer, not a machine. The one exception to my dislike is Run-D.M.C. They rock.
  9. This is the only picture of me that I like. Me as Alice Cooper last Halloween. (Yeah I still dressed up for Halloween even though I'm a sophomore in high school. It's fun!)
  10. You make a good point. Alice Cooper does rock.
  11. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the whole purpose of punk rock to be simple and either enjoyable or pissed off? It isn't meant to be analyzed! So no, I don't think the Sex Pistols killed punk rock, but this thread might be doing it. I think I'm going to go listen to the Dead Kennedys and weep.
  12. Today in history we discussed protest and political rock songs. The two songs we listened to in class were: "Chicago"- Graham Nash "Eve of Destruction"- Barry McGuire Some other great political/protest songs I can think of are: "Fortunate Son"- Creedence Clearwater Revival "Gimme Shelter"- The Rolling Stones Many Bob Dylan songs (Blowin' In The Wind, Hurricane) Many Neil Young songs(Southern Man, Ohio)
  13. A few that I don't think have been mentioned that are worth a listen: "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"- Clapton w/ Beatles "Tales of Brave Ulysses"- Cream (also Clapton, of course) "Sweet Child O' Mine"- Guns N' Roses (Slash) "Orion"- Metallica Anything from Electric Ladyland (or Hendrix period, but I love this album so much) "Thunderstruck"- AC/DC (Angus Young) "In My Time of Dying"- Led Zeppelin (Page)
  14. What songs just make you start rocking out like crazy until your neck hurts? Some that do it for me: "Paradise City" by Guns N' Roses "Master of Puppets" by Metallica "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne "Sliver" by Nirvana "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen
  15. At the risk of being called insane, or a druggie (insanity is a possibility, I am not a druggie), I am going to admit that I enjoy listening to Revolution 9. I don't know why, I just do. By the way, I've heard it backwards, and it does seem to tell the story of a car crash (no I don't think Paul is dead, but it is interesting to hear). On the other hand, I hate Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.
  16. Ok, so the image has always been important. That makes since, because the way the world sees a band would affect the type of music played. Still, it seems to me that it's bigger than ever now. It overshadows the music.
  17. To me it always just seemed like a very dramatic opening to a great album. It's just saying "Welcome to 'Billion Dollar Babies'. I'm Alice Cooper and I'll be your singer this evening."
  18. It seems now that the image of a musical artist is just as or more important than their sound. Now I know that image has played a part in commercial music for a while (ex. Nice guy Beatles and Bad Boy Stones), but it really seems like the image is a main priority now, and that this is one of the main things that is hurting music. The record companies decide who fits the image they are looking for, and then try to make that person sound as good as they can, and then pay the radio stations to play their song enough that people like the music because they don't hear anything else. At what point in music history did the transition from music for music change to music for image take place?
  19. Try "Room Full of Mirrors" by Jimi Hendrix for appearance v. reality.
  20. VERY nice Marc! How ironic: I'm wearing my "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberry" shirt as I write this post!
  21. Haha yes, The King could good too, except it may imply that I'm Elvis come back from Mars or the Burger King in Michigan or wherever he's supposed to be. And Jim Morrison is one of my idols, I love the Doors so much. Looks like I've already made a friend! Yay!
  22. Well most people just call me Tim, but i think I could get used to "Mr. Lizard, Sir".
  23. "Bleach" by Nirvana is the first one that comes to mind in 1989. Garth Brooks debut album is another one. (Whoa, Nirvana and Garth Brooks in the same post. How's that for diversity?)
  24. Fell In Love With A Girl- The White Stripes. Legovision!
