  1. Interesting... well, after all Led were an amazing band... What's somewhat worrying is that a repetative guitarist like Slash actually made it to second place while more innovative guitarists like Jeff Beck, Mark Knopfler and Stevie Ray Vaughn were no were to be seen.
  2. So many to mention... The usual stuff like Simple Plan, Blink 182, Limp Bizkit, Good Charlotte, Disturbed, Korn, Slipknot, Black Eyed Peas, HIM, James Blunt (even though "he" isn't a band), your standard boy/girl band, Coldplay, all R 'n B and most of the stuff thats shown on MTV... etc etc Actual rock bands I think are somewhat overrated - although I like their stuff - are Velvet Revolver, Foo Fighters, Audioslave, Radiohead...
  3. If you could put together a band made up of musicians from any time period and genre, who would you choose and why? I'll start: Lyrics and Vocals: Jim Morrison (The Doors) - with Syd Barrett (Pink Floyd) a very close second. Although I personally consider Barrett to be one of the the best lyricists of all time, Morrison, being an excellent frontman (and interesting poet), takes first place. Lead Guitar: Robert Fripp (King Crimson) - A mad, mad, mad person with equally insane guitar playing and composing skills Rhythmn Guitar 1: Omar Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta) - As insane as
  4. In my case it was Bon Jovi (Always) and to a certain extent, the Fugees (Ready or Not). Those two songs were my first two favourites Of course, since my dad and uncle are quite the Dire Straits and Chris Rea fans, I got a rather large dose of both - I grew up listening to Money for Nothing and Auberge and for quite a long time I was under the impression that Rea was the Dire Straits vocalist...
  5. Indeed. Weird Revolution and Locust Abortion Technician are much better albums though. As far as I know the band was well known for their outrageous live performances... Besides the above mentioned bands... Syd Barrett, Television and The Lounge Lizards
  6. Enjoying myself a great deal here too. Don't worry about offending me das - I assure you i'm taking it all in good humour. Unfortunately, i'm rather busy myself - i've a bunch university work to catch up with, so its probably you that'll be making the chicken noises first
  7. Beautiful response I'll be back later
  8. If its of any consolation, I didn't mention any albums by the Stones or the Dead
  9. Great thread m8 (in no particular order) 60's: Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde Frank Zappa - Freak Out The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground & Nico The Doors - The Doors Pink Floyd - The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced? Captain Beefheart - Trout Mask Replica Frank Zappa - Uncle Meat Jefferson Airplane - Volunteers King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King Red Crayola - Parable Of Arable Land 70's: Faust - Faust Robert Wyatt - Rock Bottom Pere Ubu - Modern Dance Soft Machine - 3 Syd Barrett - Barrett
  10. Ah sorry... Velvet Underground and Nico First album released by VU. Released in '67. Had the famous banana design by Andy Warhol on its cover. Themes: anguish, moral misery, musical theatre, ruin and desolation, solitude and paranoia, and the beauty of evil. One can find elements of electronic avant-garde, oriental and african drum beats. The album contains tracks like: Sunday Morning, Heroin, Femme Fatale, the sadomasochist Venus in Furs, All Tomorrow' s Parties, I' ll Be Your Mirror, Waiting For My Man, Black Angel' s Death Song, Run Run Run and There She Goes. Rock B
  11. I see that theres a massive support for the beatles here... but nevermind I'm here to debate, and I don't mind being proved wrong. My first question is, what did The Beatles influence? Actually I was apologising for simply making a statement without giving any information to back up my claim, which I will try to do now. I sincerely hope I won't offend anyone too much - its a rather harsh critique of the band. I'll start off with a basic chronology of the years 1962 through 1970. Comparing what was happening in the political world and the music world with what the beatles were
  12. Regarding the Dylan/Lennon comparison, in my opinon Dylan made the better music. By no means was I hinting that Dylans legend had nothing to do with his political activism... especially the fact that he was already up and about protesting and releasing political albums in 1962 while the Beatles had only just released their first work, a 45 called "Love me Do". Your claim that the Beatles were possibly the most highly influential band is something I strongly disagree with. (If anything that award should go to the Velvet Underground). I'll get back to you as soon as I can with a reasonabl
  13. I'd like to nominate two of my favourites: Robert Wyatt - Rock Bottom The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground and Nico
  14. Well, thats true. Don't get me wrong here, i'm something of a Lennon fan myself. The point i'm trying to raise here is simple. Lets take James Dean and Marlon Brando as examples. Would James Dean have been remembered as well as he is today had he not died at such a young age? Would we be talking about Brando had he died young instead? Granted, Lennon was already highly successful when he died, however I believe it was his involvement with The Beatles (a highly overrated yet successful band) and his political activism rather than his music that made him famous. I don't believe he'd have m
  15. Would he have gained such a status had he been alive today? Lennon (although a good musician and lyricist) is a great example of the hero-creation myths that our society is prone to. He wasn't a martyr or a hero, it wasn't an assassination but a simple murder, pointless violence by a nobody.
