  1. I've made almost 80 posts and I still feel like I don't know anyone here... Are there any country music fans here, because it seems like the main discussions center around rock and roll only?

  2. Hard to say, blues based hard rock was around before the bands mentioned (Cream, Hendrix, etc) and while they might not be metal, they certainly laid the foundation. Led Zeppelin hates the term "heavy metal" and refuses to be put into that category. Steppenwolf invented the term, but I've never considered them metal. Black Sabbath was definitely a true metal band, but were they the first? If I had to choose I'd go with Sabbath.

  3. And finally, the two Beatles ones mentioned - Revolution was not about 'Chinese Communism' (it just mentioned Chariman Mao.... doesn't quite add up to the same thing). And as far as I know the only actual news mentioned in A Day In The Life was the news based on the roiad survey in Blackburn which reported the number of holes in the road. Hardly a major political/cultural event. ;)

    Well I was recently playing a game of Trivial Pursuit and the question was "Which Beatles song was inspired by the Cummunist regime of China?" Answer: Revolution How dare you challenge they almighty Trivial Pursuit?!? :laughing:

  4. Yesterday's show was just revisting the main events up until now. Next week is a new show, and the previews make it look like Sayid will kill John Loc, but if that is what will happen they wouldn't have put it on the previews. If it actually IS what happens I will be as angry as a Michigan grad who just watched the Wolverines lose 47-0 to Ohio State. I use dumb analogys.

  5. I've been playing for about 5-6 years. I've been into Irish music all my life because my parents went to an Altan concert not long after I was born and got hooked. In fourth grade a group of people came to my school offering to teach instruments, and since I was in a classical music phase, I choose the violin. I loved the instrument, but got bored with the music, so I went back to my Irish roots. Now it has become a huge part of my life. It's incredibly fun, and it always gives me the feeling that I'm going back into ancient history, or I'm on the boat however many generations back my family immigrated to America.

  6. You're right SoulGirl, they're not "talentless". In fact when people ask me what made me decide to play the fiddle I respond "Because I can't sing". I still think the show is adding to the bad music of this unfortunate era, but some of them can belt out a tune.

  7. this sounds stupid, but Sympathy For The Devil by guns and roses... it covers SO many historical events (like the russian revoloution).

    If not Ohio by CSNY.

    Yes GNR did do SFTD but it was originally the Stones, and personally I like the original much better.

    Anyway, "For What It's Worth" by Buffalo Springfield is about the riots on Sunset Strip in the 60's and "Revolution" by The Beatles is about Chinese Communism.

  8. Since when does singing kareoke make you talented? I've been playing fiddle for 6 years (which, not to sound cocky or anything, takes skill) and have never been on national TV. What a crazy, mixed-up world we live in.

  9. A band I think is highly overrated today is Linkin Park. I think it's a generational thing...I am not an angst-ridden teenager and never was, really, so I can't relate. I haven't heard a lot by them, granted, but what I have heard just sounds whiny/screamy/depressing to me.

    Of all time.....I don't know. I think it's a tie between Pink Floyd and AC/DC. For PF, I think their music is an acquired taste that I haven't acquired. I do like some of their songs, but I don't get excited over them.

    I AM an angst-ridden teenager and I think Linkin Park sucks.

    In response to The Doors being overrated: perhaps they weren't the best musicians ever, but the poetry of Jim Morrison's lyrics (especially their lesser known songs) is what does it for me. :thumbsup:

  10. I find Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana are terribly overrated. Some of its okay but I find many of their songs reduntant, dry and cliched. No offense, I used to like the first two (never liked Nirvana), but after finding my own nitch in music, they just kinda died out for me.

    Wow. Just wow. Oh well that's your views, I'll respect them. I'm just an opinionated teenager after all, no reason you should like what I like. ANYWAY I've always thought synth rock bands like Styx and Kansas were overrated. I also think Greenday is EXTREMELY overrated.
