  2. Haha... this thread makes me laugh. A few notes:

    1) Blink 182, Sum 41, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, etc. are NOT talented. Those of them that write their own stuff use totally cookie-cutter riffs and lyrics... it doesn't take talent to write an unoriginal song.

    2) Whoever said "Tool, Sum 41, (etc) and everything else on the radio" - Tool gets played on the radio like... once a month, if that. What the [bleep]?

    Okay, moving on. The bands I hate the most. Well, I try not to dwell on bands I don't like, but there are two in particular that I just can't get over. They would be:

    Godsmack (for copying their name directly from Alice in Chains (ever heard the song "God Smack"? And I love how they denied it was from that until Layne Staley died and then they were like "Yeah actually it was from that song") and for copying their sun logo from the one Layne Staley drew, and for trying to sound like Alice in Chains (but failing cause they SUCK, and cause no one can sing like Layne Staley), and for adding insult to injury by putting out an acoustic EP, kind of like (you guessed it) Alice in Chains. Godsmack, please die.)


    Creed (I don't think I even need to explain this one.)

    Oh, and also all Christian rock. It doesn't work.

    Now, I also want to say Offspring... but I can't. I really do love Offspring, their first 4 albums were amazing, and even Americana wasn't so bad. But my god.... Conspiracy of One and Splinter are some of the worst pieces of crap I've ever heard. So for that, Offspring makes my hate list. Because they were so good, but they sold out, and now they suck.

  3. Tool's my favorite band ever, and APC's up there on the list too. I disagree with TwistedNerve, I really don't think APC sounds like Tool. The only thing that they have in common is Maynard.

    Unfortunately I've only seen Tool twice and APC once, but my god, those were the best 3 nights of my life. I love the contrast in how Maynard acts onstage with Tool and how he acts with APC. He's so talkative with APC! I love it!

    Anyway... favorite songs? How can I choose? Neither band has put out a song that I don't love.

    For Tool:

    Cold and Ugly


    4 Degrees



    Forty-Six & 2



    The Patient



    for APC:

    3 Libras



    The Noose



  4. Oh good, someone put Layne Staley on the list.

    I don't know about best ever, because it's mostly just opinion, and also I don't listen to music from a lot of different time periods, mostly just the early 90s.

    But, my favorites:

    Maynard James Keenan

    Layne Staley

    Chris Cornell

    Daniel Johns

    Billy Corgan (I know, he's so nasal/whiny, but I really like how his voice works with his music)

  5. Alice in Chains are definately not appreciated enough. They're by far my favorite band (except Tool) and I hate the way everyone labels them as just another grunge band from Seattle, and completely disregards all the talent Layne Staley had just because he had a drug problem.

    My favorite songs are: Bleed the Freak, Got Me Wrong, Sickman, Angry Chair, Don't Follow, Brush Away, God Am, and Over Now

  6. I'm going with 1992. There was a whole lot of good music coming out then:

    - "Opiate" by Tool

    - "Dirt" by Alice in Chains

    - "Lull" by Smashing Pumpkins

    - "Ignition" by The Offspring

    - "SOMMS EP" by Soundgarden

    - "Insesticide" by Nirvana

    - "Rage Against the Machine" by Rage Against the Machine

    - "Core" by Stone Temple Pilots

    - "Piece of Cake" by Mudhoney

    - "Drill EP" by Radiohead

    - "Broken" and "Fixed" by Nine Inch Nails

    I'm sure I missed some, too.
