What is your opinion about Evanescence?Watch
To be honest it doesn't matter whether you think they are credible or not or whether there new work is worse than their older work - the point is they can produce music that is interesting.
My list shouldn't act as the definative list for good American bands in the past 10 years (I'm sure I've missed a good few). I've not included any solo artists such as Evan Dando, Frank Black, Beck, Tom Waits, Ryan Adams, Jeff Buckley etc.
Also, 'rock' is not the 'be all and end all' of contemporary music - which I'm sure you realised. My list should now include artists such as De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, DJ Shadow, Indie Arie etc.
I would also point out that for every single one of these bands, there are approximately 50000 other bands that fit my earlier description perfectly.
I think you should also have included Sound Garden in the list (just listening to thier best of.. album again and it just never gets old).
You must admit that some of the bands that the states has produced have been shocking though.......e.g. Blink 182!!!
I cant really define punk but if you want a template then use The Clash, The Sex Pistols or if you are seriously desperate (and have no knowledge of the history of punk) Green Day.
You must surely agree that there has been a serious dilution of punk over the past 10 years. There are no real "punk" bands left, there are just pretty boys who whinge and whine about things not going their way.
PS - Sorry for the delay ( im in a beer garden on my lappy)
PSS - IT IS SOOOOO HOT!!!!!
ok, buddah wasnt great, but dude ranch and chechire cat were great!
i wouldnt say punk has disapeared over the last 10 years. There is still many bands around if u wanna find them. On the other hand i kinda agree, there is nothing liek the clash, sex pistols etc, but i dont really want that. punk has evolved. now there are many different types. i would clasify blink as pop-punk. so comparing blink to the sex pistols is stupid. Agreed there is a void left by those bands, but the audience isnt really there any more. Its expanded out into pop punk, ska punk, punk rock, etc etc etc.
How was Grand Caneria??
Anyone know what the weather is like in Sweeden (im off their next week and really hope I don't leave the sun and get the rain)??
20 mins ago I paid £1.60 for a bottle. I have just paid £1.80!!!!
I really think its a conspiracy, how can they justify putting the price of a bottle up when its this hot??? Doesn't alcohol dehydrate you??? Surely this is very wrong!!!!
I I base my intense dislike of them on the fact they seem to insist that they are something that they are not! I really hate it when pretentious (hope I spelled it right) rich kids from the states try and pass themselves off as a "punk band"
thats te kind of music i like- ska punk!
I really don't find ska very interesting at all but providing you don't go all fascist on me and force me to listen to it, I will tolerate your taste (I would not do this if you liked some genres).
I love music from musicals etc...tis always fun to sing raucously along with (Miss Saigon be very good in my opinion, then there's things like War of the Words that have good music/instrumentals...nice and dramatic)
Anyway...not entirely sure the point of this post but meh!
Don't **** off dance music too much.
