Title: If I had a {insert adjective} band:
Post by: 3Z3VH on 30 Aug 2007, 00:19
Just post a one-line comment about what you would do if you were a certain type of band/group (Examples below).

If I had a popular band, I would make a super-experimental (read: crap) album with the rest of the band, and 'leak' it on the internet as if it were the upcoming real release.

If I led a classical orchestra, I would demand that one random individual in the orchestra stand up and sit back down for no reason at all, just to confuse the audience.

If I were in an emo band, I'd whine about how much my life sucks in my songs, but when MTV interviews me, I'd never for a second shut up about how awesome I am.

If I was Rob Marton, I'd conquer my illness and reform Discordance Axis.

If i was in a heavy death-metal-core band i would get an ass load of satanic body mutilations, like shit that would scare little kids if you were to walk past them on the street. We'd have naked midgets suck off animals at our concerts and eat babies on stage. I'd end my month of fame when when i visit the pope and kill him. I'd hang myself in prison after writing a few books.

we'd be called.. Gox Pesus!

If I was emo, I'd kill myself for confusing "emo" for "complete crap".

If I was in an orchestra, I would make fun of the violins for thinking they are better than everybody else.

If I were Low I'd tell Alan Sparhawk to keep smokin' weed and making more records like Curtain Hits the Cast and Secret Name.

If I were Mastodon I'd record a cover of Merle Haggard tunes.

If I were Metallica I'd fire Lars and start drinkin' again.

If I was a death metal band I'd made all the songs are puppies and kittens. Maybe add some rainbows in there too.

If I was the frontman of an old timey burlesque/night club band, I'd book us to play at bar mitzvahs, and hotel lobbies.

If I was in a rock n roll band, I'd work really hard to write interesting and engaging songs, and play them to audiences with much enthusiasm. Also I would attempt to promote my band through the Internet and word-of-mouth, in the hopes of maybe being able to release an album that people would enjoy listening to.

If I were in The Decemberists, I would write a concept album about The Cat In The Hat (and his psychosomatic properties).

You joke, but one of my twisted musical ambitions is to be somehow involved in the creation of a death metal cover of the Cheers theme song.

I am completely serious about that.

If I had an EBM band I'd make a whole CD without using one single film sample, just to see if it can be done.

I was thinking Mika. Don't know about the hotness, but the falsetto is...whoa.

If I was guy in a glam rock band, I would make the girls simultaneously love me and make them jealous at the same time, for being prettier than they are. The guys would probably feel the same, too.

You mean you'd be Art Garfunkel.

Because Garfunkel is a total hottie in a boy band.

If I had a hip-hop group, I'd always rap about how hard I am, and how much the ghetto sucked, and then I'd show up to interviews wearing Cardigans, and khakis, and speak in a very articulate manner.

Have either of you heard of The Anti-Ben? Their cover of the Rug-Rats theme tune (entitled 'Under the Rug of Rats') is pure goddamn genius.

If I were a lot of bands, I'd change our fucking name to something less cheeky, ironic, and stupid.

If I were in a punk band, we'd be called Manty Lies, named after male panties and the Sonic Youth song 'Panty Lies.' We would be referred to as brrocore by the press and write songs about how women are dumb and being gay is awesome. Our first single would be called 'Suck My Left One (My Testicles, I Mean).'

If I were Sufjan Stevens, I'd get around to maybe finishing some new material before the end of the decade.

If I were Cat Power, I'd go back to drinking too much and actually playing my own songs in concert instead of dressing like a twat from the 80s and doing R&B/blues/country bullshit.

If I were in Radiohead, even I would have stop caring if I ever released another album.
