Dear QC Forum Folks-

I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks for leading me to a new frame of mind, nay, state of mind.  For the past couple of years I have stymied in corporate culture cookie cutter music, not feeling at all in sync with what was playing on the radio.  Sure, there was a good song here and there, and I would listen to it with great endeavor, but I felt something was always missing.  As I stumbled on to the Questionable Content website, and trolled through the forums briefly, I thought to myself that I may have found a new plateau of my musically inclined evolution.  And indeed I did, from the first post I put up to reading others like it, I have found hundreds of bits of data pleasing to my ear and something to soothe the mind of the days worries.  For this im truly thankful.
In other words, thanks for the musical suggestions, you guys "rawk!"
-Whitehatblackshoes man.

I'd thank you for the kind words, but I'm an insecure asshole and probably didn't even help you in the first place.

Same thing here.

Only substitute "Questionable Content" with "drugs".

But QC did introduce me to Indie music, and I've developed quite a liking for it.

SO THANK YOU! YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!

Sob, group hug.

And believe me, being a music snob is even more satisfying than it's hyped up to be!

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

At least The Killers had about  6months of unadultered worship before the backlash hit...pity the Bravery, they only lasted one song!

And, (back on topic) - awwwwwwwwww, that's really cute!
Try crack next.

I never even got to hear the Bravery before word got out that I was supposed to hate them. So I'm kind of hoping their song is good.

To be fair, the single's actually pretty good.
 My reasons for disliking them are the fact that they try SO HARD to  be like the Faint, only with Julian Casablances style 'can't be arsed' vocals, and their style is entirely derivative of other bands who do it better, so I see no point in their existence.
Also, they pretty much justified their band for the sake of getting groupies, and look like every wannabe NY hipster, so yeah.

Edit: WHoooaaaa...my inner music snob just struck out again, I do apologise, I shall try and control it a little better next time, take the pills and all.

I'm such a music snob that I actually dislike almost all indie rock. Except, like, British Sea Power, and Tann-Hauser Gate, who are my token 'hah, more indier than thou even though I don't like indie' band.

...Noooooo, I gave away my 'hah, more indier than thou even though I don't like indie' band!!!

I can't help it, I am an indie fuck at heart...
And I love BSP unconditionally. They covered a track by Mum on their new single for the B-side, which makes them even bigger gods in my eyes.

I'm so indie I have all your SOULS on vinyl. They're in my SOUL BAG. And they look like pickles.

But yeah, I'm with KharBevNor. Is Cake indie? That's probably the closest thing to Indie that I like.

Not knowing what the bravery look like, I downloaded the first song i saw which was "Honest Mistake".  My first impression as during the beginning was "mmm, Knight Rider."  then I started to listen to it.  It was then I began to enjoy the song.  For a good comparision I listened to The Faint "Agenda Suicide".  Yeah they were pretty similiar except the vocals for The bravery were deeper...perhaps those were wrong songs to compare?

Funny thing is, same thing happened to me.  Only real difference is it was Qc that began the change, it merely accelerated it.

Yeah, I know the feeling. I don't post much, but I shall add my thanks to all the hipsters(!) on the boards. Once I started paying attention, this whole new musical strata opened up, and some of my favourite cds of the last few months have been due to stuff I've picked up here - the Weakerthans, the Unicorns, Straylight Run etc...

Speaking of which, I actually like the Bravery :) I was there when it was it was the 'We Love The Bravery' part, and now it's transmogrified into 'We Are Subtly Mocking The Bravery' and I have no doubt that it will soon into the derisive 'They're Just Totally Derivative And Have No Real Talent' stage :)

They were fun live, and the album is actually pretty good. Not as good as Bloc Party or Bright Eyes in terms of album-of-ther-yearness though...

Yah, I have to admit I'm a bit of a music snob too. But if you don't point out that Linkin Park IS NOT the best band in the world to idiots, than who will?  But seriously, I like The Bravery's single, regardless of what old band it sounds like. It makes me move my booty.

Sing it.
