My brother has the album with "Tubthumping" on it, and I really don't mind it.

i see all their old ceedees in used ceedee places around here, havent actually listened to any of it though...
and Tubthumper is the title track of the ceedee Tubthumper.

Its weird because I have a compilation from AK Press (anarchy bookline) with chumbawamba on it.

They were originally something stupid like 'Anarcho-pop' or something.

They're still pretty anarcho, or at least claim to be. From what I hear 'Tubthumping' was a joke that people ended up taking seriously, but their move to a major label killed off any cred they had in the punk scene, although I hear they're still pretty popular in activist circles. They're playing a benefit gig at the autonomous social centre I'm a member of so I'll get to see what they're like these days soon enough. Oh well, at least Rob Newman's on before them, he's supposed to be great.

I regret nothing! Everything I've listened to so far has led me toward my eventual musical eden.

Doesn't mean I'm not ashamed at listening to certain bands though - too ashamed to mention them even now!

Ah, that's just it--none of the music I ever listened to /led/ to me what I listen to now.

It was more, my friends force-feeding me their music(pretty bad, seeing as my friends are all into death-metal or J-pop), and then one day, Age showed me The Postal Service. =nods=

Actually I regret nothing. I used to listen to very, very bad stuff, but itīs funny now, I donīt have bad feelings about this. For example, there were classics like GunsīnīRoses, Bon Jovi, Blind Guardian and Dimmu Borgir. I also really was into all this really ridiculous goth metal stuff like Theatre Of Tragedy and all of their clones. But well, thatīs just a question of personal development.

Yeah, I suppose I can't really regret anything.
It was when I was young and naive.
And as all of you have said, its sort of like fate...
you listen to something that leads you to listen to something else
and it fine tunes your musical tastes and gives you what you have now,
the best musical taste and ceedee collection in existance.

Until Coldplay and Radiohead, I was into Nu-Metal. I still love System of a Down, but I don't like Coldplay or the other Nu-Metal bands anymore. XP

And to think, this must have happened in the span of a year or two. I'm only 14, you know.

System are actually rather exceptional for nu-metal. I don't think I'd class them with most other nu-metal acts. Indeed, they're not really nu-metal. I still have a soft-spot for them myself.

No picture sigs on this forum btw.

Rammstein, Sum 41, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, Puddle of Mudd, *cough*goodcharlotte*cough*. I am very ashamed of my musical past. Then again, this was all through 5th and 7th grade. Then one day I just popped in some nu-metal song, and I thought "Jesus, this song sucks donkey balls." So I stopped listening to them.

Whoa... only Dallas is the freaky emokid... Wade = teh h4x on the guitar, and George = win...



For me... no regrets. Sure, there's music I don't listen to anymore, but why bother regretting it? Life's to short to spend time whining about your past tastes...

Hell, I'll still whip out the My Chemical Romance for songs like Headfirst For Halos (I find it exceptionally hilarious)...

(And, for the record, I'm working on my over-use of the ellipsis (...) )

And since everyone is expressing themselves on SOAD lately, System is awesome (particularily Toxicity. It's fun)

chumbawumba, if  i'm not mistaken, is comprised of former member(s) of crass, who definitely fit the "anarchist" label. it should also be noted that crass and chumbawumba sound about as similar as the cure and dinosaur jr.s versions of "just like heaven."
i still consider chumbawumba to be legitimate, considering they put out a live album with noam chomsky on the second cd.  also (although this is totally hearsay from my standpoint) i heard when they were on the interview circuit of national tv late night shows, they were encouraging watchers/listeners to shoplift the cd rather than give the money to The Man.
none of this, by the way, discounts the fact that "Tubthumping" was responsible for my last radio alarm clock's demise - i threw it against the wall in revulsion after hearing that stupid song EVERY MORNING AT SEVEN AM FOR A MONTH STRAIGHT.

i'm seeing conflicting crap on the internet about it. apparently that loser punk ex boyfriend of mine didn't know everything after all.  either people from crass are in chumbawumba, or the two bands combined on a side project, or chumbawumba was just heavily influenced by the crass.  i can't sift through the google crap to get to the truth of the matter, and i don't really care at this point in my work day.

uhh...so a band i hate admitting i used to listen to...
i'm going to go with T'Pau on this one.  there was some really enormously bad catchy music in the 80s.
i also had a friend who suckered me into listening to her nitty gritty dirt band cassette tape, but i knew that was crap straight off.  "fishin' in the dark" made my ears bleed.

Conflict may have been the band I am thinking of.  A not so quick search does.  I am calling it good at that, I can't be bothered to go through the slough of information to look up Chumbawumba.

When I was a little kid I'd get on table top in restraunts and sing and dance to Tina Turner and Michael Jackson.

I'm pretty certain Chumbawamba aren't ex-Crass, I've never heard it mentioned anyway and I'm sure it'd have come up somewhere down the line. I know some people who're friends with them (maybe one used to sing for them?), I'll maybe ask next time I see them if I remember.

I useda listen to Voodoo Glow Skulls too. I think when I saw them at Ska Summit, it really snapped that they blew whale cock (also known as dork).

Bands I regret: The Offspring (they were my first band, in 3rd to 5th grade, so sue me.), Static-X, Slipknot, Bad Religion, and The Casualties (I was a little punk and metal whore. Bad punk and metal.)

BAD RELIGION ARE AMAZING!!
What are you talking about?!

That is a band who have remained consistently good for longer than I've been alive.
Sure, they had started to wane around the time of 'new america' but then they said 'what the fuck is wrong with us?' and got right back into what they were originally doing.
It's fanstastic...
imagine having Greg Graffin as your father!
COME ON PEOPLE!!!

And yeah, I don't really think Crass have anything to do with Chumbwamba, though that would be great I think.
I love Crass as well.

Ok, I'll admit that "American Jesus" is a bad-ass song. And there are a few But most of their stuff is too... similar to itself for me. We played a song of theirs in my cover band i was in in 6th grade (we also did up a mean "Iron Man" and a bitchin' version of "Higher Ground"). Can't remember the song's name though.

Just going back a bit, Chumbawumba were famous for throwing a bucket of water (I think it was water) over John Prescott at the Brit Awards. This may or may not have been the same Brit Awards that Jarvis Cocker mooned Michael Jackson at. I can't quite remember. I'm not sure if there was some relation between Chumbawumba and the KLF (who notoriously filmed themselves burning a million pounds) or if it was just that they were both "anarchists" that has them connected together in my mind. Gotta love Jarvis though.

Oh, it might be because the KLF killed a sheep at the 1992 Brit Awards (or had dead sheep with them - again I don't quite remember).

I have two words that make all you regrets seem like nothing.

Kidz Bop.


Those albums are the reason why the hole in the ozone layer keeps getting bigger. They're just not natural.

My mother bought a ripoff of one of those with 'party songs.' It had a ten minute version of The Chicken Dance on it. Whiny little kids singing the exact same thing for TEN MINUTES.


Back to the subject at hand:

In the sixth grade, I bought a Nelly Frutado ( is that how it's spelled?) CD because I heard a popular kid (I think her name was Cece) talking about how cool it was.

I was a very sad little 6th grader.

Prozzak, The Moffats, Fatboy Slim.

I was introduced to Green Day, System of a Down, and Bad Religion all by the same guy. He called them "intro-punk." It was a time when the only exposure I had to "music" was what I heard on the radio. If it weren't for those three bands I'd be buying tripe like Nickelback, Creed, or Staind right about now.  Everyone here can bash 'em as much as they like, I still listen to them a lot, and they changed the music world for me even if my taste has generally changed a LOT since then.
