The List
« on: 26 Sep 2005, 23:02 »

The following is my List. You may post Lists of your own in similar format, but if you talk shit about my List I am going to delete your comments because disagreeing with an opinion posted on the internet wastes my time and yours. The rules are that each component of your List can only contain five bands, so make your opinions count. You may not list a band on more than one category. GO:

SOME BANDS THAT ARE GOOD
Hum
Daft Punk
The Arcade Fire
In Flames
Mogwai


SOME BANDS THAT ARE AWFUL
Coldplay
Keane
The Killers
The National
Wilderness

SOME BANDS THAT ARE VASTLY OVERRATED
Ted Leo & the Pharmacists
The Shins
Bloc Party
The White Stripes
The Microphones/Mount Eerie

SOME BANDS THAT I USED TO THINK WERE AWESOME BUT AM NOW SORT OF BURNED OUT ON
Radiohead
Sufjan Stevens
The Fiery Furnaces
(I could only think of three for this category, sorry)

You're absolutely right about disagreeing with people on the internet.  I'd love to meet you out for a drink some time and talk musical taste in person.  When will you be in Seattle next?

Alien ska bands are awesome, of course.
I often don't quite understand their lyrics since they speak languages I don't understand and the last alien ska band I saw live took a few of my vital organs, but they're still very good.

I could not agree more.

Also, Dream Theater and Liquid Tension Experiment are essentially the same band, except LTE has no vocals. I don't understand why LTE is awesome but DT is overrated.

Way to close your mind off.

I mean, it's fair if you just don't like hip hop, but I've seen way too many people say "Anything but country and rap", and that is the single worst sentence one can use to sum up their musical tastes.[/quote]

Way to close your mind off.


Maybe he just doesn't like rap? This is about personal tastes after all.

I don't really like rap. It's not even the rapping so much, although it can be, it's the arrangement and rhythms of the beats, the subject matter of some groups, etc. etc. I just don't find it meshes with me or appeals to me as a person. Maybe it's veiled racism or something, although tbh I doubt it.

I do quite like Goldie Lookin' Chain when I'm in the mood though, and of course Rare Form. This is probably, as I say, because I can just identify with them. Also, because Goldie Lookin' Chain are hilarious.

And that Star Wars rap, that is rather, what is it you young people say, diseasin'.

that's totally cool. i'm not going to say that everyone should listen to everything for the sake of saying "i'm open"; i just take offense when people write off an entire genre for seemingly invalid reasons. i suppose you don't even really need a valid reason to say that you dislike a genre, but it doesn't sit right with me when people don't, just because i love music, and i try to keep an open ear for everything.

i'm guilty though. i've mostly written off noise rock after listening to Wolf Eyes' Burned Mind. but, you know, if something comes along that's better, maybe i'll change my mind about the genre.

I dislike rap because it's mindlessly repetitive. Spoken vocals that don't even require pitch changes over computer-manufactured drum beats and sampling. I'm not subconsciously racist, I just don't think that constitutes quality music.

Unless you consider "Amish Paradise" and "Couch Potato" by Weird Al actual rap.

Hey! You just described The Books! :P

I understand your issues with rap/hip-hop, though.

I could say this, but it would bely the amount of industrial I listen to. One could make these criticisms about Laibach, but somehow I love Laibach. It has to do, more in my mind, with the use these kind of things are put to. An american dude in trainers rapping over funky beats doesn't cut it for me, but a gravelly-voiced slovenian pretty much speaking over heavy as fuck 909 loops, simple guitar and sample choirs and military marches somehow works perfectly, even though you could never claim that it is less repetitive, less cliche, whatever.

It all comes down to dancing, I think. Hip hop is, after all, pretty much dance music, and if I can't stomp, mosh, headbang or gothdance (tm) to something, I'd rather not hit the floor. Others of course would prefer to sit it out, no matter how many times Milan says "KOMERADE, KOMM TANZ MIT MIR!"
