Personally, i think music can be a hotter and more bitterly contested subject than politics at times!!!

I think that it is such a personal and individual thing that what suits one person does not wash with another.

I will never say that any band is crap, but that i dont like them, or their music.

Just because you think that a group, singer, or even a certain type of music is rubbish, doesnt mean that it is definitive.

I personally think that hardcore house and the likes are total garbage, and is nothing more than a dj taking a track, speeding it up a bit, adding some variance on the original, and then laying a thumping bass line over it, but there are millions of different albums and singles sold worldwide because people think the opposite is true, and that it takes skill and knowledge to make a hardcore house track.

Different tastes, and thoughts, thats all!

FYI his name is Chad Kroeger not Kruger, the Kurt Cobain look.........get a grip!! Cobain was probably smacked out of his tits on heroin most of the time, i don't think you'd find Kroeger on that stuff.

Pearl Jam.....hmmm!! Even Flow is good but not much else i have to admit.


No need to take it so personally (that's you too chubby). I was asked what was wrong with them and i gave my opinion, it's a forum and that. you like, i think they're garbage. that's life.

nirvana, ahh now there was a band with a soul and passion. if you're going to bring the the drugs in music debate in to this chad got done for drink driving (alcohol is still a drug the last time i checked, taxable and legal i'll give you that but the most dangerous drug of all you would have to admit) recently and bon scott was definately on something.

and kurt cobain was on heroin (due to depression, an untreated mental illness) and STILL wrote timeless music with lyrics that had substance, depth and meaning that will be listened to for generations to come, a shame the same couldn't be said for nickleback. Wink Very Happy

rentboy sorry i meant Renton, Have you seen Nickelback live? If not then your not really at liberty to judge them, most of the people i know like them, but you don't......whoop dee do!!

If Nickelback were british i'm sure your views would differ, i think you've got issues against bands/artists from Canada.


Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Laughing

Acutally, I have seen nickleback live, not that it matters, because, why would my opinion of their music be changed by hearing it live, for the record, it actually makes it sound worse! IMHO

And yes, it's my opinion, subjective at best, but still perfectly valid and therefore not garbage.

And admin, how was that swearing???

Nickelback is bottom of the barrel - there's no escaping that. There is literally no worse music that I can name, and if it has any redeeming factor at all I'd love to have it pointed out to me.
The middle of America is FULL of that kind of dross, it all sounds exactly the same. Plodding, uninventive, empty, macho drivel for truck drivers to eat burgers to.

But then again don't let anyone that favours The Manics tell you anything about music! They are rotten.

Ice Ice Baby was an ok song, did you know his real name is Robert Van Winkle.

Ice Ice Baby was also released in the same year you were born daryl.

Just back from seeing R.E.M. in Southampton.
Good gig, Guillemots and Editors supported them, both played a good set
One down point of the gig was no Everybody Hurts, always a good sing-along.
However they did play Pretty Persuasion and Seven Chinese Brothers(from Reckoning) which was good as i've never seen them play they songs live.
No Find The River though Crying or Very sad

Pretty Persuasion is a great song, I'd have loved to have seen them do it. But it's not really the same anymore, without Bill Berry. They've only made one decent album without him. They're finished IMHO!
