I listened to AC/DC & Guns & Roses + Allice Cooper

My daughter come to me & wanted me to listen to M&M ?

I ask her what color she had..

If you notice it goes in cycles like:
The Cars  ,  The Doors  . etc...   All dealing with cars

Lol. That happens to me. I absolutely love music from the 70s. I did not live the 70s (I was born in Dec, 1978), but I still think that the best music was made then. From glam to punk to heavy metal to ambient to jungle to techno to new wave to progressive rock to disco to whatever you want. Everything was amazing.

I should like the 80s better, as I was grown up in the 80s, but this is not the case. The 80s gave great music as well, but everything sounds very similar. That's why  I adore Smashing Pumpkins or the good ol' grunge bands. They were redefining music to sound more like in the 70s, in very different fashions. When Smashing Pumpkins released Gish (1991) nodoby played hard rock songs of 7 minutes with infinite solos and deep lyrics (appart from ol' Heavy Metal bands, but I've always thought that Heavy Metal bands' lyrics are a little bit on the same topic, at least the most commercial songs [a la fear of the dark]). It was the "Queen's concept of music" which I absolutely love.

Eminem? I'm sorry, but Eminem is the most idiotic mass of suicidal, depressing, jump-off-the-bridge, kill-all-the-women, snort-crack attitude...packed into one excuse of a human being.
Me? I like the Baroque period. Bach, Telemann, Handel....
And The Beatles. :wink:

Give him a break, Zack, he had a very rough childhood.

But anyways, I was born in the late 80s and raised through the 90s, but recently Ive had a liking for 70s/80s music. Especially since Vice City came out.. damn what a good game with good music....!

Doesn't excuse his attitude towards everything. IMHO his music is plainly, openly violent. That isn't needed these days.

Yea... I was thinking it through in school today, and decided that was such a bad excuse. Lol. Anyone can redeem themselves after having a bad childhood. But I suppose in a way he has, what with his music career and all.

He makes good music now and then.  I have no business judging the rest of his life, lest I be judged (where have I heard that before?)

Anyways, soul from the 60s and jazz from any time floats my boat too... That stuff is about as energetic as music gets.  But as rock goes, I agree with nate that grunge rock from the 90s kicks ass.  And some of its pop rock ain't bad either.

Also, this sound wierd, but I love orchestral music.  Not like opera and classical stuff, but recent stuff, like in movies and such.

I do love orchestral music as well. And I am one of the little people who actually thinks that orchestral + rock is great. "Who wants to live forever". Listen to that song and shut up Cheesy

I also like when "modern" people try to do orchestral music. If not, listen to the OST of "American McGee's Allice" (which, by the way, is one of my favourite games"). It has been writen and performed by the keyboardist from Nine Inch Nails. It is GREAT!

I think he is an incredibly clever artist. I dont enjoy much of his music, but he knows exactly how to write a song that can be sold to angst filled teenagers. I would wager that alot of what he writes about is purely for commercial sale and not because of his bad childhood. I could be wrong though.

Alot of bands have produced music which has just as much angst/violence/etc in it as Eminem, but never gets complained about because the meaning of the lyrics isn't always blantantly obvious. For example
Quote from: "Korn - Make me bad"

I need something to do, I need to feel the sickness in you.

I feel the reason as its leaving me, no not again.
Its quite decieving, as Im feeling the flesh make me bad.


Is about the lead singers sexual abuse as a child. This is one of my favourites pieces of clever lyrics:
Quote from: "Tool - Stinkfist"

Constant over stimu-lation numbs me
but I would not want
You any other way.

Cause,
It's not enough.
I need more.
Nothing seems to satisfy.
I said,
I don't want it.
I just need it.
To breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

Finger deep within the borderline.
Show me that you love me and that we belong together.
Relax, turn around and take my hand.


The song is about societies desensitisation to media, like the dress standards that were acceptable on television between today and ten years ago. The lyrics themselves are a double metaphor, because the song can also be taken (at first glance) as a song about a sexual act.

The above are only my interpretations of the lyrics, as with any writing, only the author knows exactly what the meaning of the piece is.

I really tried to listen to all of it & whichforth I even tried to stomache listening to m&m but regardless maybe it's the dates & location I grew up in but I still say :
AC/DC   Lynard Skynard   Cinderella   Guns n Roses  
Black Sabbath  Iron Maiden  Eric Claypton  CCR  The Doors
give em a shot.  I grew up in the country in the USA,
I grewed up on a dairy farm & Yes I have longer hair than some women. I beleive in a world of peace. I think its obtainable if all of the worlds admins would try harder.
If you really like music try out :
Guns & Roses , Civil War
The actual words on rock are more differant than say m&m
There is alot of differance in just the words along.
May peace be with you in your darkest hours.
