Damn, you really do. Your music selections continue to satisfy the original intend of this thread. So boring, they barely sound like music at all. The one with the Sax at first had promise, but then fully disappointed.

To keep with Fraser's idea, I just want to say that I generally consider Trent Reznor to be the true master of making boring music. Perfect Drug and Head Like a Hole are mildly glimmering exceptions, but man, I can't for the life of me understand why people would listen to a NIN album the whole way through. The best thing I can say about them is that I actually like the AFI cover of head Like a Hole.

And man, Joshb really brought the shit in his last post. Eight tracks and not a person that knows how to sing, compose a melody, or play an instrument among them. Christ.

I don't know man, even if you don't like Reznor or his music, "King of Boring"? ( Soundtrack stuff doesn't count)

Been to a dozen NIN shows since 91' and they never feel anything short of chaotic.

Wow.. This thread....

First, I would like to thank all the guys for dropping some great tracks. Really brought me back and got me totally stoked.

Ben, as you didn't grow up with any interesting music, you get a pass from me. You stroking off to Tegan and Sarah makes me laugh so hard my 35 year old ass just almost had a stroke. BUT, I'm glad to see you listening to things like surrealistic pillow and the like. Doesn't matter to me how you found it (suck cock punch) at all, as long as you found it.

Other than this example, I feel your musical tastes are "wicked" terrible and you should be more open minded as just about EVERYTHING you point out has roots in many of the examples presented to you, and you still disregard them.. Hmmmm... My two cents.

If I drank beer, the Billy Currington video would be downright eerie. Spectacularly fun song and video as it is.

Josh- The Cream cover is actually pretty awesome, and the Nerf Herder track is downright adorable. OK Go is always also a good time, and I think you know how I feel about Zebrahead. Glorious. It's really too bad that when the first lead singer left he went and formed I Hate Kate, which is really unspectacular. The MSI video was good, too. While I would never be so audacious as to call them GOOD, they sure are fun.

Fraser- I'll catch the most flak yet for this, but I honestly cannot even see or hear The Smiths and take them seriously. I hate to just genuinely dismiss a band with such a devoted following, but seeing that video just made me giggle. As for The Clash, London Calling is fine, but I'll take Should I Stay over that any day. The Fugazi track I can actually appreciate and enjoy some of what it did for what came next.

Ben, you realize thats sort of the point? That song is very tongue and cheek. It is overwrought for a reason. I think it helps to not always take a song at face value. Music is still an art form, regardless of how throw away much of it has become in the past decade or two. I feel to really get as much out of it as you can, I try to pay attention to the nuances and lyrics before you make too many sweeping judgements. There are bands I initially did not like, that once I actually sat down and tried to look at without personal bias, started to make more sense. Not with every band, but the ones that culturally seem to matter.

Of course listen to what you want, and enjoy what moves you, who the hell is anyone to judge you at the end of the day. But also try to give music the same open minded respect you give your personal art. Otherwise you just become a rigid philistine.

Just because you don't see its appeal, does not negate its value. I guess I am a bit of a snob about being aware of influences and the history behind genres and how music has evolved. I try to have as wide an interest as possible. I was in a band for 8 years and lived and breathed many kinds of sound when playing with others. The more I learn the less I realize I know, and it makes me want to see more.

Anyway less seriousness monologues , more fun now.

If you like Sabbath at all you MUST love this song and band. [www.youtube.com]

Hillsy, thanks so much for posting Cocksparrer. I just got back from London last night and was craving them the entire time I was there. I had "England Belongs To Me" stuck in my head the whole week.

Some sweet tracks from Maynard for you Ben. I personally feel Tool and Perfect Circle are still some of the most technical and dynamic, and smart rock bands out there.

Some songs can be really drawn out and long, but it holds up even after all these years. In chronological order ( sort of)

This is the first Tool song I was into in around 92'. At the time in HS I was into bands like Helmet, Ministry, and a lot of hardcore. Tool sort of combined a lot of the elements from different rock bands and did it in a really direct and smart way.

[www.youtube.com] Opiate


[www.youtube.com] Sober ( probably one of their most commercially successful songs.. along with Prison Sex)


[www.youtube.com] Judith

[www.youtube.com] ( The Nurse who loved me) Pretty slow track.

From their album emotive ( covers) Tough to cover songs this epic and not have it suck.

Also along with his work on Pucifer, I REALLY like this track

Never heard of The Sword before, but they sound like Sabbath, so that's fine by me. The Sheer Terror track was totally not for me, though.

All killer tracks. I love the Streets. That album was big when I was living in Japan in 02'. I remember listening to it a lot.

Maybe this ought to be the Music that Matt will Hate thread. For newer light stuff I'd much rather hear:

And when it's time for some energy:

[www.youtube.com] (yes I like cheesy old stuff)
[www.youtube.com] (heh, same here)
[www.youtube.com] (yes, pretty obvious)
[www.youtube.com] (gave up my tendency to listen to Industrial a while ago, but I always like this this one - so over the top and cheesy, and it's got tympanis and brass solos in it, fer christsake!)

I wanted to throw Digital Underground's "No Nose Jobs" in here somewhere, but there's no good Youtube version of it. Shame.

Eh, my memory for songs is incredibly poor. I always need to sort through my collection to pull out the really good stuff, but I left my MP3 player at home today. Some awfully good songs in the above list, and I wouldn't have expected to see someone post a Young Gods song in here... :)

Ok and as a last songs, are slower and more shoe gazey... from my favorite girl fronted band in the 90s. Mainly because Hope Sandoval was ( is still) so damn hot. Two of the best songs of that era in my opinion. The best beginning of a relationship and end of relationship songs..in order.
