    Primus fits into the catagory of Pink Floyd Wannabees who get doped up and sing darkly humorous songs while playing the base guitaur instead of lead and vice versa.

    not TOO bad, but not as deep as I prefer.

    Best band ever?

    Oh gee. . . you know that band of McCartney's before he was with Wings?

    Or maybe Garcia's, if you aren't a California girl.

    Crackdown, put the crackdown...

    Kidding, kidding, the Bugaboos are pretty cool, as are the Grateful Turtles....

    I have to say that Tool is the best band ever. This is the one band I know of that hasn't put out any crap. That alone gets my vote.
  6. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    Tool is cool.

    TOOL:KoRn: [IMG]ink Floyd:Led Zeppelin

    I'll have to agree with chaosturtle, except for korn. Way too sellout for my taste. Replace with AiC or Slipknot.

    I should have disables smilies...

    It should have read-

    TooL:KoRn::pink Floyd:Led Zeppelin

    making an analogy...

    good band with underground following
    mediocre band with too big a following

    respective to their own eras of course....

    I did NOT mean to suggest that I like KoRn (or LZ)

    So you're saying you think Zepplin was a mediocre band?

    You're kidding.

    Zepplin is good, but there are WAY too many kids that have on the shirts and things because it's cool.

    in art class, my teacher turns on the classic rock station and lets it play while we draw.
    If over half of the class objects, he'll turn it to the new rock for three or four minuits untill the crap song goes off.
    Stairway to Heaven came on and ALL THREE of the kids in Zepplin T-shirts called for a change of music.

    I think THAT is what Turtle ment.
  11. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    Well, maybe mediocre was too strong a word...

    Orgg has it right, though. It's about substance over form, and there are sooo many KoRn fans, when TooL expresses similar angst but with much more creativity and talent.
    I think that TooL will outlast KoRn in the long run though, as Floyd is clearly superior - musically speaking - Led Zeppelin (which doesn't necessarily mean that LZ is bad, just not Floyd).

    Gods, I hate being politically correct...

    Don't tell me the crap Flyod has put out in the past 20 years is good! Zep was good, but not great. **** rock is fun, but you don't see anyone putting up AC/DC here.

    Ophidian, right on. TOOL is a great band. Musical literature. But for me, it will always have to be


    with real big thanks to Fugazi for always getting better, and is the closest thing to intelectual musical poetry on both a lyrical and insturmental sense. But JSBX is the coolest band ever.

    Random love goes out to DJ Shadow, Beastie Boys, Busta Rhymes, The Cramps, The Misfits, Oingo Boingo, Sonic Youth, Ministry, reverand Horton Heat, Starflyer 59, pre-1991 Metallica, and last but not least, Soundgarden.

    There is only one good reason to even mention the beastie boys: three white, skinny, jewish rappers. Boychik's in the hood!
  15. theorgg Slob

    I agree. in the last twenty years, Pink Floyd hasn't put much out that is good.

    Due to the band breaking up in '82, nad the last album being virtualy a Roger Waters Solo album in everythng but name, I'd say that yes. pink floyd(w/o roger waters) has become another Lynard Skinard: playin' the oldies everyone wants to hear, but no new material is relesed.

    Their OLDER stuff, on the other hand...
  16. galtwish Loudmouth

    Well, I might give partial credit to Syd Barret-era Floyd...but just partial credit. If you like old Floyd, you should really check out mid-late 80's Sonic Youth. The music is inventive like old Floyd, but their lyrics aren't the same kind of nonsense. They're a different kind of nonsense.

  17. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    That does it.
    Sonic Youth? Inventive, sure, but utterly unlistenable with only a couple of exceptions.
    Just my opinion, but since I'm always right....
