Exactly. Thanks to the concise breakdown (I'll add some more): novelty, annoying, self-serving, hypocritical, cliche, repetitive, low-brow, calculated. They're the Burger King of music. Fast junk-food. Just without the staying power (bands break up, but good music will last for years).

And ninti, I've said before. I don't express these opinions for a popularity vote. If you don't agree, you're just wrong. And there's nothing I can do about that. There's nothing arrogant about being correct.

Bruno ... and yes, I like fanning the fire sometimes.

I tend to agree with all of you on various levels. Yes, Limp Bizkit is no Beatles. I imagine in 10 years I probably won't be listening to them much at all. It's the same with the bands I listed earlier. I'm not exactly listening to New Kids or Vanilla Ice now, but when they were popular I enjoyed listening to them. Of course, I was also only like 12 or 13. I think your musical tastes change as you go through life.

And yes, I did listen to bands like you listed as well...Depeche Mode, Erasure, Oingo Boingo, U2, Duran Duran, etc. But, there's a time and place for everything. Sometimes I want to listen to Sinatra and sometimes I want to listen to Sepultura. That's why I like the Empeg. I can put all kinds of different music on it and whatever mood I'm in, I have the music to suit it.

Finally, comments like the following are completely opinionated and hold no fact:

I don't express these opinions for a popularity vote. If you don't agree, you're just wrong. And there's nothing I can do about that. There's nothing arrogant about being correct.

An opinion is just that: An opinion. It's not right or wrong.

ROFL, Bruno, you can be very funny sometimes. I hope everyone got the sarcasm in that statement.

I want to get the T-shirt (on sale at The Onion) which says "Your favorite band sucks."

Anthrax and Public Enemy only picked up where Run DMC and Aerosmith left off.

You're probably right. But I'm too busy blaming Run-DMC for digging Aerosmith out of their well-deserved grave. (As a friend of mine has put it, Aerosmith is a band whose time has come and gone, and gone, and gone again.)

Alas Tony, alas. I feel that I'm wasting it all sometimes. But I'm confident that enough people on here soak it all in as it's intended. That's why I still think this BBS has no match.

Boy, that would have been amongst my reasons, had I wanted to enumerate them. I think that she's both ugly and untalented. I had true fear in my heart when I heard that she would be playing Arwen. Fortunately, she does look like an elf and she was only on screen long enough for her one emotion to not get too old.

Back to SE_Sport_Driver's post :

I have just put on "Since I left you" by "The Avalances" It totaly rocks with most of the visuals. Not sure how to describe it, kind og Hip-Hop/Dance stuff, ie loads of funky samples etc...

Not sure if you can get it in the US, not even sure where they come from, I have just got it off alt.binaries.warez.uk.mp3 I do own the original (of course) but with ADSL it is quicker to download than encode ;-)

Nice. Here is one of my favorite lines...

"My family, friends, and associates could save me a lot of precious time by accepying the reality that I am always right."

BTW my roommate and his girlfriend are going to a nice romantic Anthrax show tonight in Boston.

OK you asked for it, here it is ....

Rammstein "Du Hast Me" Best played at loud volume.

www.rammstein.com

Heard it at a HI-FI show in a demo room for Nordost Cables. It was played right after a high brow classical track. A few people vacated the room rather quickly to go in search of another violin concerto

Isn't it just called "Du Hast?"

I have the German and Englist version on CD... I got the cd about 5 years ago (has it been that long!?) but my friend's version doesn't have any English translations. I prefer the Deutch anyway!

Quite Correct - Du Hast

Entschuldigen Sie Bitte or words to that effect!

The English translation varies a lot, and I don't think anyone will understand it really. There are many lines in songs in English where we don't understand what the writer is saying

I prefer the German as it makes you concentrate on the music that is going on.

My current favorites:

Techno (Artist and album):
Paul van Dyk - Seven Ways
Paul Oakenfold - Tranceport
BT - Movement in Still Life

Well, I don't know much outside of that category...

Currently stuck in my head:
Alabama 3 - described as "like elecrtronic country"... Hmm, I don't think so, but for the stupid maybe. It's kind of something like Tom Waits, if you know his stuff at all. Specific song might be "Mansion on the Hill".

I think anyone who refers to Alabama 3 as "country" is mistaking A3 for the old country/rock band called "Alabama" which is totally unrelated. A3 is not country.

For those in the US with HBO, Alabama 3 is who did the song that's used as the theme music for The Sopranos.

Now the Sopranos theme song is an amazing opening for the program, but I don't know how well I'd place it as a song on its own. Hmmm... They mention gun in it a few times... Do they ever say anything about a truck or a dog? If it's something about a dead dog, then it can be considered country.

Remember that TV theme songs are heavily cut down to fit in the approx-1-minute timespan of the opening credits. "Woke Up This Morning" is actually a really good song on its own, and it's interesting how the additional lyrics further crystallize the theme of the series and the character of Tony Soprano. Nothing about trucks or dogs, though...


Woke Up This Morning
by A3
1997

(Gonna take ya down, deep down to the front line, deep down)

You woke up this morning, got yourself a gun
Your mama always said you'd be The Chosen One
She said you're one in a million, you've got to burn to shine
But you were born under a bad sign, with your blue moon in your eyes

And you woke up this morning, and all that love had gone
Your papa never told you about right and wrong
But you're, but you're looking good, baby, I believe that you're a-feeling fine (shame about it)
Born under a bad sign, with a blue moon in your eyes (so sing it now)

Woke up this morning (you got a blue moon)
Got a blue moon in your eyes (so sad, goddamn, goddamn shame about it)
Woke up this morning (you got a blue moon)
Got a blue moon in your eyes, yeah (woke up this morning)

You see you woke up this morning, the world turned upside down
Lord above, things ain't been the same since the blues walked into town
But you're, but you're one in a million, 'cause you've got that shotgun shine (shame about it)
Born under a bad sign, with a blue moon in your eyes, yeah

Woke up this morning (you got a blue moon)
Got a blue moon in your eyes (so sad, goddamn, goddamn shame about it)
Woke up this morning (you got a blue moon)
Got a blue moon in your eyes, yeah (yeah I know it, you just can't help yourself)
(just can't help yourself)
(just can't help yourself)
(But I know a man who can)
(Mister D. Wayne Love)

When you woke up this morning everything was gone
By half past ten your head was going ding-dong
Ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes
Like a voice tryin' to tell ya there's something you should know

Last night you were flying but today you're so low
Ain't it times like these makes you wonder if you'll ever know
The meaning of things as they appear to the others
Wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers

Don't you wish you didn't function, Don't you wish you didn't think
Beyond the next paycheck and the next little drink?
Well you do... so make up your mind to go on,
'Cause when you woke up this morning everything you had was gone

Woke up this morning (when ya woke up this morning)
Woke up this morning (woke up this morning)
Woke up this morning
You wanna be, you wanna be the chosen one
(yeah you know it, cause you just can't help yourself, yeah)
Woke up this morning (when ya woke up this morning)
Woke up this morning (woke up this morning)
Woke up this morning,
You got yourself a gun
You got yourself a gun
You got yourself a gun

I won't have to buy a Suburban, will I? I'll see if I can grab a few MP3s from somewhere and consider putting this on my long to-buy list. Most recent additions to my collection: Chemical Brothers' "Come With Us," Groove Armada's "Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub)" and Lamb's "What Sound."

Can Paul Oakenfold and others be considered Techno artists?! I'm from Detroit, the birthplace of Techno, and I'm still baffled how people spinning other people's work can be considered Techno artists rather than just DJ's. I know that the root of techno is to sample other artists - but just playing their songs with your little touch to them is different.

Don't get me wrong - I think that DJ's (good DJ's) are amazing. I've seen Oakenfold a few times and he is great. Whenever a song that he spun starts playing on my player - I know it is from one of his shows before I even check the track info (just has a certain sound).

And then their are artists like Kruder and Dorfmeister who blur the line by putting out comps of other artists AND making some of their own work.

Bruno - good call on Lamb and GA.

I have to agree 100%. It's just that most people would hear it and say "Oh, you like that techno stuff". Glad to see you're not like most people.

Knowing this, next time I log on at home next to my CD rack, I'll try picking out something more specific. I suppose you know about Cirrus and Juno Reactor then?
