Well, in circles around here, my execration of Between the Buried of Me is quite unpopular.

Andy Latimer (Camel) > Dave Gilmour (Pink Floyd) - but both give me musicgasms.

Led Zeppelin is a great band (like Boo Boo said).

Alice in Chains is the best grunge band (not a terribly unpopular opinion).

Phil Anselmo is a great vocalist.

Signals is one of Rush's best albums.

I like Coldplay.

Thelonious Monk is one of the best jazz pianists ever (probably not that unpopular).

Toto is cool.

The Strokes are a good alternative rock band. Yes, I said it.

One Hot Minute is RHCP's best album apart from BSSM, and possibly Mother's Milk.

King Crimson is one of most incredible genius amazing musicgasmic mindblowingly awesome bands in existence.

John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess are capable of writing interesting music.

The Eagles are great - I enjoy them a lot.

The heaviest music on Earth is doom metal.

Can isn't that unlistenable.

Joe C0cker's covers are awesome - and his cover of 'With a Little Help from My Friends' is better than the Beatles' original.

Velvet Revolver is a kickass band.

I like U2 - but they are horribly overrated.

I agree with nearly most of this, except C0ckers version of WALHFMF being better than the original and Toto being cool.

And Latimer is a much better guitarist than Gilmour technically, though I still prefer Gilmour and consider him to be the greater guitarist, and with more lasting appeal, afterall, few people know who Latimer is, not that it makes him any less good, but it does mean he lacks in the impact/influence departmen, regardless it's nice to know me and Les are not the only Camel fans around here. And I personally consider AIC the be to least best grunge band of the big 4, but that's just me.

Also I don't really consider One Hot Minute to be among RHCP's best, though it does have some of the most f*cking amazing bass playing I have ever heard.

Tool are one of the worst bands in the existence of music.

Extreme metal is the future of technicality and expression. There are some that do it poorly, but the ones that get it right (Atheist, Element, Corpsefier, Cryptopsy) are unbeatable.

Led Zepplin are THE most overrated band in the history of music.

With the exception of 4-5 bands, everything that is 'real' Screamo and Emo sounds the exact same, says the exact same thing, and are simply propogating a genre of music that was designed to die out.

Punk died in the 80's.

Rock died in the early 90's

Emo is more of a trend for melodramatic teenagers than a music genre, I've listened to both the mainstream and the 'real' stuff and I refuse to believe that anyone can enjoy it on any level.

Black Holes and Revelations is Muse's best album.

However, Matt Bellamy probably has one of the worst singing voices ever.

Dragonforce make laughingly bad musc.

Meh, that's all I can think of right now.

If you think rock could actually die at all, then it's pretty clear to me that you're not very bright.

Rock was actually doing considerably much better in the early 90s than throughout the 80s, regardless it certainly wasn't dead, it's not dead now, and it never will be... Regardless of how bads the scenes may be, genres can't actually die... Though it's understandble that you say it died in the early 90s because you are a grunge hater, dispite the fact that I am a grunge fan I have no intention of getting hostile unless you become abrasive about it... I will be easy on you, dispite the fact that Atheist sucks total ass.

I also don't see extreme metal being the future of expression anytime soon... Hence, no one genre will be the basis for artistic expression, as people express themselves in different ways, they do it through different genres of music, so what you just said is incredibly stupid.

Rock as it is today is simply a rehash of ideas that were invented and perfected along time ago.

Same with Punk, Hardcore, most Metal, Hip-Hop, WAM, etc.

They all had a message that was time specific. There are bands that play the style, but there is not the same meaning behind it.

And Atheist suck? Do you even listen to/play music?

And yet extreme metal is so original.

Rock has changed, oh my, it must be dead.

One reason I dislike so many metalheads, everytime I diss a band they like, it automatically means I don't know anything about music, this is pretty much all you people know when it comes to rebuttal skills, quite sad really.
