Default The Best/Most Frustrating Argument You've Had On MusicBanter

So yeah, there are loads of great arguments/debates on these boards that have taken place over the years - what've been your own highlights? Which were the most fun, or frustrating, or interesting, or memorable, or whatever. If it's worth it give links too!

I don't think anyone would disagree that my best were with Don.

The cynic argument was fun, apparently they're musicians.

My most frustrating argument is indelibly intertwined in the Oomph! saga.

I think you might have joined just after Don was banned... he was the most insufferable DT worshipping prog metal fan imaginable... here are some choice cuts.

Ahh, PF. They were influential alright, but again...Who cares? It's not as if we know how different rock music would be today without them. Maybe it would be better. Compared with the music of today, their art-rock is neither impressive nor interesting. I also can't stand their mainstream accessibility and their turned hard rock/album rock elements.

Never said he can't keep up with Howe, but it seems like he chooses not to for the majority of any track. How bout you read the bass tab for "The Dance of Eternity." Reading Squires tabs would be like a great bed time story.

Dumbing it down? They've made it 10^100 times more interesting than Yes could ever dream of doing. If you put on a random Yes album the response you might get from listening to it is "this is cool, it's like rock but taken to the next level, but it's like 40 years old, but whatever, it's classic." And contrasted with listened to a DT album: "They've taken old-school prog to the next level, man this is so f-ing powerful and intense."

So, what's more interesting?

Hardly ANY of you have listed any good bands. What is with all this 60/70's crap?! You can't all be 40 year-olds in here can you?

Damn I've been in prog forums too much that I didn't realise how many people liked ****, boring and simple rock. Okay here goes:

Don takes me back! He was great. I remember he had a website with a poorly made chart on it detailing how he basically only liked Dream Theater and Tool.

He wrote an entire article on his website dedicated to how much he hated me.

I'll always have a soft spot for this guy who I was arguing something about Iron Maiden with.
He wouldn't accept he was wrong even though I was quoting the bands own sleevenotes , he also seemed to think I was 16 or something too.

Well iv had a few good ones lately with The_DP, in the process got called a Dbag and music snob because i argued Bob Dylan was influential.
