Yeah what the hell are you talking about. And all the bands you listed, ****ty or not aren't exactly technically savvy. I think you missed the point of the post.

What, you guys don't remember all that Yngwie-style shredding on the first Gnarles Barkley album?

I think my problem with the idea of loving a band for being technically good is the fact that it turns music into a sport. The faster, the more accurate or skillful the better. This really isn't what music is about.


Alot of those people that I know that think like that are really arrogant, and applying statistics to music, making it about speed, makes it so they can feel like all of their opinions are always right. Like, if 'speed', or another statistic like factor was how I judged music, I could confidantly say that Yngwie is better than Led Zeppelin, because what Im using to compare the two isn't even a matter of opinion anymore. I hate these people.

I love threads like this because it allows us to be thoroughly overreaching and make vast generalizations and it's FUN. I don't have to agree with any of this to make it fun, though I agree with most of it.

Half of them aren't even rock artist and don't play their own music......

Honestly, your unqualified blanket statements are almost as irritating as Cobe Kai was, do you give modern music any chance at all or simply listen with the intention of hating it?
I dont listen to current/modern music...it all sucks.....well, most of it anyways. I was being sarcastic w/the post as many have no "musicianship", 'Technically" or otherwise.

Yeah, Paramore, a teen band, who's even ****tier than the guy who found them. I dont get the other 2 sorry. Have you ever read/listened to the lyrics for "Crush"(Paramore)? they're almost as bad as the band, and make no sense.

It tends to be people who listen to the radio who say that.
