I think I have a pretty good command of the English language, but you have no idea for how long I thought it was 'as a pose to' as opposed to 'as opposed to'.

My personal opinion is that grunge is one of the biggest fallacies in music history.

I don't have a problem with the ideal of grunge, The thought of someone putting Black Sabbath style riffs with punk/indie ideals & attitudes appeals to me.

Grunge was supposed to be the great break out of the American Underground , but that wasn't what happened. All that happened was record labels signed up any scruffy band that looked and sounded miserable , in a lot of cases ex hair metal bands (EG Alice In Chains & Pearl Jam) There were a few exceptions like Mudhoney who run out of ideas shortly after their first album came out , and Soundgarden who despite showing some signs of promise on Ultramega OK decided to be some crappy Sabbath tribute band instead.

But other than that the whole grunge thing led to the whole 'alternative' thing where people actually believed that by listening to major label stadium rock shit like the Smashing Pumpkins & Bush that they were under the deluded impression that they were listening to the alternative to the mainstream when in reality real independent labels and bands struggled to compete against the growing monopoly of the big 4 labels.
The whole thing was a lie , and the music was mostly rubbish and thats why I hate it.

This thread is brilliant. Picking a favorite post is like trying to pick my favorite song from Who's Next, but if I had to, it would be this one. Grunge annoys me far more than other genres simply because it should be good.

87 : SOUTHERN ROCK

I can get into soul and funk even though i'm not black. I can get into Krautrock even thought i'm not German , yet I just cannot get into this genre of music.

I put southern rock in the same category I put happy hardcore in that I can feel my brain cells melting when I listen to it. I don't know why that should be. Maybe because it's because I feel you have to own a pick up truck and shoot at furry mammals to appreciate it fully , maybe it's because I don't want a peice of music to make me feel like a redneck ... who knows. I don't normally look down on a genre of music if I can help it but in this case I can't help myself. It's like the American equivalent of chav music. In the UK you get chavs in souped up Vauxhall Novas blasting out drum & bass in the US you get rednecks in pick up trucks blasting out Southern Rock. To me it's the same thing.

I now understand why you don't like the Allman Brothers.

Thanks to how Yes are doing in the hall of fame poll, I just gotta give one more shout out to indie fans.

The only reason I checked out Modest Mouse's old albums is because you told me I loved them.

The Allman Brothers Band are blues rock, not southern rock. Duane Allman was a far better guitarist than Slowhand and Gregg never brought a drawl into his vocals. Skynyrd is southern rock.

And for the most part, people blast country music down south, not southern rock. Much, much worse.
