Well, you managed to piss me off...







A little.

But other than that, this thread rules.

92 : OVERCOOKED VOCALS

Now don't get me wrong here , I don't actually like this song. BUT if a girl came up to me and sung it to me like this i'd be quite touched by it.



If however she sang it to me like this



I'd call the police fearing for my life.

Man...my brother could imitate Whitney perfectly singing this song. Kinda scary actually.

Anyone who was actually creative in the punk scene got bored of it after a couple of years and it died just as quickly as it started.

But not in America

Somewhere along the line America took all the originality out of punk and have been flogging this dead horse since about 1982. A few bands got it and actually did something original. Most didn't. Somehow the 'DIY ethic' went from meaning 'do something orginal' to 'release your ****ty 3 chord thrash on some obscure record label you started yourself and call anyone making more money than you a fake '. And there's the rules that seem to have added to it. Which I find extremely funny considering punk was supposed to be about anarchy & nihilism. Endless bleating on about 'selling out' even though the Pistols openly admitted they were in it for the money. As soon as you added a 4th chord these idiots would whinge & bleat about it. And don't even get me started on straight edge , one of the dumbest things ever to be associated with any genre of music , let alone one that is SUPPOSED to be offensive & dangerous.
And then there's skateboards. What the fuck have skateboards got to do with anything? Skatepunk? Give me a fucking break why not have space-hopper punk while you're at it.

Thank you America for taking all the fun out of something that should have died decades ago.
I don't agree with a lot of things you say (I'm sure you have some ammo saved up for us proggies, admit it) and rest assured I will find a lot to nitpick about your list.

But this is 100% correct.

I find it irritating no end when a person like her, who has an undeniably impressive vocal range, feels the need to flex there warbling skills at the expense of a song.
Mariah Carey (Queen of Warbles) is another offender of overcooked vocals.
Nothing a competent sniper with a high powered rifle and a telescopic sight couldn't cure mid warble.
This would be in my top 5.

Seriously I hope prog fans make your list.

You know what I mean if you've ever seen progarchives user reviews.

The fact that a good pop album like 90125 has a lower rating than a steaming pile of **** like Tormato just because "it's not prog" shows just how stupid and biased these purists are.

Then you have a lot of guys who don't even know what progressive means, calling Radiohead uncreative and a ripoff of britpop bands (you know because they're british) yet they just can't get enough of Kansas.

There was even this one idiot calling Amnesiac a poor ripoff of The Division Bell.

This isn't in order is it?
I think Classic Rock Bores could well be in my top 5...
