Oh I don't doubt it still happens now. But I think as far as mainstream rock goes it'll never be as bad as it was in the 70s.

I mean could you imagine someone like The Killers or My Chemical Romance making one of their songs last half an hour.

Urgh

A perfect setlist should have 1 third new stuff , 1 third classics and 1 third of fan favourites that alternate on a regular basis.

I definitely wouldn't put it past Davis' songwriting abilities.

now that I think about the lyrics it makes sense.

about the 70's bands playing 20 minute songs... I remember as an act of boredom one of the bands I was in back in the 90's decided to play Smoke on the water for 2 hours in our practice room. It went from a joke to a competition to see who would stop first... ahh, the days of free time and no bills to pay looking back though, it was a nice form of male bonding I guess.

40 : Top Pop Hits Of The Time Being Played Over Film Footage From Those Years

If your going to show a piece of film from say 1973/74 just say it's from then , I will believe you y'know . You really don't need to play Tiger fucking Feet by Mud over it to emphasis the point.

It doesn't happen too often as I have a lot of respect for most of the people who post here *cough*. But there have been times when someone will come along with no taste whatsoever and then suddenly out of the blue claim that the love The Fall or whoever. I should be happy that someone else loves the bands I do but the reality is my first thought is 'Oh God , now i'll have to deal with that pain in the arse everytime I want to talk about a band I love'.
Sorry but there's a hierarchy involved. You don't just jump from Coldplay or Muse or U2 to The Fall , you earn it. when you have a basic knowledge of the bands of the time and opinions on other post punk albums and have shown me you've actually LIVED with these albums then maybe i'll take you seriously.
Now c'mon, you hate Bono, and this kinda falls into the kind of snobbish comments he would make.

Punk anyone?

Why does Nirvana get the blame for every mainstream rock band in the past 15 years that lacks technical ability? As if they never existed before Nirvana.
