I really don't get it, of all the bands to go after, you go after Incubus.

It's one thing to go after sacred cows, it's another to go after a band that isn't particularly well liked in the first place (one that's underrated, of all things), and ACT like you know something that nobody else does, that your opinion is fact and you have to spread the word.

I hate these kinds of threads, really I do, they always lead to disaster and this forum is already loaded with them.

no you illiterate clown. I said they were decidedly not a sacred cow. If I had gone after someone that was revered, I'd be a boring attention starved douche.

Incubus is far worse than the Rolling Stones, U2, Radiohead, and Kanye West but we can't say incubus is bad because their not super popular.

Well you know what I think they suck, and I think its high time we stopped giving a band a pass because they aren't played constantly. Incubus sucks and I don't care if their Boo Boo's favorite band, i'm still mocking them at risk of whatever violation that is Big Brother.

Big3, I'll get to the thread, I think you need to be more ducks back-like however. MB is what it is. I believe if people like you, me, deminoid, cardboard, rt, hammer, urban, Bulldog, jack etc etc etc there are a ton of great posters here who have great conversations about music and it's ever changing landscape. It's an open forum to all there will always be needless posts, repetitive nonsense and and a whole lot of sifting through the **** to get to the sugar, but it's always there.

I like Incubus but they have been in rapid decline for me for a decade now.

Here's a selected discography report card

Also Big3 I don't understand fully your title "underrated failure" could you elaborate of how you feel that motto applies to the band\thread?

I think like the premise of the thread (if I understand it); I think a band like Coldplay fits the criteria you mention for me.

I despise Coldplay not because their music is awful or listenable but because it does nothing for me, seems like a safe amalgamation of popular genres new and tried and true and by all accounts the band and it's members are worthless jack-offs which makes me even less inclined to give it a second or third chance.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Its because the amount a given bands sucks is not fully appreciate, its underrated.

Change it if you think its not appropriate.

What I don't get, is why rally against "nu-metal?" How is that going to accomplish anything? You're not going to stop people from making a certain type of music.

And were proclaimed "nu-metal" bands such as System of a Down or Korn really that bad? What ever happened to just simply ignoring something you don't like? I don't like Korn, I'm not going to listen to them.

But as with Incubus, from what you said the frontman is annoying and their political views are annoying. Doesn't make the music bad though, although I've hardly heard them and honestly don't give a crap about them. I have more awesome music to listen to .

No, better than all of those actually.

You think most of my favorite bands suck, I also think the same way about a lot of the music you listen to, you don't see me making threads about it.

Oh my god, I can't believe you, you really think you're fighting the system don't you?

Also, not my favorite band.
