Default Not-Quite-Controversial Music Conversation Starters

To impress attractive hipsters or something. To start conversations with people who know what you're talking about. Name all you know.
I'll start.

*Although The Sex Pistols are credited as the first punk rock band, the sound was used before by artists such as the New York Dolls. The Pistols just refined it to include themes of anarchy and rebellion.

*Most sucessful indie bands model themselves after the Velvet Underground.

*Dio totally ****ed up Black Sabbath.

Only rules are, the artists have to be semi-mainstream, so people will know what you're talking about, they can't be pants-pissingly contriversial, and they have to make you sound smart or pretentios.

"The All-American Rejects latest album is actually quite good and very underrated."



That should help you out.

here are a few legit ones to cover yourself in a hipster debate

- rainbow smokes deep purple
- monster magnet's first album 'dopes to infinity' totally rips off kyuss' 'welcome to sky valley'
- the red hot chili peppers are vastly superior to mr. bungle in every way
- a couple of the guys from radiohead used to be in blur
- gwar and slipknot are the same band just different costumes
- the oldest guy from hanson is in the goo goo dolls
- bob dylan stole all his songs from bruce springsteen's leftovers
- motorhead ripped off white zombie for the riff to 'ace of spades'
- chuck berry used to light his guitar on fire before hendrix started doing it

...which really doesn't matter considering Monster Magnet are fecking awful. I think everybody ripped Kyuss off at some point; apart from the band Scott Reeder was in before there weren't any predecessors which sounded remotely like Kyuss.

Got a few of my own:
- FNM was the only good band Mike Patton was part of (taken a while to realize this, lol)
- Jazz fusion has the capacity to sound intricate and progressive or dated as f*ck (I've heard both on the same album)
- People that claim the Beatles are their favorite band haven't looked very hard
- J. G. Thirlwell might be a crazy dude but he's ugly as f*ck

my initial post was facetious.

dopes to infinity is MM's magnum opus and their 4th album. it rips off as much from sky valley as palm desert has in common with the jersey shore.

Thought of another one:
The Zombies are the most underrated band of the 60s.
Vinyl is only coming back because these stupid [B]hipsters[B] buy it to be cool. *watch as everyone denies being hipster*
