I have about 3 new bands in my library that you have recommended PMO, but I simply don't do any rap music period. It is not my thing and if you find it important then that's cool, I don't so give me the benefit of my own personal choices, I only have so much time left in this world and I will not waste it on a music genre that just does nothing for me period. I do like most of the other bands you have recommended though and that is why I like music forums.

Well i suppose some people just can't get into certain genres and that's fine (if i ever end up listening to black metal i'll eat my hat), i've always thought though that if there's any one artist to represent rap then it's the Wu-Tang Clan.
Glad i've been a help in your listening habits though!

I respect your opinion about the Wu PMO, and because it is not my kind of music that's why I didn't cast a vote in this round. We have the same thoughts on the whole Black/Death/Doom metal genre as well, they are almost certifiably insane.

Default The Velvet Underground


"We're musical primitives."
-John Cale

Undoubtedly one of the most influential bands ever , second only to maybe the Beatles. The Velvet Underground eschewed conventional melodies and pop style lyrics in favor of dour, rigidly constructed songs about sadomasochism, sexual deviance, drugs, despair and the harsh reality of urban life on the fringes. Offbeat, daring, challenging, provocative, sometimes outrageous, always different, during wildly experimental and progressive second half of the 60’s The Velvet Underground was the avant-rock outfit of excellence. Although never commercially successful, there is that famous line from Brian Eno that only a few thousand people bought their first album and almost every single one of them would start a band. The Velvets influence on music can be traced everywhere from David Bowie to Sonic Youth.



The Velvet Underground:
Lou Reed- lead vocals/songwriter/guitarist
John Cale- Multiple instruments/vocals
Sterling Morrison- Guitar/bass
Maureen Tucker- Drums

Also:
Nico- Vocals on The Velvet Underground & Nico
Doug Yule- Multiple instruments on The Velvet Underground and Loaded

Albums:
The Velvet Underground & Nico
White Light/White Heat
The Velvet Underground
Loaded


Recommended Songs:
Sister Ray
Heroin
Venus in Furs
Sunday Morning
Sweet Jane
I'm Waiting for the Man
