MB has taught me not to give a damn about the opinions of others, musically or otherwise. This has not only helped me find a musical taste of my own and not one of my peers, but also helped me cope with the disapproving voices of everyday life. Basically, those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind (shamelessly stolen from the quote thread )
It's also taught me lots of British slang.
And I never want to visit Manchester in fear of my life.

Oh, and Janszoon likes Land of the Loops and Cornelius.

funny. Weezer is the only band in V&Fs 90s list that i've never been able to get into. just sounded like they were trying to hard to be like the 'cool' kids. instead of just saying 'you know what? f0ck it!' like the actual 'cool' kids did.



as for the whole 'bands Janszoon likes' game this has turned into let's try

trans am
add n to (x)
mouse on mars
autechre
jega

the first 3 i'm pretty much certain the last 2 just seem appropriate.

alright, but you have to keep in mind i have a warped upbringing and perspective from the VAST majority of my peers and music fans. plus i fluked out into finding the chili peppers early and ahead of any of 'my' generation's big names before they started hitting big.

by the time Weezer was coming up, grunge and alt-rock was already moving down. the mid 90s got really odd for a little while. everything from downtempo stuff like Air and Portishead were getting airplay next to big beats like the Chemical Brothers or the Propellorheads and between that every other rock band was coming out with an industrialized remix of a failed single.

hearing what's ultimately a 'boohoo i'm still a lonely nerd' Pixies song they didn't write didn't do it for me then. still not really doing it for me now either. i can definitely understand the appeal for a lot of people but really, the Pixies wrote better songs and the Smashing Pumpkins wrote better music.

having said that, your list did prompt me to digitally dust off an oldie



Janszoon LOVES this band

Dude, there are certainly plenty of poor qualities to 311 (like some absolutely awful lyrics), but there are also plenty of redeeming qualities (like P-Nut and Sexton's snare) and man do they just fit my tastes. Great choice, by the way, Dave. Boo Boo would totally back us up on this.

This is my jam off of their self-titled (Grassroots is king, by the way):

The most important thing I've learned since joining musicbanter is that one should never be ashamed of ones taste in music. This is something that Jackhammer drilled into my head (get it... drilled!) from the start and that idea really gave me confidence to pursue whatever things music-related I have in the past two+ years, and to base my opinions about music on what I really think/feel and not on what's socially acceptable. That being said, musicbanter also taught me to like better music.

PS- I heard Janzoon has Hanson on vinyl.
