Musical Misconceptions
 
This was brought up in the shoutbox. What are some misconceptions you had about music as a kid? To start off (because I had TONS), I considered Garth Brooks to be the best country artist around. I also went through a phase where Incubus and Sublime were the best bands EVER.

I will repeat a couple of the ideas I shared from when I was about 13 and really just starting to get into music.

- I thought a band had to be from California to be good.
- I thought Linkin Park were as hardcore as music got.
- I thought a band had to have either three or five members to be good.
- I thought solo artists and singer/songwriters had no merit.

-I thought Slipknot was the heaviest band in existence
-I thought old bands "sucked"
-I thought Korn was the best band evar!!!
-I thought shoegaze was a band.

Even though I listened to all of this horrible music I still felt like there was something better out there.

I thought Canada was the world's foremost source of awesome music.

I thought bands beginning with 'The' were the only important bands around.

I thought albums had to be titled after the most important song on the album.

- I thought the Jesus & Mary Chain and the Smiths were the greatest indie bands ever
- i thought Frankie Goes to Hollywood was cutting-edge
- i was of the view Dylan is a good singer
- i thought the Manic Street Preachers' lyrics were biting socio-political remarks that made sense

and many others

I'm curious how these two notions worked together in your mind.

The production was for the time? When Relax was released I didn't hear anything else that quite sounded like it at the time. But the main thing to me was their big singles back them just sounded like good music, and I think they still sound good.
