So is calling people a moron which you did in another thread and YOU said you are not a music expert. Not me.

Point is you don't really need to be a musical expert to interpret a thread properly and put your view across instead of someone elses.

Fair enough, I won't copy/paste from Allmusic anymore.

Simple but sage advice Mr. Nic...

I just realised I complemented a post that was completely copied from elsewhere... I feel kinda dumb now... :-S

I have no issue at all with genre categorisation to describe what one is listening to when trying to explain to others who are maybe interested. When discussing music on a forum such as this I would have thought that most of us understood genres meaning even if we were a bit reticent about some genre usage.

I do have a reluctance to use the terms Indy and Alternative. I think that Indy has lost it's meaning. With the downturn in major labels taking on new artists most of what we listen to could be described as Indy. Alternative I have always thought was an odd term. Alternative to what?

But as suggested by others style or status has little meaning; the idea is to just enjoy the music in the end.

Don't let it worry you. I felt a bit foolish and bit back at the individual on another thread when I should have ignored.

I read somewhere Angels and Airwaves are alternative rock, I lol'd. Then again, I'd call REM an alternative rock band, and some would lol at me for doing so...

It's funny I'd consider R.E.M abd bands like Pearl Jam alternative too - it might just be that at the time I was getting into them they really were "alternative" or "indie" and they blew up into mainstream proportions...

But I think with those bands its all about the attitude. They're both bands that have kinda said throughout their career - "I'm doing it my way" and that is what may define their alternative - ness...
