Default Good Afternoon

Hello.........

Forums! What a pain in the arse, but unfortunately theyre mildly addictive, the forum i used to use decided to disappear off the face of the Earth and now here I am, youre the poor unfortunates that will have to put up with me for the forseeable future.

I love music, all music apart from what commonly known as metal, not that rock music from the 70's that metal heads pretend is metal i dont mean that i mean modern day metal, its just music for people who dont like music as far as Im concerned. I can be a sarcy bastard, but im ok.

Right Im off to have a look around.

Whats modern day metal? Aye, theres the likes of BFMV and Trivium and a long line of metal-core bands but theres plenty of good modern day metal too.

Anyway, what are some of your favourite bands?

Welcome aboard.

Thanks for the welcome mojo, im a Beatlehead and i love the Kinks and Led Zep loads of mid late 60s stuff loads of 70s stuff early 80s is good but the 80s were dire for the most part apart from the Smiths, 90s were an improvement inparticularly the British stuff and the last decade has been the worst era in popular music history apart from the Beta Band and the Libertines and a few other things.

I cant wait for things to change.

I'm starting to become suspicious of this "I love all music" claim of yours.

Anyway, welcome!

We clearly are not going to agree on much, are we? I mean, i dig The Kinks, Led Zep and The Smiths too but I can just tell we are going to disagree at every turn.

Welcome to MB regardless, though.

Haha thanks for the welcome Janz. Its difficult to write every band/artist that i like, its easier to tell you what i dont like, modern metal and modern pop, theres a few things from each that i like but as a rule i dont like it.

If you think Metallica and Trivium are better than Sly Stone or the Allman Brothers your out of your mind.

Hmm... I've never listened to Trivium so I can't really say anything about them one way or the other, but that seems like an odd selection of bands to compare to each other. What was the reason for the comparison?

I think I was comparing era's, I must have been. Maybe I was saying there are no Sly Stones anymore or any Allman Brothers anymore, there doesnt seem to be diversity in music anymore, not like there seemed to be in decades gone by. Maybe todays music world is too media driven and the audience dont get a fair deal, its a case of choose one of thses coz thats all there is.

If i was 14 and just getting into music Id feel ripped off by todays music, and Im pretty sure millions of teenagers agree with me and thats why it'll change, when it does change I think the Triviums and the Muses of this world will be the laughing stock they deserve to be, and forever doomed to the bargain basement bin.

I would say if anything there's more musical diversity now than ever before. Saying there are no Sly Stones or no Allman Brothers in modern music is a bit of a non-sequitur. I could turn it around and ask why there were no Duke Ellingtons or Charlie Parkers in the 70s, but what would be the point? Just because the 70s didn't produce the same kinds of good music as earlier decades doesn't mean that the 70s didn't produce great music. The same is true of comparing the 70s to the present.
