I always think to myself, whats worse?.... Classic rock douchebags who think all good music ended in 1979, that all punk and alterative rock sucks and that REO Speedwagon are musical geniuse's OR elitist indie, Pitchfork clowns who try to listen to the dullest, most mind numbingly horrible, obnoxious, annoying and intentionally crappy music imaginable in order to maintain an artificial hipster image and cringe at the mere sight of any band that shows some signs of talent, while claiming to have very diverse taste in music... It's a tough call.

What best elements?


Anyway, i'm one of the biggest Zep fans here, i don't feel compelled to rub Led Zeppelin in everyone's faces... And of course most people here hate them anyway, not that i'm going to make a big thread complaining about it.

But that being said, i will get compelled to get involved when someone gets too carried away with Zep bashing, especially when it's someone who praises bands that i for the most part despise.

It's like when indie jerks bash BoC or any band whose first album predates 1981, i'll make a crack about the uber crappiness of Modest Mouse, it works every time since all indie fans like them and i will never ever understand why.

Heck, when I discovered Big Band, I went nuts. LOL. And that stuff was 60 years old. But it was new to me, so I was excited about it. I'd always had a peripheral ear when it came to that genre, hearing bits and pieces here and there. When I started persuing it, preto, brand new music. LOL.

As far as classic rock, it's just like any other genre. Listen to enough of it, and you get bored. Start looking for alternatives. There's always going to be someone discovering classic rock, and being hyped up about it.
Agreed... Though i never try to listen to too much of one genre at a time... I had a few punk phases, and metal ones.. And i listen to a lot of alternative and prog, in equal measures.... Recently i have been getting into funk (*points to avatar*) and jazz, due to my newfound bass fixation... In general i like to mix it up... For example i listened to some Hawkwind, Radiohead, Parliament, PJ Harvey, Blue Oyster Cult, Bill Evans Trio, Van Der Graaf Generator, Arcade Fire and Red Hot Chili Peppers today.


Of course there was i time when i listened to nothing but nu metal and post grunge.... But we all started out with questionable musical tastes, it's a part of growing up.

I have listened to lots of New Zealand indie today, afterall it's the best indie in the world. I also listened to some Radio Birdman and Electric Eels.

Their is no such thing as questionable music taste and once people understnad that the world will be a better place.

I live in NZ, but I'm not much into indie. I never knew that NZ indie had a good reputation but that's quite interesting.

Yeah man, NZ has some awesome indie, it's extremely diverse. And local shows have mammoth energy.

It's almost a sin to say I like NZ music around my friends though, they think that anything New Zealand is half-arsed, so they'll just crank up Pearl Jams latest efforts

Losers. Hiu, do your friends have the same sort of variety in music as you, or are they like mine and have their ears nailed only to the radio.
