Default The rant about music

The one thing that really boils my blood is the perception people have towards music. Especially the rock Genres. Most people feel that If they like a genre like hardcore then that's the only stuff they'll ever like and that's sad. Just because you like bands like Lacuna Coil, Murderdolls, Black Dhalia Murder, Every Time I die..etc doesn't mean you have to automatically hate bands like Dashboard Confessional, Brand new, Taking Back Sunday, The Ataris, etc from a genre of emo-screamo. I mean I understand everyone has certain tastes But at least listen before you judge. Ill be honest I love all kinds of rock. From a couple Songs from Barenaked Ladies to most-all the songs from Disturbed. I like a sum 41 song, a blink song a good charlotte song..hell I even like 1 country song (it's me and my g/f song) and i like some rap. My favorite stuff now is Emo. Well Emocore with From Autumn to ashes. Anyways why I got into this was that a few of my friends on yahoo and in msn were talking about music and how they only like hardcore and i asked "Ever heard of brand new, or From autumn to ashes" they said no and asked if it was any form of emo and of course i said yes and they said that they sucked. They pissed me off. If Joe Schmo said that he likes a genre just because it makes him look cool and he hates everything else then I say he's a god damn pussy who holds himself down simply because he has extreme low self esteem and other things. Of course that is my opinion, I could be wrong

Default Re: The rant about music

Now you're kinda talking Hobo's langauge. I probably have the strangest taste in music of anyone at these forums or well anyone. I listen to ALOT of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Steve Earle, Arlo Guthrie,George Harrison, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. Some Woody Guthrie, Roy Orbison, Lou Reed, Sarah McLaughlin, John Lennon, REM. I've probably left some out. I've always found it to be strange that people say "I don't like pop music" but haven't really got a clue what pop music is. Well at least in my view, it is music aimed at those between the ages of 8 and 18.

Think about it, anyone who says they are interested in R&B music (this modern version of it anyway) and then says they also like pop music is being a fool. As R&B, nowadays is under the blanket of pop music. Same goes for Rap, Punk, Heavy Metal and country. There are artists out there in this world who while they are placed in a certain genre are manufactured or more money driven in the way they make the music. Alot of musical genres are muddled up now, some are partailly invaded by record companies etc. to produce manufactured artists and then say that they are of a certain genre to disguse the attempt of trying to create another teeny-bop sensation. I'd hate do dissapoint any fans out there of that new punk music that has been around the last couple of years, but you are about 20 years too late for it. I'm a country music fan, so I can only really give proper examples from this genre. The likes of Shania Twain, Lee Ann Rimes, Faith Hill and Garth Brooks (circa 95-99) are prime examples of pop-fided country music. There are some people who still fly the flag for real country like Willie Nelson even if he is getting on a bit and younger artists like Toby Kieth. I think that Rodney Crowell though is on to a good thing with his new album, keeping the flag flying.

Sheryl Crow once said of Johnny Cash's American Recordings (and I am paraphrasing)albums that in an age where the music industry was in a place where money was the driving force his American albums showed that making the music for the love of making music could still happen. Let's hope that some newer artists do do that.


I think I may have strayed off the point a lot, but meh. It's a Rant. If theres one thing I can do, its Rant.

Amen Hobo that is a true rant right there and what is emo he asks? Well emo is defined as Emotional Rock and bands in which can fit the genre are Coheed And Cambria, Brand New, Dashboard Confessional, The Ataris, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Further Seems Forever, The Used etc.. and Speaking of Emo im going to say something that may spark some debate. Distrubed's Album Believe after listening to it a few hundred times convinced me that it's a mixture of both christian rock and screamo. The reasons alone are in the 1st four tracks Prayer, Liberate, Awaken, and Believe. Diligently listen to those four tracks if you have the cd and have the time and hopefully you will see my reasoning for that.

Now I progress to just Emo in general now. Every band has a emo sound and/or song done. Either Emo, Screamo, Or Emocore I can point out almost any rock band with an emo song and ill make a small list of 15 now
Adema "Promises"
Brand New "Sic Transit Gloria..Glory Fades"
Disturbed "Mistress"
Finger 11 "One Thing"
Taproot "Fault"
Seether "Broken"
Stone Sour "Bother"
Linkin Park "Pushing me Away"
Smile Empty Soul "Silhouettes"
Tantric "Mourning"
3rd Eye Blind "Jumper"
Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Maps"
Drowning Pool "Fade Away"
Mest "Jaded (These Years)"
Lacuna Coil "Self Deceptions"

Now some of you may wonder why i picked drowning pool, lacuna coil, taproot..well if you listen carefully it's an emo style those styles see the point is emo is apart of 80% of rock..most bands have done an emo song here and there that's why everyone needs to know what Emo really is all about

I hate all these new music genres.

(Not the music, just the creation of new genres)

What ever happened to the days of "Alternative?"

Default Re: The rant about music

I know what you mean but in the 90s especially in the late 90s the era changed to "I hate my parents just leave me alone" to "I love you, I hate you ill never get you out of my mind" or "Ill kill myself if you leave" or even "It's your fault im this way" although I like Emo alot I'd admit some of these bands like Evanescence and others go to far with there whining shit my favorite band Brand New has a song or two I don't like because it's to whiney "Jaws Theme Swimming" and "Play Crack In the Sky" Otherwise Emo is ok. But I do Admit I miss the days of Nirvana and AiC so badly But those days are sadly long gone.

Taproot is emo?

I like all music. I dont really have a favourite genre. Whatever sounds good, I listen to. Sure I get teased for listening to country, old school rock, stuff like that when everyone else I know sticks to the popular genres like rap, rock, heavy metal, but oh well. I'm different. <3

Oh, and Taproot is my favourite band. I spent 60 dollars on their two cd's when I had someone at a video store specially order them in, when I could've got them on the internet for 10 each. But it was worth it. luv them.
