The following is a selection from 1969's Captain Beefheart avant-blues masterpiece, Trout Mask Replica. The song is "When Big Joan Sets Up." It is amazing. If you don't give it at least a 10 you must have profound mental retardation.

Cream - Crossroads

And now, my attempt to try and get the lowest score. Sad thing is, I like it.

I give you Metropolis by Dream Theater.
4:30 to 4:43 is one of my favorite parts of any song ever.
And what the f*ck is wrong with you people? Cream and Captain Beefheart are awesome. I understand people have their own opinions and I can understand why people wouldn't like Captain Beefheart really but Cream?

| Edit - I'm giving that 5/10. Horrible or not it automatically gets 5 from me for being insane.|

Awesome, I used to listen to Dream Theater a few years ago, then I just kind of forgot about them, time to dig up the old cd's.
Sorry, the quality ain't good.

| Hm, I give it a 7/10. Very mellow, and it did right by Bob's version.|
8/10. The vocals were alright but the guitar playing was awesome. The playing reminded me of Joey Eppard, which brings me to.....
Joey Eppard - Amaze Disgrace
I could only find a non live version on last.fm.

Well I hope you still listened to the song before rating it. Or else this topic would be a complete waste of time. And we wouldn't want that.
Anyway, your song was alright, if you like low-budget punky stuff. Could probably use a melody though, it's not what you'd call catchy. 4/10.
Next - maybe the best song ever written, you decide.

| Maybe I could see the appeal, but not for me. Nothing impressive at all, respectfully. This song however, is brilliant. Prolly my favorite overall Zappa at the moment, Rdnzl.|
Good sh*t! Zappa's the man.
I'll see that and raise you this irritating ditty, sung by his daughter Moon Unit (wha?) no less.

sorry if my post came off blunt. even though i don't like Incubus at all i will still recognize them as great at what they do. i just don't like things too polished, "low budget-punky stuff" as you put it is pretty much all i listen to.
@Esperanto boy: 9/10 i love Frank Zappa and everything associated with him

I had thought to make a thread on that.... but not yet, he gets mentioned here a lot. I was not a fan but was exposed to MUCH of his music...again, by Mr. Earl Root. Earl's favorite artist was probably Zappa. Zappa was clearly not a metal artist, but Earl dedicated whole radio shows to his music and always was interested in collecting ANY recordings he could find, in mint condition, etc...as a record collector and fan
I still wouldn't call myself a fan, but I grew to respect him and give his music a chance versus writing it off as too much jazz and not enough rock and roll.
Didn't hurt that Steve Vai cut his chops performing with Zappa live! He is an amazing guitarist who also reveres Zappa...with first hand experience, so some bias there.
Bears repeating...from me, Incubus is again a stolen name from a much HARDER band that will NEVER be called 'polished', or punk. They were TRUE METAL.
If I am to rate Suicidal Tendencies...in keeping with the theme, I of course, am a long time fan!
Picking up the box set of Miami Vice was a given with me, but Suicidal perform on the show and it's awesome, as always.

I really enjoy Suicidal Tendencies. Their music really conveys a "f*ck you" mood.

SO, from the same band.... Rolling Stones.
This is a demo outtake of Let It Loose, from Exiles on Main Street...review;
I'll further edit with an opinion on above video <G>
EDITing; OK, Richie Kotzen was most notable for his playing in Poison for a time, it was not at the height of their career...however, he was kicked from the band for sleeping with someone else's girl. A similar situation happened with a local band at the time I knew them well.
I haven't followed Poison's career too closely. I'm a casual enjoyer of their music. Can't say I'd heard that one before. For a first timer, sometimes the studio track is a better representation. For me, the live sound loses some of the song tightness that the studio captures. Most often a live performance is very loose, and more fluid of course.

Too old for my age, but what the heck. I love it.
Posted 02 January 2009 - 11:29 AM
I'll let someone comment on the song you picked, but for the record, I wanted to interject that Eric Clapton's other band had a hit with Bell Bottom Blues... One I still love to hear.
Though he covered Cocaine (John Cale <?> track) in the 1970s but he, himself struggled with it, glad he was able to get off the drug.
Posted 03 January 2009 - 08:55 AM
listen to the whole songgg
haha, it grows on you. love the beat and the lyrics.
Posted 03 January 2009 - 09:32 AM
Oh, right. 7/10, I suppose. Mellow, kinda catchy.
Indie band from Vancouver. Not their best song, and a really, really crappy video.
Posted 03 January 2009 - 09:39 AM
nonetheless: catchy, poppy, and decent lyrics.
6 and one half/10
i'm f*cking in love with this song/album/band. perverse lounge tunes. kinda like the muzak they'd play in hell's waiting room...y'know, before the eternal damnation...
