Nickelback? Are you f*cking serious? I'm gonna let you justify yourself so please explain to me why the hell are they your favourite band? Thou shall not listen to Nickelback!

Back on-topic, loving some Dropkick Murphys so far with their latest album, Going Out In Style. GOIS definitely has a more feeling good atmosphere compared to the other albums.

Opinion? dozingoff.gif

I have many to be honest. Foo Fighters, Oasis, Velvet Revolver, Guns N Roses (original line-up) AC/DC, Tupac and Eminem. I have more but I just can't of think them all at the moment. I'll add more later.

My favourite artists change pretty much from day to day, or more realistically week to week. At the moment it's Sleigh Bells. I heard a few songs from them a while back, thought "meh" and moved on. I've just come back to them and I'm in love with the sound. I don't think I can ever go to Brooklyn because it's obviously not as cool of a place as it is in my head.

Indeed what is wrong with Nickleback? If you're going to say that a band is rubbish at least give a reason.

Sorry, I forgot where I was posting. It most certainly wasn't supposed to be a joke about how pointless it is to point out that something's just an opinion when we're talking about music because, y'know, it's all subjective.

I do dislike Nickelback though, but that's just because they don't excite me very much. Too much of a paint-by-numbers pop rock feel for me.

What's "wrong" with any band who build their entire career on poorly rehashing utterly unoriginal ideas? I won't talk about it in terms of "good" or "bad", as they're loaded and suggest a degree of personal opinion, but Nickelback are utterly devoid of originality on every conceivable level. They are to, say, Alice In Chains, what Killswitch Engage's "The End of Heartache" is to In Flames' "The Jester Race"- an unfunny pastiche, completely formulaic and without even so much of a speck of the creativity or inventiveness that graced their chief influences.

Metric, Simple Minds, Rilo Kiley, Mother Mother, Feist, Noah and the Whale, and The Cure.

Those are my personal favorites as of right now though, as they usually tend to change every year or so for me.

What a narrow-minded comment. What's wrong with listening to multiple genres? I probably listen to just about any music genre going so one minute it could be Rolling Stones, Who, G&R, RHCP, and then next minute it could be some Atmosphere, Eminem etc...

Favorite Band - Feeder

I've been listening to Feeder since I heard "Seven Days in the Sun," the first time I played Gran Turismo 3. An extremely underrated band, they formed in the nineties but struggled to pick up the recognition they deserve as the industry focused on Blur and Oasis. Despite the lack of mainstream success and the death of their drummer John Lee (The death inspired most of the material for the album Comfort in Sound.) the welsh act have continued to produce quality music.

I can relate to a lot of Feeder's music and frontman Grant Nicholas is in my opinion one of the best song writers out there.



Favorite Singer - Rick Astley

In my opinion, Rick Astley is one of the UK's most understated talents. His voice is rich yet pure and I have nothing but respect for the man who put family ahead of fame when he quit during the early 90's. Obviously he is still about doing some tours, but I'd love to see nothing more than for him to release a new album following last year's single Lights Out.

For singers, it would have to be Freddie Mercury. I find his voice to be f*cking inspirational, his singing was just incredible.

But for my favorite band it would have to go to Alice in Chains, Cantrell's guitar work meshed perfectly with Staley's vocals, the moodiness in the band's music and singing has really managed to catch my attention and keep it for some time now. Layne also had a hell of a voice too, very distinctive, and quite powerful, but I still have to rate Freddie Mercury higher.

It's a shame some of this talent is no longer with us. At least we still have their tracks to remember them by.
