I mean, you don't hear people spewing this much venom toward Fugazi. Is it because they're girls? And girls are supposed to be pretty and sweet and nice? And not nasty and loud and painful? Actually, one might argue that they got MORE positive press and attention precisely because they ARE girls. Y...

I'm planning on buying "Fox Confessor" soon, primarily on the recommendations here. I got "Twin Cinema" (New Pornographers) and fucking LOVE that record, and am especially fond of Neko's songs on the CD. I was listening to some samples of her stuff on itunes, and noticed she remi...

I didn't see the show, and (ignoring order and focusing stricly on inclusion), I'd remove Judas, AC/DC, and Kiss from that list. I'd add "Walk" by Pantera, "One" by Metallica, and "46 & 2" or "Aenima" by Tool. I'd change "The Number Of The Beast"...

Black Sabbath is awesome, but Ozzy fucking sucks.


I read or heard this somewhere (very possibly on this site) that if you think about it, in the Sabbath songs, Ozzy basically sings along with Iommi's riffs for the melodies.

Hmmmmmm.....

"Crazy Train" isn't so much about Ozzy as it is Randy Rhoades. That live version is frekkin' killer. jaimoe - I've looked far and wide for the complete list and can't find it. Vh1's website....sucks, really. Pretty soon someone's gonna write it up on another site and then I can add it to t...

Once again, the music companies have no clue and must be dragged kicking and screaming into modern commerce. Apple showed them how viable and profitable digital sales could be and they want even more now. Jobs doesn't owe them a damned thing; in fact, they owe him for folks like me who buy off of it...

Back to REM... (and I'm over 30) This is hard for me, because I'm an Athens boy. They are, of course, given God-like reverence in this town (and to their credit, they are still intensely active in social and charitable organizations in Athens, often with little or no fanfare.)
