    1 hit wonders of the 90's

    Uhm, you nailed the definition of a one-hit-wonder with the Connells and then posted the opposite of it with the Pumpkins... that's a tad confusing.

    Frédéric Chopin

    I honestly cannot fathom how anyone prefers the likes of Mozart over Chopin. There's just so much melancholy and infinite sadness in Billy... uh Frédéric Chopin.

    Slayer (Official Thread)

    Tom looks like a garden gnome without his Santa beard and his weight loss. I hope he's healthy to live a long retirement life with his grandchildren. Compared to the age-resistant Kerry, Tom unfortunately looks deteriorating.

    Metallica (Official Thread)

    I admit that I'm a Mustaine-nuthugger, but I do appreciate Metallica in general. That Kirk Hammett though... still don't get the casting process.

    Slayer (Official Thread)

    Two more Slayer concerts in my home country of Germany. My heart tells me: "Last chance to see the greatest metal band that you know since the 80s, why haven't you booked the tickets yet, you dumb f*ck???" My brain's like: "It's like 300 miles away, you would have to take 2 days off work...

    Megadeth vs. Metallica vs. Mustaine Metallica minus Megadeth

    When I listen to Metallica interviews, I can see how the cerebral Dave Mustaine simply doesn't fit into Metallica. No offense, but Kirk Hammett and Lars Ulrich aren't exactly en par with Mustaine on an intellectual level. Maybe it's all for the best, I don't particularly like Metallica but can...

    Megadeth vs. Metallica vs. Mustaine Metallica minus Megadeth

    Dave Mustaine and Metallica was supposed to be a match made in heaven but didn't work out in the end due to Mustaine's antics. The result was two awesome metal bands in Metallica and Megadeth. But what if Mustaine would have shown some restraint earlier and remained with Metallica? We would...

    Music you've outgrown....?

    Here's an idea: let's shake it up a tad by adding the question "which music have you grown in to?" Used to hate Kriss Kross, but they are kind of a guilty pleasure of mine now.

    The Prodigy (Official Thread)

    I got the first 3 albums and haven't listened to a single song after the 3rd. Should probably do that cause they used to be pretty damn great. As far as I'm concerned, electronic music was invented by Kraftwerk and polished by Prodigy, nothing else needed.

    Guns N' Roses vs. Van Halen

    Isn't that also true for the great ACDC debate? If you were to create a best-of album, most of the songs would be from the short Bon Scott-era. Brian Johnson was part of way more albums and was commercially more successfull, but never quite reached Bon Scott's level. In terms of quantity and...

    Music you've outgrown....?

    When I started playing guitar, every song I played sounded like Sonic Youth. So I figured, they must be great or else I suck. Turned out that I sucked. More often than not people buy into marketing not the actual music, teenagers are obviously the easiest prey. There's no single reason why a...

    Your last audio cassette purchase

    There can really only be one answer: a blank tape to pirate music with. I remember having had a vinyl and CD collection, but cassette tapes? Nah, they were only ever good for pirating stuff.

    Music you've outgrown....?

    Outgrown... hmm, first band that comes to mind is "Sonic Youth". I thought they were soooo experimental and alternative back then. Can't even listen to most of their songs anymore because they're just bad. "Marylin Manson" is another example for the same reasons that Black Dahlia had mentioned.
