dumbest ever.... everything...
Anything by Offspring post Self Esteem and Come Out and Play (they were fun tunes!). Inane lyrics and repetitive riffs.
Negatives? Satisfaction? That's as great a rock n roll song as was ever written. And it's the first great rock and roll riff (outside of chuck berry). Man, if you don't like Satisfaction, you don't like rock.
Poppa stoppa..are you Madonna`s biggest fan,or what?
You all make me laugh..this tread is stupid...
without Iron Butterfly,Black Sabbath,BTO,Guess-Who, etc and those riffs...and many more others..hard rock-heavy metal- wouldn`t exist...
You guys don`t get bored...have a life,do something...or go to Brittney Spears concerts...Poppa Stoppa Hoppa-Hoppa....one more Q:
when you were born ?...Yesterday?...Than I give you an advice:
First you have to walk,get rid of dippers,start thinking,listen,go to school ,learn...then speak ...
Then come back here and appologize for saying what you said about Sabbath.
(trying to reply to this quote means that you have some salsa instead of some brain located between your ears )
No ofence here... just do your homework ...
my sherona (sp?)
Metal Gods by Judas Priest.
I still like the song and it's fun to play.
I'm right there with you, bro.
I like, and have played, all kinds of music, rock, jazz, blues, r&b, country, classical, and just about everything in between. I love music. Always have. What I don't like is stuff that isn't musical, that's just about posing. Britney Spears (to me) isn't about music, she's about lingerie. (love lingerie, don't get me wrong!) Madonna wasn't about music, I always thought she was the best ad man that ever lived, she knew how to package a product and sell it. Now she's about cougar lingerie.
80s hard rock to me, was also just about packaging, a saturday morning cartoon version of music that had come before. I know a lot of people on this board like that stuff, and what you like is what you like, everybody has their own sensibility and tastes. For me, it was never my cup of tea. Never even really recognized it as a beverage, I don't hear the music in it. Metal I don't get it all, all it sounds like to me is how fast can you play stuff, which gets very boring very quickly. It does seem like the people into metal do treat it as a serious pursuit, so that's more interesting to me than big hair music, but the actual sound of metal never interested me.
So, again. Black Sabbath. Dumb. Big hair 80s rock. Dumber.
Okay? Well researched enough for you?
Hahahaha!! How could I forget Kiss?? It's all over for me. Kiss wins.... or loses.
Let's face it, any riff that made it onto the radidio can't be dumb.
Not a big fan of modern radidio personally, so must politely disagreegree
"Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight" by Spinal Tap always the riff I play when in Guitar Center
Don't kill me, but.... smoke on the water is so lame!!! sorry, I know some guys were drinking' beer, getting stoned and had some good times in the seventies when this came out, but I still think it's lame...
it very easily can! just because the majority likes something doesn't make it great or good quality. ...come on now!
Things that made it big, but sucked or is bad for ya!
Any kind of religious oppression
Put your stylus down anywhere on a Styx, Foreigner, or Kansas album. Most of the generic nu-metal or whatever you want to call it these days, too, is full of dull copycat riffs.
Anything by the following.....
The grunge genre as a whole (save for Alice In Chains & Soundgarden)
unga chaka, unga chaka
I'm hooked on a feeling....
- or -
Yummy, Yummy, Yummy
I've got love in my tummy....
- or -
at the Y-M-C-A......
Just go to the sound clips section and listen to any medium gain crunch sound. You will hear the same blues riffs over and over.
Its almost like we're living in a dream world in which no one knows that everyone is playing the same exact riffs. I dont know how else to explain how people can copy these riffs, add them to their little set list of riffs they play for people, and somehow imagine no one hasnt heard them 16 trillion times. You cant take 4 seconds to compose a new lick?
The other is the death Metal crowd.
For the love of all things holy...how many DM clips have you heard that are some guy drooling while hitting his E string, and only his E string, in all sorts of staggered patterns. Gee...wow..I can play an E. I have heard Death Metal songs in which the entire song is this E string chomping.....its like if you gave a monkey a guitar...what would he do? Same thing. (Im talking about the DM forums songs...there are some decent compositions from the top Bands...but it seems the fans only know 1 note)
I feel like splashing cold water on these people faces, slapping them, and screaming...WAKE UP ! There are other notes on the neck you infant...haha.....is this how dumb we have become?
Humans.... there goes the planet.
