    i don't love youth code, but i at least find them listenable and feel something when i listen to them.

    death grips just do absolutely nothing for me, musically or emotionally, and their bullshit penchant for cancelling shows is just asinine.

    Never understood the Death Grips. As bad as ICP.

    I don't understand the hype around Kendrick Lamer. Granted, I don't really like rap/hip-hop with a few exceptions (Public Enemy, Dre and a few others) but I just don't get what's so amazing about this guy?

    Pitchfork said THIS was from the best album of 2017?

    Can’t get into Kendrick Lamar either. He seems intelligent enough, but his voice isn’t very distinctive. The music/production does nothing for me. Pretty much gave up on him as I’ve got a hard time finding things to like from Kendrick.

    So i know Im gonna piss a lot of people off when i say this but...I dont normally enjoy music pre-1990 's

    Yeah, I know...im limiting my musical journey so to say but that's just how I was.

    Stuff like Bowie, Prince, Deep Purple, Queen, Rush, Zepplin, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Depeche Mode, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Preist...you get the idea

    I just could never get into it, I was born in 96 and the only music I really heard came from my dad, which consisted of Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, STP.....and for some odd reasons, Pattsie Cline and Maddona

    I tried to give them all a chance, but because I was born so late, what was called "heavy" back then (not Prince or Bowie mind you) just seems so.......light to me

    I still have great respect of them and if it wasn't for a lot of them, I wouldn't have some of my favorite bands like AiC, NiN, Deftones, Soundgarden, MCR or Linkin Park....so I don't Dislike them...they just aren't for me

    Humble, in the context of great hip hop from all eras, is not a great example of Kendrick's best work. Has some great lines & a good overall message.

    But Humble, in the context of the utter shit that makes up 85% of mainstream hip hop these days, and the fact that, as a commercial single, THAT song was able to break through worldwide and become a monster hit , is what makes it an important footnote in 2017.

    While Kendrick is prolly best listened to in longform if you want to be converted (seriously give yourself the time, sit down and listen to To Pimp a Butterfly or Good Kid Maad City in full with the lyrics nearby bc I agree he is hard to follow vocally), here are some random tracks that show why he's the best mainstream rapper out these days:

    (skip to 3:03 if you want to get right to when he goes off)








    Those are the best songs off Damn imo. Loyalty with Rihanna is a the current big single they're pushing, but there's no lyricism of merit there.

    Older quality material:






    (love the jazziness here and all over TPaB...and Kendrick's fast flow here is crazy)

    Was born in '78 and with the exception of prince and bowie, i agree. Classic rock radio killed zeppelin for me, full stop. No worries from me as you seem to understand their influence. However if this is really a hard line in the sand for you, based on a timeline, 96'? I would recommend getting past cheese ball radio tripe as there is more music than can claim to know that is absolutely stellar throughout time.

    Zeppelin can never be overplayed. It's like watching Cheers in re-runs. It will never get old. Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Sabbath, Priest, KISS, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Montrose, man the 70's was fuckin' awesome.

    I like and love some of that music but a guy at work with his radio killed it as does most radio channels. I could care less if I hear another LZ, AC/DC or Aerosmith song again. They also play the same 4 Queen songs over and over. They have more than Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions, Fat Bottomed Girls and Another One Bites The Dust.

    ZLX in Boston plays the same 3-4 Doors, Zeppelin, Queen, etc. songs on a loop. I think they play every song from Boston's first album daily.

    i'm a casual fan at best, but "fuckin' perfect" by pink (er, p!nk) is one of the greatest songs ever written.

    Ozzy, both solo and with Black Sabbath, sucks a bag of dicks. He sounds like Baby Sinclair from Dinosaurs. Back in Black was Brian Johnson’s only good AC/DC album. He sounds like Elmo on the rest of them.

    Not sure where to post this, but Glenn Hughes should be way more famous than he is.

    I don't think that's controversial at all. In fact, he should be more famous.

    He's very talented, but comes off like a major prima donna in interviews, and even in his performance. Then again that could apply to a lot of people we love just as dearly too for their talents. He made a rather rude and off-hand remark about Gary Moore not that long after his death which soured me on his character.

    Really? In the interviews I've seen (and I've seen only a handful) he seemed like a nice guy.

    I wish I could remember what he said or what specific interview it was but I know it was for Classic Rock magazine, 5 or maybe 6 years ago. He talked a bit about his friendship with David Bowie, during his "Thin White Duke" period, lamenting a bit that after Bowie got clean he was out of his life and social circle.

    I'm sure this will rile up some music purists, especially those who are fond of the 80s. I believe that Men at Work is a way better band than.... the Police. They just had better songs.

    The Police are terrible. Sting is even more cringeworthy. Bad 80's pop rock.
