    The ~$20 “taxes and fees” upcharge for a $100 ticket honestly never really bothered me- probably because I’m so used to it by now. And bitch about TM all we want but the website is laid out really well and outside of not being able to secure “in demand” tickets the site/server never crashed or necessarily fucked me over to the point where I hated the experience like some of the smaller ticket places I attempt to purchase at. AXS for example, where who knows WTF algorithm they use for “best seats available” is. Anyways, it’s not so much about the fees but places like StubHub (and later TM for “verifier resale”) that can LEGALLY have hundreds of tickets up for sale prior to any other sale. Discuss(?):

    I figured that it could've easily fit into the actual Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles thread, since it counts something released for home video, with the actual video being played and not just the music itself.

    As for me, I'm always just a sucker for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and 1990s nostalgia so I don't mind at all even in spite of how they looked and sounded, especially considering how it was aimed to the much younger fans at the time. (As I'm also considering the fans that grew up the franchise since 1984.)

    Not to mention, I really do like the song Pizza Power.

    Throwdown was rad and Haymaker was fun as shit.

    More on topic: Rammstein are boring and I just don't understand the adulation.

    I haven't enjoyed a single song of theirs I've heard.

    Their on-stage antics of cumming/pissing all over everything and anal sex is gross. It's fake as hell, sure. It just comes across as immature to me. Reminds me of GG Allin, which is a huge fucking turn-off.

    I'm not gonna argue in this thread but what a misguided and outright ignorant assessment of a valued music band compared to an anarchist piece of shit with no musical merit whatsoever.

    I don't care how fake it is, the idea of getting your genitals out and pissing all over the audience is fucking foul.

    Obviously both bands have very disparate points of view on certain sociopolitical subjects. However, while GG Allin literally defecated on stage and threw it at people, and Rammstein's show is fake, the message there is essentially the same. The scatological aspects of the performance only remind me of GG Allin.

    I think I'm allowed to not like their behaviour in concert.

    You are I just think considering Rammstein in the same vein as a misanthropic, worthless degenerate who used "music" to act like a piece of shit to people and civilization as a whole is misaligned.

    Also @kel @Krazy and @bobbie solo - please, at least watch this (one of their most beautiful ballads and music videos). It translates to “Without You”. Extremely, extremely poignant and beautiful piece of music.



    I'm going to go into the fir trees
    There where I last saw her
    But the evening is throwing a cloth upon the land
    and upon the ways behind the edge of the forest
    And the forest it is so black and empty
    Woe is me, oh woe
    And the birds sing no more

    Without you I cannot be
    Without you
    With you I am alone too
    Without you
    Without you I count the hours without you
    With you the seconds stand still
    They aren't worth it

    On the branches in the ditches
    it's now silent and without life
    And breathing becomes oh so hard for me
    Woe is me, oh woe
    And the birds sing no more


    Without you I cannot be
    Without you
    With you I am alone too
    Without you
    Without you I count the hours without you
    With you the seconds stand still
    They aren't worth it without you

    @Space Suicide @dlb @ManBurning @Conan The Barbarian - feel free to add more stuff they are missing out on. Donaukinder? Vergiss Uns Nicht? Nebel?

    Bands need to stop using 8 string guitars. 95% of the time they end up ripping off meshuggah because playing in low F is limiting.

    My son has taken to asking me to play songs for him that he hears on his school bus. I found I actually really like 'I Gotta Feeling' by The Black Eyed Peas!

    I know, I can’t stand Will I Am, he’s a host on the UKs The Voice and he is really annoying. I think it’s like Stockholm Syndrome, my boys are autistic so when they like something they can become really obsessed and you just have to go with it. Having said that, he was obsessed with Ed Sheeran at one point and Maroon 5 and I still found them unbearable

    Oh good, lol. I was thinking I was going to get shit for it. Lol. Honestly they had been poping up on my YouTube feed. So I checked them out. I never actually heard a song of theirs before, just the name and association with Ilan and JMJ. Some of the songs I was digging.

    Nothing wrong with this.

    Not really a fan, myself. I quite like crushcrushcrush and Oh Star. Aside from that, what I've heard doesn't do all that much for me.

    Funny that you say that. I am kind of digging the newer stuff of there’s, was never a big pop punk fan. So their older material from what I listened to didn’t really appeal to me.

    Paramore is the shit. Best opener NIN has ever had. Haley was pumped to be playing before them and mentioned it two separate times. Tell me when/where and you win a no-prize!

    Manson in '94 was the best opener for NIN that I saw, APC was great too. Does Soundgarden Count?
