    Pizza Power is the shit! That song was even featured in the Turtles in Time and Hyperstone Heist games from Konami. I even bought the Pizza Power 7" that came out last year on Record Store Day.

    Though—I'm a pretty big TMNT fan too.

    I lost a lot of respect for Led Zeppelin after I read an article about the number of times they borrowed from other artists. I was surprised that they won their plagiarism lawsuit. I listened to the Spirit song and Stairway to Heaven was a blatant ripoff of it. It's ironic that Jimmy Page used to complain about other musicians stealing his riffs-- like the pot calling the kettle black. Maybe this is why Robert Plant is focusing on his solo projects and he turned down the Zeppelin reunion. Also, Plant is a Christian and Zeppelin does have some connections to Satanism. Page was obsessed with Aleister Crowley and he actually bought his house in Scotland.

    Here’s a hot/drunk take. The Arctic Monkeys’ AM record is all time top-50. But aside from that, they kind of suck (save for a couple cool tunes on Humbug).

    From what I understand a lot of their songs are taken from old blues riffs. I'm okay with that. They still had to develop them. Best rock n' roll band of all-time.

    Songs that fade out at the end are just lazy. I hate that shit.

    i've only done that with one or two songs ever, and i've found that it resonates pretty well emotionally. it gives the feeling that the song could potentially go on forever. i don't think it's effective with pop songs, but certain pieces of music that fade out leave you without resolution, and i kind of like that. but i agree that most​ of the time, it does not work.

    Couldn't agree more

    Just one example that bugs me every time, Go to Sleep by Radiohead, song fades out during a guitar solo and right when Colin starts walking on bass. I don't get it

    while fade outs are a sin, that's worse. I can think of a handful of songs that do that where it's like "oh it's on now" and then it just fades away.

    Agreed, there are definitely instances where it's done well creatively. Just seems like the majority of the time it's done because they didn't quite know how to end the song

    Ceremony by The Cult is a good album.

    Not sure why it gets so much scorn.

    I really like Whitesnake, mainly the big hits everyone knows. I wouldn't call it maturity per se, but Coverdale's voice on songs like "Here I Go Again" and "Is This Love" has more soul and depth than the Bon Jovi's and Poison's of the world at the time. I can understand the accusations of them selling out when those songs hit big, but it was so perfectly timed with the glam-metal stuff filling the airwaves that a band who started out as a more direct hard-blues group transitioning to a more commercial sound makes them less a fashion victim than other younger bands who stuck themselves to that "hair band" label. Plus looking at the musicians they had over the years, from Jon Lord to Steve Vai to Guy Pratt, shows that Coverdale did place a high premium on musicianship.

    I didn't realize that one of their earliest hits was a cover of the R&B classic "Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City".

    I saw a joint Whitesnake /Def Leppard show and Whitesnake were by far the better live act IMO. Also I was due to see them in June, but, alas it’s been cancelled. But yes I like them too

    Def Leppard is cool, too. I mean, the one-armed drummer alone is badass. I feel like they also wrote and executed their songs better than a lot of the other hair bands did. And their sound is so distinct. You immediately know it's Def Leppard.

    Yeah... I guess I really don’t give a shit about one tweet where Sascha may or may have not said something slightly homophobic either.

    No such thing as slightly homophonic.

    Love their first four albums, great albums from that genre. I also really liked Slang too, their attempt to update their sound for the 1990's. One of the members even wears a NIN shirt in the CD booklet.

    I think Phil Anselmo is a terrible singer and he kind of ruins Pantera for me.
