    "Baby, it's Cold Outside" is not about date rape.
    The Trans Siberian Orchestra is the second worst thing that's ever happened to Christmas music.
    "Wonderful Christmas Time" is the worst thing that's ever happened to Christmas music.
    For Christmas music I stick with Bing, Frank, Dean, Nat and Perry.

    Have you read the rumors going around that David Lynch is currently in the process of raising funds to make a film about Robert Johnson?

    I mean, idk. But I would certainly enjoy a well crafted dramatization.
    @WorzelG , there is already a Cobain biopic? I've never heard of or seen one.

    only good Journey song:



    It's kinda hard at times. And the video is absurd, part. the keyboard stuck to the outdoor wall of a building.

    That ain't bad but I prefer "Lights" and "Who's Crying Now".

    A band I like, Crippled Black Phoenix, did a really good cover of one of their pre-Perry songs.

    Nah, "Wheel in the Sky" is great too...

    I don't get all this Journey "hate", they sure where bland but they had good songs and from the 70's Pop perspective they are more than ok, there are worse bands...

    I had no idea they did the original of this song! Just listened. Always thought it was somebody else. I think I've only heard covers of it. Agreed, great song.

    Thanks to "The Sopranos" i fell in love with that song, even one of the greatest series of all time uses Journey twice!

    I just feel like there’s so much bollocks, lies, misinformation about Kurt Cobain it would be nigh on impossible to get any truth out of it!
    Although I have to say one angle that would be more interesting to me would be to tell the story from a band perspective, Courtney Love got her face so emmeshed in the whole thing and made it all about her and their shitty love story (if you call getting up the duff and then marrying because of it like it was the fucking 1950s or something anything to do with love) you wouldn’t think there was a band at all

    Are there any popular covers of Wheel In The Sky? I even googled and nothing comes up outside of some that I e never heard.

    And yeah, that’s a cool tune.

    i mean, it's a gus van sant movie, part of his death trilogy along with elephant and gerry. it's moody and upsetting but beautifully done. i've had a crush on michael pitt forever so i'll at least try to watch anything with him in it. it's definitely worth watching but it's not gonna make you feel good.

    IDK if I've said this already but here goes: Taylor Swift's music is LEAGUES ahead of the vast majority of overplayed, lifeless, safe radio-pop that has come out over the last few years.

    Low's "The Great Destroyer" is just as good as any sacred untouchable rock record...

    Their new album is better than The Great Destroyer. It's fucking unreal how good it is.

    yeah, i keep going back to double negative and it blows me away every time. really hoping someone gets it for me on vinyl for x-mas or my b-day!

    i got into them when the great destroyer was their newest release, so i saw them tour on it twice, and they were incredible both times.

    Yeah, Double Negative is just amazing. I've listened to it constantly since it came out. Such a beautiful album. I was lucky enough to see them live when they played in Indianapolis in March. It was a great and intimate show, and I even got to talk to Alan for a bit afterwards.

    I can’t stand Eddie Vedder - his martyr / Jesus complex is nauseating. I think this interview here is one of the worst I’ve ever read, Kurt Cobain was always slagging Pearl Jam off and then when he dies he has this turn the other cheek attitude that is sick-making! (To be fair the interviewer ridiculously overdramatises the exchange). I just want to tell him to get the fuck over himself

    Then he borrows my lighter and starts burning the cork from the wine bottle we've just emptied and starts making up his face, drawing dark circles around his eyes, and a cross on his forehead. "This is going to make you look ever so weird," Gullick tells him. "Let me be as weird as I fuckin' like," Eddie says. "It's my fuckin' life."
    Inadvertently metal as fuck.

    The Black Keys are massively overrated. Heard "Howlin' For You" at Applebees, stupid, stupid song. Black Keys, The White Stripes, all that 00's retro garage rock is lame.

    The White Stripes were great, but the Black Keys are one of those bands i could live without, so boring and generic...

    It's funny, but I agree. I love the White Stripes and I figured I'd love Black Keys as well since they make similar music. For a while I dug them, but now every time one of their songs comes up in my playlist I skip it. I think I'm just over them. Also, they're so freaking boring live. I saw them when Cage the Elephant opened for them and I was so bored. That's the only show where I didn't stick around the encore.

    Jack White is someone who has experimented with his sound, and has written some great songs, whether you like his "retro" style or not, he's a talented guy.
    The Black Keys are just plain "retro": no hooks, nothing memorable, just retro style generic rock.

    I kind of get where you are coming from, but to be fair, he was a shy young man who, overnight, was the biggest rock star in the world and hailed by fans and the media as the spokesman of his generation. That was a real mindfuck and he probably was just trying to adjust.
