You can pretty much dump all mumble rap in here too. Theyíre all so indistinguishable and interchangeable that it doesnít matter which one Iím talking about

Also I think most of Madonnaís success was due to talented producers like Nile Rodgers. Sheís been riding the wave of inertia ever since because teenage white girls loved her music in the 80s and will buy whatever she makes and attend her concerts. Itís why she can drop garbage albums but make hundreds of millions of dollars on tours.

I think that's pretty much how all artists from the 70s and 80s (and soon, 90s) operate now. Just a new greatest hits tour every 2-3 years and a new album is just a pretext to have a different name for the tour and an additional song.

Ha it's cool, I love TR but literally no project involving Maynard of TOOL et al infamy clicks for me. There's the occasional song, and people whose work I respect and others whose opinions I respect are into it, but it just doesn't happen for me.

Pearl Jam. A band for people who thought U2 weren't pretentious enough. Cunts.

Tool. A band for people who thought Pink Floyd and U2 weren't pretentious enough. Cunts.

For Madonna, I loved Ray of Light thanks to the William Orbit production. It was interesting seeing Madonna of all people jump on the progressive house bandwagon, getting remixed by Sasha.



But for stuff I don't get... mumble rap has gotta be a definite. Or for EDM, how Marshmello got to be so huge, guy just seemed like the dollar store version of Deadmau5, except he doesn't even have the knowledge of dance music Deadmau5 has.

What ended up doing it for you?

I didn't hate them, but didn't much like them for years until my old band wanted to do covers of Bored and My Own Summer, at which point I became a big fan.

i think i associated the alt-metal genre with cathartic teenage angst in my formative years and deftones really didn't do it for me then despite the shoegaze and post-hardcore influences. looking back, i'm not sure if i ever ended up giving them a fair chance but change and pink maggit back to back sealed the deal for me

Deftones, Mastodon, Opeth, Tool and Foo Fighter for rock based music. Especially Foo Fighters, which just sounds like the most boring rock possible.

Rap wise probably Pusha T and the Clipse. Daytona was a banger due to production alone but Pusha is as average as average gets flow wise, has a boring ass voice, and his lyrics are kinda shit. Dude's wordplay is full of dad joke energy.

Foo fighters for sure for me as well. It's like they set out to make the most generic boring ass rock music they could, even shit like nickelback stands out more, as at least that's cheesy as fuck all the way through. foo fighters is just forgetable all around.

I know this is like the music of choice of gen Xers who never got into indie rock in the mid 2000's, but for the life of me I couldn't pick a Foo Fighters song out of a crowd of generic rock songs. I know I must've heard them a million times but it goes in one ear and out the other.

nirvana had their time in the sun, i have some small amount of nostalgia for nevermind; being left with my friend and the trashy babysitter when their parents had ragers with that blaring from the garage. nirvana fans seem pretty rare these days. just another band posers wear tees of because of the iconic graphic design. saw maison margiela released a tee that is just the modern lovers logo without the band name underneath for $250 earlier in the year  :lol

unlike the modern lovers, and many other rock groups i dont think nirvana or the foo fighters have aged well at all.

90's rock in general hasn't aged well besides stuff like Smashing Pumpkins tbh. It was on the cusp of 00 flabby rock.

I do like Foo Fighters more than Nirvana musically.

Everlong is better than 90% of Nirvana songs.

That said I get the criticism towards Foo Fighters.

I'm not a big fan by any means but Madonna gets props for the longetivity alone. There was ups and downs but the string from Ray of Life to Confessions on a Dance Floor (up to 2005) was top tier as far as being a pop star goes. The music itself is maybe the least important part in that comparison to MJ it's more to do with her success, business acumen, her work discipline, a talent to pick surrounding talent, a strong flair for visual presentation and a couple of other things.

Otherwise I'm a bit like Transhuman, I don't really pay attention to stuff I don't care for... Oasis I guess ? Then again I don't care much for the Beatles either.

Oh yeah and Johnny Hallyday and Michel Sardou for the provincial mention that no one will get in this globalised age.

Sardou is amazing because the dude shat out a never ending stream of so-bad-its-good dreck with a heavy tinge of old fashioned French jingoism (bemoaning in no particular order Arab Oil Checks, Anti-Americanism, Criticism of Colonialism, the Concorde Crash, the Soviets, etc...) with the videos to boot but he still surfs on the success of Don't ever call me again France (about the cruise boat, the one good song in that reactionary trend he made) and tried and true wedding party banger Les lacs du Connemara.

For grunge, I've always preferred AiC and Soundgarden over Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and STP. Probably because I came from a metal background in that year and preferred the harder sounds of them compared to their contemporaries.

eh, honestly I've been so depressed about the current state of Metal, I mostly listen to backlog stuff. Thankfully it's such an abundant genre that there are still bands from the late 90's and early 2000's that I can still discover. I have so been revisiting some artists I used to rock back in the day, but stopped for whatever reason and catching up on their newer stuff I haven't heard. Theory In Practice and Pestilence are two examples.

 I went through a big Finnish melo-death phase in the past year, I saw Wolfheart (they opened for Swallow the Sun) a couple of months ago in an embarrassingly tiny venue. They were great.

Lately I've been super into Coroner, a band I've always been aware of but have not given a chance until latrly once my tastes matured to their current state. Really great thrash riffing, reminiscent of RIP era Dave Mustaine, and fantastic lead playing which is rare for old school thrash bands.

This Krypts band is pretty good stuff!

Heh. I got into dance music in the mid 90s, if anything is to blame it's probably Streets of Rage, the school bus driver playing an upstart local dance station (now it's just generic pop), amiga mod music, a friend whose brother lived in London who used to introduce him, and by extension, me, to all that stuff, and another friend who was really into it and made me mix tapes.
