Hey guys,



Music really sucks these days.


I mean, seriously.


I don't what's wrong with the music industry, but it seems to me they are just getting crappier.

I can't stand those stupid singles they play on the radios anymore.

So, I was wondering if anyone knew of any band that sings and sounds like Muse's hit songs, like "Hysteria", "Time is running out", and "Plug in Baby". And by that I don't mean songs within their new album featuring "Knights of Cydonia"....

...which means that I would be delighted if you were to recommend rock songs, especially those that share the "Muse" traits: rebellious, energetic, and not trashy(like those "I love satan" rock or "I want to die" variety). I am amused by Steelheart, and will even accept songs similar to "Painkiller" by Judas Priest.

But I am not into songs like "Paranoid Android"(too dreamy), AC/DC (don't like vocal), Sum41 and their high-school-band-like-variety-that-always-sings-about-immatu re-stuff. Pop would be fine, but the thing is, I abhor idiotic repetitive songs like hey-ya and gimme gimme. Jazz is okay. Hip Hop- let's not get into that.

By the way, I do have albums from extremely famous rock bands as Led Zeppelin, Queen, Iron Maiden, etc and so it would help me a lot if you would refrain giving out those "legendary" songs, because I most likely have them. But I you would like to direct attention to some underrated songs by these legends, feel free.


Oh, last but not least, I really, really appologize if you were offended by anything that I've said above. I never mean to piss anyone off. It's just that I do get pretty emotional when it comes to judging music because I am very interested in the topic.

Thanks.

Didn't like either of them, sorry. But keep trying. I mean, Cypress Hill I listen, so there's bound to be something, eh?

Did you listen to the whole songs or turn them off after 15 seconds?

The Eminem track is more of a story, so if you want, skip the opening chorus, but you really should hear the verse if you want actually give the song a chance. Skipping through rock songs to see if they're any good is fine, but it's kinda different with raps IMO.

When blended along with a good music, Eminem's songs can be enjoyable. 'Stan' and 'Lose Yourself' are examples of such.

I can only be fond of his songs which contain a dark atmosphere like 'Cleaning Out My Closet' and 'Way I Am' rather than the cynically witty ones. His lyrics are always honest, which give him a plus.

Pardon my Queen's English, but that is complete and utter bull. You just confirmed every word I said about you viewing music superficially.

I won't recommend squat until you promise me you'll listen to the songs I recommend all of the way through. Jeez, not even *ROCK* should be judged in 15-second intervals -- *no* music should.

It's the age, Aro. He'll get older and understand that there's more to music than electro guitar. It's all about the image for him right now.

"Especially awe-inspiring is the fact that any single brain is made up of atoms that were forged in the hearts of countless stars billions of years ago... These atoms now form a conglomerate – your brain – that can not only ponder the very stars that gave it birth but can also think about its own ability to think and wonder about its own ability to wonder. With the arrival of humans…the universe has suddenly become conscious of itself. This, truly, is the greatest mystery of all." - Rama

Yes, I agree. All my grandparents listen to rap, since they have realised how utterly stupid rock is.

Actually, you are right in a way over there. The older I get, the MORE distant from rap I grow. AND I've gotten into Jazz recently.

You have a very good point. I didn't appreciate music until 18 or so.

I know I don't fully appreciate music, not all genres anyway. I do appreciate rap, rock and even dance (techno, trance, etc.), but perhaps not classical, soul, heavy metal, and a few others. I know in my mind that a lot of skill goes into each genre, even though if don't enjoy it. I don't know if I'm even sure on what appreciating music really means... But I'm 17, so we'll see.

Kidding about the 15 second thing? Didn't sound like it. The inclusioon of a smiley often helps, or something to that effect.

Bullshit. I've mostly outgrown mainstream music and I'm only 14. And most of my friends don't even know I listen to half the music I listen to, so I don't think it's for the image either.

Similarly there are college graduates who think Shakira is the greatest thing since sliced bread. So, I beg your pardon, but the age related to music appreciation thing is complete and utter bull.

It was just a generalisation. It seems to apply to most of your friends anyway, so it can't be "complete and utter bull".

Wow, you're 14, I really would've guessed older by your posts so thumbs up, I guess? Also, I've heard every single 14-year old I've ever met say this, so you're bound to ask what mainstream music really is if nobody listens to it? Okay I'm generalising a bit but you get the idea. But the deal is, it seems, that all people who think about the music and are musical themselves tend to be more unique in tastes of music. I've never met someone who played an instrument but only bought cd's that had high chart positions, if you get my language.

But come on, tell me what you listen to, then. I say, everyone under the age of about 28 listens to at least some music for image reasons. I know I listen to Black Sabbath partly for image reasons. Same goes for Deep Purple, Tool and Jimi Hendrix. It's not that I don't ALSO just like the music, but I kind of want to identify with other people who like them or I just have to listen to them because of their significance, as is with Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Jimi Hendrix.
I think with David Bowie there's nothing of an image issue included. I just adore the music and usually the lyrics, I love his voice and everything. I rarely talk about David Bowie with anyone except my brother-in-law who is a musician and first got me to listen to Bowie. I also don't wish to wear a David Bowie t-shirt, nor wish to declare for all new connaissances that I listen to his music. Except now I'm stating it here since it's a part of the discussion. But this is how I think I distinguish whether I like it for purely the music or partly for image.

And I can tell that my dad doesn't listen to anything for image reasons. He listens to country & folk music so, I mean, who'd want to have an image for listening to country? You know when you're old when you:
a) Listen to country music
b) Listen to it because you actually like it

I'm a socially obtuse person, so when it comes to musical preference influenced socioculturally, I listen to it to make me look half-way normal and sensible. When I was in Middle School, I would say "Oh I listen to Creed"...I still, to the this day, only know one song of theirs. I guess I can say I do listen for an "image", but it's to protect me from being taunted or teased. Most music I gravitate listening to either has an avant-garde/experimental edge to it, or really good authentic, stylistic beat to it, which isn't like your normal "I listen to Alternative Rock" person. I can listen to stuff like Steve Reich's minimalism, George Antheim, Lou Harrison...
country rock
Radio country rock strongly dissuades me to listen to it, but I should drop my prejudice to it...I still don't listen to much today.However, I've listened to My Morning Jacket (not exactly it, but strong influence in it). They're cool. Oh, and I can enjoy Johnny Cash. So I guess I'm not 100% hostile to the genre.

Pop Music's been boring me lately, though. I've been trying to relisten to genres I've neglected for so long. I'm exploring free jazz and Ornette Coleman.

But, it's really cool though...I got to learn more about Stravinsky, Bach, Mozart, Wagner...weeeee...The INFORMATION AGE RULES!

I don't really think about what I'm listening to, I just listen to what I like. I mean, there's a lot of stuff that you just wouldn't expect a normal person in their early teens to listen to (but then again I'm contradicting myself here ) but really there's also plenty of mainstream stuff that I enjoy and love.

I think the question here is not really whether younger people tend to listen to things for the image, but rather whether they are less openminded (that was what we started off on anyway, morgoth not liking rap). This, however, I can confidently say I don't believe. I listen to and am capable of enjoying a wide variety of music (if you pardon my self-praise) and so are some of my closer friends. I think this is simply a matter of maturity and not age. No offence, morgoth, not saying you are immature (nor am I saying you aren't ).

I agree with this. "Artistic maturity", if anything, because I wouldn't be any other kind of mature, let me tell you....

When you begin viewing music as an art-form, it becomes much easier to blend the genres together into "music" and start viewing them as pieces of art (regardless of genre; Green Day's "Longview" is just as much art as Michael Hedge's "Aerial Boundaries") rather than just songs. I believe a musician would gain artistic maturity with more ease than somebody who isn't a musician, simply because you start to realize what goes into writing music and how difficult it is to express moods with an instrument (but that's not saying non-musicians can't or all musicians out there are artistically mature -- I HATE YOU DRAKE BELL).
