  1. what's with all the meg hate? if she were a dude i highly doubt she'd get as hard of a time from listeners as she does. i don't think she was amazing, but the whole point of the band was to be simple and reductive, and she served that purpose just fine.
  2. old news, but i thought i'd start a thread in this desert of a section. "hate to say i told you so" was prolly their best song, IMO.
  3. my top ten looks something like this: gil scott-heron - i'm new here daughters - s/t gorillaz - plastic beach big boi - sir lucious left foot: the son of chico dusty janelle mona
  4. i don't mind what i've heard-- they're actually kindof refreshing to hear on the edge-- but they sound like a poor man's constantines.
  5. you have the weirdest, most inflated fucking understanding of the word of "protest." lucky for you, half of canada shares it. makes you look like less of a tard. a lot of people have been talking about how unnecessary the whole meet up is in the first place. most of the decisions made in the final communiqu
  6. too bad the same isn't required to be a politician!
  7. daydream nation, goo and dirty are my favourites. murray street is up there as well. my favourite song of theirs has to be "death valley 69:"
  8. i've been meaning to see this, but haven't had the time. my friends love it though.
  9. it was interesting but i could never imagine watching it regularly.
  10. still cracks me up. musically i much prefer their more recent, power-pop/garage rock stuff. though this song is not terribly far away from those styles. gil scott heron - "me and the devil" ***video provided for your listening convenience.
  11. terribly overplayed compared to the rest of their singles. i would even say that the amount of play this song gets is disproportionate to how good it actually is. ok, vedder read an article about a quiet kid who shot himself in class. we get it. it's a decent song, with decent music, but there's not much to it beyond that. it's not complicated, new parts or aspects of the song don't reveal themselves over time. it's fairly two dimensional to me. here's a better pearl jam song. i've posted a youtube so you have no excuse to say "haven't heard it" or "dunno" pearl jam - not for you
  12. you didn't pick the best screen name for that then. ;) owen, if you need an editor (and this is by no means a jab at the copy you've provided upthread) let me know. tracy's comments do have merit though. the line "because word on the street is that bondage is hot this year and only getting hotter" is pretty awful, as it assumes the readership is just waiting for the next hottest sex trend that they can be a part of: "oh rape is so 2007." it does answer the all-important "why" factor, but not in a very intelligent way. also, sarah b should calm down on the ellipses.
  13. i think ACC and ricoh would sell well, but i don't know if they'd sell out. i know they're popular, but for people who are 25+. i have no idea if the kids these days like them. not that kids determine sales... massey hall? that would be unique but i can't imagine it would really suit the band. if they made it out this way in the summer, i could see them doing a nice show at molson amphitheatre, but i know a lot of people hate that place. whenever i picture soundgarden playing live, its always outside in the burning sun. my dream soundgarden concert would be in the horseshoe tavern or some equally tiny, sweaty venue. yeah i'd almost prefer they disappear just as quickly as they reunited. i love soundgarden to death, but short reunions are definitely preferable to long, drawn out ones, or ones where the band opts to get back in the studio and shit on their legacy. i'm looking at you smashing pumpkins, janes addiction (bring back eric! (again)), and many others. alice in chains are an exception. they toured hard and warmed people up to a new singer, and it worked. the album was a clunker, but it made the fans happy.
  14. i'm not saying they won't but a lot of these bands who have recently reunited have barely set foot in canada. where would soundgarden play in toronto?
  15. rage against the machine didn't when they reunited. faith no more haven't.
  16. yeah man. i hope they make their way to toronto at some point.
  17. s'okay. not amazing, not terrible, though i sure am glad they're together again.
  18. haha you're not the first to think that. i think most of that can be attributed to matt berenger's vocals. they work at a certain level because his deadpan delivery can very easily skew the line between sincerity and ironic distance, but consequently they oftentimes sound just plain monotonous. i think repeated listens reveal that he's very subtle in the way that he sings, though i sure do miss the days where he would belt out a scream every now and then.
  19. the BTK mention is sad, but not surprising. surprised no one has mentioned nas yet. his output is inconsistent, but his first album is possibly the best hip hop album of all time. wu tang member gza was the first of the group to put out a strong solo record that few have been able to top. underground hip hop would not exist were it not for a tribe called quest. these guys were conscious hip hop through and through. i recommend checking out their midnight marauders album if you get the chance. one of the more recent artists i listen to quite a bit is mf doom (aka doom, madvillain, viktor vaughn, etc). he has a great flow and has worked with some of the best producers out there (madlib, j dilla, RJD2).
  20. http://www.limpbizkit.com/whytry/ chew on that. this song is for all the haters, sippin' on their hatorade. rofl.
  21. anything's better than "Now open the empty land, in comes the bird, in comes the end!"
