Maybe get something off your chest? Maybe end up in a fight?

I'll start.

I like Jane's Addiction. A lot. I can still listen to their albums - they're killer. But "Jane Says" is a lame song. Don't ever need to hear it again.

I won’t try to argue Beatles were best ever, but they’re probably the smart pick for dessert island catalogue
mix of breadth and depth easily beats most everyone else

it probably would be better to say you don’t actually know anything about the Beastie Boys
I know enough about them to say I don’t like their music. I never have, I never will. As others say and I agree, music appreciation is purely subjective. I don’t think they belong in the poorly-named Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Great White Buffalo is a much better song than Stranglehold.

I think part of the issue with Rock n Roll is how broad it is. When I think of rock, I think of hard rock and heavy metal. But then there's soft rock and power ballads and the broader pop rock. I think I'd have more interest in a metal hall of fame than the current iteration of the RRHOF. Just a thought.

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band were never more than a decent bar band. Certainly not deserving all of the accolades they have been given.

I was never that into metal (hardly at all really) but I have always liked hard rock . . . I'm sure the line between the two is often blurry. But I definitely used to enjoy Headbangers Ball on MTV. That was just a fun show to watch. So was Yo! MTV Raps.

Well, the Headbangers Ball is the sole reason I became a metal fan. :hihi: But yeah, both of those were pretty fun. Good times! FWIW, I've always enjoyed both hard rock and metal. Although I started out more hard rock, but later got into metal. I'm not much of a music snob though. I'll listen to pretty much any genre if I like the sound.

Aren't you somewhat hearing impaired? Is it from the metal? :hihi:

I'm still not sure where you are going.

A song that sucks from a band you like?

But this has always been controversial.


Especially because he never used Holly's last name, which was a killer.
