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.

These debates about greatest guitar player of all time never include classical guitarists, like Fransciso Tarrega, Pepe Romero, John Williams, Andrés Segovia...

If you appreciate technique, you may want to listen to Animals as Leaders.
There is really no "greatest" of all time of course, but I would throw Paco de Lucia in that group...

Agreed....Tosin Abasi is incredible...grew up in my area so he is really well known here (MD)....

The Foo Fighters sound is diarrhea to the air waves. The sooner people realize this, the sooner ears will be unharmed.

The most frustrating part of this, it's all Dave Grohhl's fault....And he has no excuse at all. Dave Grohl's faults all the way! He grew up playing in a D.C. punk band, than graduated into Nirvana (you heard of Nirvana right?) where he played next to Kurt Cobain, Krist Notgonnaremberhowtospellhislastnameselic, and The Germs lead singer. Dave Grohl has proved with out a shadow of doubt, with enough money, anyone can sing in a famous rock band....And I mean ANYBODY. He has set the bottom in vocal skill and maybe only Yoko Ono could be considered worse.

Dave Grohl cannot sing, he is probably the worst singer I ever heard on the radio. He is really bad, so bad I feel all Nirvana albums should put a disclaimer on all cd's they sell in the future. One like, we are truly sorry about the Foo Fighters, if we had known this was gonna happen, Kurt would of more likely hired Patty Schemel for drums.

On second thought, it could be Dave is just a terrible song writer. His song writing just couldn't cover up his soul less vocal tones. Yes, I know he may of gotten some song writing credit on In Utero, but Kurt Cobain could of probably made any song into a hit or at least pass for a musical master piece.

I think having a female on drums with Nirvana would of given Nirvana a different vibe and more importantly, no Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl is an incredibly talented drummer, but the Foo Fighters belong in Dave Grohl's garage, not on the radio.

I'm leaving evidence down below. Please be warned you may have negative side effects after watching the video, such as...Blurred vision, eye pain, severe depression, coughing up blood, bloody stools, pancreatitis, high blood pressure, sleep problems, acne, slow wound healing, headache, and nausea. This is not a complete list of potential side effects of listening to The Foo Fighters, so please consult your physician before viewing.




Just remember this guy was in Nirvana.

I’ve had some time to do some thinking.

And I have decided that I have time for three James Taylor songs: Country Road, Handyman, and Carolina on My Mind.

The rest of them can fork off.

Thank you for at least understanding what I thought was a fairly simple thread concept.

As for the rest of you numbskulls . . .
Megadeth is better than Metallica because Mustaine never became a sober "artist" or made a horrible black album or one picturing semen and blood.

I liked Metallica's black album. :shrug: It was all downhill after that until their most recently released album imo. Never really got into Megadeth, although I do like a bit of their music. Personal tastes I guess. Heh.

He has become a sober artist though it took many tries to do it.
I likely phrased it wrong. Yes, Mustaine is sober, but, no, he didn't become a "sober artist" as so many do and then become more interested in mixing and technology and art rather than aggression.

Not that there's anything wrong with sobriety it's just that it seems in the music world to coincide with commercial success becoming more important than whatever got them there in the first place.

Everything since the first note of the black album has been pretty lame.

While I don't disagree that the things that made Metallica and other artists great in the early is linked to the rawness and edginess of their music, I do think you can only do that for so long because that shirt does take a toll after a while. Sometimes people have to change if they're gonna survive. That Metallica is still drawing massive crowds and actually doing decent to great shows speaks to their staying power.

That said, to each his own, :hihi:. I love the black album. I like AJFA better, but still great. I'll admit that after black was mostly meh tho.

Agreed, best since black, maybe even since Justice. I haven't listened lately, so I'm gonna have to set it up. My old iMac died, and haven't replaced it, and I need new headphones. Earbuds aren't loud enough, so I need the full sized over the ear ones to get the most out of the sound. That and I can feel more bass with those.
