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 worked with this (um i guess human? maybe undead human?) thing who was adamant about knowing everything about ac/dc.

one day i hear him humming dirty deeds. i ask (like i didn't already know, duh) "what are you humming?" his response "thirty thieves and the thunder chief."

i looked at him dumfounded. did not bother to ask why he thinks they are the lyrics, but instead, took the high road and said "ah."

Now Dirty Deeds is good.

I'll give you that.

And that's hilarious.

Red Hot Chili Peppers are the single most overrated thing in life. Not just bands but all of life.
Not the peppers, those can be awesome. But the thing that is the over rated band.

over rated. Cannot be overstated

overrated
I second this.

I saw them live. Fishbone, STP (original line up), RHCP. All of my friends were so excited about RHCP. I thought I knew a lot of their stuff, but I guess I really didn't.

We get to the concert venue (The World amphitheater in Chicago). We see one or two of the guys from Fishbone running laps around the parking lot. I think the guy ran 3-4 miles. Before their show!

I didn't know a single song of theirs, but it was fun and had good energy.

Then, STP hits the Stage and puts on probably one of the best 45 minute sets I've ever seen. No lighting, no pyro, just great music, and a ton of energy. Scott Weiland was a slithering snake force of nature. I didn't own a single one of their CD's.. I realized I knew everything they played, and I loved their music. I bought one album within the week, and I think another soon after.

Then they're done.. audio equipment is being swapped out. .the sun is starting to set.

RHCP finally take the stage. Pretty cool lighting. I knew like 4-5 of their songs.. the rest were pretty boring. The only interesting person on stage was Flea. Flea is another force of nature.. everyone else sucks. maybe they used to be fun, or interesting, but they were just sorta chill, except for Flea. The thing I loved about Flea was that he was the "filler" between almost every song. But by the end of their set, I had started to get a headache (no drinking, maybe from a long day in the heat), and their music was boring me. Their final song was some sort of slow jam song, that ended with just a ton of guitar feedback/distortion.. sounded awful.

I seriously felt like STP should be the headliner.

Something close to this, without the lighting.

thanks for the concert recap. I agree that Flea is the only interesting thing in the band. And Kiedis looks like he got his head stuck in the Death Star garbage compactor. Some kind of way it screwed up his voice too. Maybe they meant Red Hot Chill Peppers.

The only reason I ever listened to RHCP was because of Flea and Chad Smith. Chad Smith is a very good drummer and one of my influences. Admittedly, I never owned an RHCP album past Blood Sugar Sex Magic.
