I think that while the "true" punk crowd doesn't give them much respect, they're certainly among the decendents of the Pistols and the Ramones. The "true" punk crowd can **** off.

Red Hot Chili Peppers


I they're headed to the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame, for whatever that's worth.

Quote:
Sex Pistols


I think they kinda SUCK, but the fact they wouldn't care is cool as hell; and Sid & Nancy is one of my favorite movies.

Quote:
Velvet Revolver


Eh ... ya know, kind cool, nothing major.

Quote:
Slipknot


Was my favorite band for over a year. Thought Iowa sucked and listened to the fourth album (whatever it was called) about twice. Had they stuck to the sound of songs like "Spit it Out" and "Surfacing" they'd still be the bomb, but what the hell are they doing? It's like they went from the hardest, most snot-kicking band in the world to "We're the next Korn."

Quote:
The Doors
Jimi Hendrix
Cream


Classic rock in general (65-75) is probably the greatest period of American music - hell, music period - in all of history. You've named three bands; there's thirty more.

As for the stuff I didn't comment on, I don't like that neo-punk stuff. Seems childish to me. HATE Blink-182. Nirvana has their place in history, no doubt. The other stuff, I've never heard.

My my we are a mainstream one aren't we? I like only the Doors on that list. RHCP is ok. The rest are far from good or even mediocre (well maybe Hendrix isnt)...

Well I can. I can listen to the mainstream all day and will find very little appealing to me. The music is often similar (in the case of modern rock especially) and is often popular not because of quality but becasue of marketing and reputation and record companies and exposure etc.. I'll do an actually band band overview of his list:

Green Day- mediocre. They have very little talent and have an annoying singer.
Red Hot Chili Peppers- Pretty good band. Only have about 2 good albums hopefully next one will be good too
Sex Pistols- nope. theyre ****.
Screeching weasel- Only heard one song and it was so not memorable because I don't remember it.
Dropkick murphys- decent band. My friend's cousin is the bassist so I've actually met them.
The Casualties- they're good if by good you mean mediocre
My Chemical romance- no. just no. This band may not even deserve to exist to put it plainly.
The Buzzcocks- Never listened to them
Velvet Revolver- Slither was ok at best. Rest of their album was bad.
Slipknot- No. Bad Music and very annoying. Most people confuse them with real metal which puts them on my **** list.
Dinosaur Jr- Theyre ok but I always thought they were mundane and mediocre. Nothing special.
Nirvana- I like Polly (live) and Dumb (live). When you're best two songs were live performances of otherwise meh songs there are some eyebrows raising.
The Doors- Aha good band. Too bad ole Jim is dead but they are still making a new album.
Jimi Hendrix- I never caught on to hendrix fever. He was good but I never listen to him.
Cream- Nope. They suck.
Blink 182- Wow what a closer. The worst band on the list. I would rather listen to people being tortured than Blink.

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Don't have any albums, but keep telling myself to pick some up. Flea is a sick bassist.

Green Day: used to hate them, but heard the last album is really good.

Velvet Revolver: so much talent in that band, but thought the album is just ok. (like Audioslave's 1st cd much better).

Nirvana: love 'em. If anything, Nevermind is the album I listen to the least. Bleach is amazing, even love Incesticide, which is B-sides.

The Doors: great band, Morrison has an unreal voice, dark sound, dig 'em. Makes me want to drink heavily and break things.

Hendrix: uh, what else to say about this guy? Legend with the guitar. Wish I could go back in time to see him live.

Cream: like Cream, have a couple of my favorite songs.

I have to admit it was cool. Even if I'm not their biggest fan I think they are original and are very cool guys. I mean comon Irish rock is just too cool a concept.

Yes that does make a chav doesn't it :rolleyes: I have a feeling you have not heard music that properly rocks. You mention Metallica which is an amazing band and quite deserving of recognition (although their last two albums were meh), so all is not lost for you.

I recommend you discover the band Opeth my friend. Once you get a good dose of them you will look at these other bands in the same light.

That's such a large number of bands...is it really possible that they are all "awesome?" I'm just saying, I don't think one cool song makes a band great.
