hey people and welcome what do you think of the following bands that i think are awesome ?...
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.
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.
Eh ... ya know, kind cool, nothing major.
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."
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.
