Led Zeppelin - Extremely influential (Duh?) A long time favorite of mine. Great when played real loud

Rolling Stones - Ambivalent. I can dig their early stuff, other than that, I don't see what's the big deal.

Beatles - Still growing on me, despite the fact that I can call myself a fan by now. Catchy tunes. Interesting those guys are.

Ramones - I watched this movie on Encore where the Ramones take over this high school. It was pretty neat! Hm, otherwise I like them for what they are.

The Clash - It's blasphemy that I ignore this band any longer. I should check them out as soon as possible.

Green Day - Always enjoyed the simplicity of this band. Very accessible. Also a long time favorite.

Weezer - Half of Pinkerton is good. Don't like anything else they did. Keeping their music fresh isn't in their repetoire it seems. Boring for the most part.

Jimmy Eat World - Umm...didn't like them at all until their latest album came out. I think I may want to buy it.

The Breeders - See the Clash

The Pixies - I more appreciative of them more than a fan of them. Great songs here and there. Maybe their production is too gritty for me.

The Strokes - Is This It is one of my favs from 2001. Highly enjoyable.

Nirvana - Heh. I just bought Nevermind like last year. I've been meaning to buy it for the past 8 years. Also very well crafted, accessible music. Still sounds fresh.

Pearl Jam - I like Ten, and that's about it. Their music isn't very lyrical. They got a dry stale sound.

The Smashing Pumpkins - My favorite band of all time. Enough said.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - My previous favorite band before I got into Pumpkins, and really the first "rock" band I got into. I'm missing a few of their earlier albums. They are the best at what they do.

Radiohead - First couple of albums, forgetable. OK Computer could have been a great EP. Kid A is amazing, but Amnesiac should have been pushed as a b-side compilation. After reading a few interviews, I'm becoming more of a fan of this quirky quintet.

Sigur Ros - Aegaetis Byrjun could have been a much better album. Half the tracks are brilliant, the other half just lame.

Bjork - Aside from the fact I am in love with this woman, she is putting out the some of the most innovative music.

Belle And Sebastian - Tigermilk and If You Are Feeling Sinister, both great. But have been putting out the same type of music since, so I don't like them too much.

The Doves - The only band I enjoy from the current dream pop/alternative Brit rock scene. I recommend this band for people who haven't heard them yet.

Clinic - They'd be a much better band if they stuck to their more electronic/experimental side more often.

The White Stripes - Putting out some of the most worst, bland, uninspired, dry music right now.

Ozma - Never heard them. They're supposed to be a Weezer clone. So I think I'll pass.

Grandaddy - Example of how lumberjacks playing electronic-tinged rock music can be a great thing.

Built To Spill - Built to suck.

Fountains of Wayne - Fountains of Lame.

Gin Blossoms - Gay.

Foo Fighters - First album decent. Downhill from there.

Eels - Make some of the most heartaching pop music. I need to hear more of them. i don't own any of their albums.

Polaris - Immortalized for that Pete and Pete song, huh?

REM - Don't care for them.

U2 - Picked up Joshua Tree a while ago and liked it. Achtung Baby might sound interesting. I'll have to listen to more of their earlier stuff because I know I can't stand anything they've put out in the last 10 years.

Led Zeppelin - One of the best bands ever. All of their albums are excellent. Achilles Last Stand is one of the 10 best rock songs ever.

Rolling Stones - Released a string of brilliant albums starting with Begger's Banquet and ending with Exile on Main Street which is one of the best albums ever. It also earns bonus points for inspiring a Liz Phair album.

Beatles - Great

Ramones - Awesome band. Their four albums in the late 70s are some of the best rock and roll you can buy. It all sounds the same, but it all sounds great.

The Clash - London Calling stands as the best "punk" album ever made. Their debut is also fantastic, and certainly better than most of the other punk stuff from that time. The rest of their catalog is pretty hit or miss.

Green Day - A great singles band. International Superhits is a must have. Warning is their only really cohesive album.

Weezer - One very good album, one fantastic album, one horrible album, one pretty good album.

Jimmy Eat World - Crap. Fuck their singer, his goofy haircut, and his fucking positive, pick yourself up attitude.

The Breeders - Last Splash and Pod are both really good. Esepcially Pod. Their new songs suck.

The Pixies - Best and most influential band of the 80s, and early 90s. Everything they ever released is a must have.

The Strokes - Still a good, fun catchy album, but loses a bit of luster when held up next to the other bands doing the same "rock revival" thing right now.

Nirvana - In Utero is an undisputable classic in my mind. Perfectly captures both the catharsis of Bleach and the pop sheen of Nevermind in one album.

Pearl Jam - Three classic albums during the first half of the 90s, and three blah albums during the latter half. They have good intentions, both in their music and outside of it, but often fall flat on their face. (see: Ticketmaster, "world music experimentation on No Code", and Eddie's mohawk protest)

The Smashing Pumpkins - Still my favorite band. I'm not quite as enthusiastic, but I can still put on Siamese Dream, Adore, or Mellon Collie and positively lose myself. Definitely one of the most exciting, and consistent bands in the 90s. I like Machina, but it pales next to the rest of their work. It's still a good album, and the first four albums are spectacular enough to forgive that one mistake.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - They were great in the 80s and up until One Hot Minute (fuck you haters, OHM was good), but Californication worries me. The more reflective songs are really good, better than on the older albums, but the attempts at trashy funk now seem forced, out of place, and downright pathetic.

Radiohead - two decent, pretty standard college rock albums to start out. The Bends did, however, have some amazing songs that hinted at what they would become. (Street Spirit, Just, Nice Dream, and Iron Lung are definite classics of that time). Ok Computer is an all out masterpiece, and my second favorite album of all time. Kid A is absolutely gorgeous. Amnesiac is a bit hit and miss, but there are stunning moments on it, particularly Life in a Glasshouse. I hope they do more jazzy tracks in the future.

Sigur Ros - zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Bjork - Brilliant. I LOVE her voice. Homogenic is an incredible album. The heights the song on it achieve are breathtaking. Bachelorette gives me chills. Plus she shows her tits in her videos.

Belle And Sebastian - Blah. Tigermilk and If You're Feeling Sinister are decent, but boring albums. fold Your Hands is crap in it's msot basic form.

The Doves - Radiohead. But with more funky, and jazzy elements. I quite like them. Their new single is excellent. It holds your interest throughout it's entire 7 minutes, and it's just such a bouncy, fun, happy song that it's irresistible.

Clinic - I love this band. Internal Wrangler is a great debut album. I wouldn't hesitate to say that their output is nearly as good as Radiohead's best work.

The White Stripes - I'm seeing this band next Tuesday, at one of the shittiest little venues in the state. hooray!

Ozma - Fuck this band up their, gay, emo asses until they die from rectal bleeding. Weezer should sue these pieces of shit. I hope Natalie Portman bitch-slaps their singer.

Grandaddy - I love Sophtware Slump. Cheesy, tinny keyboards rule. That's all I've heard from them, but I really want to get Western Freeway and the new album they are putting out this year.

Built To Spill - Possibly the best "indie rock" band in existence. (I know they're on Warner Bros., FUCK YOU) Perfect From Now On and Keep it Like a Secret can be positively jaw dropping at times.

Fountains of Wayne - Fuck that. Their first album was pretty good, but the second one was complete shit. I like Adam Schlessinger's other band, Ivy, much much more.

Gin Blossoms - Good singles band. I'd buy their best of.

Foo Fighters - Another good singles band with spotty albums. I'd definitely buy a Foo Fighters Greatest Hits.

Eels - Electro-Shock Blues is incredible. It nearly made me cry. Daisies of the Galaxy is really good too. Souljacker and Beautiful Freak are really only ok.

Fugazi - My current favorite band. Red Medicine and the Argument are two albums I listen to almost constantly

Death By Penis - Pretty generic, but good. Definitely need a new singer.

Pink Floyd - The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is their best album. I fucking hate you if you don't think so, too. I do quite like Dark Side, Animals, and Wish you Were Here, though.

The Magnetic Fields - I only have the first disc of 69 Love Songs, but I like it and want to hear the other two.

Polaris - THEY DID THE FUCKING MUSIC FOR PETE AND PETE. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THEM?!?!?1

REM - Murmer is an all time classic, Automatic for the People is almost up to that level. I don't really think most of their stuff is that spectacular though. Other than those two albums, I would definitely want a best of that distilled their best moments from the rest of their stuff into one disc.

U2 - I want to kick bono in the head, but they are a good band. Achtung Baby is their masterpiece. I don't think any of the stuff they did after that is essential though. I don't even think Joshua tree is that great. Boy and Unforgettable Fire own it.

Fountains of Wayne - I always put "I Want An Alien for Christmas" on holiday mixtapes.
Gin Blossoms - They had that one good song, Hey Jealousy?
Foo Fighters - Great songwriters, Don't take themselves too seriously. Everlong is a classic.
Eels - Really good...but starting to get that golden/plasticy sound I really dislike.
Fugazi - n/a
Death By Pencil - Horrifying.
Pink Floyd - Good, my father is really into them.
The Magnetic Fields - Merritt is the best lyricist I think I've ever seen.

oh, i guess I should go.

Led Zeppelin - just about as good as music gets
Rolling Stones - lately i just can't get enough of them. i wish more people here liked em
Beatles - best band ever
Ramones - i appreciate them, but i can only listen to them in small doses at time
The Clash - best punk band ever. London Calling is perfect, and i could listen to the first album all day, too.
Green Day - some of that newer stuff annoys me. and i'm still traumatized from hearing brain stew or whatever that song was called 9 times a day on the radio
Weezer - saviours of rock and roll. it seems as though i'm one of the last true fans left!
Jimmy Eat World - the lyrics annoy me, i wish they were better. they would be a good band otherwise
The Breeders - i've been walking around campus with last splash on for the past week. i'm in love.
The Pixies - there's just something about em, you know? totally original, even when so other bands have been influenced by them.
The Strokes - suck.
Nirvana - unplugged is their best work. i have a hard time connecting with a lot of the other stuff they've done
Pearl Jam - too many fantastic songs to count. 2nd best band of the 90's, methinks.
The Smashing Pumpkins - used to be obsessed, and when I go back and listen to them now, i find more and more flaws. so i just keep the illusion up, and don't listen to them anymore
Red Hot Chili Peppers - i'm undecided.
Radiohead - i wish amnesiac hadn't sucked. Kid A still rocks my world, though, as did OK so many years back.
Sigur Ros - sucks
Bjork - so many great songs, but the perfect album hasn't been acheived yet. she still has a long musical journey ahead of her, and we should all feel blessed. a true artist.
Belle And Sebastian - boy with the arab strap makes me smile.
The Doves - I need suggestions. someone?
Clinic - i need suggestions for this one as well
The White Stripes - from what little i've heard, i love em.
Ozma - crap. can't stand em.
Grandaddy - i need suggestions. i love miner at the dial a view, though
Built To Spill - not my cup of tea, really, but what i've heard i have enjoyed
Fountains of Wayne - fun, occasionally.
Gin Blossoms - singles band. I thought i would really like them, but its astonishing how much of their work sounds the same. and i don't just mean the same as in "weezer" the same. I mean, like....really, really the same.
Foo Fighters - should stick to funny covers of zeppelin songs.
Eels - daisies of the galaxy and electro shock blues kill me. Mr. E is one of the best song writers of his generation
Fugazi - i need suggestions
Death By Pencil - i actually like em!
Pink Floyd - classic. but its annoying how only about 5 or 6 songs get played on the radio.
The Magnetic Fields - makes me romantic
Polaris - makes me happy
REM - best band of the past 20 years.
U2 - pop is underrated. the new stuff hurts me.

Death By Penci- lame.

Pink Floyd- i like their pretty songs like "learn to fly" and "wish you were here." another brick in the wall is an overrated song.

The Magnetic Fields- absolutely cuckoo. http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/smile.gif

Polaris- who?

REM- i love michael stipe. well, his voice and his lyrics. i love mike mills' backup harmonies. peter buck is fat.

U2- i grew up with them as my parents' favourite band, so they hold a place in my heart.

Led Zeppelin - best classic rock band of all time. almost all music that i enjoy today is somehow influenced or based on zep.
Rolling Stones - agree with mayfuck that their early stuff was awesome. they've sold out in recent years imo.
Beatles - the greatest song writers of all time and interestingly enough the only boy band i ever liked.
Ramones - pioneers, great band.
The Clash - haven't heard enough to comment
Green Day - their real early stuff was decent, lately its acliche of themselves, garbage.
Weezer - excellent band. no frills, no flowery lyrics, just good rock tunes.
Jimmy Eat World - eh.
The Breeders - decent, nothing great.
The Pixies - another pioneering band, excellent stuff though i really need to listen to more of their stuff.
The Strokes - haven't heard enough to comment, though i liked last night a lot until i heard it too much.
Nirvana - great band but given way too much credit. simply there at the right time. kurt was only as popular as he was because of his death.
Pearl Jam - i think they're better than nirvana. consistantly put out great music.
The Smashing Pumpkins - my favorite band of all time though certainly not the most talented. dynamic.
Red Hot Chili Peppers - better than most people give them credit for. i like their frusciante (spelling?) years the best.
Radiohead - love/hate. ok computer/kid a i love. the rest i can do without.
Sigur Ros - great of what i have heard of them.
Bjork - awesome, i love her stuff even when i dont like the songs, shes got cajones.
Belle And Sebastian - only recently got into them, plesently surprised.
The Doves - haven't heard enough to comment
Clinic - haven't heard enough to comment
The White Stripes - getting into them now, check back later (yes i'm always behind the 8 ball).
Ozma - haven't heard enough to comment
Grandaddy - haven't heard enough to comment
Built To Spill - haven't heard enough to comment
Fountains of Wayne - good stuff, catchy tunes though nothing spectacular.
Gin Blossoms - no, just no.
Foo Fighters - excellent band, tremendous live.
Eels - haven't heard enough to comment
Fugazi - dont like much of what ive heard, but thats not much.
Death By Pencil - good good good
Pink Floyd - unreal, i bow down to thee.
The Magnetic Fields - haven't heard enough to comment
Polaris - haven't heard enough to comment
REM - eh. too much material and too little good stuff. there are some nice things hidden among the shit though.
U2 - great band if they werent so commercial about everything. earlier stuff is better.

<font color="orange">Led Zeppelin - boring
Rolling Stones - eh. I'm reminded of that fucking idiot mos def rapping about how only black people are rock 'n roll and how everything the stones did, they stole.
Beatles - eh. I'm more fond of McCartney's solo work.
Ramones - eh. Besides a couple of songs, I never really heard 'em.
The Clash - Never actually gave them a listen.
Green Day - horrible
Weezer - They've got some okay songs, and some really boring ones.
Jimmy Eat World - I like "In the Middle", and I downloaded some of their songs a year or so ago. I think I thought they were okay.
The Breeders - Saw part of a video on Beavis and Butthead. Needless to say, I wasn't impressed.
The Pixies - Never actually heard them.
The Strokes - horrible
Nirvana - Took me a while to get into them. But, they're good.
Pearl Jam - boring
The Smashing Pumpkins - good music, horrible vocals and videos.
Red Hot Chili Peppers - horrible. I just can't get over the fact that anthony kiedis is so egotistical that he SWEARS Mike Patton was biting off his style. The "man" holds a grudge like no other and insisted that Mr. Bungle be kicked off of the Big Day Out tour. Once again, horrible.
Radiohead - Two good albums, three bad ones.
Sigur Ros - Never heard them, and based on the fact that everyone on netphoria talks about them - I probably never will.
Bjork - horrible. I give her "mad phat dope sick tight props" for allowing her fish to be in Faith No More's video for "Epic"
Belle And Sebastian - horrible
The Doves - I think I downloaded some of their songs, and if they're who I think they are, they're horrible.
Clinic - never heard them
The White Stripes - eh... okay, I suppose
Ozma - never heard them
Grandaddy - never heard them
Built To Spill - heard a couple songs, but not really my style
Fountains of Wayne - never heard them. I never bought into the whole "let's listen to these bands and like them because they're on Scratchie records!" thing
Gin Blossoms - only heard that jealousy single. never bothered to listen to more because I hated that fucking song.
Foo Fighters - singles band
Eels - horrible
Fugazi - never listened to, probably based on the fact that my friend Daryl likes them and he has shitty taste
Death By Pencil - great
Pink Floyd - they sound so wonderful on the best of Pink Floyd CD commercial, but when you actually hear the songs, they're pretty boring
The Magnetic Fields - never heard em
Polaris - never heard them
REM - singles band
U2 - singles band

I'm wondering why everybody hates the shit out of Ozma?!

I would understand if your opinion was from listening to the novelty song, "Natalie Portman", which is definitely a love it/hate it (actually mostly hate it) song thats not even sung by the regular lead singer. It's not a typical Ozma song...

"Battlescars" would be a better example to check out. Any song that starts off with the melody of final fantasy and harkens back to the good old days of an emotional weezer fuckin rox. If you like weezer and still hate Ozma after hearing "Battlescars" then I'm completely baffled.

I have read most of the respones http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/redface.gif

Led Zeppelin -- great band and wildly influential, although I never could get into them as much as other people could, and I think they're a bit overrated musically.
Rolling Stones -- Also overrated, but still a damn good band, and "Sympathy for the Devil" is one of the best driving songs ever.
Beatles -- fuck the cliches. Greatest band ever. Period.
Ramones -- Love them. Any band that can pick up the guitar and make three-chord songs that are that fun, that energetic, and that damn catchy is a great rock and roll band.
The Clash -- I'm more down with the Ramones style of punk than theirs, but they're still a good band. I don't know what the fuck they were thinking with "Rock the Casbah" though.
Green Day -- Good enough, although a bit overrated. I am one of the few people who think their new stuff is better than their old stuff. "Macy's Day Parade" owns you.
Weezer -- One of my favorite bands. Criticize them all you want, but you'll never be one-hundredth as catchy.
Jimmy Eat World -- A few good songs; older stuff is better. The chicks in their videos need to gain weight.
The Breeders -- Anything related to the Pixies is a good deal. (Haha! Get it!) I actually own a t-shirt of theirs that my lit journal adviser got me at their concert, and I wear it proudly.
The Pixies -- "YOU FUCKIN' DIE!" "What?" "I SAID YOU FUCKIN' DIE!" http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/biggrin.gif
The Strokes -- Not as good as the White Stripes, but Julian Casablancas IS Lou Reed.
Nirvana -- Great band. Bleach is good, Nevermind is great, and In Utero is arguably the best punk record ever made. Overrated as influential artists, but not as songwriters.
Pearl Jam -- The single most respect-worthy band on the planet is also one of the better rock acts America has, and certainly the best at what they're doing, which is making solid, guitar-based, Neil-Young-esque records.
The Smashing Pumpkins -- After you get over major depression, you don't love them as much, but I still just got done listening to MCIS, and Siamese Dream is still one of the best albums ever.
Red Hot Chili Peppers -- Overrated, but they've got some good songs.
Radiohead -- A decent pop-rock album, a damn good pop-rock album, the best album of the last 20 years, a damn good electronica/rock fusion, and a scattershot but often brilliant electronica/rock fusion. Throw in two great EP's and a wealth of other b-side goodness and it all adds up to one of, if not the, greatest bands of the 1990's.
Sigur Ros -- Very, very pretty stuff.
Bjork -- Good. I need to get more into her.
Belle And Sebastian -- Good, but overrated.
The Doves -- Haven't heard enough to form an opinion.
Clinic -- See above.
The White Stripes -- Hands down, White Blood Cells is the best album of 2001. Every single song on that album is my favorite rock song. Older stuff is good, but it can't touch WBC.
Ozma -- Enjoyable Weezer clones, but nothing tremendously special.
Grandaddy -- I love them, and I'm pissed that I missed them on tour with Elliott Smith, another fine musical artist (although Figure 8 kind of sucks).
Built To Spill -- My second favorite Warner Brothers signee, right behind Flaming Lips. Perfect From Now On and Keep It Like a Secret are both incredible, amazing albums, and There's Nothing Wrong With Love has "Car," the best song of all time.
Fountains of Wayne -- They're ok.
Gin Blossoms -- They're lame.
Foo Fighters -- Fun, catchy, good, not great.
Eels -- And my girlfriend thinks Radiohead is morose. Still, they're good.
Fugazi -- I like them, but I don't own any of their albums.
Death By Pencil -- They need to shave.
Pink Floyd -- Some of their stuff is vastly overrated. Dark Side and Wish You Were Here are great. The Wall is crap.
The Magnetic Fields -- Merritt is just a damn good songwriter. I don't own any of 69 Love Songs but I've got some tunage on my hard drive and it sounds great.
Polaris -- <3 Pete & Pete.
R.E.M. -- The single most underappreciated band on this board. R.E.M. are just as important as the Pixies, and to me, they're even better (and I love the Pixies). If they're not the best band of the last 20 years, they're undeniably in the top three.
U2 -- We all remember my "U2 is overrated" thread, but really, I do like them quite a bit. Achtung Baby is jaw-dropping, and a lot of their earlier stuff is damn good as well. The last ten years haven't been so kind to them, although there really are some good songs on ATYCLB.

<font color="CC33CC">I read all of them too, and lamayoed at FearFactory's ;D

Led Zeppelin: I used to have a few albums, but I just couldn't get into them.

Rolling Stones: I judge them harshly, even after not hearing much of their music. What I have heard annoys me.

Beatles: Only own Abbey Road. I sinfully neglect this band.

Ramones: The gods have been telling me to check them out.

The Clash: ^ Ditto. I'm horribly ignorant on many bands.

Green Day: Fun, catchy. Don't mind them.

Weezer: I have Pinkerton and thinks it's alright. I've heard their other albums and haven't been too impressed. What's the big deal?

Jimmy Eat World: Only heard a few songs; they seemed ok.

The Breeders: I HAVE TO GET AN ALBUM.

The Pixies: My second favorite band. Disturbing stories in the guise of insanely hyper and catchy tunes. They're a tricky bunch. Bands still shamelessly rip from the Pixies...shit, half of them don't even KNOW they are ripping from the Pixies.

The Strokes: Never heard.

Nirvana: I am torn on Nirvana. They were needed at the time, but I could never get into them.

Pearl Jam: Like the singles.

The Smashing Pumpkins: I think they'll always be number one for me. Beauty in imperfection. I can't get too pissy about Machina b/c it's good to see what a band is doing even if I don't get that into it. Prolific, creative, transcendental. They made me love music.

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Never cared.

Radiohead: Used to be my second favorite band. Wonderful music and lyrics, but I find it hard to keep connected with them. It's a rare thing that they survived past PH and became a great band. Awesome live band.

Sigur Ros: Von and Agaetis Byrjun are strange and lovely albums. I wish I didn't miss their touring.

Bjork: I feel an obsession coming on with her. An inspiration to women musicians and musicians in general to trek creative territory. Vespertine is amazing.

Belle And Sebastian: Only have Arab Strap, and it took me FOREVER to like it. Now I enjoy it and love the lyrics, but can't listen to it very often.

The Doves: Never heard.
Clinic: Never heard of.
The White Stripes: Never heard.
Ozma:Never heard of.

Grandaddy: D/led a few mp3s and was intrigued.

Built To Spill: I'm ignorant on them.
Fountains of Wayne: See above.

Gin Blossoms: Eh.
Foo Fighters: Don't do much for me.
Eels: I want to get an album.
Fugazi: Ignorant.
Death By Pencil:^ ditto

Pink Floyd: Crazy band. I <3 them but find it annoying when a band isn't consistent in quality. And I disagree that Piper is the best http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/wink.gif; sorry you'll have to hate me.

The Magnetic Fields: Ignorant.
Polaris: Never heard of.
REM: I never got anything out of listening to them.
U2: They're all right. Tons of bands have the Bono-voiced lead singer now.

Led Zeppelin - Important, but not my cup of tea for everyday listening.

Rolling Stones - I like the singles.

Beatles - My childhood.

Ramones - Influential and fun. I don't really care about the influential part.

The Clash - I like what I've heard.

Green Day - Good, fun...they have more integrity then they're given credit for.

Weezer - I still enjoy the Blue Album but constantly want to punch Rivers Cuomo in the face...especially after reading that pathetic interview in Guitar World magazine.

Jimmy Eat World - Their new stuff is much better than they're given credit for by most hardcore music fans. Bleed American is a great album...you don't need to know anything about emo crap to like them. "Lucky Denver Mint," on the other hand, annoys the fuck out of me.

The Breeders - I'm ignorant.

The Pixies - Influential and all that rot...I like them, recognize the talent, but in general am annoyed by people who are like "Pixies, Pixies, Pixies!"

The Strokes - Eh. They're okay. I just want everyone to shut up about them.

Nirvana - I enjoy some of their stuff, but they're overrated, and were not nearly as influential on future music as they were believed to be, they just helped push what was already there into the mainstream. They rode the wave.

Pearl Jam - They have a few good songs, but in general are kind of annoying.

The Smashing Pumpkins - I don't know what to say about them objectively. They're to my adolescence as the Beatles are to my childhood. They weren't incredibly influential, but they were very influenced which is just as important, and they sounded cool as fuck.They'll always be a part of my life and have a special place in my heart

Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Under The Bridge" and "Soul To Squeeze" are favorites of mine. I also like the into to "Breaking The Girl." I own BloodSugarSexMagic and One Hot Minute and appreciate them. They make me think of summer and make me happy. I'm not into their new music.

Radiohead - OK Computer and The Bends are their best, no doubt about it, but even on those they have their weak moments as a band. Their obsessive fan following annoys me, and yet I understand the appeal.

Sigur Ros - Crap.

Bjork - Love her earlier albums, HATE Vespertine.

Belle And Sebastian - They put me to sleep. And not in a good way.

The Doves - Haven't heard them.

Clinic - Haven't heard them.

The White Stripes - Absolute crap.

Ozma - Haven't even heard of them.

Grandaddy - Have been meaning to download something.

Built To Spill - Incredibly overrated. There's not much to them.

Fountains of Wayne - I know I've heard some songs by them, but I forget.

Gin Blossoms - I always enjoyed the singles.

Foo Fighters - "Everlong" is a pretty good song. They don't interest me much, though.

Eels - I appreciate "Electroshock Blues" for being sweet as it is, but musically and lyrically, they suck.

Fugazi - Clever and fun. I like them a lot from what I've heard but from what I've seen a lot of their fans are complete snots.

Death By Pencil - Ha.

Pink Floyd - I like The Wall and Dark Side Of The Moon a lot when I'm in the mood. I haven't heard much else by them.

The Magnetic Fields - Have purposely not downloaded anything because from what I've heard, I feel they must be crappy.

Polaris - Haven't heard them.

REM - Good, classic, but wrote too much, and too much of their stuff sounds the same to me.

U2 - I love them sometimes, but often they still sound too much the same to me.

<font color="aquamarine">Led Zeppelin - One of the greatest rock acts of all time.

Rolling Stones - See above. I think they're a bunch of self-important blowhards now, but their achievements can't be denied.

Beatles - CANNOT STAND THEM! I don't care what anyone says...they're terrible.

Ramones - Most of their work sounds the same to me.

The Clash - One of my dad's favorites. That's all I can say.

Green Day - I have to be in the right mood to listen to them, but they're all right, generally.

Weezer - Mediocre.

Jimmy Eat World - What?

The Breeders - What??

The Pixies - What?!

The Strokes - WHAT??

Nirvana - A classic, to be sure, but I outgrew 'em.

Pearl Jam - Used to like, now hate. I think Vedder's voice just makes me want to shoot my radio. Haven't paid much attention to them since Five Against One.

The Smashing Pumpkins - Perfect balance of, well, almost everything that can be good musically. Can come off sounding immature at times, but they're are seriously an overrated band. Billy's voice is no more annoying than, say, SCOTT STAPP'S! http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/mad.gif

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Bleh. Their music just annoys the hell out of me. Give it away, give it away, give it away now!

Radiohead - My current favorite band. Cryptic lyrics and innovative sound. Planet Telex is probably my favorite song right now.

Sigur Ros - WHAT??!!

Bjork - She tries too hard to be weird, but she still makes some damn charming music.

Belle And Sebastian - I may get into them eventually...

The Doves - WHAT?????!!!!

Clinic - *breath* WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!/

The White Stripes - WHAT???!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Ozma - WHAT??!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Grandaddy - WHAT?!?!?!?!?!??!??!$&*!@#^$&!$^&

Built To Spill - I bought Ancient Melodies of the Future, and only liked two songs off of it. That album made them sound like a cross between REM and Neutral Milk Hotel, neither of which I like much. I'm sure their older work is better, based on what you people have said here.

Fountains of Wayne - WHAT?!#$&@^#$&@^#$&*(@#^&*($^@#(&*$^(@&#^$(@&*#^$(@*#&^

Gin Blossoms - My sister likes 'em. That's pretty much all I know...but from what I've heard, they aren't that great.

Foo Fighters - Meh...a singles band if there ever was one.

Eels - WHAT?!@$!@#!@*($&*(!&%)(@#*^%)&@^#$%(&@#^(*@&#^$(&*@#$^@(#&*$

Fugazi - WHAT?!@*&!$*(&#*($&@&*(^&*(#^$&*@#^$&*@#^$@#*&($^@#&*$^@#(

Death By Pencil - What?

Pink Floyd - They're just not for me.

The Magnetic Fields - What?

Polaris - What?

REM - Ok. Nothing special, but some of their songs are solid. Automatic For The People is a solid album.

U2 - A great band, still better than most...even if they have sold out a thousand times over. Pop is underrated, ATYCLB is overrated. Their best album is definitely Achtung Baby, and if you don't have it, you deserve to be beat.

It's true, it's true.

Led Zeppelin - wrote some great songs. good recordings. i think they had a very original sound for their time. i could be wrong though.

Rolling Stones - i've been liking them a lot more lately. but their output seems pretty erratic.

Beatles - a huge yes to john. no to a lot of paul. yes to george. ringo doesn't really matter.

Ramones - i like "I Wanna Be Sedated." that's about all i know.

The Clash - pretty damn good and interesting.

Green Day - writes consistently good pop rock. i even like a good deal of their lyrics. get shit on more than they should.

Weezer - writes inconsistently good pop rock. i loved pinkerton. green album i liked two or three songs. blue album i liked quite a bit of. cuomo deserves all the shit he gets.

Jimmy Eat World - suck. some ok pop songs, but they just scream suck to me.

The Breeders - not bad.

The Pixies - great. i like them a lot. it seems to me they got more popular in the later 90s than they were in the mid 90s and have continued to be spread word of mouth since. could just be my perception though.

The Strokes - the songwriting is pretty good. the recording's good. yeah.

Nirvana - i like a good deal of their output. overrated though? yes.

Pearl Jam - i don't care for most of their music, no.

The Smashing Pumpkins - heh.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - i like some stuff here and there. One Hot Minute i probably liked the best.

Radiohead - i really like pretty much everything from The Bends on. a band with good b-sides. heh.

Sigur Ros - pretty good. a bit boring sometimes though. i guess the fad is over though.

Bjork - i don't know. i like about half of Post. i like her videos a lot. i liked "Hidden Place."

Belle And Sebastian - suck.

The Doves - not bad.

Clinic - i like them.

The White Stripes - i like them a lot. the gritty recording and raw sound seems to put off a lot of people though.

Ozma - subpar pop-rock.

Grandaddy - nice.

Built To Spill - i like them.

Fountains of Wayne - i like them.

Gin Blossoms - no.

Foo Fighters - i like a few songs.

Eels - hmm. i'm not too well-versed in their catalog. a few songs i really like. the rest i'm not too familiar with.

Fugazi - so far i've only heard "Repeater" and i like that one. i'll probably check out more soon.

Death By Penci - hah. no.

Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon is one of the top records of all time. i thought The Wall was pretty inconsistent though. the other albums i'm not too familiar with.

The Magnetic Fields - good lyrics, but their recording quality sure is offputting.

Polaris - *shrug*

REM - yeah. especially in the 80s.

U2 - don't like very much of their music. a few songs here and there.

Basing your BTS opinion on Ancient Melodies is like basing your opinion of the Pumpkins on Machina. Go get Keep It Like a Secret or Perfect From Now On.

Led Zeppelin ***1/2 Good but I don't see what the big deal is.
Rolling Stones I haven't really gotten enough into their music to judge.
Beatles ***** I think they are the best band ever.
Ramones ***1/2 They're good, simple, punk rock.
The Clash I don't know them well enough, truth be told. That said about the Ramones, I avoid most punk rock.
Green Day *** They're pretty good at what they do best.
Weezer ***1/2 hit and miss with me, I think. Mostly hit.
Jimmy Eat World Don't know anything but their radio material.
The Breeders Haven't gotten into them.
The Pixies Haven't gotten into them much, but I've liked what little I've heard.
The Strokes **1/2 a clear and present rip-off of 70s punk bands. Still, not all bad.
Nirvana ***1/2 They were good. One of the only bands I would actually invoke the term
"overrated", but still good.
Pearl Jam ***1/2 A solid band.
The Smashing Pumpkins ****1/2 Excellent. Deduct 1/2 star for some of the excesses.
Red Hot Chili Peppers *** They're alright, I guess.
Radiohead ***** The best group I've heard recently.
Sigur Ros ***1/2 Some excellent sounds and ambience, but can get boring sometimes.
Bjork ****1/2 Excellent
Belle And Sebastian no opinion
The Doves no opinion
Clinic no opinion
The White Stripes no opinion
Ozma no opinion
Grandaddy no opinion
Built To Spill no opinion
Fountains of Wayne no opinion

Led Zeppelin- can't get into 'em? don't like em? then i really don't know what's wrong with you. you can NOT possibly like any of the below bands if you can't dig zep.

Beatles- more than just musicians, great songwriters.

Ramones- catchy as all hell.

Green Day- were good when i was full of 12 yr old pre pubesant angst. sound wise anyway.

Weezer- good or bad they have thier own funk. i generally like.

Jimmy Eat World- most of you bone heads here are BASING YOUR OPINIONS ON THE MIDDLE, which does NOT capture how they really sound at all. they are better than that, and yes, they are a good listen.

The Breeders- thumbs up.

The Pixies- werd.

The Strokes- cathy songs. even more fun to listen to when you're drunk.

Nirvana- unplugged was thier showcase, it was how they were meant to sound.

Pearl Jam- good stuff.

The Smashing Pumpkins- not a record by them have dissapointed me. all good songs, every last one. they've been uhmming in my head for 6 yeas now, not a whole lot of music has hit me that hard.

Red Hot Chili Peppers- aces. good musicians, good funk, yo.

Radiohead- amazeing. 2nd favorite. never get old to me, not a dissapointing record (pablo honey was aight, amnesiac grw on me slowly and i can't stop listening to it now.)

Bjork- gorgeous. prod

The White Stripes- i think the singer has a good voice, good guitar playing. drumming is gay.

Fountains of Wayne- energy! from what i remember. i have thier records but haven't played 'em in a couple years.

Gin Blossoms- still being played on my local radio station.

Foo Fighters- they got it right with everlong. (is that even the right title?)

Eels- werd.

Fugazi- woah.

Death By Pencil- only heard pug.

Pink Floyd- same comment as zep. great.

REM- e-bow the letter tis my fav song.

U2- i did like bautiful day. thier older stuff=much better. they are cocky as all hell though, and that bugs me.

I would, but I've found that having an internet connection of my own only keeps me hooked to a computer at night, rather than doing stuff I'd rather be doing, such as reading, studying, or working.

As a result of my internet addiction, I refuse to have an internet connection in my dorm room (despite having access to a high-speed network), and instead use public computers. Trust me: losing the internet was the best thing that ever happened to me. http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/smile.gif
