What is garage rock anyways? doesn't every band start jamming in their garage or a spot like it?

All these sub-genres tend to get a little silly as even most 90's alternative bands have a garage rock vibe kind of sound going on.

I would classify a group like Nirvana as garage rock... But they wouldn't be considered as such by most people.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre, as a bonus they wish they were English like you do, they even named themselves and their albums after Rolling Stones references and put a Union Jack on one of their album covers.

Isn't this a word people use when they're trying to justify liking the shitty music of the black keys?

I've listened to them before and couldn't dig it. I think they count as garage rock though

Garage Rock is like punk but in the 60's so it still has like white guys copying African American blues and R&B singers. At least more apparently I mean.

I can't tell if this post is brilliant or the opposite of brilliant.

Which of their albums are you listening to? There's a LOTTA variation in their catalogue. Methodrone is my fav of theirs.

Looking at the tracklist and that's not a bad crash course in the band as far as best-ofs go. Wiki says it doesn't have any material from Strung Out In Heaven though so make sure you follow up on that one.

It's some Green Day side-project, I think it sucks and was just joking around, but it kind of does fit the description of what you're looking for

stop drop and roll is not the best song on that album. I don't mind Foxboro Hot Tubs but I also don't mind Green Day. Unpopular opinion, but whatever; they were the first band I got into when I was like 12 so I have a soft spot for them. But usually if I'm going to listen to any Green Day side project, I listen to Pinhead Gunpowder.

I like Foxboro Hot Tubs but I dunno, over the course of just that one album, it wears thin.

Is stuff like Times New Viking considered garage rock? If so, they're fine but in small doses. I am more of a fan of their softer cousin, garage pop like Crocodiles, Dum Dum Girls, Vivian Girls, a thousand bands on bandcamp, etc.

Pinhead Gunpowder has some great songs. I actually thought some of the material from the band Green day made with guys from Devo "the Network" was pretty good.

I have to admit I never gave The Network a serious listen. I mostly just went through and sampled whatever was in the iTunes store.

I've been really into Pinhead Gunpowder's Goodbye Ellston Avenue lately. I think it's my favorite of their albums.
