a pretty neat site, it maps a path between any two artists, showing the degrees of separation.

Here's an interesting one:

I think the game with this should be to try to rack up the highest degrees of seperation

Karl Burns has apparently been in everything. If I put The Fall in he's the connection no matter what other band I put in

I put fifteen steps between the Cure and One direction. It was a bit lame towards the end what they considered connected though

Elphenor
11-08-2014, 04:33 PM
Damn there is 15 steps

Elijah Moon
11-08-2014, 04:33 PM
My best was 14 steps between Guided By Voices and The Rasmus.

Elijah Moon
11-08-2014, 04:34 PM
Ah, sixteen steps between Guided By Voices and Him.

The exploding boy
11-08-2014, 04:36 PM
Disappointingly slayer and julio iglesias only had 11 steps.

Elphenor
11-08-2014, 04:38 PM
Somehow The Cure and Joy Division have 10 steps

Elphenor
11-08-2014, 04:38 PM
Ah, sixteen steps between Guided By Voices and Him.

NEW HIGH SCORE

The exploding boy
11-08-2014, 04:43 PM
I put 16 between the kinks and chvrches.

I tried to think really old band and pretty recent band.

The exploding boy
11-08-2014, 04:44 PM
oh wait. i thought 15 was still th ehigh score. damn

Can't find a path between Evil Pimp and Nite Jewel

Pretty sure that beats all your steps

slunken

that happens when you enter an artist that's not recognized in their database. fairly common.

yeah i tried getting a 1-step with Smashing Pumpkins & R.E.M. expecting a simple "Mike Mills played on Siamese Dream" but instead it was some convoluted 8-part path ending with the dude who filled in for berry after he left

whatever, site's still awesome

amazing how there are literally 3 times as many steps between two british alternative rock bands from the 00s as there are between Captain fucking Beefheart & Jennifer Lopez, though

dreams of glass you're so fucking stupid

"what's your point"

what do you think my point is

obviously one would think there would be less steps between arctic monkeys and muse or whoever than captain beefheart and jennifer lopez. learn how to think before your next "internet venture"

NOFX is great. A lot of their more current albums are really awesome too. Their latest one kinda sucked but Coaster and Wolves in wolves clothing are both fantastic.

I have no idea why people regard NOFX as some pathetic band to make fun of here. They've been one of the most consistent punk bands out there and they're always switching shit up and keeping things interesting.

My guess is it comes down to ignorance mostly. Anyhow, cool to see another NOFX fan here:2thumbsup:

the other thing is why did the arctic monkeys show up so often in the furthest steps? didn't they work with both bob rock and rick rubin? doesn't that connect you to everything ever, right there?
