The Beatles, Radiohead, The Smiths, The Clash. Alll pretty obvious choices, I know.

Because why not?
I think my choice is pretty obvious.

by "greatest" you mean personal favorite?

or does "of all time" mean this is going to be a competition thread between objectively big acts like Stones, Beatles, Led Zep, Pink Floyd and I don't know, The Who Deep Purple Queen Depeche Mode Sabbath Genesis Oasis Radiohead

also does only rock count or can we in<a>clude punk and trip hop and stuff
and is Bowie out or do we count him as band

Elphenor
11-07-2014, 11:50 AM
I just used the title to copy the other thread.

But I guess the best question is "What do you think is the "objectively" greatest Rock/alternative music artist that the UK ever produced"

But you can judge that by any criteria you want

myosis

i guess beatles are first, then rolling stones, then radiohead... we can contest and debate, but what's the point?
by 'greatest' i'm talking as objectively as possible as to how much buzz they can generate internationally vs. quality of general output and long-lasting reputation.

the reason for the other thread was that none of the bands considered the greatest are american. there is only bob dylan at the top.

and thinking about it, smashing pumpkins actually might have had a chance at it, had they remained a top band

Elphenor

Why do the greatest lists always skip over post-punk? It's weird to me.

Imo at LEAST The Smiths should be considered to be on the same level as The Beatles

Well on an absolutely subjective level, The Cure.


On a somewhat less biased (but still biased) level, maybe The Clash.


Otherwise, most important, most influential rock band of all time is naturally The Beatles. And i don't even have one beatles mp3. But that can't now or ever truly be debated.

I stand by my Manic Street Preachers choice, if only for this song. One of my favourite and (in my opinion) emotive riffs, and brilliant lyrics (if a tad despondent and nihilistic).

Culture sucks down words
Itemise loathing and feed yourself smiles
Organise your safe tribal war
Hurt, maim, kill and enslave the ghetto

Each day living out a lie
Life sold cheaply forever, ever, ever

Under neon loneliness, motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness, motorcycle emptiness

Life lies a slow suicide
Orthodox dreams and symbolic myths
From feudal serf to spender
This wonderful world of purchase power

Just like lungs sucking on air
Survivals natural as sorrow, sorrow, sorrow

Under neon loneliness, motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness, motorcycle emptiness

All we want from you are the kicks you've given us
All we want from you are the kicks you've given us
All we want from you are the kicks you've given us
All we want from you are the kicks you've given us

Under neon loneliness, motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness, motorcycle emptiness

Drive away and it's the same
Everywhere death row, everyone's a victim
Your joys are counterfeit
This happiness corrupt political shit

Living life like a comatose
Ego loaded and swallowed, swallow, swallow

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness everlasting nothingness

They still had Richey Edwards as their chief lyricist back then.

I think the song "'Yes" from 'The Holy Bible' was Richey's best lyric, although it's pretty bleak stuff.

They combined Reggae, funk, and blues all together in a way that's been extremely influential but never replicated

London Calling and Sandinista are consistently ranked among the top Rock albums of all time by critics and Rock fans alike and cover an absurd amount of musical ground

At the same time they have one of the greatest pure punk releases with their self titled album

houseofglass11
11-08-2014, 12:55 PM
Better than Hendrix, Sabbath, and Zeppelin? Wow, LOL. You're definitely in the minority there. I wouldn't ever choose to listen to the Clash on my own. What a boring band. Rock the Casbah? Should I stay or should I go? What shite songs.

Elphenor
11-08-2014, 01:32 PM
Sure. But they're a little more interesting and thus out of your typical Dad's tastes. My Dad certainly doesn't listen to The Clash.

While Zep, Sabbath, and Hendrix are straight forward Blues Rock, pretty much exactly what Dad Rock describes.

Elphenor
11-08-2014, 01:33 PM
But I'm not the one even trying to use Dad Rock as an argument against the validity of a band being the greatest ever, you are

Elphenor
11-08-2014, 01:51 PM
It should be mentioned on the same Album as the absolute pop brilliance of "Should I stay or should I go" and "Rock the Casbah"(that you can still hear played everywhere today) you also get artistic gold like this:

Aside from apples and oranges and all.... count me in that minority.

but if the pop singles, which by the way are actually really good, is all you use to rate the value of The Clash then i don't even know why you should be addressed on this one.

I can't even tell that they're black because as I've explained it's not the actual race that bugs me of course. I don't like any white rappers either.

I've discovered that I just don't like to take any genres straight. I don't like straight Blues, or straight heavy Metal, or straight Hip-Hop or straight Reggae.

But when you throw a bunch of genres together and then throw personality and lyrics over it it's my favorite thing on the planet

The Kinks make extremely melodic music. Almost every song has them have melodies that have different pitches from note to note.

Kind of hard to explain what I mean but for an extreme example look at "People Take Pictures of Each Other", if you play the vocal line on a piano, every note is played on a different key, going up the piano then down, compared to Kesha's Tik Tok (again, an extreme example but it's the first one that came to mind), almost every note of the vocal line is the same.

Greates British Rock Band is Led Zepplin IMO. This band had it all, big hair, oversexed lead singer with a falsetto, masturbatory guitar solos that meant nothing except to the ego that wrote them, a drummer that was more beast than man, and a classically trained bassist/keyboardist whose arrangements tied it all together into something radio-ready.

They defecated in people's shoes and airplane seats, got blow jobs in the wings between sets from 14 year old groupies, snorted crack of hooker's asses and threw tvs out of hotel windows. The original and best cock-rockers, living the disgusting hedonistic dream of every horny guy on the planet. Nobody can repeat it.

And you know what we learned from that experience? Those guys get old or die just like everybody else, and on the way they get really mediocre at whatever you originally found them interesting for. Way to depress us, guys. Thanks for nothing.

I'd agree, but Tricky was part of Massive Attack before he was Tricky. I didn't count him as a British band.
If elphy starts a thread "greatest UK musician" I'll rank Tricky over Bowie (and don't expect anyone here to agree.)

I was mildly obsessed with this years back, but I could never explain it well. I was like, a lot of "tunes" come from mostly rhythm, whereas others are more melodious, employing many different notes. Something like that. It led me to listen to a lot of Beach Boys (understandably) and also early Elton John (maybe a bit strange?).

Nowadays, I appreciate tunes of all kinds. I mean some of the (more experimental) songs on 'Kid A' are more rhythmic than melodic, but I enjoy them as much as "florid" melodies. When I posted that Blink 182 song (the only one I really like), 'I Miss You' I did notice that the chorus was just two notes used ten times till the end of the hook, but it's still a great chorus to me.

Shallowed
11-09-2014, 07:14 AM
I Miss You has a somewhat weakly written melody, but there's a lot more things happening in that song that make it good. There's a lot of movement in that song, and it has a really unusual arrangement for a pop song. There's not many pop songs that don't alternate between verse and chorus, this song has two different verses each sung by different singers in different vocal registers, followed by the chorus, middle eight, and chorus again.

Even though it was a huge departure in style for them, it's still one of their most popular songs, after All the Small things and Dammit.

There is pretty much nothing objective about art and i wish most people stopped trying to pretend there is. As such, everyone's opinion about music, or art as a whole, is pretty much invalid. There's only people you agree or disagree with.

I mean i shove my opinions about art into people's faces all the time and i like to think i'm right, of course, but i'm no more right or wrong than the next guy. Even if that next guy would be like, John Peel (well if we're talking about music).

Casablanca is not objectively a good film, the Great Gatsby is not objectively a good book, Led Zeppelin is not objectively a good band. Because i really don't think there's any such thing. There's sometimes a majority of people agreeing that so and so is a great artist. Or that such and such is great art. That's just the opinion of a majority. It doesn't make it objectively good. And doesn't make anyone who disagrees ignorant or invalidates their opinion.

There are objective things about art it's just the question of what's "better" or what's the "best" or even what's "good" are completely subjective because those words don't mean anything.

I would objectively say Led Zeppelin is a technically gifted band with a very very talented guitarist and a singer with quite a lot of range and a charismatic personality.
They objectively inspire a large fan base and their music objectively makes a lot of people jump up and down.

I subjectively find them boring as shit.

limp bizkit sucks i'm sure there's some kind of statistical way to prove it. i'm working on it.

Do you think that you wouldn't hate Limp Bizkit as much if they weren't phenomenally popular? Because then you could just point and laugh at them without being vitriol.

Thought this was salient to the discussion...surely any band of oldies that doesn't reunite for money gets a few points. Even if plant was the only one who stopped it from happening...

they do and the reason is that there's no zep without bonham

granted there was a page & plant tour

I think the main reason they don't reform is because theres no way Plant can hit most of those notes anymore. They did that one off reunion thing and Plant was singing everything several octaves lower. It sounded like shit.

Theres tons of other nu-metal bands that are much more shitty and deserving of hate than Limp Bizkit. What about Slipknot? wearing little Halloween masks like a bunch of fools? Or how about Powerman 5000? Or the many Limp knockoffs like Saliva and that click click boom band?

I'm apparently not as much of a connoisseur of buttrock as you are

out of all of those bands only one of them has a total man child shithead pretending to be a rapper in it

Yeah, Durst kinda sucks. But it was a tight band.

As embarrassing as Durst was, he still had some decent rhymes
