however, i'm normally into the bass/drums/guitar business to overlook the vox more or less

it's not like they got a Zeitgeist mix

if eliciting several lethargic passing comments of "oh it's some rich kids aping led zeppelin" is equivalent to pissing off hipsters/elitists, sure

at least when Muse & Coldplay ripped off Radiohead they had the decency to add a layer of their own respective offensiveness/inoffensiveness to it to actually be recognizable in their inevitable millions of radio spins

I'm sure Goat Land's Meat are more than seasoned enough toward criticisms such as that

Greeting Poor Swedes are probably doing lines of sugar in a tour bus right now throwing little darts at a little paper pitchfork as we speak!

it's been a while since i've seen a truly venomous article from Pitchfork like that - partly cos i never read Pitchfork - but maybe they just needed to "scratch that itch" if you know what i mean

Yeah, I mean GVF aren't really my thing at all, I wouldn't put them on my Ipod or anything. But watching some of their live footage, they can actually play and have good chemistry with each other. It's definitely something lacking in todays music scene. So the fact that they're blowing up in such a big way can only be seen as a good thing or at least "better than the other new shit dominating the airwaves"... And hell, they'll act as a gateway for a lot of youngsters to the old classic rock that they might've otherwise not gotten into.

If anything the success of these guys might light a fire under the ass of these dinosaur bands like Smashing Pumpkins who are simply coasting along on the strength and goodwill of their old music.

lol

Axl Rose is the real deal. That's why he continues to be a legend while all of these hipster bands that are all the rage one day are quickly forgotten the next.

Remember when everyone was ranting and raving ecstatically about Animal Collective? You never hear about em anymore. Or how about 2 years ago when you and RBG were super excited about how "great" Lorde is... Funny, I don't hear you 2 going off about her anymore lol... Why is that Elph?

You and Elph were raging so hard about how great she is... Why is that different now? How come you were so excited about the artist one day and merely a few years later you never say a peep about her? What changed?

And that's precisely my point. These flavor of the weeks come along all the time with these elitist music fans going ape shit with excitement over them, but then a few years later they're onto the next fad while Axl and his fan-base remain bigger than ever.

He put out 1 amazing album and a couple pretty good albums and he's selling out sports stadiums 30 years after the fact. Goes to show how appreciated his talent is.

Axl Rose is a fucking chump loser who was in a clownish band a long time ago that has a big following because they fucking suck and appeal to the lowest common denominator bone heads like yourself.

You and elph were fawning over her and we were arguing about her for a few nights. Don't think I've forgotten about this.

Lorde is better than Axl Rose though, for sure. That's not exactly hard. Axl Rose fucking sucks and Guns and Roses is one of the most ridiculous bullshit bands ever. Right up there with Kiss and ACDC in terms of being absolute joke garbage rock

Guns and Roses is a poor man's Aerosmith, and Aerosmith fucking sucks hugely if that can even begin to accurately pinpoint the level of shittiness in Axl Rose's music

I'm pulling it up as we speak.

Or how about Hosier? Hell, I couldn't browse this forum without seeing people lose their shit in excitement over this guy... Where has the talk about him been lately? lol again here today, gone tomorrow. Axl Rose sustains. Love or hate the guy, that's another story, but he's stood the test of time in an industry with INCREDIBLY fickle fans.
