I once asked Billy to punch me in the pleasure center and he apparently thought I meant my nose

The Darkness were being very tongue in cheek and at least the tunes were pretty great. I thought the lemon twigs were extremely hack and then Get a Van Fleet comes along and blows them out of the water.

I have an easy rule, if a band's favorite band is the beatles or led zeppelin - they probably suck.

I've started covering Greta Van Fleet more recently, they get very good numbers. Especially the shit about them and Zeppelin.

I sort of get this now as I have aged. I was really into 90s electronica and I have recently gotten into chill wave and chill house because it activates my pleasure centers. Though to be fair I have no idea the ages of the people who make it.
It's funny, I thought the older folks would rip on em for being a knock-off, but if you look at the comments on youtube, it's full of guys in their 50's and 60's fawning over them.

How many Pumpkin rip off bands have there been since the 90s? Silversun Pickups, early Feeder, who else?

Question

Isn't Boris just a bad tribute band, imitating another famous band with every new album...?

I think they are the most talented cover band ever. I tried to like it as its own. Can't happen.

No way. Integrity is important for me with music.

Cool video but they don't do that cool "still hear you sayin" background vocal part for some reason... That's my favorite part of the whole song!

Man, if they ever do a Fleetwood Mac biopic, they'd have to get Bradley Cooper to play the role of Buckingham

Dead wringer
