When STP came around they were just another grunge type of band. Lead singer sounded suspiciously like Ed Vedder, nothing really distinguished them from the other alt rock bands. As grunge died and STP trucked on, they finally started to get the critical praise they deserved. They made five albums and all five were great hard rock albums. I have been a fan for awhile and i still can spin an STP album and not be bored. My personal fav is NO.4 . Soundgarden? Probably the best of the all the grunge bands. Funny, cause they were the band that everyone thought would break out first. Ironically, they finally REALLY hit the mainstream toward the end of the grunge era. Their last two albums are in my top 20 all time albums, a list that does not really exsist but if it did am sure they would be there. Did you guys know that Chris Cornell is coming out with his third solo album? Did you know that the whole album was co produced co written with...... TIMBALAND??? WTF? I heard a few songs on it and their actually decent. Think Chris Cornell with hip hop beats and an R&B vibe. I give him the benefit of the doubt but damn would I really really like to see a soundgarden reunion.

STP... awful. Just awful. I couldn't stand them in the 90s. Can't stand them now. Their music makes me want to kick puppies.

I love Soundgarden, but how can you mention Chris Cornell and not Kim Thayil. He was every bit as important to that band if not more. You act like Cornell is the messiah or something. And his new stuff sucks. I've heard it. I think he plays for the other team now.

I'm gonna have to agree with you on this one. I was more into Pearl Jam when I was a budding teen and I really like Eddie's new stuff. "Rise Up" is a great song so is "Big Hard Sun". Maybe it's the 14 year old in me but I still dig him. STP and Soundgarden AND Alice in Chains just sounded like whining to me. I think Chris Cornell made #1 on some greatest rock and roll singers list in Rolling Stone a few years ago...whatever. I suppose they never heard Gavin from Dredg or Robert Plant. I mean, really.
So, what the hell is the name of that song, Grassy?

At the time, I DID like Alice in Chains....I really liked Layne Staley's voice and the songs were decent. I did NOT like Jerry Cantrell (who did most/all the work) and skipped over the songs I felt he sang too much in, LOL. Pearl Jam? Eh. Liked 'em but again, I never had that feeling of anything *special* from them- Though I do enjoy most of their music. I'd say in the 90's my grunge/alternative interests were mostly in Nirvana, NIN, Radiohead, Korn - Probably listened most to them as far as "mainstream-ish". My "underground" favs were L7, Pixies, Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, etc (BTW, I know they ain't that far underground - but that's as low as my teeny-bopper self got.

Chris Cornell is the messiah? Who the hell said that? And I agree that Kim was very important the soundgarden sound too. But not as important as Chris. He WAS the singer and MAIN songwriter. But I only mention Cornell apart from Soundgarden as a band because he WAS the frontman and today he is a bit more relevant then the other Soundgarden members. Also, because what he is currently doing is such a notable departure from what he is known for, good or bad.
I listen to Pearl Jam the most of all the grunge bands because they are actually still around, still putting out albums on a consistent basis. BUT they lost their energy and rawness a long time ago. And honestly, AIC Soundgarden are both better then Pearl Jam. Pearl jam tried so hard to show that they are not down with the mainstream that in the process they lost the all their balls. And Cornell as a singer (and songwriter in my opinon, not counting the newer stuff) shits on Gavin form Dredg. Now, Robert Plant IS Robert Plant so I cant say much there. Though outside of Zep I think he sucks.

"Jizzlobber" by Faith No More.






Angel Dust, effing epic album.

Best line from a review ever; "Caution; this album may scare children and animals."

Mike Patton one of the best vocalists ever and one sick mothereffer.

An even stobe a pulse of flashing
Hatelights of synthetic souls massproduced
Hammered into shape a sign of times dreams
Turn into systems a new way a new breed
Implanted in our minds

Here I am in the hand of a sterile hate
The new control I can not wake
I'm not a sleep

Name that song
I want to embrace my desire to feel the rhythm,
to feel connected enough to step aside and
weep like a widow to feel inspired to fathom the power,
to witness the beauty to bathe in the fountain
to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human.

I don't know that one Learian.

Here's one I'll be surprised if anyone gets it.

"Sometimes you're made to feel as if your love's a crime --
But nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight --
Got to kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight"

Up. Down. Turnaround.
Please don't let me hit the ground.
Tonight I think I'll walk alone.
I'll find myself as I go home.

"Oh it's the last time, it's the last time"
That would be Moby "Temptation" my friend. I'm not a huge Moby fan,
but I had an ex that used to LOVE to DRILL him into my head on a nightly basis.

Yeah I know I have this satiable, masochistic, thirst for women who practice strange, courtship rituals....
but, admitting it is the first step. :shock:

I'm at a complete loss :?:
Got to kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight?
Now that's an interesting line.
I'd like to hear the whole song.


Just incase anyone was wondering,
my song was Meshuggah's "destroy erase improve"


.......not any Meshuggah fans in the house huh?
Nobody's into that speedy math-metal? :wink:

Ok I'll give you a hint on this one then.....
Does anyone own Guitar Hero II?
This one is in the bonus songs.

"I see her in my dreams
Wish that she wasnt there
But she still haunts me and I
Still feel her breath on me
Still want to taste her skin
But I know that would kill me"

Name that song.
I want to embrace my desire to feel the rhythm,

The song is "Temptation" but it was originally done by New Order.

The second song is "Lovers in a Dangerous Time" by Bruce Cockburn.

I've never heard Moby's version, but here's the original by New Order from the nut hugging shorts days of 1984.

Damn, I'm definitely more horribly pathetic at this then I thought. :evil:
