a21schizoidman;2109544 said:but the title of the thread has linkin park mentioned, making this about King Crimson would be an insult to KC
Insane3;2109608 said:Or that simply enjoy music that they have heard very multiple times before. I don't enjoy Aerosmith and I have been exposed to them a lot. I'll don't think I'll ever get my friends to like Gentle Giant no matter how I try. They just don't have enough interest in music to appreciate technical skills. Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. It just makes me mad I can't talk about music with most of the people I know. I also think instead of saying a band (LP) sucks balls, we should propose similar (and better... in our opinion) bands.
a21schizoidman;2109619 said:but in order to get them to listen to other bands, we need to convince them how much linkin park sucks by introducing the other bands!but since im at school, i cant post good music right now
Insane3;2109633 said:What are you studying? (Since nobody wants to talk about LP... obviously lol)

instantdeath999;2109655 said:From my experience, attempting to "convince" a person that a band they like sucks normally doesn't do any good... more often than not, it does the opposite.Algebra, on the other hand, needs to die in a fire.
instantdeath999;2109631 said:Chester, I think he has a good voice.
Onslaught_fei;2109708 said:You know, Ive actually seen LP twice in concert. (I have seen so many bands, a large chunk of whom I do not actively listen to or claim to be a fan). Once was solely because of my wife, shes a fan, and the other time they toured with Metallica (Big company of us, multiple cars and big road trip).When Im watching a band live, especially one who Im not familiar or think Im familiar with, I scrutinize them heavily. I was expecting his voice to have been fleshed out and smoothed out in the studio and horrible live but his live performance (and it was on a DVD they released, this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R71Jrv0Kp28. My group is in the front row and Im actually visible a few times) was spot on.I mean, I know they are stupidly popular but in all honesty I would not write their talent off. My wife claims they toured 90% of the year during their 1st and 2nd albums and you have to strike something, maybe not instrumental talent, to sell almost 25 million of the same ****ing album.
instantdeath999;2109732 said:I'll actually say that Chester is not a bad singer at all. I've only seen a live DVD, but he could actually replicate his studio vocals, something that can't be said about the vast majority of vocalists from the nu-metal movement. I actually like some of the vocally driven songs, like "In Pieces". Of course, the band itself is very simple.
Onslaught_fei;2109741 said:The guitars are pretty ****ing horrible.
instantdeath999;2109745 said:Yes, they are. Which is why I like In Pieces. Almost no guitars.I also don't really care for the rapping.
Onslaught_fei;2109786 said:Never heard the song so I just listened to it. Wheres the rapping? The guitar seemed like it was gonna be a rhythm instrument as it always is (playing only 1 note a measure there) with this band but then it shifted to a lead guitar and did a guitar solo. Strange. I dunno, not familiar with anything really beyond their first album I think, when my wife and I were dating going to concerts with the crowd all the time.
instantdeath999;2109829 said:The third album features almost no rapping, if i remember correctly.
Onslaught_fei;2109839 said:So what genre is it? ;p
WhiffleBallTony;2109878 said:However, do we really have to bash mainstream bands? It's like there's a constant struggle between obscure music fans and people who listen to the radio. It really pisses me off, and I would love to see people just realize that there is such thing as personal taste. Sure, they should be exposed to more bands that they would like, but that's their decision. People have different interests and music isn't one for most people.
instantdeath999;2109892 said:Traitor. We'll hang him at dawn.It's a musical elitists sacred duty to bash mainstream bands. And in case the sarcasm wasn't thick enough... I agree 100%.
