    Yellow Submarine is the best Beatles album.

    The Jonas Brothers are the greatest pop group of the last 34 years.

    Kid A is just a ripoff of the Beastie Boys.

    All of David Bowie's songs sound the same. All of them.

    The Stooges aren't punk.

    look at sig vvvv
    Best post of the thread, by far.

    No they're like some sort of alternative post-rock group.


    in my opinion

    United Abominations is my favorite Megadeth Album.

    I actually think Systematic Chaos is a great album (DT).

    Chinese Democracy is among my top 10 favorite albums (GnR)

    Just some I can think of right now...

    Bleach is even more overrated of a Nirvana album than Nevermind.

    Dream Theater, on balance, has been better with Jordan Rudess than with Kevin Moore.

    It's a travesty that we haven't seen more bands trying to revive the various styles of 80s music.

    The aesthetic of lo-fi annoys me to no end.

    The current era is the greatest time for music in the entirety of human history.

    Not as much as In Utero, though.

    Very unpopular, heavily disagree.

    By commercial standards, by Nirvana fan standards, or by random people on message boards standards?

    What annoys me more is when bands add a synthesizer to one of their songs, and say in interviews, "we were going for an 80's feel on that one".



    As for Nirvana... I'd say In Utero is their best, with Nevermind and Bleach on the same level for entirely different reasons.

    Also In Utero is their most creative and adventurous, but it falls flat on being completely dull and mediocre. Nevermind is Nirvana almost completely removed from their noise rock/noise punk roots and is hit/miss. Bleach is their noise rock/punk prime and has their best material.

    People around here seem to believe that since the first three songs are played so much, they aren't good, and since the album was a huge hit, saying it was their best would be way too "mainstream" and "uncool". But that's not my thang.

    I like every song on Nevermind and you really don't know the forum members at all if you think 'cool' and 'mainstream' are factors.

    I think OK Computer is overrated, and I like Early Beatles more than late Beatles.

    Not talking about you specifically. And btw, just because you read posts by a person on a video game forum doesn't mean you know them at all.

    Aside from their last couple of albums before Something for Everybody, I found Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! rather average.

    I can see some merit in Nickelback, and really haven't listened to ICP enough to comment. However, I think that pretty much every band falling under the crunk core genre, particularly brokeNCYDE, are all very adept at doing everything possible horribly wrong.
    I find Family Force 5 entertaining but that's just me ;)

    Also I actually enjoyed St.Anger. :eek:

    Also consider most of the reg's do talk to each other offsite; whether on instant messengers, p2p or w/e.

    Favorite Pink Floyd cd is Animals
    Favorite Yes cd is Drama
    Led Zeppelin II is their worst cd not counting Coda....

    Fair enough, but still. I wouldn't say you 'know' anyone until you've met them for real.

    Just a few comments on each.

    Bleach- I agree it has their best material in a song-by-song basis, but I feel like a lot of it was in imitation of their peers. Not that that's a bad thing, but I think they display the least amount of individuality on the album.

    Nevermind- Slightly overproduced, though has some fantastic songs (Something in the Way, Drain You, Lithium). The faster paced songs don't work as well, like Stay Away and Territorial Pissings.

    In Utero- I personally disagree about it being dull. I find "Scentless Apprentice", "Pennyroyal Tea", and "All Apologies" as exciting as anything on Bleach.

    This is completely incorrect, while some people mask their social ineptitude through the internet; their posts and typing is an extension of them and sometimes more honestly them (I'm a pretty reserved dude in reality for example, but I can be honest to myself and others online due to me not having that social ineptitude on the computer). You learn about peoples opinions, perspectives, viewpoints, quirks, dislikes, etc. all through posts and instant messenger. This is who somebody is, not to the extent of their quirks offsite the PC, but do not assume I don't know anyone because I talk to them on a digital box.

    I really don't find it driving, interesting, exciting. It's their most progressive-- I will not deny it, but I do not see the quality in it otherwise. Meh.

    ALSO IMITATION ISNT ALWAYS BADZ

    Oh yeah, Territorial Pissings rules.
