      I can only tollerate Stairway to Heaven so many times in a one day.

      Every time they play the Rolling Stones, we have to hear Satisfaction.

      Every time they play Lynyrd Skynyrd, we have to hear Freebird.

      Every time they play STYX, we have to hear Come Sail Away.

      And if I hear Lola one more time. :brick:

      These bands are just a small example of the point I am trying to make. These bands have oodles of songs but we don't get to hear from that in depth library. Quite tiresome really.
      And this is why iPods are amazing.

      See when I listen to Zeppelin I listen to "When the Levee Breaks", and for the Stones I listen to "Can't You Hear me Knockin'". And I listen to "Waterloo Sunset" when I listen to the Kinks.

      Radio sucks.

          EXACTLY what i was thinking. . . BM, buddy, time to take charge of your listening experience! don't let the radio dictate what you listen to-- you're sure to be disappointed. . . if you don't have an iPod (or even if you do), i recommend the public library as a source for music-- check 'em out, you might be surprised what they've got. . . and best of all, it's free!

            And you can find some awesome stuff on YouTube, live performances and stuff. I'm still annoyed because I can't find a version of a Beatles song that I heard on YouTube.

              Eddie Van Halen created a new sound, essentially, in 1977.

              Then, Metallica did things no one else was doing in 1981.
              *ahem* slayer, anthrax were also doing that in 81.

              sorry couldn't help myself.

              But I agree with the rest of your post.

                I'm guilty of not liking most everything from the 80's, but there is some stuff there. I see New Wave as the last real innovative music. But music started this downspiral in the late 70's and never really recovered.

                IMO, rock needs a good infusion of blues (something it's gotten way too distanced from) and some people with a vision. The biggest problem with music nowadays is that record companies dictate what the vast majority of the country can listen to, not what the country WANTS to listen to. MTV=The Devil.

                And most Indie music is to pretentious I can't stand it.
                Like Jared said, there's bands primus, and faith no more who have done some very innovative stuff.


                And you can't say all music started a downward spiral in the 70's. I think you can say that about specific genres though.

                Because as a big fan of metal it didn't really get going until after the Big four of thrash and the american thrash movement of the early eighties, which of course progressed into the other metal subgenres (death, power metal, black metal, etc)

                  offtopic, but i've just got to ask-- what exactly IS the difference between "power metal" and "black metal," anyways?






                  is one more metally than the other? do black metal dudes laugh at power metal dudes for being wusses? and which is darker, black metal or death metal?

It's especially frustrating because there's people who know a little about it, but not much, so I'm stuck talking about "Twist and Shout".

                    So discuss Classic rock here!

                    Favorite bands, if you've seen them in concert, and all that fun stuff!
                    I think of Billy Joel as another artist performing classic rock. GOODNIGHT SAIGON, Strangers. Really, there are so many bands that just make you feel right at home when you hear their songs. Mommas and Poppas. Beatles. Styx. Don McLean (American Pie). ALICE'S RESTAURANT. I wouldn't really know where to begin or end, literally hundreds of outstanding songs that still sound just as good today. The kind of music that brought people together for one reason or another.

                        Alice's resteraunt is one of the best albums of all time, imo.

                          Our local classic rock channel used to be awesome until they changed their production group. We would hear rare and side B type music all day long. Not anymore. Now it's the same ol' crap over and over.

                          And Tesla does rock. They were awesome live. But that is another example of a band they can't expand on since we have to hear "Signs" every freaking time.

                          Radio does suck. The only time I am really stuck with it is in my garage or in my truck. Here at work and in the house, it's XM Radio! Radio stations complain all the time about satellite radio taking their listenership. Well... too bad. Why can't they seem to understand that people need variety? Don't even get me started on the top 40 stuff or even country music nowadays which I do enjoy.


                          If I am in a classic rock type mood, I usually go to the CD cabinet.

                            But I agree with the rest of your post.

                            Considering Anthrax didn't even play live until November of 1981, and their first demo in 1982 sounded very NWOBHM like, including covers of Maiden, Priest, and their faves KISS, I'm gonna have to disagree.


                            Metallica was more fully formed as a 'thrash' band right from the start.

                            Slayer also started in a more Maiden/Priest vein, while adding their now trademark pentagrams, spikes, and inverted crosses. They were more in line with what Metallica was doing, but Metallica left L.A. because of reisistance to the sound, and an infatuation with what Ratt and Motley Crue were doing. "Haunting the Chapel" (a GREAT EP), was the first thing I heard from them that I thought was 'thrashy", personally. Some kid in my Cub Scout troop had an older brother who had all of this stuff at the time. Freaked me out a bit.

                            Everybody's gotta elevate from the norm...
