All I'm hoping for is that one of these Frank Constanza type of rants gets me into the memory jogger thread at least once this year.

Also, Tex is wrong about Jane Says. Hating Been Caught Stealing is completely acceptable. Hating anything that has Caribbean steel drums in it is simply wrong and deeply anti-human.

That's what made the Girls Gone Wild commercials so awesome-- steel drums and titties.





Is everyone mad here?
Of course they are, and you are too... otherwise, you wouldn't have come here.

Gonna go find a Nickelback song with steel drums and troll the hell out of you when I do, or they finally do a song with them.

I loved Somewhere in Time. I always found "Stranger In a Strange Land" to sound a lot like Queensryche, though.

Great topic - I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Metallica. I can do without most of their Black Album onward, but "Fuel", "Unforgiven II", and "Don't Tread on Me" are the absolute pits.

Let's see...New Order's "True Faith". Great band, but I'm sick of that song. Led Zep's "All of My Love" and all of Plant's solo stuff sucks. The Cure's "Friday I'm In Love" is pretty awful. I'll think of more later.

Put 'Lovesong" on the top of the list for The Cure. Hate that one.

For Alice in Chains...."No Excuses"

What are we doing here with all this hate? Writing new lyrics to Castratikron?

Here's some more:

REM's "Everybody Hurts". Nice melody, but so whiny. Also, everything on Monster other than "Crush With Eyeliner".

U2's "Beautiful Day".

Michael Jackson's "Man In the Mirror". Always hated it.

Motley Crue's "Without You". Easily their shittiest ballad.

AC/DC's "Hell's Bells". I'll probably get shit for this one, but it's just boring to me.

Living Colour's "Cult of Personality". Great riff, but the song has aged really badly and is extremely overplayed. It's just not representative of their best stuff (Time's Up is one of my favorite albums of all times).

You're nuts. Overplayed, yes. But great song that has probably gotten millions of goth nerds laid that wouldn't have otherwise.

AC/DC is the band that everyone likes but I don't. I think all AC/DC is boring except for Dirty Deeds.

Goths repopulating. Making more goths. I can't think of anything positive about that. More reason to hate the overplayed shitty song.

Ha!

Agreed on the AC/DC indifference, Thai. I realize many bands have the same sound, more or less, record-to-record but they are SERIOUSLY of the "every song sounds the same" ilk.

I love AC/DC with Bon Scott. I never liked them with Brian Johnson; that's where every song sounds the same. I won't ever understand how "Money Talks" became such a big hit.

I love old Johnny Cash and some of his American Recording stuff with Rick Rubin was good but I cannot for the life of me take his cover of Hurt seriously.

And Tex, No Excuses is great.

AC/DC is one of my favorite bands but even I agree that most of their stuff sounds the same. And some of those 80's albums are just the same old same old. With the exception of those, it seems every album in the Johnson years has a few great songs and then the rest are just filler. But Back In Black is just an amazing album from front to back, even their "filler" songs.

In the vein of "bands you love with songs that all sound the same (for the most part)" - Motorhead! I freakin' love me some Motorhead but let's call a spade a spade (or ACE of spades in this case, AMIRITE?!?)

Yeah, Motörhead is probably worse about than anyone. But it's cool. Because it's Motörhead.

I also like how Motörhead automatically gets autocorrected.

This is Alice in Chains at their absolute pop-iest radio friendly worst. And it got (and still gets) too much radio airplay because it is pop-y and radio friendly. And therefore sucks relative to their overall body of work, and in general. Please just accept that I am right.

I hear ya. "No Excuses" had bongos for Chrissakes.

I can't look at that whole era too fondly. I liked Nirvana/AIC/Pearl Jam/Soundgarden as much as the next guy, but the groups they spawned were all so fucking awful. How many turks formed bands with pseudo-Cobain lyrics, sludgy AIC chords, and a singer doing his worst Eddie Vedder "yeaAHH" imitation? All of 'em, that's how many. Worse yet, at the time I lived in Florida where Creed started and got way too much airplay, which was just so brutal. The "modern rock" station there still plays Candlebox regularly. There was a lot to rebel against in that shithole.

When you started your second paragraph, I immediately thought of Creed and Candlebox, so right there with you.


Although I now have that one majorly retched Candlebox song stuck in my head. The one that says "suffer" and "yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah", which is spot on for me this moment.

In a cruel twist of irony, my first concert ever was Metallica in 1994 and Alice In Chains was supposed to open but Layne was going through some of his "issues" so who took their place?? Wait for it.....wait for it......

CANDLEBOX!!

I went to that show in San Diego. I had already seen Metallica twice by then and my main readon for getting those tickets was to see AIC.

This was the lineup:
Metallica
Candlebox (ugh)
Suicidal Tendencies (yeah!)
Fight (Rob Halford's kinda crappy but pretty heavy band that did the very cool "Little Crazy" song that was Sabu's entrance theme in ECW)

My guess: They wanted another Seattle band to tour with them, but Soundgarden was busy and Nirvana was dead. Yes, Candlebox are from Seattle.

That being said, if the new AIC with William DuVall as lead singer comes to your town - GO SEE THEM. I know it's not Layne, but he's great, they still sound like AIC, their old songs sound great with him, and their new material with him is good.

And screw you guys. I liked No Excuses.

I thought that Cantrell was doing the bulk of the vocals now and the new guy was more of a backing singer.

No, they both do leads - Cantrell does more than he used to, but William still does at least half of them. It's similar to the Tripod album, where Cantrell started doing more leads, or they both do leads in a song, and they do a lot more harmonies than before. DuVall and Cantrell sing harmonies, it sounds very much like Layne and Cantrell harmonies.

William sings all of Layne's parts in the older songs and is placed in center of the stage. For all the new songs, he plays rhythm guitar as well but for all the old songs, it's just him and the mic.

Works for me regardless. I thought Lesson Learned turned out to be the best song any version of AIC's ever done.

From what I remember, all of Candlebox's songs had that "yeah yeah yeah yeah" chorus. I wish SNL had done some sort of spoof on those commercials selling hits collections with '90s grunge, where every song had some form of "yeah yeah YEAH" playing.
