Ahhh!! !! !! Bagpipes!! !! !! ! :x Evil noise!! !!

I'm sorry. I've heard them before. I like the songs WITHOUT bagpipes.



I'm sorry, but you don't know what your missing. Bagpipes are amazing instruments, and they are so much fun to play, if you don't like them, too bad, but the songs will not sound right with out them.

OK, OK..... enough amateur-hour opinion...... let a true music afficionado give you taste-challenged mortals the real 911: :wink:

The Manics - Very, very good band (especially in their earlier days), but not quite great...... Not too far off though.

The Smiths - One of the very greatest bands ever to have danced embarassingly on Top Of The Pops wearing an NHS hearing aid and a tree in their back pocket. Had the unique power to make you laugh and cry, sometimes simultaneously - absolute genius!

The Cure - Another all-time great band - 25 years of no compromise (mostly) brilliance: 'nuff said.

Placebo - Absolutely great in small doses - do tend to get a bit much over a whole album's distance though.....

Radiohead - Utterly brilliant, innovative and challenging. Best band of the 90s and noughties, second only (probably) to Mansun.

Garbage - Get a dictionary, look up the word "average" - chances are there'll be a picture of Garbage there to illustrate the true meaning of the word.

Judas Priest - The living embodiment of "Spinal Tap". Utterly embarrassing and the (probably unintentionally?) funniest looking band ever!

Black Sabbath/Ozzy - Have their moments I suppose..... Ozzy's done well for a Brummie booze artist anyway.... Utterly outclassed on all levels by Purple, Zeppelin et al though.

Alice Cooper - OKish.....

Marilyn Manson - Ooooh look... Wow!! !! ! A man in makeup singing about Satan...... that's just so...... 1970s....... Its just been done so many times before, so many times better before I'm afraid...... Go buy yourself some old Bowie albums and see how its really done, kids. :wink:

Korn - Urrrghhhh!! !! :? Sound exactly the same as Metallica would if somebody buried their amps at the bottom of the sea.....

Rage Against the Machine - Good in very small doses. I just don't understand though why a perfectly good guitarist such as Mr. Morello would want to go to so much effort to make his guitar sound like a fricking DJ though? :? A proper guitarist should play proper guitar, not make "rappy" noises! What a waste......

Nine Inch Nails - Good in medium doses - a bit overrated though I feel.

Bagpipes - The infernal, unholy spawn of Satan's tone-deaf, lesser known (but still remarkably evil) brother Marmaduke Zeebub.

Rap "Music" of any kind - the only thing in the known universe that makes bagpipes sound good in comparison. Sorry guys, but if you listen to rap then you have the musical appreciation and intelligence of a staple gun....

Celtic music - Huh? 8O

Yay!! !! ! :D I can't stand bagpipes. I have someone to agree with again. Woo-hoo!! !! Nice to see you're back. I'd love to hear what you think of Aerosmith.

Tell me when and where Manson said he was pro-Satan? How can you judge someone when you know nothing about them.

I don't listen to much rap at all, but it does get better than what you hear on the radio. Considering that rap/hip-hop has such a big influence on all kinds of music, I don't see how you can say any kind of it is bad.

Me and Marilyn are like that money-baby (/me crosses fingers). :wink:

Basically, yes..... The electric guitar is a wonderful instrument that makes wondeful noises (especially when I'm playing it :wink:), so why use it to make distasteful noise instead? There are ample implements in the world that make distasteful noise very readily, so use one of those instead...... You wouldn't use the canvas of the Mona Lisa to mop up an oil-spill - you'd use an oily rag. You shouldn't use a guitar to make "rappy" noises, you should use a power drill or somesuch. Simple.

Given that having my kneecaps removed with tweezers is preferable to listening to any rap I've heard on radio, that isn't a tremendous achievement or endorsement now, is it? :wink:
