Whoomp (There It Is)

I assume they get paid every time that gets played in a stadium. So, that's nice. There it is.

harlock: neilbradley: This list reminds me how bitter I became toward popular music in the 90s. The vast majority is throw-away talentless crap.

As an 80's kid, right there with you. 1989 was the last year when top 40 was not hip hop, rap and grunge. Oh how I hated seattle rock, and still do. The early 90s was when it became fashionable for young talentless male vocalists to sing off key and badly on purpose, and any group of kids with a garage and a stereo set could churn out poorly produced, angsty rubbish and get a recording contract.

FTA: All of these records came out in 1993, which was a damn good year for music.

Are you serious? I can't imagine a more festering pile of shiat, for the most part.


No. Nobody likes mainstream '80s music except people your age. While most mainstream music from any era is garbage, I can put up with '60s, '70s, and early '90s, but the '80s can go die in a fire.

See, I feel that way about anything past 1994. Presidents of the United States, 7 MARY 7, Live, Space Hog, that farking orange haired idiot singing about tangerines or whatever, on and on with shiatty crybaby crap, trying to copy what they thought was grunge.

The best of the last 20 years is worse than the worst of the 80's.

Back then, there were no less than 5 record stores in town.

Now only Boo Boo's survives, and I don't think it makes money.

I went to High School in the late 80's and can confirm ( at least in my humble opinion) that with a few exceptions ( eg. the Pixies) the music was indeed, absolute shiat....

Icky Mettle was just reissued last year and is still worlds better than most of the ball-less, boring shiate that passes for indie "rock" these days.

I'm curious as to which Presidents of the United States song even comes close to grunge..

Also, why are 80s kids so cranky? Run out of coke, or Metamucil?

Own 8 of them in full, have many other tracks from the rest. Still listen to Siamese Dream & August and Everything After (suck it haters, Anna Begins, Sullivan Street, A Murder of One are all excellent)

janet. - one of my first purchases, didn't appreciate how filthy it was lyrically until later - a few damn good setting the mood tracks
 
2013-01-03 03:11:02 PM

spiralscratch: Ah, good times, I bought about half of those when I was working in a music store. Saw many of them live also.

Some honorable mentions:

Catherine Wheel - Chrome


Oh hell to the yes. Such a great band.

Did a quick check and unfortunately Compulsion released "Comforter" in 1994, could have sworn it was earlier.

I'd agree, but that was '92, per wiki. So were Blues For The Red Sun, Vulgar Display of Power, Images and Words, Angel Dust, Soul Of A New Machine, Rage Against The Machine, and Broken.

Tool, Pearl Jam, and Radiohead are the only ones to make it out of that time period without them being forever tied to that era. Nirvana, well we will never really know for sure how that would have turned out.

Ahh, I was hoping Paw was long gone and forgotten. Met them once, hanging out in a record store in Overland Park.

Once upon a time the Lawrence music scene was supposed to be "the next Seattle" with bands like Danger Bob, Season To Risk (Song in the movie Strange Days), Shiner, Molly McGuire, Stick (song in PCU), Pamper the Madman... Even Billy Goat if we add Topeka.

I'd include at least Yo La Tengo, Bjork, and Mariah Carey in that list.

spiralscratch: Nirvana, well we will never really know for sure how that would have turned out.


They would have broken up years ago.

Grohl, the talent in the band, would have went on to do what he is doing. Corbain would be playing Melvins tribute shows in clubs and probably happy to do so, bad mouthing Grohl the whole time anyway. But, the reality is Corbain probably would have ODed and died already or be rotting in prison for killing his wife.

All three of them would have to hear daily about reunion tour from nostalgia hungry 90's kids.

He's a great drummer, too bad that wasn't his role in the mediocre Foo Fighters.

he quoted spiralscratch quoting someone else.


but I otherwise agree with barneyfifesbullet's summation. Nirvana probably would've continued for an album or two to dwindling quality and sales, then broken up. I don't think their legacy would be nearly what it is today had Kurt lived.

And we'd have to find another singer / guitarist to heap undue praise on for that particular part of the 90's.

Or, maybe not.
 
2013-01-04 03:56:17 PM

PacManDreaming: TheXerox: It's fun to see where the bands/musicians went over the ensuing 20 years. Also brings back a crapton of memories.

My thoughts, exactly. There were several popular groups from that time period(Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots and Soundgarden) that I couldn't stand, but I like hearing them today, just for the nostalgia factor. And other bands, that I liked back then, you couldn't pay me to listen to the crap they put out today(looking at you RHCP - should've quit recording after Mother's Milk, although, BSSM had a couple of decent songs).


AHEM, Stadium Arcadium is awesome. As is Blood Sugar Sex Magic. There are little jewels on most of their other albums too.
Get bent.

Nope. There were a few good ones on BSSM, after that they went to shiat. It's like they were a completely different band. I suggest you check out Freaky Styley, The Uplift Mofo Party Plan and Mother's Milk. After listening to those, you'll throw Stadium Arcadium and pretty much everything else they've released in the last 20 years into the trash where it belongs.

Yup. "Under The Bridge" is pretty much the point where the RHCP went from good to bad.
