The Savagers. You've never heard them, but they once recorded in a studio where I worked during the eighties,

Been trying to find that record again for years, actually.


OMFG. The Internet is incredible. An info page on the band, with art work and there's even a torrent on the Pirate Bay of the songs. You have to understand that this was a self-financed EP in 1 000 copies, so... Aw, man, I hope to get some seed action on that torrent..

I pretty much loathe what I've heard by Linkin Park.

do they even count as metal? 

just out of curiosity though, how come you dont like them?  generally i like the sound they have, but i find their lyrics to be insanely vapid and empty.

Personally I can't stand the guy's voice - he sounds like he's trying to shit a square brick. The faux-rap stink of it might also put some people off. I mean, I like their guitar, but once they start sampling things or using that squeaky turntable noise it kind of spirals down the drain for me (especially when I hear their singer bitching like there's a doberman eating him from the knees up).

i like the techno sound of it (or turntable or whatever you want to call it) i got no problem with the sound.  his whiny lyrics blows,  if a doberman WAS eating him then at least his bitching would make some sort of sense.

You've got a point. I have to admit that I like techno a bit too for some reason I can't quite put my finger on. I guess what really gets me is when the one other guy in the band breaks out into rapping in the middle of the chorus... blech.

i despise rap culture.  its weird that i dont mind their rapping.  cant explain and dont intend to try.  its just like gorrillaz when they rap i usually dont have a problem with it for some reason.

I thought about it that too but i dont think its the reason. 
the guy in gorrillaz song clint eastwood is white?  i thought he was black.  but ive never seen him so i have no idea.   In fact come to think of it ive never seen the linkon park guys either.  I could also say i like black eyed peas and outcast too, but in general i dont like rap.  nor do i usually like rap/rock sound  ala kid rock.

lol, I dont think thats what he meant (and I'm pretty sure the Gorillaz rapper is black) but

Lincoln Park is horrible for the simple reason that their rapper sucks... when you lose that guy they dont bug me nearly as much
Rap/Metal shows some promise but I'm not really sure anyone will ever do it better than Rage Against the Machine

Dan the Automator is the guy in Clint Eastwood and yes, he is black.

So you like the Black Eyed Peas (in their current incarnation) and you feel comfortable dumping on other people's music?



Also, as a serious question.  Why would you do to the trouble to 'despise' a style of music?  It's not aimed at you in the first place and it's not going to change or go away because of your opinion so it seems like a lot of wasted emotion to me. 

I'll usually laugh whenever anyone mentions 'Creed' or 'Nickleback' in a serious manner but I couldn't bring myself to care enough about them to feel hate.

Rage Against the Machine

heh, they sound bad ass, truly.  yet the more i hear their lyrics the less i can stand them for their actual views.  although its nice to see some groups actually have real ideals and political ideas rather than just vague feelings about politics.  personally though everytime i hear the line "are the same that burn crosses"  (admittedly cant remember whole line) my knuckles go white with rage.

black eyed peas:no not in their current incarnation but their older stuff. 

please quit taking my posts so damned literally.  i dislike rap PERSONALLY its my subjective opinion.  I dont like the sound of it usually and i like the lyrics less more often than not.  hate is a strong word if taken literally but thats clearly not what i meant anyone to do.  Further im not dumping on ANYONES music, i said I dont like parks lyrics.  Its all subjective.
