Well maybe not powter but you get my meaning. I don't see how that music fits in to any situation. Not at parties, not at night, not when your driving, not when your f***ing. There's just no place for it. Actually maybe a death metal f*ck would be alright, if your really pissed at the person.


Some Death Metal bands are good.

I used to listen to Death all the time.
i listened to Leprosy exclusively for about a month, Spiritual Healing was pretty good too.

Although i'm not too fond of European death metal, Pestilence kicked a lot of ass.


Death is good... haven't listened to them in years, though. I believe they had an instrumental called Textures that I am especially fond of.

Anything played by Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Angelo Batio, or any of their type of hyperspeed shredding guitarists. They have phenomenal chops, but no taste! I'd rather listen to David Gilmour or Mark Knopfler or Carlos Santana any day over those ridiculous egomaniacs.

I mean, at some point you stop being impressed with the speed, and just start saying "What's the fucking POINT???"

To which I'd add Steve Hackett, Allan Holdsworth, Jeck Beck, Adrian Belew, the insane but talented Robert Fripp, Robin Trower ( who, after learning some alien finger exercises from le Fripp, went out and did Bridge of Sighs ) and one of these days put an ear to the multiple solos Mick Box jacks into the song Salisbury by Uriah Heep. Speed withhout grace, without soul ( tell me that's not David Gilmour's soul pouring out of your speakers during Time from Dark Side of the Moon ) is just quick noise. Composition has got to count for something. Melody. Purpose.
Gilmour and Santana.
Christ had twins.
I wonder if Jesus could smoke a mean lyre?

Anything by Lady GaGa makes me want to claw out my eyeballs.

Several years ago, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake co-headlined a tour. I had built some stage effects equipment for Christina. I was called out to Chicago to repair this equipment, and while I was there I was required to sit through the concert. Guess who was the opening act. If you said the Black Eyed Peas, you win the Golden Turd. I had to watch their performance while not puking, and that was NOT EASY! I'd never heard of them before, but they immediately took first place in my personal Most Vomit-Wrenching Music Acts of All Time. Christina herself wasn't much better. Fortunately, I didn't have to hang around to see Justin Timberlake's set. I might have died of popmusicebolavirus or something. I mean it. I've seen concerts I've loved, but this show was one I wanted to run screaming from.
