Pearl Jam is meh.  Alice in Chains was by far the best to come out of the grunge movement.

Grunge is a shitty label for a bunch of good bands that came from Seattle. The fact they played electric guitars seemed enough to warrant labelling them. Also Stone Temple Pilots were pretty cool.

Why do you keep mentioning Jeeper Creepers Jumbo?

Verily I say unto you,
Jeepers Creepers Jumbo is a perfect example of what music ought NOT to be.
Blessed be,
sirTheMore



I agree with you, but you don't need to keep talking about it.  We aren't going to forget.

Most delightful of gentlemen!
Do correct me if I happen to be misguided on this point, but it would be the policy of the Flat Earth Society Forums to "Nevar Forget."  Would that be a fair statement?
Best and brightest,
sirTheMore


Kind gentlemen, I do wish to declare that although these fora are for the sole purpose of education of the flat earth, I would also enjoy expressing my gratitude for the opportunity to post in them.  Thank you all for your time and interest in this subject.

I love Stone Temple Pilots.
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

STP is OK but I don't think they've ever been called Grunge, have they?  I only ever liked a couple of their songs though.

I don't think they are from Seattle, so I may be wrong there. Similar style and sound, definitely the right time.

The only cool bands are the ones you only have heard of and no one else, not even the band members.

Hmm, either I missed it the first time, or else someone has edited the first line of the Wikipedia article to define all forms of musical genre bias.  The rest of the article (and the other ones I linked), however, treat it simply as the bias in favor of classic rock.

I've developed an affinity for Cage The Elephant, but I can't take too much of them at once.

Has anyone here heard of Neutral Milk Hotel?

One of my hipster friends showed it to me saying it was the greatest album ever created ever.. so I listened to it.

I don't get it. It's just a guy with a nasally voice playing simple chords and lyrics that make no sense topped with strange brass instruments and buzzes going off.

Can someone explain why this band is so great?
I finally got around to hearing this. I don't get it either so here's my explanation; I listened to Bob Dylan Unplugged afterwards and pretty much most music will sound lame in comparison, but especially some guy with shitty nasally vocals playing the worst acoustic guitar you've ever heard. I think people like to like this because it is 'different' not because it is any good.

the biggest joke in music journalism

I thought music journalism was the joke.

Also, I will list (in no order except the the top five):

Frank Zappa
Captain Beefheart
Maurice Ravel
Olivier Messiaen
Gustav Mahler
Anton Webern
Béla Bartók
Iannis Xenakis
Alban Berg
Alexander Scriabin
Rudimentary Peni
Michael Tippett
Karlheinz Stockhausen
John Zorn
Mauricio Kagel
Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits
Pharoah Sanders
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Charles Ives
Domenico Scarlatti
Eric Dolphy
Anton Bruckner
Bernd Alois Zimmermann
Conlon Nancarrow
George Gershwin
Kurt Weill
Ruins
Ornette Coleman
Alfred Schnittke
Giuseppe Verdi
Harry Partch
Toru Takemitsu
Jane's Addiction
Antonín Dvořák

I would also list Wagner, as I do think Der Ring des Nibelungen is one of the greatest things ever, but I don't really like much of his other work beyond the overtures and preludes.
