cocaine is a hell of a drug
you answered your own question....sara smile is all world but its really their only great song...i wont hate on them but they certainly arent worth of a strong defense
the steely dan hate here is sickening....you dont like SD you gots no soul
Rich Girl is a fucking jam
Their 70's stuff was very good, but the 80's were dreck by comparison
70's: Still thinking
80's; Starship (who can forget We Built This City)
90's Oasis (Are there more pretentious douchebags than the Gallaghers?)
I don't feel like Starship was anywhere near popular enough to be included in this discussion.
Oasis? Really? BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
I remember liking it back then, but Champagne Supernova is a pretty awful song when I hear it now.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
I think Oasis was a very good band. They get shit on alot because of the infighting and very outspoken belief that they were the biggest band on earth, even though they were always overshadowed by somone else. They really wanted the limelight and when they were in it, acted like a bunch of asses. I'm trying to think of a pop-culture comparison for them, but i dont think Nickelback is it.
I feel that Green Day is approaching a Nickelbackian level. Not sure what decade they would fall into.
Don't Look Back in Anger is pretty much enough on its own to ensure Oasis' place in greatness.
Read my writings to nobody in general:
I don't think some of you guys get this premise.
Viper (speaking of Lonely People) agrees with your assessment of America......although, his comments to me were a little more....colorful.
Hall and Oates have some cheesy songs but they've got some good ones too that still hold up. No one is going to enjoy Nickleback in 25 years.
"You Make My Dreams" is such a fun song and was used perfectly in one of the best musical scenes ever in "500 Days of Summer."
Viper and I are cut from the same cloth in this field. We are absolutely on the same page throughout this entire thread. Fistbump Moodies
America is a great Nickelbackish choice. Popular, ripped off real artists because their own sound sucked (Neil Young in Horse with No Name, George Harrison with Sister Golden Hair, had absolutely dreadful lyrics - I've been there, you've been here...we ain't had no time to drink that beer. WTF?!?!!
America is a nice choice for the 70's
Wtf America isn’t bad
"Genesis. Although slightly edged out by the hippie jam bands, second-generation prog rockers like Genesis are a close contender for all-time worst trend in music. Supposedly early Genesis with Peter Gabriel was better, but if you’ve heard any of their music from the Phil Collins era then you are probably not eager to explore their back catalog."
Hey rock writer guy, way to miss the point. Peter Gabriel era Genesis was fantastic.
I do see his point. To go from early stuff like Watcher of the Skies to Sussudio is like going from White Rabbitt to We Built This City.
you must like Nickelback
You've got it backwards -- I was the one who picked America -- Viper pooped on my selection.
Not at all
has Chicago been mentioned for the 80's?
that's another band that went the way of Jefferson Airplane to Starship. Edgy and a great sound in the 70's to an absolute shitshow of suck in the 80's.
The answer to all these inexplicably popular bands is... women.
The ladies love Cetera,...the ladies love Nickelback.
sometimes i feel like nickelback is unfairly picked on. not because they're any good, but because most post-grunge acts basically sound the same. it's just a terrible genre.
Phatboy if you had any balls I'd meet you at the AFA Boxing gym and have Coach Weichers put some gloves on us.
Yeah, Viper and I make our split on America. They were awful
WRT Oasis, I don't like their music or publicity-mongering. Ironic how people put down Creed for being a Pearl Jam clone yet sing the praises of Oasis who are nothing more than Beatles wannabes.
For me, the 80's were my teenage/early 20's years. Good time music for the good times in my life. Clubbing 4-5 nights a week, partying all weekend, hanging out with friends and working just enough to afford all of the above. 1991-2001 is pretty much a musical black hole, as the grunge and post-grunge music did not appeal to me. I'd rather have a couple of shots and play air guitar to Nothin' But a Good Time than take an anti-depressant and slash my wrists to Jeremy. I also prefer short dresses and high heels over flannel shirts and hiking boots, but that's another thread.
Yup, they're the only explanation for Dan Fogelberg.....
Then Vixen should win for the 80's, although they probably weren't popular enough for the original premise.
