Don't get me wrong - there are a handful of songs they produced that are Rock N Roll classics of the highest caliber. But - as a band - for a lineup of hits... I think I'd rather see Def Leppard. 

It is like the Grateful Dead. They're just kind of up on a pedestal. 

Ok... not Def Leppard. That was being mean. Lynyrd Skynyrd, for sure though. I'll take Freebird live over Stairway live, any day.

 Perhaps, but Kashmir is kinda perfect.



Kashmir is a wonderful song, probably my favorite Zep tune, but they are not the greatest band ever.  I really don't need to hear the same songs repeated on "get the led out!" every night.

I was at a swing band show and they asked if we had any requests so I got my friend to shout "PLAY STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN" and the guitarist dutifully started in on it and the rest of the band followed along as the lead singer's jaw dropped.  He yelled at them "We're a swing band!" so they started swinging it, which was even funnier, and it went along for a few more bars before the band leader was all "okay okay, knock it off" and it's still one of my favourite live show memories.

I love campfire songs.  What do you mean by easy?   You could learn half a dozen chords on a guitar and play a million of them.

Well, today I learned "Under the Milky Way Tonight," by the Church. Dude taught it to me when I bought another guitar from him. 

But I'm thinking songs that everybody knows and loves to hear by the campfire. I've got Maggie May, Bad Moon Rising, Every Rose... 

I want easy sing along songs... even cowboy ones like coming around the mountain... but I was hoping some of the people here had some favorites. 
Thanks for dropping by, IG. Sorry I keep disappearing.

He croons it a little, but I mean... It's Rick Astley. Still, a good performance and I'm glad Rick is finally making some money from internet fame.
 
 

Donovan Colbert
I don't think he croons any much more than David Grohl.
And at least he isn't a sellout. 🙂

    Grohl started out playing the part of a Seattle drummer in an anti-establishment, underground music scene that arguably became the most influential and authentic band of the grunge scene. But really Grohl is just a studio artist. If it were metal, he would be metal, if it were New Wave, he would be wearing a skinny tie and wrap around sunglasses. So, he became an Alternative Coffee Shop Friend's Soundtrack artist putting out catchy pop-rock songs and started playing DNC fundraisers.
    Meh. He is good at what he does... writing catchy little songs that don't mean anything and are good to pass the time while driving. He is a generic rock star.
    I mean, the world needs posers - and Mr. Grohl was willing to take one for the team.

    Black Hole Sun was a good one, and if it weren't overplayed these 26 years later I would probably still be in love with it. I still prefer Everlong.

    Plus, you know... probably a hundred OTHER songs before you get to Everlong or My Hero.
    And if "overplayed" is the metric, then BOTH of those titles are off the table completely. I can't remember the last time I heard Black Hole Sun in public. I can't remember the last time I was out where I didn't hear at least ONE of these Foo Fighter tunes at some point in the night... often both of them.

    I've heard BHS covered by several bands and played in public about 30 times in the last two years. It could just be that I'm up here in the PNW where there is more nostalgia for Seattle's brief conquest of the radio.

    Cobain and Cornell both farted and made stronger songs than Grohl. And to suggest that Grohl is "Shakespearean" in his lyrical composition just loses all of its impact compared to the way Cornell put together words.
    The worst thing is that the world eats people like Cobain and Cornell - but Grohl is one guy who will NEVER kill himself.

    Oh, no. I deliberately avoided comparing Grohl's lyrics to Shakespeare's. Just the emotion. Grohl can get extreme leverage out of grunts and yadda yaddas when he's really trying. Everlong isn't a lyrical masterpiece. The guts are what the song is about…

    Nirvana was inconsistent, and a little more literal and less intellectual - but Soundgarden, Audioslave, and most of Cornell's projects were consistently some of the best music not just of their era, but in the history of rock and roll.
    Meanwhile, Grohl is over there being Beto O'rourke's more successful twin.

    Grohl has written a lot of bland songs. It is a bit sad. He didn't start out in Seattle though. He came from Virginia, where he played in a band in the DC punk scene called Scream. Their music can be found on the Dischord label, possibly the most successful truly independent label around. The guy that runs Dischord has the most "street cred" ever, the epitome of non-sellouts. So Grohl has authentic roots, regardless of his choice to go big and cash in.
    Anyway, Scream played a show here in southeast Washington in the mid 80s with a local band called Diddly Squat. The bass player for that band was none other than Nate Mendel, bass player in Galleon's Lap, Christ on a Crutch, Sunny Day Real Estate, and of course Foo Fighters.

    Okay, so here's the question, 
    Isaac Stanfield
    . Does making big money equal selling out? Is there something inauthentic about Grohl's trajectory? I felt like Donovan's assessment of him as a studio musician was very accurate. I think that means comparing him to Cobain in some kind of "authenticity of voice" metric is misguided. He plays the drums and writes songs. He's good enough to be world famous for what that's worth. Does any of this really say "sellout" to you, and why?

    The amount of money you make doesn't determine sellout status. I'm a radical sandwich anarchist, arbitrary standards don't count for me. I like Grohl, he seems like he's having fun and doing basically what he wants. I even like some of his music. I don't think he's necessarily a studio musician though. That term generally refers to a hired gun who pays on albums by various other artists. I think what he's doing is just making some decent rocking songs and then filling up the rest of the space on the record with, well, filler. The reason for doing that is to be able to put the album out and go on tour and make tons of money. Is that selling out? I don't know.

    Teen Spirit is a great song to me because it is a scathing social criticism of the kind of cliques I was a part of at that time in my life, and what Kurt and those like him didn't recognize is that we KNEW it and owned it. We loved movies like Heathers and completely acknowledged that they captured the shallow, vapid, self-absorbed and generational nature of our elite social groups that made the majority of campus feel excluded.
    "Our little group has always been it always will until the end."
    Yes, Kurt. Exactly. My parents ran in cliques in these schools, their parents ran in cliques in these schools, and my grandchildren will run in cliques in these schools. But you nailed the description.
    Oh well, whatever... nevermind...

    I'm quite fond of this one too. The imagery, and the seemingly non-sensical lyrics, still paint a picture of dependency that is easily individually interpreted. Kurt was an abstract artist with words - and I don't think Grohl has that kind of talent as a poet.

    But Smashing Pumpkins are also have a catalog of songs that rank higher on the "most influential songs," of the 90s and also have incredible, powerful, emotional lyrics, composition and delivery.
    Claiming Everylong and My Hero are two of the most influential songs of the 90s is like claiming Rock Star by Smash Mouth is one of the most influential songs of the early 2000's.
    They were certainly POPULAR songs. 🙂
    And I don't think Billy Corgan ever sold out who he is, who he was. In fact, he seemed to double down on becoming MORE of whatever it is he is as time went on. "This is what you WANT of me? How about I give you THIS instead, and you fuck off?"

    All just great lines that work with the rest of the song to tell a story.
    In particular his music was evocative of the kind of redneck, small Pacific Northwest/Coastal Ranges, Sierra Ranges poor white trash culture that you only really know about and understand if you grew up in or around those regions and had a lot of interaction with those cultures. His songs are cut from the same fabric as the movie "The River's Edge".
    Oddly enough - Eminem's authenticity comes from a similar cultural experience, I think - only a Detroit rust-belt version of it.
    Kurt Cobain was an ARTIST who wanted to create art and figured out how to make a living off of it. Kurt was creating art for himself that appealed to other people.
    Dave Grohl wanted to make a living and decided to use ART as the means to that end - in my opinion. Dave makes art that he thinks other people will buy, and probably wouldn't if there wasn't money in it.
    But it isn't really about how much money. It is more about motive.

Yeah, it is a novel idea. 

I was sitting around the office, and Danzig came on back in the warehouse - and it struck me how MUCH of a metal mood I was in. Generally I'm enjoying music that taps into the primal urge of males, and I think in particular males of European descent - to go on a march that crushes everything that stands before it. Drums and guitars in the beat of galloping horses and a general sense of unrestrained, unreasoning lust for destruction and misery. 

Yeah. That is where I'm at right now - and I haven't been in that mood for a long time. But I'm in mode, "Let God Sort 'em Out," at the moment. 

I could listen to Megadeth all day long and never get bored.

Just heard "Right Now," on the radio back in the warehouse - and it occurred to me that although we assume the political affiliation of a lot of classic rock super stars - they've been an oddly silent bunch the last 4 years, for the most part.

Which lead me to consider that they *could* be vocal if they want. Sammy Hagar has gotten his feelings about the death of Eddie Van Halen out there. 


And that led me to realize, Sammy Hagar is 73 years old. He has to realize his time is running low and that the last 50 years blew by like a breeze, and that if he has another 20, the last few will probably be the worst in his life. 


This probably frames his politics in a way where it doesn't get much of a rise out of him. He is at the point in life where the things that matter are different. 

There is no doubt that Right Now is the best thing that Van Hagar produced, and they never quite found that magic again as a band. I like Finish What you Started a lot too. Other than that, I can't think of a lot of Van Hagar era songs I really enjoy. 

Maybe "Right Now," is the theme song of 2020.

But I think it represents part of what I never liked about Sammy Hagar. He is just complete party rock. He is basically LMFAO. Nothing is serious to him, and never has been. It is all comic-book rock. 

There is nothing wrong with that - but - I feel like he was actually detached from what a lot of his fans were *experiencing*. That is where bands like Sound Garden and Nirvana and Pearl Jam came from - from the DIY, direct influence of 80's punk... music that enfranchised kids not by promising them a rock and roll lifestyle they would never achieve, but that confronted that head on.

"Pink soon marries, and is about to complete his "wall" ("Empty Spaces"). While touring in America, he turns to a willing groupie ("Young Lust"). After learning of his wife's infidelity, he brings the groupie back to his hotel room, only to trash it in a violent fit of rage, terrifying the groupie out of the room ("One of My Turns"). Pink, depressed, thinks about his wife, and feels trapped in his room ("Don't Leave Me Now"), and dismisses every traumatic experience he has ever had as a "brick" in the metaphorical wall ("Another Brick in the Wall, Part 3"), Pink's wall is now finished, completing his total isolation from human contact ("Goodbye Cruel World")."

So, The Wall itself doesn't hold up excellent for me. It is the beginning of what I think of as a very typical 80's Arena Band sound where young bands from the 60s and 70s started to edge into an adult contemporary sound. Glen Fry and Don Henley were pursuing similar artistic paths and sounds around this time, although Pink Floyd still have more of an edge than those two. 


Despite that, both the narrative in the movie and the album of Pink and his wife becoming distant from one another, discovering she is having an affair, turning to a groupie, and ultimately preferring to abuse her mentally by subjecting her to a rage-inspired fit is one of the strongest parts of the album and the film. 

Pink Floyd's themes and the own narratives of Gilmore and uh... the other dude - both speak to a contempt for people in general, their audience in particular. They both seem like fairly arrogant rock-star types who think they're better than most people. Ironically, they came to despise their fans for the very things that made them such a largely successful band. Of course, they have expressed how guilty they feel about this, how conflicted - but it doesn't really change the core revelation about their personalities. They're actually *arrogant* people. 

But, they nailed it in that a "revenge fuck," even a very attractive one - when you have been rejected by someone you actually were invested in is a very hollow feeling - and actually tends to make the rejection feel worse. 

These songs, in their intended order, are my favorite part of the album and the movie. It was the most relatable the story ever got to anyone who wasn't an English orphan of the war raised by an overbearing mother and attending English schools who eventually became a rockstar.

All Apologies is a perfect song. And such a timely sentiment for a generation that could not have performed what was expected of it both because it wasn't possible and because it would have been a pathetic underachievement. 

Work for one company and retire with a big pension? No, we're building a new, virtual universe.

And I'm thrilled to see our Everything versus Foo Fighters discussion on here. That's just amazing.

I think it was possible - but that future was sold out from under us, by the fucking Boomers who were in control of the Government for the last 40 years. 

Everyone *else* got to ride that gravy train, but my generation was just getting started when they outsourced and offshored it on us - and our best chance of ever getting it back probably just got cheated out of re-election. 

And we're here on this system because that same status quo has already marginalized and muzzled us in the virtual universe. Face it, this is the virtual reality equivalent of a shanty-town ghetto - cardboard houses on disused and abandoned rpads on the decaying outskirt of the sparkling cities that that Information Highway goes right through. 

Maybe we should start making soap.
