|Recommend Stuff To Stay Away From and Stuff to listen to! Volune. 1|
I'm going to show you 15 of my favorite Artists/Records.

why do you hate coheed
|Big Baby Jesus|
|Because they suck|
because they suck big donkey balls
There's 14 other artists, too, Ya know.
|Dear god, stay away from Portugal. The Man. That band in so incredibly awful.|
|haha true dat, i fell asleep during one of Portugal the Man's sets. when i woke up they were doing a really bad cover of the Beatles 'Helter Skelter'. it felt like waking up into a bad dream. |
|waiter: you vultures was a pretty good record, imo|
|fourteen other artists that sucks|
|why do you hate Thrice, I'm a fucking Sad Panda now, for 6, try Massive Attack(Mezzanine)|
|listen to king crimson and the blood brothers|
|Big Baby Jesus|
|Everyone Loves Massive Attack. I got all their shit. Nice recommendation, tho.|
|High five on the Thrice sucking...but Coheed? Coheed? Take thy beak from out thine heart...|
Get Protest the Hero immediately (ur tastes say to me that Kezia would be the better album to start with)
Get DEP's Irony is a Dead Scene because that combines Mike Patton with the band and makes sheer ear sex.
|Wow...had a nice long-ass comment explaining recommends for all of these, and it told me it was too long. Dammit...why is there even a limit?|
No matter, we'll do it this way:
#1 - Notes: (Don't like Thrice? That's terrible...) DEP and FOT don't have the same sound as TMV, but they do have the same crazy, almost bi-polar disregard for regular structured music
Recommend: Protest the Hero
#2 - Notes: If you don't like Sage Francis, you might not like The Coup, either. Still, try 'em out and see. They're a bit more, ahh, bouncy than Sage. MF Doom is one of my favorite rappers right now.
Recommend: All rap artists on Epitaph (Atmosphere, Busdriver, etc....just sample 'em), DangerDoom (MF Doom and Danger Mouse), Deltron 3030
#3 - Notes: No clue who these guys are.
#4 - Recommends: Nas, Mos Def, Talib Kwali, Asheru, Pharoahe Monch, Ghostface Killah, GZA
#5 - Notes: Hard to recommend...
#6 - Notes: No Oakenfold? Shame...
Recommends: X-ecutioners, Fischerspooner, Chemical Brothers...might like LCD SS...
#7 - Recommends: perhaps Gym Class Heroes and/or Rage Against the Machine
#8 - Notes: No idea
#9 - Notes: about the closest I come to name-dropping funk artists is early 80's Chili Peppers. Good music, though...
#10 - Notes: Checked them out on YouTube just now. Freaky.
Recommends: Reminds me a bit of Dream Theater, but only in structure. Not sure what to recommend instead...
#11 - Notes: GREAT band!
Recommends: The Eagles are awesome...also John Frusciante's solo work
#12 - Recommends: See #4
#13 - Notes: Great band!
Recommends: Silent Civilian/Spineshank, German band Rammstein
#14/15 - Notes: No Clue
Etc. - Recommends: Dream Theater, Muse, Radiohead, Fair To Midland, Powerman 5000, NOMAK, Smashing Pumpkins, A Perfect Circle, Deftones.
Great variety! Hope I've helped out a bit...
|Heh heh...knew I would do this...|
You might also check out Aceyalone, or his underground group project he did called Haiku d'Etat.
|Big Baby Jesus|
|Extremely helpful, bro. Thanks! Please accept $21 in Jew Gold as a token of my appreciation. |
I've got one more: Sigur Ros (Norwegian Post-Rock band).
|Congrads on hating coheed, but hating Thrice? Since when did it become cool to hate on them?|
|Big Baby Jesus|
|Who said it was cool? I just can't fucking stand the 2 and a half albums I've heard from them. I could understand why one wouldn't get me hating them, tho.|
|The Coup are incredible. Best hip hop group since Wu Tang. Got a good mix of G-Funk and old school vibes yet combining it with a more modern sound to create something truly awesome. I would reccomend getting Steal this Album first|
I wholeheartedly reccomend The Meters, a great mix of soul and funk. Get Rejuvenation
If you like the more fucked up metal side of Mr. Bungle, get some Fantomas. It a supergroup of Patton, Bungle bassist Dunn, Dave Lombardo of Slayer on drums and Buzz Osbourne from the Melvins. It is insane in the right way. theyre debut is a good place to start, although their sound alters on each record
