|Bands I proudly rep.|
|1||Jack Off Jill|
The vocals are if a little girl experienced first handed the dark, twisted side of the world. Traditional 90's punk with a riot grrrl twist.
Mike Patton's awesome frontman methods + Some of the world's best musicians = One of the most underestimated and influential avant garde metal bands in history.
Dude, its the Residents. Need I say anything more?
L7 are grunge with a riot grrrl backbone. A snotty, L.A. driven band of delectability. Those who don't like it will get smacked with a used tampon in the face!
Once upon a time, Kittie were labeled as nu-metal goddesses. Then they were alt. metal. Now, they're just Kittie. Badass to the bone, Kittie have the looks, the riffs, the vocals, and are just modern metal proof that lacking a little testosterone does not mean that you can't kick some fuckin ass!
Death metal pioneers, Death, are every technical death metal kid's wet dream come to life. Sadly, they broke up a decade ago due to legendary vocalist's Chuck Schuldiner's unfortunate cancerous meeting. RIP to one of the greatest death metal bands I ever heard.
TWIZTID IS NOTHING LIKE ICP! I REPEAT, TWIZTID IS NOTHING LIKE ICP! True, the face paint is in tact, with the vicious rhymes, but other than that, Twiztid is on a whole other level of madman tendencies.
When I first heard of Bis, I was almost sure that they were a pop punk gem, plain and simple. Holy shit, was I ever wrong. Pulling influences from electronica, pop punk and good ol' fashioned alternative rock, Bis is a band to keep an eye on, as you can never be too sure on what music they exactly are. Each album is completely different than the other, which is enough of a reason for them to be on my list.
|9||Insane Clown Posse|
Hate 'em or love 'em, ICP are legends in their own right. With almost every obstacle known in the music business thrown in their way, ICP managed to overcome them, start their own career from the ground up, and have a skyscraper of success just towering over the pop acts of their time.
|10||Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13|
Their name is more than enough reason to look into them. Bottom line.
OLD MARILYN MANSON ONLY. I like industrial metal, I like shock rock and I like scaring parents. So, of course, I love me some Marilyn Manson.
|12||Cradle of Filth|
Whether they are black metal, gothic metal, or whatever, Cradle of Filth have successfully created their own brand of metal, combining symphonic melodies with ear piercing shrieks and growls from Mr. Filth himself. Great band if you have an open mind and a good ear for metal.
Combining various influences (AND I MEAN VARIOUS), IWABO created a toxic genre of extreme metal that combines unpredictability with chaotic stabs, and is one of the most ultimate tests of love or hate in the modern metal age.
|14||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
TDEP are badass. What more can I possibly say?
Combining tragic and traumatizing tales of abuse from singer Candice's childhood with some really kickass riffs, Eths are another one of my all time favorites in the modern metal scene.
Classic Thrash supergiants, Anthrax are one of the Big 4 in Thrash, and are one of my personal favorites in that genre.
|17||System of a Down|
Dude... their first album. Enough said.
Call Tairrie B what you want, but if you're into nu-metal, as I am, then Tura Satana are the band for you. Some call them Manhole, others call them Tura Satana, I call them SICK.
Otep is another modern metal gem, that most either love or hate (common theme???) Say what you want, but their pits are THE SHIT!
One of my all time favorite bands EVER. Switchblade Symphony cleverly combines darkwave with a little twist of goth rock and trip-hop. It is the perfect band for fans of goth rock and darkwave alike, and I am going to listen to 'The Three Calamities' right now.
One of my first favorite metal bands a few years back, Mushroomhead (contrary to popular rumor) is actually NOTHING like Slipknot! :O I know, shocker. They actually are a little more experimental than Slipknot, although I'm sure the mask thing will throw off lots of other so-called "metalheads."
Genitorturers are one of the few industrial metal bands from the 90's that still do... well, industrial metal. Having a loyal following consisting of pervs and metalheads alike, Genitorturers are a shock rock band worthy of tons of respect. I mean, would you expect a hardcore bondage metal show to last almost 20 years? Yeah, neither would I.
Their offensive lyrics and live shows are enough for them to be on my list as well.
A somewhat previous nu-metal/rapcore shadow to other bands of their time, (hed) P.E. developed to cover their punk roots, their rap roots, and be one of the biggest indie rapcore bands going right now.
|25||The Birthday Massacre|
Another one of my all time favorites. Their brilliant music videos, their daring attempts to throwback some new wave with goth rock intertwined (think 'The Cure' with a more haunting melody) and their sheer dedication to their fans are why I included them in my list. Great band, hands down. One of the most promising indie/gothic bands around nowadays.
|prepare for hate|
|2, 6 fuckin rule. 23 is cool. 17 had good stuff. ICP and several others on this list fucking suck|
|Fuck yeah GWAR|
|"TWIZTID IS NOTHING LIKE ICP! I REPEAT, TWIZTID IS NOTHING LIKE ICP!"|
yet ICP is also on your list
|shrapnel, you are 100% correct that ICP are on here. I just wanted it to make perfectly clear that Twiztid is pretty much nothing like ICP.|
|It's like for every good band you have to counteract it with five shitty bands.|
|Not gonna lie, don't like allot of these but their are a good 5 bands|
|mr bungle and gwar|
|Hmm... I've had a feeling that this list would mostly attract metalheads. And I await patiently for the mostly irrelevant ICP haters to come on next!|
|Your inclusion of CoF and "ganster rap" on here confirms my suspicion that you are in fact Hawks. |
|"I just wanted it to make perfectly clear that Twiztid is pretty much nothing like ICP."|
but you like them BOTH!
so why do you feel the need to make that distinction?
if I "rep'd" a certain artist and DIDN'T like ICP I would make it very clear that they don't sound like ICP, much like you just did there
|Hmm... gangster rap, eh? Well, I was gonna add N.W.A. but I figured I didnt have enough room. And shrapnel, I made that distinction because usually when ICP haters come on, they include ICP & Twiztid as if they are the same band, with the same message, etc. I just wanted to snuff off a piece of a hater's argument right off the get go.|
|And who the motherfuck is Hawks?|
|logic is so flawed i dont even|
|Logic? When it comes to my personal music choice, I dont need typical logic. Whenever you see Insane Clown Posse, Death, Bis and Residents meet, it will not be a typical music list, with careful picking, trying to only appeal to limited genres. I listen to tons of genres. So yes, fuck logic. When it comes to my music choice, I will go with what my ears like, versus what would be the "logical" artist to listen to.|
|25 is one of MY all time favourites!|
|Awesome to hear, bloc! :D|
|Good list, although mine would be a bit different, ie Deftones, Alice in Chains, QOTSA, Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Mastodon, Over-Reactor etc|
|Yes, I do enjoy Alice in Chains & Mastodon as well. |
|oh man and hed pe hahahahaha|
|Kris... are you implying ICP & Twiztid are gonna kill me? Or that I am going to kill myself from listening to them? I am a little unsure...|
|Ohhh... now I see. You're a fan of their music, Kris?|
|oh dear i think i'm talking to a slow person|
|Ohh, coulda fooled me. ;)|
|I can tell you love them so much. This is fun! I am getting SO many comments from people who just adore the bands on here! :D It's lovely!|
|That is your opinion, kind sir. But believe me, if I had the time to track down and shittalk on bands I do not enjoy, I would not have a life. I have a life to maintain. So, on that note, I will leave the schoolyard to go enjoy the life I live, rather than arguing with a bunch of inbreds who have nothing better to do than to hate on... *drumroll* ICP! :O Whoa, that's so advanced. So, later fuckers. I'm out to go stick your mother.|
|ur a true juggalo bro pce|
|You talk too much disco. hush.|
|Apparently the meth dealer is ready for some business!|
|"Good list, although mine would be a bit different, ie Deftones, Alice in Chains, QOTSA, Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Mastodon, Over-Reactor etc"|
In other words, "good bands"
|13... are you serial?|
|"With almost every obstacle known in the music business thrown in their way, ICP managed to overcome them"|
including lack of talent
|is this a JUGGALETTE|
|I remember listening to Kittie. |
That's about all I can say for that.
Mr. Bungle is pretty cool though.
|how is mr. bungle avant-garde?|
|unfortunate cancerous meeting|
|"how is mr. bungle avant-garde?"|
I want to know how it isn't
|this is like the good, the bad, and the ugly with some really good and mostly ugly.|
|It's like a bad movie that has a really hot chick in it that you have to keep watching on the off chance she's going to take off her shirt.|
|"In other words, "good bands""|
Well, there are actually some decent bands on this list, ie SOAD, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mr Bungle and Anthrax but yeah other than that this list is pretty shitty.
|Interesting list, gonna get a lot cause well this is sputnik, but I like most of these bands as well.|
13,17,21 need more love around here.
