band sucks so no loss
I don't know why they get so much hate. Both albums were solid imo...
Digging: Ondatropica - Ondatropica
Digging: The Verve - The Verve
going to assume that's the mike patton vid
Their second album was already recorded with a different lineup wasn't it?
Digging: Frank Ocean - Blonde
rams waggin' hard
most boring band in existance
the music wasn't really awful, it was just the definition of bland and uninspired
Yeah, I side with this guy.
Mike Patton will be happy
ok, not sad but not happy about this
yeah does anybody really care if he releases this new album or not
Cosmic Egg > Wolfmother
the new album will be released under his own name, with several different other musicians filling the rest of the band's roles throughout the album.
isn't that basically just what wolfmother has always been anyway
Digging: Lamb of God - VII: Sturm und Drang
I can't see where all the hate comes from. Wolfmother's great. I mean, I see not liking them for Andrew's high voice or because they're not the most original band on the block, but I see almost Nickelback level hate for these guys all over. I don't see that as very necessary.
Here's where the hate comes from:
They are a carbon-copy of 70's classic rock. Their riffs sound like Zeppelin/Sabbath b-sides, which while appealing to people who fans of that band who don't mind hearing recycled music, is irritating to people like myself who love those bands (Sabbath more so in my case) and don't see why a band should be able to make a living recycling someone else's musical vision and throwing in meaningless lyrics.
They are to Zep/Sabbath what Airbourne is to AC/DC, they would be more respected as a top-knotch cover band than a second rate rip-off.
classic rock sucks anyways. unless it's the real deal (zep and ac/dc) and not some THIRD rate ripoff shit (wolfmom and airboring). otherwise it's just meh, stuck in the 70s old dad rock
"Mike Patton will be happy"
The Joker and The Theif was an awesome song.
cosmic egg was in no way better than s/t. Stockdale turned into a douche after touring s/t overseas. His stage presence nowadays is downright ridiculous.
I thought they broke up like two years ago.
First album was good but overplayed as fuck when it came out, second album was average but not terrible. I'll check this out but I'm not expecting much. Apparently Andrew Stockdale is the biggest douchebag in Australia, which is why his past members left.
Digging: Edan - Beauty and the Beat
Friend of a friend knows Andrew. I met him before, nice guy, but his band weren't that good.
He is probably a really difficult person. That sucks.
"Wolfmother, YOU SUCK!" -Mike Patton
lol. Mike Patton - "like seriously... what year are we in!!!"
band is atrocious
Saw them open for the Smashing Pumpkins last year. Far and away the most pathetic and yet somehow pretentious set I've ever seen. God it was awful. Luckily I got to watch Nicole Fiorentino do her thing for the rest of the night.
Listen to The Sword instead, people. Nothing to see here.
the sword are poop too but okay at least they're not wolfmother
aw I like the first album probably because of nostalgia but I don't think I even heard Cosmic Egg in full
the Sword aren't poop *cries and runs away*
i didn't even realise people hated this band, only heard woman which is a good song
Patton is a little bitch in this video
