Don't call the guy stupid because he doesn't recognize your music...

Unless, of course, he listens to Rapanese...

I ran 12 miles today, and during that time I listened to three albums by Taproot on random.

Rap ?  The only rapper I can name off the top of my head is that dog guy that was on Spike's video game awards.  I turned it off before he started "singing".  Come to think of it, I turned off the whole show..it was stupid.

Led Zeppelin ?  Everyone I've known that listens to him is a pothead.  You'd rather everyone be like that ?

I'm astonished. You must totally avoid pop music. Your music, such as I could find on the iTunes store, is quite somber... sounds like the great-grandchildren of Joy Division. (That is not meant as snide.)

Hmm..Aerosmith were on a commercial I believe.  avoid of pop ?  They sounded like rock to me.  Haven't heard of the others.

Somber, eh ?  Not all bands.  It just happens that the iTunes music store has about five of the bands that I like on it, and it so happens that the two from that list have long, slow, mellow songs.  [Well, Neurosis has some strong sections in there.  Their pre-2000 stuff is bad, except for Enemy of the Sun].  Who is Joy Division ?

iTunes Music Store sucks..I use Metal-Archives.com and RockDetector.com
RockDetector is more thorough in telling me what kind of music and the biography, but MArchives has a much easier Discography and more unknown bands.

Well, anyway..I'm a bit off topic here.  I am sorry.  I'll remove it if need be.

Sure Led, Pink, Jethro, and Steely hang out together.  Go surfin' and stuff.

Hey if you want some great music to listen to, pop your Marathon 1 CD in and listen to Power of Seven music.  It brings it all home for me.

The kind of music you listen to does not make you a pothead, or anything else, in my opinion.

Generalizations are to be avoided, as is judging someone on his musical taste.  Just because I've never heard of any of your bands doesn't mean, well, anything, except that I've never heard of them.

Joy Division was a late 70's band, labelled "post-punk."  They had a heavy synth sound, and they are a "right mood" band for me.  (Gotta be in the right mood.)  The remaining members (after the lead singer suicided) became the band New Order.  A good example of their sound would be the song "Love Will Tear Us Apart."  That one you can hear on the iTunes store.  If you listen to it and then 1) break up with your significant other, 2) drink vodka, then 3) lose your job,  it isn't my fault.  =)

Led Zeppelin...  Gaah.  I'm grateful, and impressed, that no one has written an insulting post to you that asks "are you under fourteen?"  You might just Wikipedia the band.  I think I can fairly say that most rock historians, modern rock stars, and many listeners would support that they are the keystone of modern rock and metal.  More rock singers than I can immediately list have been quoted things like, "Led Zeppelin is the band we all try to sound like."  

I never liked Led Zeppelin when I was in high school, but now I'd have to say they are the equal of any other favorite band of mine.  For their kind of sound, they are king, in my book.  The louder you play their music, the better.  =)  There will never be another band like them.  Why did it take me till late college and early professional school to like Zeppelin?  I don't know.  But I'm about the farthest thing from a stoner you can find (never even been drunk).  I would have laughed at this when I was a teenager, but at 34, I can say that I wasn't musically sophisticated to enjoy Zeppelin when I was 18.

(Ah, Joy Division is depressing.  Listening to "Love Will Tear Us Apart" now.  Need some .38  Special to bring me back.)

Wow man.....

Just because you listen to Led Zepplin or Pink Flyod does not make you a pothead.  These groups to this day are loved by all generations because they brought something to Rock & Roll that no other groups did.

Thats not being a pothead. :mellow:

I said that everyone I have met has been one.  As for not knowing that it was a band and not a person, I never cared enough to find out.  I still don't.

I'll just continue listening to what I have and not knowing what most others are listening to.  I don't mind.

Joy Division are okay, but Ian Curtis was the worst singer ever. He just sounds drunk and depressed.

Adds to the mood I suppose...
