New Thread Idea -- Best Of Compilations -- Band 1: CrashDiet


Recommended Posts

Here is a new thread idea for everyone. We all love making "best of" compilations of our favorite artists/bands. These compilations will be limited to an 80 minute CDR, so choose your songs wisely. Our first "best of" band is: CRASHDIET. This will be very difficult to fit their best on one 80 minute CDR but that's what makes this fun!

 

So if you had to limit yourself to an 80 minute disc, what would your "Best Of CrashDiet" compilation be??

 

I'll return and add mine after I figure it out.

Good idea for a thread, but imo a surprising choice for the first band as their back catalogue is quite small.

 

Admittedly, I haven't heard the new album, but I would have no chance of filling 80 minutes with their stuff; I'd probably get to about 7 songs.

 

When there's a Scorpions, Ratt or Death (!) version of the thread I might be more able to contribute...

Scorpions or Ratt would be way to hard for me, 2 of my favorites.

i cannot get into this song at all....

Me either!

 

Not rocket science lyrics of course but its the g'n'r guitar riff midway through that gets this a nod from me...and it is a bonus track,maybe even a hidden bonus track if it goes to track 15 instead ;)

If I did a Crashdiet compilation, 'Chemical' would be the first song on it. And probably somewhere in the middle too. Such a great song, easily their best imo.

First list without 'Falling rain.' And even more oddly, it's replaced with 'In the raw,' a very middle-road rocker?

 

Haha, to each their own. Just pointing out that you're a creep. And everyone else thinks you are too. ;)

 

Seriously, though, on a weaker album, 'Falling rain' is one of my overall favourite Crashdiet songs. No compilation of the band's work would be complete without it, imo.

Says he with 'Rebel' in his list which an even more average rocker ;-)

 

Seriously though there are at least 3 demos which beat virtually everything in my list -

 

Tomorrow

Wrecking Machine

Hot All Through The Night

 

If you haven't heard these check them out on You Tube - criminal that these haven't been released!!

'Tomorrow' is a great tune, but clearly the launching pad for 'It's a miracle.'

 

Not sure I've heard 'Wrecking machine' before. Sounds pretty sweet. What sessions is that from?

 

And not sure I've heard 'Hot All Through The Night' - that's a great one for sure.

 

Definitely still think 'Rebel' is one of their best songs of all. Killer riff, just the kind of song I love.

You sir are correct! One of the greatest songs of the last 20 years.

Opinions; incredible how they can differ so much when general tastes are quite similar.

 

For me, 'Chemical' is by far Crashdiet's best song. Head and shoulders above every other tune they've done. th_shrug-1.gif

Ha ha Chemical is great (of course) but it would be towards the bottom of my top 10. It's A Miracle is untouchable.

    • God they must be desperate. Notice they didn't say write a new song, prob cos all their latest songs have been rubbish. I'd be interested to hear one though to see if they can still write something mildly amusing 🤔  
    • Hold on soldier, I'm hoping that wasn't aimed at me. I don't think I was putting anyone down, and as far as I know, I'm not an atheist either. I don't actually know. I can't stand all this label rubbish and don't have a label for my thoughts on this stuff. Yes, I believe you are born, you live and you die and that's the end of it. But they're just my thoughts.  Anyway, why are we talking about Christmas now anyway? Still almost 30 days to go... 
    • Agree, love that Irish girl type look. Tans are overrated!
    • Only humans were created in the image of God, and most consider that to mean possession of an eternal soul. However, the animals were put on the earth for humans to have dominion and use plus care for them. As for Heaven, we can't know what it will be like, but in my mind it would not be heaven if there were not dogs for me to hang out with, so I expect that yes there will be animals, otherwise how is it heaven for an animal lover? This view of heaven being in the clouds, wearing robes and playing harps is mostly an atheist's invention to mock what they can't comprehend. To try and explain heaven to an atheist is like trying to describe the sky to someone who has had their face buried in mud their entire lives. It's a rather fruitless and usually thankless task. I know atheists have their pile of dirt and nothingness to look forward to (lol). Yes, I am aware that atheists have invented this concept of "ascention" through genetic evolution or artificial immortality as a replacement of heaven in your religion, but I'm not sure how atheists rationalise an incorporeal existence in their concept of pointless nothingness. It doesn't bother me either what you atheists believe, I just wish you weren't so arrogant about your nihilistic mindset and cease with the put downs of those who don't share your belief set. And merry Christmas my pagan friends! I genuinely mean that.
    • Haha. Been decades since I had any discussions like this on the forum and I definitely do not want to revisit, but as my mind is always ticking over I was actually thinking about stuff the other day. So if we (humans) get a fancy afterlife kickin' it with Jesus and God n' stuff, do animals? When an ant dies, does the ant experience Heaven? Does a dog, or a cat? An elephant? Do all beings experience Heaven (or hell too, I guess, if they didn't follow the gospel?). Or do only humans experience Heaven, and if so, why do animals have a pointless existence but there simply must be something more to a human's life other than being born, living and dying?  Genuinely curious, compadre. I used to have many discussions with Mark (metalmaniac777) back in the day and we're still best buds and we even made love a few times. I'm sure he doesn't mind me disclosing that. So seriously not having a dig, but I live to learn. 
    • lol. Really interested to know if they get any takers. Solid wad of cash, $7500. Mildly interesting they still use a photo of the band with Lexxi in it, assuming they haven't replaced him yet? 
    • Yeah, I got a bit of a Degreed vibe from it too. Quality stuff. 
    • My wife had the news on this afternoon and I saw this mind numbing horseshit panic-splashed across the headlines. I thought wow, this sounds alarming. But I heard B.1.1.530 is going to hit even harder. To be honest, though, they called it something else on Aussie news, though - Cock Makers variant, or something like that. I seriously can't remember, but they actually had a name for it rather than this morse code version of it.  Anyway, 95% vaccinated in NSW and we still have to walk around like moron beatshit brains with our face masks on - mandatory - in all indoor settings. Mask rules weren't even this harsh for the majority of the pre-vaccine pandemic. Fuck me I love this cuntry. 
    • Yes, very nice, but unfortunately a distinct lack of "Titties" on show! FFS! This isn't the "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread!
    • Not for me, but have at it bud.
