Controversial Hard Rock Opinions


Recommended Posts

just in respect of some comments above:

Queen : the studio albums are all overrated. Collectively the greatest hits is amazing. Live they were amazing with Freddie.

Rush : great musicians, mainly shit songs. 

Bon Jovi : great up to These Days, shit ever since.

Beatles : respect their place in history but don't really like any of their songs. Can't stand Paul McCartney

U2 : definitely not overrated imo but there are quite a few fillers across their albums but if you took their best 15 songs live at a gig in a small venue like Hammy Odeon it would be awesome imo. 

Oasis : are overrated and both of them are arrogant c*nts but I do like several songs off the first 2 albums 

GnR : You Could be Mine would be in my top 5 GnR songs.

The order of importance for group members (assuming all write songs) of any hard rock band are:

1. Singer

2. Drummer

3. Guitarist 

4. Bass

*Daylight*

5. Keyboard

Wow. You lot are playing it very safe.

Warrant made some good music post Jani? Where's the controversy in that? And then, or course, everyone is immediately sidetracked when you so much as mention Van Halen, arguing over which era was better. 

Here's an actual controversial statement: Harem Scarem's Voice of Reason is better than their debut.

IMO,Jani Lane was overrated......does that piss anyone off?

Judas Priest's Turbo album is one of their best albums despite their "fans" hating it, and it features some great, melodic songs and deserves to be in any discussion around great hard rock albums of the 80s.

'Reckless'....the last tune on  'Turbo' was awesome.

 

I've heard JP nixed it being in the movie 'Top Gun'....given the success of that film along w/ the popularity of that soundtrack,they probably would have made a mint putting it on there.

I tend to think Jani Lane was underrated and he felt like he never got the respect of other songwriters of the genre.

Completely agree. 99% of people who know of him just saw him as the guy who wrote 'Cherry Pie.' It's only the very vast minority that chose to dig deeper and find out what a talent he actually was. I'll be completely honest and say his was a star that burned bright and briefly, and he never emulated what he achieved with the 'Dog eat dog' album, but that is pure brilliance. Don't get me wrong, I like 'Ultraphobic' and to be honest, most of what he did but the bar was set incredibly high.

but you could say that about virtually every band in our beloved genre.

Does that mean they are all underrated

To a certain extent, with regards to popular culture, I reckon yes.

Nope, 

ACDC, Motley Crue, Aerosmith, Kiss, Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, GNR, etc - were hardly very inspirational in the majority of their lyrical content.

Then you have others like Jani, who have stories and thoughtful and sometimes inspirational lyrics.

Iron Maiden, Butch Walker, Little Caesar, Great White, Sixx AM, Five Finger Death Punch, etc

Most bands have a few songs that have these traits, eg: Poison - Something To Believe In, Slaughter - Times They Change, etc but for the most part were just fun rock bands like the rest.

So virtually every band in our beloved genre was known almost worldwide for a cheesy hit single with the song writing prowess of a gherkin, and all of these same bands also recorded what many class as a masterpiece, in the vein of 'Dog Eat Dog?'

No one has ever heard of 99% of the bands in our beloved genre and sure as balls 99% of people have not over-rated them either.

ha ha, many as in the 3000 melodic mafia crew who are only only ones which have heard it.

Whether that album is a masterpiece is a personal opinion but my wife once heard April 2031 and asked why I was listening to a pile of bollocks ;)

alas I fear this would be the opinion of the mainstream as well so why I originally replied saying I agreed that he was a tiny bit overrated by our select crowd.

I like Dog Eat Dog a lot but I prefer overall Cherry Pie , except the title track of course ;)

Ozzy Osbourne's first two solo albums were still better than the two Dio-helmed Black Sabbath albums.

TOTALLY agree! Robert Mason led albums are fantastic, and he is a great front man in concert.

Without Derek St. Holmes, Ted Nugent would be an obscure hunter somewhere in the world.

My wife has never heard a single song I have ever listened to and not thought it was absolute rubbish. 0.

    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
    • Thats not even close to what I said.
    • I'm not trying to convince you of anything, you made statements concerning Atheism, that were incorrect, I figure if your going to talk about something you might as well be accurate in what your talking about, so thats all im trying to convince you of, never did I once talk down to you, or tell you that what you thought was stupid, I simply told you what Atheism is really, I gave MY opinion on it, then I basically said believe whatever you want, I wasnt being a dick, nor am I upset or anything, being an Atheist im pretty use to it, that's all, theres no reason to get huffy about it either, nobody can prove anything, it's all personal taste, nothing more.
