And for the one that evolves the most, I would have to say rap. It starts from crap, then goes to crappy, then goes to crappier, then so on and so forth.

That's pretty narrow-minded, thank you.  thumbsup.gif

There are several bands that have been very influential in their own way. The Beatles and Led Zeppelin have already been mentioned several times. I have not seen Pink Floyd mentioned anywhere.

I should have mentioned them, seeing as they are one of my top favs.  dontgetit.gif What the hell was I thinking?

Have you seen or heard Roth lately? There's a reason he's relagated to doing porn burlesque in Vegas. He can't sing. Sammy is so much better it's embarrassing. If you've seen both live (sober) you'd know what I'm talking about. Either way, it's gonna be the show to see this year! thumbsup.gif !

As a Musician, I can say that most genres of music do evolve constantly. I for one have been very experimental over the years. I mix all sorts of different aspects together and make music that jams, rocks and majorly kicks ass.

I write mainly rock right now. I have about 300-400 songs about love, reality, pain and imagination. All of which, have a different sound and style for each (or so I've been told). I have not made it big in the states yet, but I suspect I will get another one or two of my songs on the radio again.


Sounds cool; post a sound link on this thread, I'd like to listen to a couple of your songs.

you might not think that but I do

Yes you MAY think they are good but I dont. They haven't brought anything new to the music world. I dont think their lyrics are good and their musicians aren't that good either. Therefore they're not at all an influential band.

BUT I know people have different tastes in music so this point is not bashing OR initiating any arguments to you comment.

in defense of rap...


Doesn't every song genre go over the same theme over and over again. But the thing with Rap is that tell a story - blacks tell about their 'ghetto' and whites tell about their trailer trash homes (eminem).

Rock has no meaning eg.

But not the way that we play

now what the hell does that mean?


notice how they rhyme their words too- Just like rap.
So rap is influential because everyone is copying them in a very unnoticable way


I have the same argument with my dad - I like my music and he likes his crappy oldies that make you go to sleep but he likes it so i guess it's personal likes and dislikes.

So what if you rhyme every word? I didn't mention how they did or bash them if they do.

And with that song, your saying "now what the hell does that mean?" Well im sorry its not as obviously stated as rap artists do in their songs, but im 97.57% sure that they used a thing called metaphor. I dont really get that song either but someone does including them. It has a meaning that you just dont get.

Ok well if your defending rap why are you giving examples of just rap songs... That statment is weak and false.

Metallica started out in the 80's, about 1983 with their first album. But I wouldn't say they are today what they used to be.


the difference is that metallica sucked post black album, whereas RHCP haven't released a bad album at all:)

This thread is quickly turning into a "my Fav Band" thread laugh.gif

Though i dont particularly like hip hop that much, but its anyday better than the trashy thing we get for Pop these days. At the moment, Eminem, is the single most influential musical entity..hate it or love it, that is reality. (didnt that just rhyme?)

Some go to the extent of calling him the new age Dylan..whatever the case maybe, hip hop has come to define the 2000's..or atleast till now. Its easier to come up with influential bands if you divide the progression of music through decades..like the 90's was more of grunge..intially it started of with rap, but with the seatle based bands comming into the picture, tons of more grunge and punk bands came into the reckoning.
Again there's a very thin line between a popular band..and an influential band.

P.s...when someone says rap only contains Money,Hoe,Sex and viloence..well, so does rock music. Its a way of life, some make it sound artistic, some outright lame... original.gif

maybe the government does. It probably contains a secret message that only the government can decipher because not even rock fans understand it.


Or maybe they wrote the lyrics when they were high on drugs. Rock is about drugs too, so maybe that song is about 'What you would write if you were high on drugs'
