The band currently being played to death at my gaff are The Vines.   


Hahaha around here nobody likes the Vines... they are never on the radio and are seldomly played on Much Music or MTV (our music video shows...if you dont know what they are)

Ok Dowdy, you dont have to get all pissed off... you had the same part in that arguement as I did, so done whine about it... you aked me to post my song, and then you get mad over it... settle down, and "BLAH BLAH BLAH," yourself "ya big baby." grin2.gif  thumbsup.gif

And yes I like other genres too.... But I have to admit that Changes by Tupac is a really good song... Its probably the most influential rap song, and Tupac was the most influential rapper (NOT Eminem)

There is really no reason to taunt other members. Please refrain from starting arguments over something so childish. Also, there is no need to quote a whole post. Just quote the relevant part.

Im not saying that media attention guarantees quality, I am saying that no one wants to hear them... On the radio or TV they play to most popular songs and my statments about the vines is just that... I said:

See how I said nobody LIKES the Vines... Its not that im saying that media attention proves quality, im saying noboday likes them, and thats it. No where did I say that media attention proves quality... media attention is for the demand and popularity of the bands and their songs.

That list wasn't that good.... Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd should be farther up, and the Ramones shouldnt even be on the list.

For the last time, no means yes.

Thanks Aslan...

...I think they should rename it to "The Best Rock Bands Until The Present," and although its not as catchy, its more accurate. Although most bands on the list deserve to be there, I think there are presently; better bands. All the older bands are the best until today (presently) but in the future im sure bands like The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine (just to name my picks) will be "The Best Rock Bands Until The Present," again. The title includes ever (and should never include ever) which is not true cause there will be better bands in the future...

I agree Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin should be at the top... I havent listened to any of the Ramones songs, so I cant say anything about them on the list. I would like to know what band should replace them... Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica?

Ehh-that list is just someone elses opinion. I'll give that the #2 spot on my list of all time stupid lists - right behind the Rolling Stone "100 greatest guitarists" list.

I agree with you all the way on that one, Sweetpumper.
