I remember when I first came here. Jubeh dished on the fact that I love Linkin Park.
Then he told me he was just messing around, listen to what you like, it's no issue.

Don't know why he hasn't told you the same thing, but you know, I've been here a while, watched him grow up. He's getting a bit advanced in the age sector, give him a break. Retirement's soon.

I'm not sure if you remember, but I made a thread about Linkin Park on the old forum. It was one of my first threads actually. It was basically the first experience I had with the argumentative side of the community (I thought it was scary--until I ventured into my first Kodos-affiliated thread).

And tbh this was both a reply to a comment jubeh made in the video game forum (which rly was nbd) and I joke thread since I hadn't made one in a while. I could tell the quality of chatterbox threads had been declining without me there to unleash my immaculate humor upon the poor creativeless masses, so I took inspiration from that comment and made this thread.

Why Nickelback sucks? Easy!

It's one of the bands who have made less innovation of all, this goes to the points that their whole music is the repetition of the same compositions because it sells. So basically is a band that makes music to sell, not to inspire or innovate (you can listen how they use similar tempos, beat's and others). Even more, there is people who claim that some songs are ripoff of other songs (I haven't gave that much attention so I don't have this experience).

Why Linking Park sucks? Easy!!

Basically Linking Park has made some copy paste with their songs, the lyrics are quiet emo (wannabehardcore) and the composition of the instruments some time is unnoriginal (doing same riffs) and others doesn't work with each other (don't add in a organic way).

Both Nickelback and Linking Park are market band's which mean, those are sell to a segment of population with the same taste, so they don't need innovation, just keep doing the same thing over and over again. Also I hate their lyrics (Nickelback use the same subjects the whole time and Linking Park its sooooo emo).

Also I hate slipknot, I think that people who listen this kind of Nu-Metal are kids who want loud music, without knowing there are way more awesome "loud" band's out there. Thanks MTV.

Bacon_Barbarian
09-12-2011, 10:16 PM
Linkin Park albums do NOT sound a like. There is a clear difference in Hybrid Theory, Minutes to Midnight, and 1000 Suns. Nor are they emo. Never has there been a message to kill yourself in a LP song. (Well ... ... Shadow of the Day maybe.) As for Nickelback ... They're OK. I like two of their song. And even if LP/Nickelback was all the same, that doesn't make them bad. All the Rolling Stone albums sound the same, does that make them a bad band? People are entitled to opinions, and OMG!NOWAI!! musical taste is subjective. (Waits around for GunZ to reinforce his argument like he did on the middle MT.)

And don't blame MTV for anything, they haven't aired a music video since the late 90's.

For my Linking Park is the same as always has been (I have live enough to have listened them in all the periods of the band's life) and for both linking park and nickleback they are just a marketing band, they sell what they now it sells. There is no risk,

I actually don't like the Rolling Stone, I like some of their songs, but as a band (TODAY!) are not as good.
I prefer The Residents, Primus, Mike Patton, etc.

Also yeah, yeah, yeah it's subjective, but there are objectives parameters, specially in music, which is pure math. And this bands do that, they know the mathematical tempos and beat that work, and they keep using them, they are marketing bands.

Would that not be considered skilled, talented, or a host of other adjective which are only partially related to good? I mean, saying they're objectively bad bands is practically a personal insult. Unoriginal, low-talent, fine. But BAD? You're telling me my ears suck essentially...

Interesting, you are bringing up the same subject I'm debating with Cypress over in Video Games. I think tomorrow I'll make a thread addressing the concept of "good" and "bad" in media, and we can all have it out.

Well Bad has for extention unoriginal, low-talent and cheap... so I use bad because of the extention.

You know, when I first start learning to play guitar I start to appreciate other bands and throw away others, not because I was listening what was bad in the band's or good in them, but because I start listening every instrument and I start realizing how the whole composition work's. Reason why I fell in love with the Math Core genre and the Noise music. I'm not saying you have bad ears, but maybe you need to listen more careful.

I knew you weren't really insulting me. Thing is I'm not sure I want to listen more closely if all it will do is increase my taste/expectations. If I was discontent with my music tastes maybe...

As far as bad, "unoriginal, low-talent and cheap" may mean bad for you but not for others. It's gonna be part of the debate I make tmrw. Don't get ahead of me!

Then if someone says Nickelback/Linking Park is bad, you will have to suck it. Or keep doing meta discussions about good vs bad, which are going to bore everyone to death, and mostly people are going to tell you "there are objective parameters of what I'm saying and you are deflecting the discussion".

Young kids. The fanbase grow up and left it, so they need new kids, and the new generations are not going to eat the same, so they change it to win a new fanbase (everything they do is made for marketing).

Just pointing out that there is pretty much no evidence that people thought the earth was flat. People in the middle ages thought of the earth as round, and even as far back as ancient greece people thought the earth was spheric. Roger Bacon even wrote about the curvature of the earth in the 13th century. Blame is often put on the American writer Washington Irving for putting forth this "rumour".

Not to take away from your point, I'm just saying, that's all.

Also if I had that Pro Yakyuu game I would just make my pitcher throw breaking balls all the time.

jubeh
09-13-2011, 01:53 PM
Idk I think it would be easier to hit breaking balls in that game because if you see it break you can adjust really fast, where in most baseball games whether your guy hits it or not is based on timing and computer calculations and stuff.

Hayashida
09-13-2011, 01:57 PM
Yeah but you see the player would be like okay he's thrown five breaking balls in a row there's no way he's gonna throw a sixth.
then I throw a sixth breaking ball and he's caught staring at it and then for good measure I throw in a fast ball for a second strike and so he thinks okay now he's changing it up, he's probably gonna throw it up and away now so I'll just hang back so he can walk me and then I will throw another breaking ball and strike him out.

edit: I was reading up on Bass and there's this funny story about how they used to spell his name バス (Basu) but a bus company wanted the team to spell his name バース (Bāsu) because bus in Japanese is spelled バス and they were afraid it would give negative connotations if newspapers were to write "Basu unstoppable!" or "Basu explodes" if he played well and "Basu crash" if he hit a slump.

Anyways i kinda like almost everything, if im in the right mood. I listen everything from classisc's and opera's ( Karmina Burana being the favorite) Ramstain and Max the hormone. So i like few Nickle-backs songs but i don't listen to them as much as Disney songs(they RULE btw)

Not gonna lie, Slipknot is the best I've heard of any genre with the word "core" at the end. That's not necessarily good, but not nearly as noisy and dissonant as "-core" bands get. Have you guys heard "grindcore"? Stuff is horrible. But then again, I wouldn't know what //real// grindcore is because every time I try to find a video of it on Youtube, half the comments are defensive grindcore fanboys going "this isn't real grindcore".

Dude I love grindcore, mathcore, porncore, etc. But again, there are plenty of bands that sucks, this is because there is a general idea that grindcore must by noisy, which is a lie, because even in noise there must be a clarity and a distinction between elements, this is how noise music is labeled between good or bad.

CypressDahlia
09-15-2011, 04:06 PM
The thing is I haven't heard any "core" music that //isn't// noisy. I just figured it was a feature of the genre because it's so specific already (though not specific enough for me to differentiate between the different ones except rapcore, since it has...well elements of rap). I'm looking for that grindcore that people actually say is enjoyable or at least "real", so I can have a proper opinion of it.

Also, yeah. Way too many subgenres, srsly. There is no audible difference between what I've heard of death metal and grind. I think people create these labels to seem more exclusive.

I don't know what you mean with noisy. But Noise music its supposed to be "noise" with composition, which mean that the noise you heard it has a pattern and a intention in it, making bad noise music the opposite (noise without pattern).

Melt Banana does it right, mixing noise with punk, you have noise music but with instruments behind making the composition, of course a lot of people will just heard the noise, there are also people who will appreciate it. In the end in that part is just a matter of taste. The same goes with grindcore, if its done wrong you are just going to heard noise, but made it right, you can listen the pattern and the intention.

Porncore is grindcore but with sexual subject basically and Mathcore born from Mathrock (mathmetal born from it to) but its way more complex in rhythm (for me taste is one of the most mathematically enjoyable kind of music because of the pattern they use in the rhythms and sections).

It has scream.

Grindcore? Mathcore? Those are for guys with long greasy hair who never leave the house. Be suave: listen to cyberpunk.

How is it that song is weird enough to be weird but not weird enough to be avant-garde.

Why call it cyberpunk when it's just drum n' bass?

because of the obvious industrial influence?

That's make it cyberpunk?

I don't know I agree that there are a lot of genres that shouldn't exist.

Influences make an entirely new genre now? So if I take 95% drum n' bass and throw a banjo in it, it's cyberbilly?

This is classic D&B from the SS2 soundtrack. Tell me how different that is from the song you posted that it justifies creating an entirely new genre.

Those are the reasons why there are so many stupid genres.

If I'm japanese and play rock I'm making jrock? If I play rock on japan I'm making jrock? there are a lot of genres that are unnecessary (not just the j-something but also many others) and as I see it a genre can only be a genre by itself only if the estructural composition of the music let it. By example Punk is a different genre from Rock not just because of the lyric, but also because of the rhythms, beats and riffs.

I wonder who comes up with the genres. Either pretentious artists who want to seem "new" or does some neckbeard sit at home thinking of cool things to call slightly altered music? It's like the question of how we discovered herbal medicine? Did someone roam around the forest eating random leaves and recording the results? Someone has to be out there coming up with these subgenres!
