Re: What I am Listening To Right Now?
Man, you were going so well with that rant, mirroring my own thinking and then you had to let the side down by mentioning Good Charlotte, a hair-product covered anti-climax!
But those berks aside, I understand where you're coming from. Modern music is an industry and like any industry the guys at the top don't want to hear something new or different, they're only interested in the tried and tested formula that makes money. Minimum risk for maximum reward. The result of that being a total lack of originality or creativity.
Mainstream music is almost entirely empty and flat, a song will be played non-stop for months and then never heard of again because it means nothing. Yourself and Parn are fans of Led Zeppelin and you know that twenty years from now you'll still be fans because proper music never gets old.
Most of what I listen to is obscure extreme metal. It's not for everyone, but I love the fact that when I throw on an album I'm listening to something that a band invested a part of themselves in. And that comes across in every note.
