not really an unpopular opinion - but just chiming in on bauhaus doing great covers - their version of telegram sam is incredible and i wouldn't have ever really expected anyone to do t-rex better than t-rex. repeating an unpopular opinion i've already made in here - honestly david bowie is kind of boring {he's not bad - but he falls flat for me} and it's not hard to imagine people doing his songs better than he did.
[close]
bowieís music always feels like heís trying to be someone else. letís dance is the only thing that feels uniquely his, and it bangs, but yeah every other bowie moment feels like someone else could do it better bc someone did it better before him and he just made it weird or androgynous or whatever

yeah he's certainly not the god of uniquity to me.

Actually theyíre so overrated that the backlash kinda makes them underrated. Like 50 cent or Diplo.

Like a prayer is off the hook regardless of rack.

The little bit of guitar at the start before the closing door sound is Prince, the 12 inch version has a Prince solo in it too. Other promo versions and dub mixes feature sneaky little uncredited Prince samples too. Even with out Prince, it's still great. Did it get used in an RDS video somewhere along the line?

Oh, and here's one that no one in Australia seems to like to hear; Dire Straits are terrible, Mark Knopfler is boring and Sultans of Swing is just a top ten shit song. Also, fuck the Eagles, and while I'm thinking about things Australians don't like to hear you say {not sure if the rest of the world even knows this ghastly song} but I would love to never hear Eagle Rock by Daddy Cool again - but I don't like my chances. Sorry if that bums you out Matty C.

the story about steely dan making him record a guitar solo for like 10 straight hours largely because they were jealous of him is so fucking funny that it makes him, as a public figure, worth it

Rancid has some awesome songs. Their lyrics and musicianship are excellent. Rancid 2000 is probably their best album. "Let Me go" "Black Derby Jacket" "Lock, Step, & Gone" "Quite Alright" "Brad Logan" "1998" "Bloodclot" "Black and Blue" excellent songs.

Grimple is worth a listen.

The Clash is great as well. "Complete Control" "Janie Jones" "Straight to Hell" "Lost in the Supermarket" "Safe European Home" "Clampdown" all great.

I like the Sex Pistols because they were poor and barely knew how to play when they started. Johnny Rotten is a character with some great quotes. "Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" He was hilarious in Sorry.

Kanye's "Ghost Town parts 1 and 2" is a good song. It's about Kanye's mental health struggles. that being said, much of his music does nothing for me. mumble rap sucks. I'm going to listen to Bone Thugs, Andre Nickatina, or MF Doom (RIP) instead.

Anyone like Dropkick Murphys, Bouncing Souls?

Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, DRI all boring.

as far as 70's and 80's post/punk goes, Rudimentary Peni, The Adverts, Husker Du, Blitz, Wire, Subhumans, Buzzcocks, Joy Division, The Cure, Gang of Four all fire.

anyone like Burzum? Sleep? Mayhem (those dudes were fucked)?

guilty pleasure Chumbawamba Tubthumper album.

Also like Neutral Milk Hotel, Fleet Foxes (father john misty is lame af)

Velvet Underground all albums, excellent.

but this is just like my opinion man.

I'm Australian, and have not noticed this at all. The Eagles are fucken shit.
Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

Rancid 2000 is good and i can still play most of the album, but Rancid 1993 and AOCTW are what I like. Life Won't Wait in some ways may be the best.

The Clash is phenomenal. Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros killed it as did BAD

Dropkick Murphys were a great Boston band with Mike McClogan on vox. Down hill fast after he left as far as I was concerned. Wtf was up with that military album on gangs all here?

I would agree that D.R.I are boring - i would agree that suicidal and slayer both became very, very, very boring, but How Will I Laugh Tomorrow is a top ten all-time album for me - Suicidal in perfect form. Seasons In The Abyss would also be a top ten all-time album for me.

saw the stones in like $2,500 seats (i worked the show and got in for free) and will say that literally no show on earth is worth more than 150 (unless money means nothing to you). that show fully drove that point home. it was literally once in a lifetime stuff for me and i wouldnít have spent 40 bucks for it

I still bump Rancid's and out come the wolves! and Operation Ivy for that matter!

also Tim Armstrong's first solo record has some hits as well

Country music, at least artistically, isn't nearly as conservative as people think it is.  I mean the two biggest living icons in Country are extremely left.  Also, props to whomever posted Colter Wall, I really dig that guys music.

I definitely think thrash metal D.R.I. are boring... however you'd be hard-pressed to find something as chaotic and rabid as the Dirty Rotten E.P.  One of the best hardcore EP's ever.  Dealing with It isn't bad... after that though, snoozefest. 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k88ADl46eok

I dig Rancid.. they are definitely the best of all the late 90's Epitaph bands (not a high bar to clear).  They have great influences and definitely write some great songs.  Sometimes corny, and sometimes waaaay to Clash-rip-offy, but man they can write some street punk anthems (this is from their newest album and it's great):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__WMJusant4

I don't really understand why people hate U2 to such an intense degree... I'm not really fan and don't own any of their albums, but they can write some hits and there's way, WAY worse stuff out there that gets marketed as the 'greatest rock band ever!'.  I guess it could be the over-saturation?  I really don't know, but they aren't as horrible as people claim.

Agreed about the Sleaford Mods.
