Ive also been listening again to the weird youtube mashups iíve got saved in a playlist and Death Grips vocals makes any song better, its crazy how well Stefanís voice goes with literally anything: doom music, animal crossing, mac demarco, fucking one direction even.

I also found a channel with hour long videos of early and live Radiohead track sorted by albums, I hope they release acoustic versions of their songs sometimes in the futureÖ

Lastly, anyone here a fan of Eels? I rarely see anyone discuss his music online and its a shame, his music was basically my therapy for a while

Arctic monkeys slaps so hard. I love their earlier stuff. Mardy bum, brianstorm, when the sun goes down, fluorescent adolescent, balaclava, riot van, piledriver waltz, do me a favour, pretty much their first four albums are all total bangers. I didn't really like their last album but i should revisit because i felt that way with king of limbs came out from Radiohead and listening now i think that album is great
[close]

I had a feeling you were a fellow man of culture Dale.

Do Me A Favor and When The Sun Goes Down would easily make Top 5 Arctic Monkeys tracks.

New album is good, definitely not my favorite but some really good tracks that feel like a more mature, comprehensive approach to the style of the AM record. Tracks like The Ultracheese and One Point Perspective are highlights to me, Alex Turnerís lyrics are as witty as ever on them.

Curious on your thoughts as AM as an album though, I actually prefer it over Suck It And See but it pales in comparison to the greatness of the first three.

big difference between the two is that suck it and see is an objectively bad album. AM is one of those records you can absolutely hate, but you still know the songwriting is solid. suck it and see they just totally lost the plot somehow. everything that comes before is stellar, i guess they just needed a total dud to be able to transition

This is tight^ Big shouts to all the lgbtqia+ homies. But I love me some violent queercore. Also gayrilla biscuits is best spit in the face to homophobic hardcore kids that could ever be made. Best covers in hardcore.

why wouldn't you like the Go-Gos? they're great.

somebody mentioned Eels up there a bit - i was into it for a moment when i was 19 - he has covered Prince occasionally in an interesting manner.

wow i never knew he had covered prince this is heavy. Eels has so many bangers with simple but hard hitting lyrics. This song is something else too https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HZNvp6WD6kY#menu

the misfits have no good releases post-static age

hybrid moments is one of the best punk songs ever written but the rest of their disocraphy is theatrical goofy nonsense, danzing, samhaim and all that stuff included

this may also be me being an ignorant youth and saying fuck your old head music, maybe itll grow on me

pretty much agree with all of this, especially on how incredible "Hybrid Moments" is...

...although, this version of She might actually edge Hybrid Moments out of that position for me...maybe...this version is as heavy as it gets and just radiates desperation...even more so edited to actual footage of Patty Hearst robbing that bank

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lPetHDI7m8

i know this conversation occurred elsewhere in here, but would have loved more from this original incarnation of the Misfits--no guitar, just bass, drums, and organ/keyboard...

I don't think many would argue with you here. That's the misfits M.O. is theatrical goofy nonsense and I think that is what makes them so prolific. There's a great podcast called 'No Dogs In Space' made by one of the dudes from 'Last podcast on the left' and his wife where they go in very deep detail about the history of bands. They have a great 2 or 3 part epi on the misfits which is super interesting whether you love em or not. But it does touch on that Danzig was super influenced by huge rockstars as a kid(brain is foggy but I remember elvis being one of them) so him and Jerry treated the misfits like a business. I think they just naturally fell into the punk scene because they were 'weird' but they were trying to cash in during their whole existence(original line up with danzig) to no avail

podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-misfits-pt-i/id1495604041?i=1000475333274

as for Samhain - never got into em much but I do like this song which sounds like an extension of og misfits
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPSv9Pe9sDc

and as cheesy as danzig gets I have a place in my heart for the first album and how the gods kill

I back this, Yeah I joined with otherís like fuck this shit initially but itís grown on me.

  What finally cemented the nail in the coffin was Michael Graves proud boy salute, I try to not let someoneís political stance affect their artistry, however racistís gets no sympathy from me.

All Danzig's Misfits work is perfect.

DANZIG II: Lucifuge is an all time classic album (to me).

perhaps it's because of my untrained ears, but it all just seems to sound like the same wall of shouting and ceaseless instrument bashing.
