While some of the records as a whole arenít as consistent, I think a lot of the Ramonesí best material came mid to late in their career. Too Tough To Die is probably the record I visit most often.


Technical Ecstasy by Black Sabbath is fine.


I get that itís not for everyone, but I never understood why ska is the butt of all musical jokes. Itís always been a very interesting and progressive genre. Most of the people who hate on it are really just thinking about Reel Big Fish or something.



I think saying an artist is overrated just because you personally donít like them is inherently dumb.

Iíve had this conversation with a lot of people and almost every time I can think of at least a couple bands or albums that theyíll say they like.

you touch on a lot in this post, but for now, i'll go even further out on this particular limb, and admit that this is my favorite Ramone's song

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

man, ska to me is actually a pretty complex designation, but i am just about 50, so the whole Two-Tone era is probably the most defining era to me...love all of the performances from the film Dance Craze, like these

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzwPO9NtF4w

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8qh63nu1OQ

edit: i always figure people got critical of ska, because of what happened to it in the 1990s (i think)...like, aren't bands like No Doubt supposed to be doing some kind of ska shtick?

I believe Iíve mentioned this beforehand but most bandís best albums are their first three.

Not to say that thereís exceptions to this opinion as I can say without a doubt AJJ, Nofx, Bad Religion, and few others I cannot remember definitely get better with age.

I love NOFX but their first two records are practically unlistenable to me, haha. I think Ribbed is pretty good though.

No doubt  Liberal Animation & S&M airline's were terrible albums I think Ribbed was rad too but it wasn't their definitive sound but close just a lineup change they made it awesome.

When El Hefe joined in White trash two herbs and a bean that's what I think about when someone says NOFX. 

Now as far as their album that is their smartest album was The Decline and War on Errorism were the pinnacle of not being that too jokey goofy Guttermouth type of band.

so much good shit in this thread but most notable is how ska gets a bad rap and the decline being peak fat mike lyricism



i think tiger army is awesome although I do get the psychobilly disdain - feel like psychobilly as a genre also gets the stink that 90ís ska gets

- Phil Collins has written some top-tier pop songs.
- Artists/projects like Oneohtrix Point Never and Dean Blunt are the future of popular music.
- Lydia Lunch is a smug, insufferable asshole whose ego overshadows her artistic input/output.
- Easy listening Stereolab is better than krautrock Stereolab.

man, Streetlight are one of the tightest live bands I've ever seen. Even some of my friends who otherwise don't like any variant of ska like Streetlight. It's almost undeniable.

I like rockabilly too, it's too bad it gets labeled kooky for the wrong characters whom dress like dipshits especially the extreme pompadours and whatnot.

I'm going to disagree with Tiger Army though, I will offer a few bands instead Link Wray,  Robert Gordon, The Cramp's as you most certainly know,  Donny Martindale, Cruisers.

punk in drublic though! Fat Mike said Propagandhi's HTCE kicked everyone's arse and made them get better at writing good riffs. I thought for the longest time that punk in drublic came out before HTCE but it was the other way around.

Speaking of propagandhi: they are my favorite band in the world (and have been since 95-ish) but I don't really rank a lot of the songs on today empires (even though I love Todd and ISPY)

I also don't think slayer is that great and yet I love thrash...

Punk in Drublic was a damn fine album I was merely saying when you think of NOFX itís El Hefe involvement that really congealed their lineup.

Oh god Propagandhi my exbest friend was such a huge advocate for that band.  I did listen to them for a long time, especially that HTCE and Less Talk More Rock was definitely in the queue for me.

Funny story about that HTCE so Iíve been working 3 dayís straight and Iíve got the rest of the week off my flatmates decided to have a day drinking party. Which I didnít put up much of a fight as I was tired

  I needed sleep and wasnít feeling it at all, so Iím finally getting that good sleep where youíre feeling better than that stupid cheap trick song comes on now mind you weíve got a shitload of recordís to listen to from any genre and sub genres butttt instead of listening to a multitude of music itís that one album, finally in a huff of anger and frustration I walk in to the living room and grab the record and frisbee that shit outside like splash in to the man made pond, wtf is wrong with you guyís?! Of all the bands THIS ONE ALBUM?! Now none of us can listen to it!

I went back to sleep and they continued to party which was fine but holy shit! Try some variety and for the love of god donít burn a record for otherís by playing that same fucking side over and over and over for fucks sake.

Hmmmm youíre not fan of Slayer eh? Theyíre a good example of what I was saying beforehand their first 3 albums were rad I believe it was South of Heaven that wasnít thrash Show no mercy, Hell Awaits, Reign in Blood were respectable albums. Anything afterwards was mehhh.

White Trash and Punk in Drublic are peak NoFX in my book. That does not mean they did not have good stuff before or after.

Regarding the "3 first album = best" theory, there are many good examples for this, Cypress Hill comes to mind immediately.

i can't stand a single song from NOFX, Propagandhi, or Bad Religion--not one...perhaps a generational thing?

Other than the first album (which is foundational)--and a song or two on Join the Army--i don't know why people even think about Suicidal Tendencies

You are like my friendsí older brothers who had DRI posters on their wall and I thoughtówhy does everyone like a band That MTV doesnít even play.

I never liked Metallica, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Anthrax or Megadeath. Never spoke to me. I was definitely an odd ball.

Always preferred early punk for the rawness. To this day I donít think I listen to any punk recorded post 1983.

Iím basically only interested in the creation of a music style. After the style is created and begins to be refined I feel it is time to move on.

Sex Pistols are way overrated.

Black metal is shit, 90% of the songs consist of the same power chord progression and drums. There are some good bands but the vast majority is just bad.

Suicidal Tendencies were always garbage never liked them always reminded me of DRI meatheads in high school that liked punk shows for trying to go to shows just to pick fights. Fuck that shit and that mentality.

Weezer's Green album is pretty good. Fleetwood Mac is awful. Elliott Smith's stuff after XO is not quite as good as it and the stuff before it (I don't know if this is controversial but most skate videos use songs from his post-XO material). I think "rock 'n' roll" describes a very specific style of music that is basically 12-bar blues played faster; anything that doesn't fit that criterion, such as most Beatles' songs, is "rock," a different genre of music. The 90s really were the golden age of hip-hop (maybe also not that controversial but could be seen as an old-fashioned take).

Yeah, this and Bad Religionís Suffer made NOFX a much better band. Ribbed is basically BR worship lol.





Also, I think Andrew WKís second album is his best one.

You have to admit for what they're trying to do is admirable......  They got the right fit but I mean really is it that good NO not really it's about average for a 60's inspired doowop band.
