    Although I love the Doors, I know what you're talking about. I should like the Violent Femmes. But hate them for some reason. I think they were just too College Radio for me. (College radio -- wiki it, kids).

    It's why it's so much fun. You can't really lose an argument on music- you put it out there why you like it and because it's subjective, it can't lose.

    I'll tell you Jimmy Page is the best guitarist of all time. Someone else may say Hendrix. Sammy Hagar in Van Halen didn't bother me. I may only like half of Bob Dylan's stuff but I think that qualifies him as a top 5 artist. For being a boy band, Hanson wasn't half bad. I love Nirvana, I think they benefit from Cobain's death. Nobody ever got to see the decline, which is a big deal. I have Radiohead*,Pavement and Dinosaur Jr. songs on my ipod, I like them, and I think their fans are insufferable.

    And none of what I just said can be defeated with any type of logic that I have to bow to.

    These threads are great because it shows the power that music holds over us. I just got back from an elementary school talent show where the entire school was singing along with the performances. I had goosebumps seeing a little girl singing Joan Jett (honestly, is there anyone cooler?)....another girl sang "Let it Go." Rihanna, that "Happy" song....and we're all in this little auditorium singing along.

    And here we are in this tread debating and sharing our tastes. It brings us together. It's my "baseball" anymore. I have it on at my desk, my workouts, the car....it's everywhere and I love it. And I love to see this board talk about it, too.

    Great thread.

    *For you Walking Dead fans, Norman Reedus is in the "Fake Plastic Trees" video. That is cool.
    I saw Joan Jett open for the Police in 1981

    I saw L7 blow the doors off the arena and then saw Nirvana slog through their last album after... L7 was amazing

    Going back a few posts to the "indy" question...Indie can mean anything these days. To me, indie means rock, pop, and folk bands that are usually on a smaller label and/or have the freedom to experiment beyond the radio-ready demands of mainstream artists.

    However, if you ask Spotify or most magazines these days, "indie" means electronic gimmicky pop music that is as derivative and homogenized as the mainstream pop acts or (often electronic) folk-y music like Bastille and Mumford and Sons. Basically, it's all about electronic dance-y music right now, even when it comes to folk and rock music.

    L7 were like a LOOGY...limited repertoire but in the right venue, they're really,really good at what they do throw at you.

    I've been reading up lately on Led Zeppelin's dubious history with plagiarism and it is discouraging. There are some interesting compilations on YouTube with selections of Zeppelins music and the songs they came from. Some are questionable (coming from someone who isn't a music expert), but some are almost one for one copies. Apparently the biggest problem is that Zeppelin didn't credit anyone and pay royalties for using their words/music (like the Stones did). It is really disappointing as someone who has long liked Zeppelin.

    Where have you been my man?

    I'm listening to the Afghan Whigs record and it's not the least bit disappointing, IMO. I'm quite a Dulli fan boy though, I admit.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I think it's great. Love me some whigs ever since I saw them at the Union in Athens for $3 in 1989.

    I've been listening to the new Ray Lamontaigne, but I feel guilty about it. It's like listening to the stuff I grew up with in the seventies, but pretending I'm hip.

    Having said that, I'm really enjoying it.
