Exactly. I would agree that the only way that a truly original piece of music might be born in the world today would be through the mindless maniacal monotony and loneliness of the sailor.

I pretty much agree with you in the fact that most formations of musical notes that are pleasing to the ear have been in one form or another produced and copied over the millennia.

Hell, it's been said that every cool riff ever has already been done by Black Sabbath, everyone else just copies one and rearranges a note or two. As a metal guitarist, I find it hard to refute that statement.

So what's left then?
(if you say dubstep, I'll be forced to track you down and kill you)

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Yeah, I've read that before, and also concur. Iommi was the ironsmith of riffs.

Dubstep???!! No chance.

I have no idea what's next; I think the guitar/ bass/ drums/vocalist lineup has gone as far as it can go, though.

Hey now. When I was in High School I not only listened to the music of the day, but that of preceeding decades, too. Not just one genre, but many, as well.

Granted, I may be biased by this song's presence in the movie, Predator, but you've got to admit it's, at least, a little catchy.

Granted, I may be biased by this songs presence in the movie, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, but it is just a little cool, right?
1967




This is just EPIC Drinking Beverage
1979




This one kicks metric butt-tons of corrupt religion's ass!
1986




Evil_monster
1996




Now, I graduated in '98, & apparently stopped paying attention. So if anyone could please provide some musical pieces that 1) either kick metric butt-tons of ass, or are epically emotionally moving, 2) that were produced after 2000 by bands that hadn't existed prior to that year, and 3) were produced by bands that were widely known during their time even to people who were not fans of their specific genre,...

RE: What killed Rock-n-Roll?
I doubt anyone here can define rock 'n roll, so declaring its death, let alone its cause of death, would be problematic.

Rock on.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I realize this aint for everybody, but if you take the time to listen to what these guys are doing, well....yeah.





edit: I just found this video, I haven't read any of the lyrics to the album (I just dig the music) but I do know that it's a concept album about two cosmic miners and their "adventures" in space. Or something like that.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
