Montrovant,

The video was to the song "Criminal"... the video fits the song like a glove... a screwed up girl that like to ***** with a good man's brain...

She could use a few extra meals... too skinny...

I liked the earlier Metallica albums more than the newer stuff.. it went downhill, especially after the black album...

Speaking of Fiona Apple , do any of you know of a song that is either by her, or sounds like her type of song and voice--i forget most of the lyrics but there was something about smoking Marlborough (reds?)? I overheard someone playing it a while ago, and thought it was very catchy but haven't been able to find it.

you're half right. punk was, in all reality, started in the early 70's with the new york dolls. malcolm mclaren saw them in new york and went back to london hoping to start a similar madness. he happened upon johnny rotten, who made it into what it became, as mclaren made it into the media circus that basically spawned an entire movement. johnny rotten wanted it to be about being an individual, but obviously it became a group-mentality like any other scene. rotten says that his music got obsorbed by the "****stem." (i hope i don't get a warning for that : /) of course the early 80's in america spawned a whole different, larger and now more branched out movement of punk.

my senior thesis was on the history of punk rock ; )

and you're on the right track with kidney thieves and dresden dolls. i'd also check out (though i'm sure you're already aware of them) portishead and massive attack. maybe you haven't heard, but also good: aluminum group, kruder & dorfmeister, and supreme beings of leisure. good stuff.

I consider the black album the first of the crap from Metallica. It was noticably different in style, I think it was a sort of test-run to see how they could do if they tried a more marketable music. Don't know if you ever listened to Testament, they started around the same time as Metallica, in the same genre of music; unlike Metallica, they went the opposite way, and got heavier. One of the few bands I think actually improved as they got older.

I have it downloaded too, but I have yet to listen to it.

I have to say that "Eminem Presents The Re-Up" is one of the most disappointing albums to come out in a long while.

The only decent track is Eminem's "No Apologies."


In my mind I'm a fighter
My heart's a lighter
My soul is the fluid
My flow sparks it right up
An arsenic writer
Author with arthritis
Carpel tunnel
Marshall will start ****t-itis

Hard headed and hot headed
Bull headed and pig headed
Dick headed, a prick
A big headache, I'm sick
Quick witted, for every lyic spitted
There are six critics who wait for me to slip with it
So quick, this dynamite stick buried the wick
And it's going to explode any minute
Some lunatic lit it
And it's not Nelly
Do not tell me to stop yelling
When I stop selling I quit
So stop dwelling
And I am not failing

You ****ers are not ready
Because I got jelly
Like Beyonce's pot belly
This is Destiny
Yes money, I'm off running
So get off me
I'm not slowing or softening...

...My head hits the pillow
A weeping willow
I can't sleep
A pain so deep it bellows
But these cellos help just to keep me mellow
Hands on my head touched knees to elbow

I'm hunched over
Emotion just flows over
These cold shoulders are both frozen
You don't know me

I keep saying it and I can't stress it enough
So keep playing it and stand next to the subs
I choke mics like asphyxiation
When I'm strangling my own throat masturbating

**** yeah I'm a basket case
And I mastered this rap **** until my ass gets wasted
Until my assassination
Until I'm slain because of some ***'s infatuation

.44 mags a fascination
A taste for disaster and if that's the case then...

...This song isn't for you, it's for me
A true MC
It's what it do just to see if he still has it
And if his skills mastered
He's able to spill raps long after his killed

That's a real MC
Got you feeling me
Whether willing or unwillingly, you still agree
As long as there's still this hunger and will in me
Than expect a longer life expectancy

I'd be a savage beast if I didn't have this outlet to salvage me
Inside, I'd be exploding, soaked in self loathing
And mourning, so I'm warning you, don't coax me

It's silly, I'm really a sheep in wolf's clothing
Who only reacts when he gets pushed
Don't be fooled, the press blows up this whole thing

It's stupid, they don't know because they don't see that I'm wounded
All they did was ballooned it
I'm sick of talking about these tattoos, cartoon did
That's why I tuned it out
I'm sick of duking
And they can suck my dick while I'm pucking

Portishead, beautiful vocal, hip hop opera rock... awesome.. Portishead in NYC is great CD...

Massive Attack, I like to meditate to some of their stuff...I like Future Shock a lot..

Montrovant,

I haven't heard Testament probably in 15 years... I do remember them...I think I mellowed as I got older... I should give them a listen for nostalgic sake...

How about the Stooges(Iggy Pop)? Weren't they one of the founders of Punk as well?

as usual, pup, you're on the ball. yes, iggy and the stooges were certainly an influence, but the "creation" of punk is normally attributed to the sex pistols or (gag) the ramones. if you actually listen to the music and also look at their clothing style, the new york dolls are unarguably the founders of the punk movement. unfortunately, what is now considered modern punk is the most horrible music ever in existence. you can blame california for that one. however, punk continues to evolve and only needs one more good stint underground to create something powerful and meaningful again. that's just my opinion.

BBP, Stooges yes, but I have to agree with bears about the sex pistols, and the ramones. I still really enjoy Pennywise, that's some good punk imo! MXPX wasn't too bad with their early stuff, either. Blink182 was great but quickly faded after enima of the state.

Any of you like finger eleven? I enjoy their melodic rock, with the spalsh of good lyrics.

I'd like to get into some of my favorite songs!

1. Sleep now in the fire - RATM
2. Gotta get away - The Offspring
3. Science - SOAD
4. Megalomaniac - Incubus
5. Opiate - Tool

Some very good songs on the top of my list! All so very influential in my life .
