Default Your music "hot takes"...

Give me your best controversial "hot takes" on music. It can be about a certain band/artist, genre, trend, etc in music! The more controversial/unpopular the better!

Here's one from me...

Pete Willis/pre-Mutt Lange Def Leppard shits all over Phil Collen/Mutt Lange Def Leppard!

To me, the Oak Ridge Boys shined brightest when my most favorite member was a part of the act, I love my late beautiful precious Steve Sanders so much!



God bless you and his family always!!!

Holly

P.S. Steve is the one at the top of the picture.

I don't agree, but I'll put it higher than I would have a few months ago when I had only heard horrible copies of it

Rock music basically died after The Strokes (the last great rock band from the early 2000's). NOTHING from the past 15 years or so, from any new band is memorable.

I think The Bee Gees are one of the greatest bands of all time.

Hell I love their disco stuff too. I think they were a brilliant band. Michael Jackson admitted that they were the inspiration for his "Off The Wall" album. Another brilliant album!

I think that it's atrocious that The Dixie Chicks say one little sentence while in a different country and they get completely vilified so badly, by so many people, that it pretty much killed their career.
Yet Linkin Park make an album that has a few songs that put down the same President and not a single thing happens.
I don't know if it was misogyny or not, but it sure was wrong.

^^^ That girl of the Dixie Chicks decided to put out there what made sense to her. What she obviously did not consider is the fact that everyone else's freedoms and rights are no different and usually when one person makes the first move like she did, other people are going to then put out there whatever their feelings are too.

God bless you always!!!

I see your point but I hate it when music artists use their stage to push their political agendas/opinions onto their audience. That's not what concert goers are there for. They are there to be entertained. To come hear the artist's music and watch them perform. That's why we pay ridiculously high ticket prices to go see them. I don't go to concerts to watch bands or artists spout their opinions on political, social, and religious matters. Artists needs to respect their audience more than that. My beef with Natalie Maine wasn't her personal opinion of the president. It's the fact that she felt the need to go there at all on stage in front of a captive audience.

Default Get rid of the triggered kits!

Initially I didn't really mind it, but I've finally grown weary of triggered drums. The unnatural & artificial sounding triggered kits are really starting to annoy me. I'll still listen to music with them, no choice but to if I still want to listen to certain bands & artists, but it's really getting to be a major turnoff. Please bring back great sounding acoustic drums with resonance. A drum has two drumheads for a reason, it's called resonance & sadly, that natural resonance of the drumkit is lacking greatly with many modern drummers, especially in technical death metal. How 'bout we get away from this 'robotic' & 'programmed' sounding crap & get back to the real deal.

What has been the reasoning behind the move to triggered drums? What's the perceived advantage because, as with you, nobody I know likes them.
