    If you would use that defense for ACDC (which could be heavily contested, and quite easily at that) and then call the Beatles overrated, you are extremely misguided.

    don't get me wrong. The beatles are good. Just not as good as everyone says.... BUT without them we would not have bands like THE WHO... you know? They are important to music history.

    Hm... the ORIGINAL vocalist was good though. That is the ACDC I like. Like that "Can I sit next to you girl" Song... it's great. :headbang:

    Once again I stated the truth about said band and only did so as they were mentioned with a comment about how they seemed to sound funny, so I passed some enlightenment as to why they sound funny. Otherwise I have skipped the thread and made a comment pertaining to not being surprised or that it doesnt matter who listens to what.

    But now that we are this far I think I will just keep at it.

    So... I'll say it again, this is but another thread made by the OP that is for the sole purpose of bashing bands. There is no other explaination for the topic and that is the course the thread took as could be expected.

    If this was NOT the purpose the title would have been what bands do you think Symphony X listens to.

    now tell me Im wrong

    I don't see how you can ignore the blatant hypocrisy of your posts, but reasoning with you about it is like trying to reason with an evangelical christian. It's just not going to happen, so I'm going to quit before i waste more of everyone's time.

    Don't be so serious.

    Because I haven't yet done so, I'll now give my view on every band mentioned on this thread!

    Symphony X = Awesome
    AC/DC = Don't care about them
    The Beatles = Good stuff and seriously a VERY important band in the history of rock music
    Nirvana = They're alright
    Dragonforce = I liked the first album, they're bit of a joke now
    Nickelback = Well... You know, as Devin Townsend pointed out, they do some things right (production) but it's not the kind of music I really want to listen to...
    U2 = good music
    The Who = ok

    Right. The Bon Scott era AC/DC was decent stuff. But listening to any AC/DC after that is like eating a Papa John's pizza pie. When you first bite into it, it's pretty phenomenal but after a while every bite tastes the same and you're chomping on auto pilot.

    WIN.

    Also, I chuckled at how ridiculously wrong this thread continued to go AFTER this statement.

    I think I wouldn't be surprised if at least one of the members liked Shania Twain.

    wow, thats a tad lame for you Zach. I dont see any hyprocracy in pointing out the truth about a band when the subject came up as opposed to starting a bash thread.

    here I'll participate and make everyone happy

    I'd be really surprised if any of them listen to the Mamas and Popas intentionally... but hey you never know

    geeze I feel really intelligent having made such an important contribution to such a great thred

    anybody heard Russells Atomic Soul ? I hear all kinds of influences in there from Purple to Bad Company to Symphony X themselves, theres even one sweet song on there. Pretty decent CD

    Hey, don't totally knock/write off the Mamas and Papas. I like their version of "Dream A Little Dream Of Me". And with Russell Allen's melodic depth, who knows?

    And Atomic Soul has two sweet songs on it. ;)

    I may stand alone in thinking this, but I find it quite hard to find a song on Atomic Soul that is not sweet.

    need translation, dont know if your knocking it for not being METAL through and through or if your saying its a damn good recording ?

    me, I think there is a few totally sick songs, some pretty good songs and one kinda sweet song. Well rounded album IMO. I should get it back out and find the second "sweet" song Prismatic mentioned.

    Makes me wonder if one should be surprised if they listen to this on road trips ? I would guess not... nor their own stuff... thats a hard call ??? Lots of time little to do...
