Too slow?! My mom likes her rap well-enunciated and decipherable, thank you very much.

I didn't say he was speaking too slowly, I said the beats were often too slow.

I thought Radiohead was the pinnacle of modern rock when OK Computer came out, but everything they've done after pales in comparison, IMO. I like the newer stuff but it doesn't blow me away.

That should do the trick.

Wow, so you have to force yourself to like them. Like lima beans.

Personally, I think they peaked with Kid A...though In Rainbow wasn't too bad.

* Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

I love so many of their influences (from the trad pop of Velvet Underground & Big Star to the more fuzz-pop of My Bloody Valentine and Jesus and Mary Chain to their supposed alt country-rock turn).

* The Go-Betweens and Kim Salmon

I grew-up in Australia, where it was de rigeur for every wannabe hip indiepopster to love these bands. I never did.

No, you don't have to force yourself. Their music and lyrics aren't appealing to everybody initially, but a lot of Radiohead fans I know got into them once they gave the music some good time and many listens.

another one for me is the 5678s

they have the right mix....influenced by 60s garage and 50s rock n roll.....3 japanese chicks......have "a look"

but I just cant get into it, it's too sonically dissonant to me and I cant find the groove

I once felt the same way about Guitar Wolf...

*edited once I realized I haven't listened to them in 10 years

I had thought about throwing in a "and Guitar Wolf" but I actually do like a bunch of their songs, and that band is *so cool* that there's no way I could ever say I wish I liked them more than I do
