    About the only time I do not listen to chill/trip hop/downtemp/ambient type stuff is driving home when I'm pissed off or at 3am when I've had a drink or 10. Current items topping my pissed off playlist is some Metallica, Godsmack, Slipknot, Amon Amarth, and Type O Negative.

    If I think back to what I was listening to in 97, 98 and 99, I'm thinking of Massive Attack, Outkast, that Billy Bragg/Wilco album, Lucinda Williams, Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse, Radiohead, Stereolab. There's basically no crossover with the pop charts. I did throw on that Sublime album every once in a while, but that's all that comes to mind immediately.

    A lot of good stuff started showing up around '01. Gorillaz, The White Stripes, the Strokes. It wasn't quite the huge deal that Nirvana ten years earlier was, but it was something.

    No mention of Tool yet. Cannot talk about 90s music without including them.

    90's rap was the best of times and the worst of times.

    ^i personally fucking hated this cheesy assed LL Cool J song/MTV video - but live and unplugged it was awesome.



    also here's another example of 90's rap (that was so bad it was good):

    of course you had the east coast/west coast hard/gangster rap... to which the individual songs hold up to the test of time, but those fucking albums were usually ruined by juvenile skits in between the songs (like all of the stupid petty vulgar stuff in between songs in The Chronic).

    I don't get why Rap Albums had those stupid skits in between songs... its just embarrassing to listen to whole albums + skits these days.

    The skits are just one of the stupid ass things you put up with if you listen to rap. I don't think anyone ever liked them other than the guys making them. The only exceptions are the albums produced by Prince Paul. And I kind of like the ones on the old Wu-Tang albums just because they are so terrible they're good. "I'll fuckin, I'll fuckin lay your nuts on a dresser, just your nuts lyin on a dresser, and bang them shits with a spiked bat, POW!"

    Never was the biggest fan but "Santeria" was always a hit at a party and still lifts my spirits if I hear it randomly today. Can't remember the last time I played it on purpose though.

    They were passable during the peak of the NuMetal thing, but that's about all I can say about them. I once saw them live as an opening act, and the guitarist was using a recorded rhythm part, as is common in bands with only one guitarist. Problem is, the dude screwed up and got out of synch, and it really bugged me.


    I'm not a huge fan of their studio stuff, but I take every opportunity I have to see Sevendust. They are one of the best live bands I've ever seen. In fact, there are only two other bands I've seen more than Sevendust, and those are two of my three favorites.


    Out of those three, I'm really only a Slipknot fan. They were actually one of the few that came to mind when I made the post you quoted.


    Agreed. I love that song, and I like the singles from Undertow, but I could never really get into Tool. Still, they're extremely talented, even if it's not my thing.
