    Also: @Elfboy, you should have a listen to @Burning Rave's links. That was a good variety -- although it was almost entirely recent rock, and the sort of rock to be on rock radio and not hit radio. (I got warm fuzzies when I saw "It's Been A While" in there Brings back memories...)
    Yeah, unfortunately, most of the rock I listen to are more recent.

    I guess you can say mid 90's to now. And that reminds me.

    OMG, I have such an incredible dislike of you.

    I mean, I don't know you in really life, and it might well be you are a great person, but every single comment you make or opinion you have, I have the totally opposite one! Isn't that amazing? You are so good at getting under my skin and we never even talked! (you can take that as a compliment).

    Regarding rock, if i had to transpose my gut feelings on paper, I'd say I like the sequence and I like the strength as well. You're an 7w8 too, you should understand that!!
    Seriously, rock comes directly from the blues, so that's that, you have a chord sequence there, you know, 4/4. And what does rock have that blues doesn't? It's that strength. Maybe you find it noisy, but I can tell chords apart, so for me it's not noise, it's music! Do you know what I mean?!

    Ps. What do you mean with over simplistic? How can an elaborate riff be over simplistic? Or a solo? Besides, all current popular music is based on 4/4 times, bass+2guitars+drums+singer. So what do you mean by over simplistic? Please tell me what kind of music you like so I can sustain an argument. Thanks.

    I like it because its generally the easiest music for me to daydream to.
    Everything that I express is simply an opinion with varying levels of support

    If I seem like a different type to you, I hereby give you permission to type me however you want.

    not really. I didn't say I wanted to fuck you up. I was just honest, and told you how reading your posts makes me feel.

    If you dislike rock songs you would dislike these songs too.

    I want to start a thread called "Why do people like classical music?". Why does no one put that one into question? It's goddamn boring. I mean, I can enjoy many composers and the melody for what it is, but the rest, it's so contrived, so perfectionistic, so sick. Where is the feeling, where is the honesty, the imperfection, the humanity in it? Seriously, why do people put rock into question and not classical music? Because it's up on a pedestal! But why don't we discuss that as well?
