went home this thanksgiving weekend and listened to the big rock station in LA,
KROQ. The station has been very influential on global media. They were the first
to play many bands that achieved stardom, and brought you Carson Daily, Adam
Corolla, and Jimmy Kimmel. The station is hard to listen to now. The current
play list is chalked full of former bands and current bands of former rock
stars. Every time I hear nirvana I get a little twitch in my neck. I didn't like
them much in the first place, so it's a cruel irony that they're held up and
placed on a pedestal, and played every 40 minutes on the radio.
expand this... Dave Grohl. Good ol’ Davey of Nirvana stardom has two other bands
that get played within those 40 minutes. Just between you and me the new Foo
Fighters album is not good and Queens of the Stone Age exist because they are
Another dead band, Sublime, can be heard constantly within
the 40 minute time span. Now, with this band I used to be a fan, but I can't
take "Bad Fish" anymore. Even the surviving members who made Long Beach Dub All
Stars get air play, and their concert is one too miss at all costs. Please call
KROQ (1-800-520-1067) and tell them to play something new for a change.
Rage against the machine, now I know for a fact that they
suck live, I've seen them suck live. It was a god awful out of tune mess on
stage. And the current reincarnation known as Audioslave.... could someone tell
me why this shit is on the radio?
crap off their album should never have made it past the station manager's desk;
they are only played because of notability. The verbal asterisk placed at the
end of their song when its played, "that was Audioslave with former members of
rage against the machine and Chris Cornell from Soundgarden" really is just to
let you know that even though it might suck, it is from people we told you to
like years back, and you are going to like them again.
