You won't get an argument from me, especially when it comes to The Lips. (Eels is not a 'lesser' band, though. Everett is one of the most underrated songwriters of the last 20 years.) They always have a project brewing, and they're almost forever touring. Do yourselves a favor, folks: whether you're a fan of the band or not, catch them live. Mindblowing. You'll die happy
I thought Electroshock Blues was okay, but I would probably consider them a lesser band than the Flaming Lips, especially if we're strictly talking about 2000-2005.
My favorite Pearl Jam album came out in 2000 (Binaural), Riot Act in 2002 was allright, not their best effort however.
I'd argue Riot Act was the best thing they released since "Vs.".
Vitalogy had highlights, No Code is one of the most poorly produced records I've ever heard, Yield was rubbish and Binaural was mediocre (IMO).
I'd throw a vote in for Queens of the Stone Age. "Rated R" was awesome and "Songs for the Deaf" is an all timer. I think "Songs for the Deaf" is one of the best "rock" records made in the last 20 years.
I'm a metal guy though so my knowledge is weak in this area.
Oh yeah Jimmy Eat World were a good band, I only heard some singles but they had their fans.
I'm sure the Foo Fighters are good, they just had that very generic sound that I associate with Nickleback though I'm not actually comparing them to Nickleback. So I forgot about them though I confess to not listening to half the bands not on that poll.
As for the other ones, half of them are hard rock and the others are ones that weren't well known so I wouldn't have included them but since there's no working poll up, suggest away.
Close enough. You make it sound like he suggested Beethoven or something. Rock/metal, pretty damn close.
Hardrock and metal are close, yes. Rock and metal are NOT close. There is a big diffrence there. Soad is in the Metal / Hardrock catagory. They are by far too heavy to be compared with the likes of Beatles, muse or even bon jovi. (Tho BJ have some "heavy" stuff)
I didn't include Foo Fighters because their music is on the whole, bland and uninspired. One By One and In Your Honor are good examples of that, there's 3 or 4 decent songs on each and outwith that it all sounds the same.
Forgot about Jimmy Eat World though, Bleed American and Futures is a good double for this timeframe.
this isn't real, it's only the internet
