Anyone here a fan of them? I went to the Krock Audioslave concert on Haloween and it was awesome. They're also playing on Leno tonight in case in any one wants to know.

Big fan. Caught them at Lollapoluza a few years ago. Great show. Them and Velvet Revolver are two of the best around.

There no Rage or Soundgarden but there cool. The second album was a big letdown for me but I loved the first.

At the concert they actually played a bunch of Rage songs(some soundgarden too). I knew they would and thought it would be pretty weird with Cornell rap/singing, but it really wasnt. He pulled it off flawlessly. And the Garden was absolutley rocking during the Rage songs! Unfrigginbelievable it was. To name a few of the Rage songs- Bulls on Parade, Killing in the Name of, with a 2 or 3 more I think. Soundgarden songs were Blackhole Sun(acoustic solo version by Cornell-awesome to say the least), Spoonman, and one more I can't remember right now.
And they also played one of the songs from their new album coming out, and I have to say it was very different from their first 2 albums. I'd say there was a bit more Rage influence in the riffs. Sounded real good to me. Theyre supposedly done with their next album and it should be coming out some time next yr.

I can't stand this band or 99.9% of modern radio rock.

How's "FREE FM", aka WYSP working our Jon?

Audioslave is a great band. Their sophomore album was a letdown though, as you said.

Coheed and Cambria is the best band ever !

I must say that I'm a bit out of the loop as to what is on the radio. I honestly haven't listened to an actual radio program outside of talk radio on the AM channels in almost over a year. Couple that with being even moreso out of the loop since I haven't watched MTV in around 3 years or any of that other music TV crapola that is out there.

And I'd much prefer Tom Petty over most of these newer, cruddy bands!

Last dance with Mary Jane... one last time to kill the paiiiiaiiin.

Ahh, C+C.

I remember them when they were called Shabutie and have their demo somewhere under that name...

Are they really that popular now? Their first cd was pretty good, but the 2nd one was pretty bad IMO.

Audioslave is proof that you can take two unique, different, great bands, combine them, and somehow completely lose all of the energy that each previously possessed.

They're definately getting pretty popular, but I couldn't see them ever be considered mainstream. I liked the 2nd album as much as the first, this newer one's a bit different.. good just different. They're a weird bunch of guys writing all their lyrics based on a comic book they're writing.. Still the music's great.

I agree with the radio assessment. I haven't listened to the radio in years. There are some great underground bands out there you can find on the internet. It just sucks when they start to get big and change their music.

I use Tom as an example because I can't stand his voice, but I KRock plays old bands I like too. There's just something about hearing 14 year old songs 8 times per week that just drives me insane.

Your local rock station also changed their format to music/talk/"lifestyle" hybrid called FREE FM. KRock and all other Infinity Broadcasting owned stations will swtich to it after the new year I believe.

I like C+C, but I don't "love" them. In the "obscure mainstream" category, I'm a Mars Volta man,

Big fan of At The Drive-In, bigger fan of The Mars Volta. I need to see those guys live while on peyote or something. Oh god.

Sparta's first album was pretty good. The second one I dont care for too much - the lead singer tends to whine IMO.

They are def not a "mainstream band", but they will be live on MTV sometime in the future according to their emails. So thats a step in the wrong direction for sure.

Yahoo Launchcast, or rather internet radio in general is far superior than satellite radio in just about every way.

except in your car, sitting out in the park, camping, walking down the street, or anwhere you arent in front of your computer. not to mention the cd-quality of the audio as compared to the 48-128k range you get with internet radio.

I'm a Stern listener, so I'll be going Sirius. The programming looks better to me, but the equipment is garbage compared to the XM stuff.

Are you talking about Martha Stewart, or the 24hrs of fart sounds that Hoo hoo is planning for his big intro?

"Edgy" enough that even an XM subscriber like you knows about it.
