I like to check-in to see what the white kids of America are listening to once in a while. Not only to feel smug but also in case there's a Guns 'N Roses-type brilliant band who's too cool for DiS's indie school.
Here's my impressions of about the 45 minutes I could stand. Bands I'd never heard of are marked with an asterik.
Coheed and Cambria. I'd heard OF them, but never really heard them. I was expecting a heavier sound but they were more like Fountains of Wayne in this video. Mildly entertaining. 5/10
Sick Puppies*. I blame Nickelback for this. 1/10
Kid Rock - Amen. This song makes John Mellancamp look a genius by comparison. 3/10
30 Seconds to Mars* - A Beatiful Lie. I blame My Chemical Romance for this. 2/10
Queens of the Stone Age - Make It Wit Chu. I normally hate this band, but this song was reasonably good. 6/10
Aiden*. More skater pop punk dogshit. 2/10
I was also treated to a couple of Bono save the world campaign commercials, which due to an Arcade Fire background may have been this past hour's highlight.
