oh yeah i guess there were like some songs or something too...
awful awful times.
But I still remember seeing the video for Tomorrow Comes Today really late night on MTV2 and thinking, 'hey thats pretty cool'.
and it was.
Still, a few boring bits aside, its a pretty swell LP
then put Hybrid Theory back in my CD player.
But I like it now.
and realised that it's now as old as I was when I first heard it.
It is still as dull as it was then as it is now.
More adventurous than your usual post-punk indie schmaltz.
twenty-one year old me agrees
for its video as that mix (which was the one all over Radio 1, in fairness, which must have confused stupid people)
Who's with me?
But each to 'is own
Ah, the summer of 2001. Also home to such luminaries as Crazy Town, OPM and Wheatus.
Annoys me SO much.
Just looked it up and it's Rhinestone Eyes. I normally quite like Gorillaz but Jesus Christ. How can you not find those vocals INSANELY IRRITATING?
I don't know. Maybe it's just Fifa that makes it seem more annoying. They seem to go out of their way to pick the most horrible music possible for those games, at least in the last couple of years anyway.
Yes I am bored, apologies for the tangent. I remember all the hype for their debut LP, and particularly how awesome everyone thought Clint Eastwood was. The song, that is. He is awesome though.
I bought the 19-2000 single after seeing the cool video on TV. Happy days.
"I WAS LISTENING TO (slightly) COOL MUSIC WHEN I WAS 9 YEARS OLD" thread.
Haters be hating.
because I'm a twat.
I took it into school and we all danced around to 'twist and shout'.
It is 15 years this year since I walked into Woolworths and bought Odelay by Beck on cassette, thus changing my musical life forever.
It is 20 years this year since I witnessed Nirvana perform Smells Like Teen Spirit on Top Of The Pops, thus scaring me immensely, and indirectly changing my musical life forever.
It is 27 years this week since I was born.
These things make me feel old.
you can almost get free bus journeys
Absolutely insane that Nevermind is 20 years old this year, when I was 13, the antics of the Beatles and Stones and Led Zeppelin seemed centuries ago, but at 33, nevermind seems only about five years old or something. Gorillaz feel like they've been going for a couple of minutes! Some bits of this still seem fresh as a daisy though.
Bit of a mess but fair few songs I do return to!
Demon Days is a lot better though.
