I think they are horrible/terrible/shite.
I hate them.
Someone agree with me.
and an idiot for saying so.
you're clearly an idiot.
What happened man :(
i can't listen to it.
Someone must agree.
I agree but with some alterations.
I really really love punk
I don't care if people agree
Thats where you and I differ, sir.
Dead Kennedy's are another - hate them too.
im not massive on the flag. like my war and some other stuff. prefer minor threat for oldschool hardcore stuff.
hating punk makes you a stupid.
Minor Threat though.
I just can't get away with these...
you hate punk but like minor threat? and atdi? and million dead?
So you are saying that the following are shit?
Sex Pistols, Exploited, Black Flag, SLF, Angelic Upstarts, Buzzcocks, Undertones, 999, Adverts, Clash, Damned, The Lurkers, Penetration, X-Ray Specs, Vibrators, Anti Nowhere League, Misfits, The Skids, Skrewdriver, Slaughter & The Dogs, The Slits, UK Subs, etc etc.
I grew up listening to that stuff. It got me out of mainstream bollox. If it wasn't for punk i might be a bloody X-Factor Fan!!!
my secret is up!
Skrewdriver became Nazi's.
for the earlier stuff they were just punks...
if they are i didn't know. I was 9yrs old man.
but they are like, well famous for being racist.
*gets all defensive*
and a nazi
note the 'wink' face.
*ignores the wink face*
Just you wait till i see you again mate, i'll fucking 'ave you.
oi oi oi OI OI OI!
white t-shirt, jeans, braces, doc martins.
I can safely say out of the bands i've heard i'm not keen on any of them.
And to me Atd-i and Million Dead don't carry that Black Flag sound. Thats what i really don't like. 2 minute songs, with thte same guitar riff all the way through. With horrible shouting (not screaming) vocals over the top.
i was replying to marcofellas list.
one of the biggest influences on Harmony No Harmony era MD. seriously, check out late-ish flag like my war. it has six minute long, really really slow, heavy but raw stuff on it, like "scream". also the faster songs on that album are pretty similar to million deads faster songs on HNH
All of the stuff i've heard was on the best of thing. And every song sounded the same. I realise that Black Flag were a huge influence to MD, i've heard FT talking about it, never really heard it much though.
I was being a bit hasty saying i really hate punk though. THere are some punk bands i do like. But you know...
i thought you'd be totally down with the flag james
by my war they were basically a metal band.
i saw a biiiig thread on some other message board and it was basically decided that My War invented grunge.
black sabbath + us 80s underground = my war = bleach
oi punk is mostly gash, apart from when they shout oi.
Oi! Oi! Oi!
pogo in my mams front room shouting oi over and over. Then my dad would have me over his knee and belt me!
Ah, happy days.
is a cockenknee obvs
Oi does it's job...
You know what every song will sound like.
and for that it was GOOD.
but, like, there was too much of it.
it doesn't matter if there was too much of it. Just choose the good stuff and ignore the rest.
There can never be too much music.
its american brother, however, was the sheezy
but there was a minority of good stuff and a majority of pants.
i get sent far too many Death Metal CD's from Denmark!!
i thought you had taste...
*shakes shaven head, spits on ground*
What? Crazy talk.
Not only were they sound FUCK-ING WICK-ED, they started SST, and I honestly think that this label is one of the greatest, and most influential, ever. Dinosaur Jr, Husker DÃ¼, Sonic Youth...
But hey, to each his own - it is fucking noisy. I reckon that if you played it to the average punter they'd fucking hate it too. I know my Ma did when I used to blast TV Party out of my Sanyo.
Ahhhhh - that explains a lot.
That your a youngun and it makes it more understandable. They're probably not as relevant these days or something.
Like I said, they're fucking noisy and raw and definitely not for everyone.
Wasn't meant to be a dig.
It sounded a bit harsh, just wanted some expanation. But fair enough...
I actually preferred them PRE-Henry Rollins, but whatever.
he sounded like johnny rortenn :(
you see black flag are great, and so are dead kennedys. youve lost hahaha
Black Flag are awesome, only silly miserable people disagree, i mean TV party. wow thats an ace song.
Thats just silly.
My opinion will be always be my opinion, and i just don't understand why everyone seems to love Black Flag.
what exactly dont you like about black flag though
I don't like, as previously stated, the horrible sounding guitars playing the same riff for 1 and a half minutes, while the vocalist shouts some bollocks over the top. It doesn't appeal to me one bit.
but they are good. I haven't heard past My War, and the recording and bass on that are shit. I'm not much of a fan of that.
All the stuff before that is amazing though. Not breaking any new ground like, but great.
FIX MY HEAD!
FIX ME PLEASE
I DON'T WANT TO BE DEAD!
on the whole anti-rollins bandwagon thing but his version of the louie louie cover made me pay attention and i have to say that now i love the entire episode.
plus, kira roessler played when heny was in.....and she was fit
Why are their CD's so consistently expensive?
Even second hand i've never seen a CD going for less than Â£8 or so...
This is strange.
see also: minutemen. although i have occassionally seen minutement for under Â£10.
