    Who sang that 'Real Real Real' Song?

    that was a one hit wonder as well, if I am not mistaken!

    jesus jones. also responsible for "international bright young thing"

    this was one of the bands that helped steer me away from terminal metal illness (ha!) in high school, and move me towards the proud dance music freak i am today. :p

    the lip-synchers or the real singers? blame it on the rain!

    Say what? Soundgarden is the furthest thing from a one-hit wonder.

    The collaboration between some of their members and Pearl Jam's for Temple of the Dog was one of the best collaborations of newer rock.

    these guys aren't a one hit wonder. i heard that chris cornell is new lead singer of rage against the machine. should be interesting.

    yes! they totally are.
    every good rocker slows it down and produces one or two of them in their career.
    one of the best ones ever...

    Love Bites - Def Leppard... oh yeah :D

    Newer rock?

    I think the proper term for the genre of music is Jock-Rock.

    I have heard several other labels for this music. For instance, crap, shit and garbage.

    Anyway, I also think that temple of the dog is the best of the shittest music on the planet.

    Really? Cool!

    I actually just heard that they're changing their name to "Rage Against Your Parents if They Won't Let You Fly the Cicle and Hammer Outside Your Window and Dread Your Hair".

    But that might just be a rumour.

    Yikes. I gave that tape a cursory listen a couple months ago just to see if it stood up, and lemme tell you; there's a reason nobody talks about them anymore.

    Hunger Strike fits the power ballad definition nicely.

    haha on the "best collaborations of newer rock" comment. Who's their competition?? Oh wait, they competed with themselves when they did Mirrorball with Neil Young.....which was another laughable release according to my ears.

    No it's college rock.

    Jock Rock/Jock Jams are groups like tumbawumba.

    But Soundgarden had some wicked tunes back in the day.

    Maybe for you, but we all have our opinions. It may be shitty to you, but to the next person the musical energy can affect them differently.

    I think it is in some instances unfair to judge music, especially one that is wholly created for the intention of artistic merit; which of course can lead to problems, because how do we know the band was not purposefully writing a hit, and saving the 'artistic' songs for the b-sides, or not putting it out at all.
  22. 20 Fingers & Gillette - Short Dick Man
    Rush - Presto (the song Show Me Don't Tell Me)

    From the Ministry of I have incriminated myself enough - I won't even get into the guilty tapes I have

    I disagree dude. Where I come from you got a free Soundgarden or Perl Jam tape with the purchase of any pair of hospital pants.

    Who cares if no one was their competition? I love the album. I love those bands. They take me back to a good place in my life. That's what matters to me. They are way better than any of the corporate rock now - linkin park, limp bizkit, creed... etc. - To me those bands have no soul at all.

    aw, james' "laid" isn't so bad. i still listen to that album when i'm depressed...nothing like moody, melancholic james.

    the flys-got you (where i want you)...i remember making out with a cute boy in a parked car years ago while that song was playing...i sang the chorus as he kissed my neck.
    " you where i want you, i want you"

    and wtf? tone loc is *classic*. he did a song with sexual innuendos for the children's movie "ferngully: the last rainforest", (christian slater was in that,) and then there's after dark & cheeba cheeba:

    man, don't cha hate it when you ain't go no weed
    it seems about tha time you really feel tha need
    to get high, get full, you know get blasted
    keep ya sayin' tha high it really lasted
    rollin' around tryin' not to get stopped
    by tha boyz, tha pigs, you know tha cops
    pull into one spot to see what they're all about
    suckers noddin' their head, tellin' you they're all out
    you go back to tha crib, pick up tha telephone
    you try it so i guess they saw you got home
    cause i can buy it o.z. or go buy dime
    i get cash for her i can get it on time
    it really makes no difference long as i get lit
    roll it in my zig zag take a big bone hit

    tone *knows*.


    rosey, which roommate? i bet it's ron...
