The United States is a big place. Just being in one part of the US does not mean that you are near another. Maybe I should have said the NYC/NJ area.

I like it. It looks like the new songs fit into the set list nicely. It may be selfish of me, but I want them to become HUGE so that they will actually play shows in the states and I can see them live.

An example that no one brought up yet. When bands insult their fans by putting down their own albums/songs/etc. To me, that's like personally insulting someone's musical taste. Or when bands know that there are particular albums in their catalog that fans have a deep connection with and arrogantly claim that they will never make albums like those anymore. Here's one that made me stop li

Possible Solution?: Ozzfest/Warped Tour equivalent, but with bands like Bon Jovi/Leppard/Journey/Kiss/Aerosmith headlining and bands like H.E.A.T, Brother Firetribe, Treat, Harem Scarem, The Magnificent, Danger Danger (I know I'm forgetting a lot), etc stacking the bill? Ozzfest is no more, and if enough small bands could follow the Warped Tour model and get some headlining American bands

I was just thinking about this. When there is a band/solo artist with mostly amazing albums but maybe 1 or 2 that aren't good at all, do you get the lesser albums anyway to satisfy your "collector" OCD instinct, or do you avoid them because you don't want those songs ruining an otherwise perfect playlist when it's on shuffle? Because I know that we all have our own opinions, I di

I agree. Especially given the fact that in America, most of the biggest concerts are melodic rock/hard rock bands: Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Kiss, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi. Even bands like Night Ranger, Journey, etc still play bigger venues. Why is it so hard for Americans to get out of the "classic rock" bubble of those bands and enjoy new music by new bands that is along the same l

So far, I really like what I've heard. But I am also a big power metal fan, so I agree that your enjoyment will depend on how much of a genre stickler you are. Because I can get into a good song/catchy chorus no matter what genre it is, I like this album a lot. A great singer can bridge genres, (just look at all of the amazing songs in varying genres/influences that Queen were able t

I agree with the above comments about Riot Avenue. The first 2 albums were great, and they seemed to have lost their way on the last one. Hopefully this next one will mark a return to the catchy choruses.

The samples sound great. I've liked everything the band has done since the beginning. I know I can't do much about this living in the US using US iTunes, but just out of curiousity, are there bonus tracks for people in other countries?

I agree. Chandler is great, and both Outloud albums have some great songs.

Okay, here's 1 opinion: Yes, if Def Leppard never existed, there is no way that if you got those same members together, the output would sound like that. However, there is PLENTY of room for new bands to pick up slack when existing bands like Def Leppard drop the ball. Just take some major metal bands from the past few years: Avenged Sevenfold Killswitch Engage All That Remains Tr

I have a little overlap with posts above this one, but also some great ones that I met that haven't been mentioned (crossing many genres but you've most likely heard of most of these bands/artists). Most of these weren't official meet and greets, but just hanging out before/after shows. Also, MANY of these may never have been mentioned before on the board, but maybe you guys can expand your music

It's all semantics. In the big scheme of things, I don't think that Ms Perry cares what any of us on this board think. And no matter what I think of Katy Perry, she wins in the end because my young daughter (preschool age) is a huge fan of hers and her music is sometimes blasting in my house whether I like it or not. hehehe

Harry's original post reminded me of this story (I'm a drummer and big Buddy Rich fan. This was posted by someone on a Buddy Rich message board): "It was the summer of 1985 and Buddy was at the South Shore Music Circus near Boston, Massachusetts. Just before the show started, I saw Buddy seating people! He was the "acting" maitre d. As he was seating customers, he was telling

So far so good. Can't wait for the rest of the album. Also, on their Facebook, they said there was a new cover song on the album. I wonder what it is..................

It's not "calling" it bubblegum, it's stating what it is. If you want to call it bubblegum with lyrics that mean something to your interpretation, that's fine too. The hair band thing is what's called a "false choice" because one has nothing to do with the other. But you can see some of those bands had poofy hair, just like anyone can see that Katy Perry is a bubblegum

This isn't about the quality of the songs people write/have written for her. This is about the fact that the songs are written for an audience that likes bubblegum stuff. Even if the fact that a lyric or 2 is deeper than say, the backstreet boys, the people who have Katy Perry in their iPods, a HUGE majority have the rest of their iPod filled with bubblegum. Her songs aren't written for fa

Katy Perry is bubblegum because her albums are made by assembly line like early Avril (maybe all Avril, but I know the first albums were written by committee with Avril putting a mispelled title or random line in here or there). Putting a line or 2 to get songwriting credit while 3-4 songwriters are writing each song for you does not make you a "songwriter", "deep", "

There may be some overlap with above comments, but probably not all 10. I highly recommend checking any of these out if you haven't heard them. Most of them are really mainstream songs that you've probably heard many times. For a couple of them, it may be the first time these bands have been mentioned on this board. To paraphrase South Park's Eric Cartman: I respect everyone's "

Caroline's Spine used to open for lots of national glam metal bands in NJ in the late 90s, when there was a resurgence of many of those bands packing local club shows. CS had some great songs.

If nothing else, it's a good thing because it shows the "Hall of Fame" that it should get off it's ego trip and realize that it has no clout in the current music scene regarding reuniting bands if they are not intending to do so. Does anyone else remember the Van Halen and Guns N Roses fiascos? Why does the "Hall" think that it's such a big deal that it will force ban

Here are some that I am curious what the board thinks (has it, doesn't have it anymore). Some may be controversial picks..... Axl Rose Sammy Hagar David Lee Roth Alice Cooper (may be hard to tell due to the style of his singing) Gene Simmons (Paul Stanley was mentioned above) Robert Plant Tony Lewis Eddie Money Mike Reno Rob Halford Bruce Dickinson
