There was a time when Cochella was like.. something I vaguely wanted to go to.

But this lineup?



I think I'd barely tolerate seeing maybe 1 or 2 of those. I don't know who 99% are. I am sure the crowd that this attracts would not be one I'd want to be around.

A Perfect Circle aside, there's not anyone I'd want to see. I don't discount that there may be acts I would be into had I heard of them, though. You might just be old, Eddie. :D

Back to the thread subject, NSA's post got me looking around and I found that APC just dropped a new track. It's more Thirteenth Step than Mer de Noms, and that is a bit disappointing. I've also been working my way through the Christmas gift music, so Sharon Jones (RIP) & the Dap Kings and quite a bit of Prince.

I went to a Robert Earl Keen concert just before x-mas. I hadn't seen the guy live in over a decade, and he looked a fair bit older, but damn, he still sounded phenomenal.

I would argue he's the best country/bluegrass artist you've probably never heard of if you've never lived in Texas. I could listen to No. 2 Live Dinner on endless repeat.

I missed APC. Speed reading a bit too speedily. But they are thee ONLY one I know. And yeah, not that I'm certain that I wouldn't like at least some of them, just never heard of 99.99% of them.

Just crazy to see such a huge line up and it all may as well be a foreign language.

Aside from the three headliners, I've never heard of a single one. But then again, I don't listen to a lot of alt-rock or hip-hop, so that's not a huge shock.

I'm old, and I largely stick to 70/80's classic rock and modern country. Most new music is shit. You kids, get off my lawn!

Jamariqui...or however you spell it...I didn't know he was still around! I seem to remember he had a hit about 20+ years ago. Some of those others like Beyoncé, Eminem, APC, I thought Coachella was a more about Indie music....I don't consider them "Indie".

Hell, I'm not even sure what Indie means. Independent? And what does that mean? They don't have a record label? If so, I don't think that pertains to those three.

Coachella was never indie. There have always been major acts on the bill, as it's a general music & art festival. I'd even go so far as to say that the annual Gathering of the Juggalos is more "indie" than Coachella has ever been.

K, NSA, I should have known, but I'm about as "up-to-date" on music as John Denver.

I've had the same NIN Cd in my car's player for so long, the two have practically fused together.

As usual with any band you're a fan of, In This Moments earlier albums are the best. Each progressive album gets more and more "general masses". Maria Brinks screaming/screeching (she sounds like an eagle!) is phenomenal on the first couple albums.

I've found myself just setting the SiriusXM dial to either 90s on 9 or 2K Hits and leaving it there for a while.

I'll appreciate any songs from those eras over anything from today it seems. Even rock out to some classic Britney Spears from time to time! (ISN'T SHE LUCKY)

Top 40 was turning to shit before I even got out of high school, and it has long been true that music worth listening to isn't gonna be from a major label, or be heard on a radio station not broadcasting from a college campus.

I mean personal preferences and all.. :trollface:

I don't think there is anything inherently wrong with music from anywhere just because its from somewhere particular, or is on the radio/etc.

I LOVED rap back in the day (90s). Dr Dre.. Snoop Dog.. Warren G.. all of that was awesome. I have no idea how it turned into the (c)Rap it is today. I don't know how to predict if my ears/mind will like, but typically I end up liking songs from a really wide variety of sources (and consequently disliking a fair amount too).

I'd say the closest I could get to pinning down how to like something depends on when/how you hear it.. so maybe you associate the song mentally with something good happening, or a person, or an amazing lay.. :drum:

There is A LOT to that, though it's not really the case with me and new bands.

Yeah, those are good channels. However, I've found myself constantly going back and forth between "Classic Rewind" and "Hair Nation" for the last month.

If you like 2K, "Pop Rocks" is a new channel in the same vein too.

Yeah I get stuck in a groove and stay on the channel until I realize I've heard the same 5 or 6 songs a billion times so its time to switch.

I do like the 80s on 8 countdowns they do.
Yeah, I noticed the Sirius/XM stations are just as bad about set list repeats as terrestrial stations.

They absolutely are. I noticed that driving to south tx and back. There was definitely a trend if you stay on the same channel too long. I remember hearing a song on Hair Nation I had never heard, and I really liked it. Then I heard it the next day.

However, this problem is mitigated to a degree on satellite radio by the sheer volume and variety of channels.

Now would be a good time to toss a "Oh, NSA." back his way, Drop. :D
Oh that would have been good, but too late. :lmao:

But to answer the question, no, I don't listen to music during "the act". I may have once or twice, but that's it, it's not a habit or some such.

Now....having a little porn on in the background....that we do often.

And for the above.. apparently the guy used Kurts vocals and the isolated drum track but re-recorded the rest of the instruments. He digitally moved the vocals to the new key.

I thought it sounded a lot better than just a filter or something.

Pretty cool.

Yes I have. I became a fan of them from that song. I then learned that they were local. I think it would be amazing to mash her vocals into the song or even have her collaborate.
