wow, good poll question. a very tough topic no doubt. Most of those are very shitty.

I like Clipse, Dr. Dre and some other "gangsta rap" so i guess i can't pick that one. THough most of gangsta rap truly is awful.

I like Editors, She Wants Revenge, and Interpol so I can't say "21st Century Post punk ripoffs"

pop country is bad, but far less agonizing than other categories....

hmmmm

i think for me its a 6 way tie betwee Nu metal, Hair metal, post grunge, pop punk, eyeliner emo and christian.

maybe i'll have to give the edge to eyeliner EMo. Especially if that includes Screamo

Gotta go post-grunge. There's at least a sense of fun and/or stupid catchiness in everything else.

I don't consider "Christian" a genre, because they have music of every genre. Anybody remember The Swirling Eddies? They were like the Dead Milkmen of Christian music.

Honestly, Gangster Rap is probably the worst, but I like a lot of the old-school stuff.

I also don't see Creed and Nickleback as "post-grunge." They're not an extension of the grunge movement, they're a regression to simpler rock.

Also, Deftones were nu-metal too, and they were fucking awesome for the first two albums. That'll always be true nu-metal to me.

No matter though, whatever you wanna label them, it's the worst thing out there. Eyeliner emo is a close runner-up.

Seriously. Grunge ended around 96, then nu-metal took over with Creed and Nickelback following shortly afterwards. They were a reaction to rap/rock, not an evolution of grunge. Creed has absolutely nothing in common with grunge. They'd be better classified as Clear Channel Rock.

I agree with that, I just don't think it's appropriate to sully the legacy of grunge by saying that that garbage is in any way a derivative of it.

M Sparks
03-08-2008, 09:05 AM
At the peak of grunge, there were plenty of bandwagon jumpers sullying that legacy before it was even written.

For me, Grunge was more of a palette cleanser than anything else. It helped clear the shit off mainstream radio and MTV. By that point, I had already given up on mainstream radio, so it never made much of an impact on my life. It made the world better, though. When I was a freshman in college, my dorm neighbors were listening to Milli Vanilli and Young MC. When I was a senior, they were listening to Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. I never liked any of them, but the latter years were much more tollarable.

I chose the post-grunge option...although I hate christian rock (isn't creed chistian rock?) just as much. The reason I chose post-grunge is because I have heard more of it compared to christian rock. The only christian rock I have heard is on those infomercials for christian rock compilations.

If jesus ever came back to earth I would personally re-kill him.

Creed is the Pearl Jam sound watered down into mildly grunge-flavored Clear Channel arena rock ballads, with pseudo-spiritual lyrics and crucifixion posturing in videos and on-stage. Scott Stapp tries to sing exactly like Eddie Vedder, as well. Bands like Nickelback, Hinder, Daughtry, Default, Finger 11, etc just follow the Creed model for bucks, but without Jesus.

thelastgreatman
03-08-2008, 12:20 PM
Just because Scott Stapp did an Eddie Vedder impression doesn't make it post-grunge. It had nothing to do with grunge. Creed sounds more like Live than it does Pearl Jam, and Live isn't exactly grunge.

Also, why in the fuck wouldn't Creed be in Christian Rock? P.O.D. is nu-metal, to boot.

STALINZZZ
03-08-2008, 12:44 PM
Creed and Nickelback can be considered post-post-grunge. I would say that Live is considered post-grunge, as is Bush. Grunge however is the genre with the least amount of bands that were HUGE.

List of grunge bands that were HUGE:

Nirvana
PJ
Soundgarden
Alice In Chains
STP (it's stretch to call them grunge)
Hole (maybe)

thelastgreatman
03-08-2008, 12:45 PM
Core was definitely grunge, and most of Purple. They just also delved into other vibes--which I personally think was their better work.

Live can't really be post-grunge cause they were going on at the same time. They were just non-grunge rock of the era.

STALINZZZ
03-08-2008, 12:49 PM
yeah I guess I just consider Live post-grunge because Throwing Copper, which was their seminal album, came out in 1994 as did Sixteen Stone and Bush is pretty much the definition of post-grunge.

thelastgreatman
03-08-2008, 12:54 PM
I fucking hate bullshit sub-genre definitions. From wiki:
By 1993 some of the first post-grunge bands (notably Bush, Collective Soul, Everclear, Our Lady Peace and Live) had been signed to major labels and were beginning to garner mainstream attention.

This is horseshit. They were just other alternative rock in the case of Live and Bush. That other shit wasn't actually popular for another year or two at least.

STALINZZZ
03-08-2008, 12:56 PM
Collective Soul still has a respectably large and dedicated fanbase. I agree though sub-genre shit is shit.

Yeah, I remember my scene friends trying to tell me how Deftones were hardcore or whatever, and I don't buy that shit at all. They were what post-grunge should mean--that which followed and grew out of grunge. Sorry, I don't see the connection between Deftones and earlier hardcore acts the way it seems blatantly obvious that they grew up on grunge and then got a little older and started developing a form of music that took its aesthetics but upped the energy--a more alternative alternative to the alt-rock period of the early 90s. The guitar work was just speedier grunge licks, not an update of hardcore from what I ever heard.

I don't think anyone was. I just misunderstood this "post-grunge" thing. Seriously, how are Bush and Live "post-grunge?" They're listed examples in the wiki for it. They both came out like a year or two tops after the grunge explosion, grunge wasn't even over yet, so how can they be post-grunge? They were just alternative. Post-grunge is bullshit.

And maybe rap is only a part of it, but you cant deny..
well... shit like this:

How is it remotely different from violence in movies? Why is the Sopranos any better than 50 Cent, exactly? I'm not just disagreeing for the fuck of it, but I think it's kinda silly for you to call gangsta rap out (about 15 years too late I might add) as socially irresponsible. Know what's actually socially irresponsible? Gangs. Do you think rap inspired gangs? No. The gangs came first. They permeated the world that (some) of these rappers grew up in. And I can tell you for a fact that in Compton, Inglewood, NY, Camden, Newark... it's not just hype. They started making music about it because art has always been the vehicle by which the disenfranchised make their voices heard. I'm sure you'd prefer that they all responded by making socially responsible Will Smith public service announcement raps, but frankly that's just neither good lyric material nor would it be reflective of the inner-city black culture's true desires. Every once in a while they'd come out with something that reflected on the evil of what they were doing... but at the end of the day it's still gangs that get respect, that act as a militia to represent patriotism for their neighborhoods, that have the power and money and women and that are therefore more desirable to the market rappers are targeting.

You should try thinking a little deeper and consider the fact that until NWA and The Chronic started showing up in white teenagers' stereos you didn't hear too much about just how serious street gang violence was/is, did you? Perhaps by frightening the middle-class by promoting the gang lifestyle they did a lot more to draw useful attention to the problem than any positive message music could have.

well it seems that not everybody noticed that in the poll we have an option called eyeliner emo (fall out boy, panic at the disco, my chemical romance) and GRUNGE, POST-GRUNGE AND ANY GRUNGE is fuckin better than every type of emo.

and even nu metal is better than eyeliner emo

do you prefer panic at the disco, fall out boy, my chemical romance (eyeliner emo) over post grunge(remember theres a lot of bands better than nickelback)?

I do.

I prefer superficially catchy but stupid music to music with absolutely nothing to offer me. All three of your examples I quite enjoyed the first few times I heard them. Eventually I realized that there was no substance there, but it was fun for a few listens.

The fact that you call it "eyeliner emo" means you're more concerned with the "scene" and the "fashion" than the music. I don't go to the shows, or see the videos, or see these kids with all the bands written on their Pee-chee folders.

I actually got Panic's first CD as a gift. I read a good review that sounded interesting, mentioned it to someone, and got it for Christmas a few weeks later. I really liked it- eventually it got on my nerves, though. About six months later, I saw them on TV playing somewhere, and- I'll admit it- they were pretty annoying to watch. If I had seen them before I heard them, I might not have given them a chance- so I understand where you're coming from.

I had actually heard MCR before and hated them. But I heard Black Parade somewhere and genuinely liked it. Picked up the album because it was like $9 at Target. It's a total rip off of Queen and Pink Floyd. But I like Queen and Pink Floyd, so what's wrong with that?

Fall Out Boy- I was in a rental car in rural Washington state. We had been listening to the radio for days and it was driving us insane. The only things we had heard that we liked was Gnarls Barkley and Fall Out Boy. We wound up buying CDs at a Wal-mart in a small town that had no music store...bought those two albums, plus the newest Pet Shop Boys. Probably the only three listenable CDs you could find at a rural Wal-mart. I thought there were 5 or 6 really good pop songs on the FOB CD. It's good for what it is- disposable pop-rock. I don't know if I've ever seen a picture or clip of these guys, and I wouldn't associate them with that whole "emo" thing if it wasn't for people like you who constantly lump these three bands together.

And apparently, they are the ONLY three "emo" bands...I never hear anyone else mentioned. I don't really hear that they have much in common musically. I don't get it. Apparently, Fall Out Boy's haircuts and makeup makes them the same as everyone else with similar haircuts and makeup. I just don't hear it in the music.

And growing up in the hair-metal era...I totally understand that. There were probably some talented bands that I totally dismissed when I was a kid because their manager told them to tease their hair up.

To me, "emo" was stuff like Sunny Day Real Estate and Jimmy Eat World. I still really love Jimmy Eat World-been listening to them since they were playing little clubs in AZ. Even then, I didn't understand the label. And I don't see how any of these three bands have much in common either.

Anyway...you mention that there's "better bands than Nickelback." First of all...understatement of the century. EVERY band is better than Nickelback. But by saying that, you''re implying that these are the worst acts each genre has to offer. Since "eyeliner emo" is only ever mentioned by people who hate it, and no one is capable of pointing out anyone but these three examples...I have to assume that I kind of like THE ENTIRE GENRE! Because there's only 3 bands, and they are all not that bad! I do like Green Day, though I haven't seen them in 14 years. And Interpol is OK. But everything else on this list is shit, so I guess "eyeliner emo" is my favorite. And I didn't even know it!

Fuck genres and fuck this poll. I like music myself. Some of you guys love to subdivide the music YOU like into tiny little sub-genres. ("Are you retarded? That's 'Trance', not 'Hard Trance'. 'Trance' blows.") Then you lump everything you don't like into one big genre. ("Dwight Yoakam? What's next...Toby Keith?") How about actually developing a critical thought for yourself? How about judging music on it's own merits (or lack of) instead of what the band looks like in their Teen Beat centerfold?

Best part about getting old is you stop giving a fuck about what other people think and start seeing the world as it really is.

The artists in your "nu-R&B" genre are at lest respectable.

Well, they are one of the reasons I stopped watching anything on TV having to do with music, and stopped listening to certain radio stations. At one point everywhere I went I had to hear this music, and it was pretty bad. Even in the grocery stores or at a restaurant, they would play the same songs over and over and over.

Thank god for Napster, or I would have given up on music entirely.

TheWatcher
03-11-2008, 10:06 AM
I know this sounds stupid, and I know "everyone" hates Nickelback, but I just don't think they are as bad as the other groups lumped into the "post-grunge" category. What is it that makes them so hated?

The other bands in this category have no soul at all to their music, it's just.. dead. No feelings expressed. Empty. When I hear Hinder I change the station very quickly.

Also, I do agree that post-grunge is not accurate for bands like Hinder and Creed. As someone pointed out, the Deftones and Korn seem more like what came from grunge.

Although I was being hostile, I'm willing to be enlightened. Which bands are "most representative" of "Post Grunge" or "Nu-Metal"? Because it may turn out that I agree with you.

Of the bands listed on this stupid poll, the "emo" bands are the most listenable to me. Korn is the only one of the "nu-metal" bands listed that is anywhere close to good music and, sorry, I'd take MCR over them. Well, the new album anyway. I'd probably pick Korn over their old shit.

So what are these great "post grunge" bands that Nickelback is giving a bad name?

Where do you guys put Avenged Sevenfold...because I'll agree that garbage is awful. To me, they fit in with Korn, but it seems like everyone wants to lump them in with emo. Just the clothes? Stop obsessing over looks.

i wouldn't call most of the options genres, i'd call them gimmicks.....what they all have in common is the constant recycling of a bad idea to sell records......

Country, by far. It's the only big genre that I view as dead. It hasn't evolved since the early 80's and that to me is a dead genre. Also there are only 6 topics for country to talk about and I have NEVER heard (unless it's by Outlaw Country artists such as Cash, Nelson, ect).
1. Drinking and getting dumped for drinking.
2. Patriot songs
3. Complete fucking random shit (i.e Honkey Tonk Budunka donk, She Thinks My tractors sexy)
4. Their pet (Horse, Dog usually)
5. Their Truck
6. Falling in hillybilly love.

so glad to see the results of this poll. nothing worse than nickelback / creed / hinder shit. 'post grunge' sounds pretty accurate to me though (without any offense to actual quality grunge era music)-- it somehow seems to be a bland, processed derivative of grunge music-- the hugeness of the riffs, the generic hoarse voice singer, etc

also, the 2000s post-punk revival brought so, so many good bands to the table that i would vote it the best genre on this poll

It's silly and pretty arrogant to pigeonhole all music made by people who attain to a religion that represents 3/4ths of the US population.

You give him too much credit. I haven't heard that name, or country music in general, in months. Nothing is deserving of so much hate if you can ignore it for months on end lol though I do agree about the Stagecoach soiling. At least it has all those months in between to recover. Coachella to Stagecoach is like that waited all year for a hot chic. Got the hot chic. Banged her the next weekend. Then fucked some dog of a bitch when she started fucking every other guy around the world, scarring him into waiting for a hot chic to fuck with. Full circle.
