    The Police? Really? Uhh have you actually listene to an album of theirs or are you basing it off the hits? Even then, the hits are fucking great albeit overplayed.

    Seeing the Boss at Bonnaroo made me understand why people are fanatics about him. I like some of his stuff and some of it still strikes me as kind of cheesy, but I understand the appeal.

    People have tried to convince me otherwise but its gotten to the point that I flat out dislike springsteen. Especially growing up in the northeast where he is worshiped.

    I think he's basic rock 101 and his music is trite.

    One of my best friends might as well be typing with a boner every time he swoons over Death Grips on Facebook, and I just don't get them at all.

    For the Police, I like some of their hits and I haven't really listened to albums. (trying to remedy that, still don't really dig the music) They just feel super overrated to me.

    And as far as Bruce, I dunno. The hits bore me to death. I recently listened to Nebraska for the first time and I enjoyed it but I can't really get past his voice and the overall cheese factor. I also feel like there are so many other artists out there that don't get the same recognition/hype as Bruce, even though they might be better/equally as great. Obviously this has to do with the insane fan base Bruce has.

    Death Grips is dope, but they aren't a band that will change the world.

    Some white kids love to fetishize black culture, whether it be artsy conscious bs rap or angry, grimey, hoodrat rap. Death Grips, OFWGKTA, and Lil B satisfy both of these needs

    I watched this show with Patrick, and feel the exact same way. If people like his music, I can see why they would want to see him over and over again. He really does put on a great show. I enjoyed myself at his Bonnaroo performance, even though I didn't feel the need to stay for the entire thing. I wasn't a convert by any means, but I left that show "getting" it and was fairly impressed.

    I mean, that's kind of glossing a lot of different ideas. I agree there is a fetishization, but I don't really think Death Grips falls into that (Zach Hill on drums, hardcore/noise influence etc). Lil B', ASAP, OFWG I can see falling into that category kind of...

    But I feel like artists like Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Schoolboy Q etc etc are actually perfecting a new gen/movement of hip hop. ASAP, Lil'B, OF are of course grouped together with these others by the media and fans...

    But there really is some great hip hop being made right now by these young black dudes. So what I'm getting at is "Black white asian hispanic goddamnit it don't mean shit to me fuck your ethnicity"

    I was recently talking to a Bruce fan about my Bonnaroo experience, and kept forgetting that "sexual healing" was one of the things with which he wanted to build those houses. His planned seemed fairly detailed, if not incoherent. On that humid Tennessee evening, it was most definitely Motherfucking Boss Time.

    But, yeah, Bruce is probably one of those "you have to see him live for more of an appreciation" artists. Even if you don't like his music, a level of appreciation should be clear. You don't have to like an artist to get why someone would. I don't like The Knife, Kraftwerk, Animal Collective, and most synth pop stuff...but I understand why people would.

    Yeah but that's because, aside from a few exceptions, white people rapping is a joke.

    I think it's misleading to label Death Grips as "hip-hop."

    Bruce's stage banter and gestures have always been kind of goofy (remember his Super Bowl performance?).

    I've seen him with the E Street Band live five times. It's not just him, it's Max Weinberg's drumming, Roy Bittan's piano, etc, that make the live shows seem like a huge celebration. It makes me glad to be alive.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I think this is fair of OF... but Death Grips is musically unlike any of that.

    How is Death Grips so different musically? Is it because Zach Hill is in the group? I'm sure if you search hard enough you can find punk and ghettotech influenced agro rap that sounds just like it, probably from Michigan.

    I only really ever listened to Danse Macabre. I was very much into the whole electro-clash thing at the time. I have Media as well, but it didn't really do anything for me.

    They're not a bad band by any means. There was just an influx of "OMFG!!!" esque posts on fb/the boards when they were added to FYF.

    I've been seeing it a lot today too since they just added a PHX date.

    That's because they haven't played a lot recently, and a lot of people really liked them back in the day. I really like Blank Wave Arcade and Danse Macabre.

    Maybe it was an off night for the Faint. TVOTR opened for them and I enjoyed that a lot more. Which kind of says a lot because TV on the Radio aren't the greatest live act either.

    Exactly what Casey said about the excitement. A Lot of people who were fans in their late teens/early 20s and the band hasn't been around for several years.

    Fair enough. I think that tour with TVOTR was in 2004... so it's definitely been a while. Didn't catch them in 2008.

    Jack White bores the shit out of me. I liked a bit of White Stripes early on, but I haven't been able to get into anything he's done since. I guess he can play guitar, but so can Steve Vai and I don't really give a fuck about him either.

    I share the same opinion. I listened to Danse Macabre non stop in high school but just lost complete interest in them. But I saw them at the Glass House when I was about 16 so it would be nice to relive some old memories.

    FYF is really good at the nostalgia thing...they're milking the popularity of Saddle Creek in the late 90s/early 2000s with their lineup this year (Desaparecidos, Cursive, The Faint)
