    Default Rage = Only Reason To Go To Coachella

    Just like Tool last year, Coachella provides very few (but compelling) reasons for someone from Northern California to trek down to that Conservative dustbowl. But, dammit, it's Rage Against the Machine! Bjork and RHCP are other good reasons but 95% of the rest of those bands suck. What do those indie kids see in them?

    Rage should tear it up. Can't wait to see them in NORTHERN California.

    Wow. I never thought other Rage fans would make me dislike Rage. This really sucks. I used to really like Rage Against the Machine, but I just can't now.

    I've never understood not liking a band because of their fans.

    Maybe it's not that. Maybe it's people going "Rage is the best band in the world" and going on about how they're going to riot. Sure, riots are fun, but I want to see a show for the performers, not for the audience being stupid.

    It could be worse. This 5% talent, 95% poser band fest could be held in a Red State.

    At 33, can I still be considered an "indie kid"? If not, how do I fit into your equation? Please elaborate. I desire to be stereotyped.

    Nothing "indie"/independent about most "indie" bands today. Most are a far cry from true "indie" bands like Pavement. They are pretty mainstream and dull, with not much talent or much to say. Rage Against the Machine at least has something to say and are freakin' talented.

    Why would I want to listen to an "indie" band whine on about nonsense while strumming a boring straight 4/4 tempo over and over again while wearing the latest "indie" fashion? That's what is wrong with most music - it's more style over substance.

    If you're into that, cool for you. I'm not. Enjoy!

    Well, a few bands from Touch and Go Records are gonna be there. Like !!! and Blonde Redhead. I don't even know if the record label has much of an impact. I'm sure there are bands that play indie music that aren't even signed to an indie label. Is that still indie or is indie a musical style too?

    Rage is mainstream pop music and their politics are rather far from reality. Get a life.

    Yeah, that's what irks me now about them. Their label just discredits them a bit. I don't know if I can accept the excuse about wanting to appeal to a wider audience. The wider audience doesn't seem as if they care about the issues they raise.

    pop = popular music

    in the 80s Motley Crue was pop
    in the 90s Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Rage were pop
    in the late 90s NSync, Britney and Backstreet Boys were pop

    deal with the term

    I've heard enough to figure out I don't want to hear more. And, FYI, I do like bands like Build to Spill, Modest Mouse, Hella!, Flaming Lips, Pavement but not bands like the White Stripes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, and Belle and Sebastian. There IS a difference.

    Like I said, if you're into those other crap bands, cool. Just my opinion. All I'm saying, is that I tend to agree with Rage's guitarist when he said:

    "A good song should make you wanna tap your feet and get with your girl. A great song should destroy cops and set fire to the suburbs. Iím only interested in writing great songs." Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine

    Most of the bands at Coachella either make me want to tap my foot, fall asleep or punch their sorry-unoriginal-poser faces. I guess the last one isn't that bad. But bands like Rage make me want to take it out more on our government (more than I already do).

    Life is too short to waste my money on some little indie band who is in it to get chicks and fit in to their faux-"indie" band while being delusionally unorginal and trendy.

    Isn't choice great?

    I love Rage...but that's just a dumb statement. If music can move you emotionally in some way. It's great music...for whoever's feeling it. If for whatever reason Sexyback made someone cry...good or bad, it's a great song for them. Any song that can make someone feel something...that's great.
