See those are all artists I know. I'm not talking about genres here - it's okay to not delve into a genre if you really can't stand the aesthetics, for example (though some genrewhores would argue with me, well, rather HAVE argued with me, good times). I'm talking about constantly finding something new that improves on the old. I for one refuse to believe that the apex of musical development was reached in the 70s. I think it hasn't been reached at all.

Oh, I forgot to add my actual point re: this thread. Don't post stuff that other people know. Post something that you're fairly certain that if you brought it up in a conversation with random people, the name would only result in blank expressions in their eyes. Challenge people's tastes with the freakiest shit you can. If at least one person listens to that link you give and thinks: "yeah, this is some good stuff right here, maybe I should look into it", then it'll be worth it.

I'll have to agree with BayernLove on the Sales/Fanbase point, for reasons he and Quaazi listed. (Mainstream music being made up of marketed sound, shitty artists being incredibly successful etc.)Now on the Offspring, I wouldn't say that they're part of the greatest bands of all time. Not because they're bad or anything, it's just that it's hard to see things as they really are when they're so close ( Time-wise, that is, and yes, the late 90s are close music wise, don't go all "OMAGAWD CALL ME MAYBE IS SO LAST SUMMER" on me). I bet nobody considered Zeppelin the best band of ALL-TIME back in the 70s. Best band in the world is more probable, but still a little iffy. I'm not saying Assef's wrong, I myself am not exactly fond of the offspring, I'm just saying that you need a bigger timeframe to be able to give such a judgement. 30 years from now, the Offspring could be considered a groundbreaking band( God Forbid), but right now is too early to tell.

Ugh, Opeth. Can one get any more pretentious?

Though I do like this piece, even if the whole "scary" part felt overdone.

I guess that boils down to the type of person I am, one who is very fond of the past and would much rather explore it than the present.
Regarding not posting known stuff, that's pretty hard on a varied forum like this. In everyday life, however, people do get freaked out.

Thing is about The Offspring, I don't know if I'd normally consider them amazing, but in my eyes they are AT LEAST a very good band.
Why I said they're amazing is because at the moment, I'm on an Offspring high, and I don't feel like coming down just yet.
Anyway...

I'm an abosolute Muse fanatic, and this has to be one of their best songs, along with Bliss.

Listen to Origin of Symmetry, that is the REAL Muse sound, the newer songs (The 2nd Law album) are a bit of "mixing it up" and has a few too many influences for my taste, but it's also decent.

Pure epicness, the satire in this song - how the beat contrasts the lyrics perfectly.
It has a strong, true meaning, and it's been stuck in my head for the past few days.
