The only bands mentioned in this thread that I have actually heard of are Black Sabbth and Greatful and Back STreet Boys.:shock:

i am still trying to figure out if this is a generational thing :?

I wouldn't have thought it's generationalizationismable, I think it's just a matter of what people happen to come across in their life, and also what they take notice of and what they're interested in. It's not like Back Street Boys are connected in any way with Black Sabbath apart from that they both start with 'B'. An anagram of Back Street Boys is: Soy Becket Brats. Think about that. And Black Sabbath is: Th' Lab Sab Back ... ... ...

OH NO! Poor Thin Thin Flat Him is gonna be stuck on an island with only country music.


Yeah, I'll probably be off by myself so nobody else will have to hear :D

Just kidding. Actually I'd probably listen to some of the local music there and support the local scene.

What you don't want is me singing. I'm in the top 1% worst singers in the World. I'm terrible. :P

I don't think it's generational, we are about the same age and I have heard of all but one of the bands mentioned. :?

Hard to believe though that Black Sabbath started almost 40 years ago! :shock:

Maybe if you hook up your coconut showerhead you'll improve the singing quality ? :wink:

Did Black Sabbath really just start when the band started writing music? Or did it start when they were BORN? Or did it start when awesomeness was invented, which was in 89,401 B.C. Think about it, do the maths

no, richard, I am not doing any math! there!

music. i have to learn to build a coconut cd player first. that's going to be a challenge. i think i'll bring a beatles anthology. that way i can get my fill of sappy pop songs and some politic songs mixed in with some hardcore "i am totally high and off my rocker" songs. And then maybe I can land on an island where someone has some rage against the machine. that would really be great because then I would have to worry about building a cd player and I could use my cds to reflect the sun and build a fire or something.

:roll:

sorry, i'm talking and i can't shut up!

Does it have to be a band, specifically? I like a lot of bands, but I couldn't live without Beethoven. I could hum or sing everyone else (has horrible mental image of singing Dazed and Confused at the top of his lungs), but the Ode to Joy is a little too complicated for that. :)

I'm with you, veganmadre, The Beatles. I can't think of another band that has such a wide variety of sounds... except maybe Paul Anka.
