I need money, I gott buy Pablo Honey.


The only track off of Pablo Honey that I like is Creep (which the album has two versions, so its okay).


I don't really like Pablo Honey. Creep is so overplayed.


Creep is/was so overplayed that even Radiohead won't play it anymore. LMFAO, it was one of those teen angst songs and people would go to shows just to see them play Creep.

Meanwhile, I have to buy Pablo Honey so I'll have all of Radiohead's CDs...I have a burned copy of Amnesia that my brother gave me...When I get the money I'll buy a real copy of that.

I thought Pablo Honey was amazing. I loved "Stop Whispering" "Ripcord" and "I Can't"

I like Anyone Can Play Guitar.

And my brother lemme borrow this weird single of My Iron Lung, but it's got a bunch of other songs on it, including an accoustic version of Creep, and it's fucking AMAZING. In my opinion, anyway.

Oasis has not evolved as a band. Their songs sound exactly the same as when they first started. Radiohead is the most scizophrenic band out there - they can master anything they try their hands at.

I think Oasis has evolved .. have you ever seen that documentary on them, their biography .. it was a bit funny but sad too .. anyway I think their music has varied on each cd .. but if you don't like them you're not going to appreciate it .. just like I can't stand Radiohead and I think all their music sounds the same .. Radiohead is just too mellow and depressing to me .. BUT I do like Travis and Travis has been compared to Radiohead many times ..

I don't like Oasis. The songs sound alright, but the guys are jerks. They don't get along, they get drunk all the time, etc...

Plus, they call themselves the "greatest band in the world". I hate all bands that say that, whether they're just kidding around or not (take Tenacious D, for example. The songs are alright [even though they steal riffs from other songs], but Jack Black is a jerk. He's funny as hell, but a jerk.)

Mike Turner is not.
Jeremy Taggart is not.
Duncan Coutts is not.
Raine Maida is not.
(as far as I know) Steve Mazur is not.

:mrgreen:

There are some nice ones too. Chris Carrabba from Dashboard Confessional and Steve from OLP are two of the nicest guys I've ever met.

Well sometimes I think Raine has a bit of an asshole streak in him :lol:
Or maybe moody is a better word ..

Yeah, he's moody. But I think everyone has the right to be moody when you're in the spotlight 24/7.

I can't believe that Oasis is even winning this. They are so full of themselves. Anways, I'm sooo Radiohead, as evidenced by the label thingie. Although their newer stuff is a little strange I still really appreciate it and The Bends and Ok Computer are two of my favorite all time albums, especially OK Computer.

I don't think just cuz a band is full of themselves that they can't make good music .. which they do .. Oasis were HUGE when they first came out and they still are .. go Oasis! :mrgreen:

True, but I don't really like their music either. It's funny, when they first came out I really loved their stuff, and then I got sick of them. They started to sound like a rip off to me, like they were just copying other bands' sound(The Beatles). I dunno how they slipped away from me.

I hate that comparison .. I don't think Oasis is like the Beatles at all .. other than being British .. people just stick them in the same category cuz they're both British rock bands ..

I think it's cause you can really hear their accent. A lot of British bands sing and you don't even notice they are from Britain because you can't hear their accent. Oasis' couldn't be any more obvious, much like the Beatles' were.

I hate Radiohead's music, but the band members are ok (e.g. their ideas and all).
I hate Noel and Liam, but I like their music.

So, Muse all the way.
