im sure there new return album will be shit
but some of there old songs were very good
blink 182 were a shitty emotional pop band. i'm glad they disbanded, the world became a bit better in general with them gone imo
i dont think nirvana should have been no.1, i really respect kurt cobain and love his music but f**k, it was just power chords!
love will tear us apart deserved the number 1 spot more than them
one by metallica shoudlve been higher, creep by radiohead shouldve been higher, bohemian rapsody by queen shouldve been higher, comfortably numb by pink floyd shouldve been higher.
and bugger me senseless if i know how rage against the machine got 2nd. they are one of my favourite bands but are they actually better than JOHN LENNON?
ahhhhh glad i've got all that off my chest
I don't love blink but Dude Ranch (album with Dammit, Apple Shampoo, Josie etc) is a f*kin great record emo or whataver you want to call it, it was just a simple melodic, funny raw album. One of the cool thing's about Dammit & Blink for me and probably allot of people that voted around my age (21) was that they kind of defined the sound of the mid - late nineties blink were huge and just about every kid who learnt guitar learnt the main Dammit riff.
And with Nirvana I reckon they deserve the number one spot for sure that song was massive and so influential and still sounds awesome to Tripple J listener's and it's been almost 20 years since it's release. Simple chord progressions are the basis of ton's of great songs take AC/DC, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones allot (not all) of their songs are just basic chords with a few fancy guitar solo's and Love will tear us a part is pretty simple aswell when you break it down it's just based around that main melody.
