Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I am breaking up the band because that is what Jack White does

    The only time I hear the radio is when I unplug my ipod to pick out different music

    My radio is set to some Mexican merengue/cumbia/salsa station

    So it is basically all awesome

    there's only one band on that list that I've heard and liked

    I wish there was something catered to my closed-minded tastes :P

    It better be the Black Keys

    Gorillaz

    but I haven't heard the keys

    listen to their most recent album

    you'll love it

    i did, and now i'm listening to their entire back catalog

    The Black Keys are fantastic and it is sad to me that they are only now gaining popularity.

    I just wish people would stop calling stuff with a few electric guitars in it "rock".

    That's like saying Jack Black is "metal".

    I would like to pause for a moment, to talk about my penis.

    I first heard the Black Keys sometime last year when Last.fm played them on a Tom Waits station for me

    I don't remember exactly when it was, but it was definitely before Zombieland came out

    now I have all of their albums, they are so fantastic

    I think about modern music less in terms of genres and more... I guess emotional response?

    Rainbow in the Dark is my favorite right now

    In a way I'm kind of happy that he died because I wouldn't have known about him without the mourning thread

    At best I can just tolerate the White Stripes.

    Kings of Leon are like the shittiest band in their neighborhood of the Pandora map who have inexplicably became the most famous and successful.

    Hey Soul Sister reached the point where it made me violently ill about five months before it started appearing on commercials.

    That concludes this list of things discussed in this thread that I feel like commenting on because Nickelback is beneath comment.

    Except "rock" is about the most general term for any genre of anything.

    I wouldn't say it's shitty sounding but their change in producer was definitely a downgrade.

    The week he died I went to karaoke and me and my roommate were gonna do Holy Diver in his honor but my friend bailed so we didn't

    Good thing too because this other guy did Rainbow in the Dark and I swear to god it was like Dio's soul was singing through this dude's body

    It was fucking incredible

    They become important when they're attached to a certain subculture. Which pop music inherently isn't, so terms like pop-rock are a paradox.

    I recently watched A Headbangers Journey and the guy did two interviews with Dio. He seemed like a really awesome person in general, which makes his death even more sad. :?

    you just have to find a good radio station

    I found a station around here that plays all sorts of stuff. Decemberists, White Stripes, Mumford & Sons, Gorillaz, Black Keys, Broken Social Scene, Broken Bells, etc. Best radio station I've ever heard.

    We only just got a radio station like this this year. Literally the first time I've heard the Black Keys on the radio.

    A good point but The Beatles and Led Zep had their own memorable style, both musically and look-wise.

    Then you've got, for example, Metalcore where every band looks (and sounds) exactly the same because it's popular and why do things differently when samey shit gets you $$$?
