    I just like it cause it's peppy.

    And there's definitely worse music they could play between matches.

    I'm not a fan of kpop either. Pop in general is rarely my thing; too much of it ends up being about personality rather than the actual music.

    I dunno, I watch most tournaments, and it's pretty much the worst music I hear regularly. DreamHack seems to use like modern rock, which I am down with (they used Chevelle's entire Hats Off to the Bull one tournament, and that was awesome). NASL and IPL use dubstep, which I am fine with, since I mix dubstep and drum and bass as a DJ (or did, when I was younger). Day9 uses Blue Sky, Black Death.

    Nope, really kpop is the worst of the filler musics I hear in SC2 tournaments.

    And of course my opinion is always fact (tm).

    I think most people in this thread like Kpop more as a joke than actually enjoying it, Seguer aside.

    I dislike kpop as much as the rock they play at gsl and some other tournaments


    I think dreamhack starts tonight (or early tomorrow) but I'm not completely sure.

    Well, GSL plays really horrible Korean power rock...so yeah. It's like Kpop rock style.

    Dreamhack uses good rock music.

    starts tommorow, at 11 cest/5 edt/2pdt

    also yeah

    two group stages (ro.64 and ro.32) + championship bracket is a looooot of games

    i think the last dh open event was 2 days and seemed to work out well however so

  • Options
    VariableVariable Mouth Congress Stroke Me Lady FameRegistered User regular
    oh I'm sure they've got it all planned out

    both group stages are round robin BO3 as well, not even just bo1. I guess like one group stage one day, then the second and the championship brackets the second day... I mean, there's gonna be a lot of great starcraft to watch so no complaints it's just surprising.

    also this just in, stephano to take entire tournament

    GSL isn't even korean power rock. Its just terrible American rock.

    Although I think the GSL music has been getting slowly but steadily better over the last few seasons. They've stopped just picking random songs, it feels like, and started trying to be vaguely thematic about it. The map intro music is decent, and the jazzy stuff they play during a break is pretty good.

    There are a couple of Kpop songs I think are pretty good, but on the whole its a pretty boring genre. Korean music to me feels pretty formulaic and repetitive. DnB and House and Dubstep do feel a lot more appropriate for a starcraft tournament. Its what I like to listen to when playing.

    No, some of it is definitely Korean power rock. Sure there is bad American rock...but a lot of it is Korean power rock. Very occasionally they play an American rock song from a band some of us have actually heard of, and would consider good...that's rare.

    That is pretty rad. Looks like the 75th Anniversary of him writing there just passed. Did they do anything special for it? That partnership ended up being pretty big for both sides.

    Edit: Nevermind, 75 years since the BPA opened. 71 since he wrote.

    Modern or classic? I'll go with modern because it's what I listen to most:

    Tool, Rage Against the Machine, A Perfect Circle, System of a Down, Chevelle, Deftones

    That's just from glancing at my iPhone. I would consider those "top tier" American modern rock bands.

    e: And this relates to SC2 because we've heard all of these bands played as filler music between matches!

    All great bands, but those are all 90's bands.

    None of them are 90's bands, unless you count Tool. The rest are all post 2000, post grunge. Even Tool has released more of it's albums in the 2000's than the 90's. Their break out hit came out in 2001 (Aenima).

    Tool put out an album in 2006 (and 2001, and '96...), is working on a new one, and I've seen them 3 times in the past 5 years...not really a 90's band xD

    gsl plays music that sounds like Nickeblack which, I don't care where it comes from, sounds like shit. either it's american music trying to sound like them or korean. either way I hate it.

    dubstep/D&B is at least usually not offensive even if it's not my favorite music.

    the euro tournaments have, overall, had the best music imo. discounting TLO's epic stream music and stephano's classic rock.

    Meh. Well, they are good bands regardless. I wouldn't mind hearing them between breaks. But their music might be a little too preachy or moody for tournaments. I'm guessing tournament organizers are probably looking for lighter stuff. Hence Kpop.

    Yeah, I have the little 75th anniversary key chain thingy. Yes, we had a little party thing.

    I have no idea if we'll celebrate 75 years of Roll On Columbia, but I would guess we would, since Woody is mentioned EVERYWHERE around here. Literally everywhere. Half the artwork in this building has to do with his music somehow.

    Aenima was '96. Lateralus was 2001, then 10,000 Days in 2006. Undertow came out in '93. So they're like, half and half, but are also actively working on a new album? Iunno. I'd love to see GSL/every tournament ever use Tool as their between games music.

    I think my least favorite is actually MLG's shitty generic nu-metal.

    On the 2 year anniversary GSL show they played a "Best of" medley of the songs from the past 2 years throughout the broadcast. It pretty great. Its just that GSL music is very hit and miss, and when they miss, boy do they miss.

    Hmm, could have sworn Aenima was 2001, but I just checked wikipedia, you're right. I guess I think of it because that's the year I discovered it, and the band, and became a huge fan.

    I have since seen them six times live, once at the Crystal Ballroom in Houston with only 4500 people in attendance. Yes, it was as awesome as it sounds.

    I'll agree, especially bands like Rage and System, are too preachy and political. Can you imagine Bulls on Parade being okay with a tournaments sponsors? I can't, at least not if they know what it's about.

    e: Or Pocket Full of Shells, or Prison Sex, or Chop Sui.

    Plus in theory you have to pay to be able to play most music at events like that. I feel like SC2 tournies are not at a stage yet where they can shell out for major record label artists.

    Then you see Dreamhack uhh, Spring I think? Using Chevelle's Hat's Off to the Bull as the entire weekends soundtrack...so either they just did it illegal, or they paid good money for the rights to the entire album.
