    Music

    Hey! Music is cool, right? What does Twins Daily listen to?

    Me? I'm completely stuck in the 90s. If there is band with ties to Mark Lanegan, you can be sure I'm listening.

    So, yeah. Music.

    There's no way I can listen to "Hit or Miss" without thinking of the Southern Comfort commercial

    The commercial kicks ass. When I listen to the song, I imagine I'm that guy.

    Lot of 90's myself. I can't get over Rolling Stone when they rolled out the best songs ever by decade how low the 90's were. It must be a generation thing. I also like new Dupstep, new alternative rock like Chevelle, Lil Wayne, Drake is alright... I am a fan of new artists that actually put something into their work. I've trended away... far away from country music. I just can't listen to the garbage they play. Some new stuff is good, but I think I've just become too high strung to enjoy *someone complaining about their life*.

    There seems to be a lot of disdain toward the 90s due to Grunge. I think the original Seattle bands are great. A lot of the rock bands that came after them were pretty awful, and I think the lines have been blurred over time.

    Smerf, there's plenty of good country, but the problem is that they don't seem to like to play that. I went to Zac Brown Band at Target Center in November, and that was among the top 5 or so best concerts I've ever seen.

    I'm a huge fan of music, and I have over 8500 mp3s and 400+ CDs of all different genres. I was a vocal performance minor in college, so I have a high appreciation for music. That said, I'm a big fan of Christian music, working as security for Sonshine Festival in Willmar every summer. I've had the chance to meet a lot of great artists there and enjoy a ton of great bands.

    I appreciate the talent. Can't get past the fact that it sounds like listening to someone sing underwater. With marbles in their mouth. With severe facial swelling. Wish I could get past that because when I read their lyrics and imagine it to the music, I think they'd be pretty awesome.

    Most definitely. Can't beat two days at Alpine Valley, over 60 songs with one repeat, and a Temple of the Dog reunion.

    That sounds like a you problem. It's not for everyone.

    Ben, I don't hate against all country music. Zac Brown is pretty good. Problem is with what they play on the stations. I'd listen to it a lot more if they played better music.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Yeah, would never knock their talent. I just don't know what Vedder has against coherency.

    My problem with Pearl Jam is that they don't demonstrate much musical and vocal diversity--they seem to exploit the same kind of brooding guitars and vocals throughout all their hits--though sometimes their poignancy is undeniable. While I like the sound, beyond Pearl Jam's lyrics (and even then...), I don't necessarily find them particularly artistic.

    Pearl Jam just has nothing on Nirvana, imo.
