Obviously, if they're boring, then I wouldn't remember them. But here's two bands that I do remember for something other than being boring.

Deep Blue Something

Denali

Yeah, see? I forgot all about them.

Coldpay are boring, as for calling Tool boring, I can't see how you find them boring but meh, each to their own. Another boring act is David Gray, if his music was a colour, it would be grey!

What do you like? Hmm...the exact same sounding bands? Are you against creativity? You must be. Oh, and please, die soon.

Jakebert

How is Incubus creative? They sound like ever other straight-ahead rock band I've ever heard.

I admit, I do like several Coldplay and Oasis songs and the Strokes are fairly good, but they are fairly boring too. The Rakes are also too mediocre, like most new-wave "indie" bands. Yawn.

Slipknot are also very boring - the shouting doesn't bother me so much in The Subliminal Verses (alongside the odd rare song of theirs) and Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat. (the shouting in the other two albums is just fucking awful and repulsive), but it is very hard to distinguish between the songs. For me anyway.

Yatesy
12-02-2005, 02:08 PM
Haha, yeah Slipknot are stupidly boring. Their songs are really similar and hard to distinguish. As for the Incubus mention, are you nuts!? They are an original band who have manage to come up with a new sound for every album they have done.

Jakebert

My ex-girlfriend was obsessed with them, and I've heard everything they've done. Yes, each album does sound slightly different, but it's nothing new or original. I'm not saying they suck, but they arn't as original as you guys think they are.

ruroken
12-02-2005, 02:28 PM
Yeah, they are. Way different. Maybe you're just listening to wrong...or not paying enough attention...or something.
Oh well, though, I can see now that you aren't a POS. :)

I don't completely agree with the Bad Religion one. The Grey Race, No Substance, and New America were all really boring, but the 2 newest ones wern't that boring. The Empire Strikes First is a tad boring, but The Process of Belief isn't.

I'm probably the least likely person on the board to be coming to ruroken's defense it this matter because I hate Incubus. Just hate 'em. And I've often professed my hatred of them on this board. But they're not boring. And they're not unoriginal. And what they do HASN'T been done a million times before (I really liked the examples you gave to back that up, by the way). My problems with Incubus are that even though they're pretty original, what they do just doesn't work in my opinion. They try too hard to make stuff unique and wind up with a nonmusical mess. And I hate Brandon Boyd's voice and those stupid giant holes in his ears. If you're going to criticize a band, do it for the right reasons.

I don't agree with any of that. No matter how much you hate them, they aren't boring. Green Day's old stuff is more monotonous than American Idiot is. And U2 and REM are both VERY diverse bands who have expiremented in many ways over their careers. Oasis I can somewhat understand for their older stuff, but they've started moving out now.

By the way, I hate U2 and new Green Day.

Faith No More + Primus + a smidge of Mr. Bungle = Incubus. Even Brandon Boyd's singing style is a total ripoff of Mike Patton (though Patton has about 30 other singing styles that he's constantly switching between...). No, it hasn't been done a million times, but it has been done before. I love all their influences, so I should like them, but I really don't. They're alright sometimes but generally speaking they don't have the discipline required for the spaztic stuff they try for and just end up stringing a bunch of random crap together.

Hahahaha. I don't know why, but that line is really funny. That's going straight to my sig :D . No band seems really boring to me, unless i'm entertained by the stupidest/boring things. But sometimes Classical loses its touch (yes, I listen to Beethoven and other Classical music).

nieh = correct. plus i'd heard at least two dozen local bands that sound like incubus before they were plastered all over the radio. incubus was just one of the first bands with that sort of sound to "make it big" or whatever.

I agree with that post for probably the first 2 ablums when they were more Rap-rock, but now they don't really sound like that anymore. I don't ever think of Faith No More when I slap on A Crow Left Of The Murder or Morning View.

Jakebert
12-03-2005, 02:12 PM
For the kid that said Pink Floyd, seriously, stop listening to music because you know nothing about it.

As for the Incubus thing, so many bands sound almost exactly like them, so I really fail to see any real originality in them. The first time I heard Hoobastank, I thought it was a new Incubus song.

And Yatesy, how is their newer stuff more original than the older stuff? The 2 newest CD's are the most generic yet. A Crow Left of The Murder is one of the most boring albums that I've ever wasted money on. Morning View does have a few decent songs, but overall, it's just lame.

I agree, they sound a lot alike, but it doesn't prove anything about whether Incubus is original because they've been around a lot longer than Hoobastank. It was Hoobastank that ripped Incubus off.

You just basically mis-read my post. I said that their newer stuff doesn't remind me of Faith No More. They're newer stuff is different from their older stuff as I stated in my post and it is different from everything out there these days.

The newer stuff sounds a lot like crappy bands like Alien Ant Farm, Deftones (some of it, although I could see someone disagreeing with that one), Audioslave, and basically most of the non-emo "alternative" bands on the radio. And before you say those bands just ripped them off, they were doing a lot of this stuff before Incubus stopped with the rappish stuff.

This board may have the worst taste in music than any other board I've ever been to. AAF is horrible. A friend of mine burnt me their first CD like a year ago, and it was one of the lamest things I've ever heard, from the generic guitar playing, to the obnoxious vocals.

But then again, if the guys who do your announcements like them, they must be brilliant. :rolleyes:

Bands like Radiohead and Pink Floyd should at the very least be appreciated, if not thorougly enjoyed. They're got a lot of stuff going on, and some very UNboring elements amidst possible boring moments. Coldplay to a lesser extent, but I think they have a little something to offer as well.

The White Stripes? Are pretty fantastic. And most definitely not boring.

Bands that I consider really boring I'm not even familiar enough with... but generally the slow metally type stuff is pretty blah. Like when the singer is kinda whispery-screamy. And stuff that is just so dissonent that there is no element of melody left. And a lot of the newer rock bands in general (Nickleback genre).
