Morrison wrote tons of poetry on its own, it wasn't just in song lyrics.
@Winbot In that case, you should really love Billy Joel.
I specifically chose bands I still have to deal with frequently. There are LOTS of bands that are worse, but I don't end up hearing them on the radio or the grocery store anymore. Sure, I hate Limp Bizcut more than The Doors... but I still have to listen to The Doors.
I can tell that you get what I'm saying here. I wouldn't waste a nuke on Lincoln Park. You gotta choose bands that are still destroying lives.
He's fine I guess ... not very overplayed here. The guy sold a billion cassettes though I see them more than anyone else when I'm looking through collections.
Billy Joel is one of those guys that can write some really, really good traditional pop songs. You can't deny that. He's probably overplayed, but he's not that offensive either. I don't have much hate for him honestly, but I'm also not at all interested in listening to his music. Total Elton John territory... but I guess I think Elton is more talented.
Billy Joel strikes me as a Jew who wishes he were Italian.
That is what he is. I really like his music, though.
Night moves is one of my favorite songs of the era.
Bob Seger is a god.
I don't know why I registered billy Joel as bob seger. Unforgivable transgression brought on by the fog of no vagina for too long. Time to make some Night Moves
I'll never think of Chevy trucks without thinking of Bob Seger.
No idea who you are but you can fuck off and die, all three of those bands were great but the Pumpkins are one of the great bands of the last quarter century for sure.
This is a good question and deserves a lot of thought.
Things I would like to accomplish:
- Kill the new wave of fake art folk/white roots hipster music in the cradle by annihilating emo through a careful cull. Emo music made faggy white music a thing at a time when most white rock was NuMetal or ostensibly hard rock but actually pop with distortion, ala Nickelback.
To consider how far reaching Nickelback's music has been, virtually every Detroit black girl I surveyed cited them as their favorite 'rock' band.
Say what you want about Nickelback, a lot of their early stuff was pretty good without the cringe. Emo made it cool to be an obligate pussy, which lead, I believe, to this faggy folksy rootsy crap you hear now, which I tie to the Imagine Dragons more alternative type stuff. It's all crap and I want it gone.
-Kill hair metal. Very little of it was good and nothing good came of it as far as I can tell. Van Halen had four or five good/great songs plus Eruption. The 80's should have been dominated by new wave and a continuation of the late 70's musician's rock, ala Toto, Gerry Rafferty, stuff like that.
I'm Etz. Greetings.
The tough angle of this scenario is you only get to remove three bands, you can't just blank out entire genres or years! I thought about Nickelback but only for a second, they're too unremarkable. They're an effect of something greater, Nickelback has definitely not caused anything to happen.
Taking out Nirvana is a very solid choice, you sacrifice 1-2 "ok" rock albums and prevent the entire genre from taking hold. Without them the whole punk/grunge movement would have been delayed a few more years and would have been more metal less whining which possibly could have kept hip hop from being adopted and enabled by lower class whites in the early 90's and beyond.
Nickelback does suck, but definitely not worth wasting a nuke on. Frankly, most of the bands worth nuking are actually much more talented than Nickelback.
Nirvana isn't worth it either, because I think the Seattle scene movement might have happened anyway, and it's not like they were talentless. Personally, I'd rather nuke Pearl Jam, who has an army of boring basic bro fans even today. We could rid the world of Eddie Vedder wannabe singers too.
The grunge scene certainly would have grown no matter what but it would have done so much slower without Nirvana. They were the big celebrity representatives of it all that spawned all of the copycat bands and mudded up most of the rock scene with the blanket "alternative" genre. Nirvana itself isn't a very remarkable group either way but the consequences of their existence are massive.
I find Pearl Jam's early songs infinitely more annoying. I hate Vedder's old vocal affectations. And hard-core Pearl Jam fans are the worst, most boring douches. It's not even close to me. Plus, Kobain did the right thing and nuked himself anyway.
So you also have a "google exception" list.
Yes but the guys on my list are actually black.
