    Every day, before classes, they play a song to tell us that we have until the song ends to get into class. They played Bohemian Rhapsody today. Cue half the class singing the entire thing, and continuing singing it word-for-word, at exactly the right speed, even when we couldn't actually hear the music. :D

    I'm sure they would be, but, unfortunately, they don't really tour. As far as I can tell, they've only played live three times. Twice in New York and once in Connecticut. Who knows, though; perhaps the popularity of their upcoming album will coax them out of their hole.

    Hmm, not sure "happier" is the appropriate word. I mean, there's nothing inherently happy about shoegaze. Less nihilistic maybe, but not happier.

    And off-topic: might you happen to be an Ulver fan? There's just something telling me you are, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

    Well, it's been dubbed Blackgaze and it's picking up speed in trendiness. Guess I can't complain, since I'm a fan of the sound...

    Anywho, the top two releases in the genre (and there's a fair number who I think would agree with me) are Alcest's "Écailles De Lune" and Lantlôs's ".neon".
    It began - and ends - with Pylon. Pylon stands in the doorway, beckoning me in.

    I don't really see the blackgaze thing catching on. I don't even hear much shoegazy in any of that music. Sounds like a rock ballad and a screamo song respectively. Where is my wall of fuzz with layers of reverb?

    I'm not that much of an Ulver fan these days; I used to be a big metal fan, but I've moved more into dance music, oddly enough.

    Heard a song on my local rock station the other day. Didn't catch the name of it, or who it was by. But I loved it. Both for the music and the subject matter.

    And today, I have found it.

    It's by Pop Evil, and it's called "In The Big House".

    How can anyone not be hooked on a guy who uses lyrics like 'Spina bifida footprints'. In fact, this may well be the first song to actually use the words spina bifida.

    I've been listening too a lot of dubstep recently, after being introduced to the dance crew REM0TE K0NTR0L (who, by the way, are ****ING AWESOME). It's pretty cool.

    Anyone able to give me some suggestions for more dubstep to listen too.

    Thanks, kindablue.

    Quick question for the thread: what's people's opinions on remixes and covers? At the moment one of my favourite songs is a remix of a cover of an Elton John song, which when put into words sounds really odd...

    Blackmill's Dubstep Remix of Ellie Golding's Rendition of "Your Song".

    Ellie Golding's Rendition of Elton John's "Your Song."

    Elton John's Original.

    Now, for me, I don't like the original as much as the other two. That said, each version has it's own good points.

    Zed's Dead, Burial, Benga, and Mala.

    Also, just for the sake of comparing the best and worst of the genre, here's the Skream remix of In for the Kill, by La Roux, and here's the Skrillex remix of the same. One of them is goddam awesome. The other makes me want to puncture my ears with rusty nails.

    how serendipitous...a few hours ago I was actually arguing the exact same sentiment regarding
    jeff buckley's cover of Hallelujah
    the one by Rufus Wainwright
    and the original by Leonard Coen, which basically puts me to sleep as soon as I play the record

    I'm in two minds with regards to Loverman..
    I tend to prefer Metallica's version to the original by Nick Cave& The Bad Seeds ..but that might just be because I first heard the cover, and only later heard the original rendition.
    other than these two songs and a handful more, I'm not a big fan of covers

    My cousin went from thrash and metalcore (he listened to both for five years) to blues folk just last spring. Found it really weird, especially since he was so uninterested with non-metal music for a long time.

    (I'm digging Iced Earth right now, espcially The Crucible of Man).

    I love remixes and covers when they manage to find a completely different song inside of an already great one, like this:
    David Bowie - "Bring Me The Disco King" (Original)
    David Bowie - "Bring Me The Disco King" (Danny Lohner remix)

    And, of course, the master:
    Kutiman - "Someday"
    Kutiman - "I'm New"

    The Skream remix is better, definitely. I don't mind the Skrillex remix, but it's too overstated.

    Covers are universally worse than the originals. There are two exceptions:
    Metallica - Whiskey in the Jar
    Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower

    That is all.

    Although, Sirenia's version of First We Take Manhattan was pretty... unique.

    @SotS: If you went to an American public high school and you had to sit through a bunch of musically illiterate pill-poppers telling each other how "grimy" Skrillex is, day in and day out, you'd start minding.

    With regards to covers, there are some excellent ones out there.
    Queens of the Stone Age's cover of White Wedding by Billy Idol
    Sleep's cover of Snowblind, by Sabbath
    Fu Manchu's cover of Godzilla by Blue Oyster Cult
    Et cetera...

    Saying the originals are always the best when compared to covers is kind of silly.

    A good example is Mad World. I personally prefer the original, but that puts me into the minority. The version used in Donnie Darko is WAY more popular.

    I prefer Dylan's original version of All Along The Watchtower to Hendrix', and Michael Hedges' cover to both. Put together.

    My problem with Skrillex lies in things like this. It starts off with a decent dance song, if a bit generic, and it's obvious that he has an ear for melody.

    THEN THE DROP WUBWUBWUBWUBWUB.

    And then I'm done with the song because that is awful.

    Oh, he absolutely has an ear for melody. I'd love to hear Skrillex sit down in front of an acoustic piano or something.
    Also, apparently he chainsmokes while playing live. I maintain that, if you're DJing a genre with as much room for improvisation as dubstep and you have the free time to light up while preforming, you're not DJing hard enough.

    Myself, I am definitely a metal guy. I do listen to various other 'genres' of music--classic rock, punk, jazz, blues--but mostly metal, from classic metal pioneers such as Judas Priest and Motörhead to the more extreme styles such as Death and Gallhammer.
