What idiot put Nirvana on this list. They're grunge, end of story. Anyway REM is awesome, 'enough said.
I like listen to the music since their first album if your're feeling sinister.
My favourite songs are: me and the major, I'm waking up to us...
They are perhaps the most industrial of all industrial bands, in the true sense of the term. Blixa Bargeld is a smart and clever, accomplished artist. He's done many other genres, is a movie director, and has contributed to the success of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, another legendary post-punk rock band. If you don't know E. Be. You should probably give a try. - n00w
Way too underrated
Mr. Cave's voice is so dark and intense! And I absolutely love their controversial album, Murder Ballads! :D
Lots of people will say they're goth but they just consider themselves as a mainstream alternative rock band. And what rock band! I can't quote one song that they have done bad. Everything is ranked from good to excellent. - n00wV 1 Comment
Quoting them as one of the main initiators of the "Industrial" genre isn't giving enough credit to this legendary band. They invented sampling, they even pushed the boundaries of their creativity to implement James Brown's soul music into pieces that are still avant garde compared to what we usually hear today. Richard H. Kirk has always been a true visionary. - n00w
