Top 10 Musician Opinions About Music that are Probably False
Yet Kurt Cobain wasn't as skilled as Slash was at guitar and Axl Rose has a better vocal range than him. I would also say Nirvana is more popular than Guns N' Roses are because I more often see people wearing Nirvana shirts than Guns N' Roses shirts.
Okay Kurt. Try to write songs like Sweet child o' mine, November Rain, Civil War, Welcome to the jungle and more Guns N' Roses masterpieces.
That sounds like something I would say about Drake, except I don't really think he's completely talentless.
It's an opinion. And by the way, I am more used to Nirvana than Guns N' Roses.
Another proof he's not a metal musician, he don't even know what metal is and he betrayed metal several times.
Definitely false - even the kids know this isn't a metal album.
Chill out y'all. Ozzy's known for saying dumb things. He was probably on drugs when he said this
Has he heard of metal?
If he would have said something like "Hard rock wouldn't be what it is today without Led Zeppelin", then I would gladly accept his opinion as truth.
False because metal wasn't invented by Led Zeppelin and would exist without Led Zeppelin.
Aren't they one of the pioneers though?
Led Zeppelin was mostly hard rock.
I can understand why people hated Lulu. I see the album as a Avant-Garde metal album and isn't for everyone. To be honest with you, my opinion on the album has changed positively over the years. But it's nowhere near Lou Reed's "greatest work". Nothing can beat Berlin.
Metal fans are sure this is the worst Metallica album although it wasn't exactly a Metallica album - it was a Lou Reed album ft Metallica. So either metal fans have higher criteria for good music or David Bowie's criteria were too low.
Well I'll say it's not his worst work... but the album this is up against is Metal Machine "Music" so...
I don't know why, but I feel like he was trolling when he said this.
Ignoring this quote, Morrissey is the biggest idiot on the planet. Half of his opinions are simply his ranting.
He said that in 1976 and his prediction proved wrong.
I'm sorry, who's The Smiths again?
Didn't he cover "Judy is a Punk"?
Yep, he was like most 50s parents who hate rock and roll for stupid reasons. And how is it "Brutal"? Sinatra would have called heavy metal "Brutal". Does he know if his parents hate jazz/swing music? Sometimes, that happens. Older generations hate newer music.
If Frank was still alive today, I think he would sing a different tune. He would likely find Metal more brutal and rap/pop more degenerate.
And the interesing is, he said this about the '50s rock and roll, not about the rock music itself. How is that music brutal or vicious? LOL. Don't listen what an overrated jazz elitist said about one of the most important genres ever.
I wonder what he would think of today's rap.
Well, we still have Metallica, Megadeth, System of a Down, Trivium, Led Zep, Black Sabbath (their music is still alive), Black Label Society, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, Ozzy Osbourne, the list goes on and on and on.
Dick Rowe was a Decca Records executive and told this to the Beatles' manager in 1962.
Then explain how come people still listen to their music today
I think he has partly right, but as I listened to some of his songs I rather choose the Beatles than him.
I don't know...maybe he's partly right? But most people would disagree with Van Morrison.
Their better than him
(Rivers Cuomo of Weezer)
I had no space but here is the 2nd half of the quote:
"It's like getting really drunk at a party and spilling your guts in front of everyone and feeling incredibly great and cathartic about it, and then waking up the next morning and realizing what a complete fool you made of yourself."
Why was Cuomo (probably) wrong? Because the album is considered by many to be a masterpiece.
Pinkerton was initially panned when it first released and that caused the guy to just hate everything about it. After awhile the reception warmed up tremendously and he started to appreciate it again. Gotta say it must suck to put a lot of hard work into something only for it to be blasted initially. I understand why he'd disliked it so much at first.
Again it wasn't well received back in the day but it is a masterpiece
But he likes it now
Maybe journalists liked Elvis Costello because he was writing songs that didn't fall back on party and sex themes like his music did. I like Van Halen, but it's important to remember that they were a party band in those days.
Do journalists look like Elvis Costello? I don't know. Maybe. A little bit. Or not...
Shut the hell up, Lil Trashcan. 2pac has been dead for more than 15 years yet people still remember his music. No one will remember who you are in a year or 2.
I don't know who Lil Xan is. Has he ever heard of old school? Because it is my most-listened to music on Spotify.
I know this was on the reverse list but he is wrong.
Yeah, the bros (Gallagher) are known for being very tame (sarcasm)
If he means the entirety of music, it's not even close to 70%.
This was his reaction after George Harrison quote to hip hop: "Rap music is just computerised crap. I listen to Top of the Pops and after three songs I feel like killing someone."
Full quote: "I would take it to heart if it was Lennon or McCartney, but being that it's only George Harrison, I really don't care... His talents are equivalent to a backup dancer. Third string...maybe fourth string behind Ringo."
