Top 10 Musician Opinions About Music that are Probably False
The Top Ten
Any member of Guns N Roses is far more talented than Kurt Cobain ever was. - RiverVibeZ
Sorry Kurt, but Axl is a much better singer than you and Slash is a far better guitarist. Just cause ya didn't like em didn't mean you had to call them "untalented" or "crap people".
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. - christangrant
First, Guns N' Roses was more popular at the time. Second, Cobain's major talent was songwriting, which he was a true master at. - Sop
I'll also bring up that Nirvana actually had the chance to tour with Guns N' Roses and Metallica and be the opening band but kurt refused and then said this quote for what reason I have no idea, so Guns N' Roses had Faith No More as a opening act instead (a much better band if you ask me) - christangrant
Chill out y'all. Ozzy's known for saying dumb things. He was probably on drugs when he said this
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.
AC/DC isn’t even metal.
I don't know why, but I feel like he was trolling when he said this. - RiverVibeZ
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. - Mumbizz01
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. - Metal_Treasure
Well I'll say it's not his worst work... but the album this is up against is Metal Machine "Music" so... - christangrant
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. - Gg2000
Has he ever heard of Deep Purple? - Userguy44
False because metal wasn't invented by Led Zeppelin and would exist without Led Zeppelin. - Metal_Treasure
So what? Some metal artists were influenced by Pink Floyd...jazz... - Metal_Treasure
Ignoring this quote, Morrissey is the biggest idiot on the planet. Half of his opinions are simply his ranting. - Swellow
He said that in 1976 and his prediction proved wrong. - Metal_Treasure
It goes for Smiths' music LOL
Big mouth strikes again
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. - Metal_Treasure
At the time Rock n Roll was called "Satanic". - Metal_Treasure
I wonder what he would think of today's rap. - RiverVibeZ
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.
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. - MattAffterburner
Dick Rowe was a Decca Records executive and told this to the Beatles' manager in 1962. - Metal_Treasure
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. - cjWriter1997
Again it wasn't well received back in the day but it is a masterpiece
(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. - Metal_Treasure
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. - Gg2000
Do journalists look like Elvis Costello? I don't know. Maybe. A little bit. Or not... - Metal_Treasure
Yeah, the bros (Gallagher) are known for being very tame (sarcasm) - Metal_Treasure
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. - RiverVibeZ
Lil Xan it's even boring than my tinny pennis lol
I know this was on the reverse list but he is wrong. - Powell
