I went and thought Shinedown stole the show. Saliva on the other hand was really dissapointing.

My neighbor the "ole-professor" went .. Retired college professor looking guy with a joint in one hand and a glass of wine in the other ... He probably was the guy wanting to spend the night with ya because he's too tight to rent a motel room ...

Didn't go, but those were two of the bands I wanted to see. Shinedown is great, and would have loved to see them live. What happened with Saliva? And how did Trapt sound?

Trapt chevelle always sound decent partly because they have like an hour to play so they play the ones they have played a million times and get off before they get tired and **** up shinedown is always sweet Stone temple pilots sounded awesome. I wonder if it is because wieland voice doesn't seem like can ever blow out no matter how much he sings or does drugs. It was a nice night out there that is for sure I had a great time other than the fact i hate people and there were 50,000 of them.

The lead singer of Saliva was just off on most of the songs. And on their last one, he walked off of the stage about a third of the way into it.

yup, saliva sucked. Shinedown did quite well, and STP impressed me. I've never been much of an STP fan, but I enjoyed it.

I'll upload some pics later in the week if I get around to it.

well bands like nickleback, saliva, shinedown, three doors down, etc. are absolutely dreadful. they make me want to shove me finger through my eyeball and swirl it around.

the bands that i like are not instantly accessible to people who like the before-mentioned "music".

here are a couple of bands i like that are a little more accessible and that just may help you down the road to having an actual good taste in music.

MUSE and Billy Talent

these bands rock. and their live shows are absolutely SICK.

give em a listen

While I totally agree with you (100%), people that listen to Shinedown & Nickelback more than likely won't get Muse (or Billy Talent).

It's like asking Miley Cyrus lovers to listen to Todd Rundgren.

eh, if Muse ever did become popular he would call them sell outs and hate them too.

Since he likes to generalize, it's only fair...

Saliva sucked balls. Shinedown was good, considering I don't like them at all.

STP was f*cking amazing. We managed to get right in front of the stage for that one.

The crowd was insane, by the end of the second song it tunred into huge domino walls of people falling all over eachother. I could picture the 10 o'clock news reporting a massive riot/trampling or some sh!t. Chicks were freaking, and people were getting the hell out of there. But Scott told everyone to calm down, and the rest of the show was a lot more managable.

Plus we were right next to three chicks on top of guys shoulders, topless, making out and grabbing eachother's titties. I love rock.

Since he likes to generalize, it's only fair...Muse already are fairly popular.

I suppose rehashing Radiohead is doing wonders for them. And although that isn't an entirely true statement, I just get too strong of a Thom Yorke/Radiohead vibe when I hear any Muse song.

And Radiohead>>>>>>>>>Muse.


I didn't go to Rockfest, but the only band I would have really been interested in seeing would have been STP. That would have been pretty nice.

I went and had a pretty good time. I didn't think an extra 10k people would be such a big deal but wow, that was a mass of humanity. I think they should cap it at 40k. I had a lot more fun last year. If I didn't get back stage to these things I probably wouldn't go. Guess I'm just getting old.

muse is amazing! seen them 4 times and radiohead once. muse puts on the best show. would also like to note that muse has been more consisitent in quality of music than radiohead. every muse album shows progression from theone before. id highly recommend viewing their 07wembley performance. one of the most amazing shows.

there is a show coming up in lawrence at the jackpot featuring jesse lacey from the band brand new. he is doing a solo tour at small venues and I can absolutely guarantee you it will be an incredible evening.

the crwod surfers got kindof annoying. I spent half the show glancing behind me to make sure one of those assholes weren't about to kick me in the head.

they were also getting thrown into the chicks on guys' shoulders. one of them got knocked off and apparently got knocked unconscious. too bad, she had a nice rack.

MUSE is pretty popular. they were a headliner at Austin City Limits Music Festival and they had a song on guitar hero III.

but you're right. i am partially a music snob. i tend to lose a little bit of interest if a band becomes "huge". example: snow patrol. i
was a big snow patrol fan four years ago, and then they started playing their songs on shows like The Hills and Grey's Anatomy. i still like their music, i just don't rave about it like i used to.

however, i reserve the term "sellout" for crap bands that deserve it, like Green Day.

your attitude is just as bad as loving pop. you decide it's only good music because it's not popular?

Hey spatula, napoleon called, said he wants his complex back.

Calling green day sell outs is pathetic. Not for one moment did they sell out. They were a 3 piece punk band that got bigger than they could have ever imagined. Their sound changed but at some point people grow up and hopefully you can hear that in their music. to be a 3 piece punk band and be relevant for 20 years is incredible. you talked about being a music snob but snow patrol? make sure to check out linkin park for buts2 ROFL!!!

I know that is a pretty consistent trait with some music people, it just always surprises me with which way might have to go when there is an "I told you so" moment, versus the "Sellout" internal conflict. I saw the same thing in Omaha when 311 finally broke out as well.

I like crap music, and I'm okay with it. Some crap I do, a lot I don't. Of course I don't spend a lot of time hunting down new music, nor do I really have the time to. Though Muse's whole waaalaaaaalaaaa ahhhh really did make me want to slap him around for a bit, lol. The music was pretty complex, which was cool, but the other thing I just couldn't get past. Maybe if they were heavier.

checkout the songs assassin, stockholm sydrome, muscle museum, glorious, darkshines, just listen to more than the radio songs. they have songs all across the spectrum in many different styles. they do a great cover of house of the rising sun by the animals

uhhhh, a napolean complex has to do with being short. not sure if you're insinuating that or what.

but i'm sorry, once you start wearing mascara and swooping your hair over one eye you can pretty much f*ck off in my book. american idiot was horrible. i would compare it to a roller coaster. it may appear dangerous, but in reality its really safe and family friendly.
