    I gaurantee you've heard Black off their first cd, cause like it was played so very much. Also you've probably heard Enemy off Seasons. Damn now that's a good band.

    plays all year on tour, supposedly one of the best live bands out there.. and they haven't sold out.

    sorry, gotta rep what I believe in.

    typical statement of somebody who doesn't know any better.

    the majority of hip hop lyrics are uncreative, with unoriginal song concepts, over computerized music.

    if you have some type of ear for music, some sort of sense of humor, an understanding of similies and metaphors, rapping is not the complicated process that some of the fags on this site make it out to be.

    don't make assumptions about rock based on the linkin park, blink 182 or avril lavinge cds you own. rock lyrics get much deeper than that commercialized, bubble gum bullshit you hear on the radio.

    any great rock lyricist could just as easily write a decent rap verse. they just choose to express more abstract ideas and incorporate more creativity into their music.

    but I know that I'm speaking amongst the deaf. so, yea.

    btw, being a great rap lyricist is something that is honed.

    being creative and truly artistic is something that you are born with or without.

    i listened to real hip hop for a good 6 or 7 years.

    sadly, i was a backpacker for awhile.

    i regret those days, and am thankful that I rediscovered real music.

    I dunno, i tend to lean more to radio friendly rock... I cant really get into the HEAVY screaming, or the unpolished underground stuff it just doesnt sound good to my ear. So i cant really comment on this. But i do think Rob Zombie has great fucking concepts for songs.
