I've seen him do that at APC shows, or how he hides in the back, I've seen too many "theories" on that, so I don't know what exactly that is.

And I don't think anyone in this thread suggested they would want that... and for the record, I'm just bored and should really be asleep - I couldn't personally give a crap if you like something I don't; I like stuff you hate; etc. I'm just messing with you because I agreed with the other guy that (what I've seen of) their live show is (imo) a load of bollocks

Face paint/costumes/stage names.

Pyrotechnics in live shows.

Whiny vocals.

Flashy guitar solos that add nothing to the actual mood or purpose of the song and just seem to be there because hey you need a guitar solo.

Sweep picking.

Most keys/synth.

This new shitty trend where white people try to play pop-reggae songs. Die in a ****ing fire, please.

Bringing an instrument in at the very end of a song, like violin or piano.

Probably, and it doesn't help when the band loves sending out tons of different information just for confusing their fans.

I mean, I'm all for sitting idly and watching a band play their music, but it's pretty cool (to me and a select few, it seems) to watch something that complex be delivered in such a way. It fits the music.

I don't know, I should probably be asleep too.

I know and I've heard interesting stuff in an unusual time signature, but sometimes I feel like it's purpose is to have an unusual time signature just to be different and...gimmicky.

Like, it's not like the composer came up with a melody they liked, and then they thought "Huh, this happens to be in 11/8," rather than "I want to do some music that does a whole bunch of time signature changes and shit."

More about the odd time signature thing; I was listening to YES on a 2 hour drive yesterday, and I love that band. They'll use odd time signatures and polyrhythm sometimes (although not as much as a band like Dream Theater), and there were parts where I couldn't help but think "Yeah, that was in an unusual time signature, but if they took out the last beat or just made it 4/4, it'd make more sense and be just as good." There were times where they would finish a cadence, and there'd be an extra unnecessary beat, or it cut off when there should have been an extra beat, and it just sounded...off. If they sticked with normal time signatures it'd be just as good.

See, I've always been interested in odd time sigs. Listening to Jambi by Tool right now actually, and I just love the polyrhythms and time signature changes.
But I totally see where you are coming from, where it seems the odd time signature was added after the riff/melody was made, just to look 'smart'.

Soundgarden pull it off wonderfully.

What are your opinions on the 3rd Wave Ska stuff in the early-mid 90's? Like DHC, Aquabats, Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake....?
