Shame we don't have more Hawkwind fans.

You can count me among them.

I think punk is highly influential. However, if you think some jackass like GG Allen is worth a mention for metal then you must not be on the same page.

GG Allen is an asshole, who isn't worth a mention except as "that fucked up, insane guy who refused to get therapy".

Yeah I'm gonna go with deadsmileyface on this though, and we disagree about Sunbather entirely. Some music connects, others don't.

But it's true that GG Allin stole riffs for sure, but it's just so raw when he started doing the shaved head "I'm gonna smear shit on my body and cut my arms which sounds like I'm going to get sepsis" bit. Truth be told my favourite work of his was the compilation which included Brutality and Bloodshed for All, and his acoustic drug-addled cowboy stuff as well.

Easily my favourite album.

I like Hawkwind. No reason to validate myself like this, but I'm doing it anyways.

I don't think I've seen much Motorhead talk in this thread though. Necessary:

I think a lot of the earlier bands had plenty of punk influence though. So it's kind of a no-brainer.

Nah. I don't like anything GG Allen has done. But don't let that keep you from liking it.

Yeah I'd agree with you if it weren't for the fact that everything GG Allin has done is complete garbage.

GG Allen is just terrible. In High School I knew someone who was obsessed with him...

He's still as much as a tool shed as he was back then....I believe GG to be the cause lol

Um...so, either you think that an aspect of Norwegian culture is racist, Neo-Nazi bullshit

OR

you're incredibly ignorant.


Varg is an asshole. Plain and simple.
#414
not necessarily neo-nazi, but isn't a lot of Norwegian culture about national pride and how Norwegians are the best? kinda ties in with where Varg is coming from imo, though I know a lot of people don't like to think of nationalism and racism as similar concepts.

I don't think he's a racist, he's just aginst race mixing to preserve individual cultures.

there's nothing racist about not wanting your superior breed to be tainted by the filth of those others

Seriously though, racists should get a life. We are all of the same human race. people should stop hating one another because of their race,color,gender, ancestry,religion, and such.

Never understood the hatred between punks vs metalheads, maybe Vamps or someone could elaborate if there really was a divide. I'm too young to really know, but I grew up with punk music and moved into metal after punk. I will say I'm a big fan of The Decline of Western Civilization documentary and it's interesting to see older bands.

I don't mind punk, I'll happily check out some stuff. I listen to a couple of punk bands (but maybe not the punk people think of first, i.e. Sex Pistols or whatever).

I don't know about cinematic representation in the documentary, but it was certainly pretty cool to hear about some underground acts that never really made it anywhere, notably Catholic Discipline who sound ****ing phenomenal in my eyes, or ears.

That Germs bit is great too. Weird to think that Darby Crash (but judging by his interviews, maybe not so weird) died a year prior to the documentary being released.
