It's completely subjective depending on the person.

IMO, a band that retains their technical skill while still writing interesting and catchy music.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

Dear Bach, I wrote but you still aint answerin'
I left my courier, my adress, and my home chariot at the bottom
I sent two letters back in autumn, you must not-a got em
There probably was a problem at the courier office or somethin
Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot em
But anyways; fuck it, whats been up?hows your daughters?

Fuckin' Cathedral City cheddar. Honestly, its the creamiest most delicous cheese I've ever tasted. Goes well when its slapped nice and comfy between two soft as shit pieces of white bread. Mmmmmmm.


Oh... you meant bands.

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

Anything that sounds pleasing to my ears. Usually something with good lyrics, melody, or is just plain creative. I don't give a crap about technical skill in music to be honest.

Also to answer what's good today, there are a lot of good underground folk punk, pop punk, and hardcore bands. There is actually just a lot of good underground music from most genres.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

Pffft screw this.

She's sweet on Wagner
I think she'd die for Beethoven
She loves the way Puccini lays down a tune
And Verdi's always creeping from her room

ELO FTW!

What makes a band good THESE DAYS?
Same as in any other collection of days. As long as they sound good aren't too pompous, they're good.


What, you mean like The Darkness? =P

I like a bit of difference with a bit familiarity.. and I like a bit of screaming..

I love Enter shikari though so thats probably why. and The beatles- woot!!
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

Sounding good.
I think all rock/metal/punk bands should be exciting and good to listen to more than anything.
#28
heavens basement
they sound familiar
did they support bon jovi on last UK tour they di?
im pretty sure my gf said something to this effect
silly bonjovi fan girl

sounding original in at least some small way, creativity and breaking the mould, technical ability, meaningful lyrics/generally good songwriting.

They did!! I saw 'em!

To be honest they were better than Bon Jovi!

Jedit: They're like a mix 'tween AC/DC and Motley Crue. They're awesome!!

Innovation, good lyrics, emotion/passion, and sounding nice in my ears.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Any band/artist who is simply willing to be themselves. I know that's cheesy haha, but really you can do so much if you aren't afraid of gaining no approval by anyone but yourself. That's when it really gets good.
We're only strays.
