Defining the sound of the band before it starts is never a good idea.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Just write the music. Whatever genre it happens to be will be the genre that it is.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

If you don't like the music you write, just write more. It's half experience, and half confidence. A happy song to you may be a sad song to others. It's all in the ear of the listener.

Before you get a band together you can't say your going to be this and that. You will be forcing yourself and other members to be writing something which isn't natural to you and it won't work as well.

Best tip ever. Go with the flow.

Just read and practise alot of ADTR music and similar artists and it will filter out into your own music.

I understand what you're saying. You, personally, cannot write the music you want to write. We all have this problem here to some degree. The best thing to do is analyze the music you want to write and then practice.
i don't know why i feel so dry

That works too. Other people are a great source of inspiration.
