Settle a bet for me. My roommate was asking me the other day why my favorite band was the Chili Peppers. I explained to him how they were one of the first bands to have a big effect on me, etc. He tells me that he doesn't get that, because the Chili Peppers are nothing revolutionary or anything. His favorite bands are like Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and the Rolling Stones, bands that have undoubtedly changed rock music for the better. He can't get it through his head why my favorite bands would not be bands that changed the world, even though I do like those kinds of bands, they just aren't my favorites. I tell him that's one of the most pretentious things I've ever head. Yes?
Listen to my songs, but only if you are prepared for the greatest experience of your life .

If he's asking you to justify a musical preference, he doesn't understand music.

what's the point in being "philiosophical"?

Interesting question...

You're both being equally pretentious.


I fail to see how TS is being pretentious at all.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

They had a major effect on you, regardless of their influence on music as a whole. You cannot debate how you feel about that, how is that even an argument?

if this is a bet, how much money do you have bet on this?
"The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted."

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

The Chilli Peppers introduced a cross-over between funk/jazz/punk/rock, how aren't they influencial?


Exactly
He is both retarded and pretentious.
I'm really annoyed with those people stuck on old bands and speak like if music reached perfection in the 70s and then just got worse afterwards.
#22
Do I agree with him completely? No. (Though I do like his "revolutionary bands"). But would I call him pretentious? No.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and class less and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

It's not exactly pretentious, but it's close-minded, yeah
Signatureless. And this doesn't count. Because I said so.

he listens to the rolling stones so he's lame and probably 87 and going to die soon so whatever bro
#38
At the end of the day (or let's better say album/song) the only thing that matters is:
Did the artist/band create any emotion inside of you?

That's the only thing that counts. When discussing artist, sure, it can be a plus if these people were very influental.
But the only thing that matters for YOU is if YOU like the music. If the RHCP make you get crazy like Flea, well good for you!

Undeniably the best response here.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

The Rolling Stones weren't revolutionary, they were just a white English blues band with the right image that became mega famous, blues had been going around for quite a long time before they appeared on the scene.

Yes, your friend is being very pretentious. It's called a personal preference, and what music you like and why you like it is nobodys damn business but your own.
