the dude from MCR. i think his name is ray toro...he can ****ing rip but his band blows hard

Yea...I had MTV on because I had been watching Jackass, and they had a new video on. I was too lazy to change it, so I watched. The whole band was terrible...but the solo...I was like WTF? It was actually decent...wish I remembered the name of the song.

Its like someone joined the band, wrote this, and left.
This so song is so different from their other stuff.

Oh, yeah, topic.

Hmm...

I think the guitarists out of Trivium are good, just don't like the music.

Eh i agree with the mcr, but dream theater and RHCP are awesome in my opinon. This reminds me of a concert, there was the lead singer from dashboard confessional (1st opening act i don't like them at all) and he had a solo band and my god they sucked beyond my ability to describe them. I felt sorry for the bassist though he was tryin so hard to rock out but everyone else sucked so bad...

Yeah, I jammed with him once (we have a mutual friend) he's not what you'd consider good but he's definitely good by pop punk standards.

I like how you have to justify watching tv. Are you that worried people will make fun of you that you need to give your reasons why you watched?

Kiedis practically talks into the mic, hardly a great singer in my opinion. And you used the wrong tense of "you're." Learn grammar before calling someone a dumbass. On topic, I agree with Ray Toro, and I'll add Joe Perry. The guy's amazing but I can't seem to get into Aerosmith as a whole.

Yes. Definately yes. and i think you mean Wes Borland. Wes Montgomery died probably before most of the members of limp bizkit where even born.

Thing is, he can actually shred, only the kind of music he plays doesn't require that.
