Yeah, so I got in an arguement with this kid I know. Him and I have very different opinions about music I like classic rock and all that good stuff, and he's into the newer stuff that I generally find terrible like FOB, Panic! etc.

And I was talking to him about cover songs and stuff and about like there have been few covers that I liked better than the original blah blah blah. And he says that Fall Out Boy should do a cover of Stairway. I looked at him blankly for a second, waiting for him to say that he's kidding and I waited another second and another and another but still nothing. He was fucking serious.

What should I do to this boy to teach him that that song can never be covered by another band let alone Fall Out Boy and sound any good?

You're coming across as an elitist.

That's bad.

But still, I was having my own opinion on music. How come no one noticed that?

So no-one should ever cover Stairway?

Thank f*ck for that, it's an overrated piece of sh*t song as it is (IMO)

But hey, looks like Rodrigo y Gabriela covered it already. Go be elitist at him too.

What a pointless argument.


Eh, we got bored. I'm still friends with the kid and all I didn't take it too far. But I was interested in wondering what the Pit thought of it.

Tell him Fall Out Boy should cover Megadeth's Rust In Peace instead. We can all get a laugh out of that one.

your a retard TS
listen to the stairway to heaven cover by Rodrigo y Gabriela, id listen to that over the zeppelin version anyday, simply because it has amazing guitar and no robert plant wailing depressingly *flameshield*
FOB do suck in my opinion, but you have to realise that what you think is not necessarily always right. Im guessing your a 12-15 year who's being playing for roughly three years and thinks they know everything about music because they can play the intros to stairway and sweet child 'o' mine. get over yourself

Nah, don't those people above me. Your first instincts were right: you should probably kill him, or at least send him to the ER.

Yeah. Thats definitely the wisest course of action.

shove your guitar down his throat? Or just deal with it, somebody needs to do a good cover of stairway, FOB would do a sucky one but who cares?

Fall Out Boy fails.

But so does Led Zeppelin. But I dont give a **** if you like them. The very fact that you think you have to DO SOMETHING TO HIM FOR HIS MUSICAL OPINON means if I knew you I would actually kick the **** out of you. You fail.

you should print off every comment on UG flaming Panic! and FOB! With the insane amount of hate comments, it'll show him how horrible his taste in music is.

having an opinion on music isn't bad as long as you realize that other people have their own opinions, and to confront them just because they aren't the same as yours is pointless and stupid.

Because you posted a topic about what you should do to him. Most people you'll meet have bad taste in music. They listen to pop and think it has value and depth. Just say he's gay and move on from the subject. Almost everybody registered to this forum is going to tell you Led Zeppelin is better.
mmmmmmhmmm

That's exactly what I've been trying to say.
