There is nothing bad about "guitars and drums" music, it's a genre after all. It doesn't sound more or less "all the same" as electro or hip hop or what. I noticed some time ago that if people don't like certain music, they say everything would sound alike when it certainly doesn't.

I didn't like the two Skillet songs though, haha. They just seem to lack some serious emotion. Only thing good is that they have two girls in their band, which is kind of unique.

I wouldn't say it's unique, but it is notable.

AJ I'd disagree about the "all sounds the same"; there are some bands that I can recognise immediately, whether I have heard the song before or not. The best example of this is QotSA I fink.

I've heard the "guitars + drums" thing so much I can hardly make a distinction between different songs using them unless they do something extremely unusual.


Remember that? Did you all miss that I said that? There are some original and unique "guitar/drums" songs out there. The things posted here so far are definitely not.

I mean, take Korn for example. Although all of their songs sound extremely similar to each other, they don't sound anything like any other band, even though they are just using standard rock instruments. I don't particularly like the Korn song all that much, but I have to give it some points for originality.

Almost every composer or band has a great deal of songs that do not sound very distinct from each other. It's not just because "I don't like the genre", even my favorite genres have that problem. I like guitar and drums, it's just so popular and overused that it's very hard to get excited about it anymore.

Country music, on the other hand, is certainly something I dislike enough to the point where it all sounds the same to me just because I can't pay any attention to it.

And you're definitely right, DR, Queens of the Stone Age doesn't sound similar to any other band, and they even have a great deal of songs that sound significantly different from each other. They do, however, often suffer from the malady of "making it sound different but not good". The sort of, "Art for the sake of art" that The White Stripes does instead of "Art for the sake of enjoyment". I wish people would stop doing that. That doesn't mean I don't like some of both of their songs, though.

"The Funeral" is still a great song, it really gets me thinking and like, it takes me away when listening to it, I feel something for it. It's just too beautiful

Oh yes, definitely. There are many songs of theirs I just can't listen to, on the other hand, "Make it Wit Chu" is fantastic. You once said the kind of music you listened to, but I can't remember what it was.

That song is Awesome. I'm not big into screamo bands or much of Heavy Metal just cause i dont like much screaming, if its going throughout the hole song. Every now and then is ok.Like before the chorus. but i love the sounds of the instruments. Hell i even like just instrumental songs. Half my music i have on my computer is Final fantasy and other games composed music just for the instrumentals.

I understand Completely. They all have the same sounding songs and all the guy singers sound the same.

Lol I remember Skillet's first album from back when I was in High School. It was much better than those two songs havokk posted :/

Also, when they debuted, they were a christian band.... their newer stuff definitely doesn't seem to be that way.
