    I have just discovered WhiteChapel. Now I always figured they were some old school hair band as the name reminds me of Cathedral I think.

    Nothing could be further from the truth. Deathcore with awesome riffs and some great leads/solo's. Listening to their last 2 albums and they are just technical power from start to finish Very Happy

    I gave that a go - just couldnt get into it. It was hard enough as a white kid from middle class australia who gets sick smoking weed to relate to Dr Dre, its much harder to relate now that hes a tech billionaire. But I got NWA for free with it and that is a classic.

    You get into Smith St Band? Libertines? Royal Blood? Calling All Cars? My bogan mates love those bands and their latest albums are all pretty good.

    Haha. My dad bought me an Oakland Raiders jacket when he went on a trip to the states, for no other reason then they seemed like a popular team, because everyone was wearing their merch. A 7 or 8 year me almost got invested in Oakland because Ice Cube repped them and my dad thought he was a style icon I should emulate.

    Really? Its so bland and copy/paste though... Every song sounds like Justin Timberlake doing a Drake impression. I feel like its an album people are loving because they are told how good it is and form an opinion before they listen to it. I dont rate it at all. It keeps coming up in the shuffle of my "recently added" playlist and keeps getting skipped after 15seconds.

    I guess im in the "hate" camp. haha.

    It's one of those albums I'll throw on when I'm cleaning the house, I won't be listening but it's still on. I was middle class white kid who dyed his hair blonde when Eminem was big. Looking back at the photos now is such an embarrassment. Just shocking decision making.

    The 90's/early 00's were not a good time for anybody, fashion wise. Tragic.

    Lol  A new LOL emoticon thanks to Random today I would say Very Happy

    My 16 year old daughter has got into a heap of 90's bands over the last 6 months.  Thought it was a phase at first but she is still going strong, which makes me proud Very Happy .  As opposed to her older sister who listens to today's chart shit-she has been a disappointment pretty much her whole life that one though...

    Anyway, I digress.  We were watching YouTube on the big TV the other day now that I can do that with my new xboxone Very Happy  and I showed her the clip for Even Flow and she was like "what the hell is Eddie Vedder wearing!!!" .  I explained to her that pretty much all of us alternative folk back then wore a flanny, shorts, white socks and basketball shoes in those days.  Double cringe when I told her we wore that 365 days of the year-"but, but, Dad, that's too hot for Summer and not warm enough for winter". Me "I know sweetheart, I know". Embarassed

    Wonder if blink182 will translate to future teens aswell as it did when I was a teenager. Something to look forward to, brainwash a bunch of little un's into my 90s/00s/10s music.

    My uncle had the same conversation with his 14 year old, who thought he was really cool and edgy before he saw a photo of his dad as a kid wearing converse and ripped jeans. Not so groundbreaking any more.
