Uriah Heep. I may have heard a track of theirs when going to school, but not a whole album.


Also: The Pussycat Dolls, Liberty X, The Sugababes (sic), All Saints and basically any artificially constructed group of plastic wannabes with fake tans, tits and teeth, and that includes New Kids On The Schlock and Westlife.


I've never been interested in pursuing the sounds of Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, any incarnation of Rainbow, Foreigner, Journey, Cheap Trick, Kansas, Rush, Sad Cafe or any group greatly obsessed with gatefold sleeves and laser etched discs.


A year spent cleaning the underside of my eyelid with rusty barbed wire and battery acid seems preferable, to be honest.

please define:

Band you heard the name thereof several times, but never actually listened (or at most listened just one hit but don't know their general work)

OR

Band you see mentioned as well-known by other posters/fans, but you neve even heard their name before?


limiting to the abovementioned
____
know the name, never listened a single song:
Styx
Rainbow
Black Sabbath
Foreigner
Cheap Trick
Uriah Heep (and judging from wiki they should have been my time and genre too!)


UB40 instead I knew the name welll, finally listened to one album once (I could not manage to endure it all the way, actually) and decided it was enough of them for the rest of my life


never heard about before this thread
The Pussycat Dolls
Liberty X
The Sugababes
Sad Cafe
amongst many others in this forum

Everybody who owns a radio knows Foreigner. It's one of the main reasons to set the radio on fire

I own a radio but never listen to it.
Last time I switched it on was to listen to a Milan champions league match they didn't air for free on TV, 3 or 4 years ago.

In the last couple of years I also bought 4 or 5 CDs it didn't even unwrap yet, they're still on the shelf in their cellophane...

I also don't have iPod or any of those modern miniature music thingies everybody listens to in the subway. I prefer to bring a book in my jacket pocket, but then I never read it, I'm too tired or lazy.

You must have heard "I wanna know what love is" by foriegner?

MoSe
14-08-2007, 11:53:22
No, I think I heard "I wanna know what love is" by "a band I don't know and I don't want to"

I never realized there actually was any point in this thread. Oh well.

Funko

Funnily enough, the song "I wanna know what Love is" came about after a discussion very similar to the one in this thread about the band Love (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_(band))

C.G.B. Spender

If I her "Foreigner" I have to make gagging noises combine with the finger-iin-the mouth gesture.

And I think "Journey", "Toto" and "Styx" are the same musicians playing under a different name.

All those bands make Supertramp and Status Quo look like gods.

Even the 80s Status Quo and Supertramp. Even the 90s 80s Status Quo imposter bands.

Even german teenage rap bands using 90s 80s Status Quo imposter bands samples.

Especially the later Status Quo stuff is great. It has reached a point when music is no longer music, but a mere transcending sound, almost like lawnmowers too early in the morning. Or like incects in a can. Endless boogie

And I like it, I like it, I like it, I like it
I li-li-like it, li-li-like
Here we go, rockin' all over the world

And I like it, I like it, I like it, I like it
I li-li-like it, li-li-like
Here we go, rockin' all over the world

And I like it, I like it, I like it, I like it

The lyrics are so profound though.

C.G.B. Spender
15-08-2007, 09:14:48
I always use the lyrics as example for eloquence.
You also have to do the typical Status Quo 3-guitarists-in-a-row hip swing to visualize it.

C.G.B. Spender
15-08-2007, 09:19:15
Oh, and by the way:

Apollo 440 were accused of using a Status Quo sample in "can't stop the rock". The band refuted this, saying that it was a riff that they had recorded themselves, although it is very much in the style of Status Quo.

And I like it, I like it, I like it, I like it
I li-li-like it, li-li-like
Here we go, rockin' all over the world
