What year was the 100 Bootleg thing? I remember when Spotify started the Queen section was made up entirely of those bootlegs. Extraordinary really.

Oh, Bucsateflon Co.
We really love you, and we need you

We'd really love to believe you

But now everyone's trolling round
We gotta sort it up somehow

Oh, we said "Now go"
We said we'd like you to, because we've read you

And oh, Bucsateflon Co.
We know if you don't post then none of us do

And everything's under parr
We've gotta up our game somehow

Yeah, yeah
Queenzone's burning down
We gotta put it out somehow


Great song. Nice lyric change! :)

You forgot to mention that Bucsateflon song is dedicated to The Wizard, who apparently has earned the right to aberrate from time to time (now is one of those times), while the other must justify every syllable.
The usual queenzone multiple standards.

The guys from the attached picture are the most important band of the past 25 years, right?
Just to be sure, because I'm a little confused.

Like I said a few times before, I'm not a huge fan and find much of their output to be style over substance but I'm really struggling to think of a comparable band with the same longevity in that time frame.

Substance and longevity, that's fine. How about Threshold, Pallas, IQ, Pendragon & Arena, Marillion?
Maybe not the best bands, but at least doesn't make you ashamed to listen them.

These are all much earlier yes? And yes lots of bands going further into weird, but retaining the commercial output too?

If Radiohead was formed in 1985 then those bands are not much earlier.
But let's focus on the short and fertile period after 2000.

Threshold - Hypothetical (2001)
Threshold - Critical Mass (2002)
Threshold - Subsurface (2004)
Pallas - The Cross & The Crucible (2001)
Pallas - The Dreams of Men (2005)
IQ - The Seventh House (2000)
IQ - Dark Matter (2004)
Arena - Immortal (2000)
Arena - Contagion (2003)
Arena - Pepper's Ghost (2005)
________________________________________

Radiohead - Kid A (2000)
Radiohead - Hail to the Thief (2003)
Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory (2000)
Linkin Park - Meteora (2003)

Don't immediately see the connection between Radiohead and Linkin Park?
Both are "rock" bands in the most broadest sense of the word, which only a cool teenager can appreciate (for a short time until get bored).

If you can't stay above the line then at least don't try to reverse the musical hierarchy.
The last will be the first only in Bible, in music the last will always be the last.

I've lost interest in Radiohead in the last 10 years or so but The Bends and OK Computer are two works of art and the quality of their b-sides from 94-97 is phenomenal.

Muse are another band I kinda lost interest in but have happy memories of the Falling Down messageboard in 2000 when I became a fan. Absolution is my fave album of theirs and saw them live three times back in the day.

Not really related, but today I was surprised how many albums Ash had released since I last checked in the early 00s.

Meltdown was the last time Ash really sounded like Ash.

Yeah I think that was the last one I was aware got released. Never the greatest band of the era, but I certainly was on their side.

WTF is your problem bucsateflon? You post that Radiohead is shite or something to that effect and either everyone agrees with you or they are demented. Arguing opinions is useless so if you have nothing else to contribute to this thread get lost in space.


We should probably stop trying to reason with internet trolls in their mothers' basements.


Why were you in bucsateflon's mother's basement?

Is she hot?


What happens in the basement stays in the basement.



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

Wizard did you see my corrections to the ad libs on the Madrid '86 bootleg on the relevant thread in Announce?
