This week Zack “the Tang” Zeit discusses the band “HIM”. Although they were kind of an early 2000’s flash in the pan, we look at whether they actually made an impact, or if they should just stay where we left them.
There’s no question that Radiohead is one of the most influential bands of the 90’s, and debatably of all time. The truly had their own sound and there has never been anyone like them since. The care deeply about their art but the question we ask is, what is art when its no longer relatable to an audience? What happens when you start getting so experimental that people no longer identify with your music? Did they get too weird after OK Computer? We’ll see…
The Counting Crows have always been a group that everyone knew about, but weren’t so influential that you felt you really had to know them. Typically written off as just another useless top 40 group, if that’s all you think of the Counting Crows you’re really missing out.
Through the years, Incubus has drastically changed their sound while still never falling out of relevance. Could it be the loss of key members or the inclusion of new members whose influence was drastically different? or is it just that they could never be happy playing the same style too long? We discuss this and much more this week.
Pat Benatar isn’t the only female rockstar, but in the 80’s she definitely made it feel that way. She had tons of hit songs and was even a large influence to us. We wanted to know, did she write them? and how much credit can actually be given to her as an artist? See what we think…
This week is all Alice in Chains, easily the most underrated grunge band in the Seattle scene. They were even nicknamed “Kindergarden” as a way to call them a baby Soundgarden, we don’t think that’s right. The media got it backwards and if it was up to us Alice in Chains would have been at the forefront of the entire scene.
There is no denying that when Nirvana first hit the mainstream they changed everything. What we’re discussing is why were they so big? Did they deserve the god like status they have achieved? and were they really that much better than the rest of the Seattle grunge scene at the time?
Madonna has been highly influential for the past 4 decades. Ever changing, her work has influenced a wide variety of artists. We discuss how she’s influenced us, if she is overrated, underrated, or if she ever should have been a big deal in the first place.
In this episode we let you know about who we are and what inspired us to start this band in the first place. Make sure to stay till the end for our song of the week, Because the Night.
