Ok, here we go, I'm probably gonna be flamed for this.

Why is everyone saying Everclear is the best band EVER? I personally don't think so... OOO look, i'm talking against everclear! Oh no! But really, in all reality, I still like them, but they aren't the best ever. I agree with whoever said the Beatles, what about the other guys who started the whole rock 'n' roll scene? Classic bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, The Who, and all that good stuff? And less than jake?? yeah right..--- sorry if im offending... but gimme a break.

Everclear is my personal favorite because they were the first real band I liked. I don't know what the greatest band ever would be.

They'll never be a difinitive answer because all art is subjective. I love Everclear to bits but there's a difference between your favourite band and the "best" band. In the grand scheme of things Everclear will have very little impact on music history. Dylan, The Beatles, Robert Johnson, Woodie Guthrie, Pixies, Velvet Underground, Big Star, Ray Charles; these guys changed the world.

NIRVANA

i don't think nirvana was the most talented band ever, but certainly the most creative and artistic. i love their sound. certainly revolutionary. i know, i'm some stupid nirvana fan who should shut his mouth, but i have one more thing to say: Pearl jam eats it.

That's quite generous. I'd give them up to 1972. There was some reasonable stuff in the late 70's, but for me it ended with Exile On Main Street. '68 - '72 the Stones were untouchable.

Now they're just a bunch of crusty parodies of their former selves. Sad really.

Everclear and Aerosmith

Aerosmith puts on a great live performance. I'm still in awe.

OMG!! That's Everclear right?!? lololol

Vaughan is right. You all would be listening to Hank Williams III if it wasn't for John, George, Paul & Ringo.


I'd say here there is a distinction between 'greatest' and 'favourite'. My favourite band is the Afghan Whigs, but they never broke the mainstream or put much of a dent in the music industry (except for legendary status among knowledgible critics).

In terms of greatness, I'd pick the Beatles over the Afghan Whigs through sheer accomplishment alone.

Did Hank Williams get round to having any children?

I mean, he was only 28 or something when he died.

But seriously, I'd say here there is a distinction between 'greatest' and 'favourite'. My favourite band is the Afghan Whigs, but they never broke the mainstream or put much of a dent in the music industry (except for legendary status among knowledgible critics).

Are you the chap from Nottingham? Anyway, everyone should listen to this man; 1965 is an awesome album, and should be owned by one and all.

Heh, that's me. That obvious, eh?

Used to hang on the ECO boards but the hollywood and vine isn't much substitute so I thought I'd get into the loop here.

Have you ever heard of Obi? They're the support band for the Twilight Singers UK tour? My mate claims that they're good, but he likes Guns n Roses, so I don't believe him.

I might sort out my tickets at lunch.
