Whew!
It's like a weight has been lifted off of me.
Thanks.

I mean, quite frankly, I can't stand them. I hated them in the 90s I hate them still. I don't understand their popularity. It must be "the punk rock it's okay to like". I mean... Does anybody else remember when they tried to conduct all of their interviews with fake British accents? And the lead singer, he looks just like a character from the cartoon SpongeBob Square pants. And not one of the main characters either, but one of the no-name fish characters that doesn't really have much purpose. And "American Idiot" on Broadway?!? Composers have poured their heart and soul, their blood and sinew, their very life force into works that have gone on Broadway and "American idiot" is out there with them?! No way, man. Not cool. Rolling Stone called it "a global knockout" what?!? Who's salad got tossed for that review? Other reviews at best were "mixed". What.... The Fuck? Where is our culture? Our integrity? Come on, Americans, demand better! Fuck Green Day!

Personally I recommend Fuzzy Death Machine, but then I'm biased.

I know what you mean, though for me it's Nirvana. It's not just their music it's that when you imagine Jamie Oliver singing with Kurt Cobain's voice then you can never again not hear the down syndrome.

Is Green Day a great band? No.  But they've got a few songs I really like.  

Nirvana on the other hand... Nirvana is the band everyone liked when they were twelve because it was the cool band, and I feel like everyone realizes the band is **** but they keep saying they like it because everyone else is saying that even though eveyone else secretly hates it too.  The only thing good that came out of Nirvana was the Foo Fighters, and they've had a few rocky stretches along the way temselves.

If I could have picked one '90s punk band to get a Broadway show, it would have been the Offspring.  But only if the show were based on something from their first three albums.

I liked Nirvana better than the Foo Fighters and I still do.  I know they weren't as technically accomplished and I don't care.  Not that I don't like the Foo Fighters.  But the first FF album is still my favorite; back when they were still shaking off the vestiges of grunge.

Plus one for evil_d there - Offspring were braintape from old times for me.  I could go on at length about how I got into the Pixies off the back of them, and how I got laid listening to the first couple of Foo Fighters albums, but... let's leave that out...

Bar Boulevard of Broken Dreams, and a few other tracks, I'm not a big fan of Green Day or any of the other pop-punk lot.  But I found Stripcreator to be a great place to listen to , and discover, old and new bands; I try not to rule anything out.

At least we have the time to listen to you whine.

I'm in the "I liked some of their old hits" category when it comes to Green Day. I think it's pretty cool they've held up for so long.

I have this great idea for a cover band. We're going to do punk covers of Green Day songs.

Nobody should get a broadway show until someone finally does Mad Max: The Musical

Funny. I've never really cared for them, either.

Nirvana was good, though. Amazing how they went from the throbbing gristle of Bleach to the fuzzy sheen of Nevermind. Poor Kurt couldn't handle it all, though.

At least Dave Grohl is still around acting like some Rock Ambassador -- not a terrible thing if I made it sound that way. I didn't have much use for the Foos after The Colour and the Shape, but Dave redeemed himself by doing the Sound City thing and pushing for Rush to get into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame (which he shouldn't have had to do, but that's another paragraph or three).

Never cared much for The Offspring, either. But I like Cake.

Pixies deserve their own paragraph, too. They eventually went for the Pop crossover with Trompe Le Monde, but damn if they didn't sound good doing it. I love that record. They had already moved in that direction with Bossanova, anyway.

Since this seems like the thread for it, can I get an amen for my opinion that Hamilton is not good hip-hop?  It never stops sounding like it's designed for social studies teachers to play to get their students "jazzed" about America's "OGs".  And if that is what you need, I wouldn't throw out that 1776 videocassette just yet.

Thank you!  It seems like everybody likes it and I can't figure out why.  I feel like the kid in The Emperor's New Clothes.

I imagine it was pitched like this:

 

"It's learning, but we'll put it to a hiphop beat.  People won't even notice they're getting their minds freaked!"

It has "hip hop"? I just thought it was an overbearing musical about Alexander Hamilton. Now it sounds even worse than I suspected.

And I'm not anti-Broadway. I've seen Phantom, Les Mis, Oklahoma!, Sound of Music, The Mikado and Cats to name a few.

Cats is complete crap, BTW; I couldn't wait for that **** to be over, and I like cats.

Meh, Hamilton is still better than any given Lil Jon song. I realize it's not a high bar, but there you have it.

I'm also willing to grade on the curve since this is Lin-Manuel Miranda's first attempt at a rap musical, a genre which itself doesn't have a whole lot of examples (TBH I can't think of any other rap musicals). Hopefully its flaws will serve to inspire another artist to do better.
