    "Creep" is the epitomy of teen angst in music. But in a good way :)
    No, that'd be Smells Like Teen Spirit.

    Creep is one of Radiohead's worst songs.

    And it's "epitome".




  • so any of today's teens into MGMT?

    cos they jsut remind me of being young and free and stuff. which i still am, to a degree, but, y'no, i gotta work for a living, and im living with my fella, and regard his teenage son as being of a different generation.

    Creep's not at all a bad song. It's in fact one of their best songs. It's very 'obvious' but that's hardly their fault. Radiohead have a mixed relationship with it (see 'My Iron Lung') but then, that's all part of the same process - you create an iconic song, and people will define you by it. People are still happily trotting out the whole 'Radiohead are depressing' line on the basis of Creep and a handful of other songs from their early catalogue.

    Smells Like Teen Spirit is even more ubiquitous and overplayed. I still love it. It's also the sound of selling out, commercialism and betraying your roots, but fúck it, it's a great song. ^^

    You're not much older than me are ya? ^^

    MGMT are horrendously overrated. They're a decent bad, with a lot of potential and some quality choons, but a whole rake of fake scenester types seem to have co-opted them.

    One of those bands that like the Ting Tings were kinda cool as a 'best band you've never heard of' but once they made the mainstream got overexposed. Familiarity breeds contempt and all that.

    i) A good suggestion, but I don't like the way you just dismissed my opinion outright.

    ii) Opinion > fact. It's certainly one of their most over-played songs, but I wouldn't consider it too far below the standards of "Karma Police", "Street Spirit", etc.

    iii) I am aware of how to spell "epitome", but thanks for going to the effort to point out my error. I was under the impression that everyone is entitled to a mistake now and then...

    See I don't get that view of music. If I like a sing I like song. They are over hyped but so are many bands these days.

  • scatbox, ill reply to your post when i can listen to teh vidjos you've posted...

    depends, how old are ya? :P

    agh, i've done so much in the last few years, i tend to feel a bit older than my years, doesnt help my fella is 19 years my senior (in the space of a month, he'll celebrate his 40th and ill celebrate my 21st!) and has a kid older than my own sister.

    which is the advantage of never listneign to radio, and not knowing other people in general. you miss out on the whole 'over-rated/overplayed' thing, and get to just enjoy the band in itself. dont have a radio in the house, and have only one music station, which i rarely watch (due to it being mainly cack, and stops playing music around about the time i get home from work).

    I don;'t necessarily share it myself, but I think it's possible to overindulge. I know a few people who've 'binged' on bands and don't like them anymore. They listened to them obsessively and then lost interest.

    I do think that some songs can get a lil annoying if you like it but don't love it, if you follow me?

    I'm an ancient and cynical 21. ;)

    I go out a lot, I've not been out frequently for hte past couple of months because of college, but usually I'd be out 3 or 4 nights a week minimum. So you end up overhearing stuff like MGMT.

    Plus, they're 'cool.' The two lads are pretty funky dudes from New Yawk, and people lap taht kind of stuff up. In the way electroclash or however you describe the Klaxons et al led to a whole wave of people dancing about in 80s clothes wearing glowsticks for a summer. (Ah the wet and merry summer of 07, how I miss you. :pac:) That always means a band gets overwhelming attention, and a whole attendant crowd.

    I walked by the MGMT gigs in the Ambassador and asked a couple of kids who was playing and when I found out asked how long they'd be listening to them. Not long. :pac:




  • Lets see, Alice in Chains , Pearl Jam, nirvana, silverchair, bush, slayer, rage against the machine, soundgarden, therapy?. Generally music that was big at the time, while I was in school.
    Wasn't really pushed about music until I finished school.

    If you can read this, you're too close!

    ha, older than me, so. ive only been out for live bands all the last year, with the exception of possibly tomorrow night, as long as ive been in nz. back in ireland though, my haunt was fibbers, so mgmt wasnt exactly pushed in my face then either. think my fella just heard it on C4 (kiwi mtv) one day, (fated to pretend), went 'hang on, that's a gud'n'... got his hands on the cd, and i fell in love. quite enjoyed hearing it in the final of 'skins' too.

    ive kinda always been out of the loop as to what bands are cool, etc, my mates at school werent even vaguely into the same music as me, and my mates outside school had a varied enough influence so that my music collection has embarassing elements no matter who's looking at it :P

    right now (like, this present moment), im feeling a whole tonne of love for Grinderman, and The Doors, and The Smiths... grooves were just done better back in teh day.

    I understand but I think if you overindulge in anything that will happen.But that is no what I am saying , I don't listen to radio during the day so I miss all the repeated music hype . I listen to music I like and don't care for the hype.

    Definitely can happen. Goo Goo Dolls - Iris is such a song for me. Thought it was pleasant the first time I heard it. Then my best friend started dating someone, he played it about 100 times a day!! And because I heard it so much, don't like the song at all now.

    Fibbers is full of emos upstairs. :P

    I'd usually be in Fibbers, Doyles, Dorans, Pravda, Pod or places like that.

    Some of my friends are maddeningly into music. The kind who spend their evenings talking about who the best guitarist ever was. Think High Fidelity levels of lameness. Others are into dance etc, so I end up with a more rounded taste than I intended. :pac:

    I like the Smiths, the Doors are good, in fact great, but I only like them rather than love them. I always feel sorry for Jimbo and his dad though.

    Ya see when ya go out and stuff you've no choice. :P

    ANd I watch a fair whack of MTV 2. ^^

  • With all the talk of MGMT here (Im a huge fan), I thought Id throw up two songs that you might not be familiar with that are not on the album they realeased here - and probably 2 of their best songs.
