OT: The things that piss you off, and the music you enjoy while being pissed off.
We should follow each other on Spotify, we have similar tastes in music.
My mainstays are Built to Spill, NMH, Pavement, Guided by Voices and of course (of course!) my all time favorite band Uncle Tupelo.
I hadn't heard Defiance, Ohio before and I like.
I absolutely love Built to Spill and Pavement. I'm not a huge fan of NMH but everyone says that I should love them, maybe I'll give them another chance. Oh and I'm not on Spotify but I could probably come into the 21st century.
We are kindred spirits.
Built to Spill's live version of "Cortez the Killer" is awesome. See also: Halo Benders.
Not a big fan of Guided by Voices, but whatever.
Sucks that you hate people. I kind of like you, but I bet I wouldn't if I met you AFK. Music: I'm really getting into Macklemore, but I don't like his hit song ("Thrift Shop"). Anyone else like a specific artist but hate what is considered their "best songs"?
I love Muse but am not too fond of Madness or Supermassive Black Hole. Give me their older stuff.
Damn they have some good songs.
I love finding a band I haven't heard before that has a whole catelog of music I can dive into.
I found the Smiths late in life and it was like Christmas, just soaking in album after album. Nothing like binging on old, great music that you have just discovered for yourself.
Nice post on the Citizen Erased (my favorite Muse song) and Plugin Baby. Muse is excellent live so I figured I would add more Muse to the board. Cheers.
recent performance of a classic muse b-side
+1 for good taste
How do you feel about Knights of Cydonia? I love that song.
Great song and one of my favorite music videos of all time.
Knights of Cydonia is awesome as well. The riffs, oh the riffs!! If you get a chance to see Muse live, KOC pays for the whole ticket.
Seeing them in Concert tomorrow at the Joe...Too stoked!
when I saw them on the BH&R tour they opened with Knights of Cydonia and closed with Take a Bow. I loved that it was inverse of the album. also, they blew my fucking mind. ALWAYS see them if they're coming within a few hours and you can swing the money.
they will be in Chicago this coming Monday, March 4, I believe. I can't go as I have grad school that night but if any Chicago-area Muse fans didn't know they were coming, go and have fun.
I just picked up their latest album The 2nd Law last week, love it.
That is a GREAT song. And how can you not love the cowboy/kung-fu/outer space video?
I'm curious --
Did you like Thrift Shop at first and now you're sick of it, or did you never like it at all? I definitely have some "sick of it" situations with the hit songs of bands I like.
No, I've always disliked Thrift Shop -- would even change the radio station when it came on. Then Chantel Jennings tweeted something about how the Macklemore pandora station was awesome getting-work-done-at-a-coffeeshop music. I did thumbs down Thrift Shop once it played, though, haha.
Thrift Shop is a solid song, but it's just so damn over played. It's no where near Macklemore's best, which IMO would probably be either Wings or Otherside (Remix). I'd definitely check out some of his earlier work if you haven't yet—VS. EP, VS. Redux and Language of My World have some great tracks on them.
Thanks for the suggestion! I'll spotify those, thanks!
I would also try listening to the original verision of Otherside. I prefer that one over the remix, but they are both good. I don't think they have the original on spotify though.
I think the video is much better than the song itself. The video is amazing. But many of his other songs ("Wings" and "10,000 Hours" are my two favorites) are better.
Death Cab for Cutie has a bunch of songs that I think are superior to their radio played ones, especially old stuff. I feel like a hipster now.
I listen to Lupe when I'm pissed, generally. Or old school Eminem.
Until now, Thrift Shop was the only song I had heard from Macklemore. I thought it was stupid and never bothered to listen to anything else from him. I've now been listening to his stuff for over half an hour and am loving it.
I'm glad you had the same experience as me! Enjoy!
P.S. thanks for the sex with a rhino explanation. That one was really baffling me.
you had me at "who in here enjoys having sex with a rhino"
I'm a native Hoosier. Bandwagon fans piss me off more than just about anything... Not talking about IU fans though; they've been rabid and ridiculous through the past 10 years. I'm talking about the Indiana Pacers, baby. I'm a diehard Pacers fan. Stuck through the dark years rooting hard and pulling for them even when they kept Jim O'Brien WAY too long. Fuck all these so-called "Pacers" fans now-a-days who recently just showed their face on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Their asshatness eats my soul.
When I think of bandwagon fans, I'll listen to some pump up music and then go pump some iron. Either that or order some Chinese food.
I hear you, I grew in Indianapolis and am 35 and have been a Pacer fan since I was little, before herb williams was ballin for us. Always been a fan and always will. I don't follow the NBA as much as I did when I was younger but I am real happy we are playing great, especially without Granger. I haven't seen the bandwagon fans though. I live in Illinois now, and everyone here loves the Bulls, not me.
Music wise, I like the hardcore stuff, Jedi Mind tricks, Wu Tang. Ill Bill, Czarface, Primus.
They create great drinking songs as well.
One thing I do not enjoy is having sex with a rhino.
As for music, Hoodie Allen's new mixtape is dope.
Don't knock it till you've tried it.
Psh, go back to your side of the Diag.
Amen to Hoodie.
I just love me some white, Jewish rappers from Long Island
The only thing that really pisses me off is hearing people judge me for having sex with rhinos.
When that happens, I listen to Tchaikovsky.
I'm not judging you for sexing up Rhino's. But for listening to Tchaikovsky while doign it.
Prokofiev is the only composer I can listen to while having sex with Rhinos.
I would never listen to Tchaikovsky while having sex with rhinos. That's disgusting. I listen to Tchaikovsky when I'm upset about people judging me for having sex with rhinos. Obviously I listen to Prokofiev during the actual act.
That makes more sense.
The idea of listening to Tchaikovsky while fornicating with rhinos just seems obscene to me. However, Prokofiev music is totally fine while rhino-banging.
I'm glad that we resolved this. On my way to work this morning, I figured that rhino sex discussion probably would be a big part of the day, and I was worried that someone might misunderstand my rhino sex music preferences.
It turns out that today is going way better than I expected.
+100000000 cocktails to you guys. You took a terrible thread and made it way moar entertaining. Lub u
I prefer Shostakovich during love-making sessions involving rhinos.
COME AT ME.
Me or the rhino?
Music: I love the Avett Brothers, Decemberists, and Arcade Fire to name a few, but when I am pissed off, I tend to listen to the Dropkick Murphy's...
Stupid things that piss me off: Bandwagon fans, and Stephen A Smith/Skip Bayless
Dropkick Murphys are great when you're pissed. Good choices.
As an added bonus - it seems to piss people off when someone my age listens to DKM.
Have you checked out Frightened Rabbit before? If you like Folk/Indie then they're definitely a good band to listen to.
I like this thread. Frightened Rabbit is amazing. Their new album is excellent.
Song recommendations: Keep Yourself Warm (it's a builder), Modern Leper, Woodpile.
Edit: The band We Were Promised Jetpacks is a lot like Frightened Rabbit, and has pretty much the best name ever, so check them out if you like FR.
their Midnight Organ Fight album. I would like to see them live...
Cry about it.
Blowing 15 point leads to shitty basketball teams playing in front of about 2,000 bored fans and fucking up a B1G championship and a probable #1 seed in the NCAA tourny pisses me off. A LOT.
When that happens I enjoy listening to Chopin's Funeral March. That always cheers me up!
Preach on brotha!
people who continually throw bullshit strikes during bowling competition and as a result think they are good
This seems oddly specific.
this happened to you recently?
Only in like every league EVER. (always to some extent existent) I blame alot of it on the damn USBC for making standard league conditions much easier than they probably should be (oil layout and ball technology). But I guess it is about FUN for most people and striking is FUN...
Y'know what really grinds my gears? (Expletive to follow, America)
People who wander around public spaces with no thought whatsoever as to where they are relative to other people annoys the hell out of me. When this happens, I listen to Katy Perry. She really understands my rage, you know?
Having a Costco card is a license to drive your cart like an asshole
Im a big guy and when in a busy mall or the like, when someone stops dead in their tracks right in the main walkway thats crowded.... Fuck those people. Pick your head up asshole take a look around here and there. I usually get as a close as possible without rolling them over and just stare blankly until they get out of my way.
You know what else pisses me off? I just started playing Assasin's Creed 3, and I've learned more about the American Revolution than I ever knew before. Y U so bad at HIS TOREY 'MURIKA? I've downloaded about 13 books this past week. I'll be an expert before the year is out.
Haytham is a Templar! Muahahaha SPOILER!!!
ONly the REALLY freaky kind.
Thank you for this!
Doing in this thread.
I will say that now I think "Rhino Sex" might be replacing "Ice Cream Headaches" as my band go to name.
Maybe the former will be my hard rock band, and the latter the acoustic classic rock band the remaining members and that one replacement guy morph into in old age.
theme song of Mgoblog when things don't go our way.
What are they worryin' about today
Seems like there's a good reason
To worry worry worry
I'd sit around listening to you story
If I wasn't in such a
Hurry hurry hurry
And I'm so lonely
I just don't think I can take it anymore
And I'm so lonely
I just don't know what to do
And I'm so lonely
Feel like I'm gonna crawl away and die
And I'm so lonely
Feel like I'm gonna
Hack hack hack hack it apart
Seems like there's a good reason to be
Lonely lonely lonely
I gotta get someone or something
To make me feel less
Lonely lonely lonely
I know I could do it
I know if I wasn't so
Lonely lonely lonely
Have we got an army
We'll teach you how to act like to act like a man
Have we got an army
Man I mean to tell you we can fight
Have we got an army
And were gonna do it tonight
Do do do it tonight
Yeah they're gonna
Pay pay pay pay it tonight
Do do do it tonight
What are they worrying about today
Na you see I've learned my lessons
And I don't even want to here about your confessions
Babies that are 1 year old now and still not sleeping through the night without eating. When I'm not gritting my teeth and using all my strength not to punch a hole in a wall in a sleep-deprived rage, I hum Christmas music and rock her back to sleep. O Come All Ye Faithful, Silent Night, and the like. 60% of the time, it works every time.
I, having never parented a child, have lots and lots of advice to give you on this subject, which I am sure you will willingly and gladly accept.
F- you and your no kid having unsolicitied advice.
/still in sleep deprivation-induced rage
Benadryl is your friend big fella. Don't let anyone make your think you're a bad parent for trying it because ALL of us have resorted to it at some point during our struggles with babies who won't go to sleep....aaarrrghhh!
This could be one of the funniest things re: nighttime baby duty:
WARNING: NSFW!!!!! (Probably SFMrs.K, though)
or for you?
Sometimes it pisses me off when I forget to Neg myself.
Have Heart is my #1 pissed band. And for being a hardcore band, they're not really all that heavy.
EDIT: Also, everything following the 1:25 mark is why this band is so great.
Man for a classic hardcore band, these guys aren't so bad. I never got into Fugazi or the like.. I don't particularly like all the flailing around and being angry all the time bit myself. Thanks for sharing!
Yeah man, to be honest hardcore music isn't really my thing anymore. I used to play in a hardcore band and, although fun, the constant fights at shows and the general douchebaggery of people in "the scene" really soured it for me. I only listen to a few of my favorite bands in the genre (Have Heart, Comeback Kid, Verse) these days.
I want to be your dog by Uncle Tupelo.
A couple of things.
1.) Binge drinking as an excuse to do stupid things. Especially when that involves groping people or not understanding that they want you to leave.
2.) People claiming to be "drunk" after drinking 2 or 3 beers and then proceeding to do stupid things because they feel like they have their excuse secure.
3.) People that feel that binge drinking is the only way for them to have any fun or do anything positive in their life.
4.) People that have to dress up a particular way so that they're cool among their friends. Whether this is "emo kids" wearing black and skinny jeans or kids wearing leather jackets, slicked back hair, and dancing to twist music.. or even the whole north face + leggings + ugg boots thing. It's ridiculous and juvenile. Grow up people.
5.) "Hipsters". Guys who think they're so knowledgeable about art and music because they know about some guy named Picasso and love Neutral Milk Hotel. They only associate with people that wear leather jackets, skinny jeans, hate sports, and can dance to twist music.
6.) People that hate football and dismiss it as a "stupid game" involving "big guys hitting each other". The fact that these people are so firm in their ignorance makes me even more angry.
7.) Special music critics - People who trash bands like Brand New or Thrice and think that "rock 'n roll has died" and that "the Beatles and The Who are the best bands ever because of those three chords they always use man, not to mention those priceless lyrics man" - who actually don't have a musical background, can't read music, have never listened to or appreciated classical music, and who don't care about lyrics.
Yeah I'm a fairly angry person. When I'm angry nowadays I'm tending to listen to Thrice to calm me down (Anything after Vheissu).
EDIT - I was going to embed. But I suck at embedding and what I remembered to do for embedding didn't work.. listen to "The Arsonist" or "Yellow Belly" by Thrice.
1. Switch to plain text editor
2. Go To the last thing you typed. On the very next line add a <br> Example:
3. Go to www.youtube.com find the share button and click it.
4. Then click the embed button
5. Copy the embed code <iframe width.... on the next line after the <br>.
Thank you kindly! I forgot about the br part.
Yeah I'm a fairly angry person.
I read this, look at your user name (One Inch Woody...), and then laugh.
It pisses me off when people have no clue what's around them. High school hallways and grocery stores are terrible with this, but it pisses me off most on the ice. Some guys just keep skating right towards you or throw the puck up the boards right at you without looking (which anyone who plays hockey knows you are taught not to do).
That moment when you really want to post something, but you're not sure if it's gold or not. So, you post the comment and try to forget about it and get back to work, but you keep coming back and refreshing to see what people thought of it.
And then you listen to John Legend's "Ordinary People".
Back to work!
Always helps to soothe my angaar.
Step up by Drowning Pool
I would have to say Brand New is my favorite band.
Others that get me going when I'm pissed, System of a Down, The Punk goes Crunk CD makes me laugh, and 90s Alternative Rock station on the Pandora.
"What are the stupid things that piss you off?"
From a sports perspective, one thing I absolutely cannot stand is when people come with the "Fire X" talk, but yet present no ideas for an alternate hire that would satisfy their requirements for adequate performance (possibly because, in most cases, no such person exists). You might as well say, "I simply don't want the team to have a coach / manager".
From a work standpoint, it would have to be when people fail to make another pot of coffee after taking the last few cups. For some reason, this visibly irks me, mainly because working the newer Bunn-O-Matic is something of an adventure and I would like to avoid it whenever possible. Further, it has three burners, so you feel obligated to make at least two pots, which eats at blogging / working time.
When I am irritated, I somehow manage to find myself listening to Devo (earlier stuff). It has the right blend of humor and "people are stupid" to get my mind off whatever it was that had been bothering me.
I have no problem with those who want someone fired. They're usually making good enough money because of how popular the position is that it comes with the job. But who would you rather they get? Because if you don't have any idea, you're just spewing mental diarrhea. And you better have someone the team could actually convince to come here. Otherwise it's the equivalent of the player trade whine - "The Pistons should trade TayShaun Prince for Lebron James....come on, why wouldn't Miami go for it? We'll through in a second round pick too!"
World's greatest drinking song.
Saw them two weeks ago. Great show
Melkor and Ungoliant stealing my damn Silmarils. That's what pisses me off. Some NIN--specifically Pretty Hate Machine and Broken are good angry music.
That's the band's name? That city is about 25 miles east of where I live.
yeah but according to Wikipedia, they're from Bloomington Indiana. Still a really good band.
The event: Losing to Ohio State
The catharsis: "The Big Payback" by James Brown. JB is great blowing-off-steam music, great house cleaning music. . . .just great in general. And "Talkin' Loud and Sayin' Nothing" gets heavy rotation after any episode of Urbanspeak, Geespeak and Smithspeak.
If you ain't runnin' with us, run from us motherf*cker...
When I get good and pissed off, there's nothing like the self-titled Rage Against the Machine album, "Evil Empire," or some good ol' Don Caballero.
Fauquier County. Lovely horse farms, rolling hills, a few palatial estates - and one of the best geographical names this side of Djibouti.
is what I listen to when I need to feel better after something pisses me off, like this week's loss. Particularly their songs Faint, Bleed it Out, and One Step Closer are my favorite rage-outlet songs.
Anything OFWGKTA too I guess.
When I'm pissed off I usually listen to some Ween. And when it comes to listening to Ween while pissed off, the browner the better.
Another good (heavy) jam to get you going. This album is basically about media deception and propaganda. Comeback Kid really executed it well.
A common threat sits in our house
They keep on warning me
But I'm not always listening
And yesterday I heard the news of fire at my doorstep
But this morning they're just disputing semantics.
...Fake it, amuse me
Necessary abusing. Broadcasting…
Releasing, persuading, compliance.
That is the first Silmarillion reference I have seen on this board. Nerds unite.
Helps me be a little less pissed off than before. Not by much though.
In just about every team in the plant, there is one or more of those mouth breathing eunuchs that commandeers the radio, and insists upon cranking the classic rock or country radio station up to 75 decibels. Like the rest of the team needs to hear Dont Stop Believing or Crazy On You blasting their eardrums out for the fiftieth fucking time this week.
This shit stain has the nerve to give somebody the stink eye when the put on anything that doesn't have shitty lyrics or distorted guitars in it. Then they use homophobic or covert racial terms to describe music that doesn't fit their taste. "I can't stand all that bass and cussin!" They always say when any music bu a person of color comes on. Motherfucker,it's Marvin Gaye, not Ice Cube.
"person of color" ... am I not getting the joke/reference or was this just a really bad choice of words?
Lots of things have been pissing me off lately, this winter has been as long and bitter as was predicted, and it's not close to being over. I dont listen to music to keep me pissed, I listen to stuff to mellow me out/make me happy again.
LCD Sound System
Dan Auerbach if I really need to calm down.
All on vinyl, of course.
Dance Yrslf Clean has helped me get out a few angry funks. Good call.
I'm getting pissed off just listening to it.
Whenever I'm pissed off, I just put on "MK Ultra" by Muse, turn it up real loud, and it always calms me down. Then I play "The Call of Ktulu" and by the time it ends, I'm golden. That's kind of creepy now that I think about it...
pisses me off, especially when it's intentional and/or prideful. And I love me some early Tool when enraged; "Intolerance" is probably my favorite fuck-the-world song.
Road cyclist and hipsters.
What about me pisses you off? /Genuinely curious, don't want to be maimed or worse by PO'd driver.
As a road cyclist, drivers who don't respect my right to be on the road, and demonstrate their disrespect by not giving enough clearance as they pass (NOT saying you've ever done that) piss me off.
What pisses me off? ohio. I listen to Metallica, Tool and Disturbed when angry and wanting to feed the angAR.
I hate snot nosed kids who think they invented pachyderm sex.
