Are you one of those assholes who stands there with his arms crossed and gets pissed whenever someone bumps into him? I'm sorry, but if going nuts during my favorite songs and pumping my fist and screaming every word makes me an dipshit, then so be it.

Here's my thing. I kinda do have a bias against punk. I was watching the 21st Century feature on Iron Maiden and NWOBHM and somebody on there expressed his distate for punk because he felt it was completely anti-musical. And I mean, I'm trying to get myself to enjoy punk and all, but that guy did have a point. I mean if I'm not mistaken, punk made up for lack of musical ability with attitude, which is commendable, but you can only get so far with attitude.

Seconded. But I did feel bad when the one of the guys behind me at Maiden this past October told me to watch my arms cuz I was almost hitting his girlfriend in the face

Musical ability doesn't just only mean playing dazzling guitar solos or 10 minute songs with 3 different time signatures. Sometimes it means great fucking songwriting, and writing with passion and soul. If it only takes 3 chords to do that, then why not? I'm not even going to bother pointing out that there are TONS of punk bands who know how to play the shit out of their instruments.

Well, there is a difference between nudging someone accidentally and almost wrecking their friends face.

Here's a great quote by David Thorpe, who writes the "Your Band Sucks" column on Something Awful.com:

Quote:
Prog-rock is an elaborate, terrified denial of the fundamental rock and roll fact that no matter how virtuosic and sophisticated a band gets, some junior-high dropout could step up with a guitar with four broken strings and play a song with enough soul to blow them out of the water forever.

Well, yea, it means playing you're instrument well and performing well.

I don't mean to sound like an ass, but for future reference, I'd like to know who those bands are (especially after hearing Johnny Ramone say stuff like he never pracitced guitar because he was afraid he would hurt their sound).

David Thorpe. Now there's someone who should be skinned alive. And if hating his guts means I have no sense of humor about music, then fuck sense of humor!
