    the beatles are so great because they pushed the boundaries of pop music to its limit and they (almost entirely by themselves) were a revolution in the music industry. i am not their biggest fan or anything but god damn if you can't appreciate what they did for music you are probably dull. the only other bands i can compare to them are king crimson and pink floyd

    I think my favorite band is CCR, I don't think I could say that for certain though. As far as newer bands go I'm pretty into The Killers, The Strokes, and Vampire Weekend. Linkin Park is okay, they have some good songs but nothing spectacular IMO. The Beatles are definitely a wonderful band with some great music. Not quite my favorite but I could listen to em all day

    King Crimson were great, but the transformative effect seemed, at least early on, a bit more restricted. The Beatles, though, definitely did a lot, and so did Pink Floyd. Listening to their early albums... Few others even after did that ****. Certainly not as well.

    (And her rich.)

    For some reason, I think there was some re-issue that re-used that cover. It might not have been an official one, though.

    I just have to point out that Pet Sounds and Fifth Dimension came out before Revolver. And Phil Spector was doing his trademark production for a few years since then. (Freak Out and Love were pretty boundary pushing but I am not sure if they had much recording innovation and weren't all that mainstream *) Now the Beatles were probably the most influential when it came to music recording, but saying they pushed the limits entirely by themselves is probably a bit too charitable.

    *yeah I have a lot of stuff I need to listen to.

    Regarding Linkin Park, the only songs I like are the poppier/more electronic ones. They seem to do it a lot better than rap-metal or whatever it is they play normally.

    Oh, definitely. I couldn't see an official product re-using it, no matter how popular it is. (And it's clear that it is popular by the amount of bootlegs of it!)

    I actually prefer their rap-metal to the electronica. The rap/metal songs are just written and composed better imo. But hey, to each their own.

    Chester Bennington's vocals are far too exaggerated, and Mike Shinoda isn't good at rapping. Most Linkin Park songs have awful lyrics. But people like them because their music is accessible. I'll try not to speak for everyone, but a lot of people I've known to like Linkin Park (including myself) grew out of it.

    Yeah, even as a longtime fan, I know the lyrics suck, but I do like the melodies and instruments. i personally like the two vocalists. But yeah, bands like Judas Priest, Queen, Metallica, Led Zep, and Black Sabbath kick their asses to Alpha Centauri and back.

    I don't really think it's fair to compare them because LP are much more modern than those bands. But as far as metal goes, I'm not a big fan of much of it, but I'll always tune into some 80's thrash given the chance.

    Yeah, this. They're... really a LOT different to e.g. Judas Priest, Metallica.

    Twelve phones in two years, Jesus Christ.
    Do you chuck them across the room all the time, or did you just pick the cheapest android phone you saw and not read any reviews on it? Or do you get bad cases of the dropsies, like I do?
    Here's my beloved Droid 3 of two years (also enjoy my disgustingly large hands). The one day I did not have my broken, yet slightly functional, case on it, my hand decided to stop working and it fell onto a stone floor, bounced on it's corner, then slammed down face-first. It still works, obviously, just the speakers don't work anymore so I can't hear someone on the phone, and the bits of glass are coming off the screen so I knick my fingers up a bit when I use it. I just have to wait until I can afford a new phone comparable to it. Alkansdgasdg.

    Ouch, that's gotta hurt. A close friend of mine majored in English and graduated a couple of years ago. She's been working the same slightly-above-minimum wage job for nearly 8 years, now. :u
