Any Monster Magnet fans out there? I thought the band was pretty much done when Dave Wyndorf OD'd a few years ago so I was really happy (and surprised) when I found out they had a new album out. I think it's their best in a long time.

I don't think they've done any proper videos but I found this...

http://youtube.com/watch?v=vRtoozYTCDM

Not my favorite song on the CD but it's still a good one.

Interestingly...you know the other "related videos" they list on the right side of the page on youtube? I see Dave was on Politically Incorrect. I'll have to watch that sometime soon.

So I see that Clutch vid and all I can think is they had nothing on Johnny, or Stevie Ray Vaughn, or any of the old Blues/Rock guys that I either worked for, or did gigs with. Not saying I didn't like Clutch, but alls I could think was, been there, done that.

Dude...neither Johnny nor Stevie were planting any flags. Blues has been around forever. Every generation it gets redefined.

Clutch are one of the most original bands of the last 20 years. They have a sound all their own.

Lately...they've gotten a little more bluesy.

Naw - if you want to gank something off youtube try this:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNf9rEPoc8Q

I prefer this version of Flash: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4wYFTymp4E

Now, if you want a kick-ass Queen video, here's one that's got a rockin' tune, plus it has rennies, swords and Sean Connery: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnrXiaPVeHY

But for a balls-out driving tune, there's few that can compare to C'mon C'mon by the Von Bondies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sE4dfRa56D8

Dude, Johnny is one of the founders of Blues/Rock. Hell, look at the lineup of artists at Woodstock. His is the last name on the list. He's 64 this year and he's been playing since he was, I want to say 10, but I'd have to go look at his bio to be sure of that. So to say he wasn't planting any flags would be wrong. Some of his recorded versions of songs are legendary. He is also one of the few that can honestly claim he has played with a whole slew of the old legendary Blues artists of the 40's and 50's (I've personally witnessed a few of these gigs) and Jimi Hendrix too (didn't get to see that one, damn). Blues and Blues/Rock are 2 different animals. Related, but not the same.

Stevie was a new comer to the scene, but he was also out there playing long before Clutch got going and doing his own stuff as well as covers. Unfortunetly, he died way to early, ah well.

I like Clutch, they are a good band, I just don't see them as being anything really new. I always have respect for bands that go out and do their own music, but I just don't see them as one of the truely great and original bands of our times. A good solid band, but me personally, I wouldn't pay to go see them. If someone were to put me on a guest list and I had nothing going on for that night, then I'd go see them.

But argueing about music is like tap dancing about art. Everyone has an opinion, everyone has different tastes and everyone has different experiences with it.

...Someone unlock the '80's and let Lord D out please?  ;)

But... I LIKE it in here! :P :D

The 80's was the last great decade of music.

The 90's seemed to be all about angst and depression.

Today's music is, for the most part, complete and utter crap, populated by artists whos claim to fame seems to be how rude and uncouth they can be or how many times they can splash their faces (or other body parts) across the tabloids.

Noooo thank you.

And despite the fact that I'm only 31 years old, I love 80's and earlier music, especially jazz from the 30's and 40's. Put on an old record of Glen Miller and his Orchestra playing "In the Mood" and I'm in heaven.

I was born far too late into this world.

I've got 6 years on you, junior, and I agree with a lot of what you're saying.  Still there is good stuff out there now like Wolfmother, Linkin Park, Clutch, Killswitch Engage, Flogging Molly, Muse...

That's just the music the record companies pushed down our throats because it was selling.

There were a lot of great bands making more upbeat music in the 90's.

I actually think 90's rock was pretty awesome.

Examples?

Clutch, L7, Kyuss, Butthole Surfers, Helmet, Monster Magnet, Fu Manchu, Novadriver, White Zombie, Tool, Sepultura...to name a few.

Granted...maybe "upbeat" isn't the right word. But most of those bands weren't doing the whiny "Wah wha I'm so sad I hate my parents I wish I was dead" kinda' stuff that we think of with a lot of the emo grunge bands that were so popular.

Most of that hardly got any radio play. Tool and White Zombie being the exceptions. Thank god I spent most of the 90's listening to college radio. If it wasn't for Seton Hall WSOU...who knows what I'd be listening to now.

I listen to everything except extreamly sad country and rap.  Can't stand either.

AMEN!!  I have worn out my Blackout album by Dropkick Murphy and have others.  That is a band that does get turned up when I listen to it!

I also really enjoy Metallica, Marilyn Manson, Smash Mouth, The Offspring, The Night Watchmen, Good Charlotte and others.  On the other hand, Herbie Hancock, Muddy Waters, Nina Simone, Allison Krauss are also all favorites.  ..... erm .............. guess I am an odd duck after all ..........

Good times.

I've found that no matter what decade, there has never been a lack of good music. You just had to look for it off the beatin' path.

As Pathos mentioned, college stations were always a good source, because they are free form and not locked into the commercial programming that mainstream radio is in. Commercial programming is controlled by the record companies and Billboard magazine and other such industries. The programing is computer controlled and the stations in the comercial networks are told to plug into the program. They give the DJs a choice of maybe 1, or 2 songs they can choose on their own, but most times it comes from a list. Some stations try to rebel a little by having late sunday night programming about the Beatles, or the Grateful Dead, or they cover a little of the local music scene, but you don't hear much independant programing, unless you listen to the college stations, or know the frequency of a pirate station.

Sometimes, you get lucky and you find an independant station, like KPIG. I think they are out of the Pacific Northwest. They say their programing is Hawaiin/Bluegrass, but they do all kinds of interesting stuff.

Someone mentioned Big Band. I grew up on that stuff. My father loved that and jazz, so I acquired a taste for it myself. Some nights when I'm home alone checking my email, I'll tune the cable box to the music stations and listen to the Big Band/Swing station. Other nights I might listen to the Bluegrass station.

Usually though, my chant when it comes to music is, "LOUDER, FASTER. LOUDER, FASTER".
