I've heard of The Minus Five. They're probably not the same thing, because they're made up of geezers.

coldplay

I like a more than an albums worth of songs but don't find myself to be as attached to them as much as others on this forum.

I would say a bit more, but I'm worried of what would happen.
I like them, I'm not saying I don't, it's just I don't get the big 'hype' about them and why they're so popular..

i saw sigur ros live in 2003 and it was the most moving concert experience i've ever experienced. the sound of their music live moved me to the point of almost crying out of joy.

You are not alone. They're not bad, they're not fan-bloody-tastic either.

So are they more of a live thing? Better in concert? Maybe I've heard the wrong songs, but I just can't connect to them.

Many of the Phish fans I've know have foresaken all other music, and listen to nothing but Phish. Usually live shows.

No comprendo.

I would have said the Who at one point but their live performance at Live 8 was pretty damn good.

Nirvana and the Counting Crowes - yeah I'm with the people who don't get the adulation heaped on those two bands.

Hee. The same thing could be said about some U2 fans. But yeah, I know what you mean, though I like Phish.

I never thought that the Counting Crows had the same level of fame as Nirvana or The Who.

Nirvana is important because of what they did to the state of modern music. They should be respected, but not revered in my opinion. They popularized what bands like the Pixies had been doing previously.

The Who just rock, plain and simple.

Sigor Ros is a very original band.
They come up with really cool sounds, and I like the way they mix there songs(if you listen to there music with headphones, it is really cool how they pan left and right, and fade in and out there sounds). They remind me of Radiohead and The Doves in a sense, and unforgettable fire U2, how they mix there music.

ha! thanks to itunes and the sharing music feature thingie, i was able to see what other people on my wifi network at my old apartment listened to if they too had this feature enabled. one guy's library was seriously 99% phish music, 1% random shit (like the dude had five versions of bananaphone). then he im'ed me over rendezvous and within five seconds i realized he perpetuated the stereotypes people believe about phish fans (stupid stoner type, etc).

anyway, i suppose i don't get radiohead, coldplay, nirvana, or the beatles.
