I am just surprised Elvis isn't on there.

The high number of country artists makes sense, though.

Linkin Park and Creed absolutely astound me. I can't believe they were/are so popular. Out of the list I like Kid Rock, Eminem, Johnny Cash and Toby Kieth. Kenny Chesney is ok. I like his Island-oriented stuff.

I actually liked LP back in the day. Havent listened to them in forever though. They were pretty unique.

David Cross regularly skews Creed. Check out his album It's Not Funny.

Nickelback blows. Linkin Park, Kid Rock, and Eminem all make sense. I stopped following Nelly after Nellyville, and Metallica made money this decade because of past albums. It certainly wasn't because of St. Anger.

I love country music personally.

I don't see why everybody hates it so much. It's much better than that "rap" stuff they have out now.

Pretty shocked at how little rock/alternative is in there.

Just shows where the money is really.

It just isn't as "money" as it used to be. Every once in a while, a good song comes up but it isn't consistent enough to sell full albums. I haven't heard a new album yet that I would pay $15 for.

You just need to know where to look my friend. The problem with music is the truly good stuff isn't played anywhere obvious. You have to adhere to a certain standard to get played on MTV, VH1, or main stream radio. There's little creativity there. If you want truly good rock or alternative, you have to dig. Satellite radio is surprisingly solid for finding amazing relatively unknown bands. Check these guys out though. This is probably the best band you've never heard of. Or maybe you have?

A Day To Remember

Oh, and if you want a website with LOTS of free music for you to browse, check out purevolume.com. Its not illegal, the bands themselves post the music to get their name out there, and there are A LOT bands posting music on it.....

I would imagine that that crowd is the most likely to download music. That is why rap and country is so high on the list.

Also, before the decade is up, the Beatles will be number 1. They are re-releasing their entire discography, remastered, in September. I cannot wait. The current albums sound so bad on decent headphones.

Add Sinatra, Michael Jackson and U2 to the surprised exclusion.

Would agree that you will very rarely hear the best rock/alternative on mainstream radio or tv. Going to local gigs or my personal favorite is going to a music festival and sitting in the new bands or future sounds stages, is the best way to find good music.

Never heard of A Day to Remember, so cheers for the recommending them. Had a quick listen and not too bad. Would need a few more listens to get an overall view. If you know of any more bands worth checking out let me know as I love hearing new music. That website is brilliant dude also.

Digitally remastered Beatles. No thanks.

I'd rather listen to the original analog recordings. That is how it was meant to be.

I despise polished remasters just for the sake of headphones.

Leave the original collection alone.

Just give me a genre, I'll give you a list of good bands. Most of which you'll find on purevolume, so you won't have to download anything unless you like them. I spend hours on that site, its amazing....

I just went through my iTunes and listed a few bands you might be interested in. If you want more, I can go through in more detail. Plus, I stopped after M, so still have half the alphabet left. Some of this is screamo/hard-core, so if you're not into that, a few of these bands you won't like. They mostly fall into the alternative category though.....

Only the boy band-era Beatles was issued in analog. Rubber Soul and on are in stereo, and it is terrible. They pushed all the instruments to one channel or the other, and it is a very odd experience.

I am usually one to preserve the originals, and I hated what they did with Let it Be...Naked (I don't think they are going to remaster the original Let it Be, the better version), but there needs to be either a good stereo mix for all or a mono mix for the later albums.

Holy **** Locke thats a fair bit to get through :lol:. I'm pretty open to any-thing around the rock/alternative genre so I have no problem going through them all, just may take me a while to get through them.

But thanks alot for that dude, always enjoy hearing new music and most of those bands listed are new to me, so its greatly appreciated. When I get through them all I'll get back to you on it.

But again, cheers dude.

From the way I understand it they are going to release the first four records in stereo since they were the only ones released totally in mono. There will also be mono mixes of the others included.

I agree the old mono format was terrible but most people didn't have stereos back then and were just playing the records on mono record players.

I think you may have missed my point though. I prefer the analog recordings of these songs because that is originally how they sounded when they were recorded. I am not a fan of digital remasters because when they go in and clean up the original analog tracks it sounds way too polished and almost fake. I agree the quality will be better but then you lose that overall originality of how the tracks were recorded. That is where I draw the line. I am perfectly happy with the analog recordings I have on CD. I realize that these versions have been doctored and cleaned up a bit but nothing like you will experience with the digital remasters. The Beatles weren't meant to be examined by computer technology and dolled up.

BTW I heard they are still debating on the release. I also read they have been working on this project for 4 years. Seems as fast as technology moves the digitals they did back in '05 would be obsolete by now.

locke loves it when people asks him for music. you made his day for sure. a friend of ours came over a few weekends ago, and he and locke spent the entire day on his computer going through his itunes. it was seriously seven hours or so. music heads, yeesh....

Finfang, the remasters are definitely coming out in September along with the Beatles Rock Band game. They had to digitally separate the mono tracks for the game, so most of the work was already done.

Personally, I am looking forward to hearing the tracks redone. I have never been able to hear two guitars in the early albums, as hard as I try.
