Speaking of Christian songs, anybody remember the woeful Stryper?

I was around for The Joy Strings

No I'm not
Where have you got that from?
I just don't know what it means or what it sounds like: the term gets bandied around a lot but doesn't seem to mean anything


Despite its source, this does a decent job of explaining indie: http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Indie_rock

Started as 'independent' (non-major/non-mainstream: 'home-made' attitude) and has been appropriated as a broad genre.

Lost me there, mate.

From memory in the NME Indie Charts they nearly always had Daniel O'Donnell as number 1 album as his distribution was independent.

Adele.
Phil Collins.
The Cocteau Twins.
Rap.
R&B.
The Killers.
Widdly-wah guitar solos
Singers who go '2-3-4'
Rhyming 'baby' with 'maybe'
Song titles that are the first line of the song - just lazy.
Pop songs that go leaping for the chorus within 10 seconds of the song starting.
Justin Bieber.
Any line that ends "... oohh, yeah"
Any line that begins with "I say.."
Snow Patrol (aka 5h!t Patrol)
Muse.
Rush.
Doof-doof-wicky-wicky 'Council' House as heard in max-power cars.
London Hipsters.
Geek rock (Band of Horses/Grizzly Bear/Of Monsters and Men)
Foals.
Bands who introduce the band at gigs - "on drums..."
Singers who hold the mic out to the crowd and shout "Sing it". No, I've paid £40 to hear you sing it you #####.
Any blind/deaf/paraplegic/90-year-old/aboriginal/native american/tribesman sat in a chair, wearing a hat and playing a bl00dy stick on 'Later' with Jools Holland.
'Later' with Jools Holland.
Privileged children of cra@p rock stars being cra@p rock stars.
Anyone who plays a Gibson Les Paul.
Conga players.
Any drummer with a gong.
'Gospel-style' backing singers.
X Factor winners
Boybands who walk while they sing.
Professor Green.
Plan B castigating 'little rich boys' on a platinum selling album: hypocrite.
Mick Jagger
'Moves Like Jagger'
Singers who sing round the note.
Songwriters referencing 'this club' or 'my show'
The Kooks.
Any 'happening band' with 'Club' in its name - an early indicator of 5h!tness (Bombay Bicycle/New Young Pony/Two Door Cinema/Chapel).
David Guetta.
And Adele.


A great list. Not 100% in agreement, but 95% ain't bad. Especially for the two mentions for Adele. and the one for Muse.

Sounds about right. The original indie chart was pretty much all 'alternative' acts of one form or another but by the mid 80's it had mainstream stuff, providing it was independent.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

I'd hazard a guess 'You Suffer' would get your vote as their best work.

As it clocks in at just over a second the suffering is mercifully brief.

Multimillionaire singers like Bono, Annie Lennox and Chris Martin asking us to dip into our pockets for charity. No you do it.

Having said that - Bono.

Musicians that get involved with political issues. Leave it to the politicians, or if you are so passionate about it become one.

I know there are some and these are doing somthing about it. Bono? Jeez. Worth a couple of hundred million and he's asking us to pop in a tenner.

Why? we all, supposedly have the liberty to get involved in political issues, why not rock stars? or actors? or RL players?
