Re: Your 5 favorite albums
I might have to actually listen to The Black Parade. My Chemical Romance was one of those bands that I randomly stumbled upon in the old days when I would go to music stores and buy these things called "CDs". I used to head into the pop/rock section, find three or four covers / names that looked interesting to me from bands I had never heard of before and buy them. I bought the first MCR album this way apparently right after it had come out and I liked it quite a lot. Got their second one and liked that. Didn't like the first couple tracks I heard off Black Parade and never bought it as a result.
Also, lots of good metal stuff goin on in here.
And, come on... there's some good rap out there. You just gotta know where to look (and it helps if it's making fun of 'real' rap...)
Seriosly, tho... I used to actually listen to some rap stuff I had found. It was a few dudes who actually rapped about things. They weren't just saying shit like "I'm the best" or "I like it when women touch my weewee" or "my life is way more violent and downtrodden than yours is". They were actually rapping about real actual things, not pretend macho bullshit things. I'll see if I can dig them up. They were mostly Bandcamp finds...
