    Does it have to be a band or do solo artists count?

    Anyway, bands only until I get an answer:

    Sigur Ros





    Pink Floyd





    The Beatles


    <- I love the final song but this version is so beautiful!


    Radiohead





    I'm a huge fan of Isis, by the way. Good call. There are a million more bands, and a ton of other solo artists like Nick Drake, George Harrison, etc.

    Guns n Roses ( the original band )

    Not necessarily. This thread is legitimate. And no I am not choosing one band nor one video, and it's silly that solo artists don't count given that they usually play WITH A BAND.

    Your tastes are pretty generic, so it's not a concern to me. If you could remove your post I would be grateful though.

    This is a forum, if you want a pristine list of people's fave bands, collect the ones that fit your criteria from the posts and post a list of them in your OP or somewhere else.

    I wasn't responding to your comment, I was responding to the "self indulgent hippy" that just slated my thread rules because he didn't like them. Also, since when did all solo artists have associations with bands. If don't like my thread don't post Jacob, I don't need to hear about it.

    Like I said, this is a free for all forum, so you don't really have the luxury of not having people butt in to your conversations or put any rules and have people obey them. In the same way as most of us don't have the luxury to kick you out.
    So if you don't like how people post here, either discuss it with a mod or leave and got to draw.

    What are talking about, I am not doing anything wrong, Jacob said "Does it have to be a band or do solo artists count? Anyway, bands only until I get an answer:"

    So he was prepared to change his selection based on my thread rules. So then I change it and then he complains after my polite response, now you are attacking me. Just post a band and stop complaining and writing forum jargon like IBTL. I bet you're all art school students damn it.

    No, but you do have pretty high expectations of an internet forum, and apparently can't handle when it's told to you. If you can't at least write your own rules down from the start, you have very little right to start asking people to remove their posts that were posted before that.
    And if you consider that "attacking", you really could grow some thicker skin too.

    TinyBird, I originally posted "I want to know your favourite band?" Which means "one" band and posting an example of that. I didn't need to ellaborate on that, I just did because he asked and was obviously confused posting three bands across twelve videos. So I dumbed the question down to align with the Walmart demographic.

    Or it means you typo'd like 90% of people in here. And considering how awkwardly your question is written, expecting a typo isn't isn't too far fetched.
    And even then the actual rules of "one band, one video/song" are not clear from that alone.

    So I dumbed the question down to align with the Walmart demographic.
    Well, you are on the internet.

    Well, you are on the internet.
    Not really, his response is the only one with twelve examples, everyone else picked one. Considering my response was the first one, with one example, you would figure everyone would follow suit.

    *sees the Worst of CA thread over on the shoreline growing ever closer*

    We'll be landing soon. Keep the wind in the sails, lads.




    Anyway, I know this breaks the rules but I have a couple favourites.



    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Well, I think at this point it's safe to say "screw the rules" since this thread is already ruined.

    The reason I asked for one band, is becuase it makes people think more. We live in a world with an abundance of choices, it would be "more interesting" to see everyones top choice. Sadly like you said, it's the internet so what I did expect Muse and Radiohead. Yawn

    Well, if you wanted more original and classy choices, you might have wanted to point that out. After all, something being a favorite, doesn't mean it's also actually good.

    I just thought seeing as you're an artsy anarchist, I expected better from you than MUSE. Now if you would have come back at me with something like Norway's Kvelertak, I would have welcomed your fustration.

    Well, that's what you get for expecting idiotic things based of false assumptions. I'm the least artsy, most boring and uncultured person that's stuck to 90's I know.

    You say "Kvelertak" (Norwegian music, pfft) and I say "Baltimora"

    Contemporary?
    Anyway, the truth is that Finland is not part of Scandinavia mainly because Finnish music is just too awesome for Scandinavia to handle. If we were to join, most of Northern Europe would probably explode. But it's a very "hush hush" secret.

    Undeniable proof.
