Rock music is dead.

Undead, undead, undead.


Serious Bonus points to you! You are now speaking my genre (and related)

Sorry they are late. Had not read the thread in while.
All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

Megadeth drummer, Nick Menza, who played on such classic albums like Countdown to Extinction, Youthanasia and the monumental, Rust in Peace, died of heart failure at 51.  RIP.

That's pretty sad, he was awesome. Drummers do some weird things to play hours along on stage.

Rock music is dead.

Well, I admit that the golden age is long over, being between the late 80's and around 2006. That being said, some quality rock music is still being made. There's just no longer a center of gravity in the genre anymore to push it as a whole.
You have the wrong decades for the "golden age". Try 60s and 70s.

You're good people.
Is that what they teach you at the temple volnutt-stein?

Actually, it's Volnutt-berg.

Rome doesn't care. Rome is actually very cool guy.

Has anyone here checked out the new Coal Chamber that came out last year?  It's not standard nu metal, and is very influenced by Dez's other band Devildriver:

Never got into them...but they and Life of Agony were supporting Megadeth when I saw them in 98, and it's not like Megadeth was filling venues to capacity in the late 90s, so I suppose in some small way their band/fans made it possible for me to see Friedman/Menza-era Megadeth live, so... *cyber nod of appreciation*

I liked Life of Agony to a point.

I never saw Megadeth in the late 90s but did for Rust in Peace.  Hands down, one of the best live shows ever.

Right up there with Crazy Town as one of those bands I almost mercifully forgot about.

I only have one thing to say about this thread:You suffer, but why?
They of course still play it, even though nobody on that record is still in the band!

One of the guys who was on that record (Justin K. Broadrick) went on to create maybe my favorite band: jesu

I went to a karaoke bar that had this on the database. I... "sang" it three times.
