hahaha i just looked them up that is pretty interesting to say the least. great lyrics haha nice suggestion man [thumbup]

 

Neil is a kickass lyricist...most of his lyrics make no sense but they flow nicely and come together really well. He uses random references too...

 

If you can see Clutch live, you shouldn't miss it. They are my fav live band ever!

What is alternative? Didn't really think of the Black Keys as alternative, but they get my vote

 

I'm just waiting for the "goddamnit you whipped snappers, no good music got made after 1974!!!!" group to chime in. Always make me giggle

those are an interesting group hahha. but thats a good quetsion i dont know the exact definition for alternative but i know bands like mars volta are defantly alternative, thats a great band love them too.

Any one who says that is lazy and a really crappy music fan. Just like the ones who preach " No good music before (insert year they started liking music)"

 

I have to admit I don't really know what Alternative music is the4se days. I'm digging Them Crooked Vultures these days.

if ur talking proper alternative stuff then i would say you can beat biffy clyro at the moment!

 

my favorite band of the last three or four years though has to be the courteeners, liam fray is a genius songwriter and immense front man. ive seen them live 4 or 5 times now and are always great!! nice guitars on display too, epiphone riviera, gretch white falcon and recently ive seen liam fray playing a es355 and 137 classic! great band, great tunes and great image!
