    20 oct. 2007, 19h58m

    Keep in mind that this is meant as fun...

    1). The Mars Volta:
    Needs to get GSL off the ground and start releasing albums off that label instead of Universal, especially if we want to hear the new album that's never coming out.

    2). The Sound of Animals Fighting:
    Doesn't sound like animals fighting.

    3). Rx Bandits:
    You guys switch genres with every album. Make up your minds already.

    4). Bomb The Music Industry!:
    Maybe you guys should stop being so cheap and negative.

    5). Coheed & Cambria:
    Wow, Sci-Fi story? For 4 CDs? feags.

    6). Circa Survive:
    Little progress was made on the second album. Sounds kind of rehashy.

    7). Every Time I Die:
    The New Black is far too radio for ETID. Doesn't fit at all.

    8). Thursday:
    Emo much?

    9). The Fall of Troy:
    Manipulator took some time to really start to enjoy. Not a good sign.

    10). Big D & The Kids Table:
    Need I bring up August of 2006? You almost ruined my entire summer Dave McWane.

    11). The Impossibles
    You guys stopped making music far too soon.

    12). Are You A Fox?
    Only 5 fucking songs? WTF?!

    13). At The Drive-In
    In/Casino/Out is an album I can't stand for some reason.

    14). HORSE the band
    You make CD's about pizza. Come on Nintendo? What are you guys like 12?

    15). Streetlight Manifesto
    Kalnoky has a voice that's hard to enjoy sometimes.

    16). Chiodos
    Craig Owens is a drama-queen.

    17). Reel Big Fish
    No Matt Wong. No Tyler Jones. No Carlos De La Garza. Guys drop like flies in this band.

    18). dredg
    Lead singer sounds like an old man with a monotone.

    19). Sigur Ros
    Sounds basically.

    20). CAKE
    You do too many covers. Stick to some original shit.
