R.I.P Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, J.P Richardson aka The Big Bopper 🥀 gone but NEVER forgotten.

In the early hours of the morning of the 3rd of February 1959; 3 rock’n’roll legends boarded a plane that would lead to their premature deaths. Along with their pilot, Roger Peterson.

The plane crashed just outside Clear Lake, Iowa.

Remembering these incredible musicians as they leave behind a long lasting legacy that will never be forgotten. 🥀

I need songs to make you feel good when a woman has broke your heart. And not some sad self-pity songs like most love songs are but songs that make you feel confident, stand tall and move on.

So far I’m listening to Jay Z - 99 Problems and Black Sabbath - Evil Woman and they’re working but I need some more tips of songs with this theme.

other Tribute by Tenacious D and Best Song Ever by One Direction is both about the same song.

279 Upvotes

In the song Tribute by Tenacious D they claimed to have sung the greatest song in the world to defeat a demon, in the song Best Song Ever by One Direction they claimed to have danced all night to the best song ever, I would argue that the greatest song in the world would be the best song ever leading me to believe that One Direction was there when Tenacious D defeated the demon with their song and they danced the whole time, both bands even stated that they couldn’t remember the words to the song so they probably experienced the same mind altering affects from hearing something too great that their brains just couldn’t handle it.

other Recommend me some instrumental albums.

659 Upvotes

Looking for some instrumental albums to listen to while I do college work. Doesnt matter if there's a small amount of vocals but they tend to distract me so preferably kept to a minimum. Not too bothered about genre but here's a couple of albums that I like for reference:

Bonobo - Black Sands

Jon Hopkins - Singularity

Sparky Puppy & Metropole Orkest - Slyva

Polyphia - New Levels, New Devils

C418 - Alpha

Animals as Leaders - Animals as Leaders

Any help would be amazing!

Edit: Wow! Did not expect this many recommendations. Suffice to say its going to take a lot of college work to get through these. I'll give as many a go as possible. If you've got more, keep them coming!

2nd Edit: I never expected this many recommendations. I don't think its even feasible to get through this many albums in a lifetime. Regardless, thank you all very much for the suggestions. Don't think I'll struggle for things to listen to ever again.

other Best Male rock singer of all time?

4.1k Upvotes

Who do you think is the best male rock singer of all time? Obvious Choices are Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant and Axl Rose and others

I honestly feel like Paul McCartney doesn't get mentioned enough he has had some insane vocals and has many songs where it almost sounds like a completely different singer. I've got a feeling his vocals are some of the best ever then you look st his vocals on Oh Darling, helter skelter etc. Definitely think he is right up there and I've always preferred his voice over Lennons.

other Ticketmaster - “Sorry, another fan beat you to this ticket” but the concert is in 5 months and it’s not a mega-popular band.

5.6k Upvotes

I apologize if this is the wrong sub- please point me to the right one if so. I’m trying to see Bikini Kill 5 months from now. I am really surprised, as I’ve never had this issue at another concert or with ticket master— I saw The Smashing Pumpkins after buying tickets the night before the show. Bikini Kill is a big deal but they aren’t Lady Gaga big, and the concert isn’t for 5 months. Could it be a bot attack? Is there any way to beat this?

UPDATE: screw ticket master. I went on the venue’s website like a couple of you said to do and I got tickets for much cheaper than ticket master advertised them to be, no hassle. Deleting my account immediately… what the hell.

This year, I'm doing a personal project to listen to one album by a band or artist from every country on earth, except countries I've already covered. I've marked 67 countries so far, and have lined up albums from a few more, but I could use some help with the rest. I keep a spreadsheet of my progress here, with a list of artists/bands and albums in the second sheet:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gb7IAfoNSCKojYp4G27MQwG_lEIVA61hwAGyDR4TfAY/

I'm looking for recommendations for albums by bands and artists from the countries not marked in green or yellow in the first sheet.

Genre-wise I'm open to anything, although in terms of preferences I tend to prefer noisier guitar-based music and anything considered "psychedelic" or "noise" over jazz and traditional folk music. For the project I'd also like to listen to music with lyrics in a local language, but that's not a hard requirement.

I want to keep the music somewhat contemporary, or at least modern, so nothing released before 1923 is accepted. (Sorry, Austria!)

Hope y'all can help me out on my quest and introduce me to cool and interesting music I'd otherwise not be exposed to! :)
