What are you listening to right now?

Postby Dee4Three on Thu Apr 19, 2018 1:57 am

Hi all,

Looked for a thread on here related to music, couldn't find one. So, here we are.

Figured it would be cool to have a space to share music that we are listening to at any given time. Personally, I go through fazes, but certain music sticks around for life. Recently, I've been listening to Chali 2na and some of Jurassic 5's music again.

Thinking about doing a 2K17 highlight reel video using the song below, catchy... I also think Chali 2na is vastly underrated.

Podcasts. As I get older and more crotchety, I listen to less and less music. It's only a matter of time before my answer here is NPR or some other equivalent.

I don't listen to podcasts, maybe I should.

But, when you do get the itch to listen to music, what is it? Like what's the most recent thing you played?

90's and early 2000's hip hop and r&b. DMX. 50 Cent. Eminem. Nas. Jay-Z. Kanye West. Dr. Dre. 2Pac. B.I.G. Lil Wayne. Busta Rhymes. Big Pun. A lot of that. I feel incredibly stereotypical anymore, like the old man yelling at the cloud about how today's music is absolute trash and garbage and doesn't compare to BACK IN MY DAY. It's tough to feel like you've fallen right in line with what is expected of you, but here I am. Like my father talking about The Beatles.

I hear ya.

However, I don't think it's something to be ashamed of, or something that an individual should even question. I DO believe that most of the music today is scripted garbage, hardly any of the "Musicians" who make it onto "Radio Hits" write music. They are literally born and raised in the industry, and have the reigns handed to them in order to produce a garbage message in the form of social engineering.

The amount of songs (and rappers names) that speak about Xanax, or have something to do with Xanax, is no coincidence. What they put in front of our youth/young adults in the form of content is a damn shame. Have you looked at the billboard top 100 recently? 6ix9ine, Lil Uzi, etc etc... it really is a bunch of pure garbage.

However, some of the early 2000's stuff, and some 90's stuff was trash as well, and some of it seems to have been for the same purpose, to direct a good portion of the population towards a movement, a sort of social engineering. Nothing wrong with sticking with stuff you like, though. In fact, I think so many people want to be "In" nowadays that they pretend to like stuff they actually do not.

With that being said, I think this is the best Live performance I have ever seen (Obviously I was not there.. as I was not born yet). Talk about singing with feeling. I grew up listening to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Ted Nugent, Megadeth, etc. Once out of my parents house, I held onto some of that but also listened to a lot of Nelly, Eminem (A LOT), Nas, etc. I go through fazes.

FYI - I am not religious. So that has nothing to do with me liking this performance, I like it because of the feeling, the realness of it.

I can't stand the mumble rap and the garbage they play on the radio. It must've been at least 5 years since I've listened to the radio on a consistent basis.

Only new guy I fucks with is J Cole.

I don't like podcasts. I feel like it's people sitting around shooting the shit with nothing to talk about. If anything I'll watch a show like MMA hour on YouTube where there's like video to go with it

Like you said some music sticks with me and I have been a 2pac fan for over 23 years. I even got one of his tattoos on my chest in his honor

I saw Chali 2na and J5 perform last year. Man they ROCKED IT when they did In The House from NBA Live 06

I also find myself at the age where I'm tending to listen more to old favourites and the music I grew up with, rather than new stuff. Admittedly I've never really been into the music scene, discovering new bands and the like, and my taste is pretty eclectic to say the least, but I can definitely relate to the "old man yells at cloud" feeling.

If I do discover a new (or newish) song that I like, it's actually usually through the soundtracks for NBA Live or NBA 2K.

a timeless gem from '96. pac could paint such a perfect picture in so few words. what's haunting about this twenty-two year old track is that everybody featured in it is now dead, even the producer.

Lol I don't specifically mean the nlsc podcast, as you guys do cover some interesting stuff but i cringe when I see a 2 hour sound clip loading up and there's one small thing I wanted to hear about.

It's funny those soundtracks don't necessarily have songs you will listen to, but you're forced to listen to it so much those songs actually grow on you. There's usually one or two songs that I really like that I had never heard of. City On Lockdown was a good one this year

You don't like Kendrick? Or Vince Staples? Or Danny Brown? Or any of the Odd Future guys? I agree that mumble rap is terrible, bunch of tatted up 16 year old kids high on Xanax. And now they have their martyr Lil Peep whose music we have to pretend was good. But there is still a lot of good rap out there IMO.

Out of all those guys you named, Kendrick is the only one whose music I've listened to. Some of it is good, but for some reason it's hard for me to like him even though he's from Compton/LA
I know he's good, but not my cup of tea. I admit I like his newer stuff better than the old

Speaking of Cole, his new album dropped today. I wouldn't have known if Arcane hadn't been hyping it for days lol

I'm sure. Only been to a couple concerts my whole life, never for that genre of music.

Speaking of which, that's always been one small regret I had. I wish I had gone to more concerts when I was younger.

Heard this for the first time today, catchy. Never heard of these guys before.

Lately I've been loving Cardi B's album. One of the few lately that I've been able to listen to from front to back without wanting to skip tracks. I also listened to J. Cole's new album the other day, but it wasn't really for me. I appreciate socially aware rappers, but I find him to be a bit corny or something. Maybe he needs more features :P

My listening habits depend on the environment around me, I guess. When I'm at work, I find English lyrics distracting, so I tend to listen to a lot of latin pop artists like Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, and Gloria Estefan. When I want something a bit heavier, I find I like Napalm Death and Cannibal Corpse, since I can't really understand their lyrics through the growls, but I like the instrumentation.

When I'm on the train, I like metal bands like Opeth, Meshuggah, Lamb of God, and Slayer. Although, in saying that, I also listen to a lot of pop on the train as well.

Yeah, my musical taste is all over the shop at the moment :lol:

Shadowgrin,

That thumbnail for "The last of the real ones" is enough to give me nightmares.

Never been a big fan of Fallout Boy, but not bad. The beginning of that song has a bit too much of an Adam Levine sound... but it gets better after the intro.

Whenever I hear Fallout Boy, I think Panic at the Disco..... anybody else get that? Similar sound.

Kevin,

I'd say... going from Gloria Estefan to Slayer.... but I am kind of like that as well. I go from Megadeth to Andy Grammar, or Eminem to Everclear. I think that says something about a person, shows they have an open mind. I also think it shows that the person can have many different mood sets.

Either way, not a fan of Cardi B, or Lopez/Estefan/Shakira. However, I see the draw.

Interesting. Makes sense that they would know, though.

Sound wise, I always thought the same about The Killers and The Bravery. In fact, pretty sure they got into a fued at one point. Always thought those two bands sounded a ton alike, never could really tell the difference.

Never liked either of them anyway.

Correct, but Take Me Out isn't a bad tune. Otherwise, not a fan. I actually just went through a Franz playlist after you mentioned it just to refresh my memory.

Nostalgia with this one. (Chali again, just with J5). My buddy and I used to play this when going to play pickup ball. We used to go to a local college (UNH) where they had 4 courts running every night. Had to pay $5 every time to get in, but it was worth it. My buddy was a big J5 fan.

Listened to some Pantera today. I've always liked the sound, but this band may be one of the most unliked/popular bands of all time. I've seen some pretty vile things said about them, most involving calling them white trash. Personally, I like many Pantera songs, I've listed three here that are currently on my playlist.

Pantera have some great songs (my favourites being Mouth For War, 5 Minutes Alone, and Fucking Hostile), but I think the problem is that Phil Anselmo himself is a pretty polarising figure. I have to admit, I didn't listen to them a whole lot after his white power controversy.

This turned a lot of people off, but I rememeber his comments the following days about it. For some reason, I took his apology a little better than I've taken most (in similar circumstances).

But like you said, some great songs. How many controversial characters are there that have great music? So many... look at Michael Jackson for example. All of a sudden you hear nothing about his child molestation case from the early 90s, and the other ugly rumors. Now he's just talked about as Michael Jackson, the great artist.

Obviously a great song, a good thinking song. This is one of those songs that's good to drive at night too.

And Sauru, I still listen to the stuff I listened to in the 90's sometimes, I mix it up though.

I feel like a crotchety old man because I am the same way. The only radio station I can listen to for long periods of time is KDAY because they play 90s and early 2000s hip hop and r&b

Obviously a great song, a good thinking song. This is one of those songs that's good to drive at night too.

And Sauru, I still listen to the stuff I listened to in the 90's sometimes, I mix it up though.


I'm with Sauru, we are dinossaurs, man.

We listen the same songs we used too, most because we love the feelings and memories that each one of this songs brings to us.

How about this folks...

For those around my age (Andrew), pretty sure you remember the barrage of popularity we endured by Linkin Park in the early 2000's. I was in high school when it started, and people were selling Linkin Park CD's at my school for $10 a pop (Downloaded music burned onto discs, probably grabbed from LimeWire). I'll admit, I enjoyed Meteora and Hybrid Theory. I didn't enjoy the later music.

Not sure how popular they were in the rest of the world, as I live in the US about an hour outside of Boston. So it could have been different where you other guys are located. But Linkin Park was a big deal where I am from.

That explains why you said you didn't like the song I chose for a certain video I made, haha.

I didn't listen to much Linkin Park back in the day (in fact, "Crawling" is the only song I'm familiar with), but I'm not a good barometer of what's popular in music. I think they were reasonably popular here at the time.

Linkin Park were pretty huge around the release of their first two albums. I still listen to them fairly regularly and I even like their newer stuff (hell, Battle Symphony from their latest album is pretty damn good IMO). They were always a pop band in my eyes, so it was no real surprise that they went in that direction.

I managed to see them three times: once at a standalone gig and twice at festivals. They were always good if not a little sanitised.

In regards to Papercut, it's still one of my favourite opening tracks of all time.

This turned a lot of people off, but I rememeber his comments the following days about it. For some reason, I took his apology a little better than I've taken most (in similar circumstances).

But like you said, some great songs. How many controversial characters are there that have great music? So many... look at Michael Jackson for example. All of a sudden you hear nothing about his child molestation case from the early 90s, and the other ugly rumors. Now he's just talked about as Michael Jackson, the great artist.


Still a bit of a struggle for me to listen to Pantera. Aside from the controversy, I just find there's a lot of metal bands I prefer to listen to more (Opeth, Strapping Young Lad, Napalm Death, just to name a few).

And popular music is definitely littered with controversial figures, which is why I never understood why Kanye West was singled out (at least before his latest ramblings, anyway).

Linkin Park was huge here for years, especially during the TRL days. Even to this day if you play Numb somewhere, everyone in the room will sing along

I enjoyed the earlier stuff with more Mike Shinoda. Wasn't the big fan of the stuff with Chester

I went on a Fort Minor binge last year. Listened to a lot of music I hadn't heard before. Solid.

It annoys me that I'm so hooked with all the LoFi hip hop beats. Listened to it once while studying and now I can't stop.

Wiki says all of them already are, they’ll be tried as an adult in court when they chop your balls off during a performance piece.
