To elaborate further on the article, It's typical hipster douchebag stuff.  Title may has well been ' I hate GnR .'

It is one thing to be critical of the band, but to slam them with almost every sentence in a lengthy article? (The writer does appreciate how good they are live , sort of.)  Not well written and has a decent amount of inaccuracies.

Oh it absolutely is written to get a reaction....but aren't we giving it what it wants if we do anything other than shrug our shoulders at it?

I feel a bit like people get so angry if people think differently to them now, that they can't even tolerate those thoughts existing. It's an opinion thing- I'm fine if this guy doesn't like GNR. I may qell not like a lot of the stuff he does!

I mean, goodness knows why I'm sort-of defending this article! Playing devil's advocate a bit I think, as people's reactions to it seem worryingly extreme.


I saw it and didn't post it because I figured that's what this guy wanted. Attention.

Duff McKagan and Slash are tentatively back in the band

Since April 1st, 2016. Obviously this guy hadn't noticed! 2.5 years of touring and he had no clue..... Until they were booked to play at ACL!

That’s just an opinion piece.  Just go with the saying opinions are like assholes everyone has one.  I just love that November Rain might sound like it has a full orchestra but most that was done with synth. No that’s was impressive for the time it was done.

He will be at the show even if he says he won’t.  Maybe his opinion will change with his press pass getting him front row probably.  Maybe Jarmo, if here, can get a good picture of him singing along just Incase he tries to say it was not a good show.

What go me was the d-bag claimed to be a Replacements fan, noting that Axl "stole" Tommy from the band. Yeah, the Replacements broke up fucking years earlier. Idiot.

I guess his logic is that if Tommy had been available, the Replacements would've reunited years earlier than they did.  hihi

Am I the only who actually had a laugh reading the text even though I love the band?
C'mon, it's obviously not a serious journalism. Take it easy.

This type of concert reminds me of what was it in NY the Governors Ball or something a few years back forgive me if I am butchering what the concert was called but definitely not your hard rock type of festival. Would be very interested in seeing the type of reaction they get. Even if no new material is played its always good to see the type of chemistry they have going for them on display.

No, I did not laugh but this almost made me cry. This, of course, has nothing to do with real journalism but why are these pieces published. It's not even a click-biting title.

This same could have been said in a few sentences but this is the world we live in. Just publish rubbish and people will read it and post it on social media. I don't know the magazine (vaguely familiar name) and the writer's boss will be very happy because, as mentioned, the reaction.

My feedback to them is that write a real click-baiting title or real journalism. Don't write this in-between stupidness. In this case nothing was done well or correctly Cry

don't you think we're saying it's terrible just because we don't agree with it?

No, because we can read and it's a shitty article with errors in it written just to get a reaction....  Cheesy


Quote
GNR burst onto the scene in 1987, and were ridiculous from the jump.

Then he goes on to point out how ridiculous the opening of the Jungle video is.
Now, I can respect that opinion, while disagreeing. But if that's an issue.... Jeez!


So to answer the question in the article's headline. Because there's no one else like them. No matter how much you hate the band, how much you claim to be a hipster who only likes bands that no one else listens to, the fact remains that GN'R has released some of the most iconic songs of all time, and people wanna see the band!

You're absolutely right. It's like somebody saying they hate the taste of shrimp and losing your mind because "BUT I LOVE SHRIMP!!!"

Also, I think it's pretty clear that a lot of the article is tongue in cheek hyperbole. It doesn't exactly make for an interesting article to give a balanced and nuanced opinion on a band. It would also be pretty short if he just said "Eh, they're not my cup of tea."

Also someone who isn't a fan or isn't familiar with present day GNR will likely have a preconceived notion of them shattered when they actually see and hear them play. I think this type of crowd would appreciate the extended jams of the classic songs.  (Rocket Queen for example)

They're the Beatles mixed with Pink Floyd. Sounds like you're the boring one here...

....and there lies the problem for me! They sound EXACTLY like the Beatles mixed with Pink Floyd, which to me is just something from the past now. if I wanted to listen to the Beatles or Pink Floyd, I'd do just that- I'd rather hear new acts doing something a bit more original. I'm not sure how it qualifies as 'boring' to want that from new music?

Is there something wrong with sounding like they're from the golden era of music? It's not like they're Greta Van Fleet literally aping old artists and having no inspiration. Their songwriting is on the level of those legendary old bands and they absolutely have their own sound. Nothing by them actually sounds like a Beatles or PF song whatsoever.

Guns N Roses was often accused of sounding just like Aerosmith mixed with AC/DC, and their sound was "something from the past" when they came out. What matters is the songwriting, and Tame Impala are brilliant at that just like GNR. Not to mention their sublime use of effects. I can only assume you have never actually listened to them on quality speakers or headphones.

Pretty cool song...does have a Syd Barrett era Floyd feel to it.

Either way Friday is ridiculous...Thom Yorke then Jack White then Tame Impala then Guns.  Shocked

Now if we could somehow get Yorke to play some Radiohead songs and White to play some White Stripes, it would really be on.  hihi
