Unfortunately many of my favorite bands are known as ‘drug bands’ but In my opinion the best musicians are currently playing in the genre of Jam/Fusion

  

Ah yes jam bands are the freaking drug fiesta kings (or queens, no discrimination)*

Now I feel a strong need to email 8minutecapecod@gmail.com about this now......a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-paul-7

*Wait , are there any all-female/majority-female jam bands??? (This is another question for the Crisis Crew.......)

As far as I’ve seen the Jam scene is mostly male dominated. I’m no OG, have only been tuned in for a few years, however I have seen some women who can really play. The Keyboardist for Ghostlight is the real deal, and the women featured in Trey Anastasio’s horn section are supremely talented vocally, technically, and creatively. For the most part however, most of the bands you’ll see at a jam festival are all men.

Well fellas ya girls got a new goal in life ahdn_john_08_gif 

Time to start the first all-female/mostly-female jam band paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Edit: Wait no not the first because I did research and there's the Ace of Cups and also this article ----> https://sheshredsmag.com/jam-band/

But still, mostly female jam band would be cool to start.

That article mentions Susan Tedeschi. She’s so great. Phenomenal voice and guitar chops. TTB is one of the top bands going right now.

I listened to A Day At The Races for the first time today and I'm actually kind of infatuated with Freddie yelling "GIVE ME EVERY INCH OF YOUR LOVE" in "Tie Your Mother Down" I see you, gay(er) version of Robert Plant in "Whole Lotta Love" <.<

Radio Gaga by Queen - very likely to be the worst song of all time.

I don't know how anyone can call a Beatles song the worst of all time. Hell, even the worst Beatles songs of all time (Love Me Do , The Inner Light , Good Night ) aren't bad songs by non-Beatles standards. But especially not What Goes On ?, i love that song.

As for Radio Ga Ga, it's a generic 80's pop anthem, bad but not any worse than the others like Don't Stop Believing, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, and We Built This City.

For my nomination, i'd pick Dance Monkey. Vocals that sound like nails on a chalkboard over a basic 4 chord loop, yet it STILL somehow managed to top the UK charts and hit #4 on the US charts.

What Goes On isn't terrible smh! Radio Ga Ga isn't that terrible either-- I've definitely heard much much worse than "What Goes On ," "Radio Ga Ga," and "Don't Pass Me By "!

 

Edit: I feckin' hate "Dance Monkey" don't even get me started. And yes I agree with DO when saying that I find it impossible for any Beatles song, even one of the weakest ones, to be the worst song of all time!

Fair enough. But maybe because it's the Beatles, they seem worst in comparison. Sure, it's easy to call a fecking Nickelback song the worst of all time but it's expected. When the Beatles have a stinker, it feels like it really stinks because you have seen them at their best. Also, I like Good Night .

I don't think it's particularly fair to put "Don't Stop Believing" with "We Built This City"

In anyways, I don't believe there is a single 'worst' song. Even if a song is particularly and subjectively terrible, there's bound to be someone that enjoys it. For example, by all regards, "My Pal Foot Foot" is a terrible song. The song is completely out of tempo, keys constantly shifting to the point of insanity and monotonous singing, just to name a few qualities. However, many people (including myself) to be a good song, simply because we like it and deem it to be good. So from my perspective, at least, no song is objectively good or bad, but rather the association that the majority of the public deems to be either 'good' or 'bad'.

Except for "Friday", that song is objectively terrible.

I have heard some of the girl's later and more modern work, she definitely improved since then, but not to the point where I can see myself listening to regularly. But at least she improved, and that's all that matters.

Side note: Revolver is the greatest album of all time, and that's an objective fact. Fight me.

Hello, Abbey Road ?

Yes this is Revolver , the greatest album ever, can I help you?

edit: I can’t believe this. Yall are actually serious about a Beatles song being the worst ever?!?! Queen wrote several of them, however pick any song ever its likely to be much worse that the great tunes that are What Goes On , Goodnight, Don’t Pass Me By, The Inner Light

During a UC Berkeley virtual tour and webinar thingy that I "attended" today, one of the "tour guides" was talking about the school's sports traditions and such and when it came to the topic of their mascot, Oski the bear, the tour guide described him as "wonderful, unique, omnipresent, legendary", which was really weird especially since he said it with a completely straight face and tone, and now I think that UC Berkeley is just a cult that worships Oski the Golden Bear like he's a god-like figure ahdn_paul_02ahdn_paul_02 

The question remains though: do I want to join this cult or not??? ahdn_george_01ahdn_george_01

Also to better add to the current discussion: I concur that Revolver is the best album ever.

Radio Gaga lends itself to the best ever moment in a concert ever.

 

 

And for that it cannot be the worst song ever.

I will defend my claim that What Goes On is the worst song ever. In the midst of an album as lush and wonderful as Rubber Soul , it sticks out like the sorest of thumbs.
