This is tough, because I have never heard anything by Nine Inch Nails. Don't know anything about them, not where they come from, what kind of music they play. But to surpass Radiohead would require something special.

Both bands have some songs I like, but I prefer NIN...

There's a funny rant/review over at RYM if you can find it.  The guys starts with something like....

"from the first few seconds of Yorke's singing, I have the urge to strike him in the mouth..."

remember

The Downward Spiral is better than anything Radiohead has ever released, personally. I think OK Computer and Kid A may be just a tad over-rated. Still good, but they receive a bit more credit than I feel is warranted. NIN for me.

radiohead.

i just pre-ordered the fancy deluxe edition of the new album and realised: radiohead is THE ONLY band i would buy a record from without hearing it (perhaps also some steven wilson stuff like bass communion or porcupine tree).

nine inch nails is fantastic though but radiohead wins this round easily.

Interesting, I don't really know any of the other artists except for Pere Ubu.  I got on the Ubu bandwagon when I heard Folly Of Youth on college radio.  I don't know why it clicked with me.  I think that infectious bass line.  I do regret getting those early two albums.  I like some difficult listening music but I cringe every time one of them comes up in rotation.  What hooked me on the NIN was I had a girlfriend that big into them around the time The Downward Spiral came out. I saw an ad in the paper for their upcoming tour appearance in Atlanta and Adrian Belew was mentioned so I gave them a try.  Certainly not for everyone.  Radiohead is one I might have gotten into with OK Computer but I didn't give them a serious try at the time because Beavis And Butthead did one of their videos.  Same thing happened to me with Primus.  Now I like them all.

Odd that, so millions of fans could be so wrong Wink

Ok, so Trent is not a genius... You said so mister. Thank God opinions differ on that matter.

However, it's probably something to do with a new album just been announced. Wink

Hendrix was a man who was all about defying convention, experimenting with new ideas and moving foward. I don't think he would be fond of his image being used to represent someone like you who is a totally closedminded jerkass who writes off an entire generation of music for not conforming to his traditional ideals.

I like Radiohead quite a bit, especially the stuff after Kid A. Nine Inch Nails, however, never did it for me, at least Downward Spiral, The Fragile and Year Zero (haven't heard the rest). Trent has some inspired moments and certainly some unique, but I don't like how he tries to make depression catchy sometimes. Tell me one song where his vocals are more complex and less upbeat, and I'll be glad to listen.

My vote goes for the guy who single handed revolutionized the way rock music is done. Trent Reznor is a legend and shouldn't be casted among Tom Yorke...

If you have a bias against modern music as you said before, then why post here?




Because this poll is asking me to choose between two bands. One had something to do with the pre-89 era and the other is an abomination from a hateful age.
Your an abomination, and i hope you get wiped from the face of the earth, so we dont have to read your usles comments anymore. Go back to your cave you ugly troll!


Bow down before the one you serve.  You're going to get what you deserve. LOL
