    What is your favorite "masculine" band? I am a BIG Rammstein fan, they can get me pumped for anything at anytime of the day.

    If you're not familiar with them, check out this music video: (it has anti-homophobic themes, and the band is all straight!)

    I used to play the Bloodhound Gang at work just to make the other homo mad. He always got a horrified look at the Vagina song.

    danielryanwhat the hell is a "masculine" band?


    Haha, well I left it undefined because I don't think it really has a concrete definition.

    When I've encountered it in other artistic areas beyond music, such as literature or paintings, its usually something that evokes the traditional (or archaic to some) "masculine" emotions or states: Strong, robust, loud, hard... ect.

    So... I guess masculine to me is applying aspects of what the male gender means to art. Hope that helps...

    Yeah, I guess I like them more for the sound and lyrics... They're definitely not a boy band! Ha.

    Btw, which person is the Mr Muscleflexer you referred too, the opening guy or someone later?

    Only a few seconds!?I guess they can be a little intense/frightening for some people's tastes...

    Carlson, why didn’t you like them exactly? (not looking for an argument, I’m genuinely interested in what it is about them that turns some people off)

    ps, yes, back flexing = hot

    Ahh yes, Static-X I forgot about them, "PUSH IT!!!!"

    I don't think I know any Otep, I'll have to look into them. What is a good single of theirs you would recommend?

    It's ... C A S L O N ... icon_twisted.gif ... icon_lol.gif

    They sound like just a lot of loud noise to me. Someone would have to give me some very serious analysis of just what the hell they are doing there. It's just loud. I can't follow it.

    ummmmm i dont know that i would consider that band/clip "masculine." unless you are are descibing them as "maculine-gay" (aka they have muscles and are touching each other)

    my fave band is "system of a down" though and love marilyn manson (well manson isnt so masculine, but gays rarely like him)

    Yeah NIN is a good addition, and Marilyn Manson. I guess those are the ones I'm more familiar with.

    Also, Deftones, definitely rock.

    Btw, C A S L O N icon_wink.gif, it might be a matter of the lyrics, German sounds very obtuse and arrhythmic to English speakers, its just a powerful language.

    Other than that I'm just going to assume we have aesthetic differences, Rammstein is obviously my favorite, so what is yours? That might reveal more as to why it sounds like heaven to me and "noise" to you icon_biggrin.gif

    Been a Rammstein fan for some time. But don't mention that to a German ...they are kinda scared to acknowledge neo-nazi leaning bands. And unlike most bands out there now their albums have more than one really rockin tune. Looking at there concerts vids I find it hard to believe that guys who are always naked, play with huge fake dicks that cum and fuck butt hole on stage aren't gay.

    If I were to recommend an Otep song, it would have to be "Confrontation." The whole newest album "The Ascension" is absolutely amazing. I had the pleasure of seeing their tour before it was released, they actually played with Static-X... it was amazing. They do a cover of Nirvana's "Breed" that made me nearly pee myself.


    I agree with you guys on System and on the Deftones, but I feel like neither did much in their later years. Systems first two albums were genius and kind of felt short later on.


    Nine Inch Nails has never ceased to amaze me.



    Timberoo, hate to burst your bubble but I dont consider a synth-rock band who'se #1 single was about androgeny a masculine band icon_smile.gif

    I'm not sure that I could define what it means to be a masculine band, but I think I understand what you're talking about...

    My two faves are Tool and Disturbed.
