lol @ styx, the doors, and queen....three of the most well known, successful classic ROCK bands... -.-
Yes, Queensryche, really. They get a deserved bad rap by recording Silent Lucidity, which is a stone cold rip off of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb. Queensryche is very derivative. The video you linked to does rock, but it sounds like the intro to Deep Purple's Burn, and goes on to clone Iron Maiden. The thread is Wanna Be Rock Bands and Queensryche wanna be anybody who can chart. And I say this with all due respect Sir, because us metal heads have to stick together.
P.S. Pantera were true originals and didn't wanna be anything but true to themselves. R.I.P. Dimebag.
Queen? A wannabe? I don't think so!
You're right sandmanxyz, Pantera before Phil Anselmo, even the Power Metal album that still had Terry Glaze's fingerprints all over it, was like another band. I stand corrected. Having said that, I can't compare Pantera from Cowboys From Hell onward to any other band. Very original.
[b]people shouldn't hate music as all music is individual and inst music about expression and who you are. yeah there are crap bands but that your opinion there are also some amazing bands out there focus on them, don't voice your opinion when it will hurt others and also make you look like a dick.
