  1. Fortus interview in Forbes

    I feel like Axl would have a stroke playing Perfect Crime. I don't say that in a mean way. I just don't believe his current voice is equipped for such a taxing song.
  2. I had this discussion with my girlfriend a few weeks ago. I was listening to some EDM instrumental and she told me she didn't like that the vocals had been removed from the song and that words resonate with her more than the music itself. I on the other hand, don't really get anything out of the lyrics. With that in mind, which type are you? Do you connect more with music or lyrics?
  3. General Chat / Random Musings

    Few things are better than climbing into bed after a long day at the office
  4. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I disagree. It was different every night
  5. NFL thread

    I think that we're going to get our asses kicked by the Niners again but I'm also optimistic because anything can happen in the playoffs. At any rate, the Packers weren't even supposed to get this far this year.
  6. The "New Album" Thread

    You see, they won't do that because it would actually make sense
  7. Which resonates with you more- music or lyrics?

    @soon exactly. The orchestral parts in the second verse of TWAT hit me hard just because I was into the song and it was a happier time in my life. Around 1:06
  8. Which resonates with you more- music or lyrics?

    Warning: this may sound pretentious I connect emotionally with the instrumental side if that makes sense. There'll be moments with a lot of the songs on CD where I'll get chills because the instrumental side of things spoke to me and whatever it is I'm feeling at the time. A song like Estranged will hit really hard if I'm in the right mindset because of the emotion that just pours out of the instruments. I guess the mood of the song has a lot to do with how I hear it.
  9. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    Surprisingly, I am a fan of the old country I suppose what I was getting at is there's a lack of genuineness with a lot of artists.
  10. What's your unpopular GN'R opinion?

    I like that the band moved away from the Appetite sound/image. The best way to get me to lose interest in a band is to put out the same record, especially if every record is about drugs, alcohol, and partying. GN'R didn't do that with Appetite but I swear to God, every band that plays in the GN'R style tries to portray this hardcore image and they end up coming across as try-hards. Yes, it's fun to get really drunk but when every other song is about whiskey and women, it's boring as shit.

    New thread!
  12. The "New Album" Thread

    The last Slash album/tour cycle in addition to more GN'R dates just killed any hope of a new album for me.

  14. Impending US/UK war with Iran

    This pissing contest really needs to stop.

    Alright, I saw the movie two weeks ago and had a little time to let it sink in. Here are my thoughts... 1. I enjoyed it and thought it was the strongest movie of the sequel trilogy. That said, I still prefer the prequels/original trilogy. 2. Having different directors really hurt the trilogy. Abrams made a safe movie with TFA. He used a safe format (Ep. IV) and the purpose of the movie was to introduce us to the characters and set up for the next movie. Now we're at TLJ. Rian Johnson decided to put his own touch and it didn't really pick up where Abrams left off. TLJ was just more setup. Then we get to TROS. Abrams is back in the directors seat but he didn't have the second movie to build on the first. So now we're at three movies with a weak story arc. 3. Although I really enjoyed it, the fan service was very heavy. 4. I know this is supposed to be the last movie and I know it's supposed to tie up loose ends, but I really think that Kylo should have been the one to kill Palpatine. It would have made sense if they spent the whole movie building up this redemption arc for him.

    Long live Avicii!!!

  18. The "New Album" Thread

    I feel like they've been stalling since '09 honestly. It's been too long between releases for there to be hold-ups with the label or writing credits or whatever excuses people are throwing out these days.
  19. New Slash Interview On Steve Jones Show !

    This band just defies all logic sometimes. It can't be that difficult to take 10-12 months away from touring and get into a studio to make a record, especially if they're using songs that already have lyrics and a general structure. Even then, writing from scratch can't be that hard for musicians of their caliber.
  20. New Slash Interview On Steve Jones Show !

    I'm surprised there's still people getting their hopes up with this band about any information regarding new music.
  21. Has Izzy retired?

  22. Has Izzy retired?

    The blatant insults are unnecessary but I can certainly understand why some fans (myself included) are tired of hearing about them when it's pretty clear that they won't be rejoining the band any time soon.
  23. MYGNRFORUM YouTube Policy

    Oh boy, here we go with the politics.
  24. Best Live Recordings per era?

    AFD Era- Ritz '88 UYI Era- Paris 1992 CD Era- HOB/Rio 2001, Boston 2002, Rock am Ring 2006, Tokyo 2009 NITL Era- Houston 2016
  25. They just had that 'it' factor. As the previous post said, they were a real band in an era full of hair metal. Guns is my favorite band so I don't like to compare other bands but they blow any modern rock band out of the water. Ps- I'm half drunk right now so don't take any of this seriously
