I've always thought of Waiting Room to be a bit of an abberation for them - it's definitely more towards the Lookout! Records style than what I usually associate with Dischord Records.

Ian MacKaye and Amy Farina have a new band out called Coriky who are just wonderful

@TheJGG don’t feel bad, Bohemian Rhapsody is a masterpiece. I hate when people make others feel bad for liking popular songs.

Thanks! I struggle a bit determining specific music genres, so I wasn't sure if it fell into rock per se. The lyrics are a story on their own and each section has been burnt into my brain for eternity.

I'm not into mainstream music and it's rare that I find actual music that I like, so it's a fun process, building a small library of music.

@TheJGG
While genres are helpful, deliberately categorising music can be detrimental - I think anyway.

Like where would one place Naked City?

Hi.
Have you checked my references about Rock music from DrumMania ?
Maybe you will get some new experiences about Rock music from video games.

That works both ways, have you actually tried the vids posted by others? There’s a lot more “experience” in the vids other people have posted than yours to be honest. Like the one skywake posted of IDLES is a song about commentary on Toxic Masculinity which makes your video game music look shallow in comparison.

Actually I prefer Rock music from BEMANI games as I'm not really fan of Rock music (I am Eurobeat fan) but some of DrumMania songs are really interesting and unique. I have never heard before a very complex and killer Rock songs like DAY DREAM / MODEL DD series / MODEL Fairy Tale series by Mutsuhiko Izumi or Progressive Rock like The Least 100 Sec / Concertino in Blue by Hirofumi Sasaki.
I'm not even a fan of Western Rock band, that's why I don't play Guitar Hero / Rock Band / LEGO Rock Band.

Maybe you will get some new experiences about Rock music from video games.

Dude I’m sorry but this is a thread for rock music and all you’re posting is video game music. Not trying to bash your taste in music, all I’m saying is that it technically isn’t real rock music and was made for a video game.

Plus, I’d say I’m pretty “experienced” with rock music, as I have over 900 songs spanning across multiple genres on my playlist.

Eh ? 😕
How could the Rock musics from DrumMania are not real Rock music ?
There are some DrumMania songs have extended version and the artist who made those songs (Mutsuhiko Izumi) is very talented in Rock music.
He has ever performed his music live in Japan, a medley of his DrumMania musics.
How could Rock music from video games are not technically called real Rock music compared by standard Rock musics that not made for video games ?
What is the differences ?
BTW, have you listen any DrumMania songs I posted here ?
And what do you think about them ?

I posted only DrumMania songs since I only like kind of Rock songs from video games.

Edit: Here is one video of Live performance with his DrumMania song Jet World.

In my opinion, Rock musics can be came from any source, whether they are from standard Rock band or from video games since they are same Rock musics.

Have just been going back through this thread, and there are loads - loads! - of bands on here that I have never heard of

Should keep me occupied over the next few days

If you are into proggy, spacy, out-there stuff, Metaprogramação by Deafkids is a recent one for me, although is a few years old

@Bizaster Nice - enjoy them! The other album of theirs that I've listened to was Room on Fire, though that was quite recently. There's other bands I dig too, like The Beatles, Ween, and Nirvana.

@Anti-Matter I love video game music as well, but Bizaster's asking what rock album(s) and song(s) that are your favorites. That is, songs that are original and weren't made for any games in mind. Music and games are considered their own separate categories, which is why we mention stuff like Guns 'n Roses instead of say, music from Sonic or Mega Man games. Also, didn't you say that you're not a rock person to begin with?

@MarioLover92

About your response to me - I agree, The Beatles and Nirvana are great. I’m curious, what album out of the three that were made by Nirvana is your fav? You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to, and you can mention one of their non-studio albums if you want, too (like the MTV Unplugged album).

As for your response to Anti-Matter - Yeah, I completely agree with what you said. If you’re not a rock music fan, and you’re more of a video game/eurobeat music guy, that’s absolutely fine, but why would you be posting in a rock music forum?

Hey everyone! New question today!

The question today is a double-question:
1. Is your FAVORITE SONG (or favorite song at the moment) by your favorite band?
2. What is your favorite song or album from your favorite band?

For both questions, I have the same answer - my favorite song is Over the Hills and Far Away by Led Zeppelin, which is my favorite band.

@MarioLover92
Oh... I see. 😯
I was misunderstood about the rock musics from actual band and from video games.

@Bizaster
Oh, before that I thought my references about DrumMania songs will be categorized as same Rock songs as from actual rock band. 😕
I didn't know if rock songs from video games are different category as rock songs from actual band.

BTW, there are some actual slow rock songs that I have little interest about that has been featured on video games as cover licensed songs and I prefer the cover version than the original version for those certain songs.
What do you think about this cover version of Robinson by TDK design Inc ?

And here is Robinson original version by Spitz.

Notice, this song reference based on actual band.

Oh, also I have interest with this Rock song from actual Rock band Vanilla Ninja that this song has been featured on DrumMania V.
Liar by Vanilla Ninja on DrumMania V.

Can this song counted as actual Rock song too ? ☝

@Bizaster I'd say Nevermind is my favorite Nirvana album. I have a ton of nostalgia for it and it's just a cool album to listen to, lol.
