NIN Vs Emo
FMQB reports: While [Nine Inch Nail's] Reznor seems happy with his own music, he's still an angry man when it comes to other acts out there. Talking to Rolling Stone, he ranted "Emo screamo! (which the magazine describes as "oddly Dr. Seussian") If I happen to accidentally turn the radio on… I literally can't tell the difference between one of 20 bands. Either I'm getting old, which is a fact, or I'm turning into my dad! I wonder about the person that's in a band, the young kid who just got signed or is trying to get signed - why is he doing it? Is he trying to change the world and do something different and express himself… or is it because they want to f*** Paris Hilton and be photographed outside trendy restaurants?" [see full story for some really good info on the forthcoming NIN CD which undoubtedly won't sound like the 20 odd emo bands out there.] Reznor isn't alone, The Used also blasted Emo in a recent MTV interview. "We wanted to say [no] to the genre of music that's eating us all alive right now - emotional screamo." So says The Used frontman Bert McCracken talking to Mtv News about his band's next album, which is supposed to be out in March. "We want to establish ourselves as something brighter than just this dimly lit singled-out genre that's going to fade away in a couple years. We're just rock kids…."- Click Here for the Full Story
