"Hey everybody. If you see someone go down in the pit, help them up. That's what we're here to do, help each other out. This next song is called WAR ENSEMBLE!!!: "

Those last two words screamed at the top of his lungs like a madman as the band kicks in...hilarious. hee hee

nice
and yes, i did just pick up Decade of Aggression for the 3rd time in my life. The talking to the crowd is pretty funny. He has a soft spot in his heart for mosh-pitting youngsters and apparently the military. Some of those songs must have been insane to see there. ANGEL OF DEATH!! screamed at the top of his lungs would have made me go crazy. I actually listened to both discs at the Basin on thursday. The trouble starts when snow gets crappy and I dedicate my time to the park and Kickers at Loveland, that kinda music makes me try craziness that should not be attempted. Thats the goal for my playlist i guess, to go crazy.

quite obviously you weren't alive when Led Zeppelin were actively making music. during that time, nobody who knew their music would have agreed with you.

I would guess that you're no older than 25. am I correct? whatever the case, you probably know Zeppelin and categorized Zeppelin based on how you got introduced to their music, rather than what they were like when they were making live music and still in the studio working on something around or before Presence....

but anyway.

what you like and where you ski would make a difference in what I would suggest. I like Spoon's Gimme Fiction.

I saw some of what I listen to... here's a few more for ya: (any of the below bands have multiple songs I could put here... duh...)

1. Rage Against the Machine: Bulls on Parade
2. Lenny Kravitz: Are you gonna go my way?, Fly Away
3. Godsmack: VooDoo
3. Doobie Brothers: Black Water
4. AC DC: Moneytalks
5. Korn: Freak on a Leash
6. Metallica: The Memory Remains
7. Wings: Live and Let Die
8. Warrant: Cherry Pie (ok, maybe this one isn't a band with multiple good songs LOL)
9. Rob Zombie: Dragula

And the best mogul songs in the world:

Limp Bizkit: Rolllin' (either version, even if this is too "not Rockish" for you)

and the 2 other most apt bump songs ever, for me (Blur was already mentioned, but I'd list it otherwise)

Phish: Bounce Around the Room

House of Pain: Jump Around


Again, you can let the standards slide on the last 2...

Hope this helps add to your list...

yes, im 25, i said that earlier genious. but i still must disagree, that LED ZEP cannot, in the grand scheme of things, be considered hippie music. sure, when they were recording, they were doing whatever everyone else was doing, but what transpired, was much different.

id have to say, when Zeps albums were released, so were many genre's of music. inspirations for bands......

same thing i was trying to explain earlier, so.......this instead

point being, the definition of hippie has changed, like it or not. im not trying to date anyones age or anything, but take the word f-a-g for example. at the same time that hippie meant your definition, that word meant ciggie. times are a changin i guess

I dig music which invokes fluidity, smoothness, and flow.
hey- that's just me.
I love social d. much of the time, but on the snow, gimme the cranberries or depeche mode. (although the pogues' "summer in siam" is a swell hill-ditty)
but then, i don't pole plant......
LA hardcore? Hey, cool, an old punk like me! That's nice to hear, because we're a rare breed, especially the ones that ski. I grew up with the guys in SNFU. Name dropping aside, to tell the truth, I don't listen to anything whilst riding, whether I'm skiing or skating a pool. It all just dissolves into the background as soon as the task at hand (ripping!!) IS at hand anyways. Besides, I always thought that if you can hear the music while you are riding, you aren't focused or intense enough! But, then again, not too many people ski like Henry Rollins sings either; but I do....

Vlad, you can't find fluidity in "Jump Around" or "Bounce Around the Room"? The Cranberries give you flow? LOL That's a good one!

Probably bc since you weren't raised in the 90's like some of us, you have to diss it instead.

Then again, maybe it's your laxative acting up... depouche bag mode? give it a break already! Seriously! You bring plenty of ski wisdom to me which I appreciate in many other threads, but cmon!

LOL Give "angst-infused, choppy" music a try. Really, if you are skiing to the music, you aren't paying enough attention, but I'm sure you already know that, oh great Impaler!

Cro-mags on the same bill as Run-DMC? wow!

Cro-mags are one band I wish I saw, I have bought John Joseph a beer at the bar at the end of St. Marks buy Thompkins. Can't remember the bars name. At least the guy looked like him and said he was.

No way HardCore but Architecture in Helsinki - Do the Whirlwind, is something that has been playing in my head while I ski.

roger on The Strokes "Is This It" and Interpol "Turn on the Bright Lights" but I don't really like either band's 2d album. Interpol's 2d album redefines the cliche of "sophomore slump" and loses all the atmosphere and tension that made the 1st album so good. the 2d one is so lame and radiio-friendly-dumbed-down that it could have been made by Styx or Foreigner back around 1982.

so, YOU are the final arbiter, eh? wow. how do you handle that grand responsibility, being the final word on what a word means, I mean?

dude you can call a crippled lesbian "hippie" in your world of definitions, I don't give a flyin' fork. at 25 you aren't wise enough to know that what you know isn't much and what you don't overwhelms you every waking moment.

when you start seeing the world through the eyes of others then you can tell us what is the "meaning" of a current slang usage of a word that's had accepted definitions for a long time, longer than you've been alive.

slang isn't necessarily the evolution of language, it's more like advertisements, shillery, puffery. its use can't be taken seriously, so its impact on our language isn't really there, not unless it moves from such token fleeting usage into permanence.

and from the perspective of permanence, what you call "hippie" actually is Trustafarian Poseur Wannabe Who Romanticizes Woodstock and "the 60s" and Feels Deep Envy at Being Born Too Late to Have Partaken in Historic Hippie Events.

that shoe, brannen, is adjustable to your feet. wear it.

PS: phag didn't mean cigarette in the USA, Barney. jeezus, and you pretend at being our resident etymologist? bah. be gone, poseur.

so basically, you are saying i shouldnt claim to be a "know-all" on such a topic. i agree, since you have made it so clear that you are the supreme knowledge bearing being on such a topic. your insight is appreciated, but you are claiming a level of knowledge and superiority that you must have coined most phrases mentioned. i sometimes forget that inernet threads are soo factual, and opinions are not welcome. im not claiming to be wise beyond my years, or even near maturity of my years, but i am claiming my opinion on a subject. i just cannot categorize led zep in the same genre as THE BAND. it will never happen. no, i wasnt alive during their prime, but yes, i have been alive long enough to appreciate their music. as for missing the 60's and 70's, sure im kinda jealous. but drug use and sex and so on have been just as rampant in my generation. at least i still have a glimpse of youth left and a ton of years of skiing to go.

and the pogues are sweet too!

brannen,

creating a scarecrow and defeating a scarecrow might soothe your injured ego pride, but let me tell you,

I am not the font of all wisdom. I simply know more about "hippies" because I was alive and intelligent and aware during the "hippie" era. Led Zeppelin were a current working musical group while I was a young guy.

you pretend that your "hippies" are the same as the original ones. for many reasons, they cannot be. the most obvious reason is that they're about 40 years too late. your "hippies" might as well claim to be World War 2 veterans, for all the genuineness they carry.

A guy at Alpental the other day was doing this, singing the "Ode to Joy" from Beethoven's 9th Symphony. He didn't know the words, so he was just singing "La la la la..."

However, my husband and I used to sing with the Boston Symphony Orchestra chorus, and we DO know the words. And we can sing really loudly - full-voice and operatic. So as this guy cruised past us, we picked up the rest of the verse with:

"...Wir betreten feuertrunken,
Himmlische dein Heiligtum.
Deine Zauber binden wieder,
Was die Mode streng geteilt;
Alle Menschen werden Brueder,
Wo dein sanfter Fluegel weilt!"


It was fun. I should really remember to sing more on the mountain, especially when I'm a bit freaked out by stuff...
