THIS IS now the third draft of my "parting shot." These words, after all, are the final ones I will ever have printed in The Cavalier Daily, and thus cannot be taken lightly. This is my legacy to future generations of University students, or so I'm told, and how I present myself in this column is how I will be remembered in the annals of U.Va. history.
You must have heard about it by now.
Heavy metal has very few gods, but that select group of long-haired deities is held in such great admiration that its members can do no wrong. Ozzy Osbourne and Lemmy of Motorhead are two of the better-known members of metal's high priesthood, but Max Cavalera is at least as revered.
Aggression was their middle name.
In the early 1980s a new rock scene began in Maryland when Scott "Wino" Weinrich founded The Obsessed. Weinrich's guitar playing harkened back to the days of Hendrix; you just could not help but close your eyes and let the heaviness flow through you. The Obsessed brought together two clashing cultures in the DC/Maryland areas, the skinheads and the "long hairs."
Aggression was their middle name.
When one looks over the bill for Ozzfest, consistently the biggest hard rock tour in America, one band sticks out like a sore thumb. Between the screaming "new metal" of Static-X, Godsmack and Kittie, you will find Queens of the Stone Age, the newest torchbearers of the "stoner rock" movement.
Since Chumbawamba first broke on to the American music scene in 1997, their ubiquitous one hit wonder, "Tubthumping," earned the band recognition while blurring the line between ska, punk and pop.
Readers of The Cavalier Daily, I have suffered for you. Having never been much of a Violent Femmes fan, I did not know what to expect when I volunteered to review "Freak Magnet," their newest release.
While Charlottesville has developed a reputation for its thriving music scene, thus far that scene has been confined largely to one kind of music. If you are not a big fan of the Dave Matthews Band or Phish, the Charlottesville music scene can seem pretty uninteresting. But when a band like utris steps in and makes Charlottesville its home, people who believe variety is the spice of life should take notice.
Once in a great while Americans take a movie into their hearts and make it an important part of popular culture. They steal quotes from it and use them out of context, hang up posters featuring the main characters, and buy all kinds of ridiculous paraphernalia that will wind up in their attics one day. We hold these movies in the highest regard because they are one-of-a-kind classics.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is now official: Beck has transcended all musical genres.
"Why should people take the time to buy 'Jam Room' online when so many other CDs can be bought in stores?"
Hard rock has a long and illustrious history. Albums like Led Zeppelin's "Led Zeppelin 4," Jimi Hendrix's "Electricladyland" and Black Sabbath's "Paranoid" changed the face of music forever. Along with more modern examples like Metallica and Soundgarden, these artists made a profound impact on rock music by writing inspired, innovative songs that captivate the listener and can be found in every good music collection.
After participating in both Ozzfest and the Family Values tour last year, it is a wonder that Incubus hasn't achieved the same level of stardom as Orgy or Limp Bizkit. And with its newest release, "Make Yourself," the band proves once again that it has more talent than the entire Korn clan combined.
Two years after being expelled from the Soundgarden of Eden, Chris Cornell has returned from exile with "Euphoria Morning."
