Tonight's flame bait: I CAN'T FUCKING STAND KRAFTWERK'S "AUTOBAHN!"
Edited on Sun Sep-19-04 05:55 PM by NightTrain
It is one of the dullest, most tedious pieces of music to which my poor ears and mind have ever been subjected. Every time I think it's finally going to end, the goddamned thing does on for five agonizing minutes more! :grr:

The only time I'll ever listen to "Autobahn" again is if I'm suffering from insomnia. :boring:

OK gang, I've put on my asbestos jumpstuit. Do your worst! :evilgrin:

2. Autobahn is overrated, but what about their Radioactivity album?
C'mon, give it up for Kraftwerk--pure genius!

3. Well I'd love to flame you, but I've never heard the song before
Sorry if I've disappointed you.

4. you wouldn't say that if you heard seor coconut's version..
Seor Coconut Y Su Conjunto does a cumbia merengue version of Autobahn on their El Baile Aleman LP that is rather entertaining!

9. Well, you do deserve a break.
Seeing as it's another language and all.

8. You have to consider....
... the tune in the context of the times. It was an early attempt at electronica, and by no means the worst :)

Of course, some people like electronic music and others do not. If you don't, nothing of the genre is likely to impress you :)

14. It was one of the pieces that broke ground for minimalist music
On the classical side, think Phillip Glass or Steve Reich.

If you don't think you've ever heard it, remember the sound track to the movie "The Truman Show".

15. Never mind, NightTrain. Work at it, and you'll develop taste eventually.
I have every faith in you. ;-)

16. Have I mentioned how much I loathe doo-wop?
Edited on Sun Sep-19-04 07:27 PM by Screaming Lord Byron
It really is the stupidest, most tedious form of music, no - scratch that, it's not music, it's just babbling. They couldn't come up with a decent lyric so they just made baby noises. :evilgrin:

17. There was a time I liked them
They were great in concert. I listened to their latest recently and it sounded so dated. However, they were some of pioneers with electronica music. So I'll keep them as a footnote memory.
