6. I liked Meat Puppets
but am I even in the same space of my brain if I'm comparing "Backwater" to "So Alive" ?????

Different neurons altogether, man. :P

13. Let's find out what Wat_Tyler's take on this is!
Even seeing the word "progressive" might set him off! :evilgrin:

Having said that, I have to go with the Meat Puppets; I just never had much use for Love and Rockets.

14. I really liked Bauhaus, but... L 'n' R kind of sucked, except for "Express
However, the Meat Puppets, while not my favourite band, recorded "Sam", which is one of the most amazing songs ever performed.
