Mc5

I'm amazed that this thread is eight years old. But yes, I fucking love the MC5. One of my very favorite bands. I try to listen to Kick Out the Jams before every show I play.

For dub, check out King Tubby, Augustus Pablo, and Lee "Scratch" Perry (he worked a lot with the Upsetters, which might be easier to find).

If you're looking into dubstep, I'd say hold off and get...

Well, Rites makes good bedfellows with the post-hardcore crowd but they're usually just thrown into the emo camp since Guy used to like cry on stage and shit. Or so I heard... Big Black for me hasn't...

Even though some of them have been said already, I'd like to put in my two cents:

Nation of Ulysses
Fugazi
Drive Like Jehu
Refused

They're the essentials, if you ask me. There are a lot of other...

The Pumpkins were a great band, really. Not perfect, but still a great band. I mean, their potential peaked early with Siamese Dream, but they still had some great stuff after. I'll even vouch for...

The first self-titled Red House Painters record is an excellent place to start -- it's the one with the two versions of Mistress on it. After that, I'd try Songs for a Blue Guitar. Not everything on...

As a longtime fan of the Pumpkins (they were my first favorite band), I'd say start with Siamese Dream. It's the easiest of their albums to digest. More or less, I'd say it's their perfect statement...

Depending on how the song's rhythm goes, it often helps to count 1-2, 1-2-3; or 1-2-3, 1-2.

It's similar to count 7/4 (or 7/8): 1-2, 1-2, 1-2-3.

Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" is a great example of...

As a footnote, Between the Buried and Me would go on to cover one of King Crimson's mid-80s tunes.
