>>61896814 While you could argue the same (sort of) for Linkin Park, I'd say it'd be hard to argue that Death Grips doesn't at least tread new ground in terms of underground-popular music and rap trends. It's also generally structurally complicated.
>>61896814 People say this because they're aggressive, are (very roughly) similar in drawing from RAWK and hippity hap, and have shitty fanbases. Those are the only connections.
Linkin Park was a Warner Bros engineered act from the beginning. I don't have anything against those guys personally, but that's what their band is. Safe music for the radio. Their first few albums had no cursing and no songs that even reached four minutes in length, because they didnt want to limit or confuse their target demographic. The one time they tried to go in a moderately experimental direction, they did a big nope and went back to making easily digestible "rawk with rapman your parents won't yell at you for playing".
Death Grips actually worked the tour circuit, has Zach Hill, a genuinely talented musician with lots of respected projects under his belt, and did shit like dropping albums for free out of the blue and getting dropped from labels for making their sharpied cock the cover art. You can critisize that as pretentious or gimicky, but it's nothing like anything Linkin Park & associated acts have ever done.
And just in terms of music, Linkin Park is Limp Bizkit with simpler songs and no vulgarity, and the rap plays it as safe as possible while maintaining a minimum "cool hip hop :^)" vibe. Nothing like Death Grips, who's debut mixtape was a noisy, obscene exaggeration of everything considered offensive about punk and rap.
It's a bad comparison. Feel free to screencap for next time you see this tired, shitty meme
Death Grips' legacy isn't cemented yet. If Bottomless Pit is their last album and it's good then they will without a doubt go down as one of the most ambitious bands ever. what Eno said about the Velvet Underground will be true with Death Grips. the influence is already evident with Cities Aviv, and blackhandpath.
>>61897380 They didn't really form until 1999, spent most of that year pursuing record deals, and released hybrid theory under Warner Bros in 2000 to platinum sales. They basically started out playing stadiums.
>>61896874 it's not that far off though, the problem is that people say this to try discredit them but nah, their angst and aggression is more similar to slipknot's, i feel, both ride and corey are v theatrical but (imo) manage to sound sincere/convincing theyre probably a more fitting comparison than lp also if we wanna get hung up on career paths, at least up until AHIG turned them super safe (iirc - havent listened to that one in years)
>>61897686 Read the article. They consider the start of the band when three of them started mixing things in a bedroom in high school. Half of the lineup hadn't even met and no music produced under the name Linkin Park until 99. I used to be a big fan of Linkin Park as a teenager, I have no regrets about it and happen to know a lot about them. They were some moderately talented kids who got some really really lucky connections.
>>61896814 If you genuinely believe that Death Grips would be considered acceptable and radio friendly by the average person then you are so far removed from normal humanity and entrenched in meta-memes that there is no hope for you
For fucks sakes, my mom listens to Linkin Park
[spoiler]but my dad listens to death grips[/spoiler]
but Death Grips are indeed a little more abrasive, both in sound and image.
I would imagine Linkin Park knew what their audience of "alternative" listeners (who somehow were in the millions, despite being "alternative") wanted and gave it to them. Death Grips knows what it's "alternative" audience wants and flips them the bird. But in terms of sheer musical approach/songwriting and even just straight up sound... they're not that far from Linkin Park. I could see the same kids in 2000 who listened to Linkin Park enjoying Death Grips.
>>61898178 I don't see how someone can seriously think that though. Death Grips is far more abrasive and does some genuinely experimental stuff. Like I said before they have generally similar genre influences but their approach is about as different as it can be.
>>61897873 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linkin_Park >Linkin Park released Hybrid Theory on October 24, 2000. The album, which represented half a decade's worth of the band's work >which represented half a decade's worth of the band's work >half a decade's worth of the band's work >half a decade's worth >half >a >decade
>>61898867 I liked hybrid theory when I first heard it. I think I was ten.
I like exmilitary a lot but haven't ever really gotten into death grips beyond that so I am in no way a death grips fanatic like most of this board
So, what am I then? I'll tell you. I'm a regular guy. I have a regular job, a regular gf, a regular dog and I like to have a glass of wine with dinner once a week for the antioxidants. If you met me you'd say, "hey, that guy was okay" and you'd forget me just as fast. I hope this helps.
>>61896814 Because Linkin Park's negative image is derived from its popularity despite its relative mediocrity and non-distinct sound. Death Grips is not 1/100th as popular as Linking Park. Death Grips is also far less conventional in its approach to music.
>>61899173 The average person probably couldn't tell the difference between the two. If you made a playlist of both groups. No one would notice or think the tracks by death grips stood out as being more creative or interesting.
>>61899344 Look, this isn't like proving god exists. Its just a discussion on which emo band is better the late 90s one or the now one. If you don't have anything to say to defend your choice then don't post. Stop posting.
>>61899238 Oh so what the average person can't tell that Death Grips is much more interesting then Linkin Park. You know why your here It's because your discussing music that doesn't just appeal to the lowest common denominator and actually attempts to be creative.
>>61899238 Are you kidding? They aren't similar in the least. No listener is going to confuse them with one another. Im not saying one is more creative than another, but they dont' sound similar AT ALL. Linkin Park is normie as hell, meanwhile DG's sound is more controversial and abrasive than say, merzbows (only because memes). >>61899313 Yes, a lot actually.
Not really, no. Linkin Park was the natural extension of the Grunge zeigeist of the 90s, Death Grips doesn't get radioplay and doesn't really try to set or follow a trend so much as just do their own thing.
>>61899483 "Experimental" doesn't mean that they were the first to do what they did you retard. Additionally, you're comparing commercial Nu-metal to industrial hip-hop (a more aggressive/abrasive version of it at that). Nu-metal had been popular since the mid to late 90s, and proto-nu-metal had been popular even eariler (RATM) while industrial hip-hop has never been popular, with the exception of a Kanye album, which isn't similar to Death Grips in the least. So not only are they experimental in the literal sense, but in the relative as well.
Linkin Park is better. As an examination of human emotion, as an exhibition of artistic worth and integrity. In all ways linking park achieved something death grips never will. It kept young kids from commuting suicide. It saved lives. Linkin park will outlast and outlive death grips.
>>61899834 >that is precisely what it means actually, sorry No actually, it doesn't. There are few acts similar to death grips, and they haven't cited anyone one of them as influences. >no, i'm not Yes you did, unless you jumped on the line of replies before here >>61898517 >>61899217 >nah, neither quite actually, courtesy of most publications and reviewers that have covered them. >>61899858 The whole point of the thread was to compare them, the person you originally replied to contrasted them specifically. If you want to jump into a thread simply to say "death grips isn't creative or experimental" then its not my fault when people misinterpret your intentions. In fact, you're in the wrong thread.
>>61900069 ??? >>61900122 >replying to everyone in one post instead of one at a time >autism ok m8y >"I don't like death grips!" >"Haha XD they are like [insert universally hated musician(s)] wew lad, day autism
>>61900672 They are as per most descriptions of the band. You're trying to cover for your arguments lack of grounding by passive aggressively pretending that you're right despite your argumentative ground being compromised.
