  • My 2007 Review

    Dez 26 2007, 0h48

    Best Band of the Year:

    For me, it's still AFI - nothing will ever change that for me.

    Discovery of the Year:

    Tokio Hotel - absolutely loving these guys!
    The Fall of Troy

    Live Bands of the Year:

    Best live band this year would easily be Nine Inch Nails at Reading Festival.

    Closely followed by Kings of Leon.


    Live Flops of the Year:

    Easily, Red Hot Chili Peppers at Reading.... absolutely awful. Have barely listened to them since.

    Comeback of the Year

    Take That - Rule The World is one of my favourite songs of the year. Loving seeing these guys back.


    Biggest Loss of the Year:

    Steve leaving Placebo - been one of my favourite bands since 1996, and he was a big part of that. Will be missed.

    Best moments in music:

    Nine Inch Nails back in the UK
    AFI releasing their first live album and DVD <3

    I like punk. I like emo. Yes, I like all that shit that most of you pretentious metal head and indie boys think is shit.

    But guess what... I listen to metal. I listen to indie. Fuck it, I listen to Pop and RnB. Just because Metallica and Slayer arent on the top of my charts, doesnt mean that I dont like metal.

    After not listening to Placebo for a while, I just heard Every You Every Me and remembered why they are one of my favourite bands. Not many bands affect me the way Placbeo do.

    Now, I wanna see them again!
