    Anyone else getting tired of this formula? I listen to the "Rock" stations and it is all I hear...

    (Clean Guitar, plinky plinky)
    La La, La la la
    La La, La la la
    ...

    (Switch Amp to Meltdown Channel, crunchatey, crunch, crunch)
    AAARRRGHY AAARGH AARGH
    AAARRRGHY AAARGH AARGH

    repeat as necessary, maybe a bridge, feedback into the clean guitar and fade...

    I remember the first time I heard that formula on the radio six or seven years ago. Anyone remember which band and song? It was great ear candy those first few times. Now it's just flat out annoying. Kind of like a girlfriend.

    I really can empathize with you guys, I'm sick of "alternative rock" musicians telling me that my music isn't "dynamic" enough and the my chorus's should be loud and the verses should be quiet. Well, to me that's not the true meaning of dynamics.

    Has anyone else noticed that most top 40 "rock" music play the same exact chords for the verse as they do for the chorus, it's just that they hit distortion booster pedal for the chorus and scream a little louder. What happened to writing different parts for chorus, bridge, middle 8, solo and verse.

    I'm sure it goes back further, but the first time I heard that technique was Zep's "What is and What Should Never Be", which blows all others currently using this method right out of the water..

    Like Royston, what bothers me about these idiots is they are using the exact same chords, particularly the I-bVI progression (typically E to C, or D to Bb for Drop D-ers) over and over and over. I never thought I'd actually get sick of hearing an interval.

    Its mainly the record companys/radio station programers..They always milk a style or sound into oblivion..Alot of the time they are only interested in the stuff they see moveing at that particular moment.They dont take many chances!Its all about the bottom line...Oh well what can you do?You just gotta do good work and hope for the best!

    The Pixies used that formula over 12 years ago, and they were f***ing brilliant!
    Aaaaahhhhh....Listen to the song 'Tame' of the album 'Doolittle'...Now that's dynamics....
