He should be on American currency...we could make a 75 dollar bill and put him on it.

Johnny Cash fucking sucks.
9 years ago
Dude.. you should be shot for saying that.

Modest Mouse is much, much worse
9 years ago
The only reason anyone gives a shit about him is because he died a public death. If he died on the shitter in '85, everyone would be asking, "Johnny who?"

fucking reply fail. shit

Fuck you, Sue.

btw, not many people (including myself) try to elevate modest mouse to the pedestal of worship that Cash rests on. It's like you people forgot he made shitty music from 1971 thru 1997.

Not disputing that. Disputing whether it is a deserved label

top 5 crimes perpetrated by stevie wonder in the 80s and 90s goes, subquestion: is it ok to persecute a formally great artist for his latter day sins? is better to burn out to fade away?
9 years ago
Johnny Cash id the man. If you don't like his music you are automatically gay.
9 years ago
It depends. Paul McCartney co-wrote some of the greatest songs in the world with John Lennon. Then he started Wings and fucked it all up. Lennon kept writing great music. So it depends on the artist.
9 years ago
And most people that I know can name 3, 5 at the best, songs by Johnny Cash, and at least 1 is a cover. And they worship him as teh best evar
9 years ago
What about some of the greatest songs in the world written by McCartney..?? You clearly don't know much about your roots kid. Don't think you can just name drop a few people to justify dissing the man in black..

You better learn some respect!
9 years ago
McCartney after the Beetles, umm, Band on the Run had its moment, or Maybe I'm Amazed. What else?
9 years ago
A lot of the great songs that Sir Paul wrote were done with Lennon, who continued to write great music after their partnership ended. I guess it matters whether you like I Am the Walrus or Hello Goodbye
9 years ago
Dude.. I don't want to get into semantics here. We're talking about Cash. You think he sucks, I think you are uneducated in music.
9 years ago
Which is untrue. I am using a comparison. I say that early on, like Paul, Cash was good. But, also like Paul, his quality was unsustainable and that maybe instead of being a great artist he happened to catch lightning in a bottle, with or without collaboration. without rick ruban, this argument would not be taking place
9 years ago
Hmm.. I don't know. If that were the case, we'd have to rule out the creative ability of MOST artists.. So, although I like the way you think, and where you're going with that... I think maybe it has more to do with a "shelf life" then actual potential. We all have our limits..
9 years ago
MOST artists are considered the best ever, or legends, or etc. Which is what I am getting at.

MOST artists are *NOT* considered the best ever, or legends, or etc. Which is what I am getting. My bad on the typo

your irish. Is it hard to beat your wife, drink whiskey, and type at the same time? Frankly, I wouldnt think you had it in you to do it
9 years ago
OK. I'm going to play spelling police, since it is obviously not a typo and you really don't know. The word you are looking for is "you're".

I understand that you aren't very bright. Keeping that in mind, I just want to help you out.

Spelling police = I got nothing. It's science.

"I got nothing"? We aren't even arguing about anything. I could put some effortr into it and pwn your ass left and right but you aren't even worth the time. You can't hang with me.

Haha! Someone had to.
And am I missing something here? I mean, great...Cash bashed out some good soundwaves...but what the fuck was anybody doing deputizing him? I mean...next they'll be handin out badges and .45s to drug-taking, bigotted, crime-committing lunatics...ahhh...shit...yeah, it IS Tennessee...I already know they do that there. (I'm not kidding).

Oh, and STFU 1rish1. You can't even hang with Mr Cooper.

Who the fuck is modest mouse? Is that some alternative pop music band like N-SYNC or some shit like that?

The preceding thread has been immodestmouse's 15 minutes of fame. Fact. Next.

lennon and mccarntey wrote separately
9 years ago
I wouldn't let Mr. Cooper hang with me.
9 years ago
Haha. This thread has gotten all up-fucked.
9 years ago
Alot of Johnny Cash's music sounded very simular..in other words,his vocal stylings were limited.
Mouse,you dont know fuckin shit about music apparently..to say Lennon went on to make good music and paul mc cartney didnt is blasphemous.
9 years ago
its true that a lot of artists's music sounds identical to itself, but you are fuckin right about mccartney and lennon... need i remind anyone of yoko ono?
9 years ago
Seriously.. McCartney never gets enough credit. I am the Walrus?? Sorry... just cause you can ramble on LSD doesn't make you a talented songwriter (not discrediting Lennon completely). McCartney, ultimately is a better songwriter I think. And that fucking cunt-rag Heather Mills stealing 40million from the man! Fuck!
9 years ago
Fuck, Metal... I purposely left Yoko out of the equation, that is a whole other load of bullshit...

Most beetles songs were collaborative. Look it up on the internets. Or, read a book. That might be a lot to ask. And the part where I don't know shit about music, please. At least I state a reason behind my opinions (backed with actual knowledge on the subject) instead of just knee-jerk bullshit. P.S. I hate McCartney not just for his music, but mostly how he did fucked up shit with the Beetles catalogue, like changing the songwriting credits from Lennon/McCartney to McCartney/Lennon after John died. Mega-maniacal fuck.
9 years ago
Ah man.. you misspelled Beatles.. like a total noob. I can't read any further than that..
9 years ago
moistmoose? only about 5 to 10 percent of beatles tunes were collaborations...that "Lennon/McCartney" tag you must be referring to?
a contractual obligation - think "smith&wesson", "bell&howell", etc...
the last song ever "co-written" by those two was "A Day In The Life", and even there it was pretty obvious who wrote each section, dont you think?
(i really dont give a shit about this slap-fest...it was just you, being SO fucking ignorant, that pissed me off)

Modest mouse who?
9 years ago
DIY nihilist band from Washington State. One hit song called Float On. Two less hit songs then Johnny Cash. A lot less 1970's bloated, Rhinestone Cowboy output than Johnny Cash
9 years ago
yeah, hit songs, by dumbass standards that you may be used to..
FACT:
Jimi Hendrix had exactly one #1 hit
FACT:
This song was a Bob Dylan cover
FACT:
Hendrix is still widely considered one of the greatest to pick up a guitar

nuts to your "hit" song standards

BESERKER!

just a comparison. A snarky one.
I really have to quit reply fail-ing. I was just commenting on the perception that Cash has this eclectic output of smashes, when he has 2 great albums and was a musical nonevent for 30 years

71-95. Notice the gap thar. Gotta pay your bills, i guess
9 years ago
Yes there is a gap. It's called having a life. I'm pointing out the fact that the guy you said had just a couple good songs had alot more. He deserves every bit of praise and respect he gets.
9 years ago
so he quit recording? no he put out shit. He deseres praise and respect, but up to a point. So, lets agree to disagree, mmmmkay?
9 years ago
I started looking at the list a little closer and i have come to these conclusions: 1 involved a soundtrack album with 2 other musicians, 1 on an album of interviews, a couple halls of fame, 1 Bible audiobook, and the rest in 2 separate eras comprising 3-6 years each. In 40 years of music. big deal
9 years ago
I won't even argue anymore. You're obviously not getting what I'm trying to say. He isn't remembered because of his public death. He was a great songwriter, great musician, political activist, and a man of the people. Don't just listen to two songs of his and think the rest are shit. And Modest Mouse sucks dick.
9 years ago
that really does not bother me. I would rather faggots did not listen to the music I like
9 years ago
A modest mouse fan calling a Johnny Cash fan a faggot. Yeah, that makes sense.
9 years ago
Modest Mouse, band started in 1993.
Awards-
Won mtvU Woodie Award-category Woodie of The Year (Artist of The Year) for "Float On" 2004. Did you notice the gap there? Oh, and lack of awards.
9 years ago
Dude, nobody has respect for MTV anymore, if they ever did. Modest mouse is just another hackneyed, whiny, uncreative, radio only band from the 90's. In about seven years there will be even less MM fans then there are now, and more J Cash fans. People like talent, don't get upset over that fact.

word, thanks for takin' the helm while i was asleep, beerman...

I just wanted note Cash's acheivements in 1980, 1977, 1985, 1987, 1989, 1991, and 1992 just in case humblerat didn't already notice them
9 years ago
To be honest, mouse had 1 song on the radio. They were beyond underground before float on. I am not comparing their work to Cash. But if you want to use that, it's fine. Make fun of other bands without actually saying why you like Johnny Cash. At least I have reasons for my distaste, instead of foaming at the mouth and repeating the same shit. I don't care if you like my music, but I can at least tell you why U do. Inarticulate jackoff.
9 years ago
musical tastes are highly personal, thats why i do not not bash anothers (your name excluded) and also why i don't have to explain to you how it makes me feel.. nor would i ask how yours made you feel

i just realized that you may have forgotten the true meaning of christmas, i mean, music...all wrapped up in the superficialities that goes along w/pop music
9 years ago
I think I've said why I like about Johnny Cash, now you come at me with one leg to stand on and say I don't know why i like him...I grew up listening to him. The songs he made in 1969 hit me just as strong in 1990. And hey for once I get to say...STFU NOOB!
9 years ago
just a comparison. A snarky one.

don't worry, we all fail at some point.. some more than others
9 years ago
Wow... do something worth notoriety yourself. .. it is not yours to judge if it was just a flash in the pan. .. what have you done that is even a comparison to a shit Johnny Cash took when he was an infant having his mama wip his ass for him. .. Your name give props to Modest Mouse. .. do i really have to piont out how that has no Testodterone influence at all. .. Women listen to that shit at pajama parties. Cash isn't a god but he is a legend. .. have some respect
