no bands arent talented. Playing a musical instrument takes talent, and playing a musical instrument in front of a crowd takes a lot of guts, and talent. Rap includes no talent.

well if you are talking about bands that have LITTLE talent, smoke on the water by deep purple is it. Simplest drum beat, simplest bass part, and simplest guitar riff (not including solo)

casiocore sucks, all they do is turn on a casio keyboard and push the beat button

Go listen to Burn, Speed King, and Highway Star, and then me that Deep Purple has little talent.

What about the solos though? There is some pretty technical stuff in their new stuff, listen to the Wicked End, M.I.A, Sidewinder or Seize the Day. Uber songs (y)

the offsprings music isn't hard to play, but i bet you couldn't write as many good songs as they have!

as for good charlotte, although i hate almost every one of their songs, they are very good at what they do, and i think their new album is really good!
although their first one was worse than eating a pile of hot dog shit!

Blink 182 have no talent whatsoever

Vivica

thats not true as well!

Travis had some really good drum parts with Blink182, their latest album uses really interesting bass, and the guitar... well... thats not so great =|

shows what you know. Even though i dont like them, i have respect for them. The drummer (travis barker) is the most over rated drummer good drummer except maybe joey jordison, but anyway, he is a good drummer with good speed and some good punk beats. Also, the singer plays bass and sings. He is double tasking which is very hard to do for some people. So all in all... they do have talent.

travis is a very good drummer though!

sure there are better, but you can't deny he isn't really good!

im not denying that, im just pointing out that there are other very good drummers out there. but travis is amazing for the style he plays

Vivica

i hear a hell of alot more about travis and joey than i do about portnoy, and he's probably better than both of them!

*Neil Peart*. Yes, i am a drummer, i know my facts. I was saying Travis Barker is the most over rated drummer. Saying he is good, but no where near as good as Buddy Rich (was) Dave Weckl, Neil Pert, Abe Laboral Jr., Carter Beutafold, along with many many more.

all of them are ok... but they're only so respected because of all the kids who are like "wow, double kick, thats so cool!"

none of them are as technical as jordison, and even jordison isn't that fast compared with alot of people.

and NONE of those people are half as skilled with timings etc as Mike Portney!

if you havn't seem Mike Portnoy drum, you havn't heard truely insane rock drumming!

Dude... Jack White is an amazing guitarist and songwriter. Sure, Meg sucks at the drums, but Jack is awesome. His voice is good too.

Not true at all. Andre 3000, for example, is a very talented musician.

totally agreed with Andre 3000! genious!

yeah, hes pretty sweet. I have his liquid tension expiriment drum video. It accupies me for hours.

And i didnt mean all rap is untalented. I meant the people that talk about christal, rims, and have girls in bikinis dancing behind them. The rappers that are just in it for the sex, big houses, and cars. People like eminem are talented. He actually raps about himself, and what is going on in his life, and not about his houses and cars. But yes, a perfect example of rappers with no talent is mike jones (his name doesnt deserve capital letters), all he does is chant his name over and point at spinners and girls ass's.
