I Think I Am

Going To do random songs with singers who have bad vocals. I think most Know I love punk music. Sticks up for the small guy and sticks it to the man. Not my main reason, just what seems to be associated with the music. Oh believe me, I love that attitude, but what I like more is the down to earth spirit. We are not better than you. In fact, might be you are better than us, please come join us to make us better. Some may say that is sad. I say that is the coolest thing I have heard because are we all not trying to improve our lives? So if you hate that last sentence, this post my not be for you. The song most definitely not. Bad vocals to what they record these days in mainstream music. Of course, most know live recordings do not sound like set recordings where they can fine tune all the sounds and make everything perfect. My reason to love this. The world is messy and not perfect. Nothing is pretty or unique unless you count the scenery from a birds eye view. Why does music need to be so neat and perfect? Listen to the enthusiasm and passion. The message might have something to do with it also, but does this country really care about morals or ethics anymore? I would like to hope so.

I tried to listen to the whole song but I couldn't, sorry. It is true that live performances can't be perfect and they are usually worse than recordings. I appreciate the passion but if you don't have good vocals it is best to find another singer and just write the music which was actually good. We should know our qualities and try to improve, I agree. But for example, if I couldn't do math, I shouldn't be an engineer. It would be nice to have it as a hobby but not a professional licence to build houses.

I agree, but we all also have different tastes. Like I am to point where I am just fed up with a lot of mainstream songs because they are so polished and so perfect. It takes the originality of the raw sound out that makes other musicians want to try to do something different. Thus making music in general fake and generic sounding.

@crossbones27 That's true, everyone has a unique personal taste! These guys are making great music, I liked the song. It's ok not to be perfect and no one is perfect in reality, in my opinion their view of success depends on their professional goal. If they want to express their passion through music, they are doing great and they will have their loyal fans too. But if their goal is to be as popular as the polished and perfect musicians, it will be harder to achieve.
