    Bad Brains

    Discussion started by Cracked Ass - Jan 2, 2002

    OK, they get mentioned enough in other threads, it's obvious that people know, it's time they had their own thread, the BAD BRAINS, quite possibly the best band to ever rattle the earth.
    Many subtopics suggest themselves, so expound on those that stir you most.
    DR. KNOW owns all of you, and has since the late seventies.
    BLACK DOTS seems to have been slept on, even by some friends of mine who otherwise know what's up. This is their first real recording session, complete with tuning noise and chatter between songs, and a couple of numbers I haven't seen on any other album (Redbone in the City, Another Damn Song, Send You No Flowers). In fact I slept on this release for nearly a year, assuming it was a greatest hits-type rehash with 2 new songs from the God of Love time frame. I was mistaken.
    Perhaps an even more dedicated follower can fill the gaps in my discology, if any. I am aware of the following recordings:
    Black Dots
    Omega Sessions
    The self-titled, best punk album ever made which begins with "Sailin' On"
    Rock for Light
    The Youth Are Getting Restless
    Another live album I can't find among my tapes (what is it called?)
    I Against I
    Quickness
    Rise
    God of Love
    ?????????
    Obviously "Rise" is hard for the real fans to regard with any enthusiasm: no HR, cheesy computer art cover, cheesy ballad. But because I worship Dr. Know I find myself listening to this thing once in a while, just to hear his contribution, and I must say the riff to the title track is immensely fun to play on the guitar.

    Why is there only one reply? I remember being in like 7th grade and hearing them for the first time. I was just kinda like huh. Why haven't I listened to this before? When Omega Sessinons first came out it stayed in my cd player for awhile. I refuse to listen to anything without HR.

    these guys are in the permanent top 5 for me. HR's vocal range is just silly and the guitar and bass licks are like listening to coffee. pure tear shit up punk rock at it's finest. i'm much more a fan of the older stuff before they made that metal conversion. bring on BIG TAKEOVER and BANNED IN DC anyday.

    Cracked Ass,have you heard HR's solo project-Human Rights?It's good,albeit a little bizarre...Pay to Cum-that song gets me fucking pumped.Bad Brains will be the soundtrack to governments being toppled.
