The best band ever?

by Chris Randall
 

I'm sitting here working on the graphics for a future AD product, and I've got my iTunes cooking, and I can't decide. Which is the best band ever? Agent Orange or Killing Joke? It's got to be one or the other.


UPDATE: I'm pretty sure it's Agent Orange.

After listening to this about 800 times link [www.spectraphyscs.ne...]">link [www.spectraphyscs.ne...]
I'd have to say Kraft will send the Robots to anhiliate both bands and sample the whole slaughter fest,then create a vst emulation of the whole slaughter fest,soon to be seen as a spoof on musicthing..just me i guess, different strokes for different folks.Happy new yrs!

Having seen Agent Orange live a few times, I have to agree.

My band, of course - the guys who like playing with me.

Damn Chris, you have to ask if KJ or AO is better? Crack is wack and so is that egg nog you are drinking. ;)

Oh yeah, KJ wins hands up. Happy NY.

I dunno. I've seen both bands live a dozen times each at least, (probably a few more than that for KJ) and the quality of their records being equal, Agent Orange puts on a much better show. I mean, Jaz just kind of stands there with his Green Hornet face paint, and shakes a little bit.

So I have to give "Best Band Ever" honors to Agent Orange.

The reason I bring this up is that I had made a heavy playlist for listening to whilst coding, and I had KJ's "Seeing Red" immediately followed by AO's "Everything Turns Grey." Now, that's a great segue anyways, but it got me thinking...

Don't get me wrong, though: of my top five bands of all time ever in the history of music, those are two of them, and I'd hate to choose.

And this is all being said by a man who admittedly had over 24 hours of Neubauten on his player for travel.

I've yet to see either, though. AO has a tendency to play West Coast shows, and KJ, well... Yeah.

I'll tell you what. Give me an iPod with nothing but Tom Waits, Underworld, Neubauten, Agent Orange, and Killing Joke on it, and I'll be just fine, thanks.

Oh, wait... I already have one of those...

Killing Joke...no contest.

as kickass as AO is, let's see how much they rule when the get to the KJ ages.
