Different strokes, Foghat bore the fuck out of me. Seriously, do we need another blues rock band doing pop songs??
Classic rock wise I couldn't argue against Pink Floyd, Spirit, Pentagram, etc. though.

The whole Foghat thing is a tongue-in-cheek jest. Ok - gimme some Gilmour then. I purposely dialed into a few Laibach "tunes" to see what it was all about. The guy with the Yul Brynner pharaoh headdress (which doubles as a falling coal particle protector) bores the living bejesus out of me. I will say though that Mina is rather hot. I suppose I like my doom and gloom served up ala Sabbath, etc. - there's nothing new with Laibach's ominous soothsaying although I did find a few of their beats off of Spectre rather snappy. For me...meh...it's just ok I guess. If/when I ever feel like subjecting myself to willfully being bummed which will probably be never, I'll opt for some Depeche Mode. :|

Depeche are hit and miss, when they're on they're world class, but I prefer doom with no gloom. Whiners do nothing for me. The Cure is a great example, the music is arguably good, but his voice grates on me.

Laibach are hit and miss as well, but I appreciate the Balkin terrorist routine over the she man goth routine.

I started off as a guitar player, I like electronic music of all kinds but I still think like a rock musician about most things! :wink:
I think you may be guilty of taking Laibach too seriously, there's massive amounts of humor in their routine, but arguably the stuff you might like by them would be the Jesus Christ Superstar record.
If you're not amused or into his voice there's not much hope though. :x

I can say high falsetto's kinda drive me batty, even talented ones, so a lot of great metal is ruined for me. :x
