    Default Cypress Hill samples The Clash

    Have you guys heard that new Cypress Hill song "What's your name (what's your number)?" It samples the Clash's "Guns of Brixton"
    Cypress Hill is catchy and everything, but this disturbs me...

    Does it bother anyone else that Tim Armstrong was at one time so against the "system" that he refused to get a drivers license and a credit card, and then next thing you know Rancid is doing videos for TRL and you can actually UNDERSTAND what they're singing?

    btw, I saw Lars Fredericksen and the Bastards a couple years ago, now THAT band kicks ass. I miss the old Rancid...(but Op Ivy is even better)

    I hated Op Ivy. My old band played with them a couple of tiems. I am not a big fan of punk/ska. I do like the older Rancid btter than the new stuff, but it is not all that different to me. I mean they started getting radio plsy on thier second record. It's not like the whole rock star thing is that new to them.

    Well, what's happened with Rancid hasn't really upset me that much, they remind me too much of one of my ex boyfriends, who wanted to be Tim Armstrong.

    I listen to more indie rock now, with lots of instruments and vocal arrangements. But part of me still likes that late 70s-early 80s punk.

    I find nothing wrong with an entertaining Band Cypress Hill sampling a legendary band: The Clash. Shows they have good taste. What is disturbing, or rather laughable is when fans get all snotty about singers or bands "selling out" or when they crow about how much better they were in the "good old days" The latter is usually followed by some reference to some obscure small venue where the fan viewed the band as if THEY discovered them. Grow up whiners. If bands couldn't make $$$ from their music then they couldn't make music, or they couldn't reach an audience and you would never know about them. That is reality. I'm sure there is some genius who is slaving away in obscurity who few will ever hear of because he refuses to compromise his art. But we will never know, because he never sold out.
