Nirvana are probably a pretty easy band for an AI to get its head around to be fair. I don't mean that as an insult to Nirvana, but their music has some pretty reliable elements- The quiet verse, heavy chorus arrangement is reflected in pretty much every song, the general chord progression is often similar, and so on.
If you gave it some Voivod or something I think the results would be a lot more interesting. Actually no, it would get Voivod spot on, their music already sounds like an AI wrote it. You know what I mean though, some really progressive technical metal that humans can barely understand, or something weird like King Crimson.

They were so well known for that basic song structure that they even had a track called "verse, chorus, verse". How far out are we from Nirvana being considered to be four-chord dad-rock or are we already there?

When I was a teenlad I was into AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Rush and all that. Very much considered "classic rock" at the time. Nirvana is as old now as those bands were then.
My worry isn't so much "when do we start calling Oasis classic rock", as it is "when do we start calling The Beatles classical music". The music I listened to as a lad is going to be on BBC Radio 3 by the time I'm a pensioner.

That'll never happen. Folk music like Greensleeves and Scarborough Fair is hundreds of years old but we don't call it classical.

I've been enjoying mom lately. It feels like a big shitpost but it's pretty good for working to. Would.

Is that anything to do with Dad?
I don't understand the modern world.

That's actually got a proper good chorus. I'm not turned on at all.
While I like walls of sound and complete satiation, it does get a bit much. 'Hyperpop', oh dear.

It's a hymn. About cherubim. Its' quite mournful.

Are driving videos inherently relaxing or is it something we learn? I think they got the right vibe for this anyway with a song that feels like coming home:

I feel the same way about cockpit-view flying videos. Could watch them all day; I managed to spend a couple of hours yesterday just watching people start up helicopters from scratch. YouTube is doing strange things to us all.

"Boy, I sure wish I had a surf-rock cover album of the songs from the Pokémon games"
|>>|| No. 12870
This is fantastic.
Surf rock is basically the only reason I haven't sold my Stratocaster. It's my least favourite guitar, just taking up space and gathering dust, but every now and again you just want to smash out Walk Don't Run and FBI for about an hour.

Isaac Hayes - Ike's Mood
A smooth and cool instrumental if ever I've heard one.

I last heard this song 20 years ago on the radio. It's an odd love song from a different time:

I had britfa open on the second display last night and I feel compelled to report that those two chaps were watching the whole time while I had my wank.
It was a good one as well. I was holding in a shit which always makes it more intense, plus you get to have a nice satisfying dump while you're still in the afterglow.

Pressing against your g-spot innit. I find it being the cause of some of my wanks although obviously you shouldn't be holding shits in.

Surprised you don't hear the baseline more often.

Good shout, it's ripe for sampling into a funky disco drum and bass remix. Get some Nile Rodgers style guitar in there and a sexy female vocal.
If I was a real producer and not just some dick in a bedroom I'd be on the phone to a popular rapper right now to make it their (and my) next big hit.

Quite an interesting discography to go through if you've not already and still making music today.
I'm also listening to an advert for lemonade:

I wonder if she was aware that hot gluing your friends would carry an entirely different meaning for some listeners.

This whole album seems to have a lot of dislikes, but I'm not sure why. Maybe it's just Hot Chip oldheads upset they aren't making the same thing they were in 2006. Maybe someone who listens to more than five albums a year can identify if it really is awful.

This is pretty cool. I like the chorus music. Pretty sure it's about sex though.

I like it. Also the lass walked in and commented it was quite summery, unprompted. I've always been a fan of Coming On Strong, more so than their later stuff, but I didn't get into them until they got big, and this reminds me more of 'their earlier work'. The warm, comfortable, consistent poppy beat might be what's turning some people off, but I've not listened to them in 10 years so I have no idea where they've gone musically (despite a colleague sneaking me out of the Bestival 2016 bar I was working to take me to their set for 10 minutes). It's good, doesn't feel particularly special though.

About once a year, I'll re-watch Rebel Sound's performance at the 2014 Red Bull Culture Clash. It never fails to move me to tears. It's arguably the greatest soundclash performance ever, certainly the most remarkable since Mighty Crown took the 1999 World Clash.
There's a look on Rodigan's face at the start that I didn't pick up on at the time, but I think I understand it now. He knew that their sound was unbeatable - not arrogance, but simply a rational assessment of the facts. He knew that nobody could defeat them, because nobody could have worked so hard, because nobody could have cared more. They didn't "give it 110%", they put in ten times more work than they needed to, just for the love of it. It's a life lesson that has stuck with me.

Anyone fancy going for a drive by the canal? It'll be to die for.

Been relistening to this banging choon again. I like the music but I've come to enjoy it dispassionately. It does a fantastic job of capturing a sense of pampered bleakness that pervades urban first world life. Life really isn't too bad, but these sorts of people like to romanticise pound shop gangsterism and make a grand melodrama of their supposed misery.
