Tokio Hotel - Please Explain

« previous entry | next entry »
Jul. 11th, 2010 | 12:56 pm

I'm currently in bed - I have the plague, I tell you. The plague.

Anyways - awesome friendlist, explain Tokio Hotel to me, or at the very least rec me some songs or youtube clips of their music that I may like them. So far I have heard Ready, Set, Go and World behind my Wall, both of which are so very generic that I can't remember the tune or the lyrics. And yes, I have heard Monsoon as well. I - well, I think they have potential, but at the moment they sound like every other band out there. Mostly I just find them blend - their lyrics, their music are so very simple.

Gods, MCR, and to a lesser extent FOB, have turned me into a music snob. Nowadays I EXPECT sophistication in my pop-rock music, or at the very least some form of complexity in the guitars and awesomeness in the drums. I want rock bands (is Tokio Hotel a rock band?) to get my blood pumping, the lyrics to fuck with my head (Pete Wentz, I have no idea when I decided your lyrics made sense, but fine, you midget, you win this round), to MAKE me feel something. Tokio Hotel makes me want to take a nap, which I suppose, in my current state of ill health, isn't a bad thing.

In short, I don't understand Tokio Hotel - I can see why they would be popular (pretty lead singer), but their music have not done anything to impress me. Hell, they aren't even catchy (oh, Britney, you might be a train wreck, but your songs are so damn catchy). So, dear friendlist, if you can, pimp me some of their music that makes me you adore them. Or better yet, pimp me some music you really like.

Presently, I'm listening to a combination of MCR, Lady GaGa, Muse and Kris Allen. Oh, and some Rihanna.

ETA: perseid, was it you who liked Tokio Hotel? If so, EXPLAIN.

HAHAHAHAHA! OMFG! THIS IS HILARIOUS! LIKE, WTF?!! Were they trying to get onto Transformers? They are such serious little people. It is like they are TRYING to be COOL for coolness sake, and that just makes them kind of blend and boring. Maybe another five years when they gain a bit, um, more skill? They can be awesome, but at the moment they just kind of crack me up, and I still don't feel the need to listen or buy any of their songs/albums.

And um, I have forgotten the tune of this song already.

YES! OMFG! I LAUGHED SO MUCH WITH THE SYNCHRONISED DRIVING INTO THE DESERT! HAHAHAHA!

I think that's what my friends told me - their music got saturated on the airways, and to cope she either had to love it or, you know, take a fork to her own ears. HAHAHAHA!

The gif is HILARIOUS! OMFG! They are kind of ridic.

Tay likes them really a lot, she posts heaps of fic about them. You could probably just scan down her journal for the last six months and find all you need to know about them!

(edit: and just in case, by "Tay" I mean Talya fyredancer)

Wow - um, their music is kind of, um, yeah. Not my thing.

They are, however, adorkable.

Not a fan either, but a few years back a friend of mine pimped the band to me cause of the twins, and even the prospect of goodie twincest wasn't enough to interest me.

But hey, if you like brocest (because I can't for the life of me remember if you do). They have this really gay song about each other. Heh. Personally, I'm just always amazed when I see the lead's hairstyle.

That's the thing - even twincest, brocest (it is kind of hilarious nowadays that I any from of sibling incest relationship falls under the title of 'wincest'. Oh, Supernatural you broke so many of taboos) can't get me interested in them. They are just so blend - time will perhaps make them more skilled and interesting.

I really do like winbrocest. The song was truly gay, but you are right his hair-style is fricking amazing and all sort of ridiculous, but which I mean AWESOME. I'm all for people who can carry it off. (I think the little introduction made me is truly adorable because it is obvious he really meant it - wait, what is his name?).

They are pretty, and he can at least sing in tune, and I can probably like them, but I doubt I will ever like their music. It is like I read Panic at the Disco fics but I'm really not a fan of their music. On the other hand I live and breathe MCR's music, but I'm really not fussed whether there are fics about them or not. I just want to talk about their music - compositions, guitar riffs, solos and such.
