I think Frogstomp compared to Young Modern, is far beyond honest. Obiously there´s such a beautiful work on Neon and Diorama, what is not interesting to judge who is the best in all the SC albums.
Frogstomp had the very first emotion, the australian intro to the american alternative rock. Do you remember aussies being on Mtv on the 90s?? I think Silverchair owns very much to Frogstomp, and they should respect some more this album, especially Dan, who always destroy this album in every interview.
Dan: where you would be, if Frogstomp never existed?
And, more important, in these times of silly pop crap music, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, the american gangsta pop rap, 50 cent, etc..... The rockers need a band, need a LOT of bands, to embrace that deep rock feeling.
That feeling captured in the early 90s when Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Tool, Primus, Tool, Soundgarden, Rollins Band, Weezer, Silverchair, Helmet, ....they all were in the Radio and TV.
Who was the last good new band who rock my mind ?? Wow,..I think that was in 1998. Seriously, the world needs some rock. To gay pussies syssies like Frank Ferdinanz, Kashmir, etc,... we have a lot.
So Dan, grow up your hair, take the PRS green dragon, turn on the Soldano on the dirt channel, and MAKE SOME FUCKING ROCK! We need it desperately.
And, if the time sets correctly like in the past. These next years we will see another rock hero (They appear in gaps of 20 years)...The 70s rocked, the 80s sucked, the 90s rocked, the 00s sucked real deal, hope the 10s bring another rock hero.
