THIS MONTH'S QUESTION:
Would you rather go to a
bar and listen to 2nd generation disco disc's spun by a DJ or watch a
100% original band perform a mini concert in a club?

A DJ 'cuz the music I like is the music I hear on the radio. I'd rather dance to that than Rock and roll.
An original band
definitely. Because original music is more unpredictable, it makes it
more exciting. Some stuff might stink, while other stuff is good.
Still, it's original and its more appealing.
a band. Probably because the music they play would be top
40 garbage on discs and all of my friends play in bands.
Original bands performing. Because they're original and with a DJ your listening to a pre-mix.

Original band definitely
over disco. I just like performances because its part of the song. It
gives it more meaning then. When they put their heart into it and bring
the song to life, its much better than a recording.
I would much rather see
bands get out and open the eyes with talent. We need clubs to promote
these bands, but in order for that to happen bands have got to stop
doing covers and start their own original stuff.
You have to be a really good DJ. I like regular music performed by people who write music.
I'd rather watch a band, because its more exciting and you can get into it if they're there. It makes it more fun.
My own high school offered
$75 between two bands to split. That's less than $1 per hour. We
found out that a DJ got to do it and got paid $200. That's stupid. I'm
going to tell them their wasting tax payers money. I'd rather see real
people over discs. Real people can give back the energy and the crowd
gives it back and they become one. You can't do that with discs. It's
the difference between making love and ma**********. (The last word has
