    If I am honest, and I no alot of u may hate me for this but here im gonna admit it.

    Back when Pendulum's Slam was all over MTV and Radio 1 i was barely 16 and had no knowledge of drum n bass wotso ever. But guess wot? i loved the tune (and the fucking hillarious video) and thought fuck me? wot is this shit? It defo drew me into dnb as i started searching the shops and internet for it soon after. Im sure at the time u wuda hated me thinking "not anova kid hu loves pendulum" and to be honest if i saw myself now i probs wud do aswell.

    Looking back at pendulum's first album though, it was a fucking masterpiece of amazingness.
    the terminal
    hold your colour
    still grey
    another planet
    all fuckking choons to mention a few. And im not embaressed about still liking this album. For ages back in the day i didnt understand why they were hated by the underground cos they made such high quality music and gave the scene a well deserved kick up the arse.

    But i think we can all agree that something has got to em wether it be the muny or woteva, but to listen to any of their new dreary guitar shit actually makes me a little sad that they were once sooo fucking sick and have obv lost their way. I rekon its their rock background, and the general attitude in that side of the busness being to wait until u get signed to a label, then hopefully signed to a major label soon after. Wheras in dance music and esspecially dnb people release their own music if they can and are succesfull enuff. Maybe if pendulum were from London things wuda been different but hu knows. It makes me wonder if that was their plan from the very begining to become rock stars?

    I dont hate pendulm for fucking their credibility, I actually pity them for selling their once inspiring musicallity to the corperate giants in return for being "drum n bass rock stars"

    Safe

    Is there anything left to be discussed on the matter. LOCK IT :teeth:

    I see exactly what your saying, and it's a valid point, but you could have chosen one on the 300 Pendulum threads to bump rather than start another :shrug:

    I never post in pendulum threads, as it's always the same stuff said, and always gets the same replies from heads that don't like Pendulum.

    As i see it, they gave us a few nice tracks, made their mark, showed what was possible in terms of making D&B commercial and moved on [thank god] end.

    your face.
    Can I just point out this person only joined last month & you're all saying 'yawn.' Yeah it's a bit boring hearing the same things but this person doesn't know.
    And before any of you say anything, yes they can search but they obviously haven't.

    And, on the point of thr thread, I AM PENDULUM'S DOWNFALL!

    Thats MC Verse. He used to do Renegade Hardware nights, hes toured with friction, hes done all sorts within the DnB scene.
    But Ive still always disliked him.
