    Faith No More

    Epic has no business being this good

    #2
    Epic is actually one of my least favorite songs by Faith No More. It's not bad, but they have so many much better songs.

    Such as...

      Epic is fine single for the album. Though my favorite from The Real Thing is a tie between From Out Of Nowhere, Zombie Eaters and Underwater Love.

      And Angel Dust is FNM's strongest album. It is difficult to compare any of their albums since they all sound so different to each other.

          One of my all time favorite bands.

          I bought The Real Thing in like 1997 because I knew I loved “Epic” and “Last Cup Of Sorrow”. I was really ignorant to their music outside of those songs. Loved The Real Thing and a couple months later picked up the What Hits? VHS and got so confused. I actually thought they changed singers between Real Thing and Angel Dust. He sang different and looked totally different. I remember jumping out of my bed and going to my computer to look it up because it caught me so off guard. That VHS turned me into an FNM freak and the next day or so I went back and bought all the CD’s.

          I can’t pick a favorite between Angel Dust, King For A Day or Album Of The Year. I love them all equally and they’re forever cemented in my 16 year old mind as being absolutely amazing. What’s funny is that I’ve never learned how to play any FNM songs outside of “Ashes To Ashes” because I thought that riff was so cool and “The Real Thing” because we were going to cover it in a former band. We jammed the music a bunch of times but that’s as far as that got. That was one of the first drum beats I learned that made me feel like I could actually play drums, too. It’s generally the first thing I play when I sit behind a set of drums.

            I guess it comes down to personal taste. I do like all of FNM's albums, but for me, Angel Dust is hands down their best by far. Every single song on that album is just amazing. The Real Thing, King for a Day, and Album of the Year are all great albums, but I just think that Angel Dust blows them all out of the water. Of those, The Real Thing is my least favorite, and part of it is just that I kind of feel it's the most "dated" of the bunch. And that's kind of odd in a way since I feel the Mr. Bungle demo that got Mike Patton his position in FNM doesn't sound dated at all (with awesome songs like Mr. Nice Guy), but maybe that's just me. It is a personal taste kind of thing, after all.

              I think the debut is their best, and by a country mile. There isn't a duff moment on it.

                    The one with Chuck Mosley, or the one with Patton?

                      Chuck Mosley. I like just about every track, and Mosley is a pretty funny singer. And some of the lyrics on it are great.

                      "Just like that time you tried to teach your nephew to fart. He couldn't do it. Push!"

                      Who the hell teaches someone to fart?

                          I do love that Mike Patton has had work in film as a composer. Composing to me seems to be extremely difficult. He's not just in a band that got into the limelight for a short while, but also composed music for some movies. The last one he was credited to is 1922 which is a must watch.

                            Not to mention the other 342 projects/bands he's in.

                                I like Patton, but Mosley is what made them really unique and super cool. I agree with Lee.



                                Song is so fucking good.

                                    I love Angeldust....always will. King For A Day and Album of the Year next.

                                    We used to cover Surprise You’re Dead off of The Real Thing and Digging the Grave and Gentle Art of Making Enemies off of King For A Day. That was about 20 years ago. Love FNM.

                                      What a tune!

                                      Got really into FNM in my first year at uni when I fell in with some megafans. Saw them live at Nottingham Rock City on the Album Of The Year tour and almost died from the heat down the front in the crowd. A mate and I wrang our sweat-sodden longsleeves out onto the pavement after the show, revolting. I got one of Billy Gould's triangular plecs at the show. None of us had been expecting five dudes in suits.

                                      I've liked every incarnation of the band I've heard. Mosley was awesome, too, just different. The band was very different from everything else I was listening to, but I recognised some of the parts of the puzzle and went on to explore others.

                                        Awesome! Never seen them live. I would’ve love to. I’ve gotten some people in FNM throughout the years. I feel like they’re one of those bands everyone should know. Also, a huge fan of Patton. I have a lot of Mr Bungle, Fantomas and his solo stuff as well as his work with Dillinger (one ep...huge fan of Dillinger, too). He’s awesome.

                                          One EP, yes, but it includes one of my favorite songs he's on.

                                              I still love it.

                                              One meets FNM fans out in the wild still. The original ones I ran into at uni included a disproportionately large number of attractive young ladies, which certainly helped the band's cause, as the gothic/COF-fan metal girls were not my scene at all. Many of the former gaggle were really into Patton, and I too sometimes wore a goatee, a hangover from my earlier teens, infatuated by the style of the infant MTB race scene (RIP JMC, you solid-gold ledge!).

                                              When I first moved to the Hofftoberfest I auditioned for a band that claimed to be musically very open (the singer meant he wanted to copy Muse, as it turns out), the drummer mentioned that he liked Faith No More and we quickly and very excitedly busked The Gentle Art together (I don't think I'd taken a wah, I doubt it, I'm too stupid to use one anyway). The singer and keyboarder (bassist was absent, singer played in his stead) looked at us as if to say: "What the fuck do you think you are doing? And are you fucking finished?" They then kindly said "We've no idea what that was." I didn't get the call.

                                              Like the Murphy's, I'm not bitter. When I rang for the Cyrence lead guitar gig I was asked "So, how many Marty Friedman solos can you play?" I stammered "Uh, one very short one, I think?!" completely shat myself, and then heard "Really?! That was a joke, man!" Most excellent times then ensued. The singer wore a Wyld Stallyns shirt at every opportunity FFS. How could it not be awesome?! Still gotta learn some Friedman solos properly.



                                              (Post about FNM turns into post about Holy Wars because MM.org. Tim, singer of Cyrence, is also a man of culture and enjoys Faith No More, for anyone wondering.)

                                                I remembered during my high school days where everyone played guitar but nobody wanted to play bass, so I took it up and ended up playing with every band. One of the first songs I had to learn was King For A Day and Caffeine, and I first thought; these pricks threw me at the deep end.

                                                I'm glad I did it though, it made me pay more attention to bass, and realised how Billy Gould is a great and underrated bassist.
