What’s better, movie or the band?

While I’m sure many of you know of this masterpiece of a movie, and if you’re not I suggest you make yourself aware of it, but many of us don’t know about the band of the same name. Well, let me clear things up. One of them is good, and the other just makes me laugh for 102 minutes.

Please enjoy this small clip of a boy punching a dog in the face, an angry old man with a shotgun, a crazy young man that can’t speak any language, bad lighting techniques, and a labyrinth inside a house.



I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. Although, I hope I didn’t scare you away..


People under the stairs, however, is a really good hip hop duo comprised of self proclaimed break dancers (b-boy) Thes One and Double K. PUTS is an underground hip-hop (alternative hip-hop) band from California. I’ve been blinded by radio-rap,and thought that this was a showcase of the best rap. I mean it’s popular enough to get on the radio so, by that logic, it must be the best. After conversing with people over the internet, notably Ryuu, I’ve understood that most rap on the radio is in fact not the best, and in some cases the worst. Often times lyrical content of said broadcasts would revolve sex, sex,sex. I know sex sells, but this is just asinine. It used to be symbols to allude to sex, but now it’s plainly obvious because half the words in the song are ‘sex’. This alone makes me fear for humanity.

But I digress. The reason I love this group is because all of their songs are comprised of real instruments. What’s more, they’re quite catchy beats. You might have a jazz guitar riff combined with a hip hop drum beats, the bass is stuck in the middle and why not throw some piano in there. That’s why this is my favorite group in this genre. I love their vocal tones, and they don’t sing about generic things!


Now I couldn’t pick, so you’ll have to. You have a choice between the L.A. Song or Acid Raindrops. Hell, pick both if you like them.

  1. Good stuff. I live in LA and my parents’ liquor store is in the area code 323. I’ve been planning on getting into hip hop and I just linked my cousin these two songs. He said:

    [19:18] : mary jane is the only thing that makes the pain stop
    [19:18] : cool line

    Haha, I’ll find some discogs somewhere and pop these guys in my iPod. Thanks for the post. :D
