"How do you want it" I think is my favorite from Tupac. It's hard to decide.

Mine is "Dear Mama" followed by "Changes". He wrote "Dear Mama" while he was in jail in 1995.

Yeah, Dear Mama is good. I loved Changes.

The thing I liked about Tupac was his wit, rythm, voice and lyrics. Perfect combination. Ice Cube had the same thing going for him.

Actually, (nerd moment coming), Boston's self titled is #1, and Guns N' Roses' Appetite For Destruction is #2 for debut albums sales.

Cube had just as much talent as Tupac. Only difference is Cube focused more on bashing cops while Tupac rapped about his life.

It was(maybe still is) #1 for rap albums. I wasn't sure if it was #1 for albums in general as well.

GNS I believe though. They were pretty big at the time.


Debut albums mean nothing because if you ask people who they prefer between Guns N Roses and Boston, we all know what the obvious choice is going to be.

Actually, I don't know too much about Boston. I think they had a few good songs so I shouldn't judge them if I don't know too much about them.

I think you're thinking of a different band, Boston was a solid rock group. I don't think they had any saxaphones either but I can't be sure.

"More Than A Feeling" is the only Boston song I know. I'm sure most would prefer GNR over Boston.

I think you're right. I looked them up on Youtube myself and found this link.

I remember that song and liked it. I had them confused with some other sh?ty group. My bad.

I'm totally obsessed with this Japanese rock band right now called "Maximum the Hormone".

3 of their songs I can listen to all day:

Maximum the Hormone - Zetsubou Billy (The chick drummer looks so hot dressed all goth. Also, this song is based on the anime "Death Note". When everyone dies, they're being killed by "Kira" (Japanese pronounciation of "Killer"))

Maximum the Hormone - What's up, people?

Maximum the Hormone - Koi no Megalover

Bonus:

Maximum the Hormone - Kuso Breakin Nou Breakin Lily (At around 2:30 into the song, the guy is rapping/screaming so loudly that it sounds like someone recorded his voice and is playing back a recording of it while holding down the fast forward button.)

Maximum the Hormone is the coolest name ever. I've only listened to Kuso Breakin... but it rocks. The transitions between ska and metal is awesome. I'm addicted.

Do you have any CD's by them? Can I find them anywhere in the U.S.?
