this looks like a bunch of juggalos grown up, or the kids that wanted to be juggalos but you could tell their parents would have whooped their asses had they done some shit like that. You know the types, they wore all white new balance, and sweat shirts 3/4 of the year and had names like bob, and todd

I'm experiencing a bit of writers block. I write plenty of lyrics and plenty of riffs, but when it comes to piecing the two together, nothing ever catches my ear or strikes me as very enjoyable.
What are your methods of creating songs? Explain your personal process, what works for you. I'm curious and am open to learning how other minds work.
Try to apply what you know about writing your riffs to writing vocal melodies. You can hear riffs in your head right? Try to replace the notes you would normally hear as guitar and work some vocal over it. Once you've got the melody try to re work your lyrics to fit it.
There are a lot of ways, you can make the lyrics match the riff, like in ironman-black sabbath, play some riffs and sing while playing some chords, so its easy to place the words, just listen to different songs from different bands and try to figure out what technique they use

How do i sing like him?
did you even listen to their discography? You fucking imbecile. Swans is a different breed of music, far too intelligent for your ass obviously.
You stupid fucker. Asshole
When his day finally comes, and I'm not ready for it, I predict Rod Stewart will be remembered as the fifth Beatle.
Come on, /mu/, what's your favorite tune of his? I'm partial to Maggie May and Stay With Me, but You Wear It Well is also a charming little number,
What's wrong with Dave Matthews Band?
I picked this album up the other day and love it. I know that it's /mu/core, but I NEVER see it talked about here. Not even in that "best emo album?" thread from awhile ago. Wtf?

Hi, /reddit/ here. Just wanted to share some of my favorite albums. Also can you guys be a little nicer to us? Thanks!
What does /mu/ think of Courtney Barnett?
I cannot begin to describe the disdain I have for this sort of music. To be honest, if I focus really hard on the instruments, shut out the vocals and pretend that they were being sung by someone tolerable and with lyrics that aren’t embarrassing, I can potentially see why this isn’t bad. But the truth is that she is there, she is awful, she is unbearably moronic and she does ruin any little bits of skill that the drums or guitars bring in. After one of my friends declared Barnett his “new waifu” I decided to check this out, and after confronting him about this absolute nonsense, he made a comment along the likes of only enjoying it to impress girls at parties. This album is exactly the sort of think that those teenage girls who listen to “indie” as an image or a statement would lap up. They’ll talk about the bad vocals as “dylan-esque”, and will break into singing quotes from the frankly embarrassing lyrics whenever they can, because they’re SO ME XD, snapping up lines like “I want to wash out my head with turpentine cyanide” as if they’re extremely meaningful poetry. And jesus, I haven’t even mentioned the accent. If there was ever a convincing case for a nuke heading right to the middle of Australia’s eastern coast, this is it. An album filled with nonsense psuedo-meaningful ‘indie’ lyricism, complete with an image you’d expect one of those Sundance films advertised as indie (but actually aren’t), mostly forgettable instrumentation and songwriting, and one of the worst voices you’ve ever heard. Is there anything worse?
What went wrong with his career?
