Isnt there a mistake at the start of "Good Ridance" by Green Day, just when he's playing the first few notes, doesnt he say "fuck" or is that not cos he screwed up? Cos it sounds alright to me, but maybe thats not how it was meant to sound....who knows......

yeah, the little riff at the starts he plays twice, but he only meant to play it once.....rumours are that he was stoned while recording....

he made the mistake twice and it was left in to sound "more real" I wouldn't be surprised if he was stoned while recording..but probably more like just an innocent mistake..

you are not going to believe this, but around 3 mins into "gigantic" (the long outro), dave lovering misses a hi-hat...now that is sad (to spot it !)

At the end of 'Gotta get a message to you' by the Bee Gees when the key changes, Barry goes to do the harmony in the new key, completely fucks it, stops and then goes "woah!" or "ohh!" and it's all just there, on the tape.

In the Original Louie Louie by the Kingsmen, the drummer misses a beat and shouts FUCK at around 54 seconds in. I never noticed it  til someone pointed it out and now its my favourite part of the song

Some people would say the whole of St Anger...I thought I would get that joke in first.

14 years too late

Didn't realise it was a super old thread til after I posted. Then realised that joke would have definitely already been made.

Still stands though. They shouldn't have done it.

There's a video of the whole album rerecorded on YouTube, as if the only thing holding it back is the production. It's not. It's still shit.

The one I heard is a total re-recording, with the purpose of sounding better, rather than like the old stuff. The guy does it all, vocals and everything, because he's some sort of masochistic lunatic.

It does sound better. Not just the infamous drums, but the guitars are less muddy. But the songs are still pretty awful. It's somehow 15 minutes shorter though, so that's a bonus.

There's a bum note on one of my solos on the Cobra Kai album. It annoys me every time I hear it. Thankfully we only sold like 40 albums so I think I got away with it.

St Anger is 14 years worth of shite.

What bothers me slightly is that St Anger and And Justice For All are closer together in age than St Anger and now.

Also, Trujillo is no longer 'the new guy', but the band's overall longest serving bass player.

WOT?

I assume they're so used to having to play along with whatever wobbly timing Lars is going with at any given time that they've forgotten how to play properly.

I played something the wrong number of times both here (outro):

and here (at about 4 minutes):

https://fuckdross.bandcamp.com/track/geller

I can't fucking count, I guess.

You're excused for the Dross gaff. It turned out to be the program we used to record (or my terrible laptop) glitching. It somehow manages to stay perfectly in time , but you can hear a little click where the glitch happens, deleting 4 bars, as it shifts back in to the riff. There was another glitch which shifted Teabags' vocals forward (or backwards, I can't remember which) and again it ended up being perfectly in time, just 4 bars ahead/behind.

Man, there's some horrible sounds being made in the 2nd part of that song. It's excellent.

A related story that is interesting (to me at least) is of Brad Fiedel was composing the Terminator theme... He wrote the melody by improvising over a percussion loop he'd recorded, but hadn't realised that he had stopped the end of the sequence a bit early. As a result, the bars are an awkward 13/16 time signature. But it's one of the best themes ever, so happy accidents and all that.

I was listening to it thinking "what fucking weird pattern was I going for? Jesus christ."

They "fixed" this in T2 and ruined it.
