The most creative and original band to come out in the last 20 years...easily! Peter Steele is a diety. These guys are way better than any other stinko band or rap jig you could put in. Do it for the goths!

Firt off - I saw Type-O before they even released their first album. Second, I like bands, I love my family.

Ooops - I meant first off!

I love it when morons get miffed and do the exact thing they poke fun at. You my friend are a moron. Did the goth girl comment get to you, or was it the fact that you're still a dousch bag. (That's right, I'll spell it however I want - what are you gonna do?) I don't believe for a minute that you saw TYPE O before Slow, Deep, and Hard was released. That's their first album since you probably had no clue. (Nope, it wasn't Bloody Kisses.) Or should I say FIRT album. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Another tough guy on the computer!

I love how you say I'm not tough enough here on the web. If we met I would imagine I'd end up beating you to a pulp within two minutes. Then I'd kick you while you were down, steal your TYPE O shirt and give it to some kid who might actually respect and enjoy true music. You, dameon, are a weak fool. Sounds to me like your pissed. Too bad you ain't got the balls to admit it.

Matt - you have a problem. Not quite sure what it is, nor do I care. You are a silly little boy and threatening me only makes you look more foolish than you already do. And you keep imagining things my friend, maybe it will keep you warm at night. But really, thanks for the laugh.

dameon - matt - bob, do you guys even like heavy music? I do! and TYPE O are the most creative band still goin'. Who sounds like them...no one. Who do they sound like...no one. PUT 'EM IN!

Harrison - I think the band is great.
Posted by Dameon on Thursday, 05.29.08 @ 07:59am
Type O Negative isn't a very heavy band.. more like Pink Floyd meets Black Sabbath meets Dracula; great band, have all their albums and although the guitars are very Sabbath like, they still sound pretty unique

Hmmm...I can't really say. I know TON has a huge influence in goth music, but I'm not sure if their name is big enough for the Hall. Honestly, I just can't say.

RIP Peter Steele.

Their name isn't big enough for the hall?

Words, words, words. Once we have a serious discussion about the Sisters of Mercy, who wrote the handbook for Type O, we might have something valid to talk about.
Posted by DarinRG on Sunday, 11.20.11 @ 05:50am
So go start a blog and have a discussion about SoM. This one is about Type O and my main point was just how out of touch the hall really is with actual influential acts including Type O, SoM, and many others.

Actually, it's more Rufus with Chaka Khan. It'll probably include her solo efforts, but the bio page and song samples have been more about the group. But more to it, Chaka Khan is a deserving and versatile R&B singer and super who has waited a long time. Type O Negative isn't even eligible for a few years yet. Why rag on her, then? Is R&B not part of rock'n'roll to you?

*superstar, that is.

Wow, I had no idea I'd written that little gem of a drunk post. Apologies to crimghost for being so unnecessarily dickish.
Posted by DarinRG on Saturday, 12.10.11 @ 22:21pm
Love them or hate them no one can deny they had a truely unique sound that is instantly recognisable. Type O Negatives music and Pete Steeles lyrics got me through some real hard times and I love them to death. They really deserve the recognition of being accepted into the Hall of Fame. X

The RRHoF doesn't deserve an act like Type O Negative, much less a contemporary genius like Peter Steele. It would be an insult to have them merely listed amongst so many unworthy acts. Pete is a God amongst insects. I'm proud to be one of the few who truly gets TON, and to also be someone who recognizes that most of TON fans are sniveling faux intellectual peons.

Huh, look at that. My Irony Detector just exploded.
Posted by Philip on Friday, 04.18.14 @ 13:06pm
What does irony mean where you're from?
Posted by Shock on Saturday, 04.19.14 @ 02:44am
I find the dictionary's primary definition to be quite sufficient, thank you.
