Is anyone else a Filter fan; can I get a show hands?

So just for fun,

who is a fan of the band "Filter" who put out radio hits such as

"Take my Picture."

"Where do we go from here?"

and "Hey Man, Nice Shot."

and much more of course.

So speak your minds on the band.

Do you like other bands of this genre?

Where do we go from here?


  1. "Hey Man, Nice Shot," "Jurassitol," and their cover of "One" were all great.

  2. good stuff,

    on my radio stations down here in West Virginia "Hey Man, Nice Shot" got crazy radio play during the 2000's.
    I heard the song was about Bud Dwyer's televised suicide, and after watching the video of it, it makes the song feel so alive (ironically for Bud.)

  3. That's messed up. First I've heard about it, and I just read the whole Dwyer thing. I choose to believe he was innocent just for the romanticism of it.

  4. well, the truth is probably in the grave.
    hey man, nice shot was on the short bus album, which is great stuff.
    But once they put out the Amalgamut, it was one of the first times I really the more polished sound from a band,

  6. I've owned a number of copies of Short Bus over the years and I always remembered it as a good album. I played it again a few weeks ago and the lyrics were sort of embarassing on some songs. I've only heard Title of Record and The Amalgamut a few times but the sound is very different. Though I'll admit I was into "Take My Picture" when it came out

  7. "Take my picture" is a really good song, but it is much lighter than the Filter that I normally like it.

    What are some of the examples of embarrassing lyrics ....oh do continue :)

  8. This particular rhyme scheme from "Dose" stands out.

    I hate it when you preach your case / It makes me wanna stick my dick in your face

  9. intriguing,

    i both smiled and giggled at that line.

    i am so immature sometimes.

    hears the words dick in the face = giggle giggle.

  10. I like Filter. Did you take journalism ethics with Wilson Al? he was obsessed with that Bud Dwyer thang. wish I could have known you, Bud!

    "Take a Picture" is a great song. what is/are Filter doing anymore? and did they form from NIN or Tool? I always forget.

  11. Richard Patrick was in NIN as a touring guitarist, I believe. And someone else was in Stabbing Westward. I think I read that one of the riffs from, "Hey Man, Nice Shot," maybe, was originally from a SW song.

    An interesting fact: Richard Patrick's brother, Robert Patrick, played the T-1000 in Terminator 2 and was the B-list replacement for David Duchovny after he left the X-Files.

  12. yes,
    you mean Agent Dogget ( i am spelling that wrong.)

    I do feel bad for Robert Patrick, because he is still mainly known for playing the T-1000. He just hasn't made a role that was bigger than that one so long ago.

    Listening to that dingdong idiot Wilson talk about Bud Dwyer almost ruined the filter song for me. Wilson and I are not on the same page in the info pamphlet that is life.
