I agree, I can't post two of my favourite Pink Floyd songs in this sub, although they aren't very popular:
I think this is just one of many massive issues with this sub. The posting guidelines on here are absolutely ridiculous, and seemingly no matter what you try and post, the mods will somehow say it breaks on the rules and remove it. I've pretty much given up on this sub in general. It's far and away the worst place to try and post actual music that you want to share.
As for what you said in the 2nd paragraph, add The Eagles and Beck to that list. Man... About time someone pointed this out!
Edit: Add Talking Heads and David Bowie to this list.
I'd love to post some Bob Dylan out takes/lesser known songs.
I agree aswell. I think that songs should be put in hall of fame, if they reach the front page 3 or more times or something. But entire artists ? exactly as you said. I doubt many people know The Inner Light by the beatles, Catapult by Arctic Monkeys, or some early Dylan tunes. Yet we get the same songs all the time (looking at you The Less I Know The Better, although I love you) Soon Tame Impala will be banned, with songs like The Bold Arrow Of Time, or Led Zeppelin ever reaching front page...
Side note, free my brotha Deftones
As with all of Reddit especially big subreddits like this people are typically posting for big karma and because of that it’s really easy to post a super famous song that will be bound to get upvotes. While it would be cool to open it up to songs so people could post unknown songs those don’t tend to get upvotes as people dont know them. Its the weird situation of Reddit
Exactly. This isn't /r/listentothis, I don't get why we can't post popular artists on a music subreddit just because they're popular.
I ranted about songs not being put in the HoF when Bitter Sweet Symphony once again scored 100 and that prevented me to post other songs from their great back catalogue.
I tend to agree. I'd prefer songs to be put into the hall of fame, not artists.
Shouldnt it be just artists and not songs? or am i confused by the type of hall of fame as there are apparently multiple
Absolutely agreed. Some of them don't even make sense to be banned, since they were never posted much to begin with (Aerosmith and Santana, for example).
I think we should just remove the hall of fame, because all we're getting right now is a mixture of odd songs here and there and other songs that get reposted like every week.
I’d like to add something else that is annoying as FUCK! Anyone. Try posting a Jeff Beck song to this sub. The auto nod won’t let you, because it mistakes it for “Beck”, who is in the r/Music HOF.
If we didn't have the Hall of Fame this subreddit would be nothing but Radiohead and Tool.
