Yet Another Favorite Band Thread...
« on: August 14, 2005, 07:50:10 am »
So yeah... What bands are your favorite. I don't want the huge list of all the bands you like, but just those that really hold a special place in your heart. The music you listen to when you're drunk and you can lay on the floor and raise your fist at the sky and just be happy. The songs that let you cry and scream and boast... the music that gives you strength to get through the day... the melody that lets you continue the fight.


For me, that changes depending on my mood. But right now, it's Social Distortion. On the long term though, They Might Be Giants, Iron & Wine, Enya, Loreena McKennitt, Bowling for Soup, and Less than Jake usually cover it.

I'm a rock person myself. Like Xepher, it kinda depends on the mood I'm in too. Things like Alter Bridge, Creed (now Alter Bridge except for singer), Tantric, Metallica, Nickleback, Kid Rock, Lynard Skynard, Velvet Revolver, Disturbed, God Smack, Aerosmith, Journy, REO Speedwagon, etc...

techno, rock, things like that for me.
I don't get a lot of music, but right now, I've taken a huge liking to Scooter. I like about everything else though.
Awesome bands Data :D

Scooter! Ashley just introduced me to Scooter the other night, and now I've got the complete discography. Oh, and after I mentioned that one particular song reminded me of the lemur rave in "Madagascar" she made this. Hilarious!




Right now I'm listening to an album called "Punk Goes 80s." Buncha awesome covers! Although I'm disappointed that "I'll Melt With You" is the one from Sugarcult, and not the one from Mest that was on the Sky High soundtrack.

Going to be really hard to figure out what band I like, isn't it? (Avatar, Signature, etc).

Yep.  I'm one of those Pink Floyd fans.  If you don't like them, you haven't heard some of their good songs, like "Wish You Were Here", "Comfortably Numb", "Money", "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" and "Time".

I also like a few other bands.  Lynard Skynard, Black Sabbath (or just Ozzy himself), Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Queen, The Beatles, etc.  But Pink Floyd's my favorite.  I'm planning on getting their not-so-well-known first ablum "Piper at the Gates of Dawn" at some point, if I get another job (I tutor kids during the school year).
What are you looking here for?

I like the Barenaked Ladies, Bowling for Soup, Enya, KOTOKO, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Ruppina, and Siam Shade.  I'd have to say that those are my all time favorites.

Loreena McKennit, definately. These two aren't really "bands", but are excellent for mood music: Hans Zimmer and Hennie Bekker. :)

Hmm... and I've been introduced to great music by other artists too... so many, so many... :P

Rush. lots and lots of Rush, even if I think each album for the last 15 years has been pitched at frequencies only gerbils and hummingbirds can hear.  Can sing every word on the "Signals" and "2112" albums (and do, loudly, when alone in the car:).  Also trying to rebuild my essential Jethro Tull collection.  Then Pink Floyd, and on occasion, Queen.

--got to listen to some bands younger than me one of these day...

What I listen to really depends on my mood, so I have a pretty broad range of stuff I like, but Better Than Ezra and Soul Asylum are my all time favorites.  

Lately I've been listening to a lot of the Dresden Dolls and Tiger Army, so those are my "newer" favorites.

And my boyfriend got me in to country, so I have determined Pat Green is my favorite of the country genre.

Yeah, going to school at A&M, Pat Green was a local favorite, along with Robert Earl Keen and Cory Morrow. Funny thing is, I move halfway 'cross the country to Steamboat, and over the first winter here, every single one of them played concerts here. Not that I got to go, as I was too busy driving the bus and taking all the drunks home from such things... So glad that's behind me now!

I'm more on the old school tip. I'm into almost everything.
I have punk covers - ultimate fav being Me First and the Gimme Gimme's take on "Everything's Going to Be Alright" and any punk band's take on Cure songs.

My ultimate favfav is, always will be Radiohead. But I have a close relationship to all my Weezer albums and Green Day's "Dookie" album.

My favorite artist is a tie between Erykah Badu and Madonna. Girl power I always say.

Me First have some great covers. I like most of them much better than the originals. I think "I am a rock" is their best cover though.

FYI, Gracey, hilarious signature. Not many people quote Coupling... that show is hilarious. I'm talking the original british version, the short-lived amercian hack version was possibly the worst butchery ever. Really proves that point that England and America are two countries "divided by a common language."
