... but lately I've switched to more ambient bands like Icelandic group Sigur Ros and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.


There you go, I've seen both of them live.
I've Seen sigur ros twice, once for 8 bucks, once for 80. and 5 years apart

Same's gonna happen with dragonforce when they get bigger than they already are... sadly



Nice. Did you see them both at the same time? I heard about a Sigur Ros and GSYBE! concert in 2000 (or maybe 2001? I can't remember). I wish they'd come down south, instead of only touring in Northern America and Europe.

I really like new indie stuff like Kasabian and Bloc Party. Old school punk like The Clash and the Sex Pistols are cool too...and classic rock like The Who and Led Zeppelin are awesome too.

Boy, if I were a few days earlier, Sponge wouldn't have had that little out burst.

Yes, the Beatles are one of my top rated bands. I listen to them frequently as well as Elvis Presley. Both of which provided a major influence on rock music as we know it.

Acutally, I'm a very well-rounded listener with the exception of modern pop/punk rock. I can't say I listen to anything after 1995 except for Tenacious D and Nickel Creek.

However, my heart lies with Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, The Who, Queen, Donovan, Jefferson Airplane, Fleetwood Mac, Cream, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, and Prince (he began in St. Paul and I'll be living there next year, so I'm going to frequent the club he began at). I enjoy the prog rock bands as well (Styx, Rush, etc.). And then there's classic '80s pop with Jackson and Prince. That set the standard, but I never carried over my listening to the late '90s - '00s.

I'll even listen to classical music too, because I've had a good exposure to it through my church's music group, my high school concert band, and my family. Favorite composers here are Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Handel, and Gliere.

Holy shit, I would've eaten a pair of scissors covered in battery acid while coloring myself with a extra-toxic fushia sharpie to attend that concert. Or just the price of gas plus $20 for tickets.


Ska is one of my current phases; the style is peppy and never seems inappropriate.

Then again, Broadway showtunes display a variety of subgenres and numerous abundently-talented performers. Plus, their 'concerts' tell a story.

Bah. It's difficult to discribe musical interests without giving a huge link that would list my entire history of listening, and the task of choosing just one branch on the huge melodic redwood is just plain impossible.

This is a hard topic for me to give a straight answer for. I have a very eclectic taste in music. I love heavy metal, whether it be "Metallica" or my friend's now defunct band "Scorched Earth Policy", but I also like every other genre of music that is out there. A better way for me to post in this topic is to say what I don't like. Country and western music do absolutely nothing for me, save for a small handful of songs that came out over the past 5-8 years. The other main genre that just irks me is any Christian religious music. I may never understand why, but it drives me crazy to hear preachy music, the kind that says the same thing over and over again for 15 minutes!!! I haven't found a single Christian song yet tat I can tolerate for more than 3 seconds, and they seem to be the only type of religious music that does this to me. I have no problem with Judaic, Pagan, or any other type, just Christian. I can't explain it. Just the way I am wired.

Yeah, as I mentioned the concert kicked ass. The only downside is that I can't stop listening to "Beer" by Reel Big Fish.
Minnestoa actually has a decent Ska scene. Chicken Poodle soup, The P.Laquers, and such are all sweet local bands to see.

Must be something about Southern MN. Up North, we have a lot of folk music. Maybe that's Bob Dylan's influence on the region (he was born in a town 2 hours north of me). Anywho, I've seen some metal bands around here, but that's about it other than folk.

Wow... Thirty eight post and counting. I thought this thread would have died off already. It sure is good to see that there is still a taste for good music out there. Again, to anyone who voted but could not post a vote in a section they wanted to do, I apologize for not getting every type of music in there. So if you cannot find your style, just tell us about it in a post along with your favorite group or band.

" Description"

As for me, Metallica is my favorite band of all time.
If any body does not know who they are please click this. http://youtube.com/w...earch=metallica

Meiser---- B)


Edit--- Dark Shrimp I am very sorry that I forgot to put Alternative in the mix.


Heh, if you don't know Metallica, you don't deserve a post in here.

Deep breaths... Deep breaths... ok, I am amazed. Not a single one of you people even mentioned the greatest band of all time, the ones who breathed life into the style of rock and roll, The Beatles! Common people if I am the only one who like the beatles here than man in my oppinion you guys have no taste in music. How can you not like them? Almost all of their songs are amazingly well written and preformed. They basicly started rock and roll! One could argue that it was elvis but he probably didnt write his own music and really had almost no skill. All he did was swing his hips around in a suggestive manner but the beatles were truly talented musicians. There would be no Metalica or motorhead or any other of you insanely cool death metal, blood-spitting, drug addicts without them. So common guys, maybe they are a little old and maybe there music is dated but you gotta at least mention them in this topic if you chose rock or metal on that poll. (you probably figured this out by now, but I chose rock)

-sponge


Anyone who knows me or the size of my library(100+GB) knows not to fuck with me on the subject of music.
Now, if I am out of line as to TIS' guidlines for music threads let me know and I will edit. I am not dissing any band or any sytle of music (even though I don't like much other than metal, I respecct other people's choices(except genres like Opera if that's even a genre)). I would merely like to jump into healthy debate as to the roots of metal. Of the many hundreds of sub-genres of metal, few date before Napalm Death, Black Sabbath, early Ozzy, etc. I don't think that bands like Napalm Death and earlier grindcore were at all influenced by teh Beatles(If you think otherwise, please inform me). Napalm Death in my mind is one of the most pivotal and influencial bands throughout almost any sub-genre of metal. They've evolved in so many ways from there <1 minute grindcore "What the fuck is he saying" speed metal out to so many other branches. A shitload of metal bands (not the mainstream that this thread mainly reeks of(Not that all mainstream metal bands are bad, but so many better ones are so unappreciated by today's typical teen "goth" or "metalhead")) have been influenced by members of Napalm Death and some were even started by them.

Many argue that Black Sabbath was the origional metal band, and I disagree. In my mind they are closer to hard rock than to anything resembling metal. If you choose to classify them as metal, I can understand where you come from, but really their early stuff is so different from what I consider metal that I just can't. From this, I don't consider them the most pivotal or influential band in the metal genre, but yes, I do respect them as one of many important influences.

As for my favorite metal bands, I can bet that if any of you have heard of any of the metal bands atop my playlists for the past few months, it will be a minimal number of you and you won't have heard of many of the bands.

Some such bands are:
Persefone
Zyklon
Panzerchrist
Agalloch
Amon Amarth(arguably my favorite release of this year "With Odin on our Side"
The Project Hate MCMXCIX
Shade Empire
Sworn Enemy
Any band that Devin Townsend is involved with
Any band that Don Swano is involved with

If any of you like metal, check out any of these bands, and I can almost guarentee that you will not be disappointed. Sure, if you only like Thrash Metal, you won't like a band like Persefone since they are more Progressive/Doom Metal, or Agalloch who is Folk Metal(Among others).

Sorry if this post is way too long, but music is probably just about my favorite thing in life....

Oh yeah, I've been listening to Steven Seagal lately too

Edit: Sorry for the post, didn't realize it was so old before the post before mine.

PPS:
After thinking it over about the Beatles, I guess I can adknowledge their influence on metal of today. Stay with me on this path The Beatles>Led Zeppelin>Black Sabbath>Death>Napalm Death(I merely add them because of my previous statement). So yes, the Beatles in some distant way would have been influential or a necessity to the development of modern metal bands, but I don't think that if the Beatles had never existed that there never would have been metal.
