  • The Music Thread

    What do you listen to??

    Okay, so I am old and blunt, I'll say it for you, I dont like country music, hip hop, rap crap (which really isnt music), or the like...and I do like classic & hard rock ('oldies' for you youngsters) :D

    Faves include:
    Rush, Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Styx, Boston, Black Sabbath,
    Dio, Judas Priest, and many others.

    For newer modern bands I like:
    Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, Alter Bridge, Staind, Saving Abel, Back Door Slam, and more.

    Chick bands: Heart!! Thats it. lol... in fact if you want to hear any live Led Zeppelin tunes performed these chicks do it well....plus Nancy is hot playing guitar. ;)

    Bands that seem not to fall in any of the first catogories:
    Joe Satriani, Dream Theater, and various prog metal.

    Genres that I enjoy include:
    Blues, blues rock, 60's-80's hard rock and metal, classical, jazz, prog metal, alternative, but mostly I like plain old unvarnished blues based guitar driven rock n roll. I am a huge fan of 'cover' tunes. I collect rock tunes played by artists other then the original band/writers.

    When I was a young fellow I worked for a 'metal' band. They played progressive style rock in the form of Rush but with a Black Sabbath, Ted Nugent, & Yes flavor. In addition, they covered Rush, Sabbath, Nugent, Hendrix, Joe Walsh, Van Halen, and many others.

    I drove the truck, ran the stage lights, and was the drum tech. I spent many nights sitting on or next to a huge pile of speakers with rock music pumping through them amplified at 5, 10, or 20 thousand watts...or some mega number. Of course I did this without the benefit of any hearing proection, so that, along with firing 44 magnums without ear plugs, has left me with a nice case of partial hearing impairment. Just so you know, I am not senile, I just cant always hear what youre saying! LOL....

    Current Albums I recommend:

    Alter Bridge - Blackbird
    http://www.amazon.com/Blackbird-Alter-Bridge/dp/B000VKJ6VS

    Back Door Slam - Roll Away
    http://www.amazon.com/Roll-Away-Back-Door-Slam/dp/B000QEILGU/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1220573408&sr= 8-1

    Staind - The Illusion of Progress

    http://www.amazon.com/Illusion-Progress-Staind/dp/B001B94K14/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1220573597&sr=1-1


    Saving Abel - (self titled)

      RE: The Music Thread

      I'm listen to mostly classic/hard rock and modern rock. I can stand a little country music or hip-hop, but mostly older stuff there. I also like a very specific set of techno/electronica artists (whatever you want to call it), such as Paul Van Dyke, Paul Oakenfold, Juno Reactor, and The Prodigy. Never really listen to those in huge doses though. And I can't stand the crap that's just repetitive beats and sounds.

      I also love going to concerts. I've met (and gotten a ton of stuff signed by) Trapt, Nickelback, Three Days Grace, Chevelle, Seether, Flyleaf, Halestorm, Shinedown, and had lunch with Crossfade and Breaking Benjamin before a show, and I just scored tickets to see Buckcherry and Saving Abel on October 9th at The Tabernacle.

          SexPistols > Ramones :P

          I have a very broad taste in music, and I change obsessions pretty often. I do agree with most others, NO country, Very little "rap".
          Right now, I'm going back to my 90's punk roots with some Millencolin, Face to Face, Vandals ect...
          All in the wake of an odd Metal stage...

          General tastes include: Punk/Metal/Blues/Folk/Bluegrass/Jam
          Honestly, if I can tell that a musician is passionate about what he/shes doing, I can get into it.

              RE: The Music Thread

              I started off with the true Brit rock of the 90's, which I'm sure is very surprising :lol:

              I listen to pretty much everything except for country and crap ***** sound like Dave Matthews and Jack Johnson.

              I'm big into techno - trance, dnb, dance, house and all that at the moment. And I won't lie, I do like rap, just not the stuff you hear on the radio all the time.

              And of course, 80's!

                        Oh dear.. this could get long.

                        I've always been really into music. My tastes are all over the place and I have been digging deep for good stuff since I was in my very early teens. First concert (that I didn't attend with a family member or something like that) - Fugazi (January 1993). Most recent concert - Nine Inch Nails (about 3 weeks ago).

                        I probably listen to Tool more than anything else but my ipod is full of years and years of music that I love.

                        Examples:

                        Rock bands, traditional and not such as:
                        Tool
                        A Perfect Circle
                        Nine Inch Nails
                        Phish
                        Spoon
                        Muse
                        Bad Religion
                        Band of Horses
                        Descendants
                        Swervedriver
                        Self
                        Pixies
                        Fugazi
                        Idiot Pilot
                        Radiohead
                        Stone Roses

                        I listen to some rap/hip hop but definitely none of the crap that is on the radio these days. I like old Outkast, anything by the Beastie Boys, old west coast NWA type stuff and even some terribly ghetto fabulous Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Three Six Mafia and Trick Daddy sometimes. There are a ton of rap artists that I have one or two songs from on my ipod but a lot of the stuff I can't listen to for too long.

                        I also have a nice little collection of vinyl at home. I used to spin drum and bass waaaay back in the day but I still listen to it a lot. I'm really into Evol Intent, Dom, old Konflict stuff, I really like a lot of the new dubstep that is out as well as the really hard stuff that is being produced these days. I love the early 90's old school stuff that got me into DnB as well as some stuff from the late 90's. There was a bit of a lull in 2003, 2004-ish where all I listened to was old stuff because I didn't like the new stuff but it's a lot better now. I still like Tricky and the Prodigy as well, though neither are DnB. And of course I love Squarpusher... no idea where to categorize him though... lol.

                        I can enjoy most any type of music if it takes talent and has soul behind it though. I love jazz and have been to jazz clubs and festivals in many cities around the US. I love bluegrass. Well, I can't say I own any right now but I do enjoy it quite a bit. I know tons about really obscure bands and artists, toooooons about old punk since I was really into it for years and years and still listen to it. Hell, I even know a lot about straight edge hardcore and have seen Earth Crisis 4 times... that usually surprises people. I saw a lot of bands like Offspring and Green Day in tiny clubs with 200 people back before they were ever on the radio. (I've totally lost my love for Green Day but I still love Offspring. They put on a hell of a show) Saw Pennywise, NOFX, All, Helmet, tons of bands that I am really glad to have experienced.

                        The ipod probably has about 200 different artists on it and I'm about to add a lot more. I'm pretty slack about updating it.

                        I'm not the girl you want to go up against in music trivia.:lol: (Mike can attest to all of the free pizza we've had at Mellow Mushroom trivia nights because of this fact). If you ever need to ask someone about anything from traditional rock to hip hop to shoegazer pop to obscure electronica to 80's music and disco all the way back to 60's rock and even some big band... I'm your girl. Ha.

                          Well that's good to know for pizza. I'm thoroughly enjoying the latest Ministry of Sound Garage Classics of the summer... how I wish we had this stuff getting played here.

                            Internet radio :cool:

                            Sometimes, WREK 91.1 and WRAS 88.5 play some good stuff as well if you're stuck in traffic or driving around town.
