  • What music /bands do you like?

    What music do you all listen to?

  • #2
    Pretty much any classical composer, classic rock, hard rock, metal, 70s and 80s soul and pop that is made with real instruments.

    Bands that I enjoy include Ozzy, Black Label Society, Prince, Metallica, Def Leppard, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Tool and others.
    Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

      The only music that I just can't enjoy, no matter how hard I try, is disco, country music, and modern rap.

      Other than that, it's extremely varied. My collection goes from Beethoven to Carcass

        While I loathe modern country, I enjoyed the "outlaw" variety in the 80s. And yes, modern rap is shit. They don't do it like Eazy-E, NWA, PE and others used to do.

        To disco, I will add techno, new age and punk. All crap.

          I forgot to mention that I loathe "nu-metal" and "metalcore". But since this thread is about music, I think my forgetfulness can be understood

            Agreed. It was depressing hearing Sevendust's second (and subsequent) album after their first, great, classic offering. Some pud once said that nu metal was the grunge of this age. No, not really. Grunge was good.

              I still haven't warmed up to Pearl Jam or Nirvana, but Alice in Chains and Soundgarden have made some excellent stuff.

              The stuff the music companies released to capitalize on grunge (something called "post-grunge") is another thing. Some of that stuff is good, but doesn't hold up to actual grunge.

              Now, if you asked me about grunge when I was in high school, I wasn't fond of it since half of the school thought it was the best music ever and the other half of the school thought gangsta rap was the best music ever, and here I am with a few other malcontents who're enjoying metal, classic rock, and some blues and don't get why either sides music is insanely popular.

              I warmed up to grunge in college thanks to Napster, where I decided to see what the deal was with them in high school

                Give me AC/DC and Queen anytime day or night. Mind you my tastes do travel outside that area. Anywhere from Opera, Classical to some country, to the music of the 40"s 50's 60's 70's and the 80's disco. There are some new artists I don't mind as well. The only thing I really don't like is rap. I guess you could say I like almost everything. AC/DC and Queen really are my favorites.

                  I like AC/DC but I've never heard an album of theirs all the way through. Same with Queen.

                  Have you heard any of the stuff with Paul Rodgers?

                    I'm a very big fan of Bruce Springsteen, Mark Knopfer/Dire Straits and Johnny Cash. I usually like rock and classic music, and I hate any hiphop and rap.

                    Oh yeah, and recently, Amy MacDonald is quite nice!

                      I own PJ and Nirvana (the MTV Unplugged album is great), but I have to be in a certain mood to listen to them. AIC and Soundgarden were more macho than the other two. Stone Temple Pilots were good, too. Former AIC member Jerry Cantrell put out at least one decent album.

                      This "post-grunge" stuff is not something that I have particularly enjoyed.

                      AC/DC is good. I am not big on the idea of all these old school bands coming back with new albums, so I haven't checked out their new one yet. Queen was fantastic, hands down.

                      Cash is the man.

                      Not to comment on Springsteen's musical talent, but I think I like Adam Sandler's impression of Springsteen more than the real McCoy.

                          Having visited several of his concerts and being a big fan of the "Seeger-Sessions"-Stuff, I personally would never doubt his musical talent. But, as always, taste differs!

                            I'm trying an interesting exercise: remembering the different albums or songs I've most recently listened to in reverse order.

                            Rage Against The Machine, Metallica, Muse (all at my New Years Eve party, along with some compilation CDs made by a friend of which I can only now remember listening to some James Brown), David Bowie, John Williams' Star Wars scores (all of them), Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings scores (all of them), Pink Floyd, and the Stereophonics.

                            The list breaks down after that, because I can't remember that far back. I know there's some Queen and Soundgarden, but I can't remember when. Also some Led Zeppelin, and a young blues musician called Joe Bonamasa. I think I remember putting Wolfmother on not so long ago, and the B5: Lost Tales score.

                            Althogether that probably pretty accurately breaks down my musical preferences!

                              Totally disagree with most of this. I don't listen to enough new age to comment, but disagree as to techno & punk. Punk can be very uneven, but the good stuff is really good. And I've been listening to a ton of techno and various offshoots and subgenres.

                              That said, my two favorite artists of all time are Trent Reznor & Maynard James Keenan. I'll listen to anything they're involved with - NIN, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, etc.
