Robot Destroy
Iron Maiden
and any artist on Never Faded Records

Bok [brimstone killers] August 1 2006 8:21 PM EDT

lil Flip
Bone Thugs and Harmony

RedWolf August 1 2006 9:18 PM EDT

Interpol, 65 Days of Static, Spoon, Boards of Canada, Autechre, Squarepusher, Eric Clapton, Cake, too many people. Mostly either Indie/Rock or weird ambient electronic clicks and beeps and stuff.

BlueWolf August 1 2006 9:20 PM EDT

bone thugs n harmony all the way!!!!!

i'll listen to basically anything.


whatever you come up, i will probably listen to it

Mem August 1 2006 11:30 PM EDT

Why can't they be bands? A band isn't a group. Or is it a group isn't a band? Anyways...

The Decemberists
Elliott Smith

Or is it Pixies, Elliott Smith, The Decemberists? I'm not sure.

Vaynard [Fees Dirt Cheap] August 2 2006 1:05 AM EDT

My favorite group of all time is the Goo Goo Dolls. After them, these are some of my favorites:
Matchbox 20
Red Hot Chili Peppers
No Doubt (first CD is the best)
Third Eye Blind

And many many more.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 2 2006 1:15 AM EDT

That's a lousy hard question, so I'll give a lousy lazy answer.


(I picked three of my favorite bands from three genres)

en1ac [The Knighthood] August 2 2006 1:28 AM EDT

System Of A Down

Dragon Slayer August 2 2006 1:35 AM EDT

Bouncing Souls
Greg Graffin
Andrew McMahon

QBJohnnywas August 2 2006 3:05 AM EDT

This is difficult. Consider my wife's reaction to my music collection:

"You've got 4000 cds!! Where the hell are we going to put them?!?!?!?"

And it can change from time to time depending on my mood...so:

The Clash
The Jam
Super Furry Animals


Saint Etienne
Aphex Twin


The Who
The Kinks
The Small Faces


Prefab Sprout


Al Green
Isaac Hayes
Marvin Gaye


David Bowie

No, I can't do it! I've just thought of several other lots of 3. I could simply go on all day long. Shuffle on an MP3 player is possibly one of the best inventions known to music fans. I love that....

Thrasher August 2 2006 4:34 AM EDT

Well it has to be the big 4 of thrash for me! \m/,

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] August 2 2006 10:07 AM EDT

Alice In Chains
Guns and Roses
Bon Jovi! (We all have our guilty pleasures :P)

I love a lot more but these are the ones that I can repeatedly listen to :)

[me]Davis August 2 2006 11:44 AM EDT

i really like alot of different stuff, AFI, Death Cab to Cutie, Cartel, Coheed and Cambria, Tool, The Who, Rush, Led Zeppelin, Godsmack, PANIC! At The Disco, etc..

chappy [Soup Ream] August 2 2006 11:50 AM EDT

Nine Inch Nails

Aphex Twin



.. tons more, but that is a good summary .. Moods play a big role in what music I like / listen to as it does with most everyone else.

SBW August 2 2006 12:41 PM EDT

anyone here like bay area rap?

SuiteStuff [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] August 2 2006 2:21 PM EDT

Avenged Sevenfold Ramnstein Nightwish Disturbed (i can't stand any bay area rapper! south Cali where they be at!)

SBW August 2 2006 2:33 PM EDT

O.O chamillionaire!!!

SuiteStuff [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] August 2 2006 3:09 PM EDT

ill give you chamillionaire since he doesnt sing like a traditional bay area rapper...but the rest and their hyphy movement is just dumb anywhere else!

Recovering BA Addict August 2 2006 3:23 PM EDT

Porcupine Tree
Dark Tranquillity
Devin Townsend

SBW August 2 2006 3:39 PM EDT

hyphy music is dumb

AdminG Beee August 2 2006 7:31 PM EDT

Right now listening to Strauss Favourite Waltzes and enjoying every bit of it :)

Adminedyit [Superheros] August 2 2006 8:01 PM EDT

1. Metallica \m/
2. Johnny Cash
3. Pink Floyd

Adminedyit [Superheros] August 2 2006 8:03 PM EDT

O M G how can Metallica not be in the spell checker???? That verges on blasphemy!!!!!!

Thraklight Resonance August 2 2006 8:41 PM EDT

This is difficult. Consider an ex-girlfriend's reaction to my music collection:

"You've got 4000 cds!! You've got every song from every cd listed in a database. You can recite the entire historical membership, by instrument, of bands like King Crimson and the Soft Machine, but you still can't remember if my eyes are green or blue!!!!"

And it can change from time to time depending on my mood...so:

The Clash
The Jam
Super Furry Animals


Saint Etienne
Aphex Twin


The Who
The Kinks
The Small Faces


Prefab Sprout


Al Green
Isaac Hayes
Marvin Gaye


David Bowie

No, I can't do it! I've just thought of several other lots of 3. I could simply go on all day long. This post is not to imply that Johnnywas and I are multis (he remembered his wife's eye color), but it does indicate that we are both music geeks with way too much music and not enough time to listen to all of it.

Oh, hey

Porcupine Tree

Solomon Grundy August 2 2006 9:02 PM EDT

As with most people it depends on the mood, but I'd have to say my two favorite bands are definitely Clutch and Primus. After that I'd say there is a fairly big group.

QBJohnnywas August 3 2006 5:32 AM EDT

Lol at thrak. It's difficult being a music geek. My downloads are causing concern too. I've filled up about 2 gig on our computer in the past week or so - with stuff I actually want and listen to!

My wife loves music herself, and more so than any of my past relationships - but she sometimes laughs/despairs at my obsession with it!

Negator August 3 2006 11:48 AM EDT

Rock (not Grunge), House (not Hardcore), and a lot of well-polished Pop. The artists that rarely if ever disappoint me are: AC/DC The Angels Pet Shop Boys Nick Skitz (Australian DJ, mixes and remixes a LOT of House-style dance music) The Corrs ABBA Honourable mentions to: The Jets The Cat Empire Little Richard Bananarama Kiss Rogue Traders Tom Jones (his later music, starting with _The Lead And How To Swing It_) Blondie Plus, virtually any Baroque Classical Music (most especially Handel).

molans[Grumpy] August 7 2006 6:27 PM EDT

Looks like I'm one of few who is into techno (mainly House).
Laurent Garnier, Darren Emerson, Satoshi Tomiie, ...

molans[Grumpy] August 7 2006 6:32 PM EDT

... also, when I was younger, I was huge fan of Kyuss and Tool, also - liked Hendrix, Tricky, still like Radiohead, ...

QBJohnnywas August 7 2006 6:34 PM EDT

You're not the only one Molans...I've got tons and tons of mix cds taking up room although my main dance tastes lie towards Orbital, Underworld, Aphex Twin, Luke Slater, Two Lone Swordsmen, and Andy Weatherall's old outfit Sabres Of Paradise. They did a tune called Smoke Belch II which is absolutely amazing - was the soundtrack to many many good nights....

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] August 7 2006 9:50 PM EDT

hmmm...the first 3 I can think of:

Assemblage 23

Breaking Benjamin

Linkin' Park

But there are oh, so many more! Music is the heart of life!

QBsutekh137 August 7 2006 11:56 PM EDT

Robot Destroy (come on, Killah, at least make it a link!)
Regina Spektor
Neko Case

AdminShade August 8 2006 12:18 PM EDT

Better to ask what music I _don't_ like... ;)

Miandrital August 8 2006 12:18 PM EDT

Linkin Park
The Beatles

SBW August 8 2006 12:30 PM EDT

linkin park is good, but I like linkin park/jay z more

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] August 9 2006 10:33 AM EDT

the remix album and the one with Jay Z were the worst thing Linkin Park could have done, oh what a way to ruin a great career.

SBW August 9 2006 10:49 AM EDT

no way... numb encore is good

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] August 9 2006 11:17 AM EDT

You would say that being into rap and all.
Those of us with taste believe otherwise ;P

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 9 2006 11:37 AM EDT

linkin park deserve to be run over with the tank that should have killed lionel richie.
Jay Z is a meh, he was never quoted as saying "we're just another punk band" in RS...They can't rap, know nothing about hip hop, and suck as musicians to boot.

SBW August 9 2006 1:02 PM EDT

no way... fort minor is the rapper from linkin park. "remember the name" got to be the NBA song
