*cough* Dream Theater
The Vines were my favorite band for a really long time before I discovered Muse, which is now my all-time super favorite band. And as far as Muse goes, I love Super Massive Black Hole, Time is Running Out, and New Born.

meh.... i'm probably the only headstones fan around here
January 22 2007 9:47 PM EST
I'm amazed to see Queensryche's name still being tossed around after all these years.
Operation: Mindcrime has to be my favorite album of all time, with Empire coming in a close second.

The music genome project....check it out, you will find this to be an amazing tool to find new music and more of the music you like !!
your very welcome,

don't do it, thats like opening... pandora's box!
Ah come on black sabbath is still good stuff.If you haven't heard them you'll see who borrowed from them.
http://radioblogclub.com is better. It actually lets you listen to music you want to listen to instead of randomly selecting similar songs.
last.fm is also good if you want to find groups similar to those which you like.
Depends what you're into, I guess... I'm a huge fan of rock, metal, jazz and classical, with occasional tendencies toward ambient electronica, so the following list will probably be mildly useless to you :-P
Theatre of Tragedy - Velvet Darkness They Fear
After Forever - Decipher
Within Temptation - Enter
Tristania - Beyond The Veil
Opeth - Morningrise
Dark Tranquillity - Haven
In Flames - Colony
Children Of Bodom - Follow The Reaper
At The Gates - Slaughter Of The Soul
Nightrage - Descent Into Chaos
Dream Theater - Metropolis Part II - Scenes From A Memory
Savatage - Poets And Madmen
Planet X - Self Titled
Spock's Beard - Feel Euphoria
Symphony X - The Divine Wings Of Tragedy
Virgin Black - Sombre Romantic
Memento Mori - La Danse Macabre
Eternal Tears Of Sorrow - Chaotic Beauty
Dimmu Borgir - Stormblast
Emperor - Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk
Edguy - Mandrake
Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
Angra - Rebirth
Amorphis - Tuonela
Nightwish - Oceanborn
But, meh. More recently, I've been listening to a lot of Shostakovic and Dvorak, as well as some Wagner and Puccini, so I have to recommend them.
And if you want some really nice jazz, listen to some Thelonius Monk, he pwnz h4rd .
Muse is great, and man, I didn't realize that I was on the same page musically as so many CB'ers. My top 10 picks I've been cranking for the last month or two, in no particular order:
In Flames - Colony
Strapping Young Lad - City
Devin Townsend - Terria
At The Gates - Slaughter of the Soul
Darkane - Rusted Angel
Soilwork - Natural Born Chaos
God Forbid - Determination
Cutting Room Floor - self titled
Pantera - Cowboys From Hell
Bad Religion - All Ages
I think it was Slashundhack who mentioned Sabbath- yeah! You have to respect your roots- Sabbath, Maiden, and I may catch some crap for this, but they're huge influences on my sound as a musician- Boston and Thin Lizzy.
I've got a huge place in my life for punk, too- it got me through those rough teen years- Minor Threat, Bad Religion, Adolescents, Crass, Conflict, etc.
Gee why would anyone dig at you for Thin Lizzy they were great. Boston was a little umm hair bandish for me not that they weren't good though just too soft.
That's the general consensus, Boston = kinda wussy, but I stand by my belief that Tom Scholz [guitarist] is a freakin' genius.
A lot of the new metal bands out there cop the harmonized lead lines and credit Iron Maiden. Don't get me wrong, I love Maiden, too, but the first time I heard the guitar harmonies was "More Than A Feeling" by Boston, not "The Trooper".

My Chemical Romance
Edyit, those bands are emo. :\
January 26 2007 7:01 PM EST
Going back on slightly older stuff...Rubberduck reminded me of Janes Addiction today; they're worth checking out. Personally I like all their albums, but the best is definitely "Ritual de lo Habitual". In fact I'd recommend it to anyone that likes their guitars dirty loud and energetic. Fantastic songs too!
January 26 2007 7:27 PM EST
My personal play list on my ipod
Metallica (lots of songs mostly the older stuff)
MegaDeth (you don't get much heavier than this)
Tool (Maynard is a genius)
Pantera (pure power metal)
Black Sabbath (still jams even now)
Slayer (Shades of Death, never heard it then find it)
Korn (just a few)
AC DC (Angus is an animal on the guitar)
SOD (System has some jamming tunes)
Ozzy Osbourne (older than dirt and still rockin)
Marilyn Manson (just the Sweet Dreams cover)
Fun artists that I listened to this week include

Hot Hot Heat
The Clouds That Fondle Jagged Crags And Raging Storms
Conspire And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
January 27 2007 9:40 AM EST
Yeah, Grant Lee Buffalo, definitely!
('Ten' is the best album in the world and is at least twice as lyrically -and musically- complex as any 2 Nirvana and/or Foo Fighters albums put together).
Rage Against The Machine
The band with the best 'message' ever and the 2nd best live act in the world.
There's all of this hype and PR ..mainly spread around by the rock press about how Guns and Roses have the best rock song (either Paradise City? Or Welcome To The Jungle?); well don't believe the hype!!!
I know PLENTY of rockers (regardless of age + styles etc) who will happily sit down when a Guns and Roses track comes on in rock clubs...However, when "Killing In The Name Of.." comes on, watch the whole place erupt and go absolutely crazy!!!!
Hootie and the Blowfish
(powerful lyrics and harmonies to die for).
Tori Amos and All About Eve
(not-so-teenage crushes, but beautiful music)
Damien Rice (amazing voice)
(If Hendrix hadn't been born, Joe would have been the world's #1 guitarist)
KISS ('old-school' rules)
How about the original numetallers...Deftones...anyone?
Old Metallica (e.g. hit the lights/ride the lightning era...anything they have ever since the 'Black Album -and including the 'Black Album'- has been utter rubbish and pure made-for-MTV metal).
(their only album kicks the stuffing out of Creed's entire history!)
Or how about going for REALLY 'old-school' for Beethoven, Mozart, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, too?
Old school would be Gregorian Chant. :-)
I used to test old girlfriends and their sense of humor by popping in some Gregorian Chant near the beginning of a cuddle and makeout session. Reactions ranged from laughter for most to "Turn that off! Turn that off! You're going to hell for this!" for one high school girlfriend who graduated from high school and became a nun.
Real old school music would be banging a rock with a club while making various grunts ;)

Slipknot have much more talent than that, both Corey Taylor and Joey Jordison are very good at what they do, unfortunately they have made a fair few bad songs.
They still have a lot of great songs including Before I forget, Duality and Wait and Bleed.
January 27 2007 12:50 PM EST
When the song 'Wait and Bleed' came out, i went and bought the CD, the next day, i sold it for $8... $16.95 for one song seemed a bit much, so i cut my losses.
Spit It Out, Eyeless and Liberate are also very well worked songs on that album, I'm not a big fan of Slipknot, especially anything before Subliminal Verses but there still aren't more than a couple of bad songs on the self-titled album, there are just a fair few average ones.
How about " The Day Glow Abortions " I found them a HOOT !
I shot mommy with my automatic and lots of stuff like that.
Deftones - the original numetallers???
Eh? Helmet, guys. Come on, we all hate Page Hamilton, but he _did_ create the genre. And "Meantime" was half decent, despite what you may remember ;-)
But progressive rock... Trans-Siberian Orchestra (and Savatage), Symphony X, Spock's Beard, Planet X (Virgil Donati is in the top three drummers in the world, for mine), Liquid Tension Experiment (and Dream Theater), Angra... they're all decent.
And, edyit, Megadeth - you can't get much heavier than this???
Eh? They were thrash, not heavy. Heavy is Sepultura, or Bal Sagoth. Try Sepultura's "Chaos BC" if you want a nice, heavy, politically oriented album.
Wow, do I ramble.
Guitarists - Paul Gilbert (the song Bliss off... Burning Organ? is guitar mastery!), Marty Friedman - Scenes (Valley of Eternity... yikes... goose bumps at that final solo), Jason Becker - Perpetual Burn (Altitudes. 'Nuff said), Stevie Ray Vaughan - In Step (listen to his version of Jimi Hendrix's Little Wing and you will never view the world in the same way again), Patrick Rondat - Amphibia (just listen to his version of Vivaldi's "Presto" from the Four Seasons - Summer... wow.)
Geh, I could go on for hours.
Music is... to quote Empire Records, "The gel that holds the whole world together!"

If you like indie stuff, check out Interpol, Spoon, Franz Ferdinand, Minus the Bear, or Awesome Car Funmaker ;-)
muon, how much wronger can you be about Megadeth?
No, they aren't that heavy compared to some more recent bands but they definitely are not thrash.
So many people mistakingly say that Megadeth and Metallica are thrash but they are just 'old-school' original metal (I say original, obviously not as original as Sabbath and Zepplin).
January 28 2007 11:53 AM EST
Just checked out Pandora. That's a pretty cool site.
January 28 2007 8:05 PM EST
Might I suggest:
- The Rolling Stones
- The Velvet Underground
- Mindless Self Indulgence
- The Beatles
- Mothers Of Invention
- Nine Inch Nails
- The Cure
- AxCx (If you can find heavier music let me know)
- David Bowie
- The Talking Heads
- Flaming Tsunami's
- Bloodhound Gang
- Kittie (Women who play metal)
- System of a Down
- Saul Williams
- Black Sabbath
Many more but here's a good starting list for plenty of musical preferences. Also sorry if I repeated any bands.
Zoglog... dude. The San Francisco Bay Area was famous for its thrash metal bands, including acts like Metallica, Exodus and Testament. Megadeth and Slayer are also grouped in this area usually, because their sound is so similar (and the fact that they originated just around the corner, and were active around the same time). And no, none of them are or were counted amongst the originators of metal. So, that kind of puts paid to your second argument.
As to "Megadeth aren't Thrash"... well....
Anthrax, Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica are counted as the Big Four of thrash metal. Heck, even Testament are considered thrash, and those who have heard much of Skolnicks work might be surprised at that.
Sure, I agree that labels like "thrash" or "doom" or whatever can often be misleading, and that it is difficult to categorise artists. But, in general, when trying to communicate with other people, we generalise to make communication easier. And one such generalisation is that Megadeth is a thrash metal band. This is pretty much indisputable...
I'm not sure why you find it hard to accept this... I mean, the eponymous thrash metal album is "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?" by Megadeth...
And the originators of metal were Metallica and Megadeth? Eh?? You have to be joking...
You didn't read, I said they were among the original metal bands, not once did I say originators and I also added (not as original as Sabbath and Zepplin) but at the end of the day, they were the ones there playing it well when it became more of an accepted and loved genre.
You're right; my apologies.
They definitely did help to bring the genre to mainstream.
Awesome Car Funmaker is absolutely amazing. Reminds me of Boris the Sprinkler [RIP Boris].
I wouldn't really consider ACF as "indie" though... that term usually implies stuff i can't stand.
I <3 Megadeth. Working on throwing in the outro of "In My Darkest Hour" as part of a medley w/ my band right now.
I walk, I walk alone
Into the promised land
There's a better place for me
But it's far, far away
Everlasting life for me
In a perfect world
But I gotta die first
Please God send me on my way
Time has a way of taking time
Loneliness is not only felt by fools
Alone I call to ease the pain
Yearning to be held by you, alone, so alone, I'm lost
Consumed by the pain
The pain, the pain, the pain
Won't you hold me again
You just laughed, ha, ha, b-
My whole life is work built on the past
But the time has come when all things shall pass
This good thing passed away
