    Default beta music and bands

    there should be plenty...the first one that comes to mind is 30 seconds to mars...virtually all of their songs I've heard carry some 4'ish/NF theme

    chili peppers may also be beta, atleast in the majority

    ok, I've spent the majority of my time at work this morning analyzing music. Oddly enough, beta seems to be the most common quadra, but that could possibly be because I am just finding what I identify with in it. Either way, I thought I'd post an observation.

    Yellowcard - gifts and curses (live version): This is one of the best songs (being live made it so) I've ever heard from them. It begins with an elegant violin and leads into a quietly passionate first verse. The songs essentially conveys the idea of fighting for love, which is extremely noble. The tone is kept at a fairly low-key level, which only adds to the suspense. You can actually identify with the singer, to some degree. There is a back-and-forth singing before the chorus, which is very clever imo. This song could almost be turned into a play. Then, towards the middle there is a chilling piano solo which captivates the audience (and the listener, obviously). Then the violin joins in (a background one and the main one), creating the greatest build-up of the song and generating huge responses from the crowd (jesus, this is so beta lol). The lead up makes one feel like they are walking towards the noblest battle of their life. Then, it goes back into the chorus as smoothly as a lake in the morning, and phases out peacefully, with the crowd roaring. I believe this song is a masterpiece, in its proper context (even though I haven't heard the album version).

    ugh, well I'm done...I'm pretty certain they're beta though

    Don't know about Sigur Ros, they seem pretty Si (Delta>Alpha?) to me. I guess the "etherealness" of their music might be attributed to Ni. I agree with you that music is difficult to "type"

    Placebo (at least their singer) seems about right for Beta

    well, when I saw him on this show, he was talking about how he is a perfectionist in a very controlled, calm way. He basically doesn't seem to exude the Fe charisma I would expect from a beta, so I thought he was either ENTj or ESFp.

    So many Beta bands.

    Beta people gravitate towards Beta inspired music - this is likely true for all quadras. There is just something inherent within the music itself that defines the quadra if the makers of the music are Beta quadra members themselves.

    For example, I've noticed a huge trend of IEIs being highly pretentious about their music, which is usually created by other IEIs. You know, the whole "indie" community and whatnot - I used to be a part of this before I grew out of immaturity But yeah, some of these bands include:

    The Arcade Fire < -- I see this band as more EIE than IEI
    Modest Mouse

    Sigur Ros (definitely IEI, despite the fact that their music sounds "relaxing" which may be associated with - however, the themes of their music is most definitely )

    Bright Eyes (lolz)

    Beirut

    Animal Collective < - freakin' awesome

    Final Fantasy

    RADIOHEAD < -- IEI-Ni galore

    Wolf Parade

    Yo La Tengo

    Taking Back Sunday (lolz)

    A.F.I. (lolz)

    My Chemical Romance (lolz)
    ...

    Some Beta bands that exude more OOMPH and

    Prodigy
    Pendulum
    Crystal Castles
    Sex Pistols
    Ramones
    Blondie

    Yeah

    The main thing that correlates all Beta bands is that their music has a sense of urgency, I've noticed. Even the slow music, like Sigur Ros, it builds up to extreme climaxes and such. Very, very "intense". Also has a ton of themes about revolution, sticking it to the man, banding together as one, and just generally very ethereal weird stuff.

    The Sound Of Animals Fighting...

    http://www.myspace.com/thesoundofanimalsfighting

    My IEI friend introduced me to them. When I first listened to them it freaked me out... but the music grew on me, and even amazed me.






    How about Blonde Redhead?
    Cursive?

    The reason I think he's an Eight is because I read it on Tom Condon's The Changeworks website.

    Good point; never thought of that. The lyrics are certainly Beta orientated. However, I'm not sure the band is Beta.

    Nirvana?

    Burial Absolutely
    Coldplay Yep
    Delays
    Groove Armada How did you come to this conclusion
    Lamb Definitely
    Laurent Garnier
    Massive Attack Also definitely
    Moby Probably. He could be Ne/Si
    Novastar
    Ozark Henry
    Placebo Yes
    R÷yksopp Most likely
    Sigur Rˇs
    Silicone Soul
    Swayzak
    Technasia
    Trentem°ller Maybe, but could be Gamma
    Underworld Not sure. Could be Gamma, like Booka Shade

    That's what led me to think Ulrich Schnauss a Ni type.

    Can you point out the songs with IEI themes? I remember in my original type thread here, I said I liked Sigur Ros and some people suggested they were Delta.

    Beirut
    why Ni/Se? feels more Alpha to me.

    Site typings are essentially pointless. Five different sites will probably have five different typings of the same person.

    Hmmm. . . you're definitely right about the no Fe charisma thing.
    But haha you'd think he was Beta the way some of his songs go. . ("Move" "Blow It Out Your Ass" "Ultimate Satisfaction")
    IEI, perhaps Fe sub.
