Please post some bands/artists you listen to, why you like them, and two or three standout songs from each band. I want to expand and diversify my musical tastes a bit. I promise to try and listen to as much as I can. If you're against piracy, this isn't the topic for you. lol.
I'll start. I'll try not to name any obvious ones, like Pink Floyd or AC/DC. Or Black Sabbath, lol.
Journey - I love their ballads. Their music is clear and soaring. Some people think they're cheesy, but I don't mind them.
Wheel In The Sky
Don't Stop Believing
Iron Maiden - These guys just kick ass. Their songs are so badass and cool sounding that it makes me want to turn into a demon just so I can kick ass with these guys.
The Evil That Men Do
Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
Sublime - These guys bring up feelings of nostalgia. Makes me remember the early 90s, growing up as a wee lad. Great sound. Very Original. A little played out.
40 oz. To Freedom
Smoke Two Joints
What I Got (their most overplayed song)
NOFX - Punk at its finest. Pure cynicism. Classic themes. Some lousy vocals by lead singer Fat Mike, but it's got a charm that grows on you. Wonderful band.
Dinosaurs Will Die
Kill All The White Man
Simon & Garfunkel - Paul Simon is, in my opinion, the greatest American songwriter. Some of his music is so powerful it has brought me to tears. And Art Gerfunkel has one of the most beautiful voices you will ever hear. Legend.
The Sound Of Silence
Bridge Over Troubled Water
El Condor Pasa
KMFDM - German Techno Metal. Pretty heavy, but it's brilliant. The music is badass and complex. The song structure is unpredictable. Great longevity.
A Drug Against War
Juke Joint Jezebel
Bad Religion - My favorite band. Something about their songs just clicks with me, even though I don't agree with their whole philosophy. I can listen to them all day. Brilliant lyrics, catchy music, great punk. Over 50 really good songs.
Leaders And Followers
Recipe For Hate
(and like a million others)
U2 - Sike, I hate U2.
