Your Music Tastes'

edited August 2007 in History of Rock
As the thread title implies, this is a thread where you are able to share your music tastes, no matter what genre you're most interested in. Now with differences aside, let's share some music tastes', shall we?

I'm most interested in light music like ska and reggae. Upbeat, and symbolic, not like most genres of music out there today. Most reggae songs have a deep meaning to them, and most of the time the general meaning of the song is to get through either the best or worst of times together. Reggae overall is just beautiful, aspiring music that describes stories of unity, sorrow, and compassion.

I have a very widespread music taste, from happy and upbeat music such as Sublime and Peter Tosh to the darker side of music such as Iron Maiden and Pantera. Yes, Pantera. I'm into that whole southern attitude thing. Black Label Society FTW. I listen to practically anything, really. Celtic Frost. Amon Amarth. Arch Enemy. In Flames. Dark Tranquility. CKY. Freezepop. Led Zeppelin. ZZ Top. Counting Crows. Senses Fail. Megadeth. Atreyu. As I Lay Dying. Blink 182. I think you get the point.

And a big "You're Awesome!" sticker goes to the person that knew all of those bands.

I'm a big fan of the 90's Seattle grunge scene too. Soundgarden, Alice In Chains. STP, Smashing Pumpkins.

I'm always open to new styles of music, so feel free to suggest some stuff for me.

    Well, my musical tastes are very much stuck in the period between 1960 and 1990.

    I started getting into Classic Rock when my Uncle introduced me to it about 8 years ago. Since then I've amassed a "The Who" collection well into the 500 item mark and have the complete collections of Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle and Keith Moon solo works.

    Other Classic Rock artists I really love: The Beatles, Pink Floyd (Mostly post-Roger Waters (i.e. A Momentary Lapse Of Reason and The Division Bell), Queen, Brian May, Elton John (Early Elton. i.e. Madman Across The Water, Tumbleweed Connection, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, The Fox, Jump Up), Steve Vai, Eric Johnson and Boston

    In addition to this genre I also love a lot of Classic Metal (not Speed, Thrash or Death). By Classic I mean groups like Judas Priest (I have 90% of their albums) and Iron Maiden.

    I also have a bit of a weak spot for 80's pop. However, I must be in the right mood for this.

    The final genre of music I really like is Punk. I'm not a huge fan of the Sex Pistols (Blasphemy you cry!) but I do really like The Clash. In addition I really like The Donnas too, even though they're more modern.

    That's about it.

    P.S. I also like some instrumental stuff (Mostly soundtracks to movies, but I also have "Method Music" by Lawrence Ball and Pete Townshend) to put on in the background

    I love every kind of rock style and genre there is, although I'm not much of a fan of metal. Never really clicked for me.

    My favorite eras include late 60s classic rock, late '70s/early '80s punk, non-mainstream '80s stuff (anything underground in the '80s blew away the mainstream stuff), and early to mid '90s indie and alternative rock.

    Rock, punk, ska, alternative, hard rock, classic rock, indie, folk, garage rock, surf, psychedelia, proto-punk, and even some glam rock.

    It's expanded from nirvana, sublime, led zeppelin and the like up til about 17, to 4000 downloaded songs in the past couple years by countless artists since I found torrents. I like basically every genre but country. Countrys not my thing. I'm pretty picky in the music I listen to so I have to REALLY like it in order to push myself to listen to it. If i'm not struck or moved by a song in any way, it'll generally not be in my ipod.
  • edited August 2007
    I listen to a good mix, but strictly no country.

    To be honest, I'm just a fan of music. I think anyone that limits themselves to one genre is limiting their life, as well. Music is one of the great mediums in this world of ours that allows you to transcend, contemplate, love, laugh, even rage.

    Of course, there are genres that I appreciate more than others, but I cannot think of a single type of music that I can completely rule out.

    I'm just as much a fan of Sepultura as I am of Johnny Cash.
    I love me some Pantera, but I have been known to nod my head to Cypress Hill.
    Bach moves me and The Who makes me feel young.
    Enya settles me, Hatebreed gets me fired up.
    Afro Celt Sound System literally makes me cry with its beauty.
    Ska makes me happy and raggae makes me feel high. (And yes, I just mean feel high.)

    If I were to list off all of my favorite bands, it would take forever. My hippie parents taught me at a young age that music is truly a gift of life, and nearly everything can be appreciated if you give it enough time. I was raised on the Beatles and Cream, grew into metal during my "formative" years, and mellowed a bit with celtic music now that I'm older. I think in between I've hit on pretty much every other genre and found something to make me happy.

    do you like lunasa??

    I had not heard of Lunasa before, but I checked them out real quick. Awesome stuff! Very reminiscent of the Chieftains or Cherish the Ladies. Thank you for the guidance on that one!

    Have you ever listened to Afro Celt? By far one of the most unique bands in the world. Quite honestly, I've never heard anyone else that even resembles their style. I consider them to be one of the best musical talents this world has ever known. 'Course, they're not for everyone, but there are a few songs that have quite literally changed my life.

    afro celt huh?? not to sound racist but that sounds like a celtic band with black influences. will wiki them and youtube them soon :thumbsup:

    They are a very tough band to describe, but essentially they are what happens when you throw together a traditional Irish band, a traditional African band, a smattering of mid-Eastern influenced musicians, and a DJ.

    If that doesn't at least make you wonder what in blue blazes that's gotta' sound like, you're just not human. Whether or not you like it is another story, but the talent level of this band is through the roof.

    My personal favorite album is Volume 2.

    Here are a couple YouTube vids: (Sinnead O'Connor did the vocals on this one) (Peter Gabriel guest sings on this one) (This'll show you how diverse the band is) (not really a video, but a good way to listen to my favorite song by them)

    That'll at least get you started.
