I am a Metal head but was raised in WV so grew up on country. As such I have a wide range of music that I like. I would have to say that Metallica is my all time favorite group though. What is everyone else's thoughts/likes?

Led Zeppelin is my favorite all time, but I'm all over the place.

Rap, Metal, Rock, some Country not a whole lot though, Classical, Jazz, Motown, Straight up oldies, etc...

I spent a long time as a die hard U2 fan... Bono got to "causey" for me though so it was time to move on.

I lost a ton of respect for Metallica with the whole napster thing... but the black album and master of puppets freaking rule.

I'm all about Punjabi music from India, I love classic rock grew up listening to it from my Uncles. I don't mind Rap, I find the lyrics funny at times...not a fan of country.

In 1981, when I was 8 y/o I discovered music. Shortly after I bought 3 tapes, Steve Miller Band (abracadabra), Survivor (eye of the tiger), and Lionel Ritchie (Hello, Penny Lover). Of those 3, I continued to appreciate Lionel well into my adult years. His greatest hits CD is awesome. The rest of the 80's was horrid...well except for 1985 when I discovered rap. I bought a rap mix tape looking for the Super Bowl shuffle. I found it but it also had 2 songs on it by Slick Rick. I was like :shock: It was on from there...public enemy, run dmc, beastie boys and then the group that changed the way I thought about rap...NWA.

This has nothing to do with anything. But I remember the exact moment they played that song on the radio for the last time. My mom was backing out of my grandmas driveway and the DJ came on telling everyone to get out the tape recorders because it was the last time they were going to play it.

I threw a fit because my mom wouldn't stop the car and let me go back inside to record it. :x

20 some years later and it's on my computer... so take that mom.

The COOLEST thing about it is that I guessed that from that crew you had to be 3 or 4 years younger than me (37, soon to be 38).

I'm with you, kid... Nice list... as I age, my list gets wider...

ON a side note, I recently proved to my 15-year old daughter that with rap, it actually doesn't matter what you say... that a cool beat could actually make a hit.

Yep I'm 34. I totally agree about the beat being the foundation. Wu Tang made terrific music and I rarely had any idea what they were talking about. But, I do like lyrics alot. My favorite pure writer would be Nas. But his best stuff you can't find on you tube but these are nice. The first link...unreal lyrics.

I've been real hesitant to write about this subject, because when I was younger, I would often talk to these middle-aged people, only to hear about their yesteryear rants about how their music growing up "was the only music for them." I thought I would never limit myself when it came to music. I still haven't but I do find myself listening my genre of music of "yesteryear" more often than any other music form. I really love rock.... I enjoy the older bands of Zep, vintage Aerosmith, Bad Company, old VanHalen (pre DiverDown) and Rush (instrumentally speaking, the most talented 3 man band in rock history).

I was a child of the 80s and I loved 80s alternative-post punk era music. I'm not talking about cheesy new wave artists that tried to have you "Wang Chung tonight" or "Dance if you want, or leave your friends behind".... (though some bands of that New Wave genre did merit my devotion Modern English, The Fixx, Tears for Fears, Depeche Mode just to name a few).

I listened to Industrial Hardcore and Gothic Rock. Just to name a few bands:

Ministry
Skinny Puppy
The Revolting Cocks
Laibach
The Sisters of Mercy
The Mission UK
The Cure
Siouxsie and the Banshees
Cyberaktif
Love and Rockets
Bauhaus
Peter Murphy
Public Image Limited
Big Audio Dynamite
Front 242
Nitzer Ebb
Die Warzau
The Consolidated
Meat Beat Manifesto
Fields of the Nephilum
1,000 Homo DJs
Sonic Youth
7 Seconds
The Exploited
GBH: Great Bodily Harm


.... I could go on and on... this to me not only still gets my adrenaline pumping, but for some reason pulls the most nostalgia out me like no other music form. Since then I've listened to various forms of music ranging from House music (break beat mostly) to grunge (Chris Cornell the greatest crooner to ever come out of this genre) to alternative rock.... but have never and will never get into rap. I stand corrected... The Beasty Boys are not only pioneers but are the Aerosmith of the genre, spanning decades of contributions to the music form. I could rant on and on, but I want to make two final notations.

1) In the Alternative rock flavor, IMO, Linkin' Park is truly talented. I think that this band has produced a lot for such a short time in the limelight and I continue to identify with their music message.

2) The Cult.... my all time favorite band.... period. Ian Asterbury is just awesome. I recently seen them at the HardRock in Orlando. Both he and his guitarist of 3 decades, Billy Duffy still write incredible music and perform with the same intensity. Bar none the greatest hard rock band. If you've never heard any of their music.... pick up either Electric, Sonic Temple or Ceremony.... all of these 3 albums will not disappoint.

I'll get off my soapbox now.... but more to come....

Brother you are speaking my language. I wasn't as familiar with Pigface, but I loved me some KMFDM.... Virus is probably the song that hooked me. I loved all the pop-art album covers they had, created by an artist known as "Brute" Hughes. I loved the WaxTrax label and all the bands that were housed by that label. This offshoot of Rock/Punk was not very notable to the masses.... that's why when one of Al Jourgensen's proteges from WaxTrax, a guy named Trent Reznor, lead his obscure band (at the time) Nine Inch Nails out into the vanguard of the alternative scene, I thought for sure that all the bands I listened to for years would get some recognition for their contributions to rock. Looking back at it now, I always wondered why "Pretty Hate Machine" did not pull the industrial movement out into the fore front, like "Nevermind" did for the grunge movement. Anyway.....

My favorite Ministry albums... Twitch and Land of the Rape and Honey. Skinny Puppy was awesome! "Smothered Hope" to this day is played on my MP3 when I run on the beach. The Revolting Cocks I saw 3 times.... talk about some great shows. I saw these these bands in Orlando from 87-89 in a club called Visage. That's pre-Lalapalooza when you could see a band in small venues. Other bands during that time period that played at this club that are noteworthy:

Dead Milkmen
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Jane's Addiction
Nitzer Ebb

Was really into that type of music at one point asiansteel. Loved Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Pigface, KMFDM, Nitzer Ebb, Faith No More etc.

"The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste" is my favorite album from Ministry. You have a favorite of theirs? And I noticed you didn't have KMFDM on your list.


Brother you are speaking my language. I wasn't as familiar with Pigface, but I loved me some KMFDM.... Virus is probably the song that hooked me. I loved all the pop-art album covers they had, created by an artist known as "Brute" Hughes. I loved the WaxTrax label and all the bands that were housed by that label. This offshoot of Rock/Punk was not very notable to the masses.... that's why when one of Al Jourgensen's proteges from WaxTrax, a guy named Trent Reznor, lead his obscure band (at the time) Nine Inch Nails out into the vanguard of the alternative scene, I thought for sure that all the bands I listened to for years would get some recognition for their contributions to rock. Looking back at it now, I always wondered why "Pretty Hate Machine" did not pull the industrial movement out into the fore front, like "Nevermind" did for the grunge movement. Anyway.....

My favorite Ministry albums... Twitch and Land of the Rape and Honey. Skinny Puppy was awesome! "Smothered Hope" to this day is played on my MP3 when I run on the beach. The Revolting Cocks I saw 3 times.... talk about some great shows. I saw these these bands in Orlando from 87-89 in a club called Visage. That's pre-Lalapalooza when you could see a band in small venues. Other bands during that time period that played at this club that are noteworthy:

Dead Milkmen
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Jane's Addiction
Nitzer Ebb

I had to laugh when you mentioned Virus because when I saw your list, it made we want to throw in some good Industrial I hadn't heard in a long time, and it was Virus that I played first. Na´ve especially was an album I really enjoyed as a whole but it was Virus that got me hooked first too.

Good insight about Pretty Hate Machine and the comparison you made to Nevermind and the influence we thought it'd have. The young masses just fell in love with the grungy, plain & self-depracating angst rock of Kurt Cobain and the like because they could easily understand and relate to it I think. That and there were some catchy tunes they cranked out. That's awesome you got to see all those guys at that venue, especially when they were more raw and less known (ie. RHCP, Jane's, Cult).

Good to know I can BS this stuff with someone too. :P

B-52's
Soul Coughing / Mike Doughty
Depeche Mode

I definitely have a mixed taste in music, but as far as my favorite artists go:

Jimmy Buffett (as I mentioned in another thread, I'm a Parrot Head from the womb)
Billy Joel
Rod Stewart
ELO
Styx
Beatles
Toby Keith
Kenny Chesney
Trace Adkins
Cat Stevens
Three Dog Night
Alabama
Dave Matthews Band
Bare Naked Ladies
Bee Gees
Bob Marley


Those are favorite artists, but I enjoy most classic rock, 80's music (even the bubblegum teeny bopper stuff), disco, oldies, country, and some newer stuff (Dave Matthews, Maroon 5, some Sublime, Everclear, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Bare Naked Ladies, Shaggy, etc.) I can deal with some rap (prefer the older stuff), in fact the only stuff I REALLY can't stand is the new head banging stuff that my fiance's kids listen to. I refer to it as the I want to slit your throat or somebody else's music!

Anything 80's (Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Night Ranger, Madonna, The Gap Band, Fine Young Cannibals, The Cure, Mr.Mister, Beastie Boys, Grandmaster Flash, XTC etc... don't matter, not much I don't like the from the 80's or own and pirated)

Almost anything from the 70's. If it's folksy Like Jim Croce, not a fan, if it's too jam band like the obscure Dead stuff not a fan but I span from Led Zeppelin, Yes, Rush, The Clash, Bowie, Chicago, Kiss, Little River Band, Bee Gees, Kc And The Sunshine Band, Issac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield etc...)

90's Alice in chains, Soundgarden, STP, RHCP, Mark Morrison, Envogue, Sunny Day Real Estate to stuff like Natalie Imbruglia, or Moby, Chemical Brothers... Hated Nirvana, hate Radiohead outside of 2 songs. Not a big fan of the singer songwriter types.

2000's. Liked the heavier stuff that popped up in the mainstream at the beginning of the decade but it's been pretty much the same sound since. Hip Hop doesnt do much for me in this day and age, hate Cold Play. I basically spend most of my time these days searching out underground bands and stuff from Europe.

Can also jam out on plenty from the 60's from Booker T and the MG's to some Neil Diamond to Cream and the Yardbirds to Tommy James and the Shondells, The Beatles, Stone and The Who (who kinda one way or the other span 3 decades) etc...

Not to mention my collection of death metal/Thrash cassettes and cd's from the late 80's to early 90's like Morbid Angel, Obituary, Slayer, Deicide etc...

I really like it all but grew up on rap. I have seen snoop, dre, onyx, boss, and run dmc in concert. I don't know... the whole rap culture really intrigued me growing up. As I have gotten older...I still enjoy rap but I have gotten into country recently.

Sounds I like:

1) Biggie
2) Pac
3) Eminem
4) Metallica
5) Linkin Park
6) Nas
7) Garth Brooks
8] Stained
9) Dave Matthews Band
10) Lionel Ritchie
interesting list... how does Lionel Richie get on it? Everybody 90's or later.

In 1981, when I was 8 y/o I discovered music. Shortly after I bought 3 tapes, Steve Miller Band (abracadabra), Survivor (eye of the tiger), and Lionel Ritchie (Hello, Penny Lover). Of those 3, I continued to appreciate Lionel well into my adult years. His greatest hits CD is awesome. The rest of the 80's was horrid...well except for 1985 when I discovered rap. I bought a rap mix tape looking for the Super Bowl shuffle. I found it but it also had 2 songs on it by Slick Rick. I was like :shock: It was on from there...public enemy, run dmc, beastie boys and then the group that changed the way I thought about rap...NWA.
The COOLEST thing about it is that I guessed that from that crew you had to be 3 or 4 years younger than me (37, soon to be 38).

I'm with you, kid... Nice list... as I age, my list gets wider...

ON a side note, I recently proved to my 15-year old daughter that with rap, it actually doesn't matter what you say... that a cool beat could actually make a hit.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-ljwMvR-2M

Well Im a little late to the party here, but thought I'd chime in. SMG, you have my exact taste. I have nothing but rap/hip hop and Dave Matthews in my collection. And yes, lately been hearing more country since I got Sirius Satellite radio, and dig some of it. Nothing beats the Backspin channel on there. Classic rap hits all day...fresh.

But really I love all music pretty much. I dig 80's bands too, rock, you name it. But rap is my first choice.

I can't believe no one mentioned Rusted Root, good Pittsburgh band. They were awesome.

Wow!!!

Where do I begin with this one? My musical tastes are all over the place. But at the end of the day, I am a confirmed jazz and blues head.

I've seen several of the great players in both categories. Many have now passed, but the music lives on and the jazz and blues are genres are always evolving and there are some great players that are carrying the torch for both musical forms.

In jazz, I have grown to enjoy a lot of post-bop, experimental, fusion and acid jazz. Lots of guitars, of course. But also a lot of pianos, synthesizers, drums, electric and acoustic bass. Jazz is great because for everything I've heard, I'm only scratching the surface of what I could hear.

Some of my favorite players read like a list of who's who from yesterday and today in jazz. Big fan of Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Chick Corea, Bill Evans among others who have set the pace or, as is the case with Herbie and Chick, are still setting the pace. Also enamored of Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Michael Brecker, Joshua Redman, Scott Henderson, Joe Lovano, Keith Jarrett, Charles Earland, among others. I could write forever. Jazz is more than music, it's a lifestyle.

As is blues. Of the many varieties of blues, I prefer West Coast and Piedmont blues, followed closely by Delta and Chicago blues. Love the Blues Harp. Little Walter is, was and will always be the greatest man to ever blow the blues harp. Sonny Boy Williamson, Junior Wells, George "Harmonica" Smith, Charlie Musselwhite, James Cotton and Billy Branch are among the greats in the annals of blues harp. There are many out there now that are setting a new standard like Rod Piazza, James Harman and Rick Estrin are all slugging it out on the circuit and have been for years.

Among the great blues composers you have to have Willie Dixon, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Little Walter and Sonny Boy on the list. So many greats, so little time.

I could go on and on, but you get the idea. I like a lot of what you guys have made mention of here. I used to be much more snobbish about jazz and blues. But the world of music is huge and there is much to like.
