    Favorite bands/artists

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Crazy Ivan, Jan 14, 2007.

    This topic may have been posted before, but I just wanted to put mine up.

    (I like a lot of rock and roll from the 70s and 80s. which explains some of the contents of the below list: )

    The Beatles
    The Rolling Stones
    Aerosmith
    Electric Light Orchestra
    Billy Joel
    Fleetwood Mac
    Bruce Springsteen
    Queen
    Chicago
    Steppenwolf
    Pink Floyd
    The Blues Brothers
    Sly and the Family Stone
    ABBA
    Three Dog Night

    Other bands I like who have been producing more recently are:

    Jimmy Buffett
    They Might Be Giants
    Barenaked Ladies
    OK Go
    Gorillaz
    Santana
    Train
    Dixie Chicks (Yes, it's true >.>)
    Little Feat

    I'll probably add more bands later. In the meantime, make sure to post your own favorites and discuss other's choices (but keep it friendly)!

    Incubus
    Staind
    Wolfmother is pretty cool...
    um Michael Buble?
    I like pretty much everything except the mindless screaming of crap that cannot be understood. Jazz, swing and classical I do listen too and like cause it relaxes me. I only listen to it on occasion, just like pop music. But Rock and a little heavy stuff is okay by me!

    I like a wide variety. I can't listen to a bunch of stuff that just sounds the same. Some of my favorites:

    Jimmy Eat World
    Aerosmith
    Mindless Self Indulgence
    Faith No More
    Burden Brothers
    Tool
    Queen
    Jeff Buckley
    Tomahawk
    The Goo Goo Dolls
    Mr. Bungle
    Toadies
    REM
    Sufjan Stevens
    The Dillinger Escape Plan
    Deftones
    Lynyrd Skynyrd

    I make a lot of mix CDs, because it's very rare that I'm in the mood to listen to an entire album from one band. One of the reasons I like Mike Patton and his projects so much (that's Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, and several more that I haven't listed) is that he incorporates so many different music styles and influences into his music.
