Easier to link my last.fm profile (http://www.last.fm/user/dea_anonyma) here than to make a massive list. It's accurate enough from 2006 to the present.

High school me would weigh in heavier on Midnight Oil, the Replacements, Sonic Youth and the Pretenders, and my college era lists would probably be topped by Lunachicks and a bunch of bands that were kicking around on labels like K, Kill Rock Stars, and Shimmydisc in the 90's.

Yeah, here's my Last.fm too:

Honestly, I stopped really focusing on many bands at some point in the last few years, now I just kind of listen to whatever. Some stuff I picked up on during middle/high school, a few things I found more recently, and then a bunch of music 'inherited' from my mom. Top artists are probably the ones right on my profile, but generally if it's in my charts I like it...

SYSTEM OF A FUCKING DOWN!!

Otherwise I usually listen to classic rock like AC/DC and Pearl Jam.

edit: now thinking of it pearl jam does not really classify as classic, but its still good.

My favourite band is Blood on the Dance Floor, I'm obsessed with them! I've been to see them 3 times (every time they've come to England), I've got about 14 t-shirts and all their albums, and all my friends know who they are now because of my facebook! I've met Jayy Von Monroe once (he is that gorgeous in real life!), and have met Dahvie Vanity twice!

I've always loved clubbing and dance music rather than liking bands, so this is all new to me! Usually my favourite CD's are compilations by Clubland or Ministry of Sound, and I still listen to my old Bonkers CD's now and then.

Can I ask you a question..?
(and please don't take this the wrong way. I just always wanted to chat with a BOTDF fan)
What exactly do you like about them?

Yeah I don't mind questions. Well I first heard of them when I was messing about on Youtube, and someone had used Lovestruck as a video soundtrack. I just loved it instantly, so I asked who it was and they said BOTDF. So I looked up some more of their stuff, and I loved it! I think maybe because I love dance music (I think you call it techno in America), some of BOTDF's stuff is electronic, and has similar elements. I'm not sure, but I do have very different music taste than most people anyway, I'm not into Indie music or RnB. I also fell a bit in love with Jayy when I first saw him, he is gorgeous! And after meeting them, they were so nice, and they come across as fun and nice in their videos.

Shouldn't this thread be in the Media section? I see people talking about music there.

When asked IRL, I'll just say Black Moth Super Rainbow, but when they don't know who that is I'll say Bibio, and when they don't know who that is I'll just say Erykah Badu, and they'll usually know who that is because it's Dallas, but more than likely they'll know her as the woman who stripped down to nothing and mimed being shot at the JFK assassination site for the Window Seat music video.


also, last.fm link in my sig.

Here's my favorites, I suppose... Lately I've been exposed to a lot of new music (new to me, I mean =P) and so, things have been changing:

Chicago (Their late 60s/70s music, not 80s and beyond)
The Beatles
Streetlight Manifesto
The Doors
Blood, Sweat & Tears
Fleet Foxes
Gryphon
Bread
Brainchild (1970 Brass Rock band)
Eagles
The Divine Comedy
Boston
America
Afroskull
Egg

I'll stop it there... I would have only listed a "Top 5", but as I said, I'm not sure what my top 5 would even be at this point.

Good distinction...Chicago with Terry Kath and that brass section is amazing, and a world away from whatever the hell they thought they were doing in the 80's.

To be honest, that's kind of how I feel about the 80s in general. :p

I do find it sad because most people (my age) recognize Chicago only for their 80s hits, and they like that Chicago, and completely ignore the idea of listening to their early library. :blink:

What makes me the most sad is that the "Brass Rock" genre is nowhere to be found anymore... So under-appreciated. You can find modern bands that play in the style of early hard rock like Led Zeppelin, or psychedelic progressive rock like Pink Floyd, but the 'Brass Rock' genre has no such bands... :cry:

I mean, yes, there is Ska, and some of it is good, but it's not the same.

I like so many genres, but Owl City and Twenty One Pilots are my favourite musicians. I also like a lot of Christian and non-Christian rock, like Skillet and Black Veil Brides and Of Mice and Men. It really depends on mood. I'll even listen to One Direction. :wtf:

Wow! I hadn't expected to learn that many people hear like to listen to metal or rock.

I myself am a huge fan of Finish (real) metal bands. My favourite: Children of Bodom. Unfortunately I could not got to one of the "I worship chaos"-concerts. It is the first tour I've missed since the "Are you dead yead"-tour.
I first heard of them, when I was on an exchange in Finland. The brother of my exchange partner showed them to me. He even made me a CD with some of their songs. (and a little bit of Nightwish). Even though I bought all albums, I still keep that CD.

But I also like Amon Amarth and Fintroll.

From Sweden I like Backyard Babies, Psychopunch and Danko Jones (I know, he's Canadian, but he under contract with a Swedish label).

I also love to listen to 50ies and 60ies Rock'n'Roll.


Edit: I just read that Johnny Depp is thinking about becoming a full-time musician. I like his band! :bunny:

radiohead is my all time favourite and primarily what i i listen to since their discography is huge and rarely ever get bored of music (and i listen and love thom yorke's solo efforts too). other than that, i also like the smiths, joy division and the sex pistols, but a lot of what i listen to is classical music from various periods so i only have a small pool of favourite bands.

My favorite genre of all is New Age. I seem to be unique in that. :(

My favorite New Age groups are:
Delerium
Enigma
Amethystium
Mythos
Lesiem
Karunesh

Also really loving melodic dubstep, but most I like are indies.
I'm a huge Lindsey Stirling fan which seems kind of a New Age dubstep mix.

Usually, only japanese Dark/Metal/Gothic bands with female vocals...
My top 10:

1. Yousei Teikoku
2. Dazzle Vision
3. Ali Project
4. Wagakki Band
5. DOLL $ BOXX
6. Band-Maid
7. Asriel
8. Anarchy Stone
9. BabyMetal
10. Kalafina

But I also like some non-japanese bands, like Meden Agan, L'ame Immortelle and Paramore.

PANDAQUEEN
8th May 2016, 2:10 AM
*Guns n Roses
*Alice Cooper (before and after Mr. Furnier became Mr. Cooper)
*Dead or Alive
*Michael Fortunati
*Smile.DK
*E-rotic (you can guess what they sing about)
*S.E.X. Appeal (" ")
*Acting Lovers (" ")

As vulgar as the last 3 bands mentioned may seem, they aren't nearly as vulgar as say, 2 Live Crew? Long story short, thank the gods for recycling shops that sell anything worth selling secondhand.

In no particular order

-Twenty One Pilots (I've seen them twice, seeing them a third time next year)
-Skillet (Seen them once)
-The Birthday Massacre (I really want to see them)
-Pierce The Veil (I'm seeing them later this year, I forgot about how much I loved them!)

Musician-wise...
-Owl City
-Lights
-Lindsey Stirling (Currently wearing a Lindsey Stirling shirt)
-Tegan & Sara (I prefer their pop stuff to their indie stuff, but So Jealous is great)

It's mostly older rock bands for me. I just don't really like anything modern. So I'll put my list below, and in no real order.

Kiss
Metallica
AC/DC
Motorhead
Guns N Roses
Nirvana
HIM
The Ramones
CKY

Original Kiss, not that imposter lineup they have now. I also prefer Bon Scott era AC/DC a little bit over the Brian Johnson era, I just feel Bon was a better vocalist and song writer. I like the older Metallica more than the later stuff, basically their first four albums are my favorites of all of their stuff. Also, not sure it qualifies as a band but I love me some Weird Al.
