Anything classical. Nothing like classical music to wind me down after a long days work. I like rock N roll too but not as much as classical.

Sorry, being ironic in that last post while i figured out the slant of this thread. 'Jam out' confused me. Must be past my sell by date or something cuz i sure as hell don't understand the slang these days. You kids and your MTV generation..... :rolleyes:

Seriously listened to stuff would be:
St. Etienne
Alison Moyet
Ambient trance mixes
Blur
Nick Drake
Travis
Skunk Anansie
Annie lennox
Dreadzone
Ocean Colour scene
stereolab
Clearlake
Radiohead (a little, at times)
Corner shop

And much much more. Usually the quieter end of music, or the more emotive end. I occasionally listen to Chopin's nocturnes for some classy piano tinkling, or if I'm down I'll get maudlin with Faure's requium. Gloomy music is best when you're down to help you realise how glum you're being so you lift yourself out of it. Then it's best to really wig out to something loud and brash.

Oh, and I do like Burt bacharach stuff, just not sung by the man himself. he sounds like someone's strangling him when he sings.
Quite like a blast of Shirley bassey on occasion. Bold and brassy. Or perhaps a chunk of louis Armstrong. My musical tastes are fairly wide and varied. It really depends on the mood I'm in at the time. The only musical instrument I have is my voice.

Any band who constantly compares themselves to the giants of music (ie Our band is a cross between Led Zepplin and the Rolling Stones with a touch of the Beatles).
Any band who proclaims their only recently begun career to be greater than the giants of the music (ie. Oasis will be bigger than the Beatles and Bush will be bigger than Black Sabbath and Led Zepplin).
Chances are if your band is interviewed by Carson Daily we won't be hearing from you in 2 years and I don't want to hear from you now, sorry.

So if I had a band that played music that you liked you wouldn't listen to it if I called it "Dedly"?


Any band who quotes bands with less than a 5 year history as a "major influence."
What's wrong with a band having a favorite band?

I'll admit that he's a talented musician but I can't stand his voice for one thing. He's also comes across as a bit pompous about his role in creating metal. Dave seems to think that only Megadeth and Metallica created the heavy metal that we know today. As much of a fan I am of Metallica they are not responsible for the music that followed. They were part of it but by no means the sole creators. What about Slayer?

In personal interviews, written interviews and in concerts he's more worried about bad mouthing other bands (especially Pantera) and that they only exist because of what he did in the early 80's. Enough Dave, stop trying to toot your own horn. I saw them in concert once and both the opening bands blew them off the stage. Pantera and White Zombie put on a damn fine show. Dave spent most of his time in a verbal fight with some guy in the pit over the fact that he was wearing a hat/shirt of a band other than Megadeth. I left after the first 40 minutes of that.


So if I had a band that played music that you liked you wouldn't listen to it if I called it "Dedly"?

I'm sure there are some great exceptions to my "rule" but most of what I was aiming at was the explosion of new bands with the screwed up names.


What's wrong with a band having a favorite band?

Nothing. A lot of other bands admire other bands work and that's to be expected. Some of the new bands in their interviews say their band of 3 years is influenced by the work of a 5 year old band. Music written so close together is more often a near copy than a distant influence. For this reason I think that most of the pop from the 80's is interchangable. Duran Duran was influenced by the Pet Shop Boys who were influenced by the Tears for Fears. Just a made up example but you get the idea. The orginality is lost when music isn't given time to settle in. MTV is responsible for a lot of these cookie cutter bands.


All I got to say is Metal fans are some of the most vocal when it comes to defending their favorite bands. It's great. I'm just happy to see that you weren't offended by my dig on Fred Durst, then we'd have problems. :D Enjoy your Megadeth Dooku Fett, I'll pass though.

JangoFett96, did you get to see the Incubus show? If so, what did you think?

Personally, I really like the albums, but when I saw them live, I could not believe how boring they were. They'd play a song, then turn off the lights for like five minutes while they prepared for the next song. No rythmn. Also, they unfortunately had to drag the sofa/loveseat out for an "intimate acoustic" rendition of some of their songs. Puhlease! Plug 'em in and rock! Another indication of how bad they were that night was that the opening band, Hoobastank, was better. Hoobastank, for crying out loud! ;)

Best live show ever: Tool.

I have seen alot of shows and I would have to say VNV Nation at Limelight (NYC) Nov. '01 or The Damned at Coney Island High (NYC) several years ago or The Cure at Nassau coliseum in '94 (not sure on this one cuz I've seen them 9 times) or Bauhaus at Hamerstein Ballroom (NYC) a few years back or.....ah forget it. There are just to many to list!:cool:

every once in a while:

Stormie,
No I was not able to see Incubus last night. By the time I found out about it the tickets had already been sold. A few people called into the local radio station here and said it was a decent show but not the best. Obviously Incubus is one of those bands that sounds better in the studio.
You also mentioned that Tool was the best live concert....I like Tool alot and I saw them here in Raleigh, but to me the best live show I have seen is Aerosmith. They were here last September and it was really off the hook!! They did most of their show on stage, but then walked through the crowd and did a set out on the lawn where I was. It was totally amazing. I have to say that has been the best concert I have ever been to.

I have their Praise the Fallen album and think it's great. I'd definately go to a concert if they came around.

My personal picks for best live show:

White Zombie
Pantera
Rammstein: any concert were the lead sing straps fireworks to his body, sets himself on fire and uses a flamethrower to ignite pyrotechnics hanging from the ceiling is alright in my book.
Soulfly
Sepultura
Corrosion of Conformity
KMFDM

My top 3 concerts

1. White Zombie/Pantera
2. Soulfly/Rammstein
3. Sepultura/Pantera

Worst live performance: Type O Negative

I really want to see Gwar in concert. Has anyone here made it to a show?

I saw that episode. Man that was hilarious to watch. Grown men and women wearing foam monster costumes arguing (quite well too) with some white trash folks and some of the audience. Most people get the joke but it's even funnier when they don't and get all fired up. :D

I could never get in to the stuff like AT-AT Man listens to. I can't understand it and it sounds the same to me. What is the difference between rap and hip-hop?

I ain't putting anyones tastes down, just making some comments.

Yes. I totally forgot about seeing No Doubt. That band can definitely put on a live show. I really thought her voice would suffer while she's running all over the place on stage, but it sounds just as strong.

Green Day is also a great show, and another band that sounds just as good live as recorded.

Good choices QLD! :D
