Music Your Favorite band

Recommended Posts

I love Music. Music is constantly in my house. We have a guitar, bass ,acoustic guitar, Drum set, and a piano in my basement where we jam.

I listen to so much music like Mute Math, Coldplay, Muse ,John Mayer ,RHCP , Ac/DC, Van Halen, Jason Mraz, Victor Wooten, Ben Folds, etc.

But I cannot have a favorite band because of all the music they create it's just to hard to come to a conclusion.

But if you have or haven't decided your favorite band post anyway I'd really like to know!

Can't realy stick out particular "band" other than Alan Parsons Project. (if that even counts)

Sure there's alot of songs I like from acouple bands but idk... 1 or 2 songs I like doesn't realy fall under a favourite band. /shrug

all you hip kids need to go back in time and check out [B]Gin Blossoms[/B]. They arnt that old... and they were pretty inovative for their time, you probably will recognise a couple of their songs. most of the people i show them to follow the same course of thought... "hey... i remember this song! ilike this band."

Music is so prevalent in my mind that I couldnt possibly pick a favorite band. That subject should come with an asterisk beside because it is always "subject to change"

I guess I can list some bands that I couldnt stop listening to:

Kanye West
Hillsong United
Jay-Z
Linkin Park(old Linkin park)
Beetles(they finally broke me)
Blink-182
Coldplay
Ludacris
Nas
The Game
Eminem
Lil Wayne
Wu Tang Clan (and all the members seperately)
David Crowder
Chris Tomlin
The Fray
Matt & Kim
Michael Jackson
George Clinton
Mos Def

Too many great artists with so many hot tracks. I wish I could list them all.

It'd be nearly impossible for me to choose one artist above the rest. I used to be obsessed with rankings/lists/ratings etc. etc. But I got over that and learned just to enjoy what I enjoy not put too much thought into what's better than what. There are a few musical artists that immediately spring to mind though.

[b]Radiohead[/b] is a band that I love to death. One of the few bands that I literally enjoy their entire discography. Most Radiohead fans seem to split into pre-Kid A and post-Kid A camps. But I truly enjoy it all. The Bends is probably my favorite album of theirs, with In Rainbows a close 2nd.

[b]The Beatles[/b] are a pretty cliche choice, but their music has been with me since I was a child. And it shows no signs of stopping it's immense impact on my life.

the [b]Wu-Tang Clan[/b] is another favorite and I basically consider them the Beatles of hip-hop culture. They are a 9 man ensemble of some of the best MCs ever to touch the mic. Their initial string of albums in the 90s is unparalleled in it's genre. They opened with 36 Chambers, which is arguably the best rap album ever. And followed with solo classics from Method Man (Tical), Ghostface (Ironman), GZA (Liquid Swords), and Raekwon (Only Built 4 Cuban Linx). Then they topped it off with a mammoth double LP Wu-Tang Forever. It catches a lot of flack for being inconsistent, but I couldn't disagree more. The beats are incredible as ever and everyone is on point lyrically.

The Flaming Lips, Brand New, and Nas would also be tangled up there somewhere. Brand New's Deja Entendu album got me through teenage life. Nas is an incredible word smith who has remained relevant since his debut album, Illmatic, dropped in the early 90s. And The Flaming Lips' trippy music and good vibes lift my spirits no matter what I'm going through.

Tegan & Sara. I have never related to anything any better, and I have so many wonderful memories and feelings associated with them. This, plus the fact that the music is just really good, makes me think their album The Con is the best thing in existence.

[FONT="Palatino Linotype"]I don't really have a favorite...

Between the Buried and Me is my all time favorite though, because they are amazing and really got me into the genre. Coheed and Cambria and Chevelle are my other two all-time favorite bands.

And these bands tickle my fancy...

[SIZE="1"][COLOR="HotPink"]My favorite band is [B]Bloc Party[/B]. On the contrary, the best band of all time is by far [B]the Beatles[/B]. Another thing is, my favorite album is actually an [B]As Cities Burn[/B] album ([I]Hell or High Water[/I]). Bloc Party just speaks to me, all their songs are golden.

[/COLOR][/SIZE][/quote]

Thanks to having a hip boss in High School there were several artist that I got into before they hit it big (Jason Mraz and Yellowcard come to mind) So, come to think of it, I might have you beat on Mraz by a year or two.

Very nice lol I like your taste as well! Almost all the bands i listen to are in there lol except for a few. Metal is amazing. The way metalheads can connect music together to sound like that is amazing. I know maaaany people hate metal for the screaming and stuff... But really, I dont listen to it just for the screamin, I listen to it for the instruments because they are always insane at playing them, especially drums(Im a drummer so Ive always been interested lol).

Victor Wooten? My dad LOVES Victor Wooten -- he is a musician and Victor is one of his influences. I am really surprised to hear someone else besides my dad talk about him I guess. Victor Wooten is a really great musician, though, not enough people listen to great music these days! :D

And I love Muse <3

[FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Agreed. They seem to have appeared on several people's list, but I'm gonna say it again.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT]
[FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue][B]The Beatles[/B] = absolute favorite until the end of time.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT]
[FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Probably has something to do with the fact that my dad listened to them a lot. But as a friend of mine once said (and I'm paraphrasing this), "Everything the Beatles did they did better than everyone else. Even their worst album was freaking great."[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT]
[FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]As for more recent stuff, my general favorite would have to be [B]Tool[/B]. Pretentious? Certainly. Does it matter? Not in the least.[/COLOR][/FONT]
