Talking music!?


Since this is the general forum, lets change the subject from Linux to music for a bit!

I listen to anything i like which is basically metal from the 70's and 80's. Some bands: Helloween
Iron Maiden
Iced Earth
Black Sabbath
Guns and roses
and such...

What about you guys?

We kinda got on this topic once in another thread. But oh well.

Some bands I like, as some may already know:

NIN
Tool
Lords of Acid (great music when.. never mind)
Rob Zombie
European dance (trance, electronica, techno)
Eve 6

These are just a few.

Mostly I like alternative for general listening, and dance/club/gothic/weird (NIN) music for everything else.

I mainly listen to the more mainstream 'punk' bands like Offspring (particularly their early stuff), some metal (the 'heavyness' doesn't really mean much to me, either I like it or I don't), and stuff like that. I am completely open to others, though. I very rarely say that 'I do not like ....', but R'n'B is shit (IMO).

Punk didn't die, it just changed, like everything else. But if you want a breaking point, I think it would have to have been with Sid and the Sex Pistols. I am surprised noone mentioned Bad Religion. And since it sounds like most of those here listen to metal or hard rock, i'll have to say that died a while ago too. At least for me when Iron Maiden was all that mattered. But to truly add some of the best music to listen to for 'almost' any occasion, we must add Pink Floyd. With that being said, I listen to everything (yes, really), from Christian music to Classical, to some Country and all in between. Just gotta go with what you're feeling at the moment.

I can listen to almost anything also, except the rap crap where they are talking about shooting the cops and committing crimes and such.

It all in the end depends on my mood. I even like jazz and blues, but only when I want to slow dance and am dressed really elegantly. That normally does not happen.
