I listen to anything I think sounds good. 20GB of assorted MP3s, of multiple genres says so. Rock, Rap, Country, Jazz, Classical, etc.. I could run about 10 different radio stations. :lol:

I've been playing Gwar's "Violence has Arrived" and "War Party" in my car for about 2 months now.

Other favorites in heavy rotation lately are Lagwagon (my all time fave), Chixdiggit!, Snuff, Consumed, (old) Anthrax, (old) Metallica, De La Soul, Naked Raygun, Superchunk and Soul Coughing.

Here's me and my buddies on our way to the Gwar show wearing the Gwar shirts I made (I'm the one on the right who is already half in the bag):

I'm also a large New Order fan. I've owned every record since back in the Joy Division days... on vinyl even. :p

My recent purchases are:

David Bowie- Reality

Moby- Hotel

Daft Punk- Human After All

U2- How to Dismantle...

The Features- Exhibit A

The Tubes- World Tour 2001

I'm also a collector of '70s and '80s music, all genres be it new wave, dance, pop, rock, electro, '80s rap (back when the music was about music and not how many "busters" you "capped") etc. etc.

My tastes extend in all directions.. except three: country, heavy metal and modern rap. Those genres that are wasted on me in all ways, just incoherant noise to me.

Well, I am not going to give a laundry list of my favorites, but I need to ask...

WHERE ARE AEROSMITH AND THIN LIZZY ON YOUR LISTS?!

I don't think I saw either listed yet...and for that I am ashamed to be a MWer.

Thin Lizzy is a great band, real pioneers... especially with the whole "two drive guitars" thing. They sort of started that and no one gives them credit really. I picked up Dedication a few years ago, great compilation if you want a comprehensive TL fix and don't want to buy all their albums.

Then again Lizzy to most people is "boys are back in town" and that's about it. Too Bad PPL had to OD otherwise they might have made some more great stuff.

A Perfect Cicle. Tool, NIN, White Zombie, Static X, Filter, Slipknot, Jawbreaker, At the Drive-in, Operation Ivy, old Bad Religion, and Rage Against the Machine.

If I'm feeling more social it's more like Incubus, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Grand Funk Railroad, BTO, Beasties, God Lives Underwater...

Eclectic... kinda.

Funny that... a bunch of people who love 80s bands on a Macross website :)

My taste is all over the place...ska/blue beat, two-tone, oldies, motown soul, classic rock, punk (but I despise hardcore and emo), oi/streetpunk, indie rock, 80s, classical/orchestral, some electronica (does Vangelis count?), Jpop/asian, etc...

Overall, my favorite genre is probably motown soul, e.g., Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Marvin Gaye, Temptations, The Supremes (best girl band ever!), etc...

But my roots are in punk. Off the top of my head, if I had to list my top 3 bands...

1. The Jam (UK, 70/80s)

2. The Templars (NYC, 90s)

3. Fugazi (DC, 90s)

....and honorable mention: The Clash (UK, 70/80s)

However, I'm really digging Asian pop at the moment. Anyone like the Jpop band Puffy (AmiYumi)? Although they cross many genres, they tend to have an indie rock sound mixed with Japanese cuteness. I saw them last year in SF (@ the Filmore). Their song, "Friends" (Tomodachi), has the same back beat as The Jam's "A Town Called Malice" (played in the movie "Hi Fidelity" with John Cusack).

Rock/Metal.

Anywhere from KISS to Iron Maiden to Pantera to Lamb of god etc.

I like Guar.

saddam a go go :D

yeah...gwar rocks!!

they were in toronto last year....missed them, but i did get to see skinny puppy!! :D possibly the best concert i've ever been too! by the way, that concert i went to will be on dvd later this year!

Was it actually skinny puppy? Last time I went to a skinny puppy concert it was just one of the guys from SP and a few other dudes. Was not that great.

i'm not too sure what you might have seen. could have been either one of cevin key's or ohgre's solo projects....could've been download, tear garden, sunnypsyop or anyone of their self titled projects.

the new cd is very good in my opinion and wayne static and danney carey both appear on one song. use less is the title....if you liked the process...this release is similar, only a lot better......and after 11 years since the last, it better damn well be!!! in case you're wondering...it's called greater wrong of the right

track listing

1. i'mmortal

2. pro-test

3. empte

4. neuwerld

5. ghostman

6. downsizer

7. past present

8. use less

9. goneja

10. daddyuwarbash

to see images of the concert i went to go to litany or skinny puppy faq and lyrical archive

if images are no longer posted, i'm sure a google search will find some.

sorry to hear about your bad experiance though.....i had one when i went to see download....only 1 member showed up and all he did was play some of his solo stuff under the name dead voices on air, and some live remixes of download. the music was good, but it would have been nice to see the whole band..... <_<

hey...anyone interested in buying mac + valk's??? :D

Only the greatest band to ever walk the earth:

Why would you talk about great bands, than post a picture of Motorhead

You couldn't be implying that Motorhead...........doesn't suck? :lol:

Seriously, just kidding, they've got a couple songs that I quite like. They remind me quite a bit of a very little-known Japanese group I like a lot, known as 8-Ball. Drift fans will know them, as they perform the official D1 theme, Need For Speed, outside that they're almost unheard of.

I'm a big Eurobeat fan. Most know it from the mid-90s era Initial D stuf, however, the ID Eurobeat actually came at a sort of bad time in the genre's history. I've been liking a lot in the past few years, and I actually picked up some VERY old "That's Eurobeat" Albums today, enjoying them quite a bit. These are CDs from 1988 we're talking about it, and yet the songs can hold up quite well even today, although they maintain a very 80s sound in many of them. (I wanted to cruise the streets in a white Ferrari looking for drug dealers to bust, listening to many of them!) I'm a big fan of the SCP label's artists, including Fastway and Ace, and also like Dave Rodgers and his semi-successor Matt Land a lot.

J-Pop and J-Rock are up there, although I've moved into being a much bigger eurobeat fan in recent years. Psycho Le Cemu has a few songs I really like. Do As Infinity and Akino Arai are up there on the pop end. I also like the soft J-Rock sound that artists like Galla, and to a slightly harder extent, Seki Tomokazu, have.

I also like music from english speaking countries, as well. Leading my list are The Who. I'm also partial to groups like Zeppelin and even Lynrd Skynrd.

I can tolerate anything except country or new country :wacko: where's the vomit emoticon!

What I listen to mostly now is jazz and world music not the jazzy elevator crap when you go to see your dentist like kenni g & bolton crap.... More like Coltrane, Miles, Parker, and for world Jesse Cook, Natacha Atlas, Nitin Sawhney, etc.

All time faves has to Radiohead, Zeppelin, Hendrix, SRV, Deftones, Smashing Pumpkins, & Rage Against the Machine

Thin Lizzy indeed rocks (as does your love for the sacred vinyl - go JSA! )

But I can't give them props on the dual lead guitar thing when Duane Allman and Dickie Betts pretty much defined that whole movement.

But I can rock out to Cowboy Song whenever the hell I like. ;)

Kenny G and such aren't Jazz, they're glorified easy listening. Interesting note, Kenny G totalled my cousin's car! Popped out of a driveway right into him. Cousin got a new car out of it, though, so not a bad deal.

I own the Thin Lizzy Life/Live album and enjoy it very much

JsARCLIGHT:

Though I can't find the source anymore but I read a Gary Moore interview where

he spoke about Phil, claiming he actually tried to keep him busy, because since

Lizzy broke up, Phil fell into a hole, he wasn't happy with the fact his band fell apart

and this manifested in more drug-use

I'm one step ahead of a lot of people... I or my father bought most of these albums on vinyl as they came out and I still have most of them. Nothing beats that hiss of an LP... then again I've "repurchased" all those old flats on CD just so I can keep them in the best shape possible. Then again nothing beats whipping out Boston/Boston original LP and firing it up... or some BOC or the Tubes.

But I can't give them props on the dual lead guitar thing when Duane Allman and Dickie Betts pretty much defined that whole movement.

I keep forgetting the darn Allmans. I think I have a hole in my head sometimes.

But I can rock out to Cowboy Song whenever the hell I like.

My personal Lizzy pics are Whisky in the Jar and Dancin' in the Moonlight.
