Random Band that I listen to: Phish....use to hate them until i started to go to a couple shows. Its a party but has no association with any of the music I listen too.
good stuff right here.
listen to almost all of this especially the NYHC and hatebreed.
some of my other favorites include outburst, sheer terror, side by side, killing time,cro mags,leeway, maximum penalty
some recent LI local bands that are killing it are backtrack and incendiary

also listen to a lot of sabbath, maiden, motorhead, slayer. and hip hop nas, wu tang. gangstarr ect.

although id say my favorite artist/songwriter ever is bruce springsteen.

music rules, ok.

I'm only 18, but I'm all about the classic rock. I listen to all the classic rock that came out of the 60's - 90's. I hate 75% of today's music, that includes metal, the emo wave of music (Every singer practically has a high pitched, whiny voice now), rap, R&B, and hip hop.

Also like some alternative rock and reggae.

ANy Vision of Disorder fans? I believe they were from Long Island and are actually releasing a new album. I loved their early stuff, the Still EP (and the For the Bleeders release) and the S/T but thought they went down hill prett quickly after that. Didn't dig Tim Williams other band, BloodSimple at all. I caught VOD a couple of times in Boston and they were great live.

Mostly listen to punk (Swingin Utters, Sixer, Social D, Lillingtons, etc) now but loved a lot of that late 90's hardcore coming out of NY. NYHC seems to have gotten a little ridiculous (crews, hip hop/tough guy culture) over the years but there were a ton of bands I used to dig.

Glad to see Sheer Terror is playing shows for however long it lasts. That last Joe Coffee was better then the first one but is quite a departure from Sheer Terror. Not really digging Agnost Front anymore, there last one seemed like an attempt to get current and sounded like so much other generic metalcore. I get blasted for it since there early stuff is considered sacred to the genre but Roit Riot Upstart is my favorite CD of there's.

REM was great for their time as an indie band from 1982-1988 or, but I know Athens is a bit of a distance, but will have to say Black Crowes for Atlanta.

REM put out a lot of good stuff post 1988, like "Automatic for the People". Arguably their best album.

Dan Bern is really funny. I've seen him live probably 8 times now. I try to go to at least one of his NYC shows a year. I wouldn't be surprised if he wrote a revision of Tiger Woods.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1BUCo102Z0 Here's his song about what he'd do if he was President.

Did you see the movie Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story? If you haven't rent it. it's a really fun picture. Anyway, he wrote a lot of the music for that soundtrack.

Checked out a few songs from forever after... pretty good stuff. Thanks for the suggestion.

Also, can't believe I didn't mention this band in the beginning. Definitely my favorite band at the moment... Dragonforce. Epic stuff really.

No, I didn't see it, but I'll get it on the 'ol queue.

Did anyone go to the Los Lobos New Years Eve at the City Winery last year? I got into them after learning the magical sleep-inducing properties of "Night Shade Mary" (with name changed for my daughter). It's $100 a ticket, but that's not too much for NYE thing...

Cheers,

Actually I hate most of the ******** that passes for indie nowadays as well. None of it has any balls and I need music to have some balls to it. That doesn't necessarily mean heavy. Hell, Johnny Cash's stuff has some set of balls.

I just don't like much of the hardcore mentioned past 1983 with a few notable exceptions, and most of the hardcore that came out of NY/LI after the late 80's just seemed like all the jocks on the high school football teams traded in their shoulder pads and helmets for guitars and amps. I tend to call it "ape-core".

Not trying to pick a fight with anyone here. Everyone's entitled to like what they want and I'm sure more than a few of you would think my taste sucks. But music is the most important thing in my life and I tend to be very opinionated about it.

I go with Reckoning for their best album, but Out of Time was good, just had some throwaway songs on the 2nd phase of their career, and then post Bill Berry it has been a bit lackluster.

I mostly dig into the classics. I'm a huge huge Stones fan, but, some of my other favorites are Floyd, Bruce, Zeppelin, Dire Straits, The The Beatles... Mostly everything from around that era. I'm a product of my dad and uncles record collection since I was a child.

I'm 26 so of coarse there is the odd mixture of 90's punk bands thrown in the mix. Nofx, Lagwagon, Face to Face. That whole SoCal sound. Along with the third wave Ska like Less than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Catch 22, Big D and the Kids Table.

More recently I've been more into indie stuff like, Silversun Pickups, Metric, Phoenix, the Strokes.

And you got to leave room for some good hip hop, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Dead Prez, Kanye West, Outkast. Some older stuff like B.I.G., Dre, Snoop Dogg.

I'm all over the place hahaha.

I know it's yesterday's news, but do you like the Wrens? When you say indie and 'balls', I think The Wrens. I've never seen them live, but I'm sure it'd be a blast.

I've never heard their stuff but I definitely know the name. I'll check it out and let you know what I think. Sounds promising though.

And finally, The Replacements better than Husker DŁ? Anyway, I know it's just a question of taste... Nice effort!

A little bit of both. Garth Brooks, Darryl Worley, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, and others. Old school like Kenny Rogers and that type of country.

If we're going to talk about fun pictures with great soundtracks you have to include Spinal Tap and The Commitments.

The Ramones might be NYCs most influential band, but give me The Talking Heads or Beastie Boys (who are possibly just as influential) as NYCs greatest bands.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned KISS as a NYC band, those guys have been around forever (and I do mean forever)

I like all types of music with the exception of country (which is super popular here in VT) but mostly listen to older metal (Metallica, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Queensryche) and alternative.
