This thread needs more Kurt Vile. He's arty enough for the hipsters, and got the classic rock hooks for everyone else. Also he's a badass fingerpicker.


Wow, he's bad ass

Not that any of you Americans would know who this band is, but the best band of all time for me has got to be The Tragically Hip!

Favorite bands...they seem to change every 5-6 years or so. Right now: The New Pornographers, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists (just a coincidence that I'm going to be a pharmacist in a few years), The Weakerthans, Pavement, The Thermals, David Bowie, Animal Collective...ehh maybe a few others.

My favorite albums...either 'In the Aeroplane Over the Sea' by Neutral Milk Hotel (is there anyone who doesn't love this album?), or 'The Body, the Blood, the Machine' by the Thermals. Honorable mention goes to the Weakerthans' 'Reconstruction Site.'

Guilty pleasure- Rap from the 90s. It's old now, and I never liked it back then, but for some reason I find it highly entertaining now. Not from a musical standpoint, but one of...humor? Sorry Tupac, you're funny to me.

I know so many hockey fans who are obsessed with metal. Never could get into it.

Most of what I listen to is there. All scrobbles are from my collection, not on their radio service.

I saw them at the Limelight in NYC about 1995 and then again in 1997 in some dump in Newark NJ. I remember them taking out "Ol Red Eyes" eyes and cutting off Glen Danzigs head. Both had blood shooting 20' over the crowd. The 95 show was a nice celebration night for the 95 Garden State game champs. (makes devil sign with hand)

Just to tame it down a little... I saw STP at Jones beach around 96. Very, very cool.

I haven't been to a concert in a long time but my next one has to be Faith No More. I've always been a huge fan of anything by Patton.

I just saw on Yahoo that their guitarist died. Article here.

Cory Smoot, guitarist with GWAR, was found dead on the tour bus today following the gore-metal band's performance last night at First Avenue. His death was discovered when his band mates tried to wake him as they crossed the border into Canada. Cause of death has not been determined.

I've been getting into Tom Waits more and more. He probably has the roughest sounding voice ever for a singer but it's unique and he's a heck of a performer.

Great performance and song here

It'd be too hard to list my all time favorite bands, I think. A lot depends on what I'm in the mood for at moment. Bands that usually stick in the rotation regardless:

-Husker Du
-Dinosaur Jr.
-Bad Religion
-Fugazi
-Mission of Burma
-Gorilla Biscuits
-Neurosis
-Red House Painters

What I've been listening to today:

If you like Waits you might want to check out Beefheart, who was the catalyst for Waits' change in artistic direction from Swordfishtrombones onwards (Waits' wife was a huge Beefheart fan and introduced Waits to his music):



Everybody knows Waits and relatively few know Beefheart though, which is a crying shame.

Social Distortion & Rancid are really all I need, though I've recently re-infatuated myself with magic of Eddie Vedder's voice. Particularly I love Mike Ness' gradual moves towards his roots, rather than try to belt out SD from the 80's and 90's.

For instance:

Ever heard of Delorean? Slightly different musically but a similar vibe. Some free songs on their website.

Beefheart rules, even if Jon Huntsman (whadda square) likes him.

Speaking of Beef, I've always thought the Fall were kinda like what Captain Beefheart would have been like, if he grew up as an alcoholic dockworker in Britain who liked Krautrock.

Great song.

I've been listening to alot of old school Lamb Of God lately







It's crazy how much they've evolved and have gotten so much better over the years. With that said though, their older material seems to have a more pissed off, raw, and abrasive quality that hasn't been as present in their last few albums.

They're still a great band though and without a doubt one of my top 5 favourite bands of all time.

Man, I feel more self-conscious about what I've been listening to lately, haha. But here it is anyway :

-The Mission Veo
-The Parlor Mob
-VHS or Beta
-Pure Reason Revolution

I don't really have too much loyalty to specific acts, so in general I won't have more than 5 or 6 songs songs by the same artist in my collection, but those are a few where I have a decent number, and have been going through their stuff lately.

I know all the guys from The Parlor Mob. They used to come into the music studio I worked at all the time. They're awesome, awesome guys, and their band is phenomenal.

- Who is the greatest band ever (after Led Zeppelin of course)? Weezer

- What is the best concert experience you've had? I've been to hundreds of concerts with so many great moments, I'll pick a random one. This is also the best $1 I've ever spent. Saw Andrew W.K. at Duquense for a dollar. During the show everyone was going up on stage. It was really awesome singing into the mic on stage w/ Andrew W.K. himself!

- Top 5 bands all-time? As much as I love music, I don't know if I've ever thought of an answer to this question...

1) Weezer
2) The Hold Steady
3) Arcade Fire
4) LCD Soundsystem
5) Radiohead

- Top 10 albums all-time? I dunno, off the top of my head...

1) Weezer - Pinkerton
2) Weezer - Blue Album
3) Arcade Fire - Funeral
4) Radiohead - Ok Computer
5) The Hold Steady - Boys and Girls in America
6) Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
7) The Shins - Chutes too Narrow
8) Ted Leo and the Pharmacists - Shake the Sheets
9) The Hold Steady - Separation Sunday
10) Matt Pond PA - Several Arrows Later

- What CD is in your car player right now (or queued up on your ipod)? I'm listening to The Pains of Being Pure at Heart right now.

- What is the best current band concert experience you've had? I'm going to see Weezer on a cruise in January. It's going to be unreal. A recent one though, would be LCD Soundsystem's last show at Madison Square Garden. I couldn't believe I got tickets. That was an amazing experience.

- If you were going on survivor and could only take one album, what would it be? Pinkerton.

I love that album by Matt Pond PA. That's definitely in my top 20.

I'm listening to the 20th anniversary covers of U2's Achtung Baby.

This is probably the best cut ...



... and The Killers do a remarkable job of making "Ultra Violet" sound 100 percent like a Killers song.



the Garbage and NIN cuts also are very good. Snow Patrol & Glasvegas are fine. The others are at least respectable; my opinion of them changes from day to day. Initially I really dug the Depeche Mode track but have since cooled on it a bid.

Those two along with Zooropa form my holy trinity of U2 releases. Zooropa is criminally underrated, and the live versions of its songs — especially the stripped-down Bono/Edge "Stay" — are testament to how good that album is.

But the stuff in constant rotation on my mp3 player:

Reel Big Fish, MxPx, 311, Catch-22, Streetlight Manifesto, Goldfinger, FIF, old Ataris, NOFX.
Me First and the Gimme Gimmes never get old to me...but they are certainly an acquired taste. You either love them or hate them, no middle ground.
I can relate to your "musical rut" comment. Looking at your list, you might like stuff like The Have Nots (Boston ska/punk) and Banner Pilot (early Face To Face-ish). I loved a Toronto band called Closet Monster but it seems that they're gone now.

All-time favorite: AFI (esp. Black Sails era but strangely I like everything, even Blaqk Audio)

Top 10 all-time (no particular order, other than AFI I guess)
Kid Dynamite - s/t
Avail - Over The James
No Use For A Name - The Daily Grind
Less Than Jake - Pezcore (maybe Hello Rockview)
Randy - Human Atom Bombs
Screeching Weasel - My Brain Hurts
No Fun At All - No Straight Angles
Bad Religion - Against The Grain
NOFX - White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean
Billy Bragg - Back To Basics (for good measure)

Stuff I've been listening to lately
Bayside - Killing Time
The King Blues - Punk & Poetry
Saves The Day - Bug Sessions EPs
The Lillingtons - all their stuff
The Ataris - End is Forever
