Some of my favorite shows I've seen include

Kansas at a Rib and Wings festival in Wash. County.
Page and Plant at Civic Arena
Alien Ant Farm in some ghetto club in Detroit
Rolling Rock Town Fair 1 and 2, I liked 2 better
Incubus at Penn State
Counting Crows and Live at Starlake, awesome
Amanda Palmer in San Diego
Weezer in San Diego.

I need to start going to more shows. I used to go all the time from ages 17-20. Then I got older, had new responsibilities and haven't really been to many shows even though I live in the west coast and there's always a show to see.

Fall Out Boy - Take This To Your Grave
Kanye West - College Dropout
Every Time I Die - Gutter Phenomenon
Boys Night Out - Trainwreck
Five Iron Frenzy - Proof That The Youth Are Revolting
MxPx - Teenage Politics (totally for nostalgic purposes)

MeWithoutYou - Brother, Sister
Good stuff on the bolded.

I've been in a musical rut for awhile now. Like 10 years. Nothing new I hear appeals to me, therefore I listen to less and less, so less to choose from...vicious cycle. Part of that is probably getting old and having kids.

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.

Yeah I definitely understand. I was really young when I started listening to ska and punk/pop punk (like 3rd grade) because of my older sister so my tastes evolved as I hit high school. Bands like MxPx, Goldfinger, FIF, and Ataris where either on the later stages of their careers or had shifted into territory that changed why I liked them.

Emo (for lack of a better word since I hate the description) and Post Hardcore provided my influences when I was old enough to go to shows. Bands like the ones you alluded to are in some senses a dying breed (yet their influence in music today is undeniable). The old pop punk of MxPx, NOFX, and Blink 182 (as examples) have paved the way for the "new" pop punk of New Found Glory (although they've been around for 15 years), Fall Out Boy (old), Set Your Goals, Four Year Strong, The Wonder Years, etc.

Another I forget ealier, Less Than Jake

Additionally in the MxPx / FIF genre, I was into Relient K for awhile too.

MxPx I latched onto in 96 with Life in General, then went back and picked up Teenage Politics. I am the same age as those guys, 35 now, so I've followed pretty closely. I rarely buy a new album anymore, but if MxPx or RBF release something, I get it that day.

I've seen NFG live a few times too. In the past 2 years, I've only been to 2 shows, 311 both this past summer and last summer.

Now my new music is introduced by my kids listening to Radio Disney in the car.

I understand this, thanks for the correction.

No problem dude. We metalheads gotta help each other.

Since you dig Lamb Of God's "Ashes Of The Wake" album, have ya heard any of their other stuff?

Their "Killadelphia" live album (which is also available on DVD that features the same concert as the one on the disk as well as like a huge "behind the scenes" documentary on the band) is so sick. Easily one of my top 3 favourite live metal albums ever.

Here's the live DVD clip of them doing "Laid To Rest" from that Killadelphia gig.

The Top 10 Albums thing came up over at the Entertainment board, so yeah...

I really wanted to just hold it to one album per band...but I really couldn't leave Long Drive off...just too important to me (and I'm probably the only person on the planet that rates it above The Moon & Antarctica...which probably would also crack the list too, but I won't do 3 from the same band). I listed 11 to make up for the dual Mousing...

Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West


Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven


Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea


The Beatles - Eponymous Album (The White Album)


Radiohead - OK Computer


Arcade Fire - Funeral


Sigur Rs - gtis Byrjun


Velvet Undeground - Loaded


Modest Mouse - This Is A Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About


Okkervil River - Black Sheep Boy


Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain

I'm all over the map with my music taste but right now I'm listening to a lot of Flogging Molly.

Gotta give a mention to Gwar as without question the best concert I've ever seen. Talk about putting on a show. I know... I know...

Love this video and yes I listen to others tracks on YT. See, I no longer buy CD's unless I'm really pumped for a song or group. Between the Internets and Sirius radio I fulfill all my music needs. If I listen to my music at work nothing would get done.

I love metal, but am quite Disturbed(pun intended) that this group hasn't even been mentioned yet below.



Glad to see Queen mentioned, that would be one of my top bands of all time with the Doors.

We'ed have to have a top 20 or 30 bands, just way to many.

I'm never surprised to find a canfan, their influence is so pervasive. But I do wish more people were aware of them and the other krautrock bands. You'd think with bands like Radiohead, The Fall, and The Flaming Lips citing them as an influence they'd be more well known.

Are any of you into Cloud Cult?

I'm not sure where I originally got turned onto them but every now and then I spend hours listening to their stuff on youtube. It's definitely not in my normal realm but I really like it (once in a while).

Who is the greatest band ever (after Led Zeppelin of course)? Genesis while they will still a prog band.

What is the best concert experience you've had? Thanksgiving Eve of 1978 or 1979. Tom Petty opening, Edgar Winter second, and J. Geils as the headliner.

Top 5 bands all-time? The Beatles, Allman Brothers, Genesis, The Who, Pink Floyd

Top 10 albums all-time?
Beatles - Rubber Soul
The Who - Sell Out
Genesis - Selling England by the Pound
Pink Floyd - wish You Were Here
Allman Brother - Live at the Fillmore East
Bob Marley and the Wailers - Natty Dread
Grateful Dead - American Beauty
Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick
Van Morrison - Moondance
Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus

What CD is in your car player right now (or queued up on your ipod)? Listen to Pandora all day long at work. Wide variety of things.

What is the best current band concert experience you've had? Have not been to a concert in a long time.

If you were going on survivor and could only take one album, what would it be? Thick as a Brick. Amazing composition, I never get tired of listening to it.

I'll second the Gwar love. Not a huge fan of their music but their show was awesome. I saw them at Bamboozle in Jersey in 2009 and it was ridiculous.

Tom Petty opening for anybody, especially for J. Geils, is a travesty.

I never got into Edgar Winter. Can't name anything besides Frankenstein. I should probably look into his music more, he's supposed to be very talented.

Hey sorry I've been AWOL, all. I've been busy trying to figure out if I'm staying in the states or taking an offer from Charles University and moving to Prague.

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.

Growing up, hearing With or Without You was the song that started my U2 love (Vertigo almost killed it) but thats why I went TJT over AB. AB is a better album as a whole, but the singles on TJT are second to none. Little fun fact, AB came out on my 4th birthday!

I have a hard time getting into newer music, but Gaslight Anthem and now Horrible Crowes are definitely 2 of my favorites.
