Music ,sweet , music
« on: March 20, 2014, 08:49:56 PM »

Now i have gotten to know a lot of you guys over the past year. You guys obviously see my Freddy Mercury avatar.

Music is ( was ) a big part of my life before i grew into having kids and collecting g.i joe's. So i just wanted to touch base and find out what some of your favorite bands are. Of course we all have the METALLICA, IRON MAIDEN, GUNS AND ROSES, LED ZEPPLIN days.

But more to the point, id like to know what songs really speak to some of you. For instance i myself discovered SOCIAL DISTORTION about 3 years ago. Loved the band ever since !!! ( 99 to life has got to be my all time favorite song ever )

Another band that struck me as really good is OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW ( Im not just mentioning them because of the Darius Rucker waggon wheel cover, That cover in my opinion sucks! Although they are a blue grass band, its blue grass from our generation, you haven't ever heared music like this, I promise!. Mainly there 2nd album ( Big Iron World )

More recently i found me first and the gimmy gimmys ( you have to hear there version of country rhoads, awesome! )

Just trying to keep up the chatter with this post and give us something to talk about other the Joes for 5 min. LOL
Plus im always interested in hearing music i have not discovered.

Megadeth has and will always be my #1.

A few others:
Pink Floyd
Iron Maiden
Classic Rock (60's-80's)
80's Brit synth pop

This was one of the few highlights of the '00's for me.

Ah yes Waters and Gilmour reunited.  Pink floyed def. in my top 5 bands. Its a shame whenever you see one of there shows, the set list is always the same. Always playin there 15 most famous songs.

This is my favorite Floyed song.

The Clash # 1
70s pre punk
Late 70s British/yankee punk
80s American hardcore (Bad Brains, Black Flag, DRI, Cro Mags for a few examples)
Insert lots of street punk (krum bums,the unseen, monster squad, government warning, the virus )
Mix in some Social Distortion some old school country some garage surf and some thrash metal with .....a case of beer. ... Awesome!

Basically. I could spend 3 days listing bands I like from the Beatles and hank Williams all the way to Municipal Waste and Havoc!

My uncles 70 yrs old, and he's always working in his garage with The Cure full blast on the stereo. ALWAYS with the cure.
Don't get me wrong. I like The Cure but not none stop all day every day. So i brought him the KILLERS battle born cd. He liked it, he was like " wow, there good where did you find them ? '' . I was like " wasn't hard, there only the biggest band in the world right now " LOL

Then i lent him the Direct Hits album they just released, that was 2 months ago. Dont think ill see it again. Ill have to buy myself another copy

I realize this an old thread but I'm pretty new here and music is always in my life. So I had to share as this didn't warrant a new thread.

Sacrifice from Scarborough, Ont is #1. REANIMATED!!!!!!!!
Symphony X, George Strait, Simon and Garfunkel, Danny Elfman, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steel Panther, Within Temptation, Venom, Exploited, Chopin, Dixie Chicks, Celtic Frost.
Throw my Ipod on random and stand back
I listen to damn near anything that has guitar in it. Orchestra too.

Utopia by Within Temptation really swims in my head a lot.
I catch myself humming Fireball by Pitbull lately.

My youngest told me this: "Music is like candy. You throw away the rappers."
