Mine has changed up a bit.

Since the stories about Manson dropped I literally can't listen to him anymore. I also largely don't care for Dream Theater or prog rock anymore... or I just have to be in the mood for them.

Otherwise, most of the list still applies and I greatly love listening to any of them... but I tend to gravitate towards just a few:

Rammstein
The Stupendium (very talented songs based on games and nerd stuff)
Nightwish
Blind Guardian
Kamelot
Disturbed
Sabaton (sometimes)
A metric fuckton of YouTube artists that do metal covers
Peter Hollens

I've also found I enjoy Lil Nas X

I don't even know if I HAVE a favorite band any more? It's like I listed mostly friends' bands the last time, which was *Jumps back a sex four years ago.

Namely (friends' bands):
The Dread Crew of Oddwood (they played my wedding)
Poxy Boggards
Kirby's Dream Band
Old Man Wizard
Vic Viper
Bonehenge

I still listen to them, but they haven't really put out anything new in a while.

Favorites that are endured that I'm not personally friends with:
Metallica
Flogging Molly
Dropkick Murpheys
The Dreadnoughts
The Fratellis
Gogol Bordello
Dusty Rhodes and the River Band
Rumjacks

I've been listening to so many different things right now, just to broaden my tastes a bit.

Right now it's a lot of:
Tom Waits
Nick Cave
Matt Berry
Howlin' Wolf
Flat Duo Jets
Squirrel Nut Zippers
Billie Holiday
Nina Simone
Son House
Blind Willie Johnson
Bessie Smith
Memphis Minnie
Ma Rainey
Scott Joplin

A lot of jazz, blues, ragtime, southern gothic, rockabilly, psychobilly, big band.

Feeder.

If anyone knows of them here (which I doubt), it’s probably either for “High” or “Buck Rogers”. The former got to #24 in the US charts in 1997, while the latter was used in the film “Behind Enemy Lines”.

Still, I have much of their material - I should upload an image of my collection really fairly soon.

Several of these have definitely fallen off the list (can't stand Merry Wives these days.) And hell, Sonic Transducer is now Voidcrush.

Hmm...


My favorites these days:

The Dread Crew of Oddwood
Flogging Molly
Poxy Boggards
Kirby's Dream Band
Old Man Wizard
Gogol Bordello
Alestorm

But if we're counting all the bands whose music I like over most others:

Dropkick Murphys
Dethklok

Jonathan Coulton
The Rayford Bros
Johnny Cash
Radioactive Chickenheads
Old Crow Medicine Show
Ninja Sex Party
Tartanic
Korpiklaani
Peter Hollens
The Killers
The Rumjacks
The Pirates Charles
Reel Big Fish


There may be others. I did write quite a few more, but ended up removing them, even bumping several from favorites down to the second list. I've honed it a bit.

But there's also these...


Guilty pleasures:

Ricky Martin
Shakira
PSY

Wow... 100, and that is inevitably forgetting some.


Hate to bump a twelve year old thread but want to add some things to this thread.

Seriously Elara?! No Gary Numan in that list? If it weren't for him then there would be no Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and Fear Factory along with related bands as they all pretty much cited him and early Ministry (1980's material before they turned to industrial metal) as major influences. Add in some other artists also from the New wave and synthpop craze of the 80's such as Depeche Mode and Eurythmics (which I'm surprised you like) and you've got the bands that influenced Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and Fear Factory among others. Before I end this portion of my reply, I will leave this song for Elara. Let me know how you like it. Just remember that without this song, there would be no Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and Fear Factory among others. Also, do you like Icehouse (A 1980's band similar to Oingo Boingo)




Anyways, I listen to everything that is good except Christian (unless it's Skillet or similar bands) and Country (unless it's played on an Adult Contemporary station)


EDIT: Listened to Oingo Boingo last night and Elara was not kidding when she said Danny Elfman always rocks.

I have a few favorites since i like different kinds of music, Dream Theater and Symphony X are my favorite progressive rock bands, Michael Angelo Batio for metal (the best shredder I've ever heard), The Stan Kenton Orchestra for jazz, and I also like Yanni who does new age. So many artists make good electronica and techno, ranging from Gorillaz to 2 Unlimited. Also, Dream Theater also has done several side projects like Liquid Tension Experiment, Suspended Animation, and James Labrie's solo album. I like Coheed and Cambria now just because of how high the singer's voice is, it's pretty funny.

I'm sure theres more. I like the one song that I've ever heard from DevilDriver-Digging up the Corpses, but I haven't heard more of their stuff. oh yea I think system of a down is good too.


The only Devildriver song that I have is "Nothing's Wrong?", which is a great song, though I have to admit that their album could have been better.
