Music taste?

  1. Hey guys
    I'm new to this site. I'll be straight up and say i stumbled upon this site looking for help as i imagine most people do.
    I don't want to just spam and get 5 posts in so i can ask for help because that seems a bit rude..idk. So yeah..lol
    I want to know what kind of music are you guys into? Personally I listen to rock and hip hop. A little bit of everything.
    Some rock bands i like are: Bullet for my valentine, Atreyu, Escape the Fate The Killers, 30 seconds to mars, and others
    hip hop: Akon, flo rida, black eyed peas, lil wayne

    how about you guys?

    I think there is a pretty large number of last.fm users here - we even have a Techspot group. Take a look at http://www.last.fm/group/TechSpot - you'll also notice that many who did not join the group are actually just using the same nick on the TS forums as in Last.fm

    Not being prejudiced, to me there are just 2 kinds of music: what sounds good and what doesn’t. The sub-categories: rock, pop, folk, country, classical, foreign, oldies, instrumental etc, are only relevant for classification purposes, not for choosing.

    I listen to a mix of classical rock and classical music. There are some exceptions, but those are my main genres.

    Wow that's really close to what I like!

    I like classic rock bands like no connection, and orchestra music from games. I will also occasionally Liston to techno but only if its really good. I have had some trouble finding any music as good as the music in game soundtracks though.

    Starcraft ProScene music! Its mostly rock. Almost everything or band I listen to has been used in a starcraft intro, but theres also general techno, instrumentals, and some various others.
    The all-time proscene music thread at teamliquid. I'm hoping that isn't against forum rules..

    My top bands are slipknot, metallica, muse, and system of a down. They are all in their own genre of music, so that tells you what I listen to. I think I'll look into the last.fm page now....

    oh and dont forget CCR

    I thought I was largely ecclectic and could listen to almost any type of music - but having just had to endure 3 hours of Craftwerk at work, I now know what to use if I'm ever in a situation where I need to torture someone, Jack Bauer stylee!

    Hi Guys,

    I really love ABBA.
    I went to the exhibition in london and it was fantastic. I found out loads of ABBA facts i didnt know.
    While i was down there i saw an ABBA Tribute Band called ABBA Sensation.
    They were fab.
    I found there website: www.abbasensation.com
    Please check them out even if you arent a fan of ABBA.

    As a classical violinist however, its obviously classics and opera.

    Barbershop all the way, lol. And no, i'm not talking about the movie, i'm talking about barbershop quartet. There's nothing like complex, 4 part, a capella harmony. There are some groups that really ruin the genre, but there are others (like OC Times, Vocal Spectrum http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEDFgI_I-X0&feature=related, Max Q, Crossroads, and The Acoustix) that really bring a good sound to the genre.

    Other than that, I listen to some of the big bands (Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman), and some of the newer big band type stuff (Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Cherry Poppin Daddies), I like stuff from World War II (The Andrews Sisters) and modern takes on them (The Puppini Sisters). I have to be in the mood for smooth jazz and classical, but they have been known to play on my computer. And then I like oldies, oldies rock, contemporary Christian, southern gospel (Gaither Vocal Band, Ernie Hasse and Signature Sounds, The Cathedrals), some pop and hip hop, choral, a LITTLE bit of rap, some metal and rock...and that's about all I can think of for now.

    As long as it isn't screaming and I can actually understand the words, chances of me liking it are good, lol

    something of an Australian theme / rant

    violin is kind on the ears but opera is for :zzz:
    go see the Musical or the Film or buy it for reminiscing purposes in theory it will last as long as you remember the last bar of harmony :rolleyes:
    http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2010/03/16/2847484.htm
    I haven't really been disappointed by any of the posts in choices in preferred listening pleasure, although we in AUS have had the great fortune of witnessing Whitney Houston upon our shores. And the last bars of her current fixtures were less than can be imagined, apparently ear muffs could have helped the listener ;)
    so what to add 13Mb of listening pleasure (add probably as much again as is not on HDD)
    Midnight oil
    Hoodoo Gurus
    Kylie Minogue
    AC/DC
    Crowded House
    Mental as Anything
    Kate Cerberano
    Kasey Chambers
    John Farnham
    INXS
    Vanessa Amorosi
    Spider Bait
    Silverchair
    Screaming Jets
    Powder Finger
    Paul Kelly
    Divinyals
    Charlie Mcmahon & Gondwana
    Cold Chisel
    Jimmy Barnes
    Australian Crawl
    Black Sorrows
    Alex Lloyd
    Bee Gees
    Christine Anu
    Paul Mac
    Rouge Traders
    Something for Kate
    The Whitlams
    Yothu Yindi
    Then there is all the usual suspects; Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Ray Charles, BB King, Muddy Waters, Bob Marley and the Whalers, James Brown, Mary J Blige, Diana Ross & the Supremes, Tracy Chapman, Macy Grey, Michael Jackson...John Lee Hooker
    And back to mainstream with U2, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Evanescence, Bon Jovi, Billy Idol, Moby, Jet, Pink Floyd, Pink, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Scissor Sisters, Eric Clapton, ELO, ZZ Top, Audioslave, David Bowie, Guns n Roses, Alice Cooper with Slash, Phil Collins, Radiohead, The Doors, KD Lang, Jack Johnson.
    And big band sounds too Frank Sinatra, John Coltrane, Neil Diamond
    Did I forget John Lennon and the Beatles

    Ooh, you got some great ones there. Sinatra, Coltrane...and I LOVE Evanescence. You should also check out Nightwish. Kind of the same type of style.

    so go Finnish

    only thing I had previously heard about them was a running - joke on 'the Late Show with David Letterman' must have been around 2005.....didn't quite get the humour at the time as the "pun" centred on the word 'dust'. Now though I understand because when you say of a band / music group, that the lead singer "must have some swallowed dust" it brings a theatrical "pose" of resting a handkerchief over the front-centre microphone. Something Whitney Houston may well consider it her current "cough-cough-cough" shows continue :p

    Leonard Cohen

    Hey, anyone ever tried Cohen? He is the poet of music. He can bring the right emotion to the right tune.

    on Leonard Cohen

    Don't think anyone could bridge the rift in Rihanna to Chris Brown tune that @julien8866 posted
    He has quite a following here Downunder akin to a "Frank Sintra \ Neil Diamond mash-up"

    I'm an alternative-rock, hard-rock and heavy-metal music lover, I also like rock, blues, some jazz, classical, flamenco, and so on. My all-time favourite band is Pink Floyd, I was born and I will die listening to it. Here's a list of my favourite bands:

    -Deep Purple (I've seen them twice!)
    -Led Zeppelin
    -Black Sabbath (and all Ozzy's material)
    -AC/DC
    -Iron Maiden
    -Creedence Clearwater Revival
    -Radiohead
    -Queen
    As I am from Argentina, these are some spanish-languaje bands/artists I love:

    -Everything related to Carlos Alberto "Charly" García (Rock, blues, and many others)
    -Everything related to Luis Alberto Spinetta (Rock, blues, jazz, and many)
    -Everything related to Norberto "Pappo" Napolitano (Heavy metal, hard-rock, blues, jazz, rock, others) -R.I.P-
    -Divididos (rock, hard-rock, folk-rock, blues, etcetera)
    -Almafuerte (Heavy metal, hard rock, argentinian folklore, tango - I strongly recommend this band for those metal lovers and guitar players)
    -Patricio Rey y sus redonditos de ricota (rock, blues)
    -La renga (rock, hard-rock, some blues)

    And lots of other bands I dont mention. I love playin guitar, so it's not a surprise that I'm into music with great guitar players. But, I just like guitar players playing in bands, I don't like solo players, like Satriani, Vai, and so on; except for "Paco de Lucia", he's probably the best guitar player on earth.

    Well, goodbye!
