Dude.  If I couldn't be me, I'd want to be Mike Ness.
O Lord,
Thine Ocean is so great,
And my boat is so small.

Sportos, motorheads, dweebies, wastoids...they think he's a righteous dude.

The utter waste of our $2,000,000,000 a day military-industrial machine was never demonstrated more vividly than on 9/11.

You do what works.

I use to listen to Rush but I stopped listening to Rush. Rush is a big time supporter of whatever the administration does. Rush is gung ho about the war in Iraq. I'd rather listen to O'Reilly than Rush. :D

I use to have Rush albums on 8 track. THey've been around a while.

We've had threads on books and movies, and a bit on music here and there, mostly bodhrans and tin whistles, and now PenquinsScareMe is jonesin' on metal.

So I figured I'd ask what folks here like, music-wise.

Myself? Well, my tastes are pretty eclectic. Easier to list what I don't like, which comes down to some of the more twangy/whiney Country&Western music, rap/hip-hop or whatever it's being called these days, and "easy listening". Of course, within the various genres, there are artists I just can't stand. For example, I like Hank Williams Sr., but Billy Ray Cyrus -- ugh. I'm not all that much into metal -- speed for the sake of speed doesn't impress me. But I do like much of Metallica, and enjoy various tracks by some of the other groups, such as Iron Maiden. Really, I'm just not all that familiar with the various bands who play it.


I have also listened to popular rock but lately I have been a country fan. I like outlaw country. I like listening to Toby Keith and Trace Atkins. I have been a Johnny Cash fan for years however. I like listening to Elvis also. I have a cd by Elixa Gilkynson titled Land of Milk and Honey. There is a song on it titled Hiway 9. That is the way it is spelled. That song is about the war in Iraq. I like that song Whiskey for my men and beer for my horses.

My number 1 all-time favorite, that I listen to most often and love the most, is Roxette.

But I also enjoy....

Belinda Carlisle
Sneaker Pimps
Sarah Mclachlan
Tori Amos
The Beatles
10,000 Maniacs
Luscious Jackson

Since the advent of iTunes and mp3s and whatnot, I find myself less and less liking specific groups, and just collecting individual songs - the songs I like.  The only groups I find to be consistantly excellent are Roxette and Portishead.

Snokrash-- we were writing our posts at the same time.  Hello fellow X fan.  I haven't checked out John Doe's latest project.  I'll have to listen to it!
John Doe's new thing is acoustic (well not completely I guess). :D Has an Americana flavor to it, but still has a punk flavor too.  It's pretty cool.

Lately, when my daughter is in the car, we listen to her The Killers CD. I think they kick ass.

penguinsscareyou, I really "dig" your list - Leonard Cohen, Stray Cats, The Traveling Wilburys I thought these were sort of obscure these days. They're all in my collection (just weren't in the car at the time I posted  :lol: )

Dunno about "favorites",  there's just too darn many different kinds of stuff that I like,  from way too many different eras.  OTOH,  there's also a whole bunch of folks I'm seeing mentioned in here that I've never heard of.  Which makes me wonder...

But then,  there's the state of radio these days,  which isn't conducive to finding out about a wide variety of artists,  anyhow. :-(

I didn't listen to country at all for a long time until a few years ago (this guy I liked listened to it and I thought he'd like me more if I liked it too.. it worked). About that time I switched to exclusively country but recently I have gone back to some of the other stuff I have because I decided that I still like it. imagine that!

You are not be true to yourself if you pretend to like something because you think someone else will like you if you like what they do. I wouldn't have much respect for someone who did that. I suggest being an individual. Don't change who you are just to please others. If you use subterfuge to attract someone by pretending to like what they do then they don't really like you for who you are but rather they like someone else who you are pretending to be.

I'm sorry, HRearden, you must have missed the part where I said I like it. I'm not pretending, I never was pretending to like it. If I didn't like it I wouldn't listen to it. I do not change for others. Sometimes it simple requires someone else to expose you to something you may like, as in my case with country music.

You stated that you thought he's like you more if you like it and that is what gave me that impression.

I like country music.. which is actually quite odd for me considering that country music is often associated with blind patriotism and faith, neither of which I particularly wish to be associated with...

Country has a history of that. Merle Haggard recorded, "Fighting Side of Me", and "Okie from Moskogie" which were pro-military songs during the Vietnam war. One of the lines in Fighting side of me is love it or leave it.

snokrash-- acoustic is cool!  I really enjoy stuff like the MTV unplugged albums, even though MTV is a cheesy, corporate whore.  The whole acoustic rejuvination has been so wonderful, especially if the band incorporates a bass fiddle for the electric bass.  I'm definitely going to check it out.  John Doe was recently in Seattle playing with Lucinda Williams.  I don't know if they;re touring together, or if it was a one night deal.

Since people are being more expansive in their lists, I'll expand as well.  It shouldn't surprise me, but those who have posted have similair faves.  

More favorites:
-Government Mule ( Soulshine always puts a smile on my face)
-Brian Setzer Orchestra
-Cherry Poppin' Daddies
-the "I am Sam" sound track
-Pearl Jam
-the Let it Be Naked cd
-Guns and Roses
-Red Hot Chili Pepper
-Reel Big Fish
-Mighty, Mighty Boss Tones
-New Found Glory
-Big Fat Jake
-Presidents of the United States of America
-Muse  (oh, I love Muse's powerful sound)
-Louis the XVI
-Adam and the Ants
-Generation X
-old Oingo Boingo
-the Who
