I'm sure this has come up before, so Administrators/Moderators, please feel free to merge this topic. (I didn't feel like drudging through all the previous threads to find out if this was a repeat topic... sorry) I thought about making multiple threads to see who everyones' favorite Musician/Band/Song/Rapper/etc. was, but I think we can probably just combine it all into one Music Thread.
Anyway, here's my musical life:
Favorite Song: - Stranglehold - Ted Nugent (I found out what the song is really about, but I can't help it. That guitar/drum combo... mmm... don't judge me)
Favorite "Rock" Band: - Toss-up between Led Zeppelin/Beatles/Pearl Jam/DMB/Phish (depends on my mood)
Favorite Rapper: - Biggie (My opinion is set in stone, so don't even start...) Ice Cube is a close 2nd ('It was a good day' is the best rap song ever.)
Favorite Hip-Hop Group: - N.W.A. (Purely entertainment. I don't condone most, heck almost all, of their lyrics)
Favorite Country Artist: - Zac Brown Band (Currently. It used to be Hank, Willie, and Waylon... sign of the times, I guess)
Favorite Classical Artist: - Beethoven (Tchaikovsky during the holidays)
Favorite Pop Artist: - Lady Gaga (Again, don't judge me)
Favorite "Techno" Artist: - Ronald Jenkees (Look him up) DJ Shadow is a close 2nd.
Favorite Genre: - I'm a 90's kid, so grunge and gangster rap. (Horrible combo, I know)
Favorite Musical Era: - The 70s. (I wish I had been born 20 years earlier)
Favorite TV Theme Song: - Star Trek (Not a fan of the show, but that song...)
Favorite Movie Theme Song: - Kenny Loggins - "Danger Zone" (If you're judging me by now, I don't blame you)
Favorite Video Game Theme Song: - FF VII (Can't wait for the redux)
Favorite Tunnel-Entrance Song: - VT - "Enter Sandman" by Metallica (God, that gets me GOIN!)
Guilty Pleasure: - Tom Jones (I mean, come on, 'It's not Unusual', 'She's a Lady', 'What's new Pu$$ycat', pure gold, people! If Tom Jones can't get her in the mood, she is a lost cause... )
Current obsession: - Houndmouth - Very good band from New Albany, INDIANA (WOOT WOOT!) Hit after hit with this band, just you wait.
Best concert I've ever been to: - Pearl Jam at Deer Creek in 2010. (Yes. It is, and will always forever be, DEER CREEK. I don't know this Verizon or Klipsch that you speak of. I actually lived on the actual Deer Creek. The creek itself. Me and my best friend used to go "creek-hiking" along Deer Creek.)
Song that makes me cry, no matter what: - Lee Greenwood - "Proud to be an American" (This song shouldn't upset me so much, but when I was in 2nd grade, a classmate lost her dad in Operation Desert Storm, and we all stood outside our classroom and sang this song for her... dang-it, I'm crying right now just thinking about it...)
Anyway, even though I kinda over-shared, I'm sure I left some stuff out. I've been told that I have a very eclectic taste in music. All I can say is that I don't have a musical bone in my body, so every musician is amazing to me...
I know I got a little long-winded there, but I tried to fit my musical life into one post. Feel free to use this thread however you see fit. If you just want to name your favorite song or band, please do. If you just want to let everyone know how much you dislike hip-hop, or techno, or country, that's completely fine.
