Seriously, every topic in this forum is about computers. Geez, lets talk about something interesting. :D

Umm, so what kind of music does everyone listen to? Got any recommendations? Or maybe post some links and we'll all check them out!

My recommendations for you all:
- The Mountain Goats - the Sunset Tree (dance music is my favorite song on the record)
http://www.asjohnson... a Punk Rocker [Original%20ABC%20Single%20Version].wma
The Ramones - Sheena is a Punk Rocker
- Def Leppard - Pour Some Sugar on Me
- Motion City Soundtrack - The Future Freaks Me Out
- 30 Seconds to Mars - The Kill

Yea, I'm bored. Soo...what kind of music do you like?

Woo! A topic up my alley!

I like a bunch of different music, but I'm a metal head mostly. I listen to Metallica, Pantera, Godsmack, Alice In Chains, Disturbed, Ozzy, Mudvayne, Tool and a bunch of others. I also like 80's metal a lot too: Motley Cure, Poison, Def Leppard...

I have about 58 GIGS! of music on my home computer. I'm always listen to music!

Right now I'm listening to Shinedown - Save me, Alice In Chains - Would? and Them Bones, Godsmack - Greed and Bad Relligion, Mudvayne - Not Falling, Trapt - Stand Up. I have band practice later so I have to learn them  ;D

I like something with a good beat... techno being my favorite.  I like hip/hop or rap or whatever you want to call it.  Not so much a fan of R&B.

Having said that, I listen to everything from country to instramental.   About the only thing I can't really stand is gospel and that "twangy" country stuff.  Bleh.

www.tranceaddict.com is an excellent site for some good techno.

i lean more towards techno when working, but i like all sorts of music.  as with ober, i'm not a huge fan of gospel or the twangy country.  more rock-ish country i can deal with.

if anyone wants good track/album reccommendations for any of these guys (if you want to try them out), i'm more than happy to offer them.

Wow, some metal fans! I LOVE metallica myself, too. Alice in Chains is classic...but inreference to steelmanronald's post, the Casualties make me want to kill myself. They sound terrible, IMO. XP

I love Queen. My dad's a huge pink floyd fan, but their songs put me to sleep (as in--they're boring).

I just looked them up, and they're okay. They sound "emo" to me. xP

You should try 30 Seconds to Mars' S/T album. The lead singer is a Pink Floyd fan. Try "Echelon" and "Buddha for Mary." It's deep, I tell you. Deep.

Yes, but they specifically don't use his fame to promote their band. They prefer to allow the music to speak for itself, which is something I really do admire.

Jared is both a talented actor and musician, but I definately prefer his music (all his movies made so far have been rated R, therefore the only acting I've got to go on is his role in "My So-Called Life").
