View Full Version : What do you listen to?

I wonder what you fellow Bobcats fans like to listen.
I generally listen to alternative pop-rock and death metal genres. Rap and electronic-trance kinds are really far to me.
My favorites are The Cranberries (Irish alternative rock band), Dido (English pop singer), Opeth and Dark Tranquillity (Swedish death metal bands) I also like Michelle Branch so much.

I'm amped about the new Metallica album dropping in a few weeks
I've been listening to classic rock a lot lately, particularly The Who. Tommy is sheer genius. Other artists that are particular favorites are CCR and Neil Young.
Metal bands are early Metallica, Megadeth, and Slayer (South of Heaven is probably my fave). Modern metal, I have a real guilty pleasure....Dragonforce. I know, I know, but I like it. For viking metal, I've heard some Mors Principium Est and think they're pretty pimp.
I'll even throw a little Eminimem, NWA, or PE on for some hip hop now and then. Mix things up a little.
I just don't feel top 40 or country. I usually want to have a bit of a message or a tinge of anger in my music. While classic rock isn't hard, a lot of it was bitter at the establishment at the time or, at the least, had a meaning.

Today at work (on my headphones) I listened to The Roots, Stevie Wonder and some old Prince (Controversy & 1999) and to finish my day off I listened to some old Boogie Down Productions (By All Means Necessary)
Listening to music at work calms me and keeps me from strangling my coworkers:biggrin:

Most excellent thread, tambo. Generally, I'm just into rock of the heavier variety, though I like progressive, and some emo (though I hate those terms) and I dabble in most other things except contemporary rap/pop/R&B/country. And none of that scary death metal stuff: I like my music to be pleasing and/or challening, and fun at times; incoherent cacophony that sounds like Amaymon shouting at the damned in some dank pit of hell doesn't do it for me, no offense. A shout-out to Dunk for his mention of The Who, CCR, and Neil Young, none of which can be listened to enough!
Not possible to list all, but some faves that are recommended: Ben Folds, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots/Velvet Revolver, Smashing Pumpkins, Springsteen, Jeremy Enigk, (the Great Master) Woody Guthrie, The Verve, Coldplay, Sunny Day Real Estate, Built to Spill, Fleet Foxes, Fiona Apple, Dave Matthews/Tim Reynolds, Beatles, J.S. Bach, Hildegard of Bingen, Queen, Beck, Delfonics, Brothers Johnson, Blue Magic, Paul Simon....okay, I quit. There are others, but that's enough for now.

Van Halen is my favorite band ever. Don't care the singer.
Coheed and Cambria is my second favorite.
I like everything but Country.

Here's some glorious 70's R&B by the late, great Minnie Riperton. To you yunggins out there, this is the music that you need to play when you're alone with a lady in college and beyond. Thanks to Minnie, Al Green, the Delfonics among others, I got girls way out of my league!
This is just a kickass, sexyashell number here...Inside My Love....:cool:

I like Riperton and Green but if I ever have such a chance, the song I'll play is already defined :)

Underground hip hip = Saigon (he retired sadly), Little Brother(Best rappers from North Carolina by far), Papoose, Dead Prez, RhymeFest and Immortal Technique.
mainstream rappers old and new = Tupac, Nas, Biggie, Jay-Z, Rakim, Scarface, Kanye West, Black Star (Talib Kweli and Mos Def ) KRS-One, Lupe Fiasco, The Lox, and Common.
My favorite song is One Mic by Nas:

One of my all-time fav bands, SP, and damn did this one hit me today outta nowhere. Gorgeous, if I do say so myself. Say what you will, Billy Corgan is a musical mastermind.
****The video is lame as hell; it's a homemade thing, and is in no way affililiated with the Pumpkins. Would've linked to a live show, but the audio recording doesn't do the song justice like the album cut. And without further ado, Galapagos, gents (maybe some random lady as well)...and, yes, it's okay to tear up a little;)
