I love a lot of odd groups. It depends on my mood. My favorite right now is VNV Nation and especially their CD called 'Empire'. Everything on that CD is awsome. My favorite remix of their work is 'Fragments Splinters mix.' Their songs 'Genesis' and 'Beloved' are also top notch.

Other favorites are Headscan, Golden Palominos (CDs 'Pure' and 'Dead Inside' only), Laurie Anderson and King Crimson (especially their Baroque Rock period).
I love my horse. Really.

Well, I'm more of a rock/soft rock person. I hate poppy stuff from Jessica Simpson, Britany Spears, Justine Timberlake... :roll: jeez, get some depth will you? (This is of couse, my opinion, and it is not meant to offend anyone who doesn't agree)

I love the bands Maroon 5, 3 Doors Down, Switchfoot and Matchbox 20.

Single artists I like Ryan Cabrera, Tyler Hilton (Ok, these guys might not have that much depth, but they're so cute, I just can resist, lol) and there are more that I can't think of at the moment.

My songs of the week are Meant to Live by Switchfoot, Let Me Go by 3 Doors Down (although the radio is starting to overplay that song :x ) I Feel You by 3 Doors Down, Son's Gonna Rise by Citizen Cope....and that's all I can think of at the moment.

Oh and I also like newer country (I know weird mix right? I like Rock/Soft Rock, and country, lol) like the Rascal Flatts.

I am a rock and roll girl myself. The best concert I have ever gone to was this band Dispatch at the Hatch Shell in Boston. It was a free concert and 110,000 people showed up. They played continuously for 3 hours. Everyone was dancing and singing...it was amazing, such a rush. If your into Ben Harper,or Jack Johnson or even the Dave Matthews Band (Their older stuff from like Remeber Two Things up until Crash) I highly recommend them.

Another AMAZING group to hear live is Better Than Ezra. I saw them about 4 years ago at India Point Park in Providence...also for free. They're set was supposed to end at 8 but they refused to leave the stage and kept on playing until the people in charge finally had to shut them down. They were so energetic and everyone was jumping. So cool. It's funy...Maroon 5 opened for them and noone knew who they were...it's funny to think that. we were listening to them play and we were like who the fuck are these guys...They're awesome. My friends and I went out to look for the cd the next day and couldn't find it anywhere. Look at them now...they're everywhere.

I've started listening to 80's rock lately....The Smiths, The Cure, Billy Idol, Duran Duran, The Ramones, and the Bangles.

I don't really do the whole commercial American Idol, Disney spawned pop crap. I'll admit some of them are extremely talented singers but their music really just doesn't speak to me.

I also have this little guilty pleasure of listening to classical music...it makes me feel cultured....lol. I have this thing for any music that include a fiddle or a violin...hence the aforementioned liking of DMB...Boyd knows how to work a fiddle. :D Makes me happy.
And they say
Open up, we're coming inside
You can't run so you may as well hide
We got the place covered from head to toe, head to toe
Open up, we're coming inside
What's it feel like to know you're going to die?
On the other side of the road

Another person who likes The Smiths? Yay! 1980s alternative music is the best. :D

I sometimes listen to classical music too, it's very soothing to me.

lol, thats funny! I knew who they were before everyone else did, and I was like 'wow, what a great band. When will people wake up and see that?' but then people did and it got me mad because they were just jumping on the bandwagon :x I can't stand people like Hilary Duff and Linsay Lohan. It's just so pointless...unless you just want to dance, and then I guess it's ok. I do like Kelly Clarkson, since her music has gotten an edge lately.

Maroon 5 is amazing. My boyfriend can't stand them, but I've loved them for a few years already. I have no idea where they started or what their names are, so I'm not a hardcore fan or anything, but I've loved their music since the first time I heard Harder to Breathe three years ago.

My all time favorite band is HIM! I absolutely love them. They were on tour in the US last fall, so my friends and I went to see them at SOMA (San Diego) and The Avalon (Hollywood). Tha AValon show was amazing, out of this world, spectacular, life changing. :lol:

Definitely! That's one of my favorites. I heard it on the radio once and went straight home to get on the net and look up the lyrics, lol.
