    Music

    I know there are other threades about music, yadda yadda. This is about your favorite. I like a lot of music, from DMX to Charlie Daniels to Silversun Pickups (photo attached, ha) to Dead Mouse to Led Zeppelin. But one of my favorites is the Smashing Pumpkins. What is your favorite?

    weird. I had't been interested in Smashing Pumpkins in years, but about 3 or 4 weeks ago, I somehow listened to the Siamese Dream Album, and was taken back at how good it is. I mean, I listened to it a bunch when it came out, but listening to it now years later, it's really solid.

    I listen to a lot of random ****e. The other day the movie Sixteen Candles came on, which prompted me to listen to "Ring Me Up" by the Divinyles in it's entirety a few times.

    My 4 year old daughter makes me put on old Metallica, AC/DC and Incubus (Science) when I take her to school. She also likes Johnny Cash. Not sure where her tastes are coming from but I kind of like it.

    I made a mountain bike track that spans Tool, Nas, Pantera, The Cult and U2, none of which really go together, but I like it all.

    I used to love Led Zeppelin, but I burned out of them a bit. I had a sweet Led Zeppelin Patch on my Jean Jacket Freshman Year in High school though. Went great with my Mullet.

    I listen to everything, all day long.
    Somehow Tangerine is always my all time, most listened to song
    I can't count how many iTunes installs I've had, let alone other media players; but Tangerine is usually played in the hundreds, if not 1000s on each one
    It's probably my favorite song to listen to before I surf

    It reminds me that every moment is precious and fleeting
    And to enjoy them

    I used to love Led Zeppelin in elementary school, when I first started taking a serious interest in music. Same with Rush and Boston.

    I started listening to punk and hardcore when I was about 13 or so. I still listen to a lot of that. The Clash has been one of my favorite bands since then and still is to this day. I love a lot of the LA stuff too, like Bad Religion, Agent Orange, Black Flag. The DC stuff like Minor Threat. I love New York hardcore too. Youth Of Today, Gorilla Biscuits, Cro Mags. Really into Suicidal Tendencies and SOD.

    I've listened to that stuff for over 30 years now and I still do to this day.

    I really like early Smashing Pumpkins. Gish and Siamese Dream are awesome, as is most of Mellon Collie. Everything after that is awful IMO and not all that listenable to me.

    I toss in some Rage Against the Machine every once I a while, too.

    EatS, yeah, some of their newer stuff isn't as good as their older stuff, I agree. I still like some punk, I was just sitting at work jamming out to some Black Flag and Suicidal the other day.

    I'm a pretty big fan of Suicidal, up until the early 90's. That's when they lost me and all but Mike Muir were replacements.

    I like all Black Flag, even in their twilight era. Most don't agree with me on that. A lot of my friends end it after My War and some after Damaged.

    I have allot of diffrent tastes. I could go on and on naming bands but ill keep this short to just a few genres.

    Newer indie music. Portugal the man is my favorite. Seen them a bunch live. There starting to get big but they have been around for years. Quite a few albums, all a diffrent subs but all dann good. Minus the bear and modest mouse are some other favs.

    Rap- I'm an old school NY rap guy. Big L, Big pun, onyx, wu-tang.

    Rock- incubus, tool, and deftones. Love those three bands so much. Lots of talent

    Older rock- zepplin is all time. Pink Floyd (echos live in pompeii. YouTube it. So damn tight). The allman brothers.

    Death metal/hardcore - this is what i grew up on. Winds of plague. Pantera. Hatebreed. All shall perish. Sworn enemy. A ton more but those are the favs.

    Acoustic - citizen cope. Neil young. Andrew bird

    Like i said i can go on and on. Music is big in my family and me my pops and my sister are constantly finding new music and sharing it with each other. But those are some of my favs in some diffrent genres.

    And yes you are correct--that Pompeii Echos recording from Pink Floyd is awesome. So is the original recording. The louder the better..........ooops....there go the windows!!!
