10 Bands that you love most.

  • All apologise if this topic has been done before, but if it hasn't here it is: name 10 bands that have changed your life, help you threw your day, never get tired of listening to, etc, etc. Oh, and put links to your favorite song from the band. I love listening to new bands, so it'll be good to get into stuff you guys like.

  • 10. Death From Above 1979: Love these guys. They broke up for abit, but now they're back! :D Electro/punk/rock style band. They only ever released one album and a remix thing. But man, the album is just amazing.


    9. Propagandhi: Heavy punk band, that are massive on the political front. Topic of discussion is normally about animals getting slaughtered in all the wrong unethical ways. A band that got heavy with every album.

    (Check out the face melting solo on this one.) *If you get offended but animal cruelty don't look at this video, it's quite horrible.*

    8. Nirvana: No introduction needed, we all know who they are. Overrated, yes, but there is no denying they got the praise for a good reason. My favorite album is In Utero.


    7. Deftones: Apparently Nu-metal, in my eyes something much more. They have a very unique sound that no one has hit. I saw these guys live last year, man, what an atmosphere they create. White Pony was their breaking album that shot them to the number one spot. The album also had guest singer Maynard (Tool/A Perfect Circle frontman) to sing on the song "passenger".


    6. Rammstein: Heavy metal german band, Rammstein -in my eye's- haven't made a bad album. 6 albums into their career and every album is just as immense as the last. Not without humour, though, from their serious, disturbing look and lyrics, as their last album had the highly controversial music video (and song) -Pussy. All in good taste, though. :)

    (this is the censored version -of course- look on a porn site of something for the real thing! haha)

    5. Frank Zappa: This guy was unique on every level. An amazing musician, who tried everything to make a new sound and avoid cliches. His discography is intimidating to say the least, with a career that lasted the 60's, 70's 80's and early 90's before dying of throat cancer. My favorite period from him was his 70's work. He then moved onto do lyrics with humour, with songs like "Dancing fool" and "Don't eat the yellow snow".


    4. Mars Volta: Progressive, psychedelia with a bang. Two members of former hard rock band "At the Drive-In", these guys moved on to a higher purpose. Admittedly, I'm not so fond of the last album they did, as it sounded abit too normal for them, but they have an amazing discography.

    (Off their second album -Frances the Mute.)

    3. Nick Cave: A rock band with an edge. Really, really love these guys, his voice is so unique. My favorite -and probably the most bleak album I've ever listened to- is Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds -Murder ballads. That album in particular had a handfull of guest stars including Kylie Minogue.


    2. Tool: A Prock/Metal band. I probably don't need to tell you who they are, but if you don't know, there isn't a band I can name that sound anything like these guys; Intelligent lyrics, uncharted musicanship, of times, experimental -I could go on for hours. lol

    (A song from their 3 album -Lateralus- known as there claim to fame.)

    1. Dir En Grey: A Japanese band that formed in 1999. They have released 7 albums and two EPs since their career kicked off. Every album has progressed and moved onto a different style of rock music. Their later albums become alot heavier, so if you like a lighter form of rock check out their first 2 albums. Pure J-Rock. lol

    (this is their latest single. Really good. Hope the new album is as consistant as the singles have been.)

  • My ten favorites are (not in a special order):
    - Nightwish: Over the Hills and Far Away (the sound quality isn't the best possible)
    - Within Temptation: Faster, an amazing song!
    - Paramore: Decode, might be familiar with the song, if you've watched the movie Twilight or listened to its soundtrack.
    - Shania Twain: Man! I Feel Like A Woman, makes me smile every time I hear it. :-)
    - Celine Dion: The Power Of Love :love:
    - Dire Straits: Walk of Life, somehow this song cheers me up, must be the rhythm.
    - The Beatles: Help!, the lyrics tell it all. ;-)
    - Toto: Rosanna
    - Infernal: A To the B
    - Bon Jovi: Wanted Dead Or Alive

  • snake : you listed some great bands here. Rammstein would also be in my list, if both "Raise, Reise" and "Liebe ist für alle da" didn't happen.
    @Poet: I like that you mentioned songs from all decades :thumbs:

    I think it's hard to chose just 10, but I'll try to list the most exceptional.

    In no special order (except for the first and last ^^):

    Nightwish - Might be my top-favourite, as I'm listening to it at least once a day. Atm my favourite track is "10th man down, but it changes many times a week ^^"
    10th man down with footage of Lotr

    Muse - Also a fantastic band and of of the best live-experiences I ever had. They really disappointed me with their new tracks though -.-
    Citizen Erased - live

    Dark Fortress - A german black-metal band that can be compared to Satyricon f.e.
    Ylem - official video

    Satyricon - Also one of my all-time-favourites. I saw them 3 times already and each time was unique :thumbs:
    K.I.N.G - official video

    L'âme Immortelle - I once loved this band and everything they did. A great Austrian gothic-band.
    5 Jahre (means: 5 years)

    Lady Gaga - I can't believe it myself, that I'm typing this, but I was listening to some of her music a lot. She's an amazing live-performer and pianist and I think what she does can really be called "art". (of course I don't like everything she does but some songs just blow me away (f.e. "Dance in the Dark" (from The Fame Monster) or "Bloody Mary" from her new recording)
    @ the Brit Awards

    Hans Zimmer - Not a real band or singer, but I also listen to soundtracks, and he's among my favourite composers. His "Inception" score gives me the creeps (in a good way)
    Inception - Time

    Dornenreich (new) - Dornenreich is a former black-metal band from Austria. They completely changed their style though and created something unique imo - just listen to this song to see what I mean:

    The Dresden Dolls - They say themselves that their music is "Brechtian Punk Cabaret". I especially like "Girl Anachronism" but they have loads of other great song.
    Girl Anachronism live @ the Roundhouse

    I can't decide who will be the 10th that is mentioned so pick one of those yourself:
    Korpiklaani (Humppa-Metal), The Devil's Blood (Hard Rock), Finntroll, Eluveitie (both Folk-Metal), The Kovenant (Industrial), System of a Down (Alternative)

  • @Poet: I like that you mentioned songs from all decades :thumbs:

    Wow, I didn't realize that before you mentioned it. :D

    I can't decide who will be the 10th that is mentioned so pick one of those yourself:
    Korpiklaani (Humppa-Metal), The Devil's Blood (Hard Rock), Finntroll, Eluveitie (both Folk-Metal), The Kovenant (Industrial), System of a Down (Alternative)

    If I got to choose, I'd go with either Korpiklaani or Finntroll. ;-)

    I can't believe I forgot Turisas from my list! :shock: But that'd make it eleven... [hehe] I like their cover version of 70's disco song Rasputin from Boney M. To Holmgard and Beyond is also a nice song from Turisas.
