Ahh Tool very good choice. I would have to say my fav of all time is Led Zepplin, as for modern music I really like System of a Down.

MrP, I was going to post something like this in off topic but you go and make a Forum. Thank you sir.

What's been playing in Winamp this week.
Tool
A Perfect Circle (Maynard's other band)
Tori Amos
Tuvan Throat Singing (really out there)
Lagwagon
NoFx
Dinosaur Jr.
System of a Down
And that's just scratching the surface.

I listen to allmost anything that can be classified as music. Sorry if I offend but I don't think Britney, N'stink ... most of the contrived Pop poop is NOT music. But opinions are like ###holes, everyone's got one so please listen to whatever makes you happy. :xyippee:

My favourite band has alwasy been Nirvana. They have such a raw energy and I think Nevermind is one of the greatest albums ever made. I'll do some album reviews later on. Other bands I like... Feeder, Weezer, Korn, Staind, Green Day, Soundgarden. Pretty much everything punk and grunge at the moment. The stuff Im listening to most is old skool Beatles and Joni Mitchel. Sgt. Pepper is such an amazing album!

Honestly as much as I like Nirvana I have to say their best Album was unplugged or mayybe Bleach. On the topic of Korn that new single is great I cannot wait for their new album in June. Hopefully I will get to see them in concert again, but I might not have the money since Ozzfest is gonna be really good this year.

Any of you guys in England going to Ozzfest this year??

Nice topic! I don't really have a fav band...cus i like too many!

Currently: I have Metallica's "and justice for all" in my rental car.

Also I have Pink Floyd's new album (the best or something like that?) in my CD player.

I like all kinds...

See avatar and sig. Also, I posted them in the "recommended" forum before I found this forum. Man, not many people have heard Eels besides their "commercial" hits. Let me tell you, that is the very least of their accomplishments. Most underrated band ever. E is the master of musical themes, hands down. If you listen to their songs, you will say, "Hey wait, I've heard that before..." but, you won't be able to place your finger on exactly where you've heard it. This is because of E's boundless knowledge of music and ability to use different kinds in the Eels' songs. I mean, look at Souljacker. They use weird 70's "fuzz rock" a lot, but "Woman Driving, Man Sleeping" definitely has a "reggae" feel to it. And, this album reminds me a lot of Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" album. (Even has a song about a boxer and sending correspondence.) This is the very best of music, and too under-used/mis-used imho. Usually, artists just copy/rip each other off. Not Eels. They truly have a great "musical sense" and create songs/albums that have "intertextuality" with music from the present/past.

Please oh please, make my day and check them out at: http://www.eelstheband.com/ You can view videos/promos/live performances/audio clips to hear just a few of their masterpieces.

(Oh, and if you listen to Souljacker or any clips, please do not turn the volume up. Your speakers will explode and your neighbors will kill you. :D )

I gotta get some studying done, but maybe I'll post some lyrics later...

Eels are about more than just music. They are about making the world more than a "rat-race," and bringing back the humanity to the world...

25th March 2002, 06:29 AM
Woohoo! Just checked winamp.com, and their featured artist is... Yup, you guessed it, Eels! Go here to download "Rotten World Blues" - http://www.winamp.com/music/events/march/index.jhtml

btw - besides the official site, 3speed is probably one of the best Eels fansites: http://3speed.beautifulfreak.org/

I'll agree with this!!! It is awesome mood music....very calming. I play it at work a lot when I'm having a stressful day...I can't vouch for the "awesome music to make love to" point tho :p

Just had to add my 2 cents here.

I also like Enya. Get a really good sound system and turn her up a bit. Her music flows through you.

Also for all you head banger types, Enya has some of the most awesome bass I have ever heard.

Played through my Klipsch promedia 4.1 system it shakes the house.

And just so everyone knows. I grew up in the Hair Band age. Some of my other favs are:

Boston
Styx
Night Ranger
Rush
Def Lepard

My tastes are very eclectic. No real rhyme or reason to what I like; I just like it. Here's a (very short) list of my faves.

Creed
Toad the Wet Sprocket
Pearl Jam
Brad Paisley (told you my tastes were all over the place)
really old Def Leppard (High'N Dry and Pyromania; not much after that)
Nickelback
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
old Elton John
Billy Joel
Lots of other stuff that is too embarrasing to mention here (and I'm pretty shameless!)
but my number one all-time hands-down favorite is the greatest rock band in history...of course you already know who I mean...
THE BEATLES :band:

I have a great respect for the Beatles..their achievements and their influence on all the music that followed. I also like more than a few tracks..but for some reason I cannot really bring myself to listen to them!! The Stones, yes..and loads of other 60s stuff..but I shy away from the Beatles..perhaps I do need help :D
