What's your favorite band EVER?

Recommended Posts

MadelineWilco

Hey all,

I love all kinds of bands... but my favorite types of music are alternative rock and psychedelic rock. My favorite band ever is Wilco, but I also love the Beatles, Brian Wilson, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Radiohead, etc. What's your favorite band ever? 

Thanks,

Madeline

I do not have a favorite band but Buddha Bar is my favorite compilation albums. So yes, I do fancy Buddha Bar a lot!

Favourite is tough, I love so much music. Metallica, Ludivico Einaudi, Julian Baker, The Head and the Heart, M83, The Band and Weezer are a sampling of some of my biggest musical influences. There are just way too many to list though.

It's a difficult one has it has changed over the years. I probably could not pick a single one but The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Creedance Clearwater Revival, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and The Ramones would have to be in the shortlist. Having said that lots more are coming to mind. Individuals like Carlos Santana and Chuck Berry. Such a variation!

Hi Tracy 

I like all of those.  My favourite Song of all time is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.  There have been others but none like this.

There are just so many, so this question posed in this topic is a truly difficult one.

 

But if pressed to only pick one, my favorite band/artist ever would have to be Jimi Hendrix. He produced music that was so ground breaking then, and so highly influential for my young ears (at the time).

 

Honorable mention to

 

Led Zeppelin

Yes

The Beatles

Rush

Crosby, Stills, and Nash

Emerson, Lake, and Palmer

For me it is a tie between Bob Seger and the Silver bullet band and REO Speedwagon. Have seen Seger 3 times, and REO 8.

Other that make the list not in any order:

Styx

Boston

Pink Floyd

Toby Kieth

AC/DC

Most of the time it is the song more than the artist.

Depends on the day and on hormone levels.Right now I am mid way through my injection cycle and Social Distortion its number one on thew playlist.But my tastes are pretty wide ranging. Right after an injection it is The Bangles, Adele, Maria McKee and she leads into Lone Justice from there to Green Day. From Social Distortion the journey heads into an almost fatal dose of Zeppelin, Cream and Sabbath. As the day of injection gets closer Kasey Chambers, Ronstadt and Tanya Donnelly are on the playlist.

My favorite band of all time is Journey. There are other bands that I favor, but I love every song Journey has produced.

I am finding it very interesting how many of us like the same music.  What's up with that?  (incidentally, that's a ZZ Top song)

 

My fav of all time is probably Pink Floyd.  My thinking and feelings have always been heavily influenced by them.  I love everything about their music and lyrics.  Hard to find a bad song.

 

Honorable mention would go to Black Sabbath, again because they influenced me greatly.

 

Obviously, those two represent quite a dichotomy musically, which is a valid representation of me.  Lyrically, they're not all that different.  These two account for a disproportionate amount of my listening time throughout my years.  These are the bands I put on headphones for.

 

I haven't seen White/Rob Zombie mentioned on either of these music threads.  They/he are one of my gotos when I'm in the mood for razor-edged head banging.  I like every song on Hellbilly Deluxe.

Thanks Tori

You just bought a memory back.  The first time I ever heard a cd played was at a  friends place in Melbourne.  The cd was Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon.  It was heavenly.

At that time (age 15 I think??) I already owned Animals (still my personal fav) but had not heard Dark Side.  The first time I heard it was at a friend's and we were tripping.  Before I left his house, I had traded him out of it!  I still have it.  It's a UK Quadraphonic vinyl.  Of course, I've never found a quad system to play it on.

Being I am left handed I play a left handed Hofner violin style bass and was bitten by their music bug in February 1964 and I have been a songwriter and musician ever since - I would like you to guess who my favorite band and influences.....

Although The Eagles, Pink Floyd (Dark Side of the Moon), Led Zeppelin, Yes (before they got carried away getting too complicated) and my vocal heroes CSN - when I wrote, I can do up to 8 vocal harmonies and they end up usually sounding like CSN meets James Taylor.

I have loved the band 10 Years since i was... 15? that was about 9 years ago so I guess I've loved them for a LONG time, lol! I'm listening to all my music on shuffle and the first song I've ever heard by them came on: Wasteland. What a coincidence! They're labeled as Alt-Metal? Don't know what that means. I saw them once in January 2018 I believe. It was my first ever concert and it was EPIC!! I love them to bits! An up and coming contender to them though, is Artificial Language which I've found in the last year? They ROCK! They're labeled as Prog-Metal I believe.

Growing up...For years, I listened to anything and everything Led Zeppelin. I practically lived for Led Zeppelin. Then in the early 80’s moved into alt rock, then (and still) jazz, then by the 90’s, I added Trance, Electronica, and New Age to my favs. Today,  if I had to narrow it down to a single band I enjoy most, I’d have to say almost ANYTHING from the band Enigma and their related Gregorian projects.

The Doors! I was 15 in '67 and doing the whole garage band thing and when I first heard them on AM radio. I collected their albums and sat at my Farfisa single keyboard at home playing along. I dressed like Morrison and, being a budding poet myself, I scribbled raunchy doggerel verse. And. . .AND! I have always been pretty decent when it comes to imitating voices and I did His very well according to friends. The song: The End was my then ultimate favorite song of all time.

But times do change. . .sigh!

Wow, so many choices, but if I had to put one band at the top of my list is has to be Pink Floyd.  Their progressive style has always moved me and has made progressive rock my favorite genre.  

 

A shout out to you though cybreraphael for mentioning 10 Years;  I really like them a lot.  They are one of my favorite modern bands, and I think it is because of their progressive underpinnings.

     i won't forget how the Beatles changed the whole music scene.  I loved them and as their music changed i grew to respect them more and more.  At bit later i listened to the Stones and other groups.  I vividly remember moments of a Janice Joplin concert at the Fillmore East.  A bit later i was at a free Grateful Dead concert in a park in Atlanta.  The band came out and played after a regular concert. The folks in the sound truck threw marshmellows to folks as they came in.  Eating several of those made the night and the music merge.

Ahh the 60's

 

Hugs,

That song is like soooo deep. Morrison once would be arrested on stage, that just added to his mystique :)

I have to share something I hope you enjoy. I run something in our community called a Chautauqua - it is living history where the performer dresses as a historical person like Amelia Earhart, George Washington, Robin Williams, Calamity Jane, Lucille Ball, and on and on and come out and talk to the audience as that person and then field questions. I have done Jim Morrison and I had the band there as well and I did an unplugged evening as Tom Petty and then did Petty as a benefit for the homeless. 

Any way ... back to the story... when I did Jim Morrison, my friend asked this 84 year old regular attendee if he even knew who Jim Morrison was and he said no, but he always learns something at the Chautauqua's when he comes. I also have to share that my step-daughter still has a hard time thinking of me (I was 60 at the time) running around stage in tight leather pants. I attached photos of me as Jim Morrison, Tom Petty and Paul McCartney LOL

It is rather hard to describe the Fillmore.  It was wonderful to be in a large auditorium filled with long haired folks.  At that time long hair created a kind of instant bond and trust. The summer of love had just passed and while society wondered what was going on, it seemed there was a kind of beautiful peaceful revolution going on.  My girlfriend and i sat down and enjoyed the many joints that freely passed seemingly everywhere.  BB King had all of us up and dancing almost as soon as he came out.  Some other unknown group, like the Doors came next.  They were wonderful.  I had gone to see Janis and she did not disappoint.  Her singing gripped and tore at ones senses and soul.  So much was expressed.  BBKing came out and played with her.  It was certainly a beautiful night worth remembering.  Thank you for asking about that time.  The music and life of the late sixties changed me forever.

 

Hugs,

 

Charlize

WOW...double WOW - what amazing line up ... I wanted to go to Woodstock but I was like a junior in high school and I could not find someone to go to New York with me - so I was BUMMED - I am going to be presenting a Woodstock presentation at one of my Chautauqua's in town - I have a slide presentation of how it got going, the principals, the struggles, interesting facts, the performers then and now (if still alive) and several couples (like the couple on the cover of the triple album set) then and now. And I assembled a band to do a mini-Woodstock set so people can enjoy or remember and re-enjoy the music.

      How many times have I been in my knees, begging God to fix me and everything??  Begging.   Five hundred?   How many times have I cursed God, thrown vile swear words at Jesus, God, whoever for not fixing me and the world?,( in my timing and in ways that I could see it) Fifty?   How many times have I asked the name of Jesus, God, and angels to save me and keep my eternal soul? Five?   I love angels and they love me! Sometimes they show this love by interfering.   Do I believe? I say yes, but I must try to do so at times.   Praise the Lord for making me a girl that is becoming a woman!!

      @Susan R pain levels are very stable. I have been getting these ‘jolts’ Of my nerves waking back up, those have been interesting.  Earlier this afternoon I was experiencing a pretty satisfying tingle and that actually turned out to be the packing trying to come out. It has been the weirdest pain yet .   I can’t wait to experience the new exciting sensations to learn how my body is recovering. I do know that I’ve been luck with almost minimal swelling and only bruising noted to my ‘taint’ area. Currently, just laying in the hotel bed catching up on 90 Day Fiancé with my best friend. Debating a nice Benadryl and Tylenol cocktail later for sleep!  Any questions you can think of, I don’t mind trying to answer based off of my personal experiences! Kylie
    • Susan R
      Good to hear Kylie. Have the pain levels stabilized? Are there any instances where you think, Oh what was that?   I appreciate these updates very much.   My Best, Susan R🌷
    • DeeDee
      I love this thread, but found it harder to answer than I thought Shay. Possibly because over the years my ex made me choose between my passions and her, and I always chose her. 😨   My biggest passion first and foremost is for my kids and family. 💖 My children are amazing and I love them to bits. I also have 4 sisters fairly close in age and regularly think we are unknowingly starring in some unscripted black comedy due to the almost constant drama in our lives.   Outside of that my position as a Christian minister and the privilege that my faith enables me to help others through some of the best and worst times of their lives.(This is very personal to me, but happy to chat privately if folks are curious about it)   D&D - getting together in person or online and being part of a creative story where almost anything can and will happen. So much fun!   Ultimate frisbee - though I haven't played in over a decade I still deeply love the sport and throwing a disc around with my friends. I never go anywhere without a disc in the car, just in case...   Swimming - Whether it's in the sea, a river, or a loch I cannot wait to get wet once I discover somewhere with open water. It may be cold when you dive in, but once you're acclimatised nothing beats it for me and I always feel amazing afterwards.   At the bottom I would actually place my most common hobbies: gaming, reading and binge watching films, TV and YT Series - I do them for escape and some introverted social connection but am not really passionate about them specifically but I certainly wouldn't want my life without them.    
    •  Kylie
      Thanks all! Been a pretty decent day. Packing decided it wants to start coming out. So a little extra reinforcement and all is well. I think my surgical team gets a kick out of my concerns, all have been benign.    Going to enjoy a good meal tonight and sleep up for tomorrow. Pretty exhausted today!    ❤️

      @Tori M did you see the guy and his wife on CBS Sunday Morning who photographs and paints birds. You are probably familiar with him. I appreciate your passion. And love the photo you posted.
    • Tori M
      I think some of you already know my fascination with nature, but my main passion now is birds.  Not just feeding or watching them, but "chasing" them and, most interesting, learning as much as I can about their lives.  This started in 2014 and at one point I was spending almost every waking moment watching, reading or chasing them.  Chasing means traveling miles and hours to catch sight of a rarity or exploring environs different than our own neighborhood to find different species.  Lately, I am less obsessed and haven't traveled as much but it's not unusual for me to load up the car with binoculars, scopes and cameras and spend the whole day driving around looking for great sightings. In the east, birding is largely a summer sport but to my total surprise, here on the west coast it's a year-round venture.  Yes, the birds fly south, but there's a whole different batch that summer in Canada and the Arctic that also fly south.... to here!  So, in the summertime, birding is about migrating songbirds, but in the winter there are millions of waterfowl and sparrows here.  It's a funtastic hobby and I'm always [too] eager to answer questions and educate, lol.  I'm not an expert but I've crammed a lot of learning into a few short years.   Sandhill crane w/cygnet (not my photo) Sandhill cranes have been around for at least 2.5 million years

      If my Chautauqua Series is able to?start up again after Clovis there is a girl who plans to do a program on the American home appliances from the 1950s 1960s and 1970s. For those not familiar?with Chautauquas they are first person living history where the presenter is usually a well known person and you learn so much more about that person. This girl would be a generic housewife. We have had usually 2 a month every month for 14 years until covid came. We do it as a donation basis and have musicians open with period music. We have a wide range of people from George Washington to robin Williams Tecumseh to sacagawea. Jesse James to rosemary Clooney carry nation to general Dwight eisenhower Beethoven to solar schlindler Laura singles wilder to Walt Whitman. Sorry I miss these shows they are fun and enjoyable.

      I find that an unusual but very intriguing hobby!  The first time I heard of it was a boy guesting on a TV talk show (was it Ellen?  Leno??).  They're interesting machines that transformed the American home and housework.  I once sold Rainbows and got to see one of the very early models.... all steel and weighed a TON.  No more nerdy than my fascination with bridges, lol❣️

      Not true, the Trump family has been doing pretty well propping up failing properties with government handouts.   There were also some choice short-term gains for billionaires and the stockholders of huge corporations (i.e. campaign contributors).   The rest of us are kind of boned though.   Hugs!
