Re: Top 20 - Bands

Absolute favourite is Soundgarden.

Pretty close behind....

The White Stripes
Rage Against The Machine

And the rest...

Pink Floyd
Midnight Oil
Radiohead
Blur
Audioslave
Led Zeppelin
Pearl Jam
Pulp
The Doors
Oasis
Cold Chisel

Small list it seems, but bands just kinda make me think rock outfits I guess, not individual artists or other genre acts. Whatever, it doesn't really matter because my Top 3 is up there and that's all that counts to me these days!

Re: Top 20 - Bands

I don't know if I can get a top 20, but what I do like:

The Offspring - Been listening to thier new album a lot lately. Very good comeback.
Linkin Park
Green Day
Credence Clearwater Revival
The Beatles
Rolling Stones
Metallica
Lostprophets
Foo Fighters
The Who
Queen
Guns N' Roses
Seether
Godsmack
System of a Down (And I've heard a song from the spin off group Scars on Broadway which I liked)

I don't know, I'm really getting into the hard rock alternative stuff that you'd here on Octane or The Sqizz if you have Sirius or XM (respectively). Ranking current bands is tough since it depends on the music. For example, I've heard some of Saliva's stuff as well as stuff from Trapt, but I don't know the longevity of those bands nor have I heard more stuff from them. I also listen to country but in terms of bands, there aren't that many. Mostly of them are solo artists.

I'm looking to fill my Itunes library with more hard rock (Too much pop and country and indie artists that I'm starting not to like such as a Seattle Group called Long Winters) stuff so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm listening.

The Doors.

(Really, I mostly listen to film scores and jazz artists... I have a White Stripes album, and a few other CDs, but none that I could immediately list as my "favorite").

Re: Top 20 - Bands

Only twenty eh? Well I'll have a go......

1. Gary Numan
2. Jean Michel Jarre
3. Sparks
4. Def Leppard
5. Queen

Then in no particular order:

T'Pau
Abba
New Order
The Human League
Rush
Depeche Mode
Roxette
Clannad
The Stranglers
XTC
Blondie
Bon Jovi
O.M.D

Quite a few missed the cut, but when you've got 830+ albums to go at, there had to be the odd absentee.....

The Tragically Hip (seriously look these guys up if you like rock\classic rock and haven't heard of 'em)
One of the best pieces of advice I've taken away from this board, in 7 years on here. Thanks again, Canadave! tomalak301, based on the rest of your list, I'd encourage you to take the man's advice. I know I certainly am glad I did. I started listening to them about what? 5 or 6 months ago, Dave? And with the possible exception of the time about 6 1/2 years ago when someone told me told me to give Babylon 5 a try, this is the most valued piece of advice I've ever received on this board.

Still mystifies me why these guys are so huge in Canada but they've never made it down here. IMO, they are all kinds of awesome.



My list:

Top 5:

1. Bruce Springsteen
2. Pearl Jam
3. Bon Jovi
4. The Tragically Hip
5. U2

Others include (in no particular order): Queen, Journey, Fuel, REM, Alanis Morissette, The Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, The Beatles, The Eagles, Janis Joplin, Green Day, Nirvana, The Police, The Counting Crows, Prince, The Sam Roberts Band, Soundgarden, 3 Doors Down.

And even though they're just a baby band at this point, I do like Daughtry.

I'm glad I'm not the only one on this board who knows who these groups are. When I was introduced to them and come on here to talk about it, I thought I was. Metric is alright (Emily Haines has a great voice though) and I do know of one of Broken Social Scene's members, Jason Colett who has soothing music but has gotten a bit boring.

There is no doubt, Emily Haines carries the whole band. Metric always seems a little off to me (not performance-wise), sometimes cheesy, but I like their style.

That sounds about right. And you're welcome, once again! I'm always glad to spread the love. And if you are actually interested, tomalak, I can recommend a few songs to you.

I saw Emily Haines solo about a year ago. She was pretty good... love her voice! BSS is pretty cool, too, but I tend to be more of a fan of it's various member groups. The Stars are pretty good, as is Memphis, a side project of one of their members along with another from Metric. The Arcade Fire is far and away my favourite, though... Neon Bible is just an amazing album.

Another great artist out of the Canadian indie scene, though not necessarily connected to that Montreal scene are Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, who play sort of country-rock, much in the spirit of The Band. The Rheostatics are another great band, though probably a little too experimental for some, but personally I think they're one of the five best Canadian bands of the last twenty years.
