Favourite Band / Singer/ Musical Artists

What are some of ya'lls favourite musical artists? I listen to anything and everything. I don't really have a favourite genre because I do listen to everything. But I mostly like Rap, Hip-hop, R&B, and pop music. Is there a specific genre you prefer over another?

Some of my favourites are
-Pink
-Nick Lachey
-Gunit [50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck]
-Gavin Degraw
-Backstreet Boys
-Nickelback
-Linkin Park
-Mario Vazquez
-Stacio Orrico
-Three Doors Down
-Three Days Grace
-Eminem
-Brandy

And that's just to name a few.

Re: Favourite Musical Artists?

I listen to just about anything with the exception of hiphop and rap. There is also a lot of pop stuff that I don't like but some of it is alright. It generally just depends on my mood and the occassion. When I'm driving, its generally country or classic rock, both of which I find generally make good "cruising" music. Hanging out at home calls for metal/hard rock, classic rock, or oldies, depending on who I'm hanging out with and how I'm feeling. Some of my favorite artists:

Jimmy Buffett
Alan Jackson
Garth Brooks
Metallica
Ozzy Osbourne
John Lennon
The Beatles
Rolling Stones

Also, Jimmy Buffett is absolutely the best artist in the world to see live in concert. I've been to several concerts by various artists, but I've been going to Jimmy Buffett every year for almost 10 years now and don't plan on stopping as long as he keeps visiting Indianapolis (my prefered venue for convenience) or Chicago. (my backup site if I can't make his Indy concert)

Cool, you all have great taste.

I really like Jack Johnson too. I have his "In Between Dreams" album and I am also starting to listen to Panic! as well.

Re: Favourite Musical Artists?

I'm more into pop punk / emo / rock stuff than anything else; though I'm not exactly good at classifying my favourite bands. My friend is trying to get me into hardcore metal / screamo type bands though... not working as of yet. I pretty much refuse to listen to R'n'B, hip hop or rap... Anyway, these would have to be my more current favourites; most of which are fairly popular:

Panic! At The Disco
Fall Out Boy
Taking Back Sunday
Brand New
Muse
Foo Fighters
Killswitch Engage
Goodnight Nurse
After The Fall
30 Seconds To Mars
A.F.I.
Sum 41
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Hawthorne Heights
My Chemical Romance
The Audition
Silverstein
June
Gyroscope
Papa Roach
Kaiser Chiefs
Eskimo Joe
Snow Patrol
The Used
The Offspring
The Academy Is...
Blink 182
Something With Numbers
Sex Pistols

That's just the start as well... I'll spare everyone from my full list hehe...

Music keeps me sane.

Re: Favourite Musical Artists?

Too many to name. I like just about every Power Metal band, with some Thrash, Black and Death Metal thrown in for good measure.

I will just name my top 15 bands:

Blind Guardian
Gamma Ray
Iron Maiden
Kamelot
Rhapsody
Nightwish
Sonata Arctica
Children of Bodom
Dream Theater
Edguy
Grave Digger
Sonata Arctica
Emperor
Helloween
Amon Amarth

Some bands like Hammerfall, Symphony X and Stratovarius used to be high on my list, but now I am a bit bored of them, so...yeah.

Re: Favourite Musical Artists?

I'm really into classic rock:
Beatles
Who
Led Zeppelin
Moody Blues
Pink Floyd
Yes
Cat Stevens
Joan Baez
Bob Dylan
Eagles
Lynyrd Skynyrd
Jimi Hendrix
Cream
... the list goes on.

I also like some modern stuff:

White Stripes
... my main favorites.

That's just a good chunk of it; I could go through my iPod and type all the artists, but that'd be a lot of typing.

Re: Favourite Musical Artists?

I mostly listen to 80's thrash, like:

Metallica
Slayer
Testament
Exodus
Forbidden
Kreator
Dark angel
Overkill
Anthrax
Sepultura

But I also like various death/power/speed/black metal (the only black metal band I like is Mercyful Fate, which don't really PLAY black metal, but are considered black metal because of the lyrics).
