I was singing in the shower just a moment ago and I thought, hey why not share my favorite music with my followers! I'd like to know about your favorite music too because I'm always open to new styles and different sounds. I really like guitar and violin, and the mix of the two in a good rock song is always awesome. Here are some of songs I like best. Now bear with me, I like a lot of very different styles of music, some of it might seem cheesy but I don't care. I will try to follow each video with a comment.
From Breaking Benjamin: I Will Not Bow
Now this is the band I like the most. They have one of the best drummers ever, who has a jazz background and is not at all limited in his approach, and is not afraid to add subtleties to his drumming. They haven't disappointed me whatsoever so far.
From 30 Seconds to Mars: This is War
Now this is one of the bands I started following long before they got very popular, in the times of Capricorn and Fallen. If you like this band check out their older stuff, it's a bit different and less mainstream, but I think you'll like it.
From Chevelle: The Clincher
I like this band's approach to music. The singer/songwriter makes a point of not deliberately making rhymes in his lyrics, avoiding the simple path and doing something different and it works! Their music is awesome, if somewhat misunderstood by some.
From Three Days Grace: Just Like You
This is one of the bands I started following very early as well, and I must admit their last album disappointed me so I posted here one of their older, less mainstream songs, before they got corrupt by the devil in the guise of big paychecks.
From Fuel: Hemorrhage
I could listen to this song on repeat all day long. The singer's voice is very unique.
From Flyleaf: Again
I discovered this band not so long ago through the soundtrack of one of the Resident Evil movies on which they had their song "I'm So Sick" remixed. Self-proclaimed Christian band, which I don't mind because they're not using their music as a funnel for Christian bullshit, so it's all right with me.
From Skillet: Awake and Alive
Another self-proclaimed Christian band that does a very good job of making music without being annoying about their beliefs.
From A Perfect Circle: The Outsider
A classic for me, very strong song. I chose a live version for this one because I hate the offical video, and the live version is just as good if not better.
From Crossfade: So Cold
Now this band is one of the few that I like because of their sound and not so much because of the lyrics. I'm a guitar player and this is the kind of stuff I like to play when I just want to make noise and have fun. Also note, the girl in this video is FUCKING hot.
From Alexisonfire: This Could Be Anywhere In The World
This is one of the very few "screamo" bands that I like, mainly because they are actually doing real music, not some badly slapped together emo stuff that sounds like a rat caught in heavy machinery.
From Bush: Machinehead
One of the old goodies that remind me of my younger times. This and Glycerine are classics for me.
From Foo Fighters: My Hero
Who doesn't love them? For those of you who didn't know, they got their name from the lights in the sky that the American pilots were seeing beside their planes on missions sometimes in WWII, which they thought were prototype German airplanes. The word "foo" actually comes from the French word "feu" which means fire, so they essentially called those lights Fire Fighters.
From Rise Against: Prayer of the Refugee
One of the most "punkish" band that I listen to, they kinda have this rock sound that reminds me a bit of older punk music like Bad Religion and Pennywise.
From Tool: Schism
Another classic that I could listen to all day long. The uniqueness of their sound is what does it for me.
Long list I know, but hey I like a lot of different styles, I actually had to settle for one song per band but some of those bands like Breaking Benjamin for instance, I love almost all of their songs except maybe their few softer songs like Rain. So there it is, fell free to comment on my choices, submit your own choices and I hope you all appreciate!
