Breaking Benjamin - Who Wants to Live Forever Queen Cover

It's a great song, originally sang by a great band and covered again by a great band! "Who wants...to live...foreveeeeerrrrr"
I managed to pry myself away from The Diary of Jane somehow.

Breaking Benjamins new album is going to be released on August 8th. It features The Diary of Jane and You to name but two of the new songs. The rest are unanounced except Topless which was previously only played live.

The Mummies - Sooprize Package for Mr. Mineo

How would I best describe The Mummies? Well, they describe themselves as the "Kings of Budget Rock", but I just classify their music as good ol' rock-and-roll.

Deftones - Hexagram
It's being played by a streaming radio station (www.rtds.org is the URL given); I always listen to streaming radio when I have to work long hours on Uni assignments.

For the record, I love Bon Jovi's music :punk

I'm listening to Death Cab for Cutie. At first I didn't really like their music, but then it grew on me. To me it sounds like a mix of Indie Rock and General Rock. The melodies are simple and clean, and can relax you after a long day of work or school. This music is good around the campfire with friends, or with close family members.

The reason why I started to like them is because i saw them on the OC season 2, which was a very good plug for them. If they ever come to Buffalo, I would definetely see them.


just listening to the samples on the website now... tbh i dont really like it but that was your first impression as well so maybe theyll grow on me if i give them the chance - thats if. ive never watched the oc (except for the odd minute or 2 to check out the hotties :):), so your post was the first time ive ever heard of them. i dunno theres just not enough substance, not enough meat there, yknow?

I am now listening to a live recording of Song for the Dead by Queens of the Stone Age. This is a great band, as I've realized since I now have their discography. I recommend it for anyone into this sort of music.

I'm listening to Songs For The Deaf by Queens of the Stone Age. I think it's one of the better albums of this decade. Nothing extremely creative or flashy, it's relatively straightforward rock n' roll. Great stuff that I'd recommend to anyone who just wants to rock out.

Edit-Holy *******, that's weird Stryker. I didn't even see you post that before I posted this.

:o mental link! to the both of you: i applaud your taste. raul: i agree, qotsa specialise in making music that works just on the strength of its ingredients (josh hommes voice, chunky bass...) rather than any gimmicky flourishes, and it worked for 3+1/2 albums (second half of lullabies didnt do it for me im afraid). not to say that i dont like innovative music of course - i love system of a down exactly for their inventiveness + ability to surprise you with every verse (saw them last june in brixton btw :rockon:).

Porcupine Tree - Live in Germany

Listening to this because of Raul's recommendation. Uh, they say they mix a lot of genre's into their bag of tricks, mostly gleaned from music they gravitate toward in the first place. I find it to be very easy to listen to. Catchy. And alternately, relentless yet melodic.

As you all know, the previous incarnation of this thread has been closed. This new thread will hopefully improve upon the old and bring to the table new things as well.

Right now I'm listening to Pitchshifter. Not many people know about them I don't think. But they did make themselves widespread around in 1999. Their first album was about in 1992 but changed the style of music around 1996. Thus becoming a bit more recognized in the late '90's. That's when I first started listening to them. :): They are British but broke up in about 2003.

Currently I am listening to their song "Genius." Most of their songs are a mix of a small bit of samples and guitars. The genre is industrial metal which in my opinion is pretty cool. Also my favorite album would have to be www.pitchshifter.com.

It has one of those cool album names for when the internet started strongly taking over our lives.

By the way this new thread ROCKS. I don't know why we kept the other one going for so long.

Right now (and for the past 30 minutes), I have been listening to a live performance of Everlong by the Foo Fighters. And hot damn, I think it's awesome. I cannot stop listening to the intro - it's just awesome in its purest form for me.

Foo Fighters - Everlong (Live at Japan)

I thought the origional was good - this is even better for me. I've seen some videos of other Everlong performances, but this is the best I've heard yet.

Foo Fighters are a wicked band. And I prefer their older stuff more so then the new songs. I don't know why, they just seem a little rawer, and I liked that about them. Regardless they still make awesome music.

I'm listening to Tool's 10,000 Days in an effor to like it more. It's still not as good Lateralus, or just perhaps not at accesible. I'llk keep listening to it until I either love it, or get sick of it. Currently I really like the first 5 tracks, and haven't listened to the last half of the album enough.

While I love 10,000 Days, it doesn't quite measure up to Lateralus or Ænima in my opinion. That's not to say that it isn't one of the best albums to come out in a long time. I can't decide on my favorite track from it, it's a toss-up between Jambi, 10,000 Days, The Pot, and Right In Two.

Since 10,000 Days has been out I've been listening to a lot of Tool, obviously. And going back through their stuff I find I'm not a big a fan of Aenima as I used to be. I just find the tracks to be a little boring. They're deffinitely under-produced, but there's something else lacking. Lateralus has a lot more depth to it, which is why I like it better.

Yeah the production on Ænima is notoriously crappy, but I love that album to pieces. Lateralus is better in nearly every way though. Strangely enough, most people like Ænima the best out of Tool's work.

Yeah I know. People were turned off by the introspective and mysticism/religious slant of Lateralus. And almost usually I would be too. But it's just such a great album. Though yeah, more people like the angry loud Tool, as opposed to the reflective Tool.

PS - Great post w-ninja, I'll have to go through some of that music later.
