wow i must be out of it, there are a lot of those bands i have not even heard of.

i am an 80's child, so back then i loved poison and motley crew. 90's was nirvana, pearl jam, mother love bone and soundgarden. nowadays i am into linkin park, korn and saind. also like some hip hop like sean paul and nelly.

carrieann, from the bands you said you listen to, im not suprized you havnt heard of most of these others. got to get away from that top 40 crap :)
11/24/2003 08:10:43 PM · #10
Excellent selections John. I'd add Jean Michel Jarre as one of my favorite "Electronica" artists. We're going to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra on December 20th; looking forward to it a lot.

I pretty much like everything, except for Country, Bluegrass, Jazz, Blues and Opera (although there are exceptions). Other than that, just about anything goes! I love 80's music. Also like techno, new-age, dance, rock. It all depends on what I'm in the mood for!
11/24/2003 08:13:53 PM · #11
yes i always love hearing that my taste in music is crap. i mean that literally. everyone tells me that...lol. i guess i'm lazy, i only have time to listen to whatever is playing on the radio on my way to and from work.
