I wanna know if we ATS members have similar taste in music, if it is connected with us being here. For example, the amount of ppl who say listen to "smart music" vs. Mindless radio .

Well I rarely listen to any radio, mindless or otherwise, but as for musical tastes, whether there's a pattern or not I don't know. I have noticed though that a lot of people interested in Earth Science (esp meteorology and geology) tend towards heavy/progressive rock and folk.

My personal fav artists include:

Jethro Tull
Bruce Springsteen
Runrig (Scottish folk/rock)
Marillion (prog rock)
Rush
Fairport Convention (folk)

Though I do have a fairly wide taste including traditional gaelic, heavy metal, classical, country and blues - often depending on mood.

Its funny you put Rush there, I was gonna use them as an example of "smart music" in my first post, but decided to see what ppl would come up with. My taste is broad I guess, I like metal, rock, folk rock,

Rammstein
White Stripes
Pearl Jam
Slayer
Metallica

Just to name a few, but I am open to anything as long as its not overly commercial.........or country lol, But I wont dump on anyones taste, just wondering if us "like minded" ppl are drawn to same tunes

Personally I like metal, but mostly find the words too negative or masculine energy for me, but I need the beat. Or alternative rock. I find international music the most creative and compelling, because it often steps out of the steorotypical boxes our music is in. Such as Jrock, Penicillin/Machine (love Hakuei), D (Asagi's voice is incredible), Alice Nine, Gazette. Also Russian metal band Slot. This is a nice blending of male and female energies. This one has a bit of a 2012 meaning:

I have a friend who is a radio person and she is oblivious to the world. As long as she has her happy bubbly music, a pretty American Eagle shirt and American Idol she is happy...........revolting

Yeah, I love rock too, like Metallica, Nirvana, Staind, System of A Down, Breaking Benjamin. I'm a musician, so I choose to make rock music myself, but I do like other kinds of music.
The only thing with the rock bands I just mentioned is what Mystiq actually implied. Some of the messages are negative. I was really getting into Static-x, but I started getting a bad vibe about it. I mean, I can still listen to these groups, but I just can't let those "messages" get drilled into my head.
Peace.

See, theres a great example! System are awesome! They sing about whats wrong with the world, injustices and war. They try to bring awareness to all this #, and you are correct, you cannot let neg messages get to you. But the world is a negative place sometimes, you have to be aware of both sides and im sorry, Lady Gaga doesn't show that, lol

Its bad when I love the beat, the energy from the song, but have to do a mental clearing of all bad vibes, all bad NPL, and say cancel cancel, while listening or working out.
I often listen to live365.com, some really good tunes there. In a couple months I intend to go VIP as some of the money goes to the artists, which I like, and I do want to support them. But for the international ones, youtubes and other sites are the best source. And I've ordered 3 dvds so far because of it, and have a list of another 5 to do this year.

That slot tune is very good, but I would wait until after work. She knocks the hoods of some guys there!!
And you have to hear it loud!

Havn't heard anyone say hip hop yet, I think because its litterally garbage. Its substanceless, homophobic, commercial, etc. Its all about i'm better than you, I have more wealth, my dick is bigger, etc. Granted it may have started as an outlet for urban agression and concerns. But now its mindless dribble. Plus, thanks to hip hop, I can't buy a nice hat anymore

Open mindedness linked to music??

I believe that as long as you do not listen to church music, you are almost guaranteed to have an open mind of some form.

I listen to

Country
Classic Rock
Alternative Rock
Techno Dance
Classical
Hip Hop
But never church music.


Edit 10 minutes later.... Now that I think about it. If one shuns one type of music , that is a form of closed mindedness .. When I thought to myself that I do not listen to church music I must be open minded, but in fact I am sort of closed minded for not allowing one type of music over others.

To have a more complete open mind, I just might have to add church music to my collection. An open mind is capable of so much more.

I never listen to the radio, ever.

Music I like is fairly restricted, though I don't mind anything aslong as it's done well. My main music love can be got from my user name. (Acid techno,it's fantastic) But I'm partial to some DnB some Gabba and pretty much anything on the rave scene.
basicly, anything that is uplifting, makes me happy and wanna dance.

I never listen to sad music either, even when i feel like a need a good cry. I suppress it like any proper man, and whack on some hard fast dance music.

edit to whack some artists I like up

Chris Liberator
DDR
D.A.V.E the drummer
Paul Cortex
Guy McAffer (Geezer)
GunJack
Brad Lee
Junkie Slip
Lenny Dee
Julian and Aaron Liberator
All of the Stay Up Forever crew
ect.

I'm quite partial to a bit of hip-hop myself.
Not the type you are talking about.... but the conscious, positive organic kind.... you shouldn't label all one type of music crap or misogynistic because of the crap you hear on the radio.... not a good thing to do.

I'll list some of my fav bands...

Beatles
Stones
Radiohead
Pearl Jam
ATCQ
Talib Kweli
Immortal Technique
Lee "scratch" Perry
Bob Marley
Ben Harper
Bob Dylan
The Roots
Common (sense)
Curtis Mayfield
Marvin Gaye
Massive Attack
DJ Shadow
DJ Krush
DJ Vadim
Eva Cassidy
George Clinton, Parliament, Funkadelic
Outkast (old not new)
Nirvana
Haiku D'Etat
Freestyle Fellowship
Skip James
Robert Johnson
J.B. Lenoir
Son House
Jill Scott
Johnny Cash
Beach Boys
Metallica
RATM
Otis Redding
Sly and Robbie
Stereophonics
The blind boys of Alabama
Chilli Peppers
Weezer

That will do.... and that's just scratching the surface.

Metal, mostly folk and power so there ends up being a small amount of other music I could end up listening to if it's on the radio, since good metal doesn't get on the radio.

Iced Earth
Blind Guardian
Elvenking (earlier stuff)
Alestorm
Amon Amarth
Melechesh
Korpiklaani
Fintroll
Bal-Sagoth
Therion

and of course, the one band no Metalhead can be without.

Dethklok.

generalize much? It seems to me your talking about rap, which is NOT the same thing as hip hop. A Tribe Called Quest, Pharcyde, Madlib, Blackalicous, Souls of Mischief, Blackstar and Gangstarr do not fit your statement, At all.

As far as my favs go?

Primus, Beck, Pearl Jam, Phish, MF DOOM, Alice In Chains, Patsey Cline, Hank Williams SR, Rush, Quasimoto, Cake, Deltron 3030, Kook Keith, Aesop Rock, Grant Green, Wu-Tang, Rusted Root, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin

And I am not trying to generalize hip hop as crap. I am refereing to commerical, like 50 cent, its garbage. I am aware of bands like the roots, who have a socail commentary. I like metal, but there is A LOT of awful metal out there too. This was a way to see if we all gravitated more to bands which a socail concious or a message. I have my guilty pleasure music too btw, not trying to come off snobbish

David Gilmour
Radiohead
Electric Hellfire Club
My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult
Metallica - I should get some kind of badge: been to 12 concerts lol I was on the Metallica bandwagon in 1986 - a friend got a sample tape from LA and we were hooked - I felt they sold out when I was in college with "Enter Sandman" but, I've made up with 'em.

Lords of Acid - don't ban me, it's a band name lol ::tickles mods::

Philip Glass
Days of the New
Lenord Cohen

The Cure

Seriously, I'm all over the place. One thing I can't stand is country music, sorry, I can dig and do have Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline it's like....country goth lol

Edit: crap, I see other posts and I'm like oh yeah, I like that: I need to add Dead Kennedys; ::blush:: I do like 50 cent - his voice his 'hot' lol; Marvin Gaye; Suicidal Tendacies; punk; metal; goth; grunge

Im gonna have to say, i do listen to music that is politcally charged, and usually has a mesasage to the listener.
System of a down,
Corporate avenger,
Hed (p.e.) (planet earth)
Corrosin of conformity,
Dirty rotten imbeciles,
Dead kennedys,
basically alot of new, and old punk and some metal,crossover etc.
I can also say that Hed (p.e.) is what brought me to inquire about my world.
Got me to watch zeitgeist, loose change, and a few other movies along with a few messages here and there.
