Tell It To Me Tuesday...Back To The Future...

Today, Janet asks..."What are your favorite bands or artists of today?" And what artists show promise for the future? She gives no limit on this one. Hell yeah.

Staind- I use to make fun of people who like hard rock/metal music. Now...here I am. I started to like stained in the 90's, when my life felt like the lyrics to "Mudshovel" I feel betrayed Stuck in your ways /And you rip me apart With the brutal things you say /I can't deal with shit anymore I just look away/ Cause you can't feel my ANGER You can't feel my pain /You can't feel my torment Driving me insane I can't fight these feelings they bring only pain/ You can't take away Make me whole again.
I'm all about music with lyrics that I can relate to, and Staind has the best lyrics for people who have been fucked over. Beat down, and pushed around. And not to mention, I find Aaron Lewis to be a major hottie.

Eminem-I'll say that I didn't jump on the Slim Shady band wagon until Encore. But I did enjoy some of his music. I became more tolerable in my old age, and able to see his music as humorous, and a marketing ploy, vs. being offended by it. Now, shake that ass for me.

Cold-Please don't confuse Cold....with Coldplay (know how I know that you're gay?). Cold is a kick-ass screaming metal band. Stupid Girl sucked me in, and now I like their older stuff, and look forward to more awesome songs from this band.
Wanna love ya wanna touch ya wanna kiss ya stupid girl. I'm a loner, I'm a loser, I'm a winner, In my mind. I'm a bad one, I'm a good one, I'm a sick one, With a smile..

Disturbed-Who didn't like Down with the sickness? I can see inside you, the sickness is risingDon't try to deny what you feel It seems that all that was good has died And is decaying in me.
I love a man that can scream. Can you see a theme here? I've seen Disturbed a few times live, they fucking rock! The first time I went, I'll never forget it was at a small venue. The stage show images, set up, feel of the crowd (everyone pumping their arms in unison) made me feel like the beginning of Blade. You know, where the vampires bring unsuspecting 'dates' to a rave, then the blood sprinklers come on, and its dinner time? Awesome!

Limp Bizkit - Now, the cool kids might say, I'm a dumbass for still liking these guys, because of some stupid crap that happened on stage. What the hell do I care I wasn't there. And, I'm all about loyalty. I don't just stop liking a band cus of something they did. They rock, I rock with them. A band that made a song like Break Stuff, deserves proper credit.
Its just one of those days,Where you don't want to wake up. Everything is fucked, Everybody sucks. You don't really know why, But you wanna justify, Rippin someone's head off. No human contact, and if you interact, your life is on contract.Your best bet is to stay away motherfucker, It's just one of those days.
And who hasn't done it all... for the Nookie?

50 Cent - Now, I like his music, and I think the anthem of the millenium should be Disco Inferno, or Candy Shop. Live? Worst concert I've ever been to in my life. Ever. In my life. I stil luh ya fiddy!

Godsmack - Fuck yea. Godsmack! Best song for a break up in the world? "Whatever". And I wonder day to day/I don't like you anyway/I don't need your shit today/you're pathetic in your own way/I feel for you/Better fuckin go away/I'm doin' the best I ever did I'm doin the best that I can I'm doin the best I ever did NOW GO AWAY!
Awesome live show also. Saw them a couple of times. You can't help but get up and rock out!

Black Eyed Peas - I don't think they have a song that I don't like. And, they gave birth to Fergie. What more needs to be said?

Lacuna Coil - I'm interested to see if there are any other fans out there. Their an Italian band, people compare them to Evenesence. They opened for one of the rock shows we saw, years ago, and they stuck with me. They're awesome. They recently redid "Enjoy the Silence" but they did it totally different, so I love it.

Linkin Park - I love the mix of rap, mixing, the screaming man, and overall feel of their music. It's just freaking awesome. I wish they would come out with music faster though. Took forever to come up with a new album, and it was a remix of their last album. WTF? But, seeing how they take years between albums, I see them around for a long time. Rock on dudes.

Korn - I love Korn. Don't they tear it up? Why yes, yes they do! I got to see them only once, at Ozzfest, but I'll take it! I lump them into the 'hate music category' and I love it. They came onto the mainstream scene with "Got the Life"
God paged me, you'll never see the lie, who wants to see? God told me, I've already got the life, oh I say... God paged me, you'll never see the lie, who wants to see? God told me, I've already got the life, oh I say...

Drowning Pool - This band was quickly becoming a favorite, then the lead singer had to choke on his own vomit at Ozzfest, and die. They have started coming back with some good music lately so I think they are going to be around for a while. You know drowning pool...."let the bodies hit the floor let the bodies hit the floor, let the bodies hit the floor"

Shakira - I do like some music that's not screaming. I love shakira. Dirty Laundry is my favorite CD to jog on the treadmill to. It's upbeat, and keeps me going. Not to mention, she's freaking hot! "Whenever, Wherever"

Edwin McCain - Duh. Like he wouldn't be on my list? If you go here, you'll hear why he is so magically delicious! I see he is finally back on the East coast touring. I don't like sharing him with the West coast. He better come to Ohio this winter. Momma needs a dose of Edwin. Plus, he misses me.

I gotta end this or I'll go on FOR EV ER! Guess what? It snowed yesterday. Flurries. Nothing stuck, but isn't that depressing?

You too, can Join in the fun!

It's nice to see another fan of Lacuna Coil; they just don't get the pub that they should. We have several bands in common, too.

Jess said...

Okay, I feel a little better now about secretly liking Shakira and the Black Eyed Peas. ;)

supplymadam said...

I know I am showing my age when I say I know some of those bands but not their music. What can I say? But I do like EMINEM of all people.

Mon said...

The first person I know thats heard of them! Hell yea! They're awesome! Great minds like great music. How's it feel to be great?

Secret? Ohhh, they get you moving when your in a funk. Embrace it.

Knowing them is half the battle. And liking Eminem saves you. You're still hip!

Kids Incorporated technically gave birth to the music of Stacy Ferguson. Black Eyed Peas just reinvented her as an African American chick from the hood. :)

Mon said...
