Your top 5 Music Artists/Bands of All Time

Forums - Music Discussion - Your top 5 Music Artists/Bands of All Time

I'm just curious what everyone considers their favorite music artist's/bands. If you want to expand on it and include top 5 current artist that's cool too. 

For me in no particular order;

1. The Beatles. Revolutionized modern music and just simply amazing to listen to. I wasn't always a Beatles fan. It was something I started to appreciate when I was in my late teens. 

2. Johnny Cash. By far my favorite country artist. Whenever I hear his music I can hear the pain inside him. I just love the dark-gritty nature of his music. 

3. System of a Down. My go to band during my teen years. Ever since my sister introduced me to them I loved all their music.  

4. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Kind of out of left field compared to other artist. When I was a kid, my parents showed me the movie Amadeus, which is one of my favorite movies of all time. I fell in love with his music and personality after that. 

5. Kendrick Lamar. Might not have revolutionized the rap game, but I would say he's the best of his genre now and will go down as one of the best rappers ever. His story telling and lyrics are top notch. 

So what is your top 5?   



Around the Network

1. Dir En Grey. Just my favourite band by far. Don't really like their first couple of albums, but from Vulgar onwards they've been pretty much perfect. Can't wait for their next album, it's been over 3 years already!

2. UVERworld. Not in to them as much as I used to be, but still love some of their older stuff. Plus their songs are great for karaoke.

3. Linkin Park. The best debut album I've ever heard, with a great 2nd album too. They also had one of the worst albums I've ever heard, but started to get good again after that.

4. Yui. My go to travel music. Any time I'm on a train I'll start off by listening to some of her songs.

5. One Ok Rock. Not too keen on their more recent stuff, but I still really like their older albums.

Which Dir en grey songs are your favourite? I like Yokan, Shokubeni, Merciless Cult, C, and a few others. Withering to Death is my favourite album of theirs.

A lot of them! Lately I've been listening to 激しさと、この胸の中で絡み付いた灼熱の闇 a lot. I really love Agitated Screams of Maggots, 凌辱の雨, Lotus, Glass Skin (both English and Japanese versions) and Dozing Green (both English and Japanese versions again) too though. My favourite album would be The Marrow of a Bone.

I've lost a lot of interest in music (unlike other forms of entertainment I don't really read about its history or follow it). I pretty much exclusively listen to video game music now. But I'll try.

Our Lady Peace
Linkin Park
Pantera
The Offspring
Alice in Chains

Like John Coltrane and Bill Evans too.

That title, though.

It hurts my eyes. Bad.

Anyway I'm not known for experiencing a variety of content in any format really, I just usually stick to the stuff I like and play/watch/listen to it over and over. So I'm not sure I can come up with a decent list of favorite bands because I usually just go really deep on the ones I like and don't really listen to anything else for a good while (I've also been mostly listening to videogame music in the last few years, so that makes it harder too). I guess...

5. The Beatles
4. Queens of the Stone Age
3. Deep Purple
2. Muse
1. Electric Light Orchestra

Honorable mention U2. I guess I'm fine with that list, actually.



Hard to choose 5 as I get bored of music quickly.

1. System of a Down
2. Maximum the Hormone
3. Slipknot

4. Rammstein

5. I will just give shoutouts to a few of them: Lonely Island (the comedy!), Big Bang, Fall out Boy, 3oh3, Alestorm, Seether, Fort Minor, Lindemann, tons of anime and video game music.

Also, this might be totally unrelated but it's not totally unrelated, so I'm gonna take my chance. I was just listening to this and I gotta say (even though I don't like to), 2 months after I'm still qute proud of that song. (...yeah. It's a music thread, so doing self-promotion is pretty much mandatory.)
