there are, Very, few artists/bands from which i like All of their songs.

however, since i listen to, and genuinely like, all kinds of music, there are a Lot of artists/bands that have some amazing songs.

a few off the top of my head:

Vienna Teng(current favorite artist) (my medea, lullaby for a stormy night, and eric's song)
Loreena McKennit (dante's prayer, stolen child, lady of shalott, penelope's song)

Alter Bridge (shed my skin, broken wings, in loving memory)
Metallica (whiskey in the jar, ain't my bitch, king nothing, nothing else matters, mama said)
Black Spider (save your life)
Flying Steps (we are electric)
Linkin Park (leave out all the rest, numb, crawling, my december)
3 Doors Down (changes, landing in london, father's son, behind those eyes, your arms feel like home)
Lifehouse (everything, hanging by a moment, breathing, storm, trying)
Apocalyptica
Bobby McFerrin (don't worry be happy, drive)
Breaking Benjamin (dance with the devil, diary of jane, what lies beneath)

Yet Nirvana isn't on your list. Nirvana is his best band and probably always will be.


*sigh* You know what they say about opinions.

I respect Nirvana and all, but I'm just not a fan of most of their songs compared to Foo Fighters and Them Crooked Vultures. Not to mention the drum parts he's done on several other bands' songs.

Rap, not today's rap, not soldier boy or Kanye or Wayne or any of those people. Eminem is my favorite artist of all time.

Eminem IS today's rap. Him and Lil Wayne. If you're trying to talk about not today's rap, where is the shout out to NWA or Public Enemy or Run DMC?

I can't help but chuckle when I see anyone mention the NWA. Oh man, Ice Cube, why are you on TBS? Are we there yet? What?

Anyways, Soulja Boy is where it's at. YYYYYOOOUUUUU!!! SUPERMAN THAT...

Heh. I'm sure the shame will hit me in a few moments.

Linkin Park, Nickelback, and Drake are some of the worst musical acts to ever exist.

I'll agree to Nickelback, but not so much on the other two.

Not his Recovery album, I mean it was okay, but I'm talking about The Marshall Mathers LP (Still the most fastest selling album of all time), Slim Shady LP, Eminem Show (my favorite), etc.

I'm such a massive Tiny Tim fan. I loved "Tiptoe through the tulips" and "I'm so happy".

No one cared? They were the frontier of a friggin movement. Someone has to care. Props for being a RATM fan though.

I'm surprised no one has listed Radiohead yet, probably one the most relevant, influential, ground-breaking, and cerebral bands,,,well, ever.

I also love Tom Waits, Nirvana, and The Wrens.

Yet for some reason, they make millions of dollars through sales?

Not saying I disagree with you, but just making a point. Easy to say we hate certain artists (god knows I do it), yet if they're at a stage where we can hate them, chances are they're successful.

I don't think revenue necessarily equals substance, it's not like McDonald's is the greatest restart in the world, it's just the easiest and accessible for lots of people.

EDIT: Though I guess you can't argue whether they are successful, just that they may not have as much substance to their music.

Couldn't agree more. I think Fred Durst is an oxygen thief.

I personally like Linkin Park, Nickleback, and Creed. Although I have to say I like country songs more. Most of them have a message or meaning behind the songs. I like Toby Keith the most and his patriotic songs.

Well, to be honest, I think the original point of the thread was to name current fav bands (I do love Radiohead but only once in a blue moon. However, I always respect what they have done for music) and really only now divulged into what has influence, moreso in the rap scene than music in general.

To DRX, I didn't say unsuccessful musical acts, just worst musical acts. I figure worst is a general term so it can be misunderstood, but I meant as in not talented or musical. Drake, I think, is the iceberg of crap Hip-hop and by Hip-hop, I mean anything well known other than The Roots. Lil Wayne sucks, Drake sucks, Nicki Minaj sucks, blah blah blah. I'm hypocritical because I like some of their songs. I will acknowledge that they sure as hell aren't good though.

I believe you are reffering to the trend of music coined as "hip-pop".
