Favorite Artist?

Recommended Posts

MikeMyth

Didn't see anything like this created yet, but if it is feel free to take it down.

 

What's everyone's favorite musical artist? Whether it be a band or singer, what artist could you never get tired of?

I've been in love with Oasis for a long time. I can listen to them whatever the mood I am in. I was upset when they split up but I still listen to their solo albums.

 

My favourite song of all time is Live Forever that they did in 1994 when I was only a year old.

Probably a toss up between Burzum and The Cure.

Iron Maiden was the first band I ever really slavishly followed:

 

 

 

Although, my first thought/response to this was Einstuerzende Neubauten, and if I wouldn't have thought harder I would've gone with them:

I tend to obsess of a good musician I love. Starting with the most recent.. I'll say I've had all their albums at bought at least a tshirt! :p

 

Right now it's Boards of Canada.. previously..

Kraftwerk

AphexTwin

Depeche Mode

Led Zeppelin

The Doors

Beastie Boys

 

I keep going back to the Beastie Boys though. First band I got in to by myself when I was 12 or 13.

yeah I don't like the concept of picking a 'favorite' anything.

 

I have a deep connection to many different types of music depending on the mood or my feelings what's going on in my life. my 'favorite' right now will change in about 2 hours. favorites from high school are still favorites but for very different reasons than favorites I've had as an adult. if you can say that you have just 1 favorite artist you're likely a boring person ;)

 

it's like, where would you even begin?

I listen to so many different styles of music it's literally no fair to pick a favorite, let alone compare them.

I'd like to say that I don't really have one, but yeah, it's in my signature, The Beastie Boys, Mark Ronson(although he mostly produces), Duran Duran, Kreeps, Les Savy Fav, Dub Pistols. Too many to actually list.

I can honestly say that my favorite anything ever is Donald Fagen/Steely Dan, without having to stop and think. I have many that I love, but Dan/Fagen is light years ahead. It's not fair to assume that therefore I as a whole am boring.

Well, my favourite isn't necessarily one that I'll want to be listening to all the time - as you say it changes a lot which artist I'll specifically want to listen to at any one time, but my favourite is the one I simply like the most. Even if it doesn't fit my mood at the time I can still listen to it and think it's nicer than what I want to listen to.

 

Of course, that doesn't mean it'll apply to everyone :p

 

Oh, for the thread my favourite is Elbow. I can't beat 'em.

Queen

I have many favorite artists, including, but certainly not limited to, Foo Fighters, Thin Lizzy, Ben Folds Five, The Darkness, Foxy Shazam, Pyotr Illich Tchaikovsky, and The Wallflowers. But only one band has been able to sweep me off my feet.

 

At first, it was the music. Over a decade ago, my buddies and I were playing Goldeneye while listening to the radio. Bohemian Rhapsody popped on the radio, and I asked them who was playing. They said Queen, but I didn't think much of it. But then several days later we were doing the same thing, but this time We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions popped on the radio. I asked the same question, and they replied with the same answer.

 

I was hooked.

 

How could the same band sound so different? That night, I begged my parents to take me out so I could buy an album. From there, I watched the music videos, watched dozens upon dozens of interviews, doodled the Queen crest during classes, collected as many T-Shirts as possible, and quite practically lived and breathed their music. For a solid 5 years (maybe more), I'd listen to at least an albums worth of their music per day. It was an obsession, really.

 

In recent years, I've slowed down, but it's no longer just the music. Upon learning about Freddie Mercury's illness, and the way he faced death with a grin on his face, and a microphone in his hand, I became inspired. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him. When times get rough, I often think about what he would have done, and as strange and unhealthy as it sounds, his motto in life helps guide me. As for the other members of the band, I look up to Brian May because he's more than just an guitarist, composer, astrophysicist, animal rights activist, and author. He's a selfless man who considers himself no better than anyone else. As a musician, I'm astounded by Roger Taylor, who is a multi-instrumentalist, and hit song writer, with a knack for being a lady's man. And perhaps most importantly, I can relate with John Deacon, who is a quiet and reserved man. Quite frankly, he's one of the most underrated bass players in rock music (but yeah, I guess you could say I'm biased).

 

Sometimes, people ask me why I like the band. I could say everything I've already said, but it would leave out the very reason I've never grown bored of the music. Little do some people know, but Queen has composed in a wide variety of styles. They've dabbled in psuedo-baroque, gospel, folk/country, opera (Freddie Mercury composed an album with opera diva Monsteratt Caballe), vaudeville, disco/funk, Latin, psychedelic rock, big band/jazz (all done on guitars, of course), rockabilly, flamenco, heavy metal, punk, sacred music (on their first album), etc, etc., etc....

 

F*ck. I wrote a book. Congratulations to anyone who actually read my post in its entirety. Here are two of my favorites, that demonstrate their diversity.

I don't really have a favorite tbh, just artists I like to listen to. I mean, I guess I don't get tired of listening to ozzy, but I wouldn't say he's my favourite.

 

I like to make a small collection of the better songs in my complete collection so I'll just name some of the artists and, for the hell of it, I'll link a music video.

 

 

 

  • . HM:
  • Eric Johnson
  • HM: Megitsune
  • ... I'd throw out some HMs but that'd be quite the list.
  • HM:
  • Disturbed
  • HM: All of their stuff I guess, there's only 2 or 3 songs I don't like from them.

There's some others I didn't put on the list, but I'd say these are the best of the bunch. I'd say Jack White is worth a mention, but he absolutely butchers his own songs live.

I liked that, lol. And the best artists are the ones who don't abide by a norm. And by that I mean a certain sound, if you will. Where you could say this is "x" even if you haven't heard that song from "x". Queen is definitely an example of the opposite of this. Similar to one of my favorite bands, Radiohead, it's like every album is experimenting with a different style, or genre even. It always impresses me to hear artists whom you can't really say are a specific genre because of their wide range of styles.

It's probably no secret that I love Lana Del Rey. She's a modern artist but she has this classic vibe to her.

My favorite artists are mostly 90's alternative artists. I'm not quite sure why that happened, as I was born in the 90's, not raised in it. Either way, Nirvana is my absolute favorite band. My other favorite artists include Beck, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Cage the Elephant. Love me some Rob Zombie as well. And Butthole Surfers. Lot's of bands, man. But Nirvana is at the top of the list, no doubt.

Current favorite is Knife Party

 

 

As well as Daft Punk

 

 

Along with Diplo

 

 

and also Noisia

 

 

Hmm....lifetime favorite band would have to be System of a Down. Growing up in Los Angeles, finding a hard rock/metal band with an all-Armenian cast like me was amazing. Their music carried me through high school and I still religiously follow their exploits to this day. All their albums are bingeable and I can listen to each one in its entirety all day long.
