Femme Fatale

Bands/Artists You Instantly Loved After Hearing One Track

Recommended Posts

Femme Fatale

Title got cut off, which bands did you instantly love after listening to just one of their songs?...For me it's Macabre, I heard about a band that writes songs about serial killers, and I thought to myself: Sounds like my kind of band...I was originally going to listen to all of their albums in the chronological order, starting with Grim Reality...But when I found out that they wrote an entire album about Jeffrey Dahmer, my fanboyism forced me to skip all of their previous albums, and listen to that one first...I instantly loved the album, and the band after listening the opening song...

 

When Jeffrey Was A Boy

He Didn't Like His Toys

Instead He'd Dissect Roadkill

Because That's What He Enjoyed

 

Genius lyrics, the drummer's a pro, and come on! They write songs about serial killers, it's awesome...So what about you guys?

Audioslave. When I listened to that riff in Show Me How To Live for the first time it was like "WHOA!". No other band hooked me so quickly:

Sleep, Lightning Bolt, Dinosaur, Sonic Youth, Nirvana, CCR, Black Sabbath (the first music I ever heard, apparently)... ah f*ck, I'm just a massive fan of music, I simply can't list all of the acts that have hooked me instantly.

Last night I was half way through a post and then abandoned it. The amount of bands where I loved one track then went of to have all their albums is too much. It would drive you nuts trying to list them all. I'd say especially for you Fuzz given the massive music head you are.

too many to name... but off the top of my head?

the Black Keys.

 

I heard Stack Shot Billy and thought it was some old ass blues song I had never heard before.

when I realized it was brand new music I was immediately sold.

 

 

 

they've become more poppy lately, but their roots are all Delta blues and garage rock.

For me it would be the band, Insomnium. They're a melodic death metal band that I fell in love with after hearing them for the first time on one of my stations on Pandora. If you want to check them out, here's one of my favorite albums from them.

Came in here to post the same exact band as you. Think it was after hearing Little Black Submarines, and I'm not even sure how or when I heard it, probably off a game, but instantly made me want the album it came from, making me realise I'd heard their stuff before without realising, namely Gold On The Ceiling, which appears in adverts if I'm right? Anyway, an album lead to a couple more albums, which lead to getting their full discography, which has now lead to them been in my top 5 bands of all time. Turn Blue was, different, but still brilliant in it's own way.

Nas.

Came across that shortly after watching Leon the Professional for the first time. Fell in love with the amazing lyricism, storytelling and beats. Truly the greatest of all time.

^ I think the first song I heard from him was either "One Mic" or "Made You Look," afterwards I started diving a bit deeper into his songs. I go through phases where I try to stop listening to Rap (currently in one right now), but whenever a Nas song pop up, I can't help but listen to the song. Him and that generation of rappers had the perfect combination of lyrical content, flow delivery, and beat production.

 

A band I instantly loved is CHVRCHES. I actually heard them first on Forza Horizon 2, one of the stations on the game has "The Mother We Share" on it. I didn't know their name at the time since I wasn't paying attention to the names, but I eventually heard more of their songs on Spotify. A remix of "Clearest Blue" popped up on one of the playlists I listened to, and I later heard the original version on Forza Horizon 3; the original version is personally one of my favorite songs from them. Their music is very catchy, I've been hooked ever since. :)

 

Then there's Megadeth, Iron Maiden, The Weeknd, Bass Drum of Death, the list goes on actually.

I feel ya man. I have the same thing. I feel like what sets Nas apart from most other rappers is how he's mainly about the art and the technical intricacies involved in the art form rather than bloating up his ego. I can listen to Nas at any time because he's just so good at what he does.

I agree about his focus on the artistic aspect of Rap. He's always been down to earth and consistent, there haven't been times where I thought that he purposefully dumbed down his content to pump more sales. More artists with his emphasis on the genre would be a breath of fresh air in an environment dominated by hype songs and artists that can only maintain a notable following for a few months at a minimum.

For me it's got to be Crobot. I learnt they were going to be the support act when I saw Airbourne a few weeks ago so naturally I checked them out...

 

...and my god, instant love. I hear elements of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Slash, modern 70's rock revival, Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Soundgarden and a bunch of others.

 

There's so much groove and swagger in their music and it's infectiously foot tapping!

Motorhead. I forget which Tony Hawk's Pro Skater game it was (Methinks it was 3 or 4) that had "Ace of Spades" on it, but I listened to that song on repeat and just fell in love with Lemmy and his music. And most recently. Ghost. I was listening to Motorhead Radio on Pandora while filling out job apps, and a song came on that I'd never heard which didn't really fit with the stuff that had been playing. I heard a bit of it, and was like, "Nah. F*ck this." and skipped it. The lyrics kept nagging at me though so I looked it up on YouTube and just like with "Ace of Spades" I listened to "Square Hammer" over and over to the point where I got a headache. Listened to some other Ghost songs like "Year Zero" and "Per Aspera Ad Inferi" and just got hooked.

The Alan Parsons Project.

 

First song I heard was "Don't Answer Me" on the radio, like forever ago. Never really cared about them, until I found "I Wouldn't Want to Be Like You" on V, and shortly after I found someone who posted "Eye in the Sky" on the "rate the previous song" thread. The song was very badly rated by the following poster, and the guy who posted it insulted him, critiquing his musical taste (the reply with the rating contained a rap song or similar). I reported the guy for his inmature behavior, and then I listened to the song he posted.

 

I spent a couple of hours trying to find videos of the song with better audio quality. After that I became a fan.

^I agree with you about Alan Parsons Project. Fab band. Thanks to GTA V and a co worker who gave me a copy of their debut album I was instantly hooked.
