    In no particular order:

    Taproot: A powerful, metallic emotional rollercoaster with a positive message.

    Red Hot Chilli Peppers (new): A modernized version of Blood Sugar Sex Magik, more positive and influential than before, and includes the only 6 minute song I like to listen to over and over again, Venice Queen.

    Saliva: Also a metallic emotional rollercoaster with more music than Taproot, but not as much pure emotion. A positive influence on emotions as well. The CD Back Into Your System has a track called Pride, dedicated to 9/11, in the form of a hardcore mental upbringing by Americans, for Americans.

    Disturbed: A modern metallic mental upbringing of emotions and a general view of life. The old Disturbed expresses less emotions, but is more like a modern 1991 Metallica.

    Static-X: Energy and mid-level screaming. Not death metal, but the type of screaming in which you can understand what Wayne Static is saying.

    Orgy: A soft, super-modern, possibly futuristic, version of Metallica in a rock sense.

    Coldplay: Heart and pure emotion. The video for In My Place is basically that one scene. You don't need to make a video of every first thing you see and combine them to make a video, just purity.

    Crazytown: Modern hip-hop/rap with a sense of emotion to it.

    Korn: An extreme expression of a depressent's emotions through life's struggle as a child and as an adult. 5 CDs, and still alive, so I guess he isn't suicidal.

    Shakira: Yes, a pop singer. For those thinking "Another talentless pop artist...", think again. Shakira is a Latino artist, won talent awards at age 10, and speaks mostly Spanish. Her newest CD, Laundry Service, is mostly English, one of the toughest languages known to Earth. Tell me that isn't talent.

    P.O.D: Similar to Disturbed, but with a various rock and metal twist throughout the album. Again, a positive influence on the view of the world, and it takes no explicit material to express that simple emotional standpoint.

    As for songs, probably
    Push It and Bled For Days by Static-X
    Set It Off and Satellite by P.O.D
    Whenever, Wherever by Shakira
    Ball Tongue, Blind, Here To Stay, and I Can Remember by Korn
    Prayer and Liberate by Disturbed
    Pride, Superstar I and II by Saliva
    Lots of RHCP songs and basically the entire Taproot album

    King Cobra - I'm afraid to say that your taste in heavier music really belies your age. Listen to some Fugazi or Kyuss to get a different perspective from all that nu-metal!

    No offense, but why anyone would give Disturbed shelf room is beyond me:confused:

    Krossfyter- I'm more inclined to your choices - but why Sigur Ros? I bought the new album and it's probably the worst CD I own! Seven minute slowed-down-Radiohead, one-chord atmospherics really don't do it for me at all!

    wooo hoo another music thread :) :) :)

    Queens of the Stone Age
    I might be going to see them live this friday :) anyone else seen them???

    Kyuss
    NIN
    Tool
    Dj Shadow
    Deltron 3030
    Fat Freddys Drop

    I should probably stop cause I'll just keep going.

    Hey Dunepilot, have you heard any of Masters of Reality ??
    My mates was telling me about them today. They are part of the QOTSA family tree, if you havn't checked out their web site, you should just for the family tree, it's quite interesting.

    I have to agree with Dune here King Cobra. you should really get out more.
    Kyuss maybe a bit of an aquired taste for you, maybe try queens of the stone age first, or Black Sabbath.

    You're really lucky if you do get to see the Queens. I tried to get tickets when they were in the UK recently, but they were ridiculously over-subscribed. It annoys me that I tried to persuade some mates to go and see them with me nearly 4 years ago when they were completely unknown unless you'd been a Kyuss fan and were following their progress because of that.

    I wish I'd seen them when you could:
    a) still get tickets
    b)see them in a small venue.

    Most of the best gigs I've ever been to have been when bands are about to explode onto the mainstream consciousness, but they're still playing small venues.


    I think I heard some Masters of Reality a while ago. Chris Goss from Masters is a really great producer - he was behind the fantastic sound of Kyuss many times, and I recently bought 'Much Against Everyone's Advice' by now-defunct Belgian pop-rock band Soulwax, which he also produced.

    I think it's the best album I've bought recently and I'd highly recommend it.

    I have to say I'm rather impressed with the diversity here in musical tastes. I guess Mac users really are more creative. Normally I don't post, just a reader due to Apple's importance to my financial well being and my search for more info as I contemplate switching. But I've gotten suckered into a few here in the community section, so here goes...


    Pigface
    My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult
    Front 242
    The Doors
    Portishead
    Gwar
    Rollins Band
    Charlie Parker
    Pegboy


    To name a few!
