    @Sinistas they only a few of those bands I know. Metallica, Megadeth, Opeth, Pink Floyd, Danzig, and Type O Negative. Af for the others I will give them a listen to.

    @Legion There are only three I know of on that list, those being Tech, Lamb of God, and Black Keys. I know of Mayday, but only listen to maybe one or two songs, and as for the rest never heard of them.

    @Zonno So I listen to some Grime including Stormzy, and for some reason, it reminds me of Zef.

    Black Country Communion would be right up your alley. It's got Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple/Trapeze/Black Sabbath on bass and vocals, Joe Bonamassa on guitar and vocals, Derek Sherinian of Dream Theater/Planet X/Alice Cooper/Yngwie Malmsteen/Billy Idol (what a list!), and Jason Bonham on drums.

    It sounds pretty much exactly how you'd expect. Classic/hard rock, but modernised a bit. Here's one of my favorites (it's actually been my ringtone for years, haha):

    Awesome, I assumed that anyone who isn't British wouldn't of heard of him, but then again he's been doing loads of collabs recently. You heard any or his early stuff or just his new album? And if you like Stormzy check out Giggs, JME and Skepta. There's probably a few more but they're the big ones. I don't know who Zef is, I assume another grime artist?

    @Sinistas Yeah, I have to say I enjoy their music. They will definitely be added to my playlist.

    @Zonno I just Youtubed his name and listen to a couple of his new and old stuff. There were some other artists I listen to, but I can't remember right off the top of my head. Zef is the name of South African counterculture and music, the most known artist is Die Antwoord.

    Oooh, now I feel silly! I never heard of him but my brother had so I guess he's pretty popular? I can see the similarities between the two definitely, but I think I prefer Stormzy :P

    Power is the bomb mate! Catchy? Check. Good message? Check. Stormzy? Check. Stuff like this is part of why I like him, he's using his fame to spread a positive message which changes how people think of rap, grime especially as it gets a pretty bad image in Britain.

    Yeah it was a really good message. I wasnt so sure about Stormzys verse at first, but its grown on me. I admit Im not a fan of the opening sentences of his verse, but the rest is lit

    Also have you heard It Aint Me by Selena Gomez? Its such a sad song. And it sounds really good.

    Yeah the first few verses didn't really flow as well as they could've if you as me, but still I thought it was a good addition. I've heard It Aint Me but to be honest Selena Gomez isn't really my favourite. Maybe I just like jumpier songs but it just doesn't do it for me *shrugs

    It would be they since it is three people, but yeah they are pretty popular. They were even in the movie Chappie.

    I don't know if I could give a list of my top ten bands. I'm much more into jazz and classical. I love listening to Bach, Chopin, Debussy, Ravel etc. In jazz, my favorite is probably Glen Miller, but others include count basie, duke ellington, Benny Goodman, Tony Bennett, John Coltrane, Frank Sinatra etc. I do also listen to a few bands. My favorites are Mumford and Sons and the Proclaimers. I also really like Leonard Cohen. I'm really into any kind of music, although I have a vehement distaste for rap and, this goes without saying, scream.

    Looks like we share some tastes man! Mumford and Sons are always a solid choice for me, there's something about rocking out to a banjo that just can't be beaten, although I prefer their earlier stuff, and they also did some collabs with an Indian artist or two a few years ago that I quite like. Frank Sinatra is also awesome, they don't call him the best singer of all time for nothing!

    I can't say much about Classical just because I personally don't like it, but you did mention some good composers. As for the Jazz again you mentioned a lot of great artists, and since you have Frank Sinatra on there I know a person who would be pleased with that for he is his favorite singer of all time.

    I have heard all of those bands, and I have to say Nekrogoblikon is probably one of the ones I can listen to and get a good laugh out of.

    Rogue, you've given me a new band to check out on that list. 

     

    1. Motley Crue.  Still remember the feeling I got when I saw the ad in Circus Magazine for their SatD album and the first time I heard it on my stereo at home.

    2. Ratt.  Just think they never put out a dud album.

    3. Zeppelin

    4. KIX

    5. Metallica

    6. Van Halen

    7. Judas Priest

    8. Def Leppard: Would be higher..but recent releases drive them down the board

    9. Cinderella: Just not enough quantity to go higher

    10. AC/DC.  Love them but too many albums that don't measure up IMO.

    Sabbath/Ozzy was real close, if combined they would probably be on here.  Lot's of bands with 1-2 albums that I love and are on my "must listen" list but I went with quality/quantity over just quality.

    Not a bad band on that list, though I couldn't help to notice there are five or six Hair Metal bands on there, not that is a bad thing. Also, for my list I just went bands I could listen to over and over and hardly get bored of them.
