Your favorite music artists/bands?
Fellow iPhone Blog forum users, which music artists/bands reign as your favorite?
I'm really an audiophile at heart, and enjoy most types of music (except Reggae and Country). Everything from KISS to Frank Sinatra to Rakim and to Jason Mraz, I enjoy.
What about you?

I find my tastes all over the place. I find System of a Down amusing to listen to (and read their lyrics), but then I also listen to Chris Brown, Michael Buble, Daft Punk, Kanye West, Panic! at the Disco, Sean Kingston, and anything that Timbaland puts his talent on.

My Favs (that I can think of on the fly... I am sure I am missing a lot):
Social Distortion (while I wouldn't call them punk... but good taste Ash)

There are many favorite artist but right now I'm listening shaun barrowes. He is excellent jazz piano player and song writer. I am floored by his songs. His galvanic music is heavenly a great relaxation to the wretched soul.
you can check out about him at shaunbarrowes.blogspot.com

Wow, 2 mentions of Social D., I thought I was the only one around that knew who they were! LOL
I'll do a +3 for them, great band, heck of a live show also!!
I'm mostly into the heavier stuff, new rock. But I like a little bit of the obscure stuff also, Toad the Wet Sprocket, the Cure, Frank Sinatra, George Straight, Dave Koz, basically a little bit of everything.
Going to see Metallica in Concert in just a few weeks, really looking forward to that, seen them a few times, NEVER disappointing.

I've been listening to modern rock lately. But, I go through emo days, rap days, radio punk days, r&b days, acoustic days, and Postal Service days.

Wow, great videos. Weird seeing Mike so young, with the wild hair.
I hadn't seen them at that stage, I saw them a few years ago in Chicago, I think it was the House of Blues. ?? Probably 2-3 years ago. You see them there? Most of that night was a blur for me, LOL
One of my favorites is thier cover of "Making Believe". Love their version of that old song.
Another band that I like, a little similar is one called "Me First and the Gimee Gimme's". Ever heard of them? Mostly cover tunes, but they can take any old boring song, and rock it up.
Soc. D may not be Ramone's, or the Dead Milkmen punk, but definitely are PUNK.
Metallica kinda lost me on the St. Anger album, horrible album, but they redeemed themselves with the latest release of Death Magnetic. They are back to the "old school" sound again.
Can't wait to see them in Moline, looking forward to all the old Master of Puppets, Ride the Lightning, And justice for All stuff.

Social D comes to House of Blues usually for 3 shows at a time. And I'm usually there 2 out of the three and you will always find me first in line hours before the show with my buddies and right next to the stage when the show begins... Yes I am a little Social D obsessed...
And I didn't see them that early either... I was born a year before they first formed the band.

Great calls all around with the Social D. Also josie777 , FANTASTIC call with cynic. One of the most underrated bands in existence...I have too many albums to list. But recently my favorites have been :
The Polar Bear Club
Bring Me The Horizon
This Will Destroy You
The Trainwreck Riders
