A few off the top of my head would be: Fiona Apple, Sublime, The Violent Femmes, The Cranberries, Tracy Bonham, Radiohead, Weezer, Social Distortion, Pink, The Used, System Of A Down, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Leadbelly, A New Found Glory, Motion City Soundtrack, The Bloodhound Gang, Bowling For Soup, Alien Ant Farm, The All American Rejects and Mississippi Fred McDowell...
OOOOOh, I love Fiona Apple and Bowling for Soup. I wonder how some of these bands get their names though? Ever wonder? I mean, how the hell do you come up with a name like Goo Goo Dolls? Or Bowling for Soup?
I heard a story how Nickelback got their name. Something about all the band members worked at Starbucks at some point in their lives, and the totals on orders always came up to $XX.95, so when they gave change it was "here's your nickel back". I don't know how true that is.
I like most cats better than I like most people. I'll try to be nicer if you try to be smarter.
OMG Rottluvr!!! I guess I'm an airhead too. You said you didn't know what the Bloodhound Gang's Foxtrot song was about and neither did I. I googled the lyrics and I am ON THE FLOOR!!!! WAY TOO FUNNY!!!! I knew of the song and never paid any attention to it. NOW I LOVE IT!!! LOL!!! Thanks for the laugh!!!
My favorite type of music is . . . classical. I know, here's me nerding out. It's okay I'm used to it. I'll pretty much listen to anything, but being a trumpet player I'm partial to instrumental music.
