Discuss your favorite bands. I like to consider myself a musical omnivore, I listen to anything that I like or deem good. Just a couple of days ago I listened to this old masterpiece for 3 hours straight Followed by the entire LOTR soundtrack. I have two all time favorite bands, one current and one of the old classics. My all time favorite band of the modern era will have to be The Gaslight Anthem. Working class rock n roll mixed with Punk that speaks to me. Their music resonates well with my entire upbringing, being raised in a small working class town and all, not poor far from it actually but raised on the values my parents were raised on. They write lyrics filled to the brim with truths and stories that most can relate to. This song I am linking here is from their latest album released this summer. My all time favorite classic is a man that has been with me subconsciously my entire life. The one and only Boss, Bruce Springsteen. Bruce is my dad's all time favorite and he always played Bruce when I was a kid growing up, as a kid I scoffed at it since like most kids I was trying to step out of my fathers shadow and be my own person. But when I moved out of the house three years ago to go to university. Once I had settled into my first dorm room I started getting home sickness and missing my family and the town I grew up in, I found that listening to the Boss helped ease the homesickness since it reminded me of my parents and my hometown. Therefore Bruce is the all time great and all time favorite in my mind. Now I want to hear your favorites, tell me your favorites songs and bands and please give an explanation of why they are your favorites.
