What are you listening to?

A dedicated forum to discussion of other bands. Wanna talk LL Cool J? Go for it! Prince? Go for it! Spice Girls or Lady Gaga? Go for it! Don't get pigeon-holed into liking just one genre of music!

It's cool that you have diverse taste and I have dug some of the stuff you have posted, but I am curious - do you listen to hard rock to any great degree outside of KISS, Cheap Trick and early VH?

I have just noticed with this forum and others you posted on, you don't seem to like much of the music that the forums are dedicated to.

I am not calling you out or anything, so don't get all uptight. I am just legitimately curious why you post on forums that cater to a certain music style that you don't show much appreciation for.
The short answer is yes. I like a lot of hard rock.

I guess the longer answer is it depends on what you mean by hard rock. What kind of music would qualify to you? I like all the usual kinds of things you'd expect a person that grew up when I grew up would like. Led Zeppelin, UFO, AC/DC, Scorpions, Ratt... and later on GnR, LA Guns... and a little later still Jane's Addiction, Nirvana...etc

Right here in this thread I have posted plenty of what I would consider hard rock. Just recently posted Gary Moore, the Wildhearts, White Zombie and the Cosmic Psychos for example, and many more over the course of the thread. I also recently posted in the Warrior Soul and Circus of Power threads. Two early 90s bands I like a lot and that I would consider hard rock.

I don't like Motley Crue and I don't like Whitesnake and I don't like (what I would consider) extremely cheesy ''modern'' bands like Dirty Honey.

But I do certainly like lots of (again, what I would consider to be) hard rock. Here is a recent example of something I like a lot...

If you watch that Sleaford Mods video you'll notice a cameo from Amy Taylor of Amyl and the Sniffers. Their new stuff kicks a lot of ass. Maybe a little more in the punk zone but pretty hard rocking for sure. And punk is basically a kind of hard rock when it comes down to it anyway.


Amyl and the Sniffers - Guided By Angels.




One last thing I'd add is when I post in this thread I tend to take the title literally. In other words I post what I am listening to right then.

Not to say they're not things I like, but "the thing that I am hearing right now as I type this" is not necessarily the same as "the thing I love the most in the world.'

And lastly, as far as I know you only know me from one other board and I don't recall talking much about music there at all. Mostly I fought with you and Johnny Tuscadero. :)
Fair enough. I was really just curious.

Yes, I meant more the traditional hard rock or what would be deemed classic rock today of the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and beyond.

I assumed you posted on Sludge which caters to hair metal/hard rock and that's how you were aware of that other forum, but yes you didn't talk much about music there and when you did post videos of stuff you were listening to, it was often the opposite of what other kinds of bands people were talking about there.

Again, diversity is a good thing and I wasn't calling you out. I like all kinds of music, but I am probably not going to talk about blues, jazz, electronica, classical, folk and other kinds of music on a KISS or hair metal forum. :)

And yes, I understand the point of what you are listening to now. I like Circus Of Power too.

Have a good night.

Listened to the Heavy Temple album and loved it. I'm a sucker for witchy doom. The last track, an instrumental was amazing. Then, I saw their Spotify profile pic and it sealed the deal, I'm in.

Abysmal Grief's got to be one of the more (presumably) unintentionally funny band names I've heard for a while.

It’s the worst, blackest kind of grief, I suppose.

Love E Wiz too.
