I was a huge Jimmy Eat World fan when they were still small. I still like them a lot, but I really hate how over-played they were on the radio. Too much of anything can be bad.

Weezer is one of my favorite bands. While they still have that 'nerd rock' image going, they really do make some fantastic music. They make some extremely solid albums.

I absolutely love Cake's last 2 albums (especially the most recent effort). It's odd because most people prefer the first 2. I'm eagerly awaiting the new one that's supposed to be out this year.

Re: Do You Like?

1. Apollo Four Fourty Never heard of them.
2. Daryal Hall & John Oates Yeah, I do like some of their songs. .
3. Incubus Not really into them-"Drive" got played to death.
4. The Offsspring I liked some of their songs from the late 90s-"Pretty Fly For A White Guy" and "Why Don't You Get A Job?" are the big two that come to mind right now.
5. Simply Red I've only heard a couple of their songs, but I like them.
6. Dc Talk Heard of them, just never heard anything by them, so I can't say.
7. E.L.O. Yep, like some of their songs, too.
8. Jimmy Eat World I've only heard their song "The Middle", and I personally hate that song (heh, talk about overplayed songs...).
9. Weezer Yeah, I like what I've heard by them (which isn't much-like, three or four songs).
10. Collective Soul Yes. Again, haven't heard much here, either, but I do like the songs I have heard. The lead singer's got an interesting voice.
11. Live Yeah (s "The Dolphin's Cry"). Not too fond of the last song I heard by them, "Heaven" (again, a victim of overplay), but I do like some of their other songs.
12. Ben Folds Only heard two songs of theirs, but again, liked those songs.
13. Guster Only heard "Amsterdam". It was okay.
14. Vertical Horizon Oh, wow...yeah, they weren't bad. I liked that "Best I Ever Had" song that came out a couple years back.
15. Jamouriqiou Love "Virtual Insanity" (and is it just me or can anyone else totally see Stevie Wonder doing that song?). I've also heard "Canned Heat"-that one was okay.
16. Cake Another group I've only heard a couple of songs by, but again, do like the songs-I find them to be quite amusing.
17. Lenny Kravtiz Not all that into his stuff overall. I do like "Are You Gonna Go My Way?", and "Again" had a good chorus.
18. 311 Only heard one song by them, and I can't even remember exactly how that song goes, so...can't really say.
19. Bon Jovi Yeah, they're not bad. They've got some good stuff. I was hugely into them when I was, like, 3, 4 years old, and ever since my sister got into their music, I've gotten the chance to hear a lot more of their stuff, and, yeah, I don't mind them. .
20. The Cars Yes, they've got some good songs, too.
21. Our Lady Peace Only heard one song by them. It was okay.
22. Jim Brickman Didn't he do that one song with that girl called "The Simple Things"? That song was kinda nice.
23. New Order Can't get into their music much-I prefer Joy Division's musical style more, personally. But a couple of their songs are okay.

Incubus I'd like to know more of--I've only heard a bit of what they play on the radio and I really don't like it but I might like some of their other stuff.

Simply Red are, um, excuse the pun, simply horrible in my opinion. I can't stand them.

Weezer are pretty good--I borrowed my brother's copy of the Blue Album and I liked it although it's not something I'd go buy.

Live are very good...all I've heard by them are Lightning Crashes and Heaven--the latter was very overplayed, but Lightning Crashes is still one of my favourite songs.

Ben Folds is good as well--I like what I've heard from him quite a bit.

Really the only Vertical Horizon song I like is Give You Back, but that might be for more sentimental purposes than its caliber as a song. I think it's very good, though.

311, aigh. Um, I haven't heard much by them, but their terrible cover of Lovesong by the Cure is enough to put me off them for good.

The Cars I like a lot. I've only heard the songs that get played on the radio but I really like them. I'm really interested in hearing more of them.

I haven't heard anything by New Order but I would really like to--I like Joy Division except I'm not much for Ian Curtis's voice.

Hello!

THE CARS are an amamzing band ( You're All I Got Tonight , Let the Good Times Roll, Just What I Needed...I have loved them for years. They a re a classic that will never go out of style.

LIVE is my 2nd favorite band. I rarely go a day w/o listening to a Live song. I have a Live CD in my car a t all times.

INCUBUS I don't know much about. Some of their stuff sounds a little depressing. My mind could change though.

VERTICAL HORIZON a little bland to me.

OFFSPRING from what I know I like.

DARYL HALL and JOHN OATES extremely talented song writers but it is just noy my type of music.

LENNY KRAVITZ-Got to be in the mood. Love Mr. Cab Driver and Let Love Rule. I think he can be provacative.

BON JOVI-One or two songs I like but they tend to be a little too poppish for me.


Great topic.

1. Apollo Four Fourty -- i only knew that one song. the don't stop the rock thing, unless that wasn't them. but i hated it.

2. Daryal Hall & John Oates -- not a fan.

3. Incubus -- can tolerate them if i hear them once in a while, liked them before 'pardon me' got huge, and the overplaying killed them for me.

4. The Offsspring -- if someone else sang 'one fine day' (off the conspiracy of one album), then that would be good. but other than that, i have no use for them.

5. Simply Red -- never heard of them

6. Dc Talk -- never heard of them

7. E.L.O. -- not a fan at all

8. Jimmy Eat World -- alright on occasion

9. Weezer -- somewhat like

10. Collective Soul -- really good in that horrible, bland, late half of the 90s commecial rock sort of way. and i mean that in the best way possible.

11. Live -- one of my favorite bands. see? i put them in bold...

12. Ben Folds -- better as ben folds five

13. Guster -- only good on 'lost and gone forever', i'd like to check them out sometime live, but i'm not going to go out of my way, so unless they come back to the pioneer valley (which isn't too far from boston, people) i'll probably never see them, but i don't like the newest album, so i don't care too much.

14. Vertical Horizon -- hate them. i own a copy of 'everything you want' and remember buying it, and don't want to part with it, but i never listen to it and recognize it as over-produced crap.

15. Jamouriqiou -- was never a fan.

16. Cake -- i like.

17. Lenny Kravtiz -- pisses me off

18. 311 -- sometimes i like them

19. Bon Jovi -- hate with a passion.

20. The Cars -- indifferent.

21. Our Lady Peace -- older stuff, yes. post-that-album-wth-the-weird-robot-like-thing-on-the-cover, no.

22. Jim Brickman -- never heard of.

23. New Order -- more or less indifferent.

I am not big on punk rock though.
alkaline trio-I only know "Armageondan," and I think it rocks!
