I don't see the point in lambasting someone else because of his or her musical preferences. There's times when a little teasing is okay, but other times... It's like walking up to a person and telling him he's worthless as a human being because he's enjoying Brand A's chocolate bar, when Brand B's chocolate bar is clearly so superior.

It's just music.

Favorites...but certainly not "the best," if you want me to be objective about this (which I can't do).

1) The Beatles
2) The Velvet Underground
3) U2
4) Talking Heads
5) Radiohead
6) Brian Eno
7) Bruce Springsteen (& The E Street Band)
8) Depeche Mode
9) The Cure
10) Super Furry Animals

We'll see how the new Hold Steady album works out in October. That has the potential to shake things up a bit. Also, Sleater-Kinney just missed this list, though I'm sure the recent break-up has probably made me more sympathetic to their being constantly overlooked.

I can't wait to post this and then, fifteen minutes later, remember about, like, six other artists/bands who I think are more deserving of a spot in my top ten. C'est la vie, I guess.

If it is an inside joke...people need to bear in mind that inside jokes of such a nature are not going to come across as just fun and games to the general public that reads them here.

You both have shit taste, and it shows. Music has been around for more than 10 years.

Spread your wings and fly away - Queen
your ignorance for the most basic of things, such as thread titles and what they mean, is so obvious i'm not sure why i'm responding to this.

i know you're trying to get a rise, congrats. like your taste in music, it's very much yesterday.

my favourite bands of all time are listed. i couldn't take any of them out for other acts that i'm currently en7oying such as:

a) loscil
b) massive attack
c) the most serene republic
d) duo 505
e) manitoba / caribou (which, in hindsight, should definitely have made my original list)

there are more. mainly classical and electronic. so i don't like queen, hendrix and all the other stuff that came out at that time, big deal.

my list reflects what my favourites are... which is kind of funny. cause isn't that what this thread was about?

oooh a brian eno fan.

as huge as he's been for u2 over the years, i'm surprised there aren't more fans of his on this board.

i love music for airports...

Brau, you have shown an unbelievable amount of arrogance in presuming the authority to tell people how 'shit' their taste in music is. Taste in music is a completely subjective thing and can't be qualified in any way. To think you know otherwise is arrogant, obnoxious, and snobbish. Get off your soapbox.

hmmm I think he was trying to say that Zoomy usually takes the authority and insults people for their taste..usually for being commercial/mainstream or sucky .. and for someone who does that.... his [Zoomy's] list wasn't exactly anything new or unheard of.

Regardless I think criticising people's taste is just lame & pointless,...though I've probably done it myself without noticing...with things like Bon Jovi, and Coldplay I suppose



but yeah if anyone has music taste that's random and "crappy" to others,...then it's probably me
but fuck it, I love it
that's what counts!

1. The Beatles
2. U2
3. R.E.M.
4. Radiohead
5. Crowded House
6. The Rolling Stones
7. The Beach Boys
8. Björk
9. Dire Straits
10. Billy Joel

I could have put John Lennon as a solo artist on it too, but that would have been unfair since he is already represented.
