    Oooooooooohhhhh... quite a few there. No female ones for me of course. I'm a grunge and me likes my music that way!

    Linkin Park
    Offspring
    Tenacious D - Meh
    Greenday
    Blink 182
    BUSTED

    No rappers for me :thumbsdow: Hate em...

    Also add your fave songs by those bands if you really want.

    Linkin Park - Numb, Faint
    Offspring - Hit that
    Tenacious D - Tribute
    Greenday - Waiting
    Blink 182 - Feeling This
    BUSTED - Air Hostess and Sleeping With The Light On

    I just hope my Dad won't reply to this thread cos he'll say Elvis and Frank Sinatra and all that Grandad's rubbish. Soz if I offended anyone here... :rolleyes:

    BUSTED will win Taz. Please don't tell me your an Elvis fan? I'm not a hardcore fan I just like em cos my Auntie bought us tickets to a concert in March. I'm a hardcore Linkin Park fan. My Dad says they're rubbish cos apparently all they do is scream. Whatever.

    As I said Piero, only doing it to please my Auntie. Mostly into Rock and New Metal music. Need to get some Metallica CDs too.

    EDIT - A Little Less Conversation? *shudders* I get enough of Elvis from my Dad and Nan... Lemme see. What about... Offspring - Hit that vs Elvis? The blue dude from the Hit That video is the kewlest character I have ever seen! Well, all except Knuckles from Sonic;)

    Pink Floyd (All ready stated but amazing)
    Rage Against The Machine
    The Strokes
    The Foo Fighters
    Underworld
    Kings Of Leon
    The Doors

    Loads more but aboves a good mix of different styles of old and new :smashin:

    I would get the Dark Side Of The Moon album first and if you like it they have many more albums available.

    Might take a good few listens before you get into the floyd vibe, very different to what your currently listening to :smashin:

    If you're into punk mate, you can't miss out 'The Clash'.

    Sublime music. They virtually invented punk (I know the Ramones and Pistols were around before, but they didn't contribute as much and bring it to as wide an audience)

    And I used to really like the following but haven't really listened to them for a while now:

    Pet Shop Boys - Early Stuff
    Erasure
    Queen

    Cheers, Lee

    I'm quite suprised that Linkin Park, Blink 182 and Busted have been labelled as 'grunge' in this list!

    Whatever happened to Nirvana, Mudhoney, Fudge Tunnel, Lizard, Hole, L7 etc?

    There's not a bit of grunge in your list, as far as I can tell. But then I guess every other American band is being labelled 'punk' at the moment...

    Agree with Rhoamish, you're listening to punk that's been spoon-fed to you.

    Look out for:
    The Clash
    The Ramones
    Crackout
    Guns 'n' Roses
    The Get Up Kids

    and anything that The Offspring have done since Smash is mediocre at best.

    We could all go on about music though. There's plenty of threads about it!

    For those who don't stray that far usually, there's an identical thread down in General Chat as well. Combine the 2 and 'cube will be onto something! and probably skinter.

    For me, Deep Purple.

    More than 100m albums sold, 30 years of history.

    And - shock horror - they can play their own instruments....

    Led Zep run a close second.

    More 'modern' bands that find favour with me include Radiohead, Coldplay (no, really !).

    Offspring? I love em! BUSTED, I explained that! Don't like em anymore, Blink 182 and Linkin Park have been classified has Rock which IS Grunge. System of A Down, Foo Fighters, Guns n Roses and Nirvana are a few of what I'm gonna get. Don't forget Limp Bizkit!

    Blink 182 and Linkin Park are categorically NOT grunge!

    Grunge is the entirely different sound from the early 90's.

    Grunge bands include (as mentioned above):
    Nirvana
    Soundgarden
    Smashing Pumpkins

    the closest you might find today is Audioslave (Chris Cornell who sings was the singer for Soundgarden).

    Grunge is dead. There is no grunge being made anymore. Linkin Park are nu-metal (mainstream pop rubbish), and Busted are just pop music. Not a decent rock track between them.

    But:

    Radiohead
    Sevendust
    Life Of Agony
    Led Zeppelin
    Raging Speedhorn
    Will Haven
    Dillinger Escape Plan
    Amen
    Vision Of Disorder
    Rage Against The Machine
    Pearl Jam
    Rival Schools
    Keith Caputo
    Brendan Benson
    Anyone
    Sikth
    At The Drive-in
    BRMC
    Muse
    Nostromo

    Think that covers my bands... Check them out. They **** on Linkin Park and all that other toss.

    Grunge ??

    "touch me Im sick" thats grunge.

    Apply that like a template to any band, if the shoe fits then its grunge.

    I've avioded posting here as I've got a 14 year old brother myself (which is how old I_like_it_cube is, IIRC) so I know how hard it is to try and let them know you know more about music than them ;) TBH, you've pretty much covered all the bands you like cube, most of the stuff here will take time and effort to get into, and your mates probably won't like it, but in the end you'll get a hell of a lot more enjoyment out of Rival Schools' "United by Fate" than you will out of The Offspring's "Conspiracy of One" - most of these chaps know what they're on about and, unfortunatly, have a few years on you (and me ;) )

    Ahh! Superfuzz Bigmuff! One of my most treasured EPs.

    Sonic Youth got lumped in with Grunge for a while, but I didn't entirely understand why. I guess Dirty is grungy in places, as is Goo, but most of their stuff isn't.

    Lots of bands got lumped as grunge, in the same way as punk (the Police were considered to be punk at one time :eek: ).

    At the risk of a flaming :hiya: Pearl Jam do not fit into the grunge category, they are more manufactured supergroup and dont fit with the grunge philosophy..................that was Kurt Cobains angle and I have to agree with his conclusion.

    For the records, I'm 15 NOT 14. 16 in like 7 months... :( Anyway, I'll try out Sonic Youth but I'd rather stick to some bands that I have in mind atm. I'll also try out Puddle of Mudd.
