@JamieO:
The Pixies always bring a smile to my face. When I was a kid my cousins always played country music around me (which I never liked that much) and the Pixies were the first band to really get me interested in music. They were unlike anything I had heard until then.

@The_Fox Cool man, a nipper being converted by The Pixies, is a well decent pathway to the wonders of rock! The Pixies sound spectacular to me, even if they were not always consitently brilliant, they still border on indie genius at times, I still think they have a unique sound twenty years on. I was late to any Pixies appreciation mind you, I didn't actually listen to them much when they were first out. It is always sweet to catch a band after they have split up and gone other ways, although the Pixies have reformed for quite a few gigs recently (festivals etc). It would have been amazing to see them live first time around. Ah well.
This is an obvious choice, but my favourite use of a Pixies song in a mainstream setting, is Where Is My Mind? in the movie 'Fight Club'.
I did not post the Fight Club clips video, because it was graphic and contained spoilers for people who have not seen the film. You can still hear the tune in this You Tube users 'li'l white doggy' video

@cheetahman91 This thread is brilliant, mate. As @StarBoy91 says "I'm also a music fanatic besides just a video game fan", it has brought together lots of different music genres.

I hope this doesn't sound too cheeky, but would it be alright with you if I kind of pinch your idea and open a separate thread, which asks Nintendo Life users specifically about my favourite music genre (punk and alternative rock)?

I don't want it to seem like I am ripping you off, but I am interested in finding out which other users share my particular taste for music and to build up a board of bands/ songs which are specifically in my favourite genre. Cheers.

I don't care. This is mainly just for posting random music anyways. That sounds like a great idea having a thread that caters to a specific music genre. Go right ahead. I'm sure people won't forget about this thread anyways.

Great topic, but wow, my taste in music is quite different to everybody else's, see how you like this (if you're put off at first, listen to it to at least half way!):

I can't help but love this one:

There hasn't been enough Zep in this thread...

@cheetahman91 Thanks mate, that is sound of you. I have acknowledged that it was taken from your idea and I linked back to this thread, too. Punk and altenative rock is such an acquired taste in music, it will be a quiet thread anyway.

I will start to post my favourite video games tracks on your thread too. For example, below is my favourite of all the Final Fight tracks. Nice one.

P.S. @The_Fox Ha, ha Black Flag's TV Party completely cracks me up, another great choice!

For some reason, despite never posting in this thread before, I feel possessed to post this...

Quite possibly my favorite VG song ever remixed to near mind-blowing levels.

listens to it 400 times in a row and then explodes...again

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.

Who doesn't love Bob Marley? May want to turn off the annotations on this one.

Not a big country fan, but Johnny Cash is a rare exception:

Nice! I've always liked Tom Waits booze-infused voice.

This song has been stuck in my head recently

It's an absolute crime that more people haven't heard of Five For Fighting (He's my favourite artist). Slice is one of his songs off his new Album. Here's soem more of his stuff. This is one of his more stylized music videos.

EDIT: Damm it, doesn't work here. Double click the video to load up the youtube page
