@Bizaster Just to confuse things further, a grunge playlist popped up on my recommended list on Spotify earlier - probably after I'd listened to a couple of 90s rock playlists or 'liked' some Nirvana or something - and on that list was Blind Melon and Smashing Pumpkins! I've never heard of either of them described as grunge before. If distorted guitars are a defining feature of grunge I'd say that pretty much rules out Blind Melon. Could maybe argue that Siamese Dream era Smashing Pumpkins were close(ish) to grunge, but still not a band I'd associate with the genre.

@dmcc0 yeah, it’s interesting seeing what people think is grunge/what is not. I wouldn’t say that Smashing Pumpkins are primarily grunge, but some of their songs - like Bullet With Butterfly Wings and Cherub Rock - had some grunge elements.

Also, Blind Melon? I’m surprised they were on that playlist! Maybe it’s because the lead singer hung out with Chris Cornell a lot, and they were in the same era? That’s really interesting tbh.

Hey everyone! Hope you’re all doing well. I have a new question for today!

Today’s question is:
What is your FAVORITE ALBUM and what is your FAVORITE TRACK FROM IT?

If you can’t decide, you can list more than one!

My personal choice would be Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy. It’s my personal favorite because it was one of the only Led Zeppelin albums to feature completely original content and musical styles, and I wish they did more like it. My favorite track from it is “Over the Hills and Far Away”!

Some albums that are close behind for me are:

  • Led Zeppelin II by Led Zeppelin, “Whole Lotta Love”
  • In Utero by Nirvana, “Heart-Shaped Box”
  • Badmotorfinger by Soundgarden, “Jesus Christ Pose”

With something like music it’s almost impossible to have a single favourite anything, it jumps all over the place depending on my moods.

Maybe the below but I will probably change my mind in a hour to 5 completely different albums;
London Calling By The Clash
Love, Ire & Song By Frank Turner
Rage Against the Machine By Rage Against the Machine
Somewhere in the Between By Streetlight Manifesto
Mutter By Rammstein

As others said, it's a tough one to pin down. But if I was really pushed I'd probably go with Sigur Rós - Ágætis byrjun. Then go with Hjartað hamast (bamm bamm bamm) as my favourite track, and even more specifically the bit towards the end where the strings fade and you're just consumed by noise while the paino plays the outro

Some Aussie musics: Pond, TFS, Genesis Owusu

@jump I’ve actually just started listening to RATM recently, and I love them. Their debut album is great, I think I’d give it a 9/10.

We’re getting interesting answers here! I haven’t heard of a lot of these bands and artists. I might not ask a question today, I want to see more answers come in.

@Bizaster My favorite album is a tough call, but I really like "Is This It" by The Strokes. (I've only listened to a couple of their albums though. lol) Mainly because I have a lot of nostalgia for it (my dad is a HUGE music buff) and all the songs are just chill, at least in terms of their compositions. My favorite track is also a tough one - I like all of them but I guess I'll say it's "Someday."

God I wish I had a more in depth answer to give. I’m more into video game soundtracks but does Queen count? If it does I’m a fan of Queen. My favourite song... it’s quite generic. Bohemian Rhapsody from A Night at the Opera.

@TheJGG don’t feel bad, Bohemian Rhapsody is a masterpiece. I hate when people make others feel bad for liking popular songs.

Blah, it should be 10/10! ;p

They are great, the others albums are really good too. The Battles Of Los Angeles in particular is really good, it’s just filled with hooks.

It’s annoying they canned their reunion last year. I had planned to turn the chance to see them again into a holiday in Paris for a few days and then see them at a festival they were playing was just outside the city.

Another Mutsuhiko Izumi song from DrumMania V3, MODEL FT2 (MODEL FAIRY TALE 2) but this is Miracle version (Extra Hard version)

The title and video looks cute but the drum chart looks extremely insane hard.

This is a rather widely-defined topic!

Music means a lot to me, especially of the jazz/hip-hop/punk/post-punk/post-hardcore/noise/noise rock/dub/idm/d&b/techno/soul/funk genres.

Dunno where to start, so here's a list of some of my fave 80s rock bands:

Big Black
Sonic Youth
Dinosaur Junior
My Bloody Valentine
World Domination Enterprises
Husker Du
Fugazi
Minor Threat
Rites of Spring

So definitely more on the noise rock (post-)hardcore tip

@jump I’ve heard The Battle of Los Angeles is great, I’m thinking I’ll listen to that one next. Also yeah, it would be awesome to see them in concert.
