I'm just looking to survey the favourite Bands of some of the other users of a.net, just to get to know you guys better and to get a few more ideas to enlarge my (and yours) media libraries  Smile

Leave some info on your favourite bands, singers, etc, or leave a link to their official site. Wink

My Favourite Band is Chicago! Many of you older users will probably know about them. They started in 1967 and are still releasing albums, though less than before; they have released over 30 albums in 40 years! They are a very good band playing a variety of music. Mostly Rock Ballads, Jazz and some random other stuff! Most of their music incorporates a small yet powerful horn section.

Best songs:
Feelin' Stonger Every Day
25 or 6 to 4
Questions 67 & 68
Make Me Smile
Dialogue (Parts 1 & 2)
Old Days

Hey WestJet: Forgive the self-gratuity, but my band has an indy CD out and the first tune has been compared to Chicago in the early days:

I mainly like Symphonic/Goth metal music at the moment, don't knock it till you have tried it, but depending on my mood I will go from that, to opera or classical music.

After Forever
Chris de Burgh
Iron Maiden
Lacuna Coil
Leaves Eyes
Pink Floyd
Sins of Thy Beloved
Sonata Arctica
Theatre of Tragedy
Trail of Tears
Within Temptation

Afraid I don't have al of the websites to hand currently as I'm not on my own laptop. I can suggest using YouTube to search for examples of the bands music, most of it seems to have escaped the recent binge of pulls recently.

Green Day
Blink 182
Bowling for Soup
Iron Maiden
My Chemical Romance
Tenacious D
The Who

Quite a mix, although my music library is pretty varied too. I've got Dido, Die Toten Hosen, Die Ärtze, Juli, Hawthorne Heights. I'll listen to pretty much anything, but I hate rap, r'n'b, classical and jazz.

Edit: Oh, and obviously my own  Silly *Warning: selfpug alert  Silly* My Band....Yeah, It's a shameful selfplug!!

Both released albums at the end of last month. Have you got them yet?  Smile
Tristania's Illumination sound better each time I hear it. I'm really starting to like it.
Therion's Gothic Kaballah on the other hand seems rather dull. The very american female voice doesn't help either... I prefer listening to Sirius B and Lemuria...
