View Full Version : Who's music taste is closest to your own?

I was thinking about this earlier today. If you had asked me a while back who had the closest music taste to me, I would probably have said Dave or Jebus because of their metal likings. Now I would probably say that Dr. Treez is the closest, because of our mutual loving of Lucky Boys Confusion, certain Goo Goo Dolls songs, and also he introduced Plowed by Sponge to me, which has been one of my favorite songs since.

So, who have you found that matches up with you, and does it differ from when you first came here?

I remember introducing Roger and ruroken to Depeche Mode, and they became independent DM freaks since. Pretty cool. I probably connected most with TTIG though. Even though are tastes in rap were extreeeeeeeeeemely different, we both love rap and could actually talk about it.

wheelchairman and I connect on lots of artists as well.

Er... Erm... I don't know. I guess maybe Betty. I know that she likes some bands that I also like such as The Dandy Warhols, The New Pornographers, Stars, Belle & Sebastian (I think?) etc. My musical taste changed a lot since the first time I came here, 4 years ago. I don't know who had similar tastes as me during that time, probably most of the people who were obsessed with The Offspring as I used to listen to mostly punk & rock music.

06-01-2006, 09:44 PM
I meant to mention them, but forgot about it.

Btw, Better than Ezra is now my favorite band; if you want I could upload some songs or something.

XYlophonetreeZ
06-01-2006, 09:52 PM
Yeah, I'd be down for checking them out I suppose. I've heard Good and Desperately Wanting and thought both were pretty alright. Especially the latter.

I just picked four almost random songs. They have a lot of other good ones, you might actually like them more, I just went with my favorites at the moment. I only included one slowish song, since the band doesn't usually put me in the mood for that kind of thing. I can put a couple more up if you want, though.

Pretty good. I normally don't like music that's that excessively happy, but I could see where these guys might be fun to listen to every once in a while. I especially liked Laid. But maybe that's just because it's called "Laid."

Also, the files were .wma so they won't go on my iTunes. But I can either try to convert them or download the same songs off Limewire.

All About Eve
06-02-2006, 12:30 AM
Come to think about it, those were pretty stupid choices for you. I definately recommend Wallflower and One More Murder. You'll probably like those a bit more, because of you liking Desperately Wanting.

No one else digs Indian film music, random pop, Kent, Jimmy Eat World and AFI like I do. :/

Betty
06-02-2006, 01:41 AM
Hmm... nobody really... just different people for different stuff.

Jacob and I had similar tastes when it came to bands like Mission of Burma, Wire, Husker Du, etc. AND the Replacements!!! And a few indie rockish bands like Spoon, etc. Then he started to lean towards the yelly/weird/heavy stuff and I started to lean towards the country/poppy/folksy/rocky stuff.

Josh and I kinda traded a few bands back and forth at one point. We like some of the same indie rock. But he leans more progressive with a lot of stuff so that's where we diverge.

Per seems to enjoy almost all of the indie rock bands I introduce him to. And I'd credit him for getting me hooked on Belle and Sebastian.

Val likes a bunch of kickass bands, the only thing I don't know is how far her musical taste extends and whether she would like a lot of the other stuff I like but hasn't heard it, or if her taste is more randomly constrained to those specific bands.

Rick and I enjoyed a lot of similar punk rock bands back in the day.

So far I haven't found anybody who quite shares my love for (a) The Weakerthans (b) Social Distortion (c) Sleater-Kinney

Oh, and Sean likes Fleetwood Mac.

Tizzalicious
06-02-2006, 02:06 AM
I guess Per. If I leave out Hanson. And some other bands. Basicly, I like most of what he likes, (some exceptions there), but he doesn't like most of what I like. That's just because he refuses to like something I like first though. Because he sucks.

I also like a lot of Michelle's uploads. So Michelle aswell.

I have a weird taste in music though, I can like anything and everything, I guess I have things in common with a lot of people.

Betty
06-02-2006, 02:18 AM
Tizz posts music rarely, but I recall liking some of it, for sure. Like Dresden Dolls, Milburn, Le Tigre...

And yeah, my ex used to dislike things that I liked, and I swear it was out of spite for my liking it.

Hmm, this is intruiging.

I know that I share bands with Never Gonna Find Me. Also, Richard and I pretty much grew up listening to Queen, and so both share an equal place in our hearts for them. I also think that I share similar musical ideas with Thibault (and we both love Muse).

That's all I know.

TheUnholyNightbringer. Duh. I guess the only (big) difference is that I also like (some) punk and, well, he doesn't. Otherwise it's very similar.

And no, it doesn't differ from when I first came here.

I mentioned these bands because I know we both like them. I also like Social Distortion, although I used to listen to them more. They were my second favourite band or something like that 2 or 3 years ago, I still like them though. I like what I've heard of the Weakerthans. I don't know what are the other bands you like. I like tons of other bands, but I either never heard anyone mention them, or I'm the only who likes these bands here.

EDIT - I share a love for Muse with both Andy and Iz, I know. And Andy and I have had discussions about aspects of music that we've generally agreed on, like he said.

06-02-2006, 02:52 PM
Little bits of everyone, I guess. I listen to a lot of different genres of music, so I wouldn't be able to list a single person, or even a couple people, that encompass the entirety of the music I listen to. I can definitely say that Nieh, Thibault, and Adriann are 3 people that would be included in the list, though

Institute is a Gavin Rossdale's (Bush's frontman and Gwen Stefani's husband) new band. They made a really good album.

06-02-2006, 10:57 PM
My friends hate my music... like they'd want to listen to what I'm playing in my headphones, then they would just turn away in disgust. That's pretty awesome. As far as anyone on the board though, I shared most of my music with Psycho, but she died or something, who knows. I've read about that_guy (or however the fuck it's spelled) likes Rise Against and Strike Anywhere, 2 of my favorite bands. Some people also like alkaline trio.
I've never heard of people liking Sunny Day Real Estate, Jeremy Enigk (solo artist), or Tool.
I'm pretty sure a lot of people like SOAD.

That_Guy91
06-03-2006, 05:32 AM
^More Strike Anywhere than Rise Against, though. I haven't heard enough Rise Against to say i'm a fan.


Anyway, i'd say i'm somewhere between Jesse and Shelby, with some metallish stuff thrown in. Oh, and I recently started listening to Public Enemy, too.

Hmm, Betty yes. I had figured she had just figured out my taste in music and was selecting songs that way.

Justin and I seem to like the same folk music.

Tizz and I like a lot of the same music. And she's full of shit, I like a lot of bands she introduced me to. Le Tigre, Vive la Fete, James Blunt, Gavin Degraw. I just don't like her crappy taste in music (Hanson etc.)

I like a lot of what Johnny uploads. But he says I like "white people's rap".

Andy has definitely uploaded a lot of good things in the past.

Killer Queen also has good taste.

Sim and teh smashing pumpkins! Same goes for Sam. So many s's and m's.

Gulsah & I definitely share quite a few things on the musical area. everything's she's uploaded was fantastic. I seem to remember she liked what I uploaded too. & then there's our shared gypsy- & classical love. & a whole lot of it too. you can't possibly beat that. so if I'd have to mention one person, it'd be Gulsah.

I remember when 1565 was on the radio I was in love with her musical taste. whatever she put on, me liked. there are a couple of things Per & I both love greatly. I don't think it's enough to actually truly have something in common. just mostly/generally folk & the Smashing Pumpkins.

AAE, I think you recommended me a whole list of songs I absolutely LOVED. Lucky Boys Confusion, Sponge, etcetera, all comes from you, right? (or did it come from XY? or both? so confused!)

Ricky's uploaded a lot I liked loadsloadsloads. & then there's the whole Depeche Mode love going on.

Tizz... you like Hanson? I have their thing as my avatar just as a joke. but I actually do really like their newer music. I don't care for the pre-puberty stuff, but "underneath" and even "this time around" were strong albums. I saw them in concert last november ;) I just think it's cool when I find people who actually like them, haha.

I know I've met people before with pretty much the same taste in music as I, but I forget who it was. I'm going to guess that it was either or4ng3 or Cokeaholic.

Here's some bands I like, someone prove me right or wrong

Streetlight Manifesto
Big D and The Kids Table
Lagwagon
Nofx
The Suicide Machines
Millencolin
Aquabats
Bouncing Souls
Vandals - mostly just Hitler Bad Vandals Good
AFI - mostly just the songs on the nitro compilation

I like a weird mix of Ska and Pop-punk.
