The Offspring, is not my fav, but it was one of the first bands I ever listened when I was 8-9 years old, and today I still like them, is not my fav, but is the one I have been listening for a long time...
Green Day has been my favorite band for as long as I can remember, My mom used to listen to them all the time so it gradually passed onto me. Boulevard of broken dreams is still one of my favorite songs. In fact, I remember knowing all the words to it when I was just six xD Unfortunately I haven't been to any of their concerts, although I really wish I could.
I think they are better off without the other guy I guess. Not a huge fan of Black Dog. Double Figure is by far Plaid's best album love just about everything they got really. My favorite albums besides Double Figure is Not For Threes and their newest Scintilli.. tho Spokes and Restproof Clockwork is really good as well as Parts in the Post is AMAZING. I have both their Trainers as well as P-Brane. lol I love them so much. Besides Double Figure(which has a LOT of bomb ass tracks) the rest of the albums have a few REALLY good tracks while the rest are very ambient and emotional. Like you can't just pick it up and listen to it at any time and enjoy it like the rest...though it depends on the album like Parts in the Post has a lot of good stuff on it(both cds).
I was going to write HIM and Metallica, but then I realized I actually have listened and liked Madonna since I was just a little kid. I can't tell how many years I've liked Madonna and her music, but anyways... If we forget Madonna, then it would HIM and Metallica. I started to listen to 'em when I was 10, I guess... O.o Few years later came Slipknot and Nirvana. So, I've listened these band over 12-15 years. (And Madonna maybe 18-20 years)
Fates Warning I liked these guys since their album "Parallels". Funny thing is that at first I had given that cd away for a Vinnie Vincent Invasion cd. I look forward to their new album coming out this year....Fates Warning that is not Vinnie Vincent Invasion, it's been years since their last album. I first heard of them in the 12th grade but I really took to them in college. It's been 22 years I think.
Probably Rammstein as I've been listening since mid high school. I also had all there studio albums pre "Liebe ist fur alle da" but some ass took it upon themselves to steal them at a party. I've also purchased all their DVDs which are thankfully safe and sound.
Oh, wait. I stand corrected since I've been listening to Eagle-Eye Cherry since "Save Tonight" was a hit in the 90's. I think that's like 12 year if the release of "Desireless" listed on Last.FM is correct (2001) though I feel that's wrong since my collection has it listed as 1998. It's kind of funny that my brother purchased the CD because of that one song but hated the rest of it so it was given to me. I've since purchased "Living in the Present Future" and "Sub Rosa" but have felt like there's something lacking aside from a few tracks.
That would be Rob Zombie/White Zombie. I first heard the songs Dragula and Grease Paint And Monkey Brains in the PS1 game Twisted Metal 4, when I would have been 6 or 7. Dragula is the first song I remember really being into and I would stick the game into a CD player to listen to it. It was what got me into metal music too. And now 12 or 13 years later, Zombie's not one of my top favourite artists or bands, but I'm still a big fan and still absolutely love Dragula. I've got all his solo albums and most of his albums with White Zombie, but still haven't seen him live, as he hasn't come to the UK for over a decade or so until a couple of years ago. Couldn't go to the last couple of shows, but I do intend to see him soon.
Also, in the same game is where I first heard Chaos by Skold, whom I am now a big fan of, but I only re-discovered him a couple of years ago.
That's about the only music I remember liking when I was little, as my parents pretty much weren't into listening to music other than the radio, so they didn't influence my music tastes.
Pink Floyd, I was completely blown away by them when I first actually "listened" to them at 12 years old (although I had of course heard some of their songs even before that). Now I'm 20, and I still do love them. Before discovering them I wasn't interested in music at all. Since then, music has become my main preoccupation in life
