Off-Topic: Music

With Paxson Jackson's pimping of Pavement, I want to know more about the music taste of the folks around here.  Part of this is selfish -- with iTunes giving :30 second clips of just about every song without buying, I try and listen to most bands that might interest me.  But I also want to know just how diverse and whacky we Sox Rooters are.

So here are my random thoughts on my personal enjoyments and such -- feel free to criticize, poke fun at or add your own.

-The Strokes are without a doubt the best band in the history of the world.  Ever.

-I'm excited to see Albert Hammond Jr. perform at the Metro June 8th.

-I'm not an avid concert-goer, but Flogging Molly was the best concert I've ever attended.

-I'm embarrassed to say that I went through the college kid faze (in high school, actually) of liking those 'college' bands -- I'm looking at you, Dave Matthews Band.  I'm proud to say that I never hopped on OAR's bandwagon, however.

-The indie/alt. rock is what I've fallen in love with lately.  That includes The Killers, Kaiser Chiefs, Murder by Death, Neutral Milk Hotel (to a lesser extent) and most recently, the Arctic Monkeys.  I'm always looking to listen to new bands in this category, so...?

-I strongly dislike the "whiny teenager" emo-ish music.  

-I'm not proud to say that I never got into the Pixies.  I respect the hell out of them for paving the way for so many of the rock bands today, but I can't say I'm a huge fan.

-I'm not the biggest fan of the White Stripes, either, but I'm looking forward to their upcoming CD.  Icky Thump rocks.
