(Title taken from a Rheostatics' song)
I was sitting here watching the Colbert Report today, and he had REM as a guest.
That's one band I've always really liked, even though I haven't bought many of their albums.
This got me to thinking of some other bands that I really like and know, and although I don't have many (or any) of their albums, here are still some of my "other favorites".
The list would be as follows :
Neil Young - A legendary Canadian singer whose lyrics are like no other.
U2 - One of the world's biggest bands, I had the pleasure of seeing these guys play in Calgary years ago.
The Dead Kennedys - A classic punk band. It's interesting to think what would have happened if Jello Biafra actually won his political seat....
Nirvana - They have too many good songs to list.
The Pixies - Another band whose reunion tour was too short.
Rush - Finally making another appearance after 25 years here in Winnipeg. They were mad that their last show only attracted 6000 people, and vowed to never return. On second thought - do we want them here?!?
The Sex Pistols - A must have for any "mad at your parents & I wanna be a rebel" teenager.
Tom Petty - Classic easy listening American rocker
This post really made my day. The more I think about music, the happier I get. Who are some of your "other favorites"?
