    My GOD, how did I miss this before, Pink Floyd's first album was amazing, as was the single "Arnold Layne", this lead me into looking at Syd Barrett's post Floyd solo work, was absolute genius as well.

    It makes me wonder what Pink Floyd would have become had Syd not gone crazy (I'm not a big fan of Pink Floyd other than a few songs).

    "Octopus" may seriously be one of the best songs I have ever heard.

    For me, my brother got me into The Marshall Tucker Band over Crimmus, and my uncle recently got me listening to The Kinks and some solo stuff by their lead singer. Ray something or another, can't recall.

    Oh, and I've been listening to Poison's greatest hits a bunch. Love it.

    I've always dug Pink Floyd's stuff. "Ummagumma" in particular is one of my non-Dark Side favorites.

    I recently picked up a Pixies album that currently is playing nonstop. Now I'm going to the library looking for some more.

    Blink 182, Neverending White Lights, Aphex Twin, Daz Dillinger, Kurrupt and The Killers.

    Is it wrong that I didn't like Dark Side of the Moon?

    EDIT: Also Kayne West and Nas.

    This is basically what I do with music. A few years back it was AC/DC, but only Bon Scott AC/DC, not Brian Johnson AC/DC. Then it was Iron Maiden. This year I think I gotta see if I like Judas Priest. I probably will.

    Some of Metallica's songs, but not all.

    I also like some of Rammstein's songs, but I've actually liked them for a little while.

    Just today my boss turned me on to Yello - One Second

    You know it if you've seen Ferris Beullers day off..... Ooooohhh Yeah. Actually titled - Oh Yeah... Anyhow, it's a great 80's album that really manages to (most of the time) avoid the usual electronic standard ho hum of most of the 80's and much of the album could actually be mistaken for an early 90's record. Plus, it's got a lot of kick ass tribal beats throughout and some great use of effects. It's not chill but it's not get up and break something music either. It's just pure awesome.
