In another thread, I made it clear that I really enjoy Texas Country, but that doesn't mean that I enjoy other music so this is what I've been listening to lately...
I've been reconnecting with some music from my raising Cain days like Nine Inch Nails, AC/DC, Rollins Band, Stone Temple Pilots, Beastie Boys, SRV, Drowning Pool, White Zombie etc.
I know they've been around but I also discovered some Skunk Anansie.
Feel free to contribute to this musical discourse.

I spent the evening listening to music from my youth from the Sixties on public TV. I won't bore you with a list of my favorite music from then. This is a music list that I have evolved over time for listening to at work and at home. It is not in any particular order and is by no means inclusive. I am sad to say that my wife shares very little of my taste in music.
Working for a Nuclear Free City
Broken Social Scene
Yo la Tengo
Margot and the Nuclear So and So's
Leaves that are Green
Iron & Wine
Barber's Adaggio for Strings (classical piece)
Amaan Ali Khan
Maneesh De Moor
Jimmy Dale Gilmore
Bombay Dub Orchestra
Explosions in the Sky
The Feeling Begins
The sound track for the movie "Little Buddha" by Ryuichi Sakamoto
R Carlos Nakai
Juan Luis Guerra
Music from the movie "Philadelphia", especially "Streets of Philadelphia" by Bruce Springsteen
I've been listening to The Violent Femmes a LOT lately. Even though Gordon Gano's vocals can seem strange to most, I just haven't been able to get over how immediately good the band was. The debut album has to be on the top ten list of debut albums from ANY band in the history of music. Just incredibly good.
Oh.. and The Violent Femmes? The Violent Femmes, they bring all their equipment on the bus. And you can not f *ck with the Violent Femmes. You cannot f*ck with this band!
I have eclectic tastes (or maybe bi-polar is more apt). I literally will go from Reckless Kelly straight to Keisha or Katy Perry (nom nom), back to Johnny Cash and Junior Brown, to Crue, back to Aldean or Miranda, then off to Steve Miller, over to SOAD or RATM or maybe a little Avenged Sevenfold, then some cool down with a little Ronnie Milsap and Jerry Reed. Whew, wore me out just thinking about it. You never know what the next song will be when the iPhone is on shuffle.
My iPod is set up just like yours. Have you been hacking my iTunes?
Gave you a +1 for Reckless Kelly
Not one RUSH fan in the bunch. I'm depressed.
Left and rights of passage
Black and whites of youth
Who can face the knowledge
That the truth is not the truth?
The world weighs on my shoulders
But what am I to do?
You sometimes drive me crazy
But I worry about you
I know it makes no difference
To what you're going through
But I see the tip of the iceberg
And I worry about you

Please don't worry about me. I'll be all better tomorrow.
Getty Lee is awesome man. So is Neal Perth. Almost got to see them in 2010.
I'm your huckleberry. It would take me too long to list every artist in my itunes. Rush, VH, Leppard, Dio, Cheap Trick, Crue...all staples of my youth.
Many a night at boxcars in Katy jamming to this stuff.
Am I to assume that boxcars is a bar or music venue? I am not very familiar with the Houston area.
They are going to be at the AA Center in Dallas in November. I'm taking my 15 yr old daughter to expose her to a real band with real lyrics and that gives a shit about their craft.
Conform or be cast out.
Saw them two summers back. They still rock
Well, one could call it both. Boxcars was nothing more than some abandoned box cars on some long unused tracks out in the middle of nothing that was a gathering spot for us rural young uns. Thats back when Katy was still rural, not just a suburb of Houston. Think Footloose, minus all the gay dancing and Kevin Bacon.
So, what you're saying is that it is not like Donn's Depot on West Fifth, here in Austin?
Correct! [/chris farley]
Tool, Rage Against the Machine, Queens of the Stone Age, and the White Stripes. Pretty much anything that the lead singers of each of these bands put out.
"I don't hate you, I'm just not necessarily excited about your existence."
My wife made me do it!
I'm gonna go ahead and need you to place your man card right here. yeah, just right there. There you go, bud.
HEY! I'll have you know that we have been married for just over 34 years, and I have won every wrasslin match we have ever had! Nudge! Nudge! Wink! Wink! Know what I mean? Know what I mean? ..... Even though, come to think of it, some of them wresslin matches might have had Enya on in the background.

I laughed aloud.
The Neville Brothers, live with guest John Hiatt, "Yellow Moon". It is recorded live so I can't complain, but it does not compare to my CD album mix. Good gawd, that is some good voodoo gumbo. Either Aaron Neville had a spell cast on his voice at birth or there were a lot of people born squawkin' cause he got all the vocal skillz that day!
