Favourite bands?

What are your favourite bands and why?

My favourites apart from Green Day are My Chemical Romance and Nirvana but I also like Foo Fighters and a few other bands.

I love MCR because they make very powerful, emotive and overall incredible music. The topics they touch upon are very personal, and that can be comforting at times.

I love Nirvana because Kurt voice is so unique and incredible and the music is very raw feeling and conveys strong emotions. I really relate to Kurt and his personality, which makes me feel even more connected to the band and their music.

I like a band called Origami Angel, they’re commonly referred to as Math Rock and Easycore. Highly recommend their album Somewhere City.

My favorite metal band is an underground Irish one named Darkest Era, and they fall under the folk metal genre.

And I cannot get enough of Pinhead Gunpowder.

Yeah I’m also a massive MCR fan for the same sorts of reasons (⁠◔⁠‿⁠◔⁠)

I listen to a lot of different genres. I mostly listen to a lot of “alt” music, metal and adjacent genres, lots of Punk, Ska etc. But I also like some other stuff.

I have a lot of favourites lol other than GD and MCR, I guess the ones that come to mind first would be: Slipknot, Korn, BMTH, Ghost, Enter Shikari, Paramore, Creeper, Evanescence, Skindred, The Skints, While She Sleeps, The Front Bottoms…I could go on but I’ll stop there >⁠.⁠<

Damn, I totally forgot to put Soundgarden/Audioslave on my list! They’re so fuckin good and so underrated as well? I stg I will talk about them to ppl and lament never getting to see them before Chris passed and they don’t even know what I’m talking about, it’s wild considering that they were a huge grunge band back in the day don’t you think?

I also think Chris had one of the best voices in music, period. So distinctive and incredible range, some of his live performances genuinly have moved me to tears.

I think his performance on Hunger Strike really shows his range, one hell of a vocalist

Yeah absolutely, that’s a great song. I think a lot of the songs off Bad Motor Finger also display the power he had, Jesus Christ Pose, Face Pollution, Outshined especially.

I just recently started getting into Ghost! I was obsessed with Mary on a Cross when I heard it on TikTok for the first time and I really like what I’ve heard so far! I’ve made my way through IMPERA and Prequelle and both are very solid albums.

Yeah they’re awesome, I hadn’t been listening to them for that long before they blew up on tiktok so I’m still quite a new fan. They’re one of those bands I’d been aware of for years but not properly listened to, and now I’m completely obsessed. Impera is a fantastic album, probably my favourite cuz it’s got no skips for me. I definitely recommend you check out Meliora, Infestissumam and Opus Eponymous cuz they all have a slightly different vibe and great songs on each but you have started with some of their best work imo.
