Help me! i need a rock guide


#1

I need some help. Only a year ago i was a sweaty, isolative and annoying little computer geek :’(, only listening to crappy techno music and other mainstream shit. :o



Now i have made great progresss in my ‘degeekification’ process :slight_smile: (sounds geeky :-</E>). Im more social now, i exercise more, and i know a shitload about tarantino movies (compared to my friends)



I have begin listening to real music, rock mostly. My only problem is, i dont know shit about it! I want to say that im into rock n’ roll (cause i love it ;D). but i theres a lot of the most legendary bands i havent even heard about.



Could some of you people, please post some of the names i should examine closer? and if possible links to bio’s and stuff

First of all, good you stepped off the techno :stuck_out_tongue: And as for bands, BadMotherFucker6 named some great bands. I would like to add Black Sabbath, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Oasis and Creedence Clearwater Revival. I’ll check my iTunes for more bands when I’m home.

I say you should start out by trying out the most popular big rock bands of the 60s/70s: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix Experience, and The Who. Then, try out Pink Floyd, Queen, ELP (Emerson, Lake, And Palmer), King Crimson, Yes, Jethro Tull, and Gentle Giant. I think that everyone should start in this time period…then, work your way through the years until you get to the present.



And whoa, I just noticed how old this thread is.

me has some good suggestions. I’d suggest:



Sex Pistols

Cursive

Thee Michelle Gun Elephant

Beatles

Flower Travellin Band

Hendrix

Zeppelin

Weezer

Pretty Girls Make Graves



And whatever else your heart desires. Just don’t listen to the guy who likes Godsmack. He’s retarded.
