Hello,

I like to consider myself as well rounded wspecially with music. I listen to everything on a daily basis with the exception of HEAVY METAL

I have always listen to a few alternative songs and recently found myself loving the sound of...

system of the down ... chop suey, cigaro, BYOB and others
puddle of mudd... she hates me
Trapt... head strong
skindred...nobody gets out alive, brainkiller, set it off
lit... my own worst enemy
alien ant farm.... smooth criminal

I ask what other songs and or artist might I be interested in?

Chop Suey BYOB and Worst enemy are the shit!!!

Thank you

step 1 : learn what alternative rock is.
step 2 : don't ever say "I listen to everything except...."
step 3 : come back when you complete the previous 2 steps

Please excuse my Grammar Professor...

Wait.. this is how I got banned the 1st time so I will be the bigger person and not return a flame to you... just because it's easy.

OK I turn the other check, feel free to strike again you coward. Thanks.

Anyone else care to try and overlook my improper grammar and actually offer any suggestions?


****I learned my lesson Admins... I am setting the example

Everything here is either Alternative, inspired/ inspired by Alternative, or share influences with Alternative, although; most of it is the music that finally killed the 80's, revived the 70's, and made the 90's so much fun, Grunge!

If asked I can directly connect almost all of these bands, except maybe 2 or 3. (Isn't incest great. ;p )
