    music wise..

    I love Van Halen and I know some of you like Beatles and Iron Maiden(two of the other bands that I love). But I see most of you like bands like Kiss, Scorpions, Damn Yankees, Bon Jovi etc.. and I can't stand such groups. I stopped listening to most hard rock & heavy metal around 1995.

    I think you'd be surprised what some people here have in their music collections. But we're all here because we do share one thing in common - a love for Van Halen in one form or other!

    I'm not a fan of any of these bands [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] Back in their day, the Scorps were great, but that was 10 years ago.

    I like to listen to either new music, or pre-cheese 60s-80's stuff,of all styles, with a few 19th century dudes in there for fun [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I think I pretty much like the same bands that other people here like. Classic stuff like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Ozzy, Judas Priest. Also newer bands like Godsmack, Sevendust, and Creed. I'm not a fan of Kiss, Scorpions, Bon Jovi, Damn Yankees, or Bon Jovi though.

    Hmmm, let's see....I really love Damn Yankees and Scorpions, I also like Bon Jovi and of course I like The Beatles! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]


    I can't stand Kiss! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    As for Iron Maiden, I downloaded tons of their songs on Napster because some people on this site said how great they were, I liked The Wickerman and Run To The Hills, THAT'S IT! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] Most of their songs have no point to them, it seems to me like they play Dungeons & Dragons all day and write about that. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Rock N' Roll should be about relationships and love, not D&D IMHO.

    I don't like them.

    i like the scorps.
    i love the beatles, i like some bon jovi, but not that much.
    van halen is the greatest band in the world. (you all know that)
    rock and roll isn't all about love and relationships though. i dunno where that came from, but take van halen which is more of a party and have a good time atmosphere, which i think is the epitomy of rock and roll.

    I hate most of the "butt-metal" stuff too. In my opinion 80's were the weakest decade in music. Period.

    There are only a handful of bands from the 80's who's music will stand the test of time. VH, AC/DC, Maiden, Ozzy & Metallica, the rest is all shit!

    I was a teenager in the 80's & all my friends were into hair-metal. I was the weird one of the group because I liked 60's/70's music & I just started to get into Blues & Jazz. I hated Poison, Cinderella, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard etc. & until this day I'm very embarrassed about most of music that came from that era.

    What I'm really into now is pretty much Jam Bands type stuff. The Dead, Allmans, Gov't Mule, Phish etc. & a lot of that goes back to Blues & Jazz.

    The problem with the 80's was there was no heart & soul, it was cheesy girl rock. It was all about getting chicks. Now don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with wanting to get chicks but when that's the only thing that matters, the music suffers.

    In the 90's, music got too angry, too much angst, that's not what I want in my music. Music is supposed to be a release from all the bullshit that life deals you. To me, it's all about the "vibe", to feel good & have a good time. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]....Not get all pissed off & be reminded of the bummers in life.

    But like Billy007 said we're all here because we do share one thing in common - a love for Van Halen in one form or other!

    VH is my fav band. I hate 80s hair bands. Alot of music of the 80s are tortureous.
    I like Beatles and Maiden.
    Hate Kiss, Bon Jovi(for the most part), and Damn Yankee's.
    I like the Scorps.
    I differ from most people on the board, because I love alternative music. My second and third fav bands are Weezer and the Foo Fighters. I love Grunge, Nirvana, STP, etc. I listen to alternative music alot. In general, I don't like party music, because it's not thought provoking and baseless, but I enjoy music with strongsongwriting and deep emotions.

    I don't like hair metal either. Really bugs me when people lump me into that group because of my ties to VH.

    My collection is pretty diverse. I have a lot ranging from the Apollo 13 soundtrack to four Weird Al albums. No puppet pop, of course. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    You'll find my music tastes are very broad.

    Pretty much anything from the late '70s to today I can stand to listen to, with some exceptions along the way. I have a real tender spot in my heart for Hair Metal. Yes, they weren't always the most profound of musicians, but sometimes you just want to listen to something that's fun.

    I've found there is a time and a place for everything. When I'm in a good mood I listen to the '80s. When I'm apathetic or in a bad mood I listen to the '90s. Otherwise I mix things up.

    Yes, the musical landscape sucks, but it's far from a morass of nothingness.

    That said, I can't stand Iron Maiden and never have, the Beatles never floated my boat, and though Kiss has some decent songs, their rampant greed and commercialism has reduced them to such a state of ludicrousy.

    The Scorpions are an excellent band. My intrest in Damn Yankees extends to High Enough. Bon Jovi has its moments.

    Actually, something I just thought of...

    I kind of detest those stations that feel the need to shove classic rock down my throat. The artists are dead, the era has passed, and honestly, Jimi is dead and most people don't care. Led Zepplin never said anything profound enough in their music to move me more than Winger's "classic" Seventeen has. I just don't connect to that era, and I resent people telling me I have to.

    My idea of classic rock is sitting down on a warm night with a cool drink and listening to a silly mix of such "greats" as Warrant, Winger, Poison, Cinderella, Firehouse, Europe, Great White, Ratt, Dokken, Bad English and so on. But you know, nobody has a station dedicated to rock from the '80s, and it bites monkeys.

    Long John Silver - Hmmm. I guess it is all taste. I saw the Scorpions back in 1998 and they unarguably were better then Creed, Metallica, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, and Dave matthews Band when I saw them. I think something has to be said for bands like Scorpions and Bon Jovi who still pack venues and sell a respectable amount of albums over 20-25 years later. The difference is, all the bands from 1990 - 1995 were entirely washed up by 2000. Think about it. Nirvana? Pearl Jam? Smashing Pumkins? AIC? STP? Soundgarden? Blues Traveler? Spin Doctors? Collective Soul? Hole? Meanwhile, Kiss, Scorpions, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, and Def Leppard were still drawing and selling somewhat.

    Nirvana's Nevermind is still selling like crazy. Pearl Jam also has been having continued success. STP's new album is one of their best. New songs by Collective Soul and Blues Traveller are getting a LOT of MTV airplay. I have to agree Bon Jovi are doing well, the reason for that is the same as the success of boy bands - the teenage girl segment. But I don't remember hearing about Motley Crue in the news lately, unless it was something connected with Pamela getting beaten up.
