1. Grace Potter
2. Lake Street Dive
3. Simon and Garfunkel

beyond that, tough to list favorites, but I enjoy other bands with that general sound, stuff like Glass Animals and Alt J, positive uptempo EDM, popular 70s and 80s rock, non-Phish jam bands. As a 90s child, I do have a soft spot for shitty pop. Having musically inclined parents, I also enjoy classical music and jazz.
Edit: have also been known to partake in some barefoot bluegrass dirt stompin.
^ my favorite post in this thread. thanks for the great suggestions! i'm really diggin Grace Potter! \:D/

take a penny leave a penny. my top 5:
1. Tyler Childers
2. Van Morrison
3. fun.
4. in the blue shirt
5. Vampire Weekend

honorables: CCR, Blues Traveler, Girl Talk, Queen, Paul Simon, Nickel Creek, HAIM, Protest the Hero, Made in Heights, and The Eagles
I don't even recall when I dropped my initial two cents on this thread, but they remain the same. I guess worth mentioning that my favorite song ever is Time of the Season by the Zombies.
Definitely enjoy CCR, Vampire Weekend, and I LOVE Haim. But yes, Grace Potter is a goddess.
"The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need – if only we had the eyes to see." -Ed Abbey

"I get scared sometimes—lots of times—but it's not bad. You know? I feel close to myself. When I'm out there at night, I feel close to my own body, I can feel my blood moving, my skin and my fingernails, everything, it's like I'm full of electricity and I'm glowing in the dark—I'm on fire almost—I'm burning away into nothing—but it doesn't matter because I know exactly who I am." from The Things They Carried

Biffy Clyro.
Feel in love with this Scottish band when I lived in UK. Haven't really gotten noticed in USA.

Black chandelier, bubbles, many of horror, mountains...

So good.
You're welcome.

Sorry to see the passing of one of the greatest guitarists of all time. I will certainly miss Eddie Van Halen. RIP.

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

He was my idol growing up - junior high to about 10th grade or so. First album I bought was 'Diver Down', then 'Fair Warning'. 'Fair Warning' and VH1 were
my 2 faves by far.

Probably my favorite song for a long time:



The AQI lately in FoCo has me thinking of this song a lot. Another of my faves from back in the day:

Today is John Lennon's 80th birthday. Here with impromptu supergroup The Dirty Mac performing "Yer Blues" from the White Album, on the Rolling Stones' Rock and Roll Circus (which was also Brian Jones' last live performance with the Stones):

I just read this entire thread and definitely saw some great bands/musicians mentioned! I cannot narrow my favorites down to five though, and will not even try. I did not see this mentioned anywhere in the thread. It has been a long time since I have heard anything off this album.

Such a good cover I thought. I don't know if he's my boss, but Bruce is kind of the man I think...

Appropriate to share given the recent snow. How I listened to metal for so long without knowing about this band I have no idea.

Black Sabbath
Lynard Skynrd
CCR
Jimi
Led Zep
Rolling Stones
Eagles
Modest Mouse
