And now, the obligatory music thread!

I'll start. While working on the site I just have Pandora going in the background - half the time I don't even notice what's playing, but this is something I just heard that has an interesting sound to it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F90Cw4l-8NY

Hey, I heard that song at work the other day. Can't say I really like it, but it's very distinctive and recognizable.

Anyway, something from me:

Milestones are important, because they remind us that no matter how far we've come, we will never convert to the metric system!

Korn - My Wall

Korn - Never Never


Five Finger Death Punch - Bad Company

@Ty: Yeah, that's a pretty good one.
@Wolfy: I liked the first one(Though it started out pretty generic, got more interesting later), didn't care for the second.
@Chris/Wolfy: Thirded! And in reply, here's a thing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4p39ciSHKwo
@Olivia: 1st, alright, second, good but bordering on overplayed, third, dear God I hate that song(Blame Spotify ads), fourth I'll add to my drawing playlist, since why not, fifth is kinda fun.
@Wofly again: Didn't like the first two, third is a fine song, but I've heard it many times.

And now, the second(And probably best) revision of the song New Black Gold. Makes me want to start a Cyberpunk RP...

Because I already posted it two or three times in the previous music thread...

I usually hate this type of music with a passion, and this song is incredibly overplayed... But I still like it for a reason I can't explain.

Pharrell Williams - Happy

And a song that is directly from my childhood.

Ray Parker Jr. - Ghostbusters

EDIT: And also this.

Avenged Sevenfold - Nightmare

This is a good song to listen to when looking at aliens, monsters, demons and other paranormal imagery on DeviantArt.

Don't know if I've posted this before, but I still love this song..

COPILOT - Drunken Whaler

Such a good song to accompany such a good game.

Not sure if you have, but I have(On the old forum ofc). Good song, still haven't played the game yet though.

Lindsey Stirling's Phantom of the Opera.

The Nightwish version is also pretty great. The original I don't really care for though.

Elijah's favorite song, one of Jonathan's least favorite. Our brother in law loves it too. I kinda like it, but it isn't a favorite.

Well, like I said I wasn't really sure what to think of it. I think I lean toward liking it a little more, but at the same time, it's not really my style of music.

@Garyn'sLink: Lzzy Hale is pretty cool.

Evidenced by: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiqytKqLRTA

What? Tributing my favorite music artist is just an automatic +.

And speaking of tributes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsmaotgFaoY <- I love this.

I feel like I've posted both of these before, but I don't see them in this thread or the last thread, not that I looked that hard, but eh. I'm just gunna assume I didn't post them.

    I could very almost like Lights(As well as a lot of Ellie Goulding songs). But there are some certain sounds that will just ruin any song for me, and the two sounds that do this most effectively are 1, autotune(Anything with obvious autotune I just cannot listen to), and 2, I don't think there's an official term for it, but when a word or short phrase is repeated over and over again in a short period of time and the ending of each word/phrase is slightly clipped in editing so they can fit more in. I don't know why this bothers me so much, but I just can't stand it, and it happens somewhere around 2:22 and again near the end in Lights. It's almost exclusively a problem in modern songs, because of the computer editing it requires. It's not that I'll objectively call her songs bad, but pet peeves prevent me from enjoying most of them.
    To my knowledge this is the only Ellie Goulding song I like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Hstt2EG9Us  There might be more, but if there are I haven't heard them.

    I've noticed something about metal music. Except in some rare cases, the first time you listen to any heavy metal song it sounds super-generic and unmemorable. Case in point, the two you just posted, I listened to them a few minutes ago, and already I cannot remember the tune and barely any of the lyrics. Same goes for the metal songs I like though, so I don't know if those are mediocre or if I just haven't listened to it the necessary five times to pick up any nuances and see if I like them or not...
    Also case in point, this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZpbCLdg-r8  Not usually my kind of music, and I thought it was pretty mediocre at first(And only listened to it in the first place because I follow MoS), but it's grown on me.

You're actually right about that. I used to find most rock music in general to be terribly generic sounding, until I listened to it enough to start noticing the more subtle differences and became more used to the general instrumental sounds. Metal basically branched off of that. I never really liked it or found it interesting, until after I started liking Rainbow In The Dark and Enter Sandman. From there I just started exploring and got more used to the genre, so I tend to like songs from it more quickly now.

I do think though, as a general rule, any genre you aren't really used to tends to all sound the same, with occasional exceptions.

And so, because I don't like posting in threads like this without contributing at least something of what is supposed to be contributed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUQTYNYWKV0 <- Once again a song that is interesting, yet can also be annoying. It's not my kind of music, but it has some neat sounds in it.

Oh, one more thing... I really am not even sure what autotune even sounds like, so it never really bothers me. I usually just attribute anything I don't like the sound of to modern music being sub-par as it generally is.

Um... wow...?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nba3Tr_GLZU - I rather like this one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAF9GMqiRbs - And something I hear at work and at stores/gas stations quite often. Not that I really like it that much.

@Olivia: Those are okay.

@Garyn: I really don't know what to think about tha buffalo thing...

Oh, I had forgotten how I first found Halestorm. It was actually through a Fleetwood Mac cover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th-bNkZL3lU
