|Favorite Songs By Artist|
My favorites are probably not your favorites and plenty of these are
random choices. Whatever... don't get your panties in a knot.
|1||Alice in Chains|
"Brother" Now I almost chose "Swing on This", but then I realized that "Brother" was
the only song that got me so emotional that I shed tears. I love the music and the
emotion and everything about this song. Sure AiC's heavy hitters are amazing too,
but for me this song tops it all.
Magical Mystery Tour
"I Am the Walrus" To me The Beatles are at their best when they get psychedelic and
this song is the king of all of that. 3 songs in 1 and random as hell. "Tomorrow Never
Knows" is the only song that even comes close.
"Sleep!" This was the first Big Black song I've ever heard (although I heard
"Steelworker" the same day.) and after explore every song they ever had, this one
still takes the cake with its catchy bass and gritty vocals.
"Thill of it All" Random choice, I know. I haven't yet heard Sabbath Bloody Sabbath,
but out of their first 4 albums and their 6th, this one puts me in the best mood when
it comes up on shuffle on my Ipod. Plus the pickup is sweet.
|5||Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band|
Safe as Milk
"Sure 'Nuff 'n Yes I Do", I've only heard his first 3 albums and Bongo Fury, and this
has to be my favorite out of those. PJ Harvey thought it was good enough to open
one of her albums with the same lines as this song, that's one hell of a compliment!
|6||Creedence Clearwater Revival|
"Run Through the Jungle" I love songs that paint pictures. This one does exactly and
would work on so many different album soundtracks, I swear. Listen to it and you'll
Station to Station
"Station" Now I've heard everything from his debut-Station to Station (except
Diamond Dogs...I'll get to it soon enough) and this 10 minute long epic is just, crazy,
and somewhat experimental. Can't wait till I hear Low haha.
"Pond Song" Now I've heard everything from their debut-Without a Sound, and this
song is just so perfect. The drums are so bouncy and J's voice is neat in it (yeah I
used the word neat...I know.)
Waiting for the Sun
"Love Street" Now I haven't heard LA Woman, so that could change my mind, but out
of their first 5 albums, this song is certainty the one that gets caught in my head the
most and the meaning behind it is pretty cool and poetic.
|10||Faith No More|
"Land of Sunshine" This is one of the few songs that cheers me up when I'm sad. It's
loud and crazy, but the lyrics are so positive. The bass and drums are sick too and
the guitar? Don't get me started!
|11|| ||Frank Zappa|
"For the Young Sophisticate" I know a good 30 Zappa songs could possibly make my
favorites of all time and this song is a random AS HELL choice. With that said, it's
interesting how Zappa could make such a heart-felt song and still fit satire into it. The
guitar and bass are yet again great."Suicide Chump", "Inca Roads", "Wonderful
Wino" and so many others deserve honorable mentions.
Live Through This
"Plump" This one is especially random since its one of their most forgotten. With that
said It's honestly my favorite by far though I haven't been listening to Hole for a
while now... I should give them a revisit.
|13||How to Destroy Angels|
"Too Late, All Gone" Now this album as a whole was underwhelming, but this song is
still catchy as hell and Trent provides cool as hell backups.
"Idiots Rule" My favorite for this band changes a lot, but overall this one has been at
my #1 the most soooooooooooooooooo
|15||The Jimi Hendrix Experience|
Axis: Bold as Love
"Castles Made of Sand" This song has an awesome intro and awesome instruments,
but what really gets me is the lyrics. They're cool, but depressing.
"Tight A$" Because getting past the censors was never so cool. "Tight ass" get it? But
serious this song is just one of his catchiest y'know?
The Beauty Process: Triple Platinum
"Off the Wagon" As a whole, I prefer Hungry for Stink, but this song is just so god
damn catchy I mean serious. It's about drinking........um.
|18||Led Zeppelin |
"For Your Life" Slow, sexy, sensual vocals, catchy riff. Why isn't this a more popular
song again? And this is Led Zeppelin so we know the drums are awesome.
"Scare Crow" It's slow moving, droning, and basically the type of song I wouldn't
even be expected to like, but for some reason that I don't even know, it's my
favorite. I just feel like listening to it way more than their other songs... go figure.
"The Air-Conditioned Nightmare" Crazt vocals, crazy guitar and drums, crazy
everything. From my favorite album ever. Where's my rainbow? GENRE HOPPING
|21||Nine Inch Nails|
"The Warning" Another random choice I know, but the guitar is pretty cool in the
song and the pre-apocalyptic lyrics are pretty haunting. "so much potential or so we
used to say"
"Very Ape" this one is just for the music, the lyrics are a bit repetitive, but the guitar
line is wonderful.
"Pigs (Three Different Ones)" Animals is clearly their best album and my personal
favorite is Pigs because their description is so reminiscent of Animal Farm, also the
guitar is awesome so yeah.
"Rock Music" Since Bossanova is my favorite Pixies album this isn't too shocking I
hope. It's my favorite Pixies guitar line as well as my favorite Pixies "screamy" song.
Overall It just ends up as my favorite.
To Bring You My Love
"C'mon Billy" NOW THIS this is a random as hell choice. I love PJ and have heard her
first 6 albums so to pick the emotional, acoustic, girly song longing for her child to
have his father back home is random, but that's what's so special about PJ. Her
distress is so perfect.
Automatic for the People
"The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite" Take this one lightly since I've only heard 4 of their
albums (Document-AftP) It's catchy, quick, and contains some cool as hell lyrics.
Best song on AftP for sure, though "Drive" is probably #2.
"I Might Be Wrong" To me, the falsetto vocals, slidey guitar, and the clicky drums say
so much about what's great with Radiohead. It's so transy and I love it. One of the
best songs ever.
|28||Rage Against the Machine|
"Vietnow" Honorable mention to "Maria" since its a close 2nd. This song is vulgar and
crazy. Morello outdoes himself on it too. Fear is your only god? Who would have
|29||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
Blood Sugar Sex Magik
"Mellowship Slinky in B Major" So many damn references in 1 song, such a catchy
gutiar and bass. "Falling into Grace" is a close second. I love all of their stuff from
their debut-By the Way (after By the Way I kind of hate them... but yeah) This song
is the cream of the crop IN MY OPINION.
|30||The Smashing Pumpkins|
"Geek USA" Now all of their 90s stuff is amazing, but this song's guitar, drums, and
climactic outro just prove that they're all talented as hell. Siamese Dream is one of
the best albums ever and this song and the almost as brilliant "Mayonaise" really
show it. Too bad their 2000s stuff is worthless crap.
Down on the Upside
"An Unkind" No this song is a random choice, but I think its placement on the album
does it so much justice. As the final crazy song on the album it shines are the fastest
paced. The scream towards the end of it is just breath taking too.
"Jesus Children of America" I'm an atheist and I love to sing these religious as hell
lyrics. Any artist that can do that to me, must be great. The emotion and harmonizing
are so great!
|33||Stone Temple Pilots|
"Meatplow" I've only heard their first 3 albums (but who cares about their later stuff
anyway?) and this song's guitar takes the cake. The lyrics remind me of a panic a
bit. Just awesome.
|34||System of a Down|
System of a Down
"CUBErt" I saw someone dissing this song decently and it made me really sad. To me
this song is so random and obviously a filler, but hey sometimes fillers yield great
results and this is proof. "Prison Song" and "Suite-Pee" get honorable mentions since
they almost made it.
Fear of Music
"Cities" A song with cool keyboards that's fast paced about finding a city to live in.
Quirky, paranoid, and overall David Byrne at his best.
|36||Temple of the Dog|
Temple of the Dog
"All Night Thing" This song is another great listen when I'm sad. Another emotional
painted picture with catchy drums... you've heard it all by now am I getting
Chocolate and Cheese
"Mister, Would You Please Help My Pony?" I've heard only all of their 90s stuff except
The Pod, but even then I can tell this is one of the great songs over written EVER.
"Big Jilm" "I Gots a Weasel", and "Ocean Man" are so other amazing ones. Ween, like
Zappa is diverse as hell so it was hard to choose a favorite.
|38||The White Stripes|
"Apple Blossom" I like the piano a lot. Plus De Stijl is totally their best album. This is
perfect is you like simple songs, which on occasion is nice.
The Yes Album
"Starship Trooper" I've heard all of their albums up to Going for the One and this is
by far my favorite. 9 minutes of proggy amazingness. The middle acoustic part is
sweet as hell and the bass and drums of course are sweet. I say Yes to this song! ...
