Bands I've Discoged (As of 12/8/16)

I'm very structured with the way I listened to music. Much of the time, if I want to listen to a band, I start from the very beginning, go to the end of their studio albums, and then go back and work my way through their b-sides. My girlfriend says it's OCD, but idk. Anyway, here is a list of bands that I've finished with so far in semi-order of when I listened to them. I will be making another list of bands I'm planning to in the future.
Brand New Eyes

The first band I found and loved without the help of my parents' musical tastes.
2Dixie Chicks

I've got to give credit to my mom on this one. I eventually shied away from her country music, but I'll always love the Chicks.
3Avenged Sevenfold
Avenged Sevenfold

The best thing to come from a bad relationship - got me listening to heavier music as well as enforcing variety in my music tastes.
4Queens of the Stone Age
Queens of the Stone Age

Perhaps my most treasured musical partner of my life so far, Josh Homme and friends will always hold a special place in my heart.
Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends

A sunny section of my life has been spent shamelessly enjoying all of their albums, that's right, even "A Head Full of Dreams."
6Brand New
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me

I started the Devil and God on a whim, and immediately fell in love. Wasn't as taken with Deja, and thus slowly circled around to the rest of their music.
7Them Crooked Vultures
Them Crooked Vultures

Dunno if this counts 'cause its just the one, but man does this rock hard. (Homme Infatuation Pt. 2)
8TV on the Radio
Dear Science

Been rockin' to them for a while before I broke into the meat of their music, and right from "Young Liars" I was immediately in love.
9Linkin Park
A Thousand Suns

Oh boy, just you wait for my Controversial Ranking for these guys.
10Peter Gabriel

Big thanks to my dad for this one, my favorite solo artist out there.
11Smashing Pumpkins
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

Huge band for me, essentially made my whole senior year musically. Listened to every song I could find, which was something alright.
12The Strokes

Unlike most people, I wasn't very impressed with their first couple albums. Also unlike most people, I really enjoy their last few.
13The Killers
Hot Fuss

Essentially the opposite of my feelings for Strokes.
14Kendrick Lamar
To Pimp a Butterfly

Let's call it my "spiritual awakening" to hip-hop and rap music, yes?
15Alabama Shakes
Sound & Color

A couple of really rad albums, this one in particular keeps growing on me.
MTV Unplugged in New York

Another band that I didn't go crazy for, but I certainly dig them, especially "Unplugged."

This one took me a while to get through, but persevere I did, and was rewarded by enjoying their later-ish albums more than most.
18Panic! At the Disco
Pretty. Odd.

Listened to them on a whim while on a road trip to New Orleans, first and last albums are eh, middle three are surprisingly good.
19The Police

Listened to them on that same road trip. Interesting ride to say the least.
Hurry Up, We're Dreaming

"Midnight City" blew my mind freshman year, and coming back to the rest of their discog, I wasn't disappointed.
21Regina Spektor
Soviet Kitsch

"Us" was my jam, now most of her albums are too!
22Foo Fighters
Wasting Light

Primarily bland alt. rock with some great songs and albums interspersed made it mostly worthwhile.
23Eagles Of Death Metal
Heart On

These albums weren't the best, but I had a great time with some of them. There are some def jams. (Homme Infatuation Pt. 3)
24Jeff Buckley

This monumental album was under my radar for much longer than I'da thought, but I'm glad to have found it when I did. (Sketches is great, too.)
25Natalie Maines

Great solo album from the front woman of the Dixie Chicks, with a solid rock edge.
26Court Yard Hounds

Great duo album from the other women of the Dixie Chicks, with a free-flowing bluegrass sound. (Pretty sure I'm the only one who rated these. Check 'em out.)
27Boots Electric
Honkey Kong

Solid solo effort from Jesse Hughes, but steer clear if you can't stand Eagles of Death Metal.
28Julian Casablancas and The Voidz

Listened to both his solo album and Tyranny. Tyranny rules.
29Desert Sessions
Volumes 9 & 10

Fantastic jams and experimentalism from my favorite musical dude and Co. (Homme Infatuation Pt. 4)
30The Beatles
Abbey Road

Everyone likes them, had to try them out. Pretty solid, still overrated.
31Green Day
American Idiot

Girlfriend likes them, had to try them out. Dug the rock, not so much the punk.
32Silversun Pickups

Pretty great band across the board, though Carnavas is the obvious highlight.
33Janelle Monae
The ArchAndroid

Her music is just delicious and all over the place.
Welcome to Sky Valley

Wanted to hear some great metal tunes and how Homme got started, was not disappointed. (Homme Infatuation Pt. 5)
35Frank Ocean
channel ORANGE

Some really smooth, fine-as-hell music here, but I just don't enjoy "Blonde" as much as the next guy.
36The Swell Season
The Swell Season

An emotional, beautiful, depressing roller coaster of a duo, this is my kind of folk music.
37Harrod and Funck

Endlessly underrated and obscure folk band from the midwest. If you enjoy folk, check out "Live." If you enjoy alternative, check out "Dreams of the Color Blind." I beg of you.
38Arctic Monkeys

Don't get what all the hubbub was about their first album, but there are definitely some great albums here I'd love to add to my collection. (Homme Infatuation Pt. 5 1/2)
39The White Stripes

Literally just finished up Icky Thump today. Great, great band, looking forward to listening to his solo stuff very soon.
