I hate the coldplay singer's voice. I like plenty of weird voices, but his annoys the crap outta me.
I've warmed up to Animal Collective, but I think their singles and last three or four albums are a pretty poor representation of their music.
Not sure about proportions, but from most to least here's where I discover most of my music:
- The internet, particularly last.fm.
- Videogame soundtracks. GH and RB are the main ones, but I also discovered some bands through Saints Row and Brutal Legend.
- Free CDs in music magazines.
- Support acts for bands I see live.
I have a goto guy for music who has set me up with almost all of my current favorite bands of all time. no joke. He literally has shown me every one of my top five bands.
Also, I think that Metallica is over-rated. Some one will likely crucify me for that statement, but I only think it because I'm not the biggest metal fan in any sense of the word. It just does nothing for me.
Not another Big Four conversation. Please.
I consider Slayer to be overrated, and I like Megadeth, but I hate Dave Mustaine.
