QotD: Band

Question: If you could only listen to one band, group, or singer for the rest of your life, who would you choose?

My Answer: R.E.M. With the variety of their 20-year career and the intelligence of the lyrics, I'd never get tired of their vast collection of music.

  1. Oasis definitely. 10 years and I haven't tired of them yet.

  2. You have to go with Zeppelin. No question.

  3. The Pixies.

  4. a second vote for the pixies. moreso if you expand it to all the 4AD bands.

    REM post IRS had a much lower hit rate. IRS would be a nice 2nd or 3rd runner-up to 4AD.

  5. C'mon, "hits" are merely a measure of a society's idiocy. 🙂 R.E.M. was told "you can't make a radio hit" so they wrote "Shiny Happy People," which succeeded as a radio hit while completely mocking the same people who liked it. "Stand" is similar as well.

  6. Tough call. I'm torn between John Williams and Pink Floyd. Williams would probably win out just because he has a much larger body of work. Besides, life without strings would be a barren cold existence hardly worth living.

    Weezer, I have all of their CDs, a lot of B sides, and back in 2001 and 2002 they released a lot of raw studio tracks on their site. A...

  8. Peter Gabriel.

    Question of the Day: If you could only listen to one band, group, or singer for the rest of your life, who would you choose? My answer: U2. Not saying this is the band for everybody but seeing as I have gone through periods where I listened to U2 on an...

  10. Tom Waits.

  11. i didn't mean "hit rate" as in "hits".. or at least not in the top 40/radio play/clearchannel-approved way.

    life's rich pageant would definitely be one of my desert island five.

    "stand" and "shiny happy people" may have been mocking.. but they're still annoying. "the one i love" or the cure's "let's go to bed" are much better examples.

  12. I'm with Gregory: Tom Waits. No question at all.

  13. Ew. No desert island top 5 or 10? Hmmm. The Beatles. just because of the variety.

  14. Sting (including his days with The Police)

  15. Billy Joel.

  16. Definitely Dave Matthews Band: amazing tunes, a lyrical genius, and a voice that just never grows old.

  17. Monster Magnet

  18. Neuroticfish.

  19. Brad Sucks 🙂

  20. The Mars Volta is in fact glued into my CD player.
