        Right now I am hooked on a Live365 radio station that plays a techno music with mix of arabic and middle eastern influences called Arabix. Some good ones are Natacha Atlas, Karsh Kale, Transglobal Underground, Talvin Singh, etc. If you are familiar with these groups give me a PM. :thumb:

        My more mainstream listening includes Cabaret Voltaire, Skinny Puppy, Delerium, Paul Oakenfold, etc.

        Oh, not mainstream enough? :P How about New Order, REM, U2, Dido, Britney Spears, 10,000 Maniacs, etc.

        Oh, did I say Britney? :crazy:

          I am big into techno/club/trance/house and wish I still had a good club to go to. Alas I am too old. But I love good dance music and a good DJ throbbing all night long.

            judging by what I've read, it looks like I'm the one who listens to the violent music, has anyone even heard of my bands. I do like LEd Zeppelin, ac/dc and old 70s stuff even though it was before my time. i also like hank sr and hank jr. but other than that i hate country, i also hate rap and pop music.

                    I like Black Sabbath. Does that count?

                    I liked Henry Rollins for a time.

                    The Sex Pistols are definitely punk.

                    Dead Kennedys are close.

                    Hmm.

                    I like Soundgarden.

                    Then again on the other hand, Chicken Salad is a complete wuss who listens to girly music.

                      I like a lot movie musics. Otherwise it is Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Jethro Tull... And some German music like Klaus Schulze and Tangerime Dream.

                          Black Sabbath's Iommi Tops Guitar Greats List

                          LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Here's one "guitar greats" list that Jimi Hendrix (news) did not top: "the 100 greatest metal guitarists of all time."


                          According to Guitar World magazine, the No. 1 metal guitarist is Tony Iommi, the God-fearing axeman with pioneering English heavy metal band Black Sabbath.


                          Six musicians claimed the next four spots: Metallica (news - web sites)'s James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett tied at No. 2; AC/DC siblings Angus and Malcolm Young at No. 3; Randy Rhoads (news), the late sideman for Ozzy Osbourne, at No. 4; and Eddie Van Halen (news), of the foursome that bears his name, at No. 5. Hendrix was No. 12, six places behind Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page (news).


                          The list appears in the magazine's March issue, which hits newsstands next week.


                          According to Guitar World editor-in-chief Brad Tolinski, the criteria for the list were purity and innovation. He said Iommi never strayed from a basic formula of B-tuned guitars played very loudly, plenty of power chords and slower rhythms.


                          "He's essentially the guy that created most of the conventions for heavy metal," Tolinski said. Iommi's "shining moment" is the track "Warning" from the band's self-titled 1970 debut album, according to the poll.


                          If Black Sabbath started the heavy metal ball rolling, then Metallica kept it alive, Tolinski said, pointing to the 1984 track "Creeping Death" as the band's stand-out.


                          Page's relatively low No. 6 ranking raised some eyebrows since Led Zeppelin also helped pave the way for heavy metal. But Tolinski said Page would be the first to admit that his playing also incorporates blues and folk. Similarly, Eddie Van Halen has always had a foot in the pop world, he added.


                          Hendrix, who died in 1970, introduced some of the genre's conventions, but Tolinski termed him more of a "futuristic blues player" than a heavy metal guitarist.

                            Here's mine:

                            Mudvayne
                            Metallica
                            Slayer
                            Pantera
                            Hatebreed
                            Chimaira
                            Good question, Erwin!

                            Let's see:

                            Floyd
                            Zep
                            AC/DC
                            Genesis/Collins/Gabriel
                            Supertramp
                            Alan Parsons Project
                            Tragically Hip
                            Stones
                            Doors
                            Tull
                            Sabbath

                            Along with a moderate mix of new music. I like a bit of classical, a bit of country, a bit of alternative, etc. But classic rock seems to be a big favorite.

                              That sounds more like something one of the club groupies should be saying!
