    Wow, racist much? It's not "Chinese" anymore either, it's "Chinaman stuff". Get it right.

    Nice suggestions, Diamat and Abdulmecid! However, you guys are just a bunch of unbelievers! There are SO many more genres I didn't even list, for instance, K-Pop from Korea and J-Pop from Japan, weird kawaii pop music from Japan like Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, to say nothing of all the traditional folk music of various countries from China to Russia to Iran. Although I listed lots of African American artists, I didn't even delve into actual traditional music from Africa, although I don't know much about it so I won't pretend like I do.

    Weird kawaii J-Pop music as mentioned, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu:



    I didn't even mention Hair Metal bands at all either, like Skid Row:

    You're right, music is a terrible concept and should be CANCELLED and DESTROYED. Everyone should also become voluntarily deaf and join with Beethoven in being unable to hear the world around them.

    That's where you're wrong kiddo. I'm immortal, so I have all the time in the world, especially for my beloved Thema Devia, unlike some people who are not patriotic about our sub-forum and its righteous causes. Such people should be crucified along the Appian Way.

    Let me introduce you to the delights of the popular Italian music

    warning: it can cause blindness and deafness, and possibly even sudden will for suicide

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Now, since in my tiny and puny country music is like either you cry or you puke, I've been forced to listen to rock exclusively, at the least in order to cover the usual razzle made by my compatriots (you know, it's like always a market day, even in the libraries ), hence mine is a simple list of great rock bands everybody should be worshiping

    - AC/DC is an easy win, but they really rock, probably the "best" hard rock band ever
    - Iron Maiden is a ing great band, for the most they are totally underrated because people assume they are like death metal (because of the album covers) but they aren't really so.. mostly great metal ballads, with a lot of true lyrics and some great changes of rhythm.. listen to them!
    - Black sabbath: once again people assumes that they are demoniac or such, not really so; the fathers of metal, there won't be any heavy metal if not for them; besides, they have Ozzy, the God of Rock by definition.
    - Led Zeppelin: again, a lot of people think that they are just "love love and bla bla", man no one doubts that they sang about love as well, but many many lyrics are far from that and some songs are just so sexy you can't help but wet yourself while listening to them; Nobody's fault but mine makes me horny every time.
    - Rammstein: just wash your ears and get ready to be introduced to a whole new level of metal; Lindemann has a terrible metal voice, but a great melodic one, and he compensate the former with a great acting skill... a fantastic band, astonishing live shows, probably the creepiest lyrics in general (excluded death metal of course)
    - Motorhead: lads, I mean, who was cooler than Lemmy? I always dreamed to have a beard like his, but I can't due to my stupid public job; besides, the fact that Lemmy played the bass like a guitar (with chords) makes their music unique.. really, a unique band under many aspects
    - Metallica: dudes, I don't even have to talk about them.. either you love them or you hate them
    - Megadeth: same as above, usually the love for one excludes the love for the other one; besides I think that Mustaine is immortal, he gets younger as the years go by..
    - SOAD.. the first time I heard them it was like "da is this ?" .. a bit of crazy dudes, but some songs are just masterpieces in all regards.. great band, great sound (very varied)
    - Queen: call me crazy, but the Queen was the only true rock band for a while, in a age of people like Duran Duran or Depeche Mode... while the old great bands from the seventies were fading away and the new wave of trash metal wasn't up yet, they marked the time with great rock songs.. besides, Freddy had the best voice ever, period.
    - Nirvana: I remember I cried the day I knew that Curt was dead... most emotional rock band ever, grunge is not really the correct therm to define them.. if you haven't ever listened to the unplugged @ MTV, do that and be prepared to have your music experience changed forever
    - Pink Floid: I've like the feeling that many youngsters don't even know who they are... psychedelic is just the starting word to define them.. join them in their trips and be prepared to be brought on a world of acids and dreams.. not very "hard" rock, but some riffs are simply epic
    - Guns N' Roses: yes I hate how Axl has become .. I mean come on Benny Hill, get out of his body!!! Some songs are part of the history of rock (welcome to the jungle, so horny!) and Slash is a ing badass, I'm sure he sits at the right side of Ozzy
    - FFDP: stepping on more modern bands... relatively new, pretty much american, but I love their style, a fresh wind of metal in a age of Biebers
    - Greta Van Fleet: they made me puke the first time I saw them live, how in the name of God they dress like that is beyond me.. dudes, this is the 3rd millennia... but their music is just awesome.. they wear a lot of influences in their sleeves, but this could be only like that, considering that they re-propose classic rock in the 2020s

    so... there would be more, but this is the actual list of those I listen most

    Great post, Flinn! I agree with most of that. Good to see a fellow rock and metal fan around here, not just the pretentious lovers of particular classical composers who exclude everything else for some reason.

    Your video was entertaining indeed. What is the best Italian traditional musician or group in your opinion? Or do you not have a favorite?

    lol well that's the typical "Musica Napoletana".. that's the kind of entertainment that either you love it or you hate it.. for the most only people from Naples love it

    As per your second question, it's difficult to tell, because there's a big gap in italian music from the 60s and 70s to modern times. Basically on those years we had what we call the "great singer-songwriters", a lot of great musicians who mixed good music with great lyrics (mostly social stuff, though).. however, on my book, there weren't many "bands" at the time, probably the PFM (Premiata Forneria Marconi) is the only Italian band that reached an international level, this because they mixed folklorist music with rock. On the side of singer-songwriters I value Guccini (mostly political and social stuff) and DeAndrè (it's basically poetry and philosophy) the most, because they both have great lyrics.. there are more recent artists that I don't despise, like Vasco Rossi or Litfiba (a band) because they have a reasonable level of rock (for italian music I mean), but not much more than this (probably Lucio Battisti, IMO his incredible music talent was somewhat mitigated by the monotony of the lyrics, mostly love stuff, that he did not write himself anyways).

    Much more to add, but I guess I bored you enough already

    Thanks for the reply! I wouldn't have known any of this stuff because I simply don't know much if anything about Italian music. I'll look into each of these guys on Youtube.

    Excellent! I love the suggestions, especially Megadeth for Thrash Metal (could have gone with Slayer, Anthrax, or early Sepultura as obvious choices too), Beastie Boys for Hip Hop, Johnny Cash for Outlaw Country, Kool and the Gang, Nirvana for Grunge, In Flames for Melodic Death Metal, Ramones for 1970s rock (although I would have just gone for Punk Rock there), Iron Maiden for Classical Heavy Metal, Pink Floyd for Prog Rock, Garbage for Alternative Rock, and Faith No More, a worthy substitute for Primus in the Funk Metal genre.

    I'll check out Nightwish, Theatre of Tragedy, Faun, and Suicide Commando now that you've mentioned them. I obviously already know about Rammstein. I also know about Lacuna Coil, although I haven't heard much of their material.

    As for Hardcore, though, I think Dead Kennedys are way more purely Punk Rock than part of the Hardcore scene. When I say "Hardcore" I don't just mean bands like Sick of It All, I also mean Sworn Enemy, Blood for Blood, Bad Brains, Agnostic Front, and even old school Darkest Hour before they become more of a Melodic Death Metal band. Stuff like this:



    I should have also added Groove Metal with the band Pantera as an obvious choice:



    Also, you are definitely confusing Nu Metal, bands like Korn, Papa Roach, or Limp Bizkit, with New Wave Thrash Metal, which is a completely different genre, and usually includes Crossover Thrash, a mixture of thrash metal with hardcore punk, in the vein of bands like Suicidal Tendencies. This new wave of thrash includes bands like Iron Reagan (a spinoff of Municipal Waste shown above) Alcoholator, Reign of Fire, Skulled, Lich King, or bands like Warbringer, who bring back the sounds of 1980s thrash metal with a more recent, heavier twist:



    Alcoholator is hilarious by the way:



    Iron Reagan is even funnier:



    You should also give Bluegrass bands a chance, they are extremely talented, especially ones like Trampled by Turtles:

    If you look for Nightwish, start with the albums with Tarja, the goddess of singing.



    The other female singers, after she left the band, are good, but not her.

    I love Pantera. Good choice.

    Honestly i didn't know what you had meant with New Wave of Trash Metal.

    I could be wrong, but at this time power metal was more popular in Europe.

    Like Helloween, Blind Guardian, Hammerfall, Primal Fear.





    Hardcore is not my taste, but i think i will give bluegrass a chance.

    To continue the list:

    Power Metal
    Hammerfall
