I'd almost say criminally underrated. I've never understood why they were never really able to catch on.. Maybe the world just wasn't ready for a grungish band with a strong southern influence.

David, great list we have a lot in common...I am a Brother Cane fan as well.

My favs:

Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
Live - Throwing Copper
Foo Fighters - Foo Fighters
Nirvana - Nevermind
Nirvana - Incesticide
Green Day - Dookie
Stone Temple Pilots - Purple
Alice in Chains - Dirt
Tom Petty - Wildflowers
Guns N Roses - Appetite for Destruction
REM - Automatic for the People

I know there are plenty more that I am neglecting to mention, but these come to mind first.

Anyone ever heard of a band called "For Squirrels"? They came out with an album in 1995, then they got into a horrible car accident and the lead singer died, maybe another band member too...not sure. Anyways...great album.

Throwing Copper was a great choice, I can't believe I forgot about that one. Anyways, my old guitar player and I were actually hanging out and listening to a bunch of stuff, including For Squirrel's "Example" a few months back. They were a very solid band. Anyone remember "Son's of Elvis"?

You can roughly guess the age of the poster based on the records he chose. Nearly all of mine were issued between 1966 and 1968, and none later. So I'm older than most of you.

a pattern of classic rock band will generally age someone at over 50. Hair bands, or thrash metal, around or over 40(some may default to classic rock though). Grunge/Alternative, around or over 30. If someone has a good mix of hard-rock and rap, around or over 20. Now if anyone mentions Justin Bieber, it's a safe assumption that they are a 14 year old girl.

I'm 36 but mine is about 50/50 between stuff released before I was born and stuff that came out during my "prime". But, I do see how your theory works most of the time

I am 29 so it is pretty much spot on for me.

Although my love for 60's music as well comes directly from my dad...

Yeah, the Classic rock is in everyone's blood from our parents. Plus, it was kinda trendy in the mid to late 90's. It was the AIC and tool that gave you away though Beatle's Guy.

Anyways, according to that theory. Staate had a pretty good variety in his list, but at the heart of it, I'd guess he was around or a few years over 30. Tiger's probably in his early-mid 20's, and Griffin's is probably around 50ish. Judson may be around or early 40's. Am I incorrect about anyone yet?

We really should get this back to the original purpose of the thread though.

For some reason I had a feeling you'd be the guy to throw this whole thing off. The Rise Against was the killer. There's a good amount of people our age that are pretty big into them.

Pegged it at 42 for me - there was a theory going around that whatever you listen to at age 19 is probably what you stick with. I like to think that I've kept an open mind and ears - and having a younger bro-in-law who had a record label for a while (Harvey Danger and Luna) helped - has kept me interested in newer stuff - Decembrists, Arcade Fire, New Pornographers, Architecture in Helsinki, Minus the Bear, etc... But, admittedly, only four of my top 15 are post 1995

The age 19 rule is pretty good. Mine is generally, that if someone were asked to list their favorite all time albums, a good chunk of the albums listed will probably fall within a 3-5 year window. That window is usually age 14-19 for that individual.

I graduated HS in '98 thus my preference for the Grunge/Alternative bands, but I generally like a little of everything. Old-new, light-hard, if it's good, it's good. But our preferences always stand tall..

For the albums I chose between 1966 and 1968, I was at the ages 14 to 16. The theory holds.

Similarly, I graduated in '96. But at the time, music wasn't huge for me, so I'd listen to top-40 and hip hop and whatever dance/rap/R&B was playing in the clubs. After I got married in 2004, something changed and I started listening to more alternative/punk and wish I had started earlier cuz I like a lot of the stuff that came out in the '96-early 2000s timeframe. Fast, melodic, and aggressive. And if it has a good message, all the much better!

Little Feat. That's a band I wasn't expecting to see on this thread. I got to see them in concert last year and have been hooked ever since. Have you heard "Join the Band"? The collaboration list reads like a Grammy Awards registry.

Barry- You are right," Freak Out" is great !! In fact, I like most all of their older stuff........" Over-Nite Sensation" has the song "Dirty Love" which is great....and "Zoot Allures" has a song I like called "Wino Man",,,,,I like the rest of the songs on the albums too.

David- I haven't heard "Join The Band", in fact the album "Dixie Chicken" was one I had when I was a lot younger, and I haven't heard it in quite awhile. I just always thought to myself "this is a great band here", and when I think of albums that are great pieces of work, this one comes to mind.

Apologies to the OP,,,,,,,,didn't mean to take this thread in the wrong direction. I have so many albums I like in so many types of music this thread was easy for me to "sidetrack" on.......my apologies.

Sincerely, Clayton

Barry - it's interesting you mentioned Forever Changes. I always thought it was pretty obscure. A few years back my son bought the CD plus a more recent reunion live CD. It was kind of a concidence as he wasn't aware that I had it in vinyl.

Mark- Love is one of those bands that is almost entirely forgotten, although they were briefly in the news about five years ago when Arthur Lee died. They had other good albums too, especially Da Capo.

Now we're talking - great topic. There are a few blues albums that would crack my top ten, but no one here has probably heard of them. However, 'Stone Crazy' cannot be left out.

In no particular order, if I could only have these 10 to listen to, I would be okay, and I didn't even include any Zeppelin:

Exile on Main Street
Dark Side of the Moon
Beatles VI
Ladies of the Canyon
Buddy Guy - Stone Crazy
Seventh Sojourn
The Doors
Dylan - Blood on the Tracks
Electric Ladyland
Wheels of Fire

Sean, you reminded me of others. Don't think I could get by with only ten - would need at least these 2 in addition. The news song by S & G really brings back the 60's for me. Our soccer team used to practice to Waiata.

Split Enz - Waiata
Simon & Garfunkle - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Time
