    Mark Knopfler.
    Current album - Sailing to Philadelphia
    otherwise known for his great work with Dire Straits (Money for Nothing).

    My brother's got me hooked on the new Nickelback Cd too.

    >>> Current album - Sailing to Philadelphia

    That is a good album isn't it. I was never a fan, but I bought that for my wife, and have listened to it many times myself. Even the songs I don't particulaly like have some detail about them which makes then worth listening to.

    And I agree with a few others in this thread, "non of the above".

    you guys are a bunch of whining babies... I personally listen to almost all of those bands. Nirvana... blow it where the sun don't shine. Yeah... they had good music.. but their leader was a crack addict and blew his own brains out... yeah, great leader... good image for the kids.

    Those are all excellent... but you have to have a wide range of musical taste... I listen to country too.. classical is reserved for paper-writing and hardcore studying.

    I guess what I listen to depends largely on what I'm doing.

    I own a couple of the CDs up there (Sum 41, Disturbed, and Linkin Park) and the only one of them I really like is Linkin Park. Great coding music...

    Right now I'm listening to Coldplay. I normally listen to either that, Dave Matthews, Tool, Radiohead, or the radio.

    I still don't get Nirvana (sorry static...). Their music was okay, but was never anything special to me... I don't own any flannels.

    adrianxw-
    Knopfler's other solo disc is very good as well. "Golden Heart."
    That's the one that got me really hooked on him.

    The music I generally prefer to listen to is instrumental but I agree that it's good to have a broad taste in music. Most of the bands in the poll are great at what they do. However, a great deal of music is commercial now (i.e. boy and girl bands) while the best musicians are playing in small venues and are hard to hear about.

    playing right now:
    Only the strong - Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
    (from the mazda commercial)

    Kurt wasn't a crack-addict, he was addicted to
    heroin. Good image for kids? Why would anybody
    listen to music based on whether or not the
    songwriter was a 'good image for kids?'

    crack/heroin... what's the difference?

    so you think that it was perfectly normal for him to be a heroin addict and make a nationally televised event out of his own suicide? What kind of message do you think that sends? And if he acted like most artists do today on stage, would you let your kids go to their concerts?

    maybe none of this bothers you because either you don't care or you're involved in it yourself, but we're going to end up surrounded by a bunch of burnt out hippies like our parents generation because people don't have self control and they "go with the flow", to use a cliche.........

    wow... how did I end up on that??? *psycho tangent for the day*

    He didn't make his suicide a nationally televised
    event. The press did. I don't think he had much
    control over the press after he was dead...

    I have plenty of self-control, baby.
