Judas priest-Painkiller the whole album
Motorhead - We are the Road Crew song

You're quite right. There are a lot of different styles in rock and roll...

posted by  flesh

Haha, well Cliffy already mentioned it's not all metal.

I really listen to a bunch of different things (that aren't quite as hard/metallic as those lol). Stuff like Our Lady Peace, Three Days Grace, Default and a bunch of others, just didn't think they really fit into this thread lol. I like anything except country, opera, and classical... but I guess that's a typical teenager (only like some rap... and mostly just for the bass). :mrgreen:

posted by  car_crazy89

I mostly listen to rock too man, but I listen to eminem because his rhymes are just freaking awesome ... other than that it's mostly punk and alt-rock, sometimes if i feel like it i'll listen to old paul simon songs ... and weezer

posted by  musclecarneon

I'll add You CAn't Always Get What You Want.

Anything by the Beatles is great, no doubt, but i think some of Elton John's songs can be considered great too. i.e. "Your Song", "Rocket Man", "Tiny Dancer", etc...
