    Hmm, I really like Kaisers Orchestra, a norwegian band. Very hard to classify though, slightly \"rock-y\" but with orchestral instruments and weird lyrics sung in an impregnable norwegian dialect. Rammstein are good too. For Jazzy things I like Funky butt, another norwegian band, but it\'s very hard to get any of their stuff anywhere.

    How about Bolt Thrower? Warhammer music!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UURcc2fH1iQ&feature=related

    Or Heaven Shall Burn an awesome band from Germany (no they are not anti religion) They are my favorite band. All thier music is about politics and stuff. This one is about the Warsaw uprising of 1944. If you look in the description part its got the lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1dZCUVqj-s
    This one is about Victor Jara who was a singer and songwriter in Chile who was killed when Pinochet took power. The whole story is pretty terrible. But heres the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AfiN2RmZcU

    Amon Amarth is also good. (More viking stuff and the name comes from LOTR)

    Soilwork is also good:

    (probably the most \"not extreme metal fan\" friendly of all of them)

    MMMM, grunge...I like a lot of stuff, but as for a favorite genre, grunge is what I grew up with and is very close to my heart.

    Nirvana (early stuff is best)
    Alice in Chains (you\'ve probably heard stuff off of their \"Dirt\" album)
    Soundgarden (It\'s all good)

    This should get you started. If you like Soundgarden, you might also want to check out Audioslave - It\'s the lead singer from Soundgarden with the musicians from Rage Against the Machine.

    Oh, I forgot - I don\'t know what your religious persuasions are (if any) so don\'t take offense, but I\'m also into the heavier Christian rock bands:

    Flyleaf - a great band with a really good female vocalist
    Plumb - hard and grinding
    Kutless - good alternative rock

    You can hear more at www.effectradio.com (which I usually have open whenever I\'m browsing).

    I can\'t say i have a genre i like so i can\'t help you find your genre Liz. I just listen to what i like, sometimes that\'s just 1 song from a group. But bands i really like you can check out, that you may not have heard of before, include;

    Nick Cave - Need i say more again?

    In Nomine - German tech/metal . Mitternacht is one of his best i think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVJjPHZ4gd0

    Mike Oldfield - His Moonlight Shadows is good with some nice covers. Just know he\'s best known for Tubuler bells. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bOLkPbPCbk

    Blue October - Emo... but catchy and a guilty pleasure of mine.

    Nightwish - Finish metal. Their old stuff is just all over the place from opera to cookie monster rock. One of their best old songs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qiZ9ULkq1xM

    Gackt - J-pop at it\'s best. No idea what the man says but his voice could melt butter... plus the guy is just sexy and no i\'m not gay. His Malice Mizer stuff is good also. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzN_GdknWIo

    White Zombie / Rob Zombie - Hard rock, kinda an aquired taste i guess.

    Lords of Acid - techo type... ugh i\'ll just let you youtube them as most of their songs are ugh... innuendo to outright dirty.

    Marty Robbins - Some true old skool country music and one of the greatest voices in my opinion.

Lyrics wise, I hold Nick Cave as one of the greatest. His lyrics are very literary and poetic, without getting awkward and pretentious. He might not be the best singer, technically, but he\'s got a distinct, personal style of singing and for me that is more important.

    You might want to skip his earlier stuff, though. Great as it is, it\'s quite chaotic and a bit of an aquired taste and might not be the best place to start. But, if you start off with something from the 90s or later you\'ll get a better idea if this is something for you or not.

    Here\'s a youtube clip of one of many favourite songs of mine:

    Nice taste in music Ritual! I\'m also a big Nick Cave fan! I went to the same school as him in Melbourne as a kid.

    If you\'re digging Nick Cave I\'d also recommend Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and a cool Aussie band called The Dirty Three. You\'ll love it! Also, if you need some music to soothe the soul I\'d suggest some Stevie Ray Vaughan and also some Bach and Handel just to name a few. Check out some Derek Trucks too. His band rocks!!

    Happy listening and painting!

    That\'s Warren Ellis\'s old band, right? He\'s part of the Bad Seeds now (and also a member of Grinderman, Cave\'s garage rock band). I remember seeing Nick Cave solo once (without the Bad Seeds) and The Dirty Three opened for him. Good stuff!

    If you want something more atmospheric I can recommend Dead Can Dance (another Aussie band). They are incredible musicians and vocalists and mix medieval, barroque, classical, folk, world music (and a bit of new wave on the early recordings) in a very unique way. Also, check out Lisa Gerrard\'s (vocalist and multi-instrumentalist of Dead Can Dance) solo works and film soundtracks (she\'s done music for The Insider, Gladiator, Whale Rider etc.). Really good stuff!

    Ooh, second Tom Waits, too. He\'s great. Rain Dogs is a superb album - his lyrics are really good too.

    Talking Heads, Brian Eno :D

    You sure know your Aussie bands! Yep - That\'s Warren Ellis\'s old band. He\'s a very c00l fiddle/violin player!

    Tim Rogers and Paul Kelly are also great Australian musicians with so much good music! I highly recommend those guys too!

    Default Tom Waits!!!

    Hey Bill - good to see you have great taste in music!

    This is such a killer version of Summertime by Tom Waits from Austin City Limits in 1978.

    Wow, this has given ME a few things to go out and look for.

    Personally, I like pretty much everything. But when the :cussing: and I separated, I went back to the 60s and 70s, as most everything was upbeat. Can\'t listen to any country anymore, and am avoiding rap. But older hard rock was soothing during that time: KISS, Iron Maiden, etc.

    Now I\'m drifting back into my old fave of 80s.

    However the last couple of days talking to the :cussing: is making me want to start listening to some death metal.:moon:

    Now THIS is one of my FAVORITES!

    If you want to get people talking, music, religion and politics are always sure bets.
