Music That Changed Your Life Forever?

What's a band, or a group, or a musician that when you listened to them, just compelled you in such a way that you can't even describe other than life-changing?

I've got two:
Alter Bridge
and
Jeff Buckley.

Alter Bridge, just because when I first listened to AB III, it struck a chord with me because the entire album is about questioning one's own faith, and I was dealing with things at the time that had me questioning everything I knew.

And Jeff Buckley...my God, his voice. His music. Can't even describe how it makes me feel.


How bout you guys?

Tool blew my mind. That song Sober touched my heart. That line "step I take" is a metaphor for how our generation is built around watching TV instead of going out and exercising and with that is proof of the brainwashing our government is doing through the TV to our youth.

The line "I will chew it up and leave" is about the obesity of our culture. We are built around materialism and materialism = food. By eating tons of food, we become fat.

The best line ever in the entire song is "trust in me". This line is clearly about how we're being lied to by the government and about 9-11. Clearly the fascist US government is to blame.

Red Hot Chili Peppers, When my dad bought Californication and played it in his car stereo is a very distinct moment in my music history. To this day they are still my favourite band.

Johann Sebastian Bach made me realize that music is horizontal, not vertical. That changed everything.

Honestly, I was like 12 or 13 or something, and it was the first time that I heard music and lyrics that were that personal. I mean, before him, I don't think I paid lyrics as much attention as I do now.

If it wasn't for him, I would have never looked at music differently. It would have never become as important to me as it is now. I'd have never picked up an instrument. You know. All that.

I feel like if I hadn't heard songs like this as a kid, I'd have still been a gamer, a car nut, etc. My taste in music would never have developed in the way it did.

First off, AC/DC. I may not listen to them any more, but they were the band that got me into music. They're the reason I started playing guitar. And while I absolutely abhor their music now, I'll never forget the influence the had on me when I was 12. Or 13, I forget...

Then there's The Black Dahlia Murder. They were the first band with screaming vocals that I got into. Which puts me where I am today, in a band with plenty of screaming and breakdowns and whatnot

I've got 3.

Randy Rhoads - He is the player that made me want to learn how to play.

Jimi Hendrix - His playing/songwriting speaks to my heart like no other.

King's X - When I first discovered them, I felt as though I had found the sound I'd been hearing in my head for many years. Hearing them confirmed to me that you could be heavy, melodic, and have lots of groove.

Rhandy rhodes, the man who got me playing guitar,
Iommi the god father of the heavy riff, a reminder that I don't need to vomit down a billion notes to sound heavy as ****.
Gilmore a reminder that you don't need sweeps and other bs to make a solo epic as ****.
Death, Showed me metal can be heavy and progressive at the same time and they were not mutually exclusive.
I have more but I don't feel like typing it out

Well, two big ones stand out.

I've always been into classic rock, and I think I have my dad to thank for that. The band that first got me really into music, in my early teens, was The Rolling Stones. I remember hearing "Sympathy for the Devil" for the first time, and just being fascinated by all that was going on.

My tastes developed and refined, and eventually I found Pink Floyd. Started with DSotM and other random songs I happened to see on YouTube. Eventually I realized that I didn't just like the album, I liked their sound. I bought up most of their albums, and have really been in love with their music ever since.

Even after that, though, I decided that who I really liked was David Gilmour--Pink Floyd's guitarist--because of his writing and music styles, and of course the way he plays. So I got his solo stuff as well.

No other musician has been able to impact me emotionally as often or consistently as Gilmour, and I think that's why my respect for him is seemingly limitless.

i wouldn't say it changed my life but Immolation.

The part in Passion kill (from Shadows in the light) that goes:

God will embrace you
God will raise you
God will comfort you
God will save you

God will punish you
God will torture you
God will silence you
God will destroy you

For some reason those lyrics really struck a chord with me as do all their lyrics for that matter.Also Ross Dolan has a ****in' awesome voice.

Death metal in general has changed my life for the better then any one thing/band could ever have.
