Three Days Grace got me into music in general.

Trivium got me into heavy music.

King Crimson made me look at music with a much more open mind.

Vehemence completely changed my views on music.

My father is a huge Chili Peppers fan.. I remember being young as **** and watching the music video for Californication with him on one of those old wooden televisions and the music blowing my mind.. Also, hearing stuff like Scar Tissue and Soul to Squeeze (which was the first song I really listened to and is still my favourite song) on the car radio whenever he picked me up from school really got me going.. I kinda stopped listening to music except for occasionally listening to the top 40 crap until I was like 12 or something and heard Soul to Squeeze again and it brought back all these memories and stuff. That guitar riff made me want to learn how to play the instrument and really shaped me into being as fond of music as I am now. To this day I kinda tear up a bit when I hear that last chorus cause of the beauty in it and the profound impact it has had on my life. Sounds corny but I don't care, I ****ing love that track.

I can think of two bands that have had a big impact on my life and how I've lead it:

1) Pink Floyd - I was brought up with their music, I'm fairly sure they had a large impact on both of my parent's lives, too. I can remember asking to see The Wall quite desperately when I was about 5 years old. I couldn't understand why my parents wouldn't let me watch it .

Theirs was some of the first music I went to when I first started learning to play and I still love playing them. Funnily enough, years later, I found out that my dad spent some of his youth DJing for a pirate radio station, he said: "It was a pretty good job, the hardest part was deciding which side of DSotM to play".

2) Tool blew my mind. I remember the first track I heard was Disgutipated, when I was 14 - I was shown it by a senior at the boarding school and it really blew my mind! Partially, I think it was the novelty of it that first got my attention but hearing it once was enough to change my listening habits. Somehow, they just broadened my musical horizons and I then learned to truly appreciate music. I won't go into all of the bizarre reflections I've had from Tool as ye have heard it all before.

Queens of the stone age are the reason i picked up a guitar. There are many more artists but that is what i instantly think of when someone asks me this question.

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

In chronorder:
Queen (got me into music, still my favorite band)

Cradle of Filth (don't judge, From the Cradle to Enslave was the coolest thing I'd ever heard in high school)

Bad Brains (got me into punk, still play in a punk band)

Mastodon (changed my drumming forever)

Gothenburg Melodeath as a genre (huge influence on my guitar playing, auditioned for music university with a Dark Tranquility song)
The Antioch Antioxidant Accident - Experimental metal

Deranged Youth - Melodic punk/grind

I have a music degree so you can believe everything I say.

As a musician, I have yet to have a listening experience like my first time through F♯ A♯ ∞ and Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven. Has totally changed what I know about music.

Hate to sound cliché, but Metallica changed my life.

So did Sabbath, Purple, Maiden and Priest.

And Britney Spears. She made me hate girls.

Hmm lemme see: the first band I ever got into was Linkin Park, and even to this day listening to Hybrid Theory or Meteora brings me back tbh.
Then I remember getting into some hard rockish bands like Sevendust and Godsmack. I don't really remember much because those bands didn't really have an impression on me.
I remember that the first song I ever listened to with harsh vocals was Mortal Share by Insomnium. I loved the song and soon after that I downloaded the whole album. To this day it's probably one of my favourite albums ever.
Then somehow I got into Slipknot, through a friend of mine if I recall correctly, and becam basically a fanboy, allways spouting bullshit about them that noone cared.
The I think I got into Metalcore, with All that Remains, and Bullet for my valentine and other bullshit bands like that. My -core phase, let's call it that, lasted until the end of 2009, when I got sick of deathcore/metalcore in general and started looking for real Death Metal band: gonna explain why in a while (I got bored with it because I felt all the bands I listened to were way to similar, and it got harder to find stuff I really liked. Since I already liked DF and the likes by then, I decided to look further into real DM. I remember wiping my MP3 and hard drive clean, like the end of an era ;_; )
Shortly after getting into -core, I listened to my first ever Death song(Lack of comprehension), and basically they became my favourite band evah. They still are today to an extent lol.
Then somehow I got into Dying Fetus, Nile and Misery Index. Dying Fetus was important because I got to enjoy NY DM with them, and consequently Slam Death Metal. With Nile I got interested in other, more typical DM bands that every DM fan knows like CC, Morbid Angel, Immolation, etc. Misery Index got me hooked on Deathgrind, and consequently Grindcore (weird transition, but yeah I know.).
The first slam band I ever heard and enjoyed was Ingested, with their debut album. Don't ask me why, but they just struck a chord with me. I can't even listen to that album now, ****ing tame deathcorish slam. My first actual Brutal Death band was Guttural Secrete, and I still like those insane ****ers. After Ingested I got into Devourment, Katalepsy, Cephalotripsy (I don't care for them now, boooring), and other slam bands I can't really remember. I was huge on slam, and basically just listened to that genre for a few months lol. I still dig it, but not nearly as much.
At last, In got into Grindcore. Decided to check Napalm Death, because I knew they were the pionneers of it and got hooked on them: FETO is so ****ing sweet. Then I ventured into a bunch of bands that I don't really feel like mentioning because I have to pick up my dinner, I'm hungry as ****.

EDIT: forgot to ad smth
