Green Day, my bridge to Rancid and all that 90's punk. Then through AFI I got introduced to Minor Threat. These bands totally changed my life.

Paul Gilbert (Changed my view of the guitar forever. I didn't even know shred existed till then and inspired me to practice literally 10 hours a day.

Coheed and Cambria (I discovered their album 'No World for Tomorrow' and I thought it was corny sounding but at the time, I was pretty suicidal but it took my mind off everything happening at the time. And thought I didn't understand the Amory wars storyline that their music was based off, I felt like I understood it. And their music has always brought me to another place that seems familiar)

Nirvana, specifically In Utero. I would not be the person I am now had I not heard that record.

This.

Pink Floyd. They were the band that got me into music. Dark Side of the Moon was
the first album I owned. I absolutely loved it and still do... oh and Gilmour is the reason
I started playing guitar...

Elliott Smith... that man is simply amazing!

System of A Down: Got me into guitar when I was 12. Their music is strangely funky.

Nine Inch Nails: I was plagued by music like Nu-Metal, Rap, shit like that, and people did not like my music taste for it. We had a couple of research projects in Grade 9, and one of them I did on The Columbine Massacre. Apparently one of the albums "associated" with the massacre was The Downward Spiral. I listened to it out of interest, and it was nothing of what I expected. It changed my outlook on music and theory.

Nirvana: all of their music gave made writing songs easier for me.

Sonic Youth: Daydream Nation told me that when creating music you'd be better off going with wherever your heart goes. Even if it is a porn-groove-rap album. Just do it.

Kyuss: Blues For the Red Sun told me that you can very easily make a good song out of a couple riffs, or even one riff. Applies to Welcome to Sky Valley also.

Immortal Technique by far.

Check out this song and pay attention to the lyrics. Also, this one is just unreal.
Mandatory listen I tell you.

Primus, because I didn't think bass could be used in that way when I first heard it.
APC, because The Thirteenth Step is the most fantastic piece of music ever written.

Reflection by Tool is pretty much single-handedly responsible for my spirituality at this point. That shit woke something up in me.

Breaking Benjamin got me into listening to music frequently, rather than just grabbing my dad's iPod when we went for long car rides. They remain one of my favorite bands.

Rise Against got me to pick up the guitar, and though I don't remember how to play any of their songs, I listen to them quite a bit.

Guns N' Roses sparked my desire to play lead guitar, and turned me on to non-punk music, as that was mostly what I listened to back then. I still regard Appetite as one of the best albums of all time, and Slash is still one of my favorites, and a huge influence to the melodic side of my playing.

Dream Theater took the way I listened to, and wrote music, and turned it upside down. I haven't listened to anything the same since. They opened my eyes to synth being a viable instrument in a rock band. They inspired me to become a better guitar player and song writer. They're currently my favorite band, and John Petrucci is my top influence, both melodically, and technically.

I've had four major musical experiences with bands who open up my eyes, and I eagerly await the fifth.

Lil Wayne. When he said, "Excuse me, Mr. toilet, I am the shit," it blew me away. I never knew lyrics could be so personal, so meaningful, that it could completely change the way one views things. Weezy is what got me into emo music and music with personal lyrics such as American Football, Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate), and Hightide Hotel. He just brings so many feels.

If you want to go wayyyy back, when I was younger I remember my mom listening to all kinds of classic stuff like James Taylor's "Carolina in my Mind" and Donovan's "Catch the Wind" that influenced me into music before I even knew what that meant..

Around 10 years old, it was Avril Lavigne who made me say "whoa, girls can make rock?"

For awhile I listened to whatever music was cool... Fall Out Boy, Motion City Soundtrack... the lyrics were nonsense. Then I started listening to Jack Johnson and I was like, "whoa, songs can actually be about something important?!"

Then a few years later I got really into The Beatles... Joni Mitchell really influenced me, too, showing me you can be WAY out there and it still sounds awesome... I guess most recently, Alison Krauss & Union Station has expanded my horizons into bluegrass-y stuff I didn't used to listen to... I love music

When i was like 14 i found Nirvana, the first real band i started listening to religiously that put out pure music. I continue to listen to them, and they still influence me after I experiment with other genres
