I'm just going to do a musical calender since I started getting big on music in like 2003. Basically document your music history over the course of your life by naming a band or artist who dominated the music you listened to in that year. It can be anyone but it might be interesting to see how everyone's taste developed. Try to keep it to max 2 or 3 artists a year.

Inspired by the thread I necrobumped

2003: Blink-182, The Offspring
2004: Green Day
2005: Trivium, System of a Down
2006: My Chemical Romance, Avenged Sevenfold
2007: Fall Out Boy
2008: Bullet For My Valentine, Atreyu (cringe yes)
2009: A Day To Remember, Muse
2010: Set Your Goals, The Wonder Years
2011: Architects, The Story So Far
2012: Taylor Swift, Balance and Composure
2013: Taylor Swift
2014: Taylor Swift
2015: ? ? ?

Yes I need new artists to listen to

I'm not going to do that because it'll have some variety at first, but then they'll all be the same after a few years.

And because it requires thinking, and I'd rather not do that right now.

I don't really get most of the new emo trend. The only stuff I can get into from it is B&C and I don't even know if they're considered in it.

Uh... well... I've listened to hundreds of artists over the years, and no one or two in particular have ever dominated a full year of listening.

I think you need to broaden your horizons.

I'd say during my late middle school through high school years, 2001-2006, I was really big into bands like System of a Down, Disturbed, Chevelle, Life of Agony, Collective Soul, Mudvayne, Sublime, Goo Goo Dolls, Bullet for my Valentine, Blue October, Radiohead, and then I got into Blind Guardian, Iron Maiden, Iced Earth, Katatonia, Paradise Lost, Kamelot, Dream Theater, Epica, and Edguy in my late high school years. I haven't listened to most of that music since then, except Dream Theater, Radiohead, Iron Maiden, and I still listen to some Iced Earth and Katatonia now and then.

But I've pretty much always listened to anything I grew up with in the '90s, plus all the classic rock and metal bands, and '80s pop and rock my parents listened to. And of course throughout the years I've listened to a variety of rap and hip-hop, like Nelly, Eminem, DMX, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, etc. but that's generally just in social settings. Never really liked listening to that kind of music when I'm by myself.

Do you really not have any music you associate with a particularly period of your life? I can associate bands and even certain albums with periods of my life so that's really how I feel about it. Obviously I was listening to more than just a single artist for an entire year but the ones listed are the ones that stand out as defining that time period.

I can't remember years, so I'll use school grades:

grade 7: linkin park
grade 8: blink 182, sum 41, greenday, etc
grade 9: NOFX, Anti flag, propagandhi
grade 10: dead kennedys, andrew jackson jihad
grade 11: similar to grade 10 but adding more crust and hardcore: the holy mountain, ekkaia
grade 12: more of the same + some metal, children of bodom, at the gates, agalloch
Uni: more hardcore and metal: Fall of Efrafa, Burzum, Maths, Orchid, Converge, Windir
Now: more metal + Rome and Goatcraft, paysage d'hiver, cruiciamentum, drudkh, movie soundtracks
#32
2007: Guitar Hero II music, Avenged Sevenfold
2008: All Time Low
2009: blink-182, Muse
2010: blink-182, The Boys of Summer
2011: Fang Island, Maybeshewill, Tycho
2012: American Football, Nujabes
2013: TTNG, Melt-Banana
2014: lovesliescrushing, Invalids, Sun Kil Moon

I tried to pick bands that represented the sounds I preferred those years
#34
Pre-2004 - Crowded House, Chet Atkins and Linda Rondstadt (My Dad's favs so I listened too)
2004 - Crowded House, Green Day
2005 - Green day, Led Zep
2006 - Green Day, Crowdies
2007 - MCR, Megadeth, Metallica, Fall Out Boy, The Hestons (My emo/metal phase)
2008 - Eskimo Joe, Coldplay, Pete Murray
2009 - Tommy Emmanuel, (this is the year I think I started growing up)
2010 - Lior, Jet, Nick Charles, RHCP, Nirvana, Metallica
2011 - The Living End, The Who, The Beatles, Cat Stevens
2012 - Radiohead, Muse, Phantom of the Opera
2013 - Bach, Toto, Split Enz
2014 - Kingswood, Tesseract, Beethoven

Man this was actually kinda hard. These are just the dominant artists in my life - Crowded House still are, but MCR haven't been a part of it since 2008. I've realised I tend to learn a heap of songs by a particular band in some kind of obsessive guitar marathon, then I move on. So I was into Tommy Emmanuel before 2009 but I only started learning his stuff then. Same with Living End. And some of my fav bands aren't on this list ;p

I've been wondering - how old were you guys when you really started paying attention to music? I was probably about 10.

9th: grunge and 90s mostly
10th: metalcore, scenecore, crabcore, risecore, 'melodic hardcore' (top kek), post-hardcore
11th: more post-hardcore, deathcore, techdeath, djent, Sumeriancore, progcore, basically all those really pretentious self proclaimed 'progressive metal' core bands like Born of Osiris
12th to now: even more post-hardcore, un-shitty pop-punk, emo, shoegaze, electronic, post-rock, hardcore, experimental stuff, fall of troy core

still top cringe

I once listened to old-time music. You know, with fiddles, banjos, guitars and the like.

I still listen to old-time music, just slightly more inebriated now when I do.
