So I know this sounds revolutionary and stuff.... but how do you people breach into other genres of music?

anyone go a bit crazy for Drum and Bass? or love the riddims of hardcore Ragga?


let us what other music you listen to.... or if you don't give a few bands here a try.


My most recent dabblings (over the past year or so) are heavy Dub (which quite a ffew british punk bands are exploring too, Inner terrestrials, Suicide Bid, P.A.I.N, etc) and some crazy Ragga. Check out a bit of Capleton, or Sizzla..... They make some mega Bass-heavy reggae and rhyme over the top... MINT
someone recommend a few easy songs for me to get to grips with.... I'm new and pretty shitty

I listen to all sorts of music. At the moment I am listening to Jonathan Richman...not exactly very punk.

I also like dub, reggae, ska, folk, jazz, blues, indie, hardcore, grindcore, thrash, drum&bass, dubstep, psychedelic, glam rock, classical. Pretty much any genre, but punk stands as the core of my music taste.

Well as far as drum& Bass goes I like Noisia, Apex, Spor, Vicious Circle.

Dub reggae, I love the old stuff like King Tubby, King Jammy, Lee Perry, Augustus Pablo. I'm also getting into lover's rock

Folk -It doesn't get but better than Phil Ochs, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen.

New indie bands I really like are The Veils, Hatcham Social and Vampire Weekend.

The no.1 grindcore band of all time is Discordance Axis

The Kinks are my most favourite band ever.

I like Psychedelic Rock, some prog, and lately I've been listening to the Jesus and Mary Chain, and Mudhoney.

Jesus and Mary Chain are wicked. Listening to Psychocandy is what I imagine it is like to listen to the Ramones through a really bad cd player whilst high on loads of ketamine.

I'm not including any ska, post-punk, proto-punk, or new wave bands.

British invasion:
I like The Beatles, The Yardbirds, and The Who, as well as a few more.

Rockabilly:
Jerry Lee Lewis, Bill Haley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochrin, The Stray Cats

Pop-punk (the kind that aren't allowed to be discussed in this forum):
Green Day. Lately, I've gotten into Blink 182 a little bit. And just yesterday, I realized that Bowling For Soup aren't as bad as I thought.

Reggae and Dub:
I would really like to listen to more of this because I love The Clash's dubbish stuff, but right now I don't have much of it. I've only heard one Bob Marley song I like. I'm probably going to get some albums by King Tubby, Mikey Dread, and Lee Perry sometime fairly soon.

Folk:
Johnny Cash. Bob Dylan is OK too.

Surf:
Dick Dale, The Ventures

Other various bands:
The Doors, My Chemical Romance, Pink Floyd, The Mars Volta, Modest Mouse, Queen, The Raconteurs, The White Stripes, early U2
