List the bands you first started listening to as a young'n and then the ones you currently listen to see how tings have changed..

Looking back I suppose I
the first EVER CD I started listening to was Aqua... but that was ages ago then Blink 182 and Byan Adams a while after. Now days I mostly listen to Refused, Mastodon, Radiohead and Pink Floyd as well as many others.. So how about you UG?

When I was much younger I was in love with every one of the Backstreet Boys.

Now I'm in love with Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington.

The first CD I ever bought, when I was seven years old, was the Turtles Greatest Hits. I also listened to the Beach Boys a lot when I was little.

Hit middle school, went into a classic rock stage. Listened to Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Cheap Trick, Boston, and Cream, to name a few.

Still love them, but now listen to a lot more metal (thanks largely to the influence of UG). Dream Theater, Opeth, Symphony X, etc.

I started off with those 3 because of my Mum and her lovely vinyls.
I mean I started off waaaaay young.

I now have part of the vinyl collection in my room XD

I love it ^__^

Well growing up I listened to all of the popular 90's stuff. Everclear, Eagle Eye Cherry, Sugar Ray, etc. I still listen to all of that 90's alt from time to time, but I mostly listen to stuff like Pink Floyd, Muse, Coheed and Cambria, Incubus, and The Mars Volta. Lately I've started dabbling a little bit more into folk-rock type stuff though...
#12
i would need a flow chart to map this out. i've gone from knowing every beatles song ever written when i was like 5 to being an ashlee simpson fan at like 8 and completely forgetting beatles and stones and zeppelin to being a creed/staind fan at like 10/11 and then getting back into beatles/zeppelin and the whole brittish movement and then into old 70s prog. rock then some old folk and blues and now more modern stuff has come back in again like rhcp, mars volta coheed and cambria, incubus, black keys, white stripes

Running away from this earth.
May it pass away in the beautiful flames that it was created for.
Because when tomorrow fails to come,
today is just not the same.
Inflamed earth.
Roses.
In this hope.
For all i care set it all ablaze.

Country music (forced to)>Rap music>Linkin Park>Various modern rock bands/nu metal/alternative>classic rock>thrash metal>all kinds of metal>jazz/classical/blues>PROGRESSIVE

Pretty much the last one is the only thing I listen to now a days, I feel I have been through the rest and reached the pinnacle of the music listening experience (for me).

First was Aerosmith, AC/DC, et al. Then I moved into punk. Then it was into metal, jazz, and classical - all at once. Then I said, "Fuck it - progressive rock all the way! "

So now I'm a Rush dork.
