  • Favorite bands are My Chemical Romance and The Used. My Chemical Romance....ahhh I can't say enough about them, they're amazing, and The Used is great because lead singer Bert McKracken's "pretty" voice (for lack of a better word) can reach all sorts of beautiful notes, which contrasts with the music, and boy can he yell. (But it's GOOD yelling)

    Pandora.com tailors a playlist to your likes and dislikes, and you listen to bands that aren't that well known.

    Yahoomusic.com and aolmusic.com and mtv.com are all cool, if you just put on a video, once that video is done, it';'l select a random video, and then another and another, almost like it's on a "shuffle" of all the songs on their site. A bonus to this is that, while you're becoming acquainted with new music, you can see the band's music video, to see what the band looks like, and if they're artistic with videos and all that. You may not be into that, but I find that I appreciate a band or a song more if the music video means something, and isn't just them, singing in a stadium or something...

    Happy Listening!

    Hi. If you like r& b with a soulful voice and a good beat - check out Katharine McPhee's new CD- I really like most of the songs on the album, and I love listening to it while I'm commuting to work and singing along. :)

    I have really enjoyed new music by Van Zant f/k/a Lynyrd Skynyrd. Its a mixture between County and Southern Rock.

    If you have a favorite song or style of music, I would recommend


    This helps you find lots of new music similar in style to your favorite.

    I personally enjoy Panic! At the Disco, and would recommend it if you haven't heard it before. Also, the band Oasis is wonderful as well.
