Movies: who's your favourite band/artist?

I love films to death, but music was my first love. :)

So, what are your favorite albums? What band(s) do you enjoy listening to the most?

BQ: Do you play any instruments? Are you in a band?

BQ2: A movie you're planning to watch at the cinemas next? (if it's The Avengers, then a movie apart from that one)

BQ3: Favourite band/artist you discovered through film?

BQ4: Favourite music-related film?

BQ5: Could you recommend me a movie that you felt was great, despite its poor reviews?

Thanks for answering. :) :) :)

Update:

Hey guys, thanks for answering! So many great and detailed answers!

@Negative- that's so cool! That you're in a band, I mean. The Sopranos is a great show as well, I'll try to find that track, I'll check Spun out too. :D

@annyrutts- lol I love your answerr Rage against the Machine!Lamb of God!Pantera!Radioheadd!

Update 2:

Yeaaahhh booii! It's cool you play the guitar and a little keyboard, I wish I could play guitar. Much more cooler, and versatility than the violin. :/ And thanks for the suggestions, I'll check all those links out! :) :) :)

@SydtheSquid- that's a solid list! There's a few I haven't heard of before but if they're anything like your taste in music then I'm sure they're superb. I was thinking of (500) Days...when I wrote the BQ3 so it's ironic that you mentioned it, the soundtrack of that movie is really good too!

@Liam- Spinal Tap's a popular choice! And really great taste in music btw, pretty sure you'll love Madeleine's taste in music. :D I haven't seen the Southland Tales but I'll be sure to check it out! And! Saxophones are such nifty wee things! That's amazing! You're like Lisa Simpson then? :P

@Jack Nicholson- Hey!!! Lol I know what you mean about the piano it needs so much patience, the keyboard's slightly bett

Update 3:

slightly better though? The Graduate's old school! But I loved the movie so I'll def check that track out :) and two for Southland Tales! :D

((Emma))- Heyy! Your music taste is so varied! Dr Dre, The Beach Boys and The Temptations lol! Fantastic! I learnt the recorder in school too! I can play "Hot Cross Buns" pretty well :D lol. Oh yess, I don't think there'll be cinemas nearby since I'm moving to a secluded place but I'll run to the nearest theater if I have to, to watch Prometheus!!! I haven't seen 'Final Cut' so I'll add that to my watchlist :) Should be great! And "Cupid" by Sam Cooke is so chilll! I'll listen to more stuff by him definitely :D

@Suicidal- Hey! Thankyouu :) I've never heard of Neutral Milk Hotel but SydtheSquid mentioned them too so I'll give them a listen. :) And Jane's Addiction as well. I love the Spiderman movies so much! My inner nerd is unleashed when I talk about the comics and mov

Update 4:

the comics and movies, seriously. Idgaf about the reviews for them :P Will for suree watch Mimic, I had never heard about the movie till now.

@Harrison Ford- Hello! I love My bloody Valentine so muchhh! and The Dark Side of the Moon's my fav PF album as well, you listen to a lot of really classy bands! I have the Twin Peaks OST, Angelo Badalamenti's a highlight for sure!

@Leprosy- Hey! I love Death to death! Lol, they're my all-time favourite band :) :) :) and you're in a band too? Heck frickin' yes! Lmao and this line made me spit out my drink "Listening to the album Season of the Dead by Necrophagia is just like watching a horror film"

Update 5:

So.True. The riffs sound exactly like they were lifted off of a horror movie! Great answer. :D

Thanks all.

    These are my favorite albums of my favorite bands:

    Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band- The Beatles

    White Blood Cells- The White Stripes

    London Calling- The Clash

    The Ramones- The Ramones

    In The Aeroplane Over the Sea- Neutral Milk Hotel

    The Queen is Dead- The Smiths

    Merriweather Post Pavilion- Animal Collective

    Greatest Hits- Queen (Even though it is not a studio album, it is still one of my favorite things to listen to)

    BQ- I play guitar and trumpet (although I have not picked up my trumpet in a while). I am not in a band.

    BQ2- Well obviously it's the Avengers. Other than that, although I will probably see something like Dark Shadows or The Dictator between now and then, I definitely plan on watching Men in Black 3, despite the fact that I'm not in love with the trailer. I would not be surprised if it ended up sucking. However, I am a fan of the series so I won't miss it.

    BQ3- The Smiths in (500) Days of Summer.

    BQ4- Definitely This is Spinal Tap! Another one is Dazed and Confused. Even though it's not exactly about music, it's one of my favorite movies that has one of my favorite soundtracks.

    BQ5- Men in Black 2. It probably came to mind because I've been thinking about the new one, but I have always really enjoyed this movie not quite, but almost as much as the first one. It's a really fun movie even though it has a 39% on Rotten Tomatoes.

  • hey Marina! Great question.

    My favourite band of all time is Smashing Pumpkins, and I listen to them the most. I find their music to suit any mood I'm in.

    Anyway, some of my favourite albums are (I'll limit one per band)

    Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness- Smashing Pumpkins

    Downward Spiral- Nine Inch Nails

    In The Aeroplane Over The Sea- Neutral Milk Hotel

    Live Through This- Hole

    Sister- Sonic Youth

    The Holy Bible- Manic Street Preachers

    Antichrist Superstar- Marilyn Manson

    Nothing's Shocking- Jane's Addiction

    Terror Twilight- Pavement

    Rage Against The Machine Self Titled

    Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables- Dead Kennedys

    Blood Sugar Sex Magik- RHCP

    BQ: Sadly, no (: I tried to play the acoustic guitar, but I never practiced

    BQ2: Dark Shadows

    Moonrise Kingdom

    The Dark Knight Rises

    Unsure completely about release dates

    BQ3: Natural Born Killer's brilliant soundtrack made me discover Jane's Addiction

    BQ4: Almost Famous, definately!

    BQ5: Well, I have a very soft spot in my heart for Spiderman 3 :) But I was quite impressed with The Butterfly Effect despite its flaws. Also... Guillermo Del Toro's ''Mimic'' has a 5.8 rating on imdb and I think its an enjoyable film!

    :)

    edit: OH you should def give Neutral Milk Hotel a listen! I'd add links, but sadly I'm at school (:. Hope you enjoy Mimic. And stuff the reviews :)

    ((marina)) hello!

    And snap, music was my first love too :)

    My favourite albums (of all time!) -

    Psychedelic Shack - The Temptations

    Live at the Harlem Square Club - Sam Cooke

    Portrait of a Legend - Sam Cooke

    Come Find Yourself - Fun Lovin' Criminals

    2001 - Dr Dre

    Pet Sounds - The Beach Boys

    Parallel Lines - Blondie

    The State of Things - Reverend and the Makers

    Pulp Fiction soundtrack (it is one of the best albums I own!)

    I also love Roy Orbison and Queen (well mainly Freddie Mercury, loooove him). Oh and Eric Burdon, I love his solo work and love when he was in The Animals and War. He had such a bluesy, soulful voice and the mix of blues and rock just worked so well!

    BQ: Never been in a band, can't play any instruments. I did learn the recorder at school!

    BQ2: Prometheus. Rarely go to the cinema to be honest, but can't wait for this!!

    BQ3: Sam Cooke "the man who discovered soul" :) I absolutely loved the film 'Inner Space' when I was a kid and it featured two Sam Cooke songs, one being 'Cupid' which I adored. I bought an album for the song and the rest is history, Sam Cooke has been my favourite artist since I was a teenager :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r01rjeTAwf8

    Youtube thumbnail

    BQ4: Human Traffic perhaps. If I think of a better one I'll edit :) do love that film though!

    BQ5: Oh goodness, I'm not sure. I never really read reviews. Hmmmm. I don't think the film 'Final Cut' (1998) has got that great reviews, despite it being really smart, funny and very original.
