I'm looking for songs with pro-environment themes to celebrate Earth Day with. Genre/style don't matter much... I'm pretty inclusive with my musical tastes, so feel free to give weird and crazy suggestions if you've got them.

Tierra by Xera, although the lyrics are all in Asturian.

Nevermore's "Matricide" is good if you don't mind a heavy metal take on how humans are destroying the earth and such.

Addendum: I have dial-up, and am looking for compact disc-oriented recommendations. I am unable to download music, or watch Youtube videos.

The it-thingy
Meta Four - Team Fortress 2's soundtrack can be mistaken for that of The Incredibles in places.

I'm looking for more hip-hop to listen to. I've enjoyed some albums by Common (Be and Like Water for Chocolate), Kanye West (The College Dropout and Late Registration—I used to like Dark Fantasy and Graduation, but not so much nowadays), and DJ Shadow (Endtroducing). Also fond of Gil Scott-Heron's jazz poetry (Small Talk at 125th Street and Lennox and Winter in America), if that helps.

What would be some good music in that vein?
well, maybe you should just drink a lot less coffee, and never ever watch the ten o'clock news.

Common, Kanye West

If you want the same alt-rap sort of sound: The Roots, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and most of the artists on the Rhymesayers and Stone's Throw labels.

DJ Shadow

RJD 2, Blockhead and DJ Khrush are the most of I can think of off the top of my head without going into trip-hop territory...

DJ Vadim as well.

In addition to The Internet (OFWGKTA affiliates, but not sounding anything like the rest of the group)

Enemy Mayan — I recommend "Seminole Wind" by John Anderson. It's country.

This is my signature

a Music that can accompany me while i am studying. preferably from media (i.e game or movie) not stand alone

The soundtracks for Pan's Labyrinth and Sunshine are some of my favorite background music.

Does anyone know any good classic-sounding rock bands from the past decade? I already know of The Darkness :D
And I can't think of one thing in this whole wide blessed world
That's more dangerous and frightening than you when you get bored
Definitely not a weirdo
You might want to try Rival Sons.

Any bands or artists with Billy Idol-esque vocals? You know, the low volume crooning and explosive shouts and growls?
Does anybody know any good groups similar to The Cat Empire? I fucking love that band, but they've only got so many songs. For those who don't know them (AND YOU SHOULD), it sort of a jazz/ska sound, from what I know.
When you say jazz and ska in the same sentence, I immediately think of Runforyerlife, but they honestly don't sound that much like the one Cat Empire song I've heard.
Which would be? Their style is pretty varied.
Don't remember the name, but it was their music video with a guy being chased by nuns.
Haha, yeah. That's So Many Nights. I'll look up the one you said anyway, thanks.

Stranger Things have happened...
Any good prog suggestions? (other than Pink Floyd?)

edited 1st Jul '12 10:07:59 PM by Rockonman


My two favorites:

Porcupine Tree - In Absentia

Elbow - Leaders of the Free World

If you're looking for a solid basis in prog though, you might want to check out these - they're basically essential listening early prog.

King Crimson - In the Court of King Crimson

Yes - Fragile

Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Brain Salad Surgery

Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick

Moody Blues - Days of Future Past

Electric Light Orchestra - A New World Record

Add a Rush record in there, and you basically have the foundation of classic prog. But I hate Rush, so I won't recommend an album, as I haven't found one I like yet.

Thunder, Perfect Mind
[up] I will second the King Crimson, ELP and Moody Blues LPs mentioned here. If you want a bit of a more... adventurous look at the origins of progressive rock, I would also suggest the following:
  • Pink Floyd, Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
  • Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, Freak Out!
  • The Soft Machine, The Soft Machine

P.S. I missed the Pink Floyd exception. Still, if you've not heard their first LP yet, it's quite different from most of their later work and well worth listening to.

P.P.S. My favourite prog-type albums are probably Super Ć by Boredoms, In Praise Of Learning by Henry Cow, Ege Bamyasi by Can, Hérésie by Univers Zéro, and Faust by Faust, but none of those are what I would call "beginners' material."
