What bands have you been rediscovering lately?

Asked by SheWasAll_ (2026 points ) September 29th, 2009

In the past few weeks, I have rediscovered a couple bands I wore out in high school, and then remembered why I played them so much. What about you?

I’ve gotten into the “Ting Tings” lately even though I don’t tend towards popular music.

Here i go dating myself again: The Kinks. Ray Davies is a genius and their music is still fresh and unique. To a lesser degree, The Animals and The Zombies. @ShanEnri…The Moody Blues have remained high in my playlist since their first album Days of Futures Past and I believe they produced the greatest string of seven consecutive exceptional albums unmatched by anyone save The Beatles.

I hadn’t listened to much Pink Floyd in the past few years. I just started to again, and damn- that’s a good band.

For a slightly different twist to your question, if I may, here’s two bands I loved in my youth, but wore out, have recently revisited, and tho still good muisic, neither seem to carry the same magic they did in my youth: Creedence Clearwater Revival & The Allman Brothers Band.

@whatthefluther how many times have you seen The Kinks in concert?

Yesterday I put Hotel California – The Eagles, Pet Sounds – The Beach Boys and Tapestry – Carole King on my nano.

@SuperMouse…Sadly once. If I recall, they were banned from playing in the U.S. for a number of years during their early success and it was a very volatile band with quite a bit of fighting between Dave Davies and another band member who was a good friend of Ray Davies. And, the one time I did see them is a faint memory due to some occasional fairly heavy prescription drug use at the time, which probably put me at a level similar to that enjoyed by the band.
See ya….Gary/wtf

@whatthefluther I saw them three times in the late 80’s early 90’s, great concerts. Not to be missed if they ever swing through So Cal again.

I thought the question was “What BRANDS…” and I was all excited to tell you about recently re-discovering 2000 Flushes.

But, just last night, I fell in love with Flaming Lips all over again.

I just figured out that I had Franz Ferdinand’s first cd on my mp3 player. That was always a good one.

And the White Stripes’ White Blood Cells. AMAZING album.

SheWasAll_'s avatar

Awesome. And I just want to say that my iTunes is on shuffle and Calculus by 2ge+her is playing right now. Anyone else remember that MTV movie?

Credence Clearwater revival. Granted I’m not a HUGE fan by any means, but I caught a concert a couple weeks ago and they played a few songs that I used to really like, so I’ve tossed some of their stuff on my ipod and have been listening to them a lot.

Also some 90s bands I forgot about like the cranberries, garbage, leftover crack, collective soul, Toad the Wet Sprocket, and Del Amitri to name a few. lol there was some good music going on then.

I just attended a Dave Brubeck concert last week, and it was just as heavenly as I remembered. He is 69 years old now, and still going strong.

Pavement, Sonic Youth, Mojo Nixon

Ive been completely hooked on Rammstein again since last week after i saw their new video (WARNING: very NSFW)

song is so damn catchy

I also got back into Whitey and Murder By Death recently too.

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

@uberbatman lol rammstein’s hilarious. ”...now Don’t you see, I can’t get laid in Germany”

ubersiren's avatar

@uberbatman : I remember being very frightened of Rammstein when I was younger. I thought they were the debbil!

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

@ubersiren oh don’t worry, they are. that’s why they’re awesome.

I’ve never been one for rap but stumbled upon Southern Hospitality by Ludacris and got nostalgiabombed, just because my neighbor was a complete wankster and blast it all day. (We were about 7. :| )
I should also mention it’s one the rap songs I’ll mouth along to and feel silly but happy while doing it. No idea why I do this though

ShanEnri's avatar

I forgot a few…
CCR
The Beatles
America
Elton John
Fleetwood Mac
There are more, but I can’t think of all of them!

saraaaaaa's avatar

Barenaked Ladies
Collective Soul
Fiona Apple
Eels
Counting Crows
and A Fine Frenzy after they released their new album :)

saraaaaaa's avatar

@deni A fellow fan! Joyous! I had the wierdest dream about the band the other day…

Anywho, favourite song? I am currently massively into Call and Answer, and ‘If i had a million dollars’ lyrical genius

deni's avatar

@saraaaaaa ahhh! if i had a million dollars – a true classic!!! call and answer is good too. i love Old Apartment and It’s all Been done….but there really are soo many good ones

The Killers—I just liked the tunes when I was young (haha, a pun!) and now I really enjoy the metaphorical content and complexity of the lyrics.
