All music should be played off the scale, it’s the law! Even my soundtracks have to kick ass!! :¬)

There are heaps and heaps of them, but for now I’ll say Rammstein’s Ich Will.

@FireMadeFlesh Damn i Love that song :)

@iammia Me too – it has to be loud.

Nearly anything by Bruce or the Stones.

Slayer only because it doesn’t seem right to listen to them softly.

I agree that Ich Will has a certain appeal to raw emotion, and a lot of energy.

However, my taste in German composition and performance tends more towards this. Let’s see which one is still performed in the next hundred years… or two hundred.

Nah, I only listened to Slayer the other day for shits and giggles. Sigur Rós is good to blast, personally. Also Einstürzende Neubauten and Skinny Puppy.

@CyanoticWasp I like your choice, but I prefer classical music to be quiet. Loud music has to be strong and somewhat raw. My favourite song up loud is called The Locusts, and is also the strongest song I know musically. It has an overwhelming power (particularly in the studio version) that makes it unbeatable loud.

@filmfann Have you ever heard Bettye LaVette’s version of Love Reign O’er Me from the Kennedy Center honors for Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey? It moves me to tears every time I watch it.

Anything from Coheed & Cambria, System of a Down, Deftones, or Thursday.

I cannot listen to Danzig quietly.

“Pour Some Sugar on Me” – Def Leopard.

I also feel the need to pour pitchers of beer down the front of my tank top.

When Dylan went electric, he told his band “play it fucking loud!”

I listen to most of my music at a comfortably high volume. My ears will probably hate me in the future, but it’s so enjoyable. One I particularly enjoy subjecting my friends to is Kaja Kaja Goo by Polysics.

Bolt Thrower’s Eternal War comes to mind. Just pure headbanging madness.
@Deja_vu Except for Diabolus in musica. It’s best to listen to it with the volume off

angelique_1's avatar

also if i want to actually hear the words to the sing or listen to the notes, ill turn it up and really listen to it.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Intervention by Arcade Fire needs to be loud. (The video of Battleship Potemkin is pretty good, too, even if I don’t get the tie-in at all.)
