I'm a little different...I don't have favorite albums. I have favorite bands and listen to all their CDs.

Even the CDs that aren't the greatest, I listen to them from start to finish.

Rage Against the Machine, Chevelle, Tool. By far, my favorite bands


Deftones, ACDC, Bob Marley, Doors, Godsmack, G 'N R, Beatles, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Hendrix, old Korn, The Hip, Pearl Jam, Zeppelin, Ramones, White Zombie, Rolling Stones, Seether, STP, Rise Against, even Nirvana. Audioslave & Sound Garden sometimes when I can tolerate Chris Cornell.


There's more I'm sure...

I think it's pretty simple. I said no greatest hits but didn't mention anything about live albums because I see that as a different situation.


This was supposed to be fun but I guess you can't handle it somehow Chan.


I'm like a woman, huh? **** off.
