I thought it would be fun to list what songs you chaps feel are some of the greatest made.

The Blower's Daughter by Damien Rice - one of the most beautiful and haunting songs of unrequited love I've ever heard. When playing, you can't help but reminise of previous mistakes and oppurtunities that you missed. Stunning.

Hysteria by Muse - a fuzz drenched blizzard of sci-fi paranoia and schizophrenic anger. Conjours up images of the white orb chasing No. 2 as he tries to escape through an Edwardian setting.

Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana - the song that changed my life!

Crazy Horses by The Osmonds - don't laugh! For a sugar sweet boy band to release one hell of a rocking song that pretty much stays in th emind of anyone who listens to it has to be impressive.

God Gave Rock and Roll To You by Kiss - the ultimate stadium rock song! The type of song that makes you want to don those skin tight jeans and bullet belt whilst punching the air with your fist. The chorus is guaranteed to create a mass singalong in any venue.

Bohemiem Rhapsody by Queen - yes, I know it's an obvious choice, but you simply cannot beat it.

The Tourist by Radiohead - never has a song perfectly encaptured the spirit of loneliness, and the incredible sense of forboding that the inevitable onset of age brings. We've all been there - lonely, feeling that everything is against us, yet the days seem to flash past your eyes and you feel you have no control whatsoever.


There are many, many more, but these are just the first ones I thought of as I typed this. Feel free to add yours, and then add additional ideas as they come to you.

One is great! Ever listen to it with head phones on? Chopper flys from one side of your head to the other. That video made me have to watch jonny got his gun and read the book.

Yeah. I remember back in the days of Napster (old napster harrr pirates yarr), I found a version of One that had been modified with Starcraft wavs. It was neat.

So does anyone besides me and Biceps listen to Industrial?

You know some of the best by Rammstein ( as far as I am concerned anyway),
is Ich Will, Hierate Mich, and Engel.

Haven't heard too much skinny Puppy but I love Ministry. (Hero is an incredible song)

Just listened to Something I Can Never Have by NIN. I'd completely forgotten just how awe inspiring that song is!

I haven't really listend to much industrial music. I've got the latest Rammstein album, along with a couple from KMFDM, VNV Nation, Die Krupps, Frontline Assembly and the Lords of Acid.
