Mine's pretty simple. But I like to try to keep things to one band, and not just list half a dozen bands. 10 ('95) - Nirvana 15 ('00) - Pavement 20 ('05) - Pavement and most likely 25 ('10) - Yo La Tengo

LONG time lurker right here. I don't know why, but I'm picking this thread all of threads to reveal myself. Time to do this before I think twice. Age 10 (1997): Psh. I probably had like 5 CD's at this point. The Offspring, Blink-182. Age 15 (2002): Weezer, The Who, Beatles, Zeppelin (high school classic-rock phase FTW), Tool, Bad Religion, At The Drive-In Age 20 (2007): The Ramones, Weezer (still), The Replacements, Bruce, Afghan Whigs, Wilco, Ween, Pixies In retrospect, not a ton changed between 15 and 20 except for a few indie bands here and there. My tastes basically straddle the line between indie and punk on a regular basis. EDIT: I might as well take this time to thank the SOMB for making people give a shit about Jay Reatard. That is all.

10- Eddie Rabbit

It takes a confident man to admit this. ;) :lol:

10 (`86) - Ozzy Osbourne, Bruce Springsteen

I would have liked half of you when you were a kid. I would have abused the other half.


Mine;
Pre-10 (1967-72): I was the youngest of 7, so this was what I was hearing in the house from my parents and siblings) -- Sarah Vaughan, Gordon Lightfoot, Simon & Gar, Hendrix, Beatles, Mamas & Papas, etc.

10 (1972); Early favorites were Cat Stevens and Stevie Wonder

15 (1977); Discovered Springsteen in '75. Before I hit 20, I was also heavily into Dylan, Neil Young, Bob Seger, Allmans, John Prine, Southside Johnny, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison.

20 (1982); Springsteen, Willie Nile, Steve Forbert, Creedence, Michael Stanley Band, The Clash, The Who, etc.

25-35 (1987); I still listened to music, but I had kinda lost interest and only bought a few things here and there.

35-Present; I heard "Fell in Love With a Girl" and some Mooney Suzuki and fell back in love with music. My favorite new band since becoming an oldster is Sparklehorse. Oh, and Butterfly Assassins, of course. ;)


EDIT: So, EdVon, tell me all about myself.

10 - I suppose it was whatever my folks listened to, mostly - Beatles, Zeppelin, Stones, Neil Young - younger booomer staples...MTV wasn't far around the corner, though, and here comes "Girls on Film" and Cyndi Lauper and all that throwaway nu-romantic shit that's so, so great. And hip hop. Man, did hip hop flatten me & my peer group out like a sledgehammer. In the turntable documentary "Scratch" a few guys recall one of the breaks in Herbie Hancock's tune "Rockit" where there's some scratching - I couldn't get enough of that when I was 11 - 12 yrs old, scraping the arm of my cheap record player across the grooves.

15 - was turned on to some mainstream non-mainstream bands like early (read: interesting & good) REM - started going to shows in the City: Naked Raygun, 7 Seconds, Misfits, Minor Threat, Fishbone, Descendents, Youth of Today (all the awful SXE bands), Bhopal Stiffs, Jane's Addiction...loved it loud, fast & lean.

20 - Stone Roses, Archers of Loaf, Verve, The Pogues, Built to Spill, Oasis, Flaming Lips, Dandy Warhols, Galaxy 500, Jesus & Mary Chain. Hello, drugs!

25 - all the above & more...lots of going back & forth in time - from The Faces and The Band to Atari Teenage Riot - my mid-20s fell apart at the thematic seams & was a free-for-all...way it should be, I reckon.

I've always hated Nirvana.

You don't actually need to know anything about anyone to form an opinion. Helps, but it sure ain't necessary.

10 years old, 1993 - Tchaikovsky, Bartok, Shostakovitch 15 years old, 1998 - Smashing Pumpkins, Beck, Beastie Boys 20 years old, 2003 - The White Stripes, The Shins 25 years old, 2008 - Steve Earle, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy I dunno, the way this kind of came out was whatever my favorites were of the moment. I guess it should be noted that some like The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Paul Simon, David Bowie, Ryan Adams kinda span large swaths of time for me and are more or less always present in my listening habits. It's funny how the gap from 15 to 20 years old seems so fucking huge and then the gap from 20 to 25 seems like it was like a snap of the finger.

5 (1985): Raffi, Sharon Lois and Bram, Sesame Street, whatever my parents were listening to at the time

Somewhere around the age of 9/10 I started paying a *little* more attention to music. Got my first "real" albums. Around the age of 10 (maybe 11 now that I think about it) started liking the "heavy" stuff, possibly as a reaction to the fact that everyone else loved top 40 and pop r&b. My tastes were derided.

10 (1990): Guns n' Roses, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Video Game music, whatever my parents were listening to at the time (esp the Beatles)

I'd say around 13/14 (1993/94) was when I really became a huge fan of music, i.e. it became an important part of my life and not just background noise. Jumped on the seattle - and later, "alternative" - bandwagon. Nirvana and the Pumpkins and Pearl Jam ruled my life and made me despise the pomposity of my previous favourites, "cause their music is so REAL mannnn, not like that bullshit on the radio". Lol.

15 (1995): Smashing Pumpkins, REM, Faith No More, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Sonic Youth, NIN, Stone Temple Pilots, RATM, The Beatles

My tastes changed radically during this time. I went through a punk phase (Pennywise, Snuff, Bad Religion) and many others: ska (Hepcat, the slackers, Specials, Bosstones), anything that fell under the umbrella of "alternative" (from 311 to Sublime to Our Lady Peace), jesus even a rap/nu-metal phase (Korn, Limp Bizkit). *Shudder*. Only a few core favourites survived from 15 to 20, and despite some patently embarrassing taste, it was also during this time I discovered the likes of Radiohead.

20 (2000): Radiohead, Oasis, REM, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Mr. Bungle, DJ Shadow, Matthew Good, Coldplay

Somewhere around the age of 20 I discovered the magical isles of the UK, and P-fork approved indie rock; I think I can pretty much leave it at that.

25 (2005): The Smiths, Ride, Cocteau Twins, Talk Talk, Doves, The Verve, J&MC, My Bloody Valentine, The Stone Roses, Pulp, Blur, Broken Social Scene, Interpol, Stereolab, Primal Scream, BRMC, Libertines, New Order/JD

My tastes haven't changed a great deal in the last 4 years, though I suppose I've become a little less forgiving of bullshit landfill indie. Now takes more for me to consider a band a "favorite"; I'm certainly less apt to jump onboard with any new pitchfork band like I was when I was 20.

30 (2010): Considering how soon this is, it's safe to assume most of my favorites today will be there.

Some artists, once they became part of my personal canon, have never really left; so its actually kinda redundant for me to lists bands like the Beatles, Smiths, Radiohead, REM, MBV, etc

Journey is awesome. But, it'd actually be:

10: Beatles, Cat Stevens, Fleetwood Mac
15: Van Halen, KISS, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath
20: The Cure, The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Rush
25: Thin Lizzy, AC/DC, Yes, Red Hot Chili Peppers
30: Bob Dylan, The Band, White Stripes
35: Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash

With Journey Escape running all the way through.

I fully support people doing drugs on the streets. I'm sick and tired of people being selfish by doing drugs in the privacy of their own homes. Do it on the streets where you can share with your friends and neighbors. It's the Christian thing to do.

It's funny,yet understandable, that many people (re: guys) list Weird Al. I had his first album & loved it. I gotta boogie on my finger & I can't shake it off!
