I’ve always had a hard time coming up with “top #” lists for music related things. This is my first actual attempt at a list for my top 5 favorite bands of all time.
The first band is obvious to me, and to anyone that has talked to me for more than 10 seconds; the rest of the list is really muddy and not necessarily in order.
I’m going to try to keep this as simple as possible. I plan on having more posts on each of these bands in the future.
I fell in love with this band in high school and I’ve never looked back.
Favorite Album: Good Mourning
Favorite Song: Warbrain
Times Seen Live: 10+
Another high school band. This band really hit it well for me when I really got into reggae but couldn’t handle the roots music.
Favorite Album: Second-Hand Smoke
Favorite Song: Get Out
Times Seen Live: 0 😦
I’m in love with this band for so many reasons. They have changed a lot since their inception. Much like my aging tastes in music, they seem to run perfectly parallel.
Favorite Album: Red of Tooth and Claw
Favorite Song: Brother
Times Seen Live: 2
4. Old 97’s
