What music fits your personality?

Recommended Posts

Yoshi    54

Lots of people want to know what we listen to, but, how many have asked what the first song you can remember listening to, which actually influenced your personality?

My personality, current day, was highly influenced by bands like Linkin Park and Shinedown, whose album collections I hold (mostly) in their entirety. Anyone else have a few bands, in a genre, which they favor in a similar passion?

I don't really know if it's possible for me to say that there was actually a "band" or "bands" that influenced my "personality". My personality and outlook on life is far more influenced by the experiences I've had, and not based on any music choice. If I had to select some bands and albums that might have potentially pushed me in one direction during the development of the way I think about the world, I might say Flickstick might be one such band.

While I remember music way before Flickerstick, this band in particular has stayed in my mind the longest. When I listen to their album Welcoming Home the Astronauts, vivid memories of my youth come to mind. For instance, I was with my father hunting one day. He had just gotten hired to a company that sold first aid kits and the such out of the back of a van. We decided to take the van back into the woods and hunt, the day he picked up the van from the company. We found a nice place to get out (where we hadn't been before) and walked into the woods. We were in the woods lost for many hours, and it had already gotten pitch black out by the time we stumbled out of the woods. When we finally got in the van, my father turned the key and the album Welcoming Home the Astronauts started, and their song You're so Hollywood played.

Anyway there are other bands that do this for me, but the first one I remember being as impactful was Flickerstick.

I wish I could remember far back enough to find the first song I listened to, and I can't think right now of what it might be my first song. I do vaguely remember listening to Ted Nugent's Fred Bear when I was very young but...

Anyway here is a youtube video of the entire Flickerstick album Welcoming Home the Astronauts.

A good question IMO to ask would be "Can you think of an album or a band that fits your current personality?" I think this might be an interesting question to pose. Unfortunately I can't think answer that question myself.

Used to listen to this when I lived back in SA. All my brothers listen to it and it got passed down. Lovely album.

Nirvana "From the muddy banks of the Wishkah" 350x350https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ru/c/c4/Nirvana-FromTheMuddyBanksOfTheWishkah.jpg[/img]  had a huge impact on my life and formed me for a couple of years until I saw a Metallica live TV performance from Germany [video=youtube]

 which lead me into metal.

This was my teen years where things like music and such could influence you greatly.

Now I'm older and have my own way.

My mother always used to play The Clash, Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, ACDC and all the other 70's classics on our road trips. So I've spent many hours in a car listening to tone death family karaokes.

Later on, having three bigger brothers have effected my taste in music greatly, something I'm very thankful for!

I have enjoyed so much music, but these bands will always have a special place in my heart ^

I think that's a better way to ask the question. You captured the point I was trying to make. I just worded my question wrong. Thanks. :)

Update: I'm also going to edit the original post, later, to add music links to my favorite songs from the bands.

Madball, Pantera, Slayer, H.I.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Breaking Benjamin, Atreyu, Superjoint Ritual, The Misfits, Danzig, Marilyn Manson... and the list goes on and on and on. Music is my life pretty much. Almost every little part of my personality was molded by music. It's the reason why I am a complete asshole, and the reason why I am not very emotional. (also why I am a complete badass :troll:)

The first CD I ever bought was Greenday : Dookie.. i still listen to a few of the songs but that Rockin good time album stuck with me for a long time. It actually influenced me to learn the Drums, Bass Guitar, Electric 6 + 7 string and Classical Acoustic. But i have  since graduated to bands like Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Slayer, Rammstein, Black Label Society, Clutch, MegaDeth, Lamb of God and even Insanely complex music that sounds like nonsense to some.. such as Animals as leaders, The Black Dahlia Murder, The Faceless and so much more.. 

Ill leave you with some Animals as Leaders to listen to .. truly amazing guitarists.

Pretty much how I act in real life, usually the social outcast who doesnt give a fuck about what anyone thinks about me. I've grown to act the way I want, not the way society wants me to. In Singapore, I'm considered a social outcast, for a kid in the city, I dont care about the way I dress, the way I look most of the time, the things I say, the way I view things, the sports I do. Since Im someone who wears whatever the fuck he wants, talk about whatever he wants, do un-city like sports like hunting and shooting, hell even my choice of studies "Gunsmithing" is an outcast idealogy in Singapore, cause of all that, I think this song fits me best.

After all... I really... Really... Really.. Hate the city

When I was younger my Mom would play a lot of 60-80s rock music from when she grew up and got me into liking it as well. AC/DC, GnR, Golden Earring, Meatloaf, The Who, The Doors, etc. I was heavily into rock/metal growing up and still very much am and has been very influential on me. There's specifically one song by Golden Earring which was my Mom's favourite song and has since become my favourite since her passing.
