I'm really hitting a wall trying to find some new stuff I can vibe with. I need some good suggestions. I like literally a little bit of everything. What/who is your go-to right now? Maybe we can make some sub groups like: when you're working out, girllin' hanging with friends, when you're in the car for hours, what you don't want people knowing you listen to, lol. Just anything.

    I HATE almost everything my daughter listens to and most of what my son listens to.

    But I really LOVE both my kids.

    I'm pushing 40 but I still love listening to pop punk. Been going back to MxPx and old Fall Out Boy lately. Real Friends and State Champs are good current groups.

    When I was driving from College Station to Houston I was Jamming to old old Patty Griffin and Sturgill Simpson. And ancient Ronnie Milsap

    That’s like the Stoner’s Starter Kit for college kids in Athens. It’s the same as what was being listened to back in the 90’s. Some will stick with the same after leaving Athens, but most people expand their library after entering the work force.

    Been doing the almost monthly run back and forth from ATL to the Gulf coast for many years now. My general on the road playlist runs with everything from easy listening to esoteric. Off the top of my head I'm hearing:

    Brubeck, Gourds, John Lee Hooker, Kevin Welsh, Los Lobos, REM, Buddy Miller, Coltrain, Outlaws, Julian Bream, Miles Davis, Capt Beefheart, Hacienda Bros, Debussy, Augustus Pablo, Beck, Randy Newman, John Mayall, Gershwin, Hound Dog Taylor, etc.

    Yep I know, not many contemporary artist. Working on that though.

    I mostly listen to a combination of grunge/alternative and country but some kind of off the beat soundtracks I like right now are "In hell I'll be in good company" the dead south, "sweat" all american rejets, and "rum" brothers osborne.

    I used to be a lot more into country music, but today's output is terrible. Eric Church is solid gold and is today's version of the outlaws of the past in country. Chris Stapleton has some amazing stuff too, but hasn't been able to top his first album yet.

    Other than that, I really like "Texas Underground" or "Red Dirt" country, whatever you want to call it. Robert Earl Keen as @texdawg mentioned is my favorite of that genre right now.

  • DCochranDCochran Posts: 809 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Well, I'll tell my age here but (actually, I'll be 50 in November..lol) I'm still 80s hair bands and classic country...

    When I'm feeling rock; The Eagles, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Def Leppard, Journey, Lyn Syn, Marshall Tucker band, the Bee Gees (oh, yeah...show em how it's done John Travolta!...lol)

    When I'm feeling country; Merle Haggard, George Jones, John Denver, Alabama, Joe Diffe, Hank Williams jr. Waylon Jennings, Earl Thomas Conley, Anne Murray

    Do any of y'all have spotify? Or are you just using Pandora? I think my wife just set up a spotify acct, what are some other good alternatives?

  • fitzdawgfitzdawg Posts: 248 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Not currently listening to much pop punk but my tastes are cyclical, probably will be back into it in a few months who knows

    I always liked The Story So Far on the current side. Dude ranch era Blink 182 still rides.

    Hardcore punk is go to but I know most hate it ha

  • KaseyKasey Posts: 28,855 mod

    I own so much of my own music I re-listen to that. I have to really like something new to buy it

  • fitzdawgfitzdawg Posts: 248 ✭✭✭ Junior

    I enjoy spotify. I had 10,000+ songs on my iTunes but then my ipod crapped out so had to find something else

  • DawgBonesDawgBones Posts: 2,181 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Ditto, especially with some classic Townes Van Zandt, and Guy Clark, thrown in.
