My taste in music tends to stay on the rock end of the spectrum. I lived a rather sheltered life during the 80s/early 90s, so I never really got into rock from those eras. Although I am a pretty big fan of bands that do acoustic covers of their songs.
Some of my favorite bands:
Fall Out Boy
My Chemical Romance
Black Veil Brides
Bullet for My Valentine
Special Mentions: A Day to Remember <--- (Hilarious Punk metal band that also does awesome acoustic covers of some of their songs)
Ludo <--- (I just love these guys...their band is too funny and many of their songs show it. They've got some beautiful songs in their albums as well. They're one of those bands you can listen to the whole album and not skip a song.)
Boyce Avenue <--- (*AMAZING* acoustic cover band...they've covered a ton of Pop, R&B and Rock songs. These guys blow me away!)

I used to fall asleep to this coming back from the beach in the back of my mothers' 68 Baby Blue Mustang fastback
you can almost feel the sorrow as he plucks in this one...maybe a snifter of whiskey has been drunk to this

Every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.
I stated in my profile I don't listen to a lot of music. I frankly find it really distracting and unable to concentrate on anything (must be my music education--I am always analyzing the music). most of what I do listen to happens while I'm driving and fall under two categories: rock/alt and musicals. on my iPhone I have:
for musicals I have:
Nightmare Before Christmas
my favorite classical composers are Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Dvorak, and Copland
