We didn't have a music topic here, so here's one!

I've seen music topics on other sites, with most being "what are you listening to right now" type of topics. This topic isn't that per say, but it's more of a topic with all the latest music news, discussions between members and yes, posting videos of music! Generally, this is a topic where members can hang out and talk music, regardless of genre or how old or new it may be! If you're looking for new music, post here! If you're looking to find out what a certain song is, post here! Is there a new release (or re-release) you're excited about, post it here! That type of thing!

Topic rules and conditions:

1. This topic *may* contain NSFW videos. Depends on the music videos posted here.
2. Please don't post more than 2 consecutive videos at a time. We don't really need this topic to become full of videos! At least let other members contribute to the topic first. Things like music news and discussion are fine though - only videos have the 2 consecutive post limit here!
3. Please no illegal downloads, links to torrent sites, links to file sharing sites, piracy sites, etc.
4. The other forum rules do apply!

Stop by, and enjoy yourself! :)

Depending how well this topic goes, I might make additional ones for Movies and TV shows. ;)

I'll start this topic off by dedicating this song to the NSA and other "spying agencies" out there.

Judas Priest - You've Got Another Thing Comin'

P.S. Funny thing, my wireless network is named NSA. :p

Oooh, nice! I really need to find more electronic/techno/dance/trip hop music for the 'ol collection (I got side tracked with bossa nova, lounge, baroque pop, chamber pop, etc. music).


I'm old school here and since Boo Berry will give you Judas Priest entries (which I like too) I've tried to give you other songs I've enjoyed over the years.

Click on green "Spoiler" tags [Songs] [Songs +] to see & hear (of 90+ songs thereabouts total) some good old ones I hope you'll enjoy - their in no peculiar order, and if you like one/some use the title and artist listed to find out more about the song(s). This is nothing except to get an ideal of the songs and if your interested - for the most part it sounds good to me on a pair of cheap PC speakers, some do have pauses/skips here and there.

That's a mighty nice list of artists/bands you've got there (plus I've got the majority of those artists/bands listed, in some form, in my lossless FLAC music library). :D
Having one post might become troublesome to those wanting to see the latest posts (such large posts!). I intend to be actively posting any and all noteworthy music news/articles here as it comes out.
Also using scrobbling services like Last.FM comes in handy when listening to music (check mine out, I'm all over the place with what I listen to!):
@Boo Berry
That's pretty nice of you to say Sir, as for blasting sweet wonderful rock music at 6AM (another Thread-that you mentioned this) this is probably like a cup of morning Joe to you, as it's to most people - to get the blood pumping after slumber rest.
I know there wasn't a day go by that when I was doing construction, that Rock Music wasn't also considered a tool with as much importance as the hammers, saws, and nail guns, required to get the job underway (break of Dawn in summers) and done.
Music is one of those beautiful things that fulfills us.

Music can be the Doctor of your soul, but then you have to admit some of it's just noise (at least to me), but when the artists renders something from their souls and with their passions, it's truly penetrating to another soul, and can lift one from their deepest blues. There's as much of different music types as people types. Agree

I'll have to check out your link, (to understanding how it works) as it will be new to me. . .
I see your point and understand using one post as you stated is troublesome.
What about this threads posting rules, #4 says forum rules do apply as well - maybe a linking to them in #4 for an easy find for everyone - as these are the Adguard Forums site rules and this (thread rules stated in OP) only adds upon them.
I did see, using the Spoiler method it only allows 5 Vids at a time in a Spoiler - site warning came up - when I tried 6.

Thanks for this thread I find great, :D Gass
Update / Edit 05-17-2017
PS: That's good to know about what you said on "MP3's", it's what I've a bunch of (poor man ways). I thought that news I'd found was to mean all MP3's were or would be toast now.

My suggestion for members and visitors - Leave this page/tab open in your browser and while you read/search/post in other parts of the site and keep a song playing in the background, flipping back here as it ends and start another one. That's a good way to enjoy two birds with one stone! [Songs] has bout 40 and [Songs +] bout 50+ listed playable links.

Fraunhofer IIS Pulls the Plug on MP3 Licensing

Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, developer of the MP3 audio data-compression system, has terminated the licensing program that allows companies to create MP3 encoders and decoders. This is probably not sad news for many audiophiles, who's contempt for the format’s lower audio quality compared with uncompressed CD quality. There’s no doubt that MP3 fundamentally changed the face of music distribution. Developed in the late 1980s and early ’90s, MP3 is an abbreviation for MPEG 1 Layer 3. It’s a lossy data-compression algorithm that reduces the size of an audio file by a factor of 10 or more—theoretically, without degrading the quality of the audio as perceived by humans.

@ Questions - I have, is will there be any backwards compatibility for anytime in the future, then if a software/app that we have (installed) now and don't update it - will it still play mp3's (forever) doing so?
{older PC's and Phones} Better is always better but a device makes the difference to storage and their abilities.

MP3s are here to stay (even though AAC is a superior lossy format). If anything MP3 is more alive than ever with Fraunhofer's patents expiring and there's plenty of encoders/decoders with active development.

Personally, FLAC is for me - I go all in with lossless. ;)


Tommy James and the Shondells - Adam Ant (and the Ants) - Billy Idol - Free - Aerosmith
From late 1968, the Tommy James and the Shondells group began writing their own songs, with James and Lucia penning the psychedelic tinged classic "Crimson and Clover". The song was recorded and mixed by Bruce Staple, with James tackling vocal duties and playing many of the instruments himself, and featured the creative use of studio effects such as delay and tremolo.
(sorry Adguard site said only five media types can be shown):(
A gentle-tempoed groove, "Crystal Blue Persuasion" from Tommy James and the Shondells, was built around a prominent organ part with an understated arrangement, more akin to The Rascals' sound at the time than to James's contemporary efforts with psychedelic rock.

Adam Ant is a British post-punk, new wave artist. He was the lead singer of Adam & the Ants until their split in early 1982, by which time they had recorded three studio albums. Ant, however, would go solo, and release an additional five studio albums throughout the 1980s and early 1990s.

Billy Idol, is an English musician, singer, songwriter, and actor. He first achieved fame in the 1970s as a member of the punk rock band Generation X. Subsequently, he embarked on a solo career which led to international recognition and made Idol one of the lead artists during the MTV-driven "Second British Invasion" in the United States.

Free were an English rock band formed in London in 1968, best known for their 1970 signature song "All Right Now". They disbanded in 1973 and lead singer Paul Rodgers went on to become a frontman of the band Bad Company along with Simon Kirke on drums.

"Lord of the Thighs" is a song performed by American rock band Aerosmith. It was written by frontman Steven Tyler, and released on the band's 1974 album Get Your Wings. Drummer Joey Kramer has said it is his favorite song to perform live. Kramer and singer Steven Tyler have each said that he alone was the subject of the song's title.
These 5 Videos and one off-site link Vid in this post I've tried to show you a very little bit of those changes that I really didn't get a full picture of when it was happening. If you notice early Rockers of the new rock age sound wore costumes (my other post with Vids of Paul Revere) and then it turned into a show as MTV came about, and then great stage theatrics shows and lighting followed, and then I don't know what happened as the grunge of flash and trash look took over the scene most part.
Not everyone knows if their younger, that this time of being born in the 50's - 60's to be a kid - teenager was to have 45's records and full albums, no FM radios, 8tracks or cassettes - you were doing good to find an AM station on the airwaves (not even a local station) and that it's signal drifted in and out, to hear about anything close of the 60's Rock age new music. I had a job pumping gas at 12 and worked for my own money to buy the vinyl's by the age of 14. I would stay at my Dads in the summer school breaks and holidays, which was in a major metro city and worked 6 days a week mostly 7AM to 9PM.

In my case I was to young for going to a concert. The black and white TV helped out some later on, when I remember running home after school to see a show called Action - Action - Action (I think it was called) which showed Bands preforming mostly on a beach setting, this in the late afternoons our time. Then much later a show called the "Mid-Night Special" on Saturdays where one saw some current Rock artists. We got to see who sang some of the songs we liked, also other early b&w TV shows now and then, you could see Rock artist of the time. To me I'm talking like the schedule as in holidays - that frequently seen on TV.

The 60's when I was preteen, and early 70's as a teen, we didn't have it like it's now with all the choice in devices with buttons and storage mediums, as we didn't have any choices really to live Rock shows, radio and current events to rock news of shows or concerts or who was doing what. There was news of the Vietnam War and protesters, as well as race riots that ran their lifespan durations daily in the news.

Even if there was a Concert close it's a far off drive to get to from a town that folded up it's sidewalks at 5:00 PM daily, (Moms home). I can't remember when a FM radio station aired in my town, but I got a big console stereo 5' long with my own money (that was $200.) to hear the only one FM station when I learned of it, and what tech there was other than a transistor AM radios cost a pretty penny then. When I was making 75 cents to a dollar an hour and then up to $1.50 in time. Gas prices in the early 70's was low as 10-15 cents a gallon in what were called gas wars, the gas station on the same block would drop it's price, then we followed to be lower by a penny or two. Then early-mid 70's gas doubled it's price to about .50 cents a gallon and later late-mid 70's gas shortages happened to where even / odd license plates ending numbers could fill up on it's corresponding calendar day.

I then had my rock radio and records playing a lot and Mom saying turn it down all the time - and why do you listen to that stuff that keeps repeating itself. . . Her sound was Johnny Mathis, Nat King COLE, old blue eyes Sinatra. She was open to me playing mine but at a whisper in tone almost. My stereo and a used dirt bike (both by age 15) that I bought was what I had to fill my teenage spare time.

My own kids born in the 90's said I'm bored way to much in 2000's - I laugh at it now. It's not like they didn't have the electronic console games and toys (walkie-talkies, RC cars, all-terrain go cart and their own TVs, stereos and the like) - that I never had given to me, even bought them musical instruments, a guitar - amp and keyboard hoping they'd pick it up.

This is Just an FYI of those times when young Rock music changed and changed the US as the US was changing all the same - your so lucky to be born much later, if that's the case, as the devices changed for the better to, in supplying the music in your choices of devices and mediums to it's delivery given to you ! :)

Chris Cornell (Soundgarden/Audioslave/Temple Of The Dog) died suddenly last night at the age of 52.

Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, died Wednesday night, his representative told CNN.

Cornell, 52, was in Detroit performing with Soundgarden, which had embarked on a US tour in April. Brian Bumbery, his representative, called Cornell's passing "sudden and unexpected" in a statement to CNN.
"His wife Vicky and family were shocked to learn of his sudden and unexpected passing, and they will be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause," the statement read. "They would like to thank his fans for their continuous love and loyalty and ask that their privacy be respected at this time."
The Grammy-winning rocker had performed Wednesday night at the Fox Theatre in Detroit.

Cornell began his career in the Seattle rock scene forming the band Soundgarden in 1984, which was influential in the 1990s grunge movement. The group disbanded in 1997 and released a greatest hits compilation the same year.
In 2001, Cornell joined with three former members of Rage Against the Machine to form Audioslave. Their most successful single, "Like a Stone" released in 2003.
Cornell also sang the theme song to the James Bond movie "Casino Royale."
Soundgarden came back on stage in 2010 for festival performances and had recently started touring again. The band tweeted Wednesday night a quote from Cornell: "What I look forward to the the camaraderie. It's what we missed when we weren't a band."

Rocker Dave Navarro mourned the loss of Cornell, tweeting: "Such a terrible and sad loss! Thinking of his family tonight! RIP."

Developing story - more to come
This is beyond terrible, as I've been a fan of his and Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog and Audioslave for YEARS now.

Now the Temple Of The Dog album is going to be extra sad for me to listen to.


Chris Cornell (Soundgarden/Audioslave/Temple Of The Dog) died suddenly last night at the age of 52.
A truely sad day :( I wish his family and fans all the best, as their in my thoughts.
52 is not old nor young (that's the age I lost my father), I look up on the 50's as the wisdom years where all life's experiences thus far seem to start having a meaning to what's left to live, giving an importance and priority to those remaining years of yours.
Appreciated the news and post.

[1st read the below omitting the inclusions of the ( ) meanings, and think on that.
2nd read it complete with ( ) and compare your thoughts of before and after and see what it means to you?]
Have you ever imagined a thought of-
These clay vessels that holds our souls are mere placeholders like effervescent bubbles in the cosmic fabrics framework of the cosmos in a sequential sprattle to the metamorphosis of our presentment into his holy grace.

These clay vessels (hardware) that holds our souls (software) are mere placeholders like effervescent bubbles (user interfaces) in the cosmic fabrics framework of the cosmos (space and time) in a sequential sprattle to the metamorphosis (conditioning) of our presentment into his holy grace (the Lord God almighty).

Same here.

Been watching the videos on YouTube of his last performance. He will be greatly missed! He did some fantastic albums with Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple Of The Dog in addition to his solo career (Euphoria Morning is an amazing album!). Poor Eddie Vedder is the last singer alive of the "big four" Seattle grunge bands. I doubt Soundgarden (or Audioslave for that matter, which did reunite earlier this year and was rumored to be working on an album) will carry on without Chris.


Todd Rundgren’s new album, “White Knight,” is a grab-bag of collaborations with fellow artists — among them, Trent Reznor, Daryl Hall, Bettye LaVette, Robyn, Donald Fagen, Joe Walsh and Joe Satriani, along with a lesser-known jazz singer and rapper or two. You could call them strange bedfellows if not for the uniting factor of somehow fitting in with Rundgren’s already eclectic career. For someone who’s spent most of a 50-year career crafting records alone in the studio, or giving marching orders as a producer, the sheer amount of co-writes, if not costarring roles, was an admittedly stretching experience.

But, at 68, Rundgren is suddenly pushing himself in other ways, like the sheer amount of touring he’s doing. Besides yet another stint in Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band this summer, he’s doing an inordinate amount of shows under his own banner, as a headliner or as part of the “Yes-tival” touring collective headlined by Yes. He recently flew out to Coachella just to guest on his classic “Couldn’t I Just Tell You” with teen upstarts the Lemon Twigs. All of this, he acknowledges, is part of a deliberate move to get back in people’s faces in a way he hasn’t always cared about — driven, he reveals, by reflection upon the sudden passing's of fellow unpredictable wizard/true stars David Bowie and Prince.
