1. Green Day
2. Nirvana
3. Weezer
4. Gorillaz
5. The Black Keys
6. Reel Big Fish
7. Fall Out Boy
Then Beck, FIDLAR, and Blur in some order.
My top ten seems vastly different, although it doesn't express what I listen to that well. It's more based on whats influenced me the most, but that correlates with what I enjoy the most. I love everything from Nujabes to Japandroids to Miles Davis to Led Zeppelin. I've obsessed over every one in my top ten's discography and story except for Beck and Blur. I latch onto one artist and suck every piece of information I can out of them. I feel like I will soon do this to Blur, which is why I registered here.

Perhaps I'm remembering wrong...It's just I thought not too many responded (and some criticized him) when I posted an Elvis Costello thread in the former forum...

I've loved everything he's done...IE w/the Attractions and during the late 80s when he collaborated with Paul....."My Brave Face" was superb and lord...."Veronica" was something special as well! Also, his wife isn't that bad either....
