Here's mine...


I'm a huge fan of The Metal but I think I'll start with some of my legendary, less angry, favorites.

Probably my favorite band of all time across all genres is Primus. I've seen them live twice, and I've seen Les Claypool live in his solo act once.

It all started with "Jerry was a Race car driver"

For those who don't know Les, fun fact: he once audition for Metallica and they denied him based solely on the fact that he is far too damn good for them.

I've seen tons of bands live (Slayer, Megadeth, Sepultura, Napalm Death, Cannibal Corpse, Korn, System of a Down, Pantera, Slipknot, Lamb of God - to name a few). But Primus is the band that showed me first hand the largest mosh pit I've ever seen, and it was to this mighty cute song:

A few thousand people went ape shit at the 1:37 mark.


I hold in high regard just about everything Claypool releases; if I had to pick a favorite song it is simply, Here Come The Bastards

Great choice @AQfumes

I listened to a lot of Death Angel back in the day. Had a few of their albums on cassette! In particular was the Album, "Act III." I listened to that start to finish hundreds of time in my early teens.

I often say that I have no real taste in music as in preferential genres and such. I just love GOOD music. Which I know is a cop out...  because there are genres that generally do nothing for me.

But in terms of pieces that I will drop all I'm working on to just enjoy the sonical experience I'll give a few picks:

I am a movie nut so most of my favourites are related to that. From classics like Princes of the Universe:

https://youtu.be/VEJ8lpCQbyw

Or Flash Gordon:

https://youtu.be/LfmrHTdXgK4

But I can't fill the list with only Queen so a bit of more modernities slip in with Daft Punk sometimes:

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5wIANSfIdw_7vtJe9T5Y5WTiF2kAnZoW

Or Vangelis: 

https://youtu.be/EV95Yu6gZSY

And while some people called it monotonous, I loved the sound of Fury Road:

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpdRrmiqbfWPV6OwkPtaX4cMWgszSIlnX

And while Heavy Metal got all the fame I actually prefer the lesser known Nelvana production (yes... the studio behind Carebears):

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtwY8DZtI2Eqasfz-78ouabvz34gYXiMA

Outside of movies I love one musical  in particular:

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZh-ijTJHOA-auy0nSEQbEGe2idC9K-6e

And in Anime noone has yet beaten the trio of

Yoko Kanno:

https://youtu.be/oAczwhihCyk

Susumu Hirasawa:

https://youtu.be/SqvMYMyt3Vk

And Joe Hisaishi

https://youtu.be/X9mGQU7rGGM

Oh... I almost forgot the Maestro himself!

https://youtu.be/toCjPy2ABCg

And lastly, if I've  been too high brow:

And:

I would have posted the Chris Hadfield Space Oddity but you guys beat me to it. So I'll stop the list here and immidiately I'll kick my self for forgetting someone obvious.

I often listen to Jeff Wayne's The War Of The Worlds at work. Epic musical.

Queen's Flash Gordon is in my Spotify Elite Dangerous list, but I should add Princes Of The Universe too. Highlander isn't scifi (well, Highlander 2 is, but let's never speak of it again), but the song sounds appropriate for a space game. 🙂

Here's a cool one. Journey Of The Sorcerer by The Eagles. If you don't recognise which TV series used this as it's theme then you need to watch better shows.
