    I'm not a fan of country music, but listen to this gal rock out. Very impressive!

    Grohl is arguably the coolest geek ever.

    Not really rock, although they did rip the riff from Steve Miller's "The Joker"

    In memory of jazz legend George Duke. When he played with Frank in the early 70's, that line up of Mothers was hands down Frank's best collection of Mothers.

    Not my style, but impressive! Although, I did like Iron Maiden back in the day.

    Born in 71 so I wasn’t much into music in the 70’s. I guess I liked:

    The Village People?

    80’s it was all about hair bands:

    Motley Crue
    Kiss
    Dokken
    The Cult
    Cinderella
    Poison
    Guns N Roses

    90’s I went grunge:

    Alice In Chains
    Soundgarden
    Nirvana

    Now I like music that would make most of you want to jam a pencil in your ear to make the sound stop. Here’s a sample. Probably my favorite song right now:

    If the post above wasn’t enough to make you leave this thread, here’s another. I mostly listen to music at the gym and I am one of the few people in the gym to actually workout. I’ve worked out at the same gym for 10 years and I have ZERO friends or people I talk to there. I put my headphones on, tune everyone out, avoid eye contact with everyone and get down to business.

    My name is Gatorknights, and I like crunch in my music from time to time. I thought that tune rocked.

    Was born in '58. My favorite era in music is between 1967 and last month. I'm one of about 20 volunteer programmers for an independent radio station in Chicago so I get get to review lots of new albums and pick out the tracks to be considered for air time. The format is 40% recent indy releases and 60% whatever strikes the DJ's fancy at the time. I'm also training to be a DJ.

    My friend Joe is on the air right now. He's almost 60 but very current with his tastes.

    Happy Birthday EC!!! He was one if my guitar gods when I was a kid. I was able to get the riff down from this one, but the solo? Not a chance.

    Not my favorite band, but with a riff like this, and owning a stadium, it's pretty good.

    80s and 90s was a great era for women in rock and roll.



    Met Liz in a bar 16 or 17 years ago. Didn't even know who she was until somebody told me afterwards.


    Kathleen Hanna, the original riot grrl


    pre-Portlandia Carrie Brownstein


    The Deal sisters

    Duane Allman was the man behind that riff. Anywho, here's a little Replacements Memphis style.
