In this thread post 10 of your favourite artists and one song from each which you think defines them. Doesn't have to be your favourite song by them, just what you think is their most quintessential song. It will be a good way for people to see your general music taste and listen to some new bands. Post the reasons for your choice too if you would like.


The Shins

The Decemberists

Broken Bells

Young The Giant

Modest Mouse

The Colourist

Sunset Sons

Death Cab For Cutie

Colin Hay

The XX

Fantastic idea for a thread and great choices. There's a couple up there I'd debate putting on mine too but I won't do repeats to help expand the thread a bit. Also I feel like 'Australia' is THE Shins song, though maybe that's just me, Phantom Limb works too.

Note: My 10 favourite artists probably change on a daily basis.

Radiohead


Beck


Neutral Milk Hotel


Sufjan Stevens


Tame Impala


Chance the Rapper


Frank Ocean


American Football


Sigur Ros


The Avalanches

Great idea for a thread Dan :) This is gonna be hard ranking the list on favourite artists rather than songs but I'll give it a crack!

This is in no particular order:

David Bowie


Nirvana


Alice in Chains


Linkin Park


Deftones


Katy Perry


Paramore


Avril Lavigne


Red Hot Chili Peppers


The Smiths

Don't get me wrong guys, nobody has a definitive top 10 list. I could have easily put RHCP, REM, Gaslight Anthem, Travis, Fratellis, Milburn, Keane, Dananananakroyd etc etc etc in there. It's just 10 artists that you love and want to showcase. If you want to add more then feel free to.

I'm gonna check out these people that I don't know very well soon.

@Copy: Australia was on my list but so was Turn On Me, New Slang and Simple Song. I figured if people have ever listened to Shins then it's gonna be one of those songs which is why I chose Phantom Limb. Personally I think it's just as iconic as any other Shins song. And yes, Creep sucks.

@Bex: With RHCP, I was thinking Can't Stop but I have no problem with By The Way.

I love the musical selections in this thread so far.

Rather than choosing songs that are representative of the bands I've chosen, I decided to choose songs that are representative of my own personal journey with their music -- the songs that have impacted my life the most. I think that should give a more personal touch to an already awesome thread.

The Beatles


Queen


Antony & the Johnsons


Radiohead


Depeche Mode


Arctic Monkeys


Pink Floyd


Washed Out


James Blake


Koop

10 more? Yeah let's do 10 more. Probably won't comment too much on most of these because lazy.

Mac DeMarco


David Bowie


Kanye


Two Door Cinema Club


The Wombats


They Might Be Giants


St Vincent


The Smiths


Childish Gambino


REMI


Had a few more but wanted to mix up the genres a bit. Also really wanted to put Prince in but it's notoriously almost impossible to get good quality streams for his music. For the record though, I'd say either Little Red Corvette or Darling Nikki.

Joshua Radin

Bad Suns

Gaslight Anthem

Milburn

Oh Wonder

Stereophonics

My computer is so slow. Opening this thread means I have to stop whatever else I'm doing and wait 30 seconds or so for it to load.

If that's the case then I'm gonna edit my posts and just use the link instead of embedding a vid.

A thread so good that it destroys the hardware of those viewing it. Thread of the year material right here.

It's a great thread idea though, don't wanna sound like I was criticising it.
